    Another merger in the video games industry. These are two of the most talented developers around right now. Interesting to note, Bethesda publishes its own games, so I think the developers won't be harmed. :D

    No it's been pretty common knowledge among the fps world. Congrats on catching up though.

    Quake and Wolfenstein are a pretty small portion of the FPS world.

    I only play Valve games, but gg anyway. It's only id, who provided us with the engine on which Valve games are based.

    Isnt it more like... It's only id, who provided us with the FPS genre as we know it today on which every FPS game is based on.

    I'm no gaming historian.. but that sounds about right.. to me at least =P
