Don't worry Romero I never saw the ad.

Also I played the game a little bit and I think the general gaming community is a bunch of whiners. Sure it wasn't the best game of all time but it was far from the worst.

The bad reviews turned me off the game. I don't even recall the ad he talks about, I just remember PC Gamer pretty much telling me to stay away. I think the demo crashed my PC, but then a lot of things crashed my PC back then.

Indeed. John Romero was the final 'boss' in Doom II - the icon of sin :)

I don't think this guy need apologise. By founding Ion Storm he indirectly gave us Deus-Ex, which makes up for any amount of bad games IMHO.

Most marketing department is 900% over staffed. Just look at all the terrible ads on TV and mags. (Internet ads don’t count just like bloggers aren’t journalist)

LOL I played this game back when it was new... and it did suck. Even back in the day it was not as good as Shadow Warrior or Duke 3D... (sure it was more 3D then they where but the game itself sucked more then 99% of the games I have ever played)

Sure it was not as bad as E.T but it wasn't much better either...

So hes NOT apologizing for one of the crappiest games ever, but for the ad for the crappiest game ever.

God, THG must be hiring the same idiots that write headlines over at wired.com

[citation][nom]michaelahess[/nom]I loved that game, get past it's quirks and it was really quite good. Better than Halo by miles![/citation]
Not really anything to get excited about; Halo was utterly dreadful.
