Don’t Hate Doom III, It Stacked Paper to the Ceiling: “Some people don’t like id Software’s Doom III, saying, yeah, that game just isn’t very good. Company CEO Todd Hollenshead has a message for those people: ‘I get this occasionally — why don’t I think Doom III was successful? We sold over three million units! It’s the most successful game in id’s history.’”
Maybe you could compare this to Windows Vista. Yeah, it’s sold umpteen millions of units, but I don’t know anyone who really, really likes Vista. Nor do I know anyone that kept it if they had a choice. There are those who kept it that do NOT have a choice, but they don’t count in this discussion.
