John Romero vond het nodig tot de wereld te spreken en zijn mening te geven over de mensen die Daikatana terecht afkraken.Thank you very much for taking the time to write me such nice emails about your first impressions of Daikatana based off the demo we recently released. Many of you are aware of the negativity that's generated toward this game on various forums on the internet, and a lot of that is due to the majority of people out there having a warped image of me, the game, and my company Ion Storm. I don't think I'm any kind of rock star or gaming god, that is ridiculous. All I am is someone who has a red-hot passion for playing and creating FUN games. You might not know this, but I have been making games for 21 years now (!), that's how dedicated I am to this industry and my career. Many times, my interest in what I like to play does not coincide with what might be the hot subgenre of the day, such as today's military-based FPS titles. I just finished playing Soldier of Fortune about 30 minutes ago and had a really fun time with the game, but I truly enjoy games based in fantasy of some sort with elements of sci-fi mixed in. That's why I make the games I make and all I can do is hope like hell that a lot of other people out there like what I like.
