If John Romero were to be immortalized as a philosopher....

#1 Posted by Pepsiman (2450 posts) -

Say that out of sheer irony, historians conclude that John Romero's body of work was philosophically profound and worthy of being studied as intentently as those of the Greeks, Nietzsche, Jung, etc. How do you think he would be studied under those contexts? Basically, what I'm asking is if you were a university-level philosophy professor and your curriculum had to cover John Romero, what exactly would you discuss?

The subject professor would come to class everyday with classic metal albums and proceed to preach that if you want to make a good video game soundtrack you need to have that kind of music in it even if its a high fantasy rpg.

Yes, his beautiful flowing locks would be the focus point of the lecture.
Though I disagree with the primary colors part. It should just be "Brown - Why it Is The Only Choice"

The main focus of his message would be how you only need to do well once. And do it well.
