Fired?

Wow, John Romero was really fired? I though that he left id Software because he wanted more control over his projects... --Kyano 13:03, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

What actually happened has been a heavily debated subject and we might never get to know the full truth. The arguably most trustworthy source on this is the Masters of Doom book, which the author did a huge amount of in-depth research for. If I remember correctly, it is stated in the book that Romero was basically pressured and forced to quit by the other id guys, Carmack acting as the spearhead behind the decision to do that. -- Janizdreg 22:37, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

I can't believe he got fired!?!? WTF
