Yeah, and he seems to ignore Id Software too



didnt Id make most of their money with the licensing of their engines (id tech 1-5)?

Interesting question. According to this site: http://doom.wikia.com/wiki/Sales between 1993-1999 Doom and Doom II sold a combined 4 million units (gross over $120 million worldwide). Not sure what they made from licensing.

No, and after iD Tech 3 they made an effort to license their engines less.
