Thanks for the links. Just finished watching 3 videos on id software. Great stuff.

I only wish someone made similar videos about Amiga gaming industry, the one I grew up upon. I think they had the best game for personal computers in the early nineties. Doom tuned the tables, yes, but in art design, presentation and that magic factor, id's stuff was rather dull compared to Amiga games. I mean, Commander Keen compared to Turrican II simply blows.
