Really good coder, but his skill is way overhyped because he's a celebrity. There are plenty of people that are far better at what he does and talks about.

A genius operating on his own plane and with his own set of goals. Video games just so happen to be the means he achieves those goals by.

You can just tell just by looking that he is operating on a whole different level in comparison to the rest of the world.

Pretty much this.

I also give him credit for open sourcing the Quake engine which eventually became the backbone of most 3D game engines nowadays.

But, people chose the Quake engine not because it was great but because it was open. Plus plenty of people made 3D games without even touching the Quake engine or it's derivatives.

But what really bothers me is that he's revered as a god when there are plenty of devs innovating independently and go completely unnoticed. He hasn't really done anything extraordinary in the past 10~15 years but is still the hero of 3D programming. Honestly, fuck him.

Build Engine came out not long after and was more powerful. Unreal Engine blew out Idtech every step of the way and still dominates the market.
