          with all the stock options, pension, 401k, etc he likely has, carmack is likely rich ten times over.

            That's one algorithm that was popular at the time, that he used, among with many other programmers at the time. People act like he came up with it, it would be like me typing 'git clone <package>' and claiming that I wrote that package and developed the theory behind it.

            That example is a good example of why he wasn't such a great programmer, because it demonstrates that he was just doing things that many others were doing at the time. The game he was working on happened to get big, but all of the other games that didn't get as popular probably had better programmers behind them, but worse marketers and graphic designers and so on.

            debunked
            >Speculation arose as to who wrote the algorithm and how the constant was derived; some guessed John Carmack.[7] Quake III's full source code was released at QuakeCon 2005, but provided no answers. The authorship question was answered in 2006 when Greg Walsh contacted Beyond3D as their speculation gained popularity on Slashdot.[6]

    if you put into an axis that measures popularity and capability, then it would be carmack. if you lower on popularity but increase on capability i'd say fabian giesen is more capable than carmack. jon blow is a very good programmer, but he is worse than both of these.

      game engines are really hard to make and blow is super obsessive about getting things right
      making the engine from scratch wasn't enough for him, he also wanted to make his own compiler... and an extremely complicated one at that. so now you dont know if the bug is in your rendering backend or a miscompilation lol
      also people like to say his games are simple and dumb but there's a lot more than meets the eye to them. the sokoban one has an insane amount of combinatoric interactions if you've seen gameplay of it, that's just a recipe for tons of bugs and design problems.
