Chuck Norris is scared of Fedor Emelianenko. Fact.

good on him, if anyone deserves it its him.
ID may not release many games its been 6 years since their last game released, but when they do release one its a doozy and talked about for years.
just wish they would hurry up and release RAGE so i can get my hands on doom 4 and quake 5.

Yu Suzuki should of got this, John wrote 1 type of game and 3 versions of it.
wolfenstein, then Doom, then Quake. All FPS and nothing really any good after.
Yu Suzuki, Mastermind of Foward sprite-scalling games like Space Harrier, Outrun, Afterburner. Then brought Polygon racing games to the world with Virtua Racing and Daytona USA.
Then Single handedly invented 3D beat 'em ups with Virtua Fighter and we all know how many games that is still spawning now. Street fighter 4 for example.
And his final gift to the world was Shenmue, so how the f**k John gets the award for invented one single game type is beyond me.

I would agree that he has a perfect case to be inducted. I guess it's the western eyes still focused at the west the moment maybe.

John has pushed tech engines forward like no other... I still don't dig the unreal engines :)
