Respected Id Software co-founder John Carmack is to be inducted into The Academy of Interactive Arts and Science' Hall of Fame on March 22nd, joining such industry legends as Shigeru Miyamoto (Mario), Sid Meier (Civilisation) and Hironobu Sakaguchi (Squaresoft). The prestigious honour is to be bestowed upon young Carmack at the Fourth Annual Interactive Achievement Awards. Well played that man. Carmack's works include the various Quake engines, Doom, Doom II and other Id titles. His forthcoming work on Doom 3 is unlikely to be demonstrated any time in the immediate future, but many suspect it will be the most impressive yet, and on a sadder note, possibly the last true first person shooter to come out of Id's doors.
