Gaming legend John Carmack talks VR gaming's past, present, and future

John Gaudiosi | Sept. 9, 2014
Doom creator and id Software co-founder John Carmack has discovered a new passion to keep him working long into the night: The man who helped introduce 3D first-person shooters to the world is trailblazing once again, but in the virtual reality space.

Eventually, we do expect that we'll have the world of people living all day in their VR in some cases, but that's not where we're at right now. And that's just fine because we're still figuring out the design language for a lot of things.

One of the most exciting things from a marketplace standpoint is that nobody really knows yet what all these answers are. It's like the early exciting gold rush days of the early touch systems when the iPhone was first offering the App Store, and no one knew that [Angry Birds maker] Rovio was going to be a big success or the different breakout companies at the start. We think there's a great opportunity for people to go out and figure that out now with VR and possibly become the next billion dollar software company.
