I regret to inform the awful forums that cool hair-having inventor of numerous classic games like BattleToads, Katamari Damacy, and Duke Nukem 3d, John Romero, has died.



He will be most well remembered for his various contributions to the gaming community including but not limited to forging the sword Daikatana and creating the Shadowrun role-playing system and SNES game, which was much better than the genesis version.



He is survived by his wife, children, and the Blade Runner cinematic universe.

I know that at a time like this it's easy to be in denial about John Romero's death. He's a spiritual leader to all of us, but we need to accept his death, find whatever closure we can, and move on with our lives. I feel like that's what he would have wanted.

For the argument is indeed trivial, but not so the separate wills thereby made manifest.


You're confusing him with Cesar Romero, television's Joker, who passed away yesterday at the age of 110.

John Romero did a lot of the non-engine programming, made the level editor, and designed most of the levels. He is responsible for the overall design of Doom being what it is, instead of the gay crap Tom Hall wanted it to be. He was also by far the least autistic person on the team and thus was able to communicate with other humans, make deals with them, and turn the games into an actual business that made everyone rich.

If you have any other questions about legendary game designer John Romero don't hesitate to ask

Tom Hall's doom would have been good and cool, but this comment is correct and John Romero is great

he started dating a teenage romanian girl when he was 30-somthing. he married her and brought her to the us when she turned 18 and she promptly dumped him once she had her citizenship lol

seriously though, romero seems like a cool, interesting guy when his ego is in check and he isn't running around a dallas penthouse telling people to suck it down or chasing underage tail

Once again someone trying to attribute John Romero's work to someone else. This is exactly like the time someone tried to tell me that the film Akira was created by some japanese guy and NOT John Romero. SAD
