    As a programmer Carmack brought more to the house, but yet we can't shun the man who made Half life succesful. But contributing the most would have to be Carmack.

    I would have to say Carmack, to me, the others just build on what he began. But if it were up to me, I would say that Alexey Pajitnov, the inventor of Tetris, had a bigger impact.

    Except for DaiKatana(a hush falls over the room at the mention of the forbidden word), why wasn't Romero mentioned?
