Submission + - Carmack receives GDC Lifetime Achievement Award (

Thorrablot writes: John Carmack will receive a special power-up on March 11, when he will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Game Developers Choice Awards. From the news release:

John Carmack and his team at id Software, the company he co-founded in 1991, pioneered real-time 3D graphics in game, setting the pace and the standard for other developers to follow. Carmack and his colleagues at id are credited with essentially creating the modern-day first-person shooter (FPS) genre with the PC game Wolfenstein 3D in 1992, and helping to popularize networked multiplayer gaming on PCs with the release of Doom in 1993.
