The legend, and innovator of First Person shooting games John Carmack has just been awarded his third lifetime achievement award this month. During an interview with Kotaku, John mentioned he had to wait like everyone else and wasn't able to get an iPad early. Come on Mr. Jobs, have a little respect for this guy and send him one!
John has been very active in bringing games to the mobile platform. ID Software will have a major release coming to the iPad and iPhone with the new upcoming game RAGE.
