Nearly 30 years ago, Jordan Mechner – the man who went on to create Prince of Persia – received a fan letter in response to his earlier work, one-on-one fighter Karateka. The author praised Mechner’s graphics (particularly the scrolling background), and mentioned that he was a budding programmer who wanted to grow up to create games.
The young letter writer was John Romero, who did indeed grow up and create games, helping to popularise the FPS genre while he was at it.

The German Government had removed classic 1996 shooter Quake from its list of indexed titles. Prior to its de-indexing, general retailers could not offer the iD Software title for sale, even through mail order. Bethesda seems to be in the process of appealing the indexing of iD Software’s back-catalogue, as Doom and Doom 2 were recently let free, too; Germany allows appeals after ten years.
