I know it may be a little late in the year to even attempt this.
But what about for the 20th year of Doom, someone or some people tried to reach out to John Romero for this year's Cacowards, and maybe have him send a video to announce all the winner's and all that jazz?

I know it's a longshot, but damn, that would be badass if that happened.

Thought's and feelings?

It would be just awkward. John announcing awards for people he doesn't know selected by people he doesn't know. Doesn't that sound silly?

Not really imo, he's the founder of Doom, and he would be announcing awards for "mods" based off of his game, and I think it would be pretty cool for a 20 year anniversary thing.
Plus, this is the MAIN Doom website on the internet.

It would probably be biased because I think he plays everything in Brutal Doom

The entity known as John Carmack has transcended the idtech 1 engine, videogames, and primitive audio- and visual-based human communication methods.

I think the community can handle it just fine. Besides, John (Romero)'s flaky when you get him months in advance -- if you can even get him at all.

I'm cringing at how he's using the old version where the short torches made that horrible clicking

To be fair, I highly doubt Romero even played his own game with Brutal Doom at all

I can assure you that's a playthrough of a random scrub. I've seen it before on Youtube and I can look for it

Damnation would be a winner I suppose seeing as it's meant for Brutal Doom.

He hasn't played a game in his life.

Why not involve him more by having a special category, "John's Choice"?

I like that idea.
But than it would be the John's choice.

What would be the point? The Doom creators have moved on from Doom long ago.

That'd be pretty sweet. I'd be okay with being Romero's bitch. Seems like a nice guy.
