'Law And Order: Criminal Intent', that is a very obvious adaption of the 'Masters of DooM'
-description by David Kushner of the history of id software.

might have been more.
The behaviour and fate of the main characters have been showed in the way, as 'Masters of doom'

Kinda hard to make an adaption of a book that has not yet been released (at the time of the episode's intitial airing)

EDIT: ohwait, it was out in 2003 not 04, oops

Speaking of Masters of Doom, what's the story about that biopic Showtime was going to make on it? Has it already been made and shown and am I just living under a rock?

Haha, I actually saw this episode a while back and was like "WTF, someone read Masters of Doom". I hated the episode though because it made the two Johns look like assinine jerk criminals and also had a lot of misinformation about how computer games work, let alone about the people who play them.
