    Sure. Thomas Edison just invented the lightbulb but what did he ever do that REALLY changed our lives. Sadly, most of the children on this forum are too young to comprehend what geniuses these two were in the realm of 3D graphics.

    Yawn...old guys doing the oldie circuit. I was there then and I am older them them both by far. Next up TV infomercials recalling the glory days of PC gaming with your hosts.......Great games don't lose greatness just like songs and I do give them credit for getting work just like movie stars gone to TV to commercials...gotta keep your name out there
