Will he redefine the gaming industry again...is originality a one man show? Or does it take a team of people?

It took a team in his case. He isn't a game designer. I can't think of anyone who has redefined it more than once.

True..I'm just referring to the inventive abilities that we all posses. Some one may have an idea and a "sorta" knowledge to get it started. Compared to now a days...where there is no "knowledge" to create something original.
True...but you have to admit...two separate engines, Quake/Unreal...a revolutionary step forward? DooM was much a step in the right direction, following Wolf3d. Doesn't it take a spark of imagination to push the "line" further?
Maybe I'm wrong, but the difference between Quake & Unreal, in terms of 3D...was the "boxiness" that Quake had(many more polygons), while there were less polygons and better textures with the Unreal Engine?
Now there's algorithms, that create curves/stretched textures between two points...
