The above is an example of his art, the devastated Madison Square as it appears in Crysis 2. If it wouldn’t be such an old cliché, I’d say you truly are a master of desaster, my man. Speaking of which, eurogamer.org carries a recent interview with John Carmack, the master of Doom.

And, yes, both games are decidedly cyberpunkish. Here’s the Dead City from Rage:
