I saw this news bit at the Shack the other day, and it kinda stuck with me. Have a look at this profile of id Software, makers of Doom, Quake, and free-flowing 3D goodness, at Red Herring. The company has sixteen employees. You could say they're doing OK:

FINANCIALS Profitable. Owned by artists Adrian Carmack, Kevin Cloud, and John Carmack. Has not accepted venture capital and has no plans to go public. Last year's revenue exceeded 1999's $22 million. Revenue in 1998 was $19 million.
Who needs to make any more games? They might as well go play with rockets now.
