everything needs to be rewarding

Sandy (Petersen) regailed him (John Romero) about the payback a player should receive when blasting the lungs out of a demon with the shotgun. “you really should get rewarded on several levels,” he said. “you should hear the gun go off, you should see the big, manly guy cocking his shotgun, you see the bad guy go flying backwards, or an explosion. It’s always you’re rewarded for doing the right thing!”
