Question games designed for different systems

a friend of mine told me that game makers are now creating games to run specifically with certain systems. is there any truth in this? i know that doom 3 runs best with nvidia boards.

heh... not quite so... look at it this way ... nvidia(and intel also) pays them ****loads of money to put their logo and the words "played best on" .. means nothing... as a developer.. would you really want to lose sales from creating games that run on certain machines?!.. dont get me wrong .. nvidia kicks major *** and it probably DOES play best on.. but not because it has a printed add on it saying so...
look at it this way .. how many times have you .. or anyone here seen "plays best on AMD" ?! i didnt .. thats because they dont have to advertise kick *** CPUs .. they just make em =D

Nvidia plays better on Doom 3 because they simply have the better technology, not because of a logo that they put on it. If fact, I don't remember seeing the "The Way It's Meant to be played" logo on Doom 3.
