I am going through a tutorial and I noticed that all the classes have initialize and shutdown methods on top of the constructor and destructor. I understand the purpose of an init, where you may need to declare but not actually define stuff yet, but the shutdown confuses me as you could just do all that stuff in the deconstructor. Is there any reason to use a shutdown, or even an init for that matter? Or should I be putting that stuff in the constructor/destructor?

I should mention that the "stuff" in question is mostly DirectX stuff.
