And part two is already on the front page...

My god, that's the very definition of ironic. :P

And that picture with the title? Ahhh...never mind! I'm sure there will be plenty of people to make the comment I was going to make lol. Anyway, the first Fable was fucking awesome!

Whoever wrote this article should be ashamed of himself.
His knowledge for the industry is very limited and based on hype.

I still can't believe people like Yu Suzuki, Shinji Mikami, Suda51, etc... were left out and then we got people like Cory Barlog up high in the list.

Disagree with me all you want, this is just embarrassing and if you don't acknowledge what those developers I mentioned done for the industry then I bet you started gaming in this generation.

Perjoss2718d ago

ashamed for giving his opinion? or maybe you should not take everything you read as if it were poeple stating facts.

Rikitatsu2718d ago (Edited 2718d ago )

I can understand Opinion, but this is just total bullsh*t and inexperience.
What did Cory Barlog did to the industry compared to Shinji Mikami and Yu Suzuki for example? Who were both excluded from this little list.

If you can convince me of that, then I can pass it off as an opinion.

But its not, its already a fact that Barlog doesn't even compare to people like Suzuki and Mikami (etc..) if you look at it objectively.

Perjoss2718d ago

calm down mate, perhaps you could write your own list, it does not seem that hard to get your own news approved here on N4G.

Rikitatsu2718d ago (Edited 2718d ago )

I'm just pointing out how horrible this list is.
Its these kind of sites that give birth to the "Halo invented FPS!1!" kids.

Give credit where credit due, Cory Barlog is worthless compared to other legends.
Mentioning him up high like that is either fanboyism or just plain ignorance.

If you're going to pass this as an opinion, you will have to convince the readers.

Just check the reasoning of the author:

"Barlog is a keen gaming blogger so we’ve given him a 2/5 rating for celebrity"
*facepalm*

ThanatosDMC2718d ago

Uwe Bole or however you spell his name is also the best movie director ever apparently. /s

55million GT games + bike games = 60 million sold.
Influence: 3? The GT games were the very foundation for most console sims to date! was this a joke? By their scoring system it should be 60*9*1.5*3*5 = 12150 which puts them 8th place not 11th. He deserves a higher influence and celebrity score than that...

We know that Namco’s Kill.Switch was the first to use the mechanic in this way, but Gears did it so well, we’re giving Bleszinski a 4.5/5 for influence

Fail, Wingback say Hi

-------------------

Halo: Combat Evolved is influential. Sure it has its haters and devoted followers, but it coined regen health and created an FPS experience the likes of which had never been seen before.

Fail Halo was not the first game with Regen Health

----------------------------- -

Call of Duty has spawned countless imitators, including the next Medal of Honor title.

Fail. MoH is older then COD

----------------------------- ----

Lists Fails overall. Where are devs like Sid Meier, Gabe, Suda51, Nomura etc?

fastrez2717d ago

Perhaps those guys didn't make the list because they didn't sell enough games compared to the other entrants? I'm not suing that's the case but I think the guy here has taken units sold as his first criteria

And yes MoH is older than Cod, he obviously meant that the next MoH is inspired by MW2... I think?

:/ any idea?

DelbertGrady2718d ago

No Sid Meier. No John Carmack. No Gabe Newell. Wtf?

Theonik2718d ago

This. So much fail on this list. Using Celebrity status and System seller multipliers is also retarded. Just because a developer is not that famous because he chooses not to be media whore that shouldn't influence his value as a developer. Also if he doesn't make exclusives because he wants his game to be enjoyed by the largest audience possible that also should not be counted. Only entry i agree with is Miyamoto.

BeaArthur2718d ago

The article lost credibility before I even clicked the link with that picture.

MajestieBeast2718d ago (Edited 2718d ago )

No David Jaffe fail list fails cliffy B before Kazunori Yamauchi yeah right 1 makes the best racing games the other is a overrated blow heart that launched a broken game. No Gabe,Nomura,Fumita Ueda,John Carmack.

You are seriously deluded and an obvious Xbox fanboy.

jlar2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

EVERYBODY IN N4G SHOULD REPORT ALL THE WORST TROLLS AS SPAM. THE MINOR ONES AT TIMES MAKE IT FUNNY AND ENTERTAINING, BUT THE CONSISTENCY OF SOME IS JUST FLAT OUT STUPID.

WHY DO TROLLS ACTUALLY THINK WE CARE ABOUT THEIR BIASED OPINIONS???
A: CAUSE THEY ARE LOW-LIFE PEOPLE, IN WHICH NOBODY IN REAL LIFE CARE WHAT THEY SAY.

TROLLS ARE SPAM I SAY!!!!!
