Will Wright, the creator of one of the if not the highest selling PC franchise ever, you know, The Sims?...

Make fun of Gabe all you want but his work is keeping PC gaming alive, without Steam PC gaming would be practically dead. He also created one of the most iconic game franchises (Half Life) and is a peoples man. (he responds to every fan email, mail, request, etc that he gets)

Will Wright deserves to be on the list.

A few people from the industry that I like that did not make the list, Jack Tretton, Phil Harrison, Kazunori Yamauchi, and David Jaffe.

I also agree that Kojima should be sitting in one of the top spots but Kazunori Yamauchi should be sitting up there with him.

'Will Wright ???

Robert Bowling shouldn't get an honorable mention, although he seems like a cool person he's only relevant when IW is making a COD game or when Treyarch is making one and he's bashing it.

Edit: Reggie, lol! I remember all the high hopes Nintendo gamers had on him when he came out with his opening speech in 04, fast forward to 2009 and...

You make a good point, Elven.

Also, wxer, Kaz Hirai is on the honorable mentions list.

Oh man, I remember Moore's Rock Band performance at E3. Epic fail, though the singer wasn't any better.

The list is pretty good, however I would have liked to have seen either (or the combination of) the following:

1) Ted Price
2) Evan Wells
3) Phil Harrison
