Top 100 Designers

IGN, for once, has compiled a list of some of the best game creators and designers throughout the industry.

Avellone, Tim Cain, and many other Black Islers made it on the list. Shigeru Miyamoto is named the best, which is understandable. Though, I don't exactly know why Todd Howard of Bethesda was placed higher than Avellone.

I try not to watch these lists. From the moment Warren Spector, Gabe Newell and Tim Schafer are placed behind the dude that made Madden and NHL, or the dude that made Counterstrike, I'm out of here. Myaybe, as an RPG player, I'm biased. But a Bethesda developer placed before Avellone? Awful.

I don't disagree with the Top 3, though.

Because of his successful (and soul-less) rape of the Fallout franchise, of course, along with the equally successful (and equally soul-less) Oblivion.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

What the?

Dave Grossman at 73? Ron Gilbert at 81? Brian Moriarty not on the list at all?

I hate IGN's lists. I stopped reading them when they named Half-Life 2 the #6 Greatest Game of All Time.

Yeah, IGN's lists used to be fun but they just have so many now and have a lot of questionable picks.

This game is on a top 10 list! - IGN.com

They don't have the balls to take Miyamoto out of his place, heh. That's why it's not even worth to consider much.
