Molyneux voted #1 Visionary
The man behind Fable, Populous, Dungeon Keeper and Black & White has been named #1 in the games industry by his peers in a new poll taken this month. According to Eurogamer.net 9000 developers in the industry were asked who their number one man/woman would be and the results are as below.
(From 1. to 10.)
Peter Molyneux (Populous, Fable)
Shigeru Miyamoto (Mario, Zelda)
Jonathan Blow (Braid)
Will Wright (SimCity, The Sims)
John Carmack (Doom, Quake)
Mike Morhaime (World of Warcraft, StarCraft)
David Braben (Elite)
Sid Meier (Sid Meier's Civilization, Sid Meier's Pirates)
Masaya Matsuura (PaRappa the Rapper)
Dave Jones (Lemmings, GTA)
The man with the dreams managed to beat off some great competition for the top spot and if this doesn't make him feel like he deserved his BAFTA then nothing will.
