And the iPhone voted the most influential platform ever in the London Games Conference.
According to Eurogamer (via MyNintendoNews), the majority of the 1,000 people surveyed (26%) believe that Steve Jobs is the leading man who shaped video games. Meanwhile, Gabe Newell, the co-founder of Valve – one of the most influential companies in the industry – received only 16% of the votes. Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Mario – the most recognizable game character in the world – received only 7% of the votes. Oddly, Mark Zuckerberg, a guy who hasn’t done a darn thing for gaming (not directly, at least), received 3% of the votes.
I could really understand this coming from "casuals", but these guys are supposed to be avid fanatics of video games, some of them even professionals who earn their bread with gaming. This is absolutely ridiculous.
PS: Sorry if old, didn't find anything in General Discussion.
