1. Yu Suzuki
Yu Suzuki, the creator of Shenmue, has blessed us and stirred The Heavens: It has been said that The Sun uses Shenmue as an inspiration to rise. And that it sets with disappointment, for each day that the third installment is not announced.
Shenmue III has The Heaven's anticipation -- but it is waiting for your demand.
2. Nobuo Uematsu
The music of Nobuo Uematsu has been known to cure Confusion and to repel Darkness. This Spirit Healer is called the King Midas of Composing, and you can tell this by the golden lustre he's laid down on the Final Fantasy series.
3. Adam Ryland
From humble freeware to complex (but not complicated) awesomeware, Adam Ryland has satisfied the quench of wrestling fans as the Stone Cold Steve Austin of computer programming. A toast, Mr. Ryland.
4. Greg Kasavin
A man who follows his heart and his dreams. He contributes to world peace everyday by working at Supergiant Games.
5. Jen Zee
Not only a skilled artist, who dare I say has bedazzled Bastion (I think I'm in love -- scratch that, I know I am), but a genuine and genuinely kick-ass person. Just like all her comrades at Supergiant Games.
6. Shinji Mikami
The creator of Resident Evil 4: one of the crowning achievements of gaming.
7. Akira Yamaoka
A music man with magic fingers. He has made your hairs rise with the haunting Silent Hill series.
8. Jeff Gerstmann
The Anti-establishment Dude, who not only felt but DID. Truth over money, truth over The Industry: thus became Giant Bomb. (Even the industry of video games - video games! - can be tainted by Outre-Capitalist Companies).
9. Vince Desi
For understanding that censorship is for pussies, here is Vince, who has executed against censors with extreme prejudice and panache.
10. Vin Diesel
He's Vin Diesel.
