I actually would like to speak to Gabe Newell... AFTER he releases Half-Life 3!
Also, all of Team Ico.
Careful, he might try and make you his bitch.
Schafer. That is all
Honestly, it would be really easy to write a really long list here, but if I had to pick one, Tim Schafer is the guy.
Sakaguchi would be 2
The guys at Ghostlight for releasing so many RPGs that would never have seen the light of day over here.
All hail the playstation!!
Julian Gollop, that is all.
Another addition to my list that I almost forgot, The Bitmap Brothers
(I know it's a company as opposed to a person/people, but they made a few great games back in the day. Used to love GODS.
Sid Meier probably. Civ and alpha centuri were probably two games that sucked up more of my life than any other.
yu suzuki, even if it was just to thank him for the amazing masterpieces that were Shenmue 1 and 2. There will never be a game I want more than Shenmue 3.
