50 Games Industry Figures To Watch? 37

Thanks to 1UP for their feature discussing important videogame developers to watch out for, as they list "...fifty people in the game industry - some you've likely heard of, many you've not - who we think will help define gaming the most in the next twelve months." As well as the John Carmacks and Warren Spectors of this world, notably overlooked figures on the list include Julian Eggebrecht of Factor 5 ("Eggebrecht's team is one of the few out there that actually try to tax the GameCube to its limits") and Yasumi Matsuno of Square Enix ("..the director of Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy Tactics... [now] directing Final Fantasy XII.")

    Err, this is people to WATCH, not "old heroes". Is Miyamoto really about to bring us to the next level of gaming? To be honest i'd never even heard of the guy until Slashdot started linking to all these interviews. I've never been all that thrilled by Nintendo games and i don't think i'm the only one. I know he did Super Mario Bros. or something, but by the same token i could complain Raffaele Cecco isn't on the list - he did Cybernoid, Exolon, Stormlord etc... but has he done anything recently? Is he about to break through with something new? Not really. It's the young crowd that are the ones to watch, the ones who are pushing the boundaries and trying something different, taking gaming to places it hasn't been before.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
