This one is easy:
Shigeru Miyamoto: He made all of my favorite gaming characters ex: Mario, Link etc. He made the first games for Nintendo and has made the company into what it is today. His original way of thinking and endless ideas make him my greatest idol, in fact, I try to make my games/ideas after his princaples.
Hideo Kojima: actually, I'm not sure about how much I look up to him, but he has a very uniqe way of thinking and makes brilliand games: Metal gear solid, Boktai etc. He has confermed in an itervew that Shigeru Miyamoto works as his master, so that makes sence.
Don Rosa: Not so much anymore, but I still think of him as someone important. Actually, he is mostly known por drawing Donald Duck. ..... Don't look at me like that! The thing that makes this worth mentioning is that he does something few other Donald drawers do, he actually makes a story! He is a brilliant artist and studies for months before making a comic. If it tells you anything, he studied under Carl Barks, known as one of the most famus disney artists in the world (he died not too long ago actually).
well, that was my list. I still have a few more I could have mentioned, but I'll spare you the misory :rolleyes:
