GameDaily's delusional list of 'overrated' industry people


GameDAILY's Chris Buffa has moved on from talking about the sad state of game reviews and giving lessons on how to be a better games journalist. Now he's after the big guys. In probably the most incredible grab for traffic we've ever seen, he explains who the top five "overrated" industry people are. Ready to hear the list?

  • Koji Igarashi (Producer of Castlevania)
  • David Jaffe (Creator of God of War)
  • Hideo Kojima (Creator of Metal Gear Solid)
  • Shigeru Miyamoto (Creator of most things Nintendo)
  • Reggie Fils-Aime (The only non-developer)
There you have it, the list of the most "overrated" people in the industry. Other than Reggie, who is a marketing guy and is paid for being "overrated," these other individuals are the industry. Shigeru Miyamoto is overrated, but American McGee merely gets an honorable mention? This list wasn't about going after those who are actually overrated, it was just finding the biggest fish to fry with only a dab of oil in the pan.
