Steve Jobs Voted Most Influential Man in Video Games

How do you decide who the most influential man in video games is? You conduct a poll at an iOS game conference shortly after Steve Jobs dies. roll eyes (sarcastic)

According to Eurogamer, the majority of the 1,000 people surveyed (26%) believe that Steve Jobs is the leading man who shaped video games. Meanwhile, Gabe Newell, the co-founder of Valve آ– one of the most influential companies in the industry آ– received only 16% of the votes. Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Mario آ– the most recognizable game character in the world آ– received only 7% of the votes. Oddly, Mark Zuckerberg, a guy who hasn’t done a darn thing for gaming (not directly, at least), received 3% of the votes.
