Time Magazine is putting together its yearly poll for the hundred most important people in the world, and gaming is getting some representation. Making the list this year is Lionhead CEO Peter Molyneux and Penny Arcade’s brainchildren Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik.
No doubt fueled by the recent success of PAX East and their rabid internet following, the geeks known globally as Gabe and Tycho are currently sitting pretty at a startling #11. That’s just… wow. It’s really hard to imagine that those two, much as I love and respect them, could ever be considered more important than Barack Obama. I guess that just goes to show what we value in life.
Molyneux is, at the time of this writing, in position #69. Awwww yeah.
