'Who are your game dev heroes?'
Games inspire us to make games, but so do the people behind them. Here are inspirational developers, as selected by our Twitter followers.
Those of us who truly love games -- enough to want to make them a career -- are often in thrall to the classics. But as developers grow older, they can become inspired by the work of their peers, too -- and not just their games, but their collaboration, mentorship, writing, and speech. What game developers -- the individuals behind the games -- inspire people? That's the question Gamasutra posed to its Twitter followers on Friday morning, and the below responses (while far from exhaustive) read as a veritable who's-who of game development. Remember, if you're interested in participating in these conversations in the future, make sure to follow @Gamasutra on Twitter. The questions usually go out on Fridays in the late morning, Pacific time, alongside Tweets of our regular news, blogs, and original writing.
