Tie: Peter Molyneux and David Cage

Peter Molyneux is one of those guys that know what would make a really good game. He says stuff and you think: “Damn, that would be awesome!”. However, he is incredibly bad at ensuring the implementation of these ideas are as good as he hypes them up to be. Sometimes it is incredibly difficult to tell if he genuinely believes his product is meeting his hype, or if he is just over-hyping his ideas to promote sales. Either way, it feels really dishonest and this has enraged a plethora of gamers around the world.
David Cage is a character that likes standing before you and pulling himself off over his massive ego. A lot of what this guy says, when you break it down, is that he doesn’t give a crap about his audience, or about making decent games. He considers himself an artist, or, as someone who’s tastes are superior to everyone elses. Honestly, he makes games that have some pretty decent stories, but the guy himself just needs to take a seat and hang back. Allowing the games to sell themselves.
