I personally believe he deserves every right to be in the Time 100 influential, his work truly is influential in the largest entertainment sector (gaming) in the world.  See what I have to say here and comment.

But I'd like to hear what you all have to say...

Does he? Does he not? speak out.

He is THE most influential man in the video games industry, and the video games industry is one of the biggest, and fastest growing entertainment industry in the world, therefore, YES, of course he does.

Compared to other people on the list, it's pretty inarguable. Although people seem to think this includes all his achievements, when I'm pretty sure this is just for the past year.

The entry was terrible, all about the legitamcy of pro gaming and little mention about Miyamot himself. LAME. They should have tapped someone not looking to promote themselves to write the piece.

No he doesnt.

Miyamoto should be nowhere near such a stupid list. Rain gets 1st?  Sanjaya 3rd!?  

thanks to favoritism and VFTW.com Time's 100 list is completely popularity and not a serious look at the influences of people.

But otherwise, Miyamoto is one of the most influential people. Whether people know him or not, they do know Mario!

Actually... I agree.  I take back my previous statement.  Miyamoto should not be on that joke of a list because he is completely in a league of his own.

Of course. If it wasn't for him, a lot of people wouldn't be enjoying video games.

Your right the list is a joke of a popularity contest but I still want him on there, he deserves all the cred he gets.
