Jason Hill, a games writer for the Australian newspaper The Age, recently wrote an article about Game Gods that mentions Wing Commander veteran Warren Spector. WC is mentioned first, but his name is more closely attached to some of his other titles such as Deus Ex. The list also includes big developers such as Will Wright, John Carmack and Sid Meier.
9. Warren Spector: Wing Commander, Ultima, System Shock, Thief, Deus Ex. Produces consistently original and thoughtful games that blend genres into refreshing new creations.
A famous issue of PC Gamer in 1999 also referred to Chris Roberts as a "Gaming God" for his contributions with the Wing Commander franchise. This might be a good time for a quote from the WC Movie.
Paladin: Some say they believed they were gods.
Blair: Do you believe they were gods?
Paladin: No. But I do believe they were touched by God.
