As for the current inductee list, the are about 30 inductees as of right now. Of course there are members of the industry such as Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and the Xbox design team. When it come to gaming champions you will find some familiar faces such as Billy Mitchell and Jonathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel but you will also some not-so-well-known talent such as Chris Mansfield, who has a World Record for the game Kicker (Shaolin’s Road), Tutankham champ Rob Barrett, and Eric Akeson, who masters the Turbo version of Ms. Pac-Man.
