If everyone out there could form a "Dream Team" among video game producers or creators, who would be on that team?

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

Whatever you do will be insignificent. But it is very important that you do it.

Come for this 90 hour expansive experience filled with relatable characters and thoughtful mechanics that get turned upside down with alternating horror moments and meta references

The problem with some "dream team" lists is the personalities. Those we see as the video game greats tend to be leaders of projects, often with much freedom to direct it as they see fit. Put them together and there may have a few bumping of heads.

For me Peter Molyneaux's antics with Godus would rule out including him in any list. Once he would have been at the top but now he wouldn't be on it.

I would love to be part of a narrative team with Emily Short, even just collaborating together on a single project where we never even meet would be awesome (I'm a big fan of her work!)

And it would be awesome to work with Krzysztof Zięba for a game!

For game design, I current enjoy working with Stephen Dewhurst, but I would also love to work with Roberta Williams and Jane Jensen (not to mention they could also help with the narrative!)

I'm not sure who I'd want to work with for art, but I know I'd want it to be gorgeous digitally-painted 2D art.

I could do the programming, if it is a simple enough game, but I'd rather hire someone to do it so I could be freed up for narrative design tasks!

Also not sure about who I'd want to do the music. I'd hope someone else on the team would have a good suggestion!

Maybe a buzz-kill answer, but I don't think it works that way.

I don't think there's anything to be gained via a hypothetical collaboration between Shigeru Miyamoto & Shinji Mikami, for example, two legendary creative directors.

You would have to know a lot about accomplished high level developers who were not creative leads. I certainly don't have that knowledge.

Regardless of who else is on the list, I'd put Nobuo Uematsu in for the lead on music. That would be a fun team to fill out as well. There are so many new composers doing amazing work.

The guy that did Neo Scavenger paired with the guy that was the brains behind the lore in Morrowind and left shortly afterwards. The former would make the systems and world connections, the later would make the world.

Finally get a regular 2d artist like Gary Chalk or even better the concept artist from Rankin and Bass's Return of the King/ Last Unicorn. Then have Glen Yarbrough and America do the music. Just kidding, that would be too awesome and distracting. Get John Carpenter, he does great background music.

I'm confident I'll lose thumbage over this but first off, none of the over-hyped Japanese developers, they all suck (imho). shake Now that that's outta the way, let's get to the really good devs.

Sid Meier would be the President of any team I put together
Peter Molyneux for his vision
Warren Spector for his overall talent
Will Wright for his vision and abilities
Cliff "CliffyB" Blezinski for his shooter designs and understanding of fun
Chris Avellone Writing and design
Dennis Dyack A Great designer sidelined by personality conflicts, sadly

I'm sure I'm forgetting someone though...
