“In our Hall of Fame we find those people who have made critical contributions to gaming overall. We have those who elevated game design to an art and those who elevated the art found in game design. We have members who have made contributions to the business side of gaming, and those whose contributions have been less in design and production than in service to the industry as a whole. And we have the greatest fruits of their labors enshrined there as well.” — Michael Stackpole, Hall of Fame inductee
