well they are widely sucessful and basically known by every man, woman and child on the planet. however they invented a rather basic game. whereas minecraft really innovated, I think our audience will be a little biased to minecraft as a result!

If you never heard of those companies you shouldn't be on this site. I personally don't think any of those companies innovated that much. I have both games and love them, but minecraft copyed most of there mechanics and artstyle from another game, it's still growing and becoming it's own game though and angry birds is so insanely basic and idea has been doing millions of times but they added a nice artstyle that is really all.

BTW, the site didn't have it when the poll was added. So you know... "If you never heard of those companies you shouldn't be on this site" makes the whole situation seem ironic.

Not really considering angry birds is probably one of the biggest games around you would have to be living in a underground shelter to not know what it is, meaning if your on a game dev site and don't know about angry birds then you need to catch up with the times xD.

developers that are normally on this site don't have time to play other games anyways majority are busy working 24/7 :/, Just becuase they are game developers or programmers does not mean they like playing games personally. i myself enjoy programming in any form not so much playing games all day lol

Really, I don't understand the craze behind Angry Birds. I mean, it's fun I suppose, but it's not really anything too new. I remember playing a flash game called Crush the Castle which is essentially the same exact game but in a medieval setting, and it actually was released almost 8 months before Angry Birds by Armor Games. Personally, I think Minecraft is a much greater feat of game development, and it's still growing and developing into a bigger and better game. However, there hasn't really been anything new to come out of Angry Birds other than new platform releases and holiday skin packs and whatnot. I realize this poll is focused on WHO I'd rather be and not the better GAME, but regardless I'd rather be whoever developed the better game, which I believe to be Notch. Of course, I'm happier being me instead of either of them, but I felt like that was a cop-out answer and basically just a way to invalidate the credibility of the poll's results. I'd be much more interested in the results of a poll with just the first two choices.

The one susceptible to inflation, greed, and generally being printed out of thin air, with nothing of value backing you up? No thanks.

Could understand if somebody would like to be a gold nugget, though. Even if an unrefined one.

Money is just a tool, nothing more. One should only try to get it to further your goals, not to collect it. Once all you think about is money, it's time to re-think a few things about your life ;)

EDIT: That wasn't supposed to sound insulting to anybody, that's just what money is to me.

Rovio is a company not a person?

"Rovio is an entertainment media company based in Finland, and the creator of the globally successful Angry Birds franchise. Rovio was founded in 2003 as a mobile game development studio, and the company has developed several award-winning titles for various mobile platforms."

Both of them are impersonations of everything whats wrong with the industry today: laziness, not knowing anything about video games, and stealing other people's ideas.

Pretty much yeah, though I see this poll more as a "Would you like to be a rich guy?" except you could be yourself and be rich, so the poll remains strange.
