Hmm...Jamil, Fried headed the entire gaming division at MS, which was hardly contained to just the crappy material you mentioned. He spearheaded the xBox's arrival in the console market, cementing into place and essentially knocking a hole in the Japanese dominated game market. If you can identify another American whose been able to scale such an indominable mountain the past ten years, then by all means, please introduce him/her to us.
