24. Emil Pagliarulo
Lead Designer, Fallout 3
Before coming to Bethesda, Pagliarulo hung with the greats at the sadly defunct Looking Glass Studios, lending design work to well-respected classics like Thief II: The Metal Age. Bethesda in turn has relied on him for tasks as important as the quest design of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. His success in that regard has led to him to become the head of design on the studio’s important Fallout revival. It doesn’t matter what nonsense the vocal minority spews about Fallout 3; it the project continues in its current way it could be another landmark work for Bethesda, and the game that could make Pagliarulo’s career.
