That's because they're western developers with clear reign. Mikami was a tight-leashed slave to Capcom for quite a while. Either way, they may be more well known to video gamers, but they are not as well respected in the video game industry as Shinji Mikami. I think it's hard for anyone in the video game industry to take Bleszinski seriously after his whining at Jim Sterling's review of Gears of War III.His record is unquestionably legendary, yet more people seem to know "CliffyB" and David Jaffe over him.

Alone in the Dark started the 3D survival/horror genre; Mikami just made an incredibly better game that skyrocketed him to fame. He also didn't "revolutionize" third person shooters in the slightest with Resident Evil 4. If he did, they would all have tank controls and everyone would have to pause the game to switch weapons. Bleszinski is far more influential on 3rd person shooters than Mikami ever was.
