Yu Suzuki, Mastermind of Foward sprite-scalling games like Space Harrier, Outrun, Afterburner. Then brought Polygon racing games to the world with Virtua Racing and Daytona USA.
Then Single handedly invented 3D beat 'em ups with Virtua Fighter and we all know how many games that is still spawning now. Street fighter 4 for example.

I would agree that he has a perfect case to be inducted. I guess it's the western eyes still focused at the west the moment maybe.
John has pushed tech engines forward like no other... I still don't dig the unreal engines
