TIME magazine has named Grand Theft Auto royalty Sam and Dan Houser in its annual list of the most influential people in the world.

Comparing them to Tom Wolfe, Balzac and Dickens, Simpsons executive producer pens the duo's summary, pointing out that their games offer "a smart take on American cultural history".

You can read the full entry - complete with an image of the pair neatly styled to match the series' own artwork - on TIME's website.

So who was the most influential? The readers voted for the bloke who made 4chan. TIME doesn't do a numerical countdown, preferring to group people together by occupation.
