When people think of billionaires, they typically think of people who are in the finance or entertainment industry. They don’t usually think of the gaming industry, which has quite a few billionaires of its own. The fact is, if you hit it big and create the next big game, there's a lot of money to be made. Whether they designed the games themselves or headed the companies that designed them, these billionaires made a fortune in the gaming industry. Some of them even suffered losses in the economic crash, but they still sit on top of billions of dollars. Many of the billionaires on this list have seen ebbs and flows in the amount of their fortune. The economy and their questionable business decisions have led many of these billionaires to see fluctuations in their net worth, but all of them have remained billionaires. These billionaires come from all walks of life. Some are from overseas, while others were born and raised in the United States. Some completed college, while others dropped out, or never got a formal education.
