Jonathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel

Arguably the world's most recognizable name in professional gaming, Fatal1ty earned his spot on this list through his performance in a myriad of first-person shooters including the Quake series, Counter-Strike, and Call of Duty. However, unlike most other professional gamers, Jonathan's profile extends slightly into the mainstream as he has appeared in news media like The New York Times, Forbes, and 60 Minutes. His branded line of gaming equipment including precision mice, snacks, souncards, and more have secured his name will forever be recognized in the annals of gaming history.
