I think that best developers are actualy unknow.. because they are working, whilst someone else trying make easy money through self-promoting and big promises, or creating what stupid herd is wanting (aka be on right time on right place).
Other problem is that lots of developers lost thie edge after first row of success, developers have to be hungry, like boxers or gladiators before match.
Next problem is that coders and artists are victimcs of their designers and designers are victims of their producers and producers are victims of bankers. So be best in in your profession doesnt mean do good game.
As team going to be, bigger and bigger, role of realy genius guys is going to be smaller and smaller, because they are grinded up in corporate machine. And you have to be part of such machine if you are trying to make cuting edge complete game.
