Game Virtuosos

We have all heard of musicians who are virtuosos. Their playing is amazing and impressive. Check out the 5th Caprice by Paganini.

So why can't there be game virtuosos? What do I mean by that? I mean why can't somebody be so good at art, programming and every aspect of game development. Personally, it is just a mental barrier and metal barriers are easily broken if you are open minded enough. For whatever reason, people view the disciplines of game development to be very different from one another. In reality they can all be achieved by one person. The biggest obstacle isn't expertise it's time. It takes time to make any discipline great but when technology gets better the time it takes a task to do becomes less.

We have all heard of the 24 hour game jam. I would like to see 24 hour game jams with only one person at the helm
