It's hard to say who the best is because it spans over hundreds of years. If Morphy had the internet, and all current knowledge of chess, what would that do to current rankings. I think a lot about who would be on the MT Rushmore of chess.

Fischer, for all his negative impulses later in life, may be the most influential player ever. His championship match vs Spassky really caused a sensation in the US. Suddenly, millions of people who had no interest in chess began to follow the game. Some of them are probably still playing today.
