"During development of Smash Bros. Brawl, Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto of Nintendo approached me and asked, 'Can't we have Pac-Man as a guest character?'" Sakurai recalled. "At the time, imagining the image of Pac-Man and his incomplete pizza shape, I thought to myself, 'Hmmm... That's a little too farfetched.'"

There was this game called Paper Mario Sticker Star that was going to be awesome until Miyamoto came along and was like "What's this? Characters? Story? Humor? FUN!?! GET RID OF IT! I WANT NSMB THE RPG!" and then forced them to remove everything good about the series and make the blandest game possible.

Oh dear lord not this again. I'm prepared to see another argument about this game. Might as well bring up another heavily bashed game to even the odds.

You must've misread. He didn't want to remove Pac-Man, he wanted to add him.

Is it common for delusional people to make delusional comments to justify their otherwise valid opinion of a game?

I know, that's what makes it so awful.

Pac-Man is probably the most uninspired and overrated character ever.
