Also, way to take stuff out of context:

"I could make Halo. It's not that I couldn't design that game. It's just that I choose not to. One thing about my game design is that I never try to look for what people want and then try to make that game design. I always try to create new experiences that are fun to play."


Too bad he's failed miserably since the mid 1980s.


Do you "like" anything?


Sure I do! I'm just not a Nintendo fan...nor a fan of the Japanese game style in general. There are exceptions (EDF, Katamari, Dark Souls), but they're few and far between.

Miyamoto hasn't really done much that has impressed me in the past 20 years or so. I don't understand the love the guy gets while geniuses like Peter Molyneux get hatred.


Miyamoto doesn't constantly lie, Peter does.


Peter doesn't intend lie. He comes up with ridiculous things for games that he wishes to implent in the game. The thing is though he has no idea about how to do actually do it.
It's equal to a child saying they want to be a Kung-Fu astronaut

actually no i disagree, japan apparently cant make a shooter that'll be popular. look at the ones they've made this gen, one of them was good but the rest were flops. can anyone guess which one was good?

Exactly, you can't pander to what everyone wants because it's humanly impossible to do so, even if the game becomes mega popular there will be someone who hates in the most irrational way possible. For every fan there will always be a Francis. (AKA Troll, Play Super Paper Mario, Nintendo basically had how trolls work pegged)

Miyamoto plays it safe. Miyamoto's games are boring rehashes.

Like Peter Molyneux doesn't play it safe?
It may have been different when he first started out with Populous but now he just keeps spamming Fable over and over again and that wasn't exactly the revolutionary title he played it up as, it was just a middle of the road Western Style RPG.
He talks about revolutionary ideas all the time but only seems able to materialize generic games these days.

And now for something completely the same.

We don't have to pretend to like Molyneux anymore, he left MS.
