Although a game designer, Miyamoto spends little time playing video games, preferring to play the guitar, mandolin and banjo.[66] He has a Shetland Sheepdog named Pikku that provided the inspiration for Nintendogs.[67] He is also a semi-professional dog breeder.[68] He has been quoted as stating, "Video games are bad for you? That's what they said about rock and roll."[69] Miyamoto also has stated that he has a hobby of guessing the measurements of objects, then checking to see if he was correct, and apparently carries a tape measure with him everywhere.[70]

He's a weirdo. But a very respectable weirdo. I remember him since childhood. Responsible for some of my fav games back then.

Even game designers/developers can be eccentric,

Reminds me of how of how Hideo Kojima(the guy who created/mates the Metal Gear Solid games) seems to have an obsession with food based on the fact that a large portion(if not a majority) of his tweets being about food.

You say that as if it isn't a normal thing.
I'm not exactly "normal." Hope this isn't a problem.

This is a rather common character tic of architects. I do it myself, although of course Miyamoto isn't an architect.
Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

It's like if Doc Brown was a game designer.
