Miyamoto: I want to make games you don't know you want


Shigeru Miyamoto, the be-everything guy at Nintendo we love so much, recently conducted an interview with Entertainment Weekly in response to his being named as one of Time's 100 Most Influential. As if the amount of respect we have for the man could increase, he found a way through his answers in this interview. Especially so when the question of creating something like Halo came up.

"I could make Halo," Miyamoto says. "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." And that's what we love about Miyamoto. He could be developing those kinds of games, but he'd rather innovate then compensate. We respect that, even if it means that not all of his games are going to be amazing.
