Miyamoto Misses — The 5 Worst Games From The World’s Greatest Game Designer

Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto is the world's greatest video game designer. That doesn't mean he hasn't made his share of duds though.

The story is too old to be commented.

"The man's track record isn't spotless though -- despite his sterling reputation, Miyamoto's turned out a handful of stinkers throughout his career."

SACRILEGE! HOW DARE THEE SPEAK SUCH A CURSED LIE!!!!!

Draperc1411d ago

All bad jokes aside, I don't think Miyamoto actually had any involvement in the development of wii music. Sure he performed a song from legend of zelda during E3 but that's it I think.

ZidaneNL1411d ago

True. Probably all he did was keep an eye on things every now and then, but that's it.

Hideo Kojima is the world's greatest developer, not this guy and Hideo had no "misses".

@ZidaneNL

Likewise, not suprisingly most of Myamoto's work is Mario related. Yes, he also made Zelda and a couple of other great games, but Kojima has much better games.

Not surprising when most of his work is Metal Gear related. Yes, he also made Zone of the Enders and a couple of other great games, but Miyamoto has worked on way more franchises.

Are you high? Miyamoto created Pikmen, Zelda, Donkey Kong and Mario. I'm not saying he is the best, but I think its safe to say he has been far more creative than Hideo Kojima.

The easiest way to tell who is more important is by looking at where the main companies would be without them. Without Miyamoto Nintendo has NOTHING, without Kojima, we are without a couple of solid games, but nothing like Zelda or Mario. Hell, the last game Kojima made was 4+ years ago.

I do not think Zelda2 is THAT bad. Actually, I liked it.It is certainly the weakest Zelda game I have personally played, but the franchise is so strong that it's weakest game is still good.

I have never played the other titles, but it's not hard to see why Wii Music is on there.

ZidaneNL1411d ago

Agreed, Zelda II is not as good as the others, but it's not bad either. Besides, it was the second game in the entire series when it first came out. There wasn't a standard yet.

I'm sorry, but if it didn't have ZELDA in the for sure, as the game just sucked. The graphics were squarer and more plain than Star Tropics, the controls were TERRIBLE in the caves with the cheap AI, although the sound in the game was GREAT. But, all those considered, still adds up to be a terrible game, as it all isn't based on sound sadly.

All in all, I'm glad he redeemed himself.

Zelda 2 was one of my all time favs.. Its blasphemy to say it sucked... It had a darker tone kinda like twilight did & was pretty tough.. great game

The Best there was, The Best there is, and The Best there ever will be...

Miyamoto 4 Life!!

"The Hitman" lol...The pink n black attack is back?? No; "The $hit is wack, & that is that" fits better for Ninny.. Miyamotto is a genius when it comes to level design & puzzles so I must give the man credit for his work.. It'd be nice if he helped co-design @ least 1 M-rated game with a AAA 3rd party team & make a Ninny exclusive... Like they used to with rare when they made "Golden eye, Perfect Dark, & Killer Instinct."
