Zelda: Ocarina Of Time and Mario 64 were the most fun games I've worked on - Miyamoto

ONM: ''Shigeru Miyamoto has developed loads of games since Donkey Kong but he's never had more fun than when making The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time and Super Mario 64.

Miyamoto told ABC that he still enjoys making games but it seems that bringing Zelda and Mario into the 3D era gave him great satisfaction.'' (Industry, Retro, Shigeru Miyamoto)

I can't tell you how many times I've played through Super Mario 64. That game was my childhood <3

<3 Miyamoto

Same here, first game I ever owned and still one of my favorites. Only games that I love as much as that on would be metal gear solid and Demon's Souls.

Dude i'm the same way! I only love Demons Souls games, MGS/MGO, Shin megami/Persona, Monster Hunter, and Miyamoto's games (up until gamecube). But I still love the Zelda's on Wii and Mario Galaxy. But I HATE what Iwata's done with the Wii U (and have no intention of getting one anytime soon).

But lately, there are not many japanese games coming to consoles, especially ported to the West anymore. They make the best/deepest games, but are far behind when it comes to keeping up with current hardware.

@Donnieboi Just finished Persona 4 Golden, that has to be in my top ten games of all time. Yeah I usually prefer Japanese games to western ones, the west goes for a too realistic approach most of the time

It shows in how fun those games were.

we have yet to really surpass both of them.

Games now do certain things better nut there hasn't been 2 games to come around and dominate them or make them look inferior.

We need Mario 64 2....a sequel with 150 Stars and segmented worlds finding stars.....just like the good old days.

No gimmicks...just pure 3D platforming fun.

Have you heard of Super Mario 64 Star Road? If not I suggest you look it up. It's an incredible rom hack by a guy named skelux, 120 new stars in a new castle and everything, it's really like a sequel to mario 64. It even got mentioned in a nintendo magazine. Check out this trailer.

They're also some of the most fun games I've ever played, Shigy :)

Not to mention Majora's Mask! I sure hope the next Zelda takes some lessons from MM.

He should make Mario 64 2 the sequal. It's the best Mario game. I liked it even more then galaxy games even though those were cool to.
