Miyamoto: "Designers Should Be Looking at Humans"

Legendary game creator Shigeru Miyamoto has some advice for game designers: Look around.

Miyamoto said that today's game designers shouldn't get strung-up by technology, graphics and polygon counts. Instead, Miyamoto believes that designers "should be looking at humans" for inspiration.

Miyamoto elaborated on that idea: "As game designers, the trend is often for concentrating on pushing graphics, or other capabilities, or network features in new games…But I like to think that game designers would be better off trying to think about things such as health or mental improvement, rather than technology itself."

Shut up, and design a (good) game Miyamoto.

Note: "Wii Smoke" doesn't count as a game.

I think it's actually him...he has a t-shirt up against it makes it look kinda like a cut and paste job.

Great, can't wait for the Wii Back Massager, the Wii Sugar and Cholesterol Tester, and the Wii Dental Cleaner.

Seriously though, the more he talks the less it seems likely that he will give fans what they want. Nintendo might have to put a B team on those sequels.

Because his house uses $50.00 bills as insulation.

See, when he says humans what region is he looking at? The fit Japanese market, the tubby American Kids, or the not really playing games European kids?

And lets not forget every human is fairly shallow and just looking for something sparkle, sparkle.
