The creator of Mario wanted to make some insane changes to GoldenEye on the N64
Lmfao!! Worth the click!
That's absolutely hilarious. Fast forward to current and we have the tea bag!!!
Even Michael Jordan missed a jump shot every now and then. But wow, was Miyamoto ever off the mark on that one. Just goes to show the mindset of some developers from different coltures.
I think the article is actually the one that is missing the mark and is pretty misleading. Miyamoto didn't really want that scene in the game - he was trying to mock the violence in it and put it in perspective. He would never have actually put that scene in the game, but then he would never have made a game like that to begin with. He didn't call the game "tragic" and "horrible" because he thought it was bad - he called it that because he thought it was completely inappropriate at the time because it depicted shooting real human beings with realistic faces. That might seem silly at this time with the games we have, but back when Goldeneye released, it was one of the first that "realistically" depicted shooting human beings. I can remember my brother at the time being shocked by it as well, and he was only 21 at the time and was hardcore gamer. My 15 year old self played it non stop, but even I was aware of the controversial nature of it. It wasn't too long after Goldeneye released that the Columbine High School shooting happened for example.
You're points make sense and it would be hard to believe that Miyamoto actually wanted this in the game. I wasn't aware of any controversy around Goldeneye though especially when FPS games at least on PC were very popular. Maybe because I was exposed to much more violent games that I found Goldeneye tame or rather didn't think nothing of it at all.
Lol. Was he living in the real world? Has he seen a James Bond film
This was back in the day when Nintendo really didn’t want violent content on their consoles, especially games they themselves published. Still, I’m glad he didn’t get his way on this.
Absolutely agreed this is actually one of the biggest reasons that Nintendo basically lost the entire Home console Market and went portable only. Nintendo spent a lot of that generation trying to tell developers what they should do with their games this overstepping of their boundary literally had Developers going elsewhere when Sony created an option for them so I would say every time Nintendo said no and intervened in someone else's game Sony would say yes and let the system essentially be a blank canvas. Nintendo's attitude towards mature content on their systems is what inevitably lead to so many developers going somewhere else at the end of the day their job was to create a system not tell other developers what they should or shouldn't create on content they do not legally own. That hostile aggressive atmosphere on top of not even listening to developer needs is what gave so much fuel to the PlayStations existence
We love you Miyamoto, but damn I'm glad you weren't involved with GoldenEye haha
Lmfao my bro just no, Love you though'
Nice. But only during the closing credits. And I'm allowed to use weapons while doing so.
So I'm guessing he isn't a GTA fan then?
Still prefer Pierce Brosnan as Bond compared to the current one, though maybe because i played so much of this game.. And the current Bond has a more rough face more suitable as a villain.
In the new ones he's meant to go against the hero archetype, he is a cold-blooded but charming killer with a traumatic childhood.
I really liked GoldenEye, and Bronson. The game I'm indifferent about though. Most of the other Bronson films I didn't care for though, although Bronson was good as Bond overall. I do like Craig as Bond, but he lacks a lot of charisma that you saw from the older Bonds, and the movies are less dependent on story, and tend to take the action route. I do like the newer ones and how they had a story arc through all of them, and making it seem like it wasn't just a bunch of disparate stories....which is similar to how some of the old Bond movies were. I'm sure Craig would actually do well as an older style Bond though, he's a pretty good actor.
I was NOT expecting that, wow. My guess is he was being flippant though?
Miyomotto is silly, its part if the reason why nintendo can't shake their kiddy image and step it up to a more mature audience, mentality like that is whats hilding nintendo back from true greatness. I know they wete once a toy company but they have been in thr big leagues for a while now, time to make mature games or create 2nd party cimpanies that will, they did this in thr past with Rare and squaresoft for example.
Agreed I actually think Nintendo can still be known for that and other games if they did not have that image hurting them and holding them back as much as it has. I just think they need to start releasing more adult-oriented games in terms of narrative in those slowly see people accept it if they continuously do it over and over again. consider a long long time ago people couldn't even file them Microsoft having games that were not just Shooters in Racers but when the 360 released it was clear Microsoft spent a long long time changing their image so consumers understood that they weren't just about a few Concepts. So now it's not so weird to see Kinect games or lucky Tales or anything like that on Xbox One. But I would also say that Microsoft was lucky they only had one generation to shake off that image where Nintendo has had multiple generations of being the family-friendly Fisher-Price type of company. So I think they could find a healthy balance if they actually just start producing that type of content and slowly but surely people will begin accepting that this is something the company is known for and can be trusted to deliver. I mean it would be like Electronic Arts trying to release a open world single player game it's not saying they can't produce one simply that they very rarely produce anything like that in regards to action games anyway. But of Electronic Arts did this for at least two generations I believe it would sort of be understood that the company was about that life lol
hahaha that would have been crazy.
Cannot even comprehend
Wow that suggestion was odd as hell. Also the game is not tragic & horrible GoldenEye is legendary and a game i still own to this day.
Pitiful and nonsensical. Bless your heart, Shigeru Miyamoto.
god i hate that dude. with a passion. the worst thing is when brilliant dudes (he was great in his youth) can‘t let go. his recent games and ideas have been as stale as the state nintendo is in.
Stale? Wow you are absolutely clueless. It's fair if you don't LIKE the work he's currently doing, but to say stuff like Wii Fit, which is so far outside the realm of what anybody else has tried in the industry, is stale, is ridiculous.
