Yu Suzuki of Outrun, Virtua Fighter and Shenmue fame will be accepting the Pioneer Award at this year's Game Developers Conference in March.
Deserves it. That man is a legend.
Indeed. Well deserved
LAME - give it to someone better, from a better company
better!!! I wonder if your that dude on kotaku talking about hideo kojima should get it. I can't think of anyone in the industry whos more verstile than Suzuki
You sir, are an absolute fool.
you named no one hmmmmm no your the fool. Games he made or produced Space harrier, hangon, outrun, Afterburner,G-loc, virtua racing, virtua fighter,virtua cop, shenmue. Didn't include a few Fighting, racing,rpg, flight,arcade shooter. Kojima only real fame is MGS and maybe ZOE. in case you didn't know this is an award for PIONEER not just sales
I wasn't calling you a fool. I was calling ForROME a fool. I didn't say anything about Kojima either. I think Suzuki is a god in the in gaming industry, and SEGA is my favorite company.
shoo I got all worked up.
You have disgraced Rome. To the lions with you!
I'm going to GDC this year. Woooooo.
man i really don't like kon u get 1 disagree from me lol jp but that avatar kills me every time lol
Suzuki is truly a pioneer of videogame industry. With his work he made so many breakthroughs that no one can compete.
The Shenmue Defense Force still alive and well I see.
You got that right! We are still awaiting the announcement from Sega for the Dreamcast 2 with a launch title of Shenmue 3!/s But yeah man just look at the Shenmue Dojo site its been 10 years since the release of Shenmue 2 yet the site is still very active and still getting news regarding the series.
Amazing developer. Gave me so many 90s childhood memories. Love you yu suzuki!
Shenmue, Space Harrier, Virtua Fighter. Yeah this guy deserves it.
It's really great to see developers that truly brought something special to gaming recognized like this.
sega's answer to miyamoto. the kiddies don't know but this man is a legend. still wish for shenmue 3 or VF:shenmue addition.
Just watched his own history on an episode of G4's Icons (when that channel rocked). Wow, this guy really is something. Wonder if he still works for Sega.
