Wii Music.


I kid, he's created a lot of great games.
But lately I think he's lost direction and a true understanding of what people are looking for in a video game.
It's not Wii Fit, or Wii Music in my opinion.

Personally, the last good game he's had a hand in is The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

I commend him on all his past achievements, and he'll always be a "gaming god", so it comes as no suprise that IGN picked him as the top developer of all time, the games he's created have had so much effect on gaming as a whole it's hard to fathom, however I still have to question his relevance in this current gen of gaming.

I think he's affected the current gen more than most of the other devs. You can hate on his new offerings but it's brought into focus that after games get realistic enough people will want controls that are more intuitive. The wii is not perfect, but nothing is really. Most people will disagree with me because you've seen me bash the ps3 (that was for fun) and all that jazz. I feel that the next gen will improve because of everything that was learned this gen. Then maybe we can find that console that fits in between the hardcore and casual, and doesn't put off either side.

PS: I think a lot of the gaming community didn't like wii music lol. I bet he'll learn from his mistakes.

at number 30 he put kazunori yamauchi who changed the industry with one car game and the professional players use this game to learn the tracks.

Hideki Kamiya should have been on the top 10. Having created games in many genres and always succeeding is a feat that very few game designers have. Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe and Okami. I mean that's crazy, what's even more crazy is that he has yet to make a game that has averaged below 90% on gamerankings. Please do mind that the "ports" usually gets a lower score.

Having said that I think Miyamoto definitately deserves the nr 1 spot. I mean come one, who manages to create games like Mario, Zelda and then doing crazy but very enjoyable spin offs like Mario Party and Mario Kart that no one has yet to really succeed in copying. Also coming up with the Wii was a brilliant idea, hardcore gamers might not dig it but you can't deny how brilliant it is from a business perspective. Earning money not only on the console itself but on peripherals too. That's just crazy how they can rip people off and at the same time having the demand outdo their supply 2-3 freakin years later.

Who would have thought! /sarcasm

Parapraxis is right, then man deserves the honor. I don't really care for his newer offerings, but hes got that great past that makes it all OK.

Ew, Cliff Bleszinski is on the list.

Max Power4000d ago

i was going through it from the beginning but once i saw Nomura in the 80's i stopped

Tony P4000d ago

Bleszinski came in at 40.

Will Wright always reminds me of Clive Owen, physically.

Anyway, it's a good list, though I expected to see Nolan Bushnell somewhere on it... Everyone should give this a read so you know a few of the guys behind those games you're so busy playing.

I wished they used a different picture. That picture makes his teeth look nasty. (or are they...)
