Rayman Creator 'Doesn't Enjoy' Playing Mario Games

Rayman Origins, the newest game from creator Michael Ancel, is often compared to New Super Mario Bros. Wii. In our E3 preview, we called it "the best Nintendo game Nintendo will never make" and said that NSMB was "the largest inspiration for Rayman Origins' frantic multiplayer platforming action." But in a new interview with Gamasutra, Ancel calls himself "very different from Miyamoto" and explains why his philosophy is completely different than the Mario designer's.

Says the guy whose latest platform game just sold 10 copies

I don't see anything wrong with that. I don't enjoy playing Halo (anymore) but its still popular etc etc. My opinion isn't gonna change that. So long as he doesn't go hating on it then its fine.

I'm with this guy. If you are going to make a game based on FUN...make it FUN! I'm NOT paying $60 for Origins though. No way!

it's his right to not like mario, but "bashing" the controls and story telling while he made rayman: origins, that has good controls, but not as good as mario's and no story what so ever. also he says he focuses on storytelling ?!?
