“Inside our office, I’ve been recently declaring, ‘I’m going to
retire, I’m going to retire,’” Shigeru Miyamoto said through his
interpreter. “I’m not saying that I’m going to retire from game
development altogether. What I mean by retiring is, retiring from
my current position.”
“What I really want to do is be in the forefront of game
development once again myself,” Miyamoto said. “Probably working
on a smaller project with even younger developers. Or I might be
interested in making something that I can make myself, by myself.
Something really small.”
Is there any other artist who is more universally agreed-upon to be the best who ever worked in their field? We could argue all day about the best-ever filmmaker, novelist, painter, or musical act. I don’t think you can argue with Miyamoto being the best-ever video game designer.
