I have been following this man for quite a while on youtube.
And somehow he always makes the silliest topics on his youtube channel.
I normally ignore most of his hot takes but i do love his retro reviews.

But this time he really hits a nerve on shigeru miyamoto.
What do you think of this statement?
Is GAF treating this guy like a saint? He did ruin (in my opinion) mario sticker star on the 3ds and starfox on the wii u. Cause of last minute changes.

I have yet to play both of those games but I refuse to believe in the hyperbole, it cannot be *that* bad, some people talk about these in "Other M" levels but reviews and impressions don't give that vibe at all.

If the argument is based on those two games then it's a pretty weak argument.

*Rolls eyes*
What a monster!

Maybe don't put all your attribute points into "video games," ok?

Seriously, though, real talk - and I'm not even specifically talking about this thread - but what's with the massive influx of posters lately who can't even be bothered with basics like capitalization and punctuation?

Ok so two games? Pikmin 3 was amazing so that voids out the argument that he's completely out of touch. Due to the title of the thread I'm not gonna click on that baity video but none of this makes him a bad person or developer.

Now I personally think paper Mario was ruined with the Wii version and not with sticker star and I don't think Star Fox had much of a chance at being a compelling game. Everyone wanted a 64 styled Star Fox but that was never gonna hold up gameplay wise to today's standards.

Another "controversy" channel that gathers clicks by spreading misinformation. Best to ignore and don't give them the clicks.

In regards to miyamoto, no one is perfect.

I learned very early in life that sometimes, knowing too much about some things isnít necessarily a good thing, especially when that knowledge is second hand and has been channelled through the distorting lens of humanityís gossip addiction.

Take my love of Pink Floyd for example. Iíve listened to the bands music for over thirty years. I have their entire library of music on both vinyl and digital. Iíve seen the band perform at numerous venues and can play every note that Gilmour has ever written on my guitar.

Apart from knowing the names of the band members I donít know Jack shit about their personal lives and nor do I want to. Because itís not important to me. I donít give a single, solitary fuck what Waters eats for breakfast or what brand of toilet paper Gilmour wipes his arse on. Iíve never once felt the need to dig up information on whether or not the band argues during recording sessions.

I just want to listen to the music, because thatís the thing that they do that I love. I find the whole obsession some peeps have with needing to know every facet of a Ďcelebritiesí personal details a bit weird and creepy tbh. The fact that the whole of the internet seems to feed on this tittilation doesnít help matters either.

Itís not healthy.

I'm not going to watch the video because it's 20 minutes long and I can tell from watching the first 2 minutes he is playing a character, but...

I imagine he isn't talking about the person, he is talking about his games, thus he cannot be a horrible person - just a horrible game creator, thus thus title is wrong, thus clickbait.

Embarassing.

THIS RIGHT HERE - applies 1,000,000% in REAL LIFE.

I work closely with a lot of management, and I have always observed that you cannot climb up ANY management or leadership ladder (that often entails better pay and bonus) by playing the NICE card. You can't go around being nice to everyone or everyone is going to step on you.

To define a person based on things that he just heard or something is dumb.

Is he the worst? We don't know. Is he the best? We don't know. Does he makes mistakes?
Yes. Who has never sinned throw the first stone.

Thankfully Yamauchi was his sponsor, and he was a horrible person for him.

All he needed was the opportunity to make Donkey Kong, and then it took off from there because he is obviously a talent.

What the hell makes him a "horrible person"?

You need to watch better youtubers if they're going to get you with these baity videos.

He's an old man that's been in the business for a long time. He's set in his ways. If that makes him so "horrible" then lets see someone else do it better.

It's a character, he's a wrestler by trade.
