  1. This month in the way game informer presents nintendo determines if I keep buy magazines. You been bad insulting nintendo. Not every Sony game is good or Microsoft. Always insult nintendo why

  2. Wow, thank you for asking really worthwhile questions. How else but with great questions are we ever going to know how these great men create their masterpieces?

  4. Love listening to Miyamoto and Aonuma. They seem like so chill. I like what Aonuma has done with the series thus far. Their excitement is infectious.

  5. Those two and Naughty Dog are really showing what can come around with all the passion, fun and desire to create something good. Not to say that other devs do not create good games but those two and Naughty Dog got it done better (in my view)

  6. 0:44 Ohhhh Eiji how many years were needed for you to listen what fans wanted vs. your strategy???? It has been a loooooong way (boats, trains, birds, and don't get me wrong these were funs and good games) but we finally got the definite Zelda with us, how is supposed to be!!!!!

  7. I've always had this mental thing where, in a fictional world, I invite various amazing people to dinner and a chill chat, possibly followed by some good weed – Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto is def on that list!
