Shigeru Miyamoto
A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.
Miyamoto quotes
Necessity is the mother of invention. I love solving things like that. Because there wasn't enough memory, thinking of an economical way to make the movements look right was like solving a puzzle, and I had a lot of fun.
Miyamoto
So you know cats are interesting. They are kind of like girls. If they come and talk to you it's great. But if you try to talk to them it doesn't always go so well.




Miyamoto Shigeru quotes
I could make Halo. It's not that I couldn't design that game. It's just that I choose not to. One thing about my game design is that I never try to look for what people want and then try to make that game design. I always try to create new experiences that are fun to play.
Miyamoto Shigeru
When we’re doing an action game, we make the second level first. We begin making level 1 once everything else is completed.
Shigeru Miyamoto quotes
Controller is so intuitive, even your mum can play.
Shigeru Miyamoto
I don't know what Mario will look like next; maybe he will wear metallic clothing with a red hat.
Miyamoto Shigeru quotes
Games are a trigger for adults to again become primitive, primal, as a way of thinking and remembering. An adult is a child who has more ethics and morals, that's all. When I am a child, creating, I am not creating a game. I am in the game. The game is not for children, it is for me. It is for an adult who still has a character of a child.
Miyamoto
Video games are bad for you? That's what they said about Rock n' Roll.
Miyamoto Shigeru
What if everything that you see, is more than what you see? The person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it or accept that there is more to the world than you think. Perhaps it is really a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things.
Shigeru Miyamoto
I would say the games that we're working on now, like the new Zelda: Twilight Princess, have hardcore content. And if you look at the Revolution's controllers, there's a nunchaku-style controller expansion that's really well suited to first-person shooters.




Shigeru Miyamoto quotes
I don't like all the attention. I think it's better to let my work do the talking.
Shigeru Miyamoto
The PSP will not be able to display anything that you cannot do on a current system.
Miyamoto quotes
A good idea is something that does not solve just one single problem, but rather can solve multiple problems at once.
Miyamoto Shigeru
It isn't about "games", for me, personally, and it never really was. It was about creating something- anything- far bigger than yourself.
Miyamoto Shigeru quotes
Any new media or industry that grows rapidly is going to be criticized. That's just because the older, more established media have been around, and a lot of adults can be very conservative. They may not have an open mind to new things that weren't around when they were growing up, and are replacing the things they grew up with... over the years I've seen this standard image of a child playing a video game in which the child is alone in a darkened room, with his face very close to the TV, with the light of the TV reflecting off his face, holding the controller and just staring at the TV. I'd really like to be able to change that image of video games into something that's a little more positive.
Shigeru Miyamoto
Originally, I wanted a machine that would cost $100. My idea was to spend nothing on the console technology so all the money could be spent on improving the interface and software. If we hadn't used NAND flash memory [to store data such as games and photos] and other pricey parts, we might have succeeded.
