This should come as no surprise, but Shigeru Miyamoto doesn’t share the same opinion as a lot of game developers. While many people continue to try to push the borders of realism in gaming graphics, Miyamoto isn’t convinced that’s the way to go–at least not for him.
In an interview with Zoomin games, Miyamoto said, “I’m not saying that I am particularly bad at making the very photo-realistic video games. But when it comes to the realistic games, you have to create something familiar. I personally want to make something really different.”
Stick to what you know, Miyamoto. It has worked pretty so far.
