Shigeru Miyamoto recently had the opportunity to sit down with the BBC to discuss all thing video games. During the interview Miyamoto was asked why Nintendo games have a stylized look and not photo realistic graphics.
Our company makes games of several different styles but we always try to be different, whether it’s video game or animations there are always trends. For example, in the video games industry, it seems that the majority of companies are heading in the same direction, taking advantage of identical technologies. They are simply trying to be better than their rivals. But my idea is pretty different. We try to be unique and different and try not to depend on the techniques of others. We try to be as uniquely creative as possible, and that’s got to have played a part in making our games look different.

yay!…..WAIT….thats not good is it?
I think they are going the right way. All “modern” games tend to look the same…
That’s a good point. If thy focus on graphics, that will make them weak and pathetic like Microsoft and Sony. :D
I agree with you on Sony they aren’t good at all but Microsoft help make Gears of War and other Xbox games… and the Xbox it’s self!
