Shigeru Miyamoto: I’m Very Grateful With The Way Video Games Are Being Received


Video games began appearing in the 20th century and were first popularized during the 1970s. When video games were established, skeptics deemed them as just a fad and thought their popularity was going to be short-lived. Fortunately, for the millions of video game players out there, that’s not the case. Video games continue to gain widespread popular support, and the video game industry generates billions of dollars each year.

In an interview with, legendary Nintendo designer and producer Shigeru Miyamoto said he’s thankful that video games still exist and are still admired by many people as a primary form of entertainment.

“The fact that we’ve reached an age where video games are being received the way they are just makes me very grateful. There was a time when people always asked, when is the video game boom going to end? We’ve reached a stage where there’s no longer a question of when the boom’s going to end.

“It is simply: there are video games.”

        He actually rarely guesses right when it comes to this kind of stuff. But then again his job is predicting sales and he uses the existing data to come up with predictions, so when a company uses a disruptive strategy it is hard to predict.
