Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto, who’s known for creating iconic video game franchises like Donkey Kong, Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda, has revealed that he feels he once made a bad game. In an interview with Kotaku, the video game designer was asked, “Do you feel like you’ve ever made a bad game?,” to which the he replied, “Yeah.” Tomorrow, June 18th, Kotaku will divulge Miyamoto’s answer. Until then, which game do you think Miyamoto isn’t proud of?

  1. Wii Music is just casual, most of the Wii stuff wern’t that brill but had their moments. I don’t think he would make a game if he felt it was awful, just people are douche bags and like to state the obvious because they just saw this. So what if he made a bad game, it’s them that make sure the future stuff stay good :)

  2. I’m gonna guess.. Star Fox Adventure… he’s the one that made them change it from dinosaur planet. And its the one game I have bought that I truly regretted.

XD i liked that because it was relatable to how metroid zero mission had the original metroid. that was cool, i still play metroid zero mission like every year. i love that game to death. XD

  3. You forgot Urban Champion because THAT was a bad game. Ice Climber was also considered another criticized game on the NES/Famicom (which could explain why nobody is interested in making a sequel).

  4. Guys Wii Music isn’t that bad of a game. Miyamoto really likes Music, and Nintendo did it in a great and fun way. I still enjoy playing Wii Music with my husband, naked in the backyard (Thats also our Wii Music band name).

      • Yeah, they focused way too much on motion controls, and it just didn’t have the attention to detail that the other zelda games had– The Sky was barren and had only like 3 things to do, and you kept on returning to the same areas all the time but with some new boring twist. Personally, I would’ve preferred an open world. What they tried to do with the sky was like a shitty attempted copy of the Wind Waker.

      • Uh… no. If you want a bad Zelda game, look no farther than the DS ones… seriously, what the hell was Nintendo thinking with those terrible games? Those are easily the worst ones.

        Also, I don’t understand this hate for Skyward Sword. I still haven’t beaten it, myself, but it’s an amazing game with extremely responsive motion controls. Not a lot of Wii games have very good motion controls, I will admit, but Skyward Sword had absolutely AMAZING motion controls.

  5. Ironically, the very game that Miyamoto is playing in that picture is (in my opinion) probably his worst game. And that’s Wii Music. When I bought that, I was like (o _ 0)
    It was NEVER worth full price. It should have automatically been one of the more value-priced Wii games.

  6. Wasn’t aware Miyamoto created Killer Instinct but I thought that was a Rare IP? Plus there are alot of games I wasn’t aware that he created, like Pokemon Red and Blue? I’ve yet to play every single game he’s made but haven’t played a bad game from him from what I’ve played. Watch, it could be something obvious or something unexpected.

      • Yeah, Satoshi Tajiri did, which I knew. I did began to ponder because I can see alot of games where I haven’t seen Shiggy’s name on the credits. Damn Wikipedia lol

  7. I know this won’t be it, but I would feel so satisfied if he said Sticker Star. That game was a mistake.
    ((I really hope they continue making Paper Mario games though, so long as they don’t work off of the changes set up by Sticker Star.))

  8. Donkey Kong 3 was probably his biggest flop sales wise. but his worst game if he worked on it might have been DK Jr. math, although im not sure if he worked on it. or gyromite or something, the mans worked on a lot sometimes I can’t keep track XD

  9. Um… I have absolutely no idea why people keep saying Skyward Sword… that game was amazing. It had the best motion controls of any game on the Wii, not to mention, the graphics were beautiful. A true testament to show that a system doesn’t have to be a powerhouse to have beautiful graphics. Shame no one seems to realize that.

    I sincerely have no idea where this sudden hatred for Skyward Sword came from, because it’s obviously not a bad game. When it first came out, everyone loved it. Then suddenly, random, stupid hatred for it started pouring out. Want an example of a shitty Zelda game? Play Spirit Tracks or Phantom Hourglass. Try not to gouge your eyes out from the absolute atrocity of those two games, though. Hard to believe that the sequel to such an amazing game, Wind Waker, had to be such trash.

  11. What do I think he is going to say? Wii Music. What do I want him to say? Paper Mario Sticker Star. Look I’m sorry but that game was a mistake. I would love for them to acknowledge their mistake.
