  1. Who would thought miyamoto doesn’t dream about work. And why wouldn’t he want to work for nintendo again. What I got was to experience a different gaming developer life.

  2. that’s cool. it’s kind of interesting to see how his personality hasn’t changed over the years. but his outlook on life and work hasn’t. good interview

      1. no i messed up i meant to say how his outlook on work and life has changed but his personality hadn’t. my bad

      2. Oh k, still for me its good that he is teaching new programmers and artists ti make great games.

  3. This was a cool interview because miyamotos opinion changed over the years. And i found it kind of odd that miyamoto dosent dream about work.

  4. All interviews should be like that. It’s clear, concise, it doesn’t bother much the interviewed and it’s less boring to watch/read/whatever.

  5. Yeah it seems like he’s pretty much done. He’s put in a lot of work. It’s cool if he wants to retire. He deserves to take a break and enjoy himself. I’m sure he wants to experience all that life has given him.
