The Mario universe that is Nintendo’s biggest export is brought to Universal Studios Hollywood. Guests can drive Mario Kart at Super Nintendo World. The man who made this possible is Shigeru Miyamoto.
Shigeru Miyamoto is one of the most famous game designers of all time. He has worked at Nintendo since 1977. He created Super Mario, Zelda, and Donkey Kong and has continued to work his way up in the Nintendo world. Nintendo without Miyamoto? inconceivable.
But the 70-year-old Japanese is more relaxed than ever, he explained in an interview with NPR. After all, Nintendo was around before its time and will continue to be so well past its last day on the job.
But how did Miyamoto come up with all these ideas that made him and Nintendo so cool? Miyamoto said that much of his inspiration came from his childhood experiences in nature NPR. When asked if playing too many games is harmful for adults or children, Miyamoto’s answer is simple.
He says he doesn’t think it’s bad. It only gets bad when video games play a huge role in life. “If it’s really nice outside, you should go play outside. And that’s what I say to people who want to be game designers, you know? If it’s a nice day, go outside because I really think it’s an important factor,” Miyamoto said.
This is exactly where Miyamoto found ideas for classic games that continue to inspire millions of gamers in front of consoles today. For him, it is the experiences from the real world that combine with those in the virtual environment to create an entirely new experience. “Then the fun, the fun factor, explodes exponentially,” says Miyamoto.
So it never hurts anyone to leave the console and instead go to the nearest park or forest and engage in nature.
