There are a few folks in the video game industry I'd actually like to sit down with. I'd like to pick their brains about projects they created as well as stuff they want to make. I'd also like to ask them some random stuff. These are those people:
Hideo Kojima - Kojima created some of the best video games ever created, and they weren't all called Metal Gear. The main thing I'd pick Kojima's brain about the bleak chance at a sequel to Snatcher, or for that instance, a third Zone of the Enders game.
Shigeru Miyamoto - The man who gave us Donkey Kong, Jump Man / Mario, Link, Zelda, and many more legendary characters. I'd be more interested in how Miyamoto felt to almost be fired if he couldn't do something with those old Radar Scope games Nintendo had laying around(google Radar Scope...it's a part of video game history).
Yuji Naka - Simply put, I'd ask Yuji Naka about his thoughts on all the REALLY bad Sonic the Hedgehog games that have come out since the end of the Genesis.
John Romero - I just want to know why Daikatana was so incredibly over-budget, and why it looked and played like digital vomit after it's release.
Ed Boon, John Tobias, and Mark Turmell - as a trio, these guys gave us gems like NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat, and Smash TV. I wonder how they feel today about the house they built being sold off, with EA, Warner Bros., and other picking the scraps of Midway.
David Jaffe - I understand you are a genius of game design, and you made one of the greatest action games ever with God of War, but did you have to be such an arrogant prick about it?
Yu Suzuki - What a brother got to do to get a new Space Harrier?
I'm just saying...
*This post contained references to two games that may be unfamiliar to many of you. I plan of writing fleshed out pieces on Snatcher and Radar Scope soon.
