Is Miyamoto losing his touch?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Is Miyamoto losing his touch?

Yes. Wii U, Sticker Star, Star Fox Zero.
Although, he has done some good ideas from time to time.

Wii U wasn't Miyamoto's full idea. Let's keep in mind that Miyamoto wanted HD graphics on the Wii but Iwata said no to that. He wanted to stay ahead or at least on par with other consoles in terms of power but they had to wait for Wii U...also Iwata's idea.

He played an early version of sticker stars and found it boring. Maybe his suggestions didn't fix it but unlike what many on the internet claim we can't know that it was all his fault. He might have been trying to polish a terrible turd.

I can't really comment on starfox zero as I've not played it but dinosaur planet probably would have still sucked if there was no star fox forced in.



Has anyone here ever even met Miyamoto before?

Maybe not retire, but he could move to a tutor role, not a management one any more. But perhaps, Wii U generation is too short to take any conclusions.

It feels like it's been a long time. A long time through hell.

I have not, and why do you contnuously ask this of us? Are you implying that our status of having/not having met the man determine how valid our perspectives are?



Some days I just blow up.

How much can we credit Miyamoto for Nintendo's latest failures? Because he's not the designer or director of most of the games from the later years. In Star Fox Zero, for example, he acted as a producer, and "Producer" is such a general position. He may very well have little to do with the game itself.

But who was it that decided to incorporate motion controls into a Star Fox game? Sales numbers show that it's officially killed the franchise.

Sales numbers show that decision killed the franchise?  Not the lack of multiplayer, or lack of content?  I'm curious to see how sales numbers showed that.

It's the worst selling game in the series since Star Fox Command.

I ask this because modern-day software development doesn't involve one-man teams. If Miyamoto were a comedian, author, or singer, I would be more willing to discuss whether he's lost his touch or not. He's not a one-man team, he works at Nintendo which is staffed by thousands of people.

I don't know what Miyamoto does, never did: maybe his involvement is the problem, maybe all he does is lend his name to Nintendo's products, maybe he's an "idea's man" and gives these ideas to others to screw up. I have no clue.

I'd much rather discuss the product itself which is available on store shelves than the work of someone who works behind closed doors.

Thats not an answer to his question and your statement makes no sense.

People with high responibility have to live with that. That's why they have a big role in a company, because they are the ones who have to ensure that the company will be in good shape.

 

 



I'd say so.
