Miyamoto: Not everything needs to be 3D
The legendary game creator Shigeru Miyamoto, recently explained why games do not always need to be in 3D.
“I don’t think everything needs to be 3D, or that just because we’re seeing more 2D games now, that everything’s going to shift back to 2D. Instead, I think that what’s going on is that people are realizing the benefits of a 3D game, and at the same time, remembering what the benefits of 2D games were.
When going 2D, you need the courage to not be so attached to visual appearance of the games and to really pursue the gameplay experience.”
New Super Mario Bros. Wii seems to be a testament to that exact quote. A game that pushes fun, instead of polygons. Obviously, 2D wouldn’t work for every game, but it is great see a game like that go back to its roots and seeing that even after 20 years the core formula of a platforming Mario still works.
I agree completely, some games are best enjoyed in 2D
I don't think I'll like a 3D pokemon battle system
NSMB Wii will probably be more fun than SMG too
