Konami biggie, Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear Solid series, thinks Mario is ‘the big bang’ of the gaming industry and that it is “one of mankind’s greatest inventions,” while talking to Nintendo Power, gaming mag.
“Shigeru Miyamoto not only altered the future of gaming,” he said. “But actually change the concept of ‘value’ for all forms of entertainment. And, in the process, changed my future, leading me to become the game designer I am today.”
“I feel the game truly deserves to be hailed as one of mankind’s greatest inventions. The game’s design, sense of fun, interactivity, and cerebral philosophy have made it the forefather of every game that has come since and of every game yet to come.”
“Super Mario Bros. is the equivalent to the big bang of our gaming universe,” he continued. “If it were not for this blindingly spectacular creation, digital entertainment as we know it today would not exist.”
Looks like someone is getting emotional. On a side not, three chair for Mario! Woohoo!
