Miyamoto: Violent games may damage “the potential of what games can do”
Shigeru Miyamoto has said violent games, like Grand Theft Auto and Modern Warfare, may hurt “the potential of what games can do”.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with CVG, the Nintendo exec said developers had “to be very careful about the very great potential video games have as a way for people to express themselves.”
“Sometimes, games designers tend to focus their attention on a limited particular area of their expression,” said Miyamoto. “That is simply narrowing down the potential of what video games can do.
“I really hope each individual creator has a wider view so they can appreciate and try to expand the potential of video games.”
