Warren Spector is from Disney International Studios, and he had a brief interview with Nintendo Life where he discussed his love for Nintendo. He likes the fact they they separate themselves from competitors from graphic, creative, and design standpoints. He also believes strongly in Nintendo’s future in the industry.
Here’s part of Spector’s interview with Nintendo Life:
NL: Speaking of games for everyone, Nintendo comes to mind as a company that doesn’t make games for kids necessarily, but for everyone. What do you think about Nintendo today, in 2015?
Spector: I’m kind of a Nintendo geek. I don’t want to get myself in trouble….you know, I’m looking around the show floor here. And let’s say there are 2500 games being shown. 2400 of them all look exactly alike. You can’t even tell which one you’re looking at, you know? And it drives me crazy.
And then you go to IndieCade, and you go to Nintendo, and all of a sudden it’s like, “Oooh, games can be different. Cool!” So I think from a creative standpoint, from a design standpoint, from an IP standpoint, from a graphics standpoint, I think Nintendo rocks.
The thing is, I mean, from a hardware standpoint it’s hard to say what Nintendo’s future looks like, let’s be honest about that. But the fact that they’re finally gonna put their IP on mobile…they’re fine. There are a billion smartphones on the planet. They’re gonna do just fine when Mario hits that.
I definitely agree with Spector when it comes to Nintendo’s designs and creativity. When you look a Nintendo game, you can say immediately that’s what it is because of its unique style. That cannot be said for all companies who develop and publish games. Do you agree with Spector’s point of view? Tell us what you think in the comment section!
