Miyamoto thinks SMB1 is "a little embarrassing"

The legendary creator of Mario, Shigeru Miyamoto, doesn't look back at his first creations as lovingly and with as many fond memories as us gamers do.

Miyamoto says looking at pictures of Super Mario Bros. on a big screen TV is "a little embarrassing".

"When I see this so clearly, it's a little embarrassing.

"Back then, with tube televisions, it was a little blurrier and the images weren't quite so sharp. The places where we tried to fudge it a bit really stand out!"

Shigesato Itoi, a Japanese game designer, asked Miyamoto if the low-detail mountains in the background are what embarrass him.

"No, the lines represent the best we could achieve with the technology at the time, so that's not so embarrassing.

"I think that if I were making that game today, I would fix it, but in a way those rough places are a part of the game and even well-received."

If it ain't broke, Shigeru, don't fix it.

Wasn't this in their interview two weeks ago.... oh well. Anyway, it's a 25 (that's what the interview was for, 25th Anniversary!) year old game on an HDTV, it's bound to look bad. Hey, maybe this points toward a remake! For the 3DS! =D

fudge it



Did he really say fudge or something else? [Shifty]
I laugh at that picture every time I see him it in a news story on MMGN. :P
