Miyamoto working on “Educational” games…makes gamers sad

Ever wish that Miyamoto would just get back to work designing games we actually want to play?  We love the guy. He is the father of modern gaming…but he just seems to have stopped caring about making real gameplay. The man who showed us that 3D platforming could not only be done, but it could be amazing, is now working on *shutters* educational games.

While in the U.K. to attend the BAFTA awards, the designer stated that he is mainly working on making the DS an educational tool for Japan. *sigh* We love you Miyamoto but please stop doing this to us. Come back to the gamer side of things… Please?

Shigeru ended up taking home a Fellowship award from the BAFTAs. He really does deserve it. Regardless of what he is doing now, many of us would not be playing the spectacular games we have today without him. The industry really was built on his shoulders. Even if they are now the shoulders of a “embarrassing old hero” who is starting to go crazy.
