I'd probably also go with Kamiya or Miyamoto. On the western front I'd say Casey Hudson, who's been responsible for some of Bioware's strongest games.

On a more personal level also Suda51 because I really like his games despite most of them being a bit flawed.

Like I've heard arguments for Yu Suzuki but I hate Space Harrier cause it's the worst thing that Kamiya puts into his games. Also don't care about Shenmue or Virtua Fighter.

Carmac is like an innovator type dude who made a 3D engine but I don't know what else he did really.

According to a lawsuit from Zenimax he stole that shit along with Lucky Palmer. Or wasn't forthcoming about where it came from or some shit.

Or maybe he worked on it during Zenimax work hours and technically doesn't own the IP, it's complicated shit.

I think it’s the last one. I think he was building something there, then moved and rebuilt it. And people were like whoa, whoa, whoa. That might make some money.

It’s difficult talking about best game designers because the majority of designers/directors I can think of only made one game/franchise. Like I really like Bioshock. But is Ken Levine one of the greatest game designers? I don’t know.

For Miyamoto wins for sheer amount of quality titles attached to he’s name.

I also have a soft spot for Iwata because as legend goes Pokemon Gold and Silver hit struggles in development because when Pokemon Red and Blue were made no one wrote down how the battle system worked. So Iwata re-figured it all out + created a new way for the music to be stored on the Gameboy Cart and this enabled them to fit in the entire Kanto region into that game because of the space they saved on the music. So it sounds like he was pretty fundamental in creating the greatest Pokemon game ever

Big points from me

You might be right. Romero might be credited with director. In early games there was little need for such a title such was the size of the teams. Either way those two pretty much birthed the genre I come to love today 😍

Who's got the best track record for game director type roles in the industry?

I keep thinking it's Kamiya cause of work on stuff like RE2, DMC, Okami and Bayonetta. Though in reality I'm sure it's some Nintendo guy, but Imma say Kamiya anyway.
Viewtiful Joe and Wonderful 101 as well. He does have a really solid track record so I do fully agree.

Also, to make sure I wasn't mistaken I checked to see what he actually was credited for as a director I found that he was also the voice actor for Godot in Pheonix Wright which is amazing.

Scientists found that snails can transfer memories to each other. Assassin's Creed was right all along.

Now we are one step closer to artificial memory implantation. I am going to become a mathematical genius who knows kung fu just watch.

Totalbiscuit had surgery for pain management which I guess is part of maintaining some quality of life as he gets ready to make most of time.

But it sounds like it didn't go well? https://twitter.com/Totalbiscuit/status ... 9842753536

:(

This feels lurid, speculating on an internet celeb's health. But I guess as gaming gets older and its spoke-people do as well this thing will become more regular

Lang is like the Cork slang for penis 'langer' and I'm triggered by penis and Cork people so he should be ashamed.
