Called the "Father of Modern Video Gaming" and named Time Magazine's 100 Finalist for 2008's World's Most Influential People, Shigeru Miyamoto's accolades are endless.
He created Mario, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda and designed Nintendo's Wii. His game, Super Mario Galaxy supposedly "redefines VG physics once again with its springy re-imagining of that old chestnut, gravity."
When asked about some of the less-than-favorable reviews that Wii Music has received, here's what Mr. Miyamoto had to say:
"...My hope is of course that a gradually increasing number of people will get access to Wii Music and understand its fun nature. I really don’t think that it will have the immediate and universal appeal around the world at all [laughs]."
He goes on to further say, "To tell the truth, I have this big ambition for Wii Music, that it can eventually be something very influential so that it might be able to influence what music means in the world."
Do you think Wii Music is a title that has the potential to become something phenomenally influential to steer music itself?
