Sakurai discusses the importance of the Famicom/NES
Respect the OGs
Masahiro Sakurai is back with yet another video in his YouTube series, but this one steps away from game development to dive into the ‘Grab Bag’ category.
According to Sakurai, without the Famicom (and NES), the video game industry might have grown in an entirely different direction. In this video, Sakurai talks about what it was like experiencing this legendary game console back in its heyday.
Sakurai cut his development teeth on the Famicom decades ago, and is work on that platform helped not only steer him to where he is today, but teach him the fundamentals of creating great games. Without the work he put in on the Famicom, who knows where he’d be now!
