Shigeu Miyamoto, the creator of Mario and The Legend of Zelda speaking with Kotaku stated he is interested in making a first person shooter. The problem is that he does not have the time.
"I actually do kind of want to make a first-person shooter," said Miyamoto at E3 last week. "But I don't have time."
What interests him the most is not the violent aspect of the genre, but the first person experience. That is not surprising because he has never made a violent video game that has realistic blood and guts that is seen in today's modern shooters.
"Rather than necessarily the question of 'What kind of weapon do I have?' in a first person shooter or 'What kind of effect does that have on an enemy?', I think that the structure of a first-person shooter is something that's very interesting," he said. "Having that 3D space that in theory you are in and being able to look around and explore that—particularly being able to do that in conjunction with another person—is very interesting."
