Miyamoto talks up Angry Birds

Angry Birds is everywhere. It’s in your iPhones, PCs, socks, and now even your Nintendos.

Industry legend and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto recently recognized the game as one of his favorite in recent years. He told Hookshot: “Angry Birds is a very simple idea but it’s one of those games that I immediately appreciated when I first started playing, before wishing that I had been the one to come up with the idea first.”

“I mean, obviously I want to be the one creating the most convincing, surprising game ideas,” he said.

“It takes a little while to get used to the controls, I think, but once you’ve mastered them, you have a lot of precision. To make the interface and controls work that well and intuitively… well, I think a lot of work went into getting that right.”

Next thing you know we’ll catch POTUS playing Angry Birds Space in The Oval Office.
