Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai encourages you to try games you wouldn’t normally play

The folks at The Guardian had an opportunity to chat with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai about a wide range of topics related to Nintendo. During the interview, Sakurai encouraged fans to play all types of games, including those you don’t think you’d be interested in:

“I went out of my way to play games I didn’t like or find interesting. Those ended up being a lot more informative for me,” he said. “At home I have literally thousands of games, and I think of them as pearls of wisdom from my predecessors. Game development is very difficult. Nobody sets out to create a game that’s not fun. It’s all of the challenges and difficulties that happen throughout development that determine whether a game is a failure or a success. I think playing those thousands of games is the single best and easiest way to learn from my predecessors.”
