I feel like I might have asked this before but it's always fun, so whatever. The internet widely claims that Sega of America, and particularly the likes of ex-president Bernie Stolar (and to a lesser extent his successor, Peter Moore) actively discouraged certain types of games being released for the Sega Saturn. Classic examples include "2D games are bad" and "RPGs will never sell"... before selling a bunch of 2D RPGs. Is there actually any tangible evidence to suggest this was once a Sega thing? It's just I was introduced to a wonderful quote yesterday, in which Sony discouraged Namco from releasing Pac-Man on the PlayStation because it "doesn't have an ending", and I'm wondering if this is broadly a PlayStation story confused as a Saturn one. Bernie Stolar (who probably made these decisions) being in an exec at Sony Computer Entertainment America before migrating to Sega. During 1995/1996, Sony also whined at Capcom for trying to release Buster Bros. Collection, and Working Designs for wanting to translate Arc the Lad. I seem to recall a Mega Man story too - I'll have to look it up.
