    So I was reading this article about Mark Cerny being interviewed about his intelligence and he revealed some rather interesting information about Hirokazu Yasuhara.

    Considering how Hirokazu Yasuhara now works at Nintendo, I can't help but wonder what Miyamoto would think of that message if he finds out. >_> I also wonder why he viewed Miyamoto as a fart of all things.

    Ah, I guess the Sega vs. Nintendo era bullshit mentally didn't just took place in school playyards then.

    It's human nature. Competition is what keeps us striving to improve, even if the core is just, "Pfft, I can do better than that guy."

    Ever been in a gifted level class? Yeah, it's full of smart kids, but it can get quite vicious there. You can see an exaggerated version of it in a episode of Malcom in the Middle where the gifted class' instructor establishes a ranking system based on GPA rounded to a rather double level of decimal points.

    I guess I shouldn't be too surprised that Hirokazu was jealous of Miyamoto, but his statement "Shigeru Miyamoto is a fart" just utterly amuses me. It's just a very strange thing to hang above his desk. I wish there was a lot more information on the web about his personality as he seemed like a very interesting, but private guy. With his much better track record than Yuji Naka and Naoto Ohshima, I can't help but wonder what type of future the Sonic franchise would've had if he was given a lot more control of the series in its later years. Maybe we would have never had disasters like Sonic '06.
