So, Miyamoto is at fault for why Sticker Star wasn't something better? Surely, it's not be that simple.

Games are definitely team efforts. That being said, Nintendo typically works in small teams, and Shigeru Miyamoto carries a lot of weight at that company. He is also apparently kind of bossy; there was an old Iwata Asks that talked about how Miyamoto would “upend the tea table” on some games out of nowhere.

Googling that, this came up from the Zelda wiki:

“Upending the Tea Table is a phrase used to describe when someone, usually Shigeru Miyamoto, steps in toward the end of a game’s development to suddenly and radically change its direction. This often involves starting from scratch, rendering a large amount of work worthless. The phrase originates from a scene in a famous Japanese manga called “Star of the Giants”, in which an angered father upends the tea table at which the family is eating, spilling dinner on the floor. Eiji Aonuma calls it the Miyamoto Test and sees it as a measure of how well the team is aligning to the essence of Zelda. Although it is destructive, Miyamoto always helps to clean it up and make improvements, and the team usually welcomes his wisdom.“

It is very likely what happened to Sticker Star was an “upending the tea table” Miyamoto Test that backfired miserably.

It’s also likely that this happens because Miyamoto wants out. There have been various rumblings over the years that Shigeru Miyamoto is looking to retire from game development and Nintendo absolutely refuses to let him go. Every time there are rumors of his retirement, there’s immediately a statement from Nintendo about how everything’s fine and he’ll keep making games forever.

I can’t specifically remember what it was now, but there have been other instances where his involvement in a game has had a negative impact. I don’t think he’s deliberately sabotaging these games, but it is possible he could be getting more careless as he is forced in to jobs he may be getting tired of.

So I found Paper Mario Sticker Star at walmart this morning for $20 and I figured, hey why not. I just got paid, so I can totally afford it and pick up Paper Jam Bros with my next pay check.

Just watched ProJared’s one minute review on it and now I can kinda understand how @cubicflan feels about it, but I wanna give this game a fair chance. I’ve only just started, so let’s see what it has to offer.
