The prestigious magazine TIme publishes the list of 100 influential people every year, and this year the head of the studio “FromSoftware” is among the people on the list. “Neil Druckmann” from “Naughty Dog” studio commented about him in this magazine:
Miyazaki’s games make one feel smart and have an acceptable sense of self. This is thanks to his and his team’s uncompromising approach. Miyazaki doesn’t overexplain the mechanics and lore, trusting the player to discover them on their own. His games show how interactive media can create emotions that passive media like television can never replicate.
