Masahiro Sakurai, Smash Bros-seriens skaper har benyttet spalten sin i det nyeste nummeret av Famitsu til å si at han kjenner seg igjen i kritikken som George Lucas nylig snakket om i et intervju med Vanity Fair.
"You go to make a movie and all you do is get criticized. And it's not much fun. You can't experiment."
Sakurai føler at han befinner seg i samme situasjon. Blant klagene han har mottatt gjelder figuren Cloud i Super Smash Bros for Wii U, for fansen mener at han burde bruke Nintendos egne figurer og blåse i andre. Han sier at det ser ut til at den misfornøyde fansen har glemt alle de nye Nintendo-figurene i spillet.
"I truly understand his feelings. You could say my body is filled with these feelings. Making something, and completing it is a huge undertaking, and there are a lot of places where fans can't see. It's like building a house, but people focus on a single painting that's hung up on a wall in one room, and fixate on it, and keep listing off their complaints of that painting.
For me, a familiar example would be...in Smash, Cloud recently became a playable character. And there were people that strongly criticized that, saying "Stop adding non-Nintendo characters!" This is completely ignoring the fact that I've added many, many Nintendo characters to Smash.
It's particularly easy to voice criticisms, and opinions are very strong. When people yell loudly, it also invites mob mentality and conformity. It's easy for negative opinions to be amplified, while positive opinions are quieted. People don't understand the circumstances and state of affairs behind development, and it's not allowed for creators to make excuses. There are even people who feel emotionally battered and quit working."
