Happy Birthday to the man who got me into gaming.

On a side note he is not the creator of Metroid. I think Gunpei Yokoi is.

Oh, apparently MGS2: Twin Snakes for the GCN was developed by Silicon Knights under the guidance of Shigeru Miyamoto and Hideo Kojima... I never knew that! I couldn't think of anything more pressurising then "being under the guidance" of these two people! :laugh:

Yeah was going to say that Miyamoto didn't create MGS, but yes he did have an input in the GC version. As you say, that's some guidance for the workers and a hell of a lot of 'know how' to tap in to.
