Miyamoto tries to justify 2D

Artist rendition of how Miyamoto actually sees the world.

So recently he said:

“I don’t think everything needs to be 3D, or that just because we’re seeing more 2D games now, that everything’s going to shift back to 2D. Instead, I think that what’s going on is that people are realizing the benefits of a 3D game, and at the same time, remembering what the benefits of 2D games were. When going 2D, you need the courage to not be so attached to visual appearance of the games and to really pursue the gameplay experience.”

Interestingly this also reads well if you replace 2D for SD (Standard Definition/Poor-man's TV)

“I don’t think everything needs to be HD, or that just because we’re seeing more SD games now, that everything’s going to shift back to SD. Instead, I think that what’s going on is that people are realizing the benefits of a HD game, and at the same time, remembering what the benefits of SD games were. When going SD, you need the courage to not be so attached to visual appearance of the games and to really pursue the gameplay experience.”

Alright Granddad *rolls eyes*

You can also replace 3D with games with elves and magic swords.
