Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Yu Suzuki Steps Down at Sega

20080610yusuzukiThe legendary game creator has been pretty much out of the limelight for a while but Sega Sammy has announced that Suzuki San will be stepping down from his role as R&D Creative Officer for the company. He will however remain as an R&D Manager for the AM Plus Division.

AM Plus develops arcade games which could be a nice fit for the arcade 80s genius.

In the past Yu Suzuki created such arcade classics as Hang-On, Out Run, Space Harrier and After Burner. Then he went on to create Virtua Fighter and most recently Shenmue.

We are still hoping, fingers crossed for a Shenmue III but it cannot be denied that the day Yu Suzuki leaves the gaming world will be a sad day.
