I will legit give $100 to the person who can find the origin of Shigeru Miyamoto’s quote ‘A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.’
I’m not looking for articles who quote it. I’m looking for the ORIGINAL thing. – @JavedLSterritt
Speaking of delaying a game—a Nintendo game no less—the Miyamoto quote about delaying a game was flying all around Twitter. A few weeks prior I noticed this thread sparked by Javed Sterritt of Good Blood. A fascinating dive (with sources!) that shows how a quote morphed over the decades. It is vital for journalists to source quotes. I always report with sources, links, etc. Sometimes pop culture takes over and leads to fun stories like this though.
