Guillermo del Toro Thinks “The B*****ds with the Money” Are Ruining Creativity in Games

Film director Guillermo del Toro, victim of two cancelled games, has taken a swipe at AAA game developers for stifling creativity. Speaking at the DICE Summit alongside Hideo Kojima, his former partner on the sadly canned Silent Hills, del Toro spoke onstage to Geoff Keighley about his previous frustrations at trying to craft a video game and his reluctance to return to the medium, adding that Kojima is the exception, and he’d work with him again at the drop of a hat.

“The storytellers look ahead to see what they can discover, and the money people look back […] That’s the safe route,” del Toro told Keighley. Creativity in game production is “only limited by the b*****ds with the money,” he said.

Keighley ask del Toro about a previous statement he made, swearing off video game development for good, to which he nodded, but added “Except with this man,” referring to Kojima. “I’ll do whatever the f**k he wants.”

Kojima, sat next to him, agreed, saying through a translator, “I don’t know what it is. It is probably going to be hell. It is probably going to be really tough. It is probably going to be a game or a movie. I don’t care, but we will do it.”
