This guy is such and arrogant a-hole, but he actually backs up his smack talk with masterpieces such as Ninja Gaiden Black. Here are some memorable quotes:

Quote:
Let me tell you the real story with that. Back when the original DOA came out, Namco aired a radio commercial -- they insulted my series. As the father of DOA, I will never forget an insult to my family. I will get them back with nuclear missiles more than 100 times for that. I will never forget it.


Quote:
Tekken 4 is a piece of sh*t


Quote:

I met the DMC3 director at E3 last year. While I was out drinking at some bar, this Japanese guy comes wading through the crowd up to me, and he says, "You're Itagaki-san, aren't you?" Pretty outgoing for a Japanese guy, wouldn't you say? Anyway, so I say, "Yes, I am. Who the hell are you?" Yeah, there were two of them there then. I remember. I have a great memory [laughs]. So, he says, "I am the director of Devil May Cry 3; pleased to meet you!" and I said, "Pleased about what, dumbass!" I was drunk at the time, after all.


Quote:
1UP: Did you guys think "Well maybe the average gamer isn't as good as we thought, so let's make it easy on them?"(Ninja Gaiden)

Itagaki: That's right. In other words, there are some people who want to beat the game, even if it means being reduced to the level of a dog; people who are not afraid to shame themselves to accomplish their goals.


Quote:
I no longer can figure out what the hell they're trying to do with the numbering, and I don't know which one is which. I don't know what they're trying to do with all of these spin-offs, so this includes Nina: Death by Degrees as well. I don't think it even needs saying, but people should stay away from Tekken. Nothing left to say. I just don't want them to disappoint me any more. It's so annoying. Please don't annoy me any more.


Here's a link to his hilarious top 5 worst games list:

Feel free to post some more quotes from the best developer in the biz.

1. He makes good games, one reason he is great

2. He loves his cameos, and that is one reason I hate him.

Yea but the 'character balancing' wasn't nowhere near as major as some people made it out to be. The only thing I really don't agree with is the absolute butchering of Hayate. There's no reason to nerf him THAT bad.

I hope you're kidding(because I know I was)

But you gotta face the facts. It is true:
-DOA4 Patches
-DOA3.1/3.2
-Ninja Gaiden: Black

I like how some people take this guy seriously.

Try posting his name on a Tekken board.

Only shows how much fanboys are around. But if you would have posted something like it with some arguments, it wouldn't have made much of a difference I think.
