I studied filmmaking when I was a student. Cinema is a form of composite art, as it contains elements of fine art, literature, music, photography, sculpture… and I feel that’s the very reason it enchants so many people. Meanwhile, videogames have added interactivity and virtual reality.

I like making games [because] they appeal to all the human senses more than any other medium. I suspect that’s why Final Fantasy has so many fans around the world.
