Fumito Ueda, creator of acclaimed video games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, has revealed he has an interest in making first-person games, pointing to Valve's Half-Life 2 as a title he admires.
Ueda had particular praise for the way in which Valve doesn't take the player out of the action to be shown a cutscene.
"There was variation in terms locations," said Ueda through a translator at TGS, "and also the way of storytelling in the game. Usually, you have to incorporate storytelling with constraints, but the way they [Valve] implemented constraints was something different that I enjoyed, compared to other games."
Ueda added: "I have an interest in making first-person games."
