And during that interview, he was asked what his favorite “things” are – books, movies, sports teams, and of course, video games.
For the record: his favorite movie is The Sound of Music, his favorite book is The Power of Full Engagement (which is a non-fiction management thing), his favorite sports team is the Utes.
His favorite video game, however, might come as a surprise:
My favorite game of all time is Myst—a deep, immersive, problem-solving game with very little dialogue. The graphics just amazed me. I finished the first three editions. My favorite game now is Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch. I’m very close to completing it and collecting all the Moons.
A non-Nintendo game tops the list, and what’s more, a non-Nintendo game that doesn’t have a whole lot in common with most of what Nintendo puts out: they’re not exactly known for making quiet, reflective titles with a more mature lean.
Anyway, they also shared his personal mantra, which is “Never regret what you have done. Learn from it, and get better because of it.”
How much does this actually matter? Probably very little. Actually I take that back it doesn’t really matter at all simply because he doesn’t even get to decide which games are made or not. But I guess it’s good to have a profile on him in case he decides to become a serial killer or something.
