Tom brought this forum post from Resetera.com to my attention. As a subscriber to Edge magazine I look forward to my next copy, where they have a feature on Toshihiro Nagoshi, a favourite developer of the Game Under Podcast. (which the link above includes some excerpts).
With a gameography as below it's no surprise as to why Tom and I enjoy Nagoshi's work so much:
Virtua Racing - Game Designer
Burning Rival - Director
Daytona USA series - Director
Scud Race - Director
Shenmue - Supervisor
SpikeOut - Director
Planet Harriers - Director
Super Monkey Ball series - Producer/Director
F-Zero GX/AX - Producer
Yakuza series - Producer/Director/Executive Director
Binary Domain - General Director
Hokuto Ga Gotoku - Executive Director
Here is a link to the excerpts, thanks again Tom for bringing it to my attention.
