The Itagaki Shrine

   0
Tomonobu Itagaki, a former video game designer from Tecmo most famous for the Dead or Alive and modern Ninja Gaiden Series. He is also known for drinking, gambling, building model trains and womanizing. (Rawr)

You might call him an arrogant. You might even call him an asshole. Perhaps he is both at the same time. That is why he is my favorite figure in the video gaming industry. Itagaki is simply a character, indifferent to how the public reacts to his opinions and statements.

The games Itagaki makes are more than what I could ever ask for. He knows the target audience (adolescent males) and shamelessly delivers on all fronts. You know when you are playing an Itagaki game when a world full of leather, violence, and jiggly physics consumes your mind.

Now for a slideshow justifying Itagaki's badassery.


Tomonobu Itagaki. He does not give a shit.



Itagaki may seem as tough as nails, but he has a big heart and is a very loving individual.



But do not fuck with Itagaki or heads will roll!



Itagaki without his shades. If you see this, it's already too late.



That Itagaki, so hot right now...



Sadly, people make fun of his battle scars, but it's still fuckin funny.



Fuck Tekken



Fuck Tecmo (another Teck)



Fuck Asian Mr. Clean
