It might seem like being a video game designer is a dream job, but even the best face problems — just ask Masahiro Sakurai. In his latest Famitsu column, the game director noted just how hard it can be to enjoy games and avoid Smash Bros. speculation. 

His biggest challenge is avoiding fan speculation on new Super Smash Bros. fighters. To do this, Sakurai says that he has to “be extremely careful” on what he writes about playing on Twitter and other social media. 

We often forget that video game designers like Sakurai also like to play games with friends, so maybe the moral here is to cut them some slack every now and again.
