Not every game exec plays video games. Square Enix honcho Yoichi Wada says he does. Or says he does.
The businessman claims to have spent 30 hours over the course of four days after Dragon Quest IX was released this past July. But for Wada, it's not simply a matter of "I like videos games". The exec wants to see how gaming and gameplay has changed, what makes a hit and to think about how titles are made.
That means besides willingly taking a pay cut, Yoichi Wada claims to actually play the games. So imperial. So hot.
