->''Game designers: think of a single, sharp, [[VideoGame/{{Ikaruga}} spear-like mechanic]], [[VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus stick with it]], [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} set it in stone]], and then make [[VideoGame/AnotherWorld awesome levels]]. If there's a mood you want to go for, keep it in mind. In short: be cool, and you too can make a masterpiece. Even if your single mechanic is amazing, it doesn't mean anything without great levels. However, even a bare-bones mechanic (like, say, "running and jumping") can make for spectacular entertainment if the levels are great ([[SuperMarioBros Super Mario Bros. 3]]).''

->''In every Trooper training class, there is one kid with an impenetrable air of mystery. He doesn't participate in class discussions, and no one can tell what he's thinking. These kids mystify their teachers, and so the thoughtful educators kick them out of school and send them to study under the local Ancient [=ZenMaster=]. Invariably, it turns out that these kids are just nearsighted, but by the time anyone finds this out it is too late and they are well on their way to becoming Ninjas.''
