You have to feel sorry for Guillermo del Toro, every game he has worked on has crashed and burned and with Silent Hills no longer in production he has sworn off starting any more video games.
“I have proven to be the albatross of video games,” Dek Toro told Shacknews. “I joined THQ, and THQ goes broke. I join Kojima, and Kojima leaves Konami. I have decided, in order not to destroy anyone else’s life, I have decided I will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I’ll join someone and his house will explode, or something.”
He also explained how far InSANE had progressed at THQ before it closed with outlines and the screenplay written, and also said that he had learned a lot from his time working with Kojima.
Del Toro went on to say that he is not adverse to video games being based on his properties and ideas, but will never be directly involved in their production.
