Guillermo del Toro Swears Off Video Games

“I have proven to be the albatross of video games,” he said. “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.”

Guillermo del Toro has officially announced that he will stay away from working on video games. The keyword here is “trying,” since he hasn’t had success in any of his gaming projects to date. Perhaps a string of bad luck is the answer, or maybe just coincidence, but either way, he’s the one that feels like a curse.

The latest mishap occurred with Silent Hills, featuring Norman Reedus. Fans of the game series, were left disappointed when news broke the project was cancelled, since Hideo Kojima left Konami, although not surprised. Kojima had been talking about leaving for a few years.

The burning question now is whether or not del Toro will ever find a stable gaming project that will change his mind. As of now, he intends to stay at bay, but no one has said anything about del Toro backtracking from consulting.
