  1. Does anyone else find it strange that Naka was absent from that SEGA episode of High Score on Netflix? I keep thinking about how they didn't let him be in the movie despite asking, the fact that he expected a call from Nintendo shortly after leaving SEGA, and wondering why he seems to be 'under the radar' as it were, compared to unveiling Sonic Adventure with all the bombast of a literal rock star in '98. Was he hard to work with? Anybody have any ideas?

      Naka in general has that sort of atmosphere to him, being pretty headstrong and staunch on how his work had to be done. If I recall, him and Naoto Oshima got into arguments a lot because of this.

      Hard to work with is the understatement of the day, He's definitely mellowed out a lot since then, especially since leaving Sega, but the most objective viewpoint on what happened at Sega during the 90s would be probably the opposite of whatever Naka said happened.

      And even then, he's still not entirely let go of that ego; back when the Mega Drive Mini was doing the rounds, he frequently complained that more of his games such as Super Thunder Blade weren't on it, then got drunk on the JP launch stream and complained about it again. In the end they just gave him the US unit with Sonic 1 and 2, I think in part to shut him up. 

      I'm really not keen on Naka in general. Hence I'm annoyed whenever people call him the 'creator of Sonic' instead of Ohshima and act like his word on the character itself should be the gospel. Just, nah.

      @Tracker_TD Me too. And then everyone acts like if he came back to Sonic Team, he'd automatically fix all of the things wrong like some kind of video game messiah, all the while forgetting that Sonic Team was already going down a bad path when he was still in charge of it.
