Guillermo del Toro on why he's swearing off making video games - VG247

I have proven to be the albatross of video games.

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.

It's really not a great streak of luck for him, so I don't blame him for wanting to step back.

If you want to read into this one, I think it's interesting that he references THQ as a company but then says he was working with Kojima, not Konami. One could make an educated guess who's side he's on in that mess.
