Team ICO head Fumito Ueda is best known for moody, emotional titles like ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. That doesn't mean Ueda isn't itchy to bust a cap in your ass.

The game designer told G4 that he is interested in making a first-person shooters game. Just listen to him say it: "I have an interest in making first-person game." Ueda cites Valve's Half-Life series as FPS games he enjoy, remarking that, "Usually, you have to incorporate storytelling with constraints, but the way...[Valve] implemented constraints was something different that I enjoyed, compared to other games."

But what kind of first person game would Ueda make?

"[If]'re in the middle of play, in the middle of the game, then all of a sudden you're in a cut-scene [and] you're not supposed to operate at all - that's not the kind of game I want to do. If there is some other techniques that will not give them that kind of feeling, that's something I want to implement."

Hey man, do it, do it, do it.

Currently Ueda and his time are hard at work on the upcoming PS3 exclusive The Last Guardian.
