You might remember Yamuachi-sama who made the now infamous statement,

[People who play RPGs are] depressed gamers who like to sit alone in their dark rooms and play slow games.
He's also been quoted as calling RPG's "Silly and Boring" and prided himself on never having played a video game in his life.

In context, the statement was made after Nintendo lost the Square contract for Final Fantasy.
