In 1995 he released Resident Evil in which he acted as director. He has contributed to the popularization of the survival horror genre and has had a huge impact on the video game industry ever since.

Editor's Note:

Shinji Mikami is one of the most important developers and managers in the industry. While I would love to continue watching games under his direction, I also understand that he has left his mark on the medium, and if he wants to dedicate himself to enjoying the rest of his lives, this would be a perfect decision for him.
