The Incredible Legacy of Gunpei Yokoi

IGN - Fifteen years after his death, we examine the lasting impact of Nintendo's famous designer. (Culture, Gunpei Yokoi, Nintendo, Retro)

Gunpei Yokoi did more for Nintendo than Sakamoto and Miyamoto combined, and yet he left the company shamefully when the Virtual Boy failed. Ironically, Miyamoto is NOW taking credit for the Virtual Boy idea in order to push the 3DS.

I wish he was still around to keep Nintendo on the right track.
