Nintendo announced today that former president Hiroshi Yamauchi passed away this morning. He was 85 years old.
R.I.P. Yamauchi. Nintendo wouldn't have been Nintendo without you.
RIP Yamauchi-san. Thanks for making my childhood great!
Before gaming executives became internet stars there was a man and his vision, didn't know anything about him when I was a kid but he knew what I would be playing every year No 1UPs left this time...R.I.P. and thank you!
RIP if it weren't for you we wouldn't have the nintendo that changed completely save and change the industry from the crash
He's right,Nintendo was the fuel for the gaming industry,who knows what could of happened if Nintendo hadn't stepped in at took over our gaming lives giving us the most enjoyable time of our childhoods ? Teenagers & kids of today will not understand that,not as much as people who lived this situation anyways. RIP Yamauchi you will be missed.
@Studio-YaMi I guessed as much. I just couldn't pin point the exact meaning of that comment. My wtf was directed at his grammar, not the content of his comment. It made me chuckle, lol.
RIP Yamauchi. You really revived the industry after 1983 video game crash and make the company what it is today. Respect
One of the fathers of gaming. RIP.
Rest in Peace sir, thank you for all the fun times I had with Nintendo.
R.I.P SIR, you gave me great joy with SNES games.
NES and SNES are Hall of Fame consoles in my book.
Rest in peace. 85 a good innings as we say in the UK.
R.I.P and all that but With Iwata in charge,it won't be long before Nintendo join him.
