The Score: Where would the games industry be now without Hiroshi Yamauchi?

"We ask for your thoughts on the passing of Hiroshi Yamauchi. Did he really single-handedly save the gaming industry? How much of an impact did he have overall. Could another company have taken the place of Nintendo, such as Sega?" -- Nintendo Enthusiast. (3DS, GameCube, Hiroshi Yamauchi, Industry, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Retro, Wii, Wii U)

Pong would probably sell 1 Billion unit and make 1 trillion in cash

Just google Yamauchi and RPGs. It's just one of his infamous quotes. This was during the N64 era where the console had a drought of role-playing games(Quest 64, anyone?)

Is this the guy at Nintendo who decided to dump Sony when they had a deal on a SNES CD player and helped create Sony the console company?

If Nintendo would have chose to let their characters grow up, and not repeat and reboot all their stories over and over, moved over to CD to keep FFVII, they would have remained unstoppable.

oh would you just accept the things you are fan of a child. Your childhood memories and things you love is what make the person today.

Why am i seeing so much disrespect for man who just passed away? for such little things to boot, have people really forgotten that gaming probably wouldn't exist as a mass medium if not for this man?

Yes the trolls are such babies, even though the man has passed away, so sad and pathetic, they need to get out of their mommies and daddies basement, and get a life!!! Sony and Microsoft would not be here if it weren't for nintendo, and the trolls can't stand it!
