VGChartz's Evan Norris: "For many executives in the video game industry, games are simply a means to an end. They’re big business. They’re dollar signs encased in shrink wrap. For Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, however, they were much more than that; they were a lifelong passion, a source of joy and inspiration.
Iwata, who passed away on Saturday at age 55 as a result of a bile duct growth, was more than just a corporate executive. He was, first and foremost, a game maker and game player."
