Happy Birthday to Shigeru Miyamoto

Destructoid: "Now, when I saw the news that Shigeru celebrated his birthday today (or yesterday technically in Japan time), it reminded me of a speech I had written about him for my speech class in 2003, my senior year of high school. I went and dug it up and figured I would share it all with you to my embarrassment. Before you read the speech, understand that I had to write this in the tone that my audience had no idea what a videogame was and that this speech was supposed to be written in the style that I was introducing him for an audience. Check it out after the jump.

How many of you enjoy playing a videogame on the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube? Especially the games that allow you to explore every inch of your surrounding. Where you may find a secret that unlocks a new area or gives you a powerful item to aid you in your quest to save the princess or take over the world. Well there is one man who made this all possible -- Shigeru Miyamoto. Without Shigeru Miyamoto, games wouldn't be even close to what they are today. We probably would be playing Pong 2004 -- NOW IN 3D right now".

I think he's a great man... The things he's done for the Industry are literally unmatched. He's 55 now, and I still swear that he looks amazing for his age... Thank you for Mario ('cause without him, we wouldn't have Super Mario Galaxy), Shigsy, and I certainly hope you have many more birthdays! *squees* Happy Birthday, dude!

to wish Miyamoto-san a Happy Birthday. And I hope he still keeps puting out the games that continue to inspire the video games industry. It will truly be a sad day when Miyamoto retires.
