So I just found out that Hiroshi Yamauchi died this morning from pneumonia. For those not sure who Mr. Yamauchi is, he is the Ex-Nintendo president (joined the company in 1949 and stepped down on May 31, 2002).
Mr. Yamauchi introduced the Nintendo Entertainment System to America in
1985, and followed up by launching the greatest video game franchises in
history, including Super Mario, Zelda, and Donkey Kong.
Though I never knew him I must say I (along with many others) owe this man a good chunk of our childhood.
I owe this man many thanks, his system introduced me to gaming and gave me many great adventures. So good bye Mr. Yamauchi and thank you so much sir.
