On today, September 19, 2013, Hiroshi Yamauchi, former President of Nintendo, has passed away at the age of 85 due to pneumonia. R.I.P to a very significant man in Nintendo's history who helped form the company into what it is today.
The Mario series is the best! It has every genre in video games but RTS'! It also has a plumber who does different roles, a princess, and a lot of odd creatures who don't seem to poop!

Really late on this but I felt the need to comment anyway; the man basically made Nintendo what it is today and I wouldn't have had such a pleasant childhood without him. The stereotype goes that businessmen are greedy misers, but in reality some are visionaries and innovators who want to make the world a better place with their product. Thank you for everything and rest in peace Mr. Hiroshi Yamauchi.

Hey man, if you couldn't attract even a small group of friends with a Nintendo 64, that's your fault.

He was truly an influence, and I wish I had known literally anything about the man before he died. Unfortunately, I learned essentially everything about him through obituaries.
