RIP Hiroshi Yamauchi

Hiroshi Yamauchi, the man who ran Nintendo for more than 50 years, overseeing the creation of Super Mario, Donkey Kong and Zelda, has died aged 85.
I don't really do obituaries, but Hiroshi Yamauchi dies today, age 85. Hiroshi was president of Nintendo from 1949-2002, overseeing the launch of the Famicom (NES), Gameboy and SNES,  not to mention Mario Bros. Without Hiroshi, I would have undoubtedly read more books in my youth, but my hand-eye co-ordination would be severely lacking. 任天堂
