“On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer.”

― Satoru Iwata, Game Developers Conference 2005

I recently came back from a two day trip out of town and this was the first news I heard when I got back. I thought it was a sick joke at first, but then it slowly sank in that it wasn’t the case. We lost a brilliant, enthusiastic man this year, and he will certainly not be forgotten. A true inspiration to Nintendo fans and gamers all around, Satoru Iwata, thank you for your major contributions to the gaming community. May your games continue to live on in our hearts and imagination.

Every time I see this, I feel an emotion I never feel elsewhere
Sorrow.
It was a sad time when I had first got the news, almost yesterday, it seems, and everyone, no matter how hard they tried, was unable to lighten the mood of his death. It was a great shame, but even the best of us cannot hide from death.

Like many other folks, he held a hidden role in my childhood that I have only now discovered. May he rest well.

it was mostly a private affair.  The wake and memorial had many people show up, including people from both Microsoft and Sony, expressing their sorrow at his loss as many were inspired by him to create video games themselves.

I learned three days after it happened, I didn't believe it at first until both my brother, my uncle, and my best friend told me. Now whenever I watch Anial Crossing Credits on Saturdays I cry when his name comes on screen...
