Every self respected Nintendo fan… No, not good. On the 19th of September a big drama happened at Nintendo HQ. Wait, no! That’s not good either. -Sighs- Sorry, I am just not feeling all happy and good right now. I wasn’t planning on doing any content right now. Today is a day we remember somebody who left us yesterday. Hiroshi Yamuchi lost his final continue. He left us at the age of 85. For the people who think: “Why is there so much fuzz about this guy?” Let me enlighten you with some knowledge. This man is a revolution. He helped Nintendo save the gaming market with the big game crash in 1975. He helped Mario and Zelda get popular and house hold names. This great God in the game industry died of pneumonia. Which is an infection of the lungs for those who don’t know. He was in charge of the company from 1949 until 2002. Yesterday, he served his last day here on earth.
I changed my mind today. I decided to write an article to support the family and friends of Hiroshi. Also, to inform all Nintendo fans of this sad event. I admit that I didn’t sleep well past night. This man is a God in my eyes. He helped making various amazing games and he made the company I love big.
Image this. He made of a card trading company, a world leading video game developer. He made many revolutions, or at least took part in many of them. If we would talk about this man in depth, then we would be here for years. His Wikipedia entry is long enough to prove that.
I call upon all Nintendo fans to join in the mourning of Nintendo this weekend. His funeral is this Sunday according to an article I read on BBC.
I can assure you that writing this article is a difficult one. My mind is everywhere. I want to write something amazing to honor this guy but I can’t create good idea’s. I even got teary eyes while writing this.
I’ll just go with this then. This might be a short article, I just want to say to him, thanks. For all the work you have done. For everything. You showed the way how a small company can become big!
You deserve a spot among the biggest of biggest. You will be missed, that’s for sure. Your children and your wife, your family and friends. Your company and fans. We all will light a candle to remember you.
Thank you Hiroshi Yamauchi.
