RIP Yamauchi. Thank you for saving the gaming industry back in the 80's. If it weren't for you, we may not be playing Mario, Zelda, etc. as we speak.

Bless your soul.

OOHHHH, oh my god. I thought people were talking about the creator of Metroid when I kept seeing this name around. Oh no. :( RIP Mr. Yamauchi.

I don't know Mr. Hiroshi Yamauchi personally. I have no doubts he was a great person with a mind to match. One i like to meet. Anyway, my sincere condolences.
