Nintendo's third president, Hiroshi Yamauchi, was famously disinterested in video games, preferring to play more traditional Japanese board games. Despite this, he's also known for modernising Nintendo and transforming the video game market.

Although we've heard plenty about Yamauchi's life previously, in celebration of Nintendo's 129th birthday, YouTuber Larry Bundy Jr has made a Fact Hunt video about the former company president - highlighting some of his "completely insane" policies. The clip runs for roughly 12 minutes and covers Yamauchi's dislike of JRPGs, his public dispute with Square Enix (back then known as Square), his demands to be the only Yamauchi at Nintendo and even his supposed love of Tetris.

Take a look at the full video above and tell us in the comments what your memories are of this Nintendo president.
