While I didn't always agree with the decisions Nintendo has made over the recent past, Mr. Iwata was still a giant of the industry that deserves everyone's respects. It will be a different Nintendo without him.

At first I was just stunned...but the more it sinks in, the more I want to cry.

He was a great man, I hope he'll rest in peace and that Nintendo will recover from their loss soon enough.

It's unfortunate to hear that he has passed, especially that he wasn't able to make it to E3 due to poor health. I'm sure he's had a wonderful life and realized that he's given many people a wonderful gift.

He was quite possibly the greatest video game programmer that ever lived. Coded Earthbound from scratch and when Game Freak was struggling to fit Johto on the gameboy cartridge, he came in and fit both Johto and Kanto on it. I think he was a vastly better programmer than CEO but still, mad respect to the guy. He'll be sorely missed :<

I'm sorry to close this one but it's a duplicate of an earlier posted topic.
