    Sadly a lot of gamers these days won't know who he is, but he gave rise to a legend in the gaming sector!

    Indeed! If it wasn't for Hiroshi Yamauchi the console market wouldn't be what it is today... come to think of it I would be who I am if it wasn't for Hiroshi Yamauchi - a Ninty fanboy. RIP Mr Yamauchi, so long and thanks for all the games.
