Happy Birthday, Shigeru Miyamoto


I’m 24 years old, and I feel old as s–t. Seriously. So I wonder how Shigeru Miyamoto feels as he turns 59 today.

We mark this occasion because Miyamoto is one of the most influential people in gaming, being the creator of Mario an Zelda. There can be no overstating just how big of an impact he has had on this medium we love so much, even though he doesn’t make games for the PC.

This guy, as far as I’m concerned, stands as one of the godfathers of gaming, and we should not forget that even as we hate Nintendo to death these days.

So if you have a drink today, be sure to make a toast to ole Shiggy, because we would be nowhere without him.
