Sad. I thought he was doing better. He was a coder and a gamer not just a suit leading a game company.

Here's a video of him playing a game he made, Balloon Fight on the NES.

That was really awesome to watch. Thank you for linking to it - I'd probably never have seen it otherwise.

After watching that it makes me sad to see Nintendo struggle as it has recently. That video and the E3 Nintendo Direct with Miyamoto and his Super Mario Bros. grid paper was so interesting.

Just goes to show that even geniuses can struggle to connect with gamers across multiple generations, but I hope their next console integration is a success...

His keynotes at GDC were always great too. I'm mobile and can't find any now but they may be on YouTube somewhere. RIP Iwata-San
