"On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer." - Satoru Iwata (2005)
Here is to the president that always stood by his company, that saw greatness and creativity and pursued it, and that refused to fire employees by taking a 50% pay cut instead. He was an important member of a video game culture, and will be sorely missed.
