When most people are asked to identify the one person most responsible for Nintendo's legacy, almost everyone names Shigeru Miyamoto. Which makes total sense; Miyamoto is, after all and without question, one of the most important important and influential game designers of all time.

Though it could be argued that Hiroshi Yamauchi is the one who deserves the most credit. He's the longtime president of company, between 1949-2002, who among other things hired a cartoonist, a friend of a friend's son, who had zero experience in video games, and put him in charge of making games. Said artist being Miyamoto.

Yamauchi's made many such moves that would have similarly incredible ramifications on the world of video games. And that man has just passed away, at the age of 85.

"Super Mario Bros." helped sell the NES, "Super Mario 64" was the reason to get a N64, the original Game Boy was initially believed just to be a "Tetris" playing device, and the only game you absolutely needed for the Wii, again at the very beginning, was "Wii Sports."

So to say that original pack-in for Nintendo's previous console was kind of special is an understatement. That and how it sold the very concept of motion-sensing games to the masses. Again, "Wii Sports" is more than a little significant.

And it's coming back for the Wii U, though in a slightly manner than before, along with new bells and whistles.

One of the interested parties was Sega, which offered 20 billion yen. Well, the deal is done; Sega will soon be the Atlus's new owner officially. And the final sale price? 14 billion yen. According to various sources, the transaction will be finalized in November.
