  1. Why do people have to die like this? Iwata had so much time left and it was all cut short because of cancer. I HATE THIS. I'm sad and angry at the same time. It was only a few weeks ago when I was watching his puppet character at E3, and now he's gone. I can't begin to describe the negative feelings I have right now. I'm angry at cancer for taking Iwata's life. I'm angry at myself for disliking the Nintendo E3 presentation, causing this man to issue an APOLOGY STATEMENT while in the midst of fighting a deadly disease that I didn't even know he had. But most of all, I'm sad that this man had to die at ONLY 55 years old. He had another 30 years ahead of him at the least. I can't help but feel that the consumers (including myself) caused his death. WE pressured Nintendo, thus pressuring him. WE stressed him. WE criticized Nintendo. When we criticized Nintendo, we criticized him. I can't get rid of the painful feeling in my gut that WE killed Satoru Iwata.

  2. Luigi was Iwata's favorite, so I want to see nothing but Luigi players on For Glory with tags that honor Iwata. Let's do this for him, gamers.

  3. I will say that His shoes are going to pretty big to fill.
    and respect this kind hearted man for pretty much everything I grow up with.

  4. No! No! NO!!! You are making money off of this news! You are EXPLOITS!!! How does it feel that YOU are make $'Money'$ off of a DEAD MAN?!?!?!?!?! REMOVE YOUR MONITIZATION NOW!!!!

  5. Iwata-san will be sorely missed by those who did, and didn't, know him. And he left behind a vast legacy for Nintendo, during his time. I trust God that whoever will be in charge of Nintendo, will be someone who will keep that legacy long and strong.
    And let's not forget, that there's already a vast team at Nintendo, supporting that vast legacy already. Goodbye Iwata-san, thank you. :,)
