Nintendo games are like a trip to Disney in a box at home--they have a sort of magic to them. They have a soul and a personality and one thing I love is that "Miyamoto, and Nintendo as a whole, do not use focus groups. Instead, Miyamoto figures out if a game is fun for himself. He says that if he enjoys it, others will too." And the best part is, he's right. Nintendo games have made me shell out my allowance since the ripe old age of 3 or 4 when I had my Gameboy Color and soon after my continuing line of Nintendo products. In the case of my favorite series, Assassin's Creed, I was more willing to complete Hyrule Warriors and now smash before even finishing last years entry. As you all know, I adore AC, but as soon as I see a Nintendo game, I gravitate towards it. Even really weird and obscure games like Tomodachi Life.
I did go off on a tangent, but in short, thanks Shigeru, for always putting that smile of yours on the faces of gamers all across the world. You make Christmas an adventure every year and you elate your fans with your enthusiasm. The world needs more passionate, happy people like Miyamoto. (And also thanks to his fantastic translator, Bill Trinen, who puts up with all of Miyamoto's...ness XD)
