    A lot of the NES era devs were just out of college.

    Edit: For example, Miyamoto was hired by Nintendo out of college as a favor to a friend of the CEO.

    Nintendo nepotism, or nintenpotism, if you will.

    I'm sorry to break it to you Raijin, but uh- life, uh- finds a way ain't a videogame.

    Or maybe he did have 30 lives, and he kept dying and respawning?

    Maybe that's why the last 3 years felt so long...
