Tomorrow, Miyamoto-san dies.

What would you do if Miyamoto died tomorrow?

Would you grieve? Would you pay your respects to his memory in some way? Would you be a little concerned about the future of Nintendo or would you remain optimistic? Would you think nothing of it?

How would you react?

    I probably would go "Oh that sucks" and move on. I'm not really a nintendo fanboy. He is a cool guy but...it isn't like i personally know him, or he like, saved the lives of orphan children or something universally important. He just makes games.

    Well, it would be sad, obviously, but it's not like he cranks out games on his own these days. He works with a big team of talented people and more often than not, he merely supervises things.

    Did someone forget to tell me it was dumb thread day today? Because if it is, I'll get in on the action and make a thread about which ginger haired videogame character is everyone's favourite.

    I would create the Miyamoto Retrospective Thread in G&T. We'd reminisce about some amazing games that he's had a hand in, his history at Nintendo, etc. It would probably get to about 80 pages or so, probably wouldn't necessitate the need for a second thread.

    So to answer the question I'd be saddened just as I'm saddened by the loss of any artist or visionary, but my life would go pretty much like normal.

    If this topic doesn't meet your high expectations, I apologize. Be aware though, I personally don't post in other people's threads to criticize the thread starter (some people might refer to it as threadshitting). In fact, I avoid topics that don't appeal to me.

    Everyone should feel free to criticize. But I would suggest making an effort at being polite.

    It's only good manners.

    The guy who made Game Boy died and the DS is around, the guy who made Space War died and shooters are still around.

    I don't know if you need a large group of people to agree on it being sad or anything. A better post would have been "Influential game designers" or something like that, not this tabloid "what if" stuff.

    Hey man, I didn't just take a shit on your bridge because it made me feel good (and it did feel pretty good), I did it in the interests of the public. I know it must stink under there but hey, when you're a troll, you just have to roll with (or in) that shit.

    The funny part is that he's been registered since late '06 and posting since early '07 and the measure of his progress is the shift from "hideously offensive" to "relatively unsettling."

    coming from the guy who made a racist post bout RE5 this rebuttal means very little. I also think it is impolite to masturbate on someones photograph.

    ...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.

    I'd shave my head in mourning, scream in agony in public, and turn to a life of crime. I'd just go around shooting everyone while shouting "Itsa me, a murderer."

    Just because an influential person dies, it doesn't mean the world ends. Sure, we'd all probably be sad, but no one is going to go shit fuck crazy because someone we only know through their creations has died.

    Oh... I'd join you. But instead of shooting people, I'd just shove people to the ground and jump on their heads.

    I doubt I would even be bothered if he died... My comment would most likely be "Oh... I think I read a thread yesterday on how he was going to die today."

    That's it. I'm revoking your thread creation permissions.

    Which means that you'll stop posting, since you do nothing but spout out a silly brainfart of a thread and then never participate in it.
