Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime remembers Iwata

0

Heartbreaking

"Mr. Iwata, I hope you're smiling right now."

The standout moment from last night's The Game Awards 2015 was a tribute to late Nintendo CEO and all-around remarkable human being Satoru Iwata, who passed away in July.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé took the stage to give a touching speech in remembrance of his "fearless" boss, a man who "clearly was unique in the fullest meaning of the word."

"On a personal level, he was my boss, and he was my mentor. And, he was my colleague. But most of all, he was my friend. And I'm a better person for it. And I think every gamer is better for having Mr. Iwata's vision and talent help inspire and shape the passion we all share."

It's still hard to believe he's gone.
