Gunpei Yokoi left a huge impact on Nintendo. His efforts led to the creation of the Game Boy, Game & Watch, and plenty of other products. He left Nintendo soon after the Virtual Boy launched.

Yokoi was tragically killed in a car-related accident in 1997. He was born on September 10, 1941 – it would have been his 71st birthday today.

Let’s all take a moment to remember Yokoi and his many contributions to Nintendo.

I do have a lot to thank that man for. Playing the Game Boy was when I realised video games were going to be a big thing for me. Before that I couldn't imagine playing a game for 100s of hours. Then I went through 100s of AA batteries in a matter of months.

Happy Birthday, you absolute legend.

Love the man, but nope. Nintendo had, and still has a ton of strong employees.

(who no one ever heard of because Miyamoto made everything good)
