Quote: Satoru Iwata

Satoru Iwata, Nintendo President and CEO, passed yesterday.  During his talk at the 2006 Game Developers Conference Iwata summarized his approach with Nintendo succinctly:

“Above all, video games are meant to be just one thing: fun. Fun for everyone.”

In a his March 25 interview with Time, Iwata spoke further about the value of intergenerational inclusion in video games:

“And when the game itself is one that reaches across those different age groups, then you see situations where different people are talking about it together and learning from one another different things about the game.”
