In Memory of Toy & Game Inventor Gunpei Yokoi 1941 - 1997

October 4th will be the anniversary of the late Gunpei Yokoi tragic death.
I was blessed to have met this brilliant man during the unveiling of Virtual Boyat the Electronic Entertainment Expo ( E3 1995 ). Many of you have never seen Mr. Yokoi but still photos. Well, I recently recovered the footage of me meeting Mr. Yokoi and I thought i'd share the experience to all the Nintendo and gaming fans. To celebrate Mr. Yokoi's contributions to the gaming industry - I put together a short tribute to the man practically responsible for ressurrecting the gaming industry.

I've uploaded the Yokoi footage in two locations:

Vimeo ( for best video quality ): http://www.vimeo.com/1501372

YouTube ( my retro gaming channel ):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anyTBA46eyY

Please spread the word about Gunpei Yokoi - I feel he doesn't get
enough credit in the gaming industry. I dunno wether or not the industry
would've recovered from the 1984 Crash hadn't it been for Mr. Yokoi and
Miyamoto.
