Batman is an odd concept when you think about it. Fans of the older comics love pointing out to me that they were much more kid friendly than most modern interpretations, but when you unpack the concept, it’s always been pretty dark. At it’s core, Batman is a concept about an 11 year old boy who sees his parents get gunned down, snaps and decides to dress up as a bat to fight crime. That’s pretty dark.

For the past day, the video game community has been mourning the death of Satoru Iwata, the legendary Nintendo President who impacted the lives of millions of gamers through his work. From his many accomplishments to reverence from peers to the many stories from the people who met Iwata highlighting the man’s professionalism, humbleness, and just how damn nice he was, it’s hard to understate his legacy.

But most importantly, he was a man who embodied Nintendo’s core message: games are meant to be fun. This belief allowed him to connect to fans in ways other CEO’s could only dream of. Fans around the world showed their love for Iwata with some amazing fan art, and I’ve collected some of my favorites that I hope many people will enjoy. It’s already been said many times, but from my heart, thank you Iwata, and rest in peace. Continue reading »
