A (belated) Happy Birthday

On Nov. 16, legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto celebrated his 60th birthday.  Miyamoto is responsible for various classic game franchises, including Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Donkey Kong.

For my seventh birthday, I recall my favorite gift being a copy of Super Mario Bros. Deluxe for the Game Boy Color.  I spent countless hours with the game, giving it more attention than anything else.  This was long before I knew who Miyamoto was, let alone that I shared a birthday with the video game icon.  Here’s to us, and our forty-year difference.
