Father of Mario and Zelda reaches another milestone.

Exactly 60 years to the day in the Japanese town of Sonobe, one of video gaming's greatest visionaries was born: Shigeru Miyamoto.

Since joining Nintendo at the late '70s, Miyamoto has arguably revolutionised the medium of interactive entertainment more than any other individual, producing a string of hits which stretches over an incredible four decades. In all that time, Miyamoto has never lost his sense of playfulness, as his recent visit to Spain proves.

Your contributions to this industry are some of the greatest, and you yourself are nigh irreplaceable. Let's hope that you aren't done yet - Here's to ten more years in the industry, maybe?

Anyway, without further ado:

Happy Birthday, Shigeru Miyamoto-Sama.

In all sincerity, thank you for sharing your talents with us. My childhood would have been significantly less awesome without The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Brothers. Congrats, Shigeru.

Hard to imagine the world without Mario and Zelda.

Isn't there some sort of Nobel Prize this guy could win?

I'd say you were ninja'd but it's Shiggy and he wouldn't want us arguing on his birthday.

There is no argument against it, even the most diehard of Sonymites and Xbots can't deny his greatness.

(Darn, it looked so pretty when I copied and pasted the Japanese characters for Happy Birthday from Google Translate.)
