RIP, my friend. Thank you for your contribution to our lives.

Think he ever believed the work he was doing on "games" would make such an impact on so many people? Something to ponder in our own lives.

I'll be honest, I didn't know the man or his name, but who doesn't know the 2600?

Thanks for everything, and rest in peace.
