Nintendo's ignorance Edit

Having made a report on Gunpei Yokoi for Gifted Honors English class (unreferenced version viewable at http://www.cheatsguru.com/users/Yokoi for those of you who would like to read it; it contians some information not given on this article), I am well-aware of his accomplishments and innovative ideas. Learning of his successes and idolizing him shortly thereafter has brought me to expect Nintendo be much more proud of Yokoi than they seemingly are. I do not recall a single event in which Nintendo (or any other company, for that matter) had given credit to Yokoi for his astounding creations. Not even in Nintendo Power's 250th issue, where "250 Reasons to love Nintendo" was Yokoi mentioned, despite the fact that he had created the Game Boy, the Metroid series, and the fact that Miyamoto was assigned to Yokoi when being taught how to make video games and such (Miyamoto joined to be a concept artist or something along the lines of that, if I recall correctly). I have yet to spot an instance in which Gunpei Yokoi was listed even on a "Special Thanks" section of some video game's credits, leaving me intrigued as to why Nintendo is seemingly disregarding his entire existence. Why do you think Nintendo has been ignoring one of their most important people? Yashichi 04:10, January 10, 2010 (UTC)
