    Still the world's favourite plumber who saved the games industry!

    1985, the game's industry had hit rock bottom. Nintendo was alone because the atari empire hap collapsed. Miyamoto must've thought "let's call the plumbers to help.". Good move because it was a big risk between... Read Full Review
