Yes, Kazunori Yamauchi brought us Gran Turismo, and in the process did something that changed the world! Certainly worthy of his place in history right along with someone like Magellan.
On a slightly related note, I really dislike the way "documentaries" are made nowadays. There is so much drama, so much flare, and so much bull. The camera work, the imagery, and that bull :), it's now more important than facts and information. I really prefer the old documentaries I used to see as a kid or young teen, considered boring by today's standards, but they were really more informative and not nearly as biased, and way less bull :).
He should focus more on the game, GT has sucked for years, get a new sounder designer please, your audio is shit!
