The untimely passing of the late Nintendo CEO, Satoru Iwata, left a gaping wound in the heart of the gaming world. Losing one of the biggest figureheads in the history of video games has not been easy by any stretch of the imagination, and looking forward to the future of Nintendo has never been more complicated. A long, toilsome road to recovery lies ahead for the folks at Nintendo, who now have to deal with choosing a successor to Iwata’s legacy–a laborious task to say the least.

Should Iwata’s blueprint be followed by his successor? Or is the company due for a change? Tell us what you think and share your favorite Iwata moments in the comments below.
