I’m not going to harp on about how much I loved all his films as a kid, (a lot) nor am I going to wax about mental illness (arm-chair psychologists are a dime a dozen today) but with profound sadness I am going to leave this here. He showed people that nerds aren’t just basement-dwellers with no social-skills; nerds can be funny, nerds can be extroverts, they can even be parents!

Above all else he valued gaming as a unifying experience, a way to connect to his family and get lost in something together. My heart goes out to Zelda & the rest of his family — It really is dangerous to go alone.
