Shigeru Miyamoto is the creator of The Legend of Zelda series, as well as the characters of Mario and Donkey Kong. He is considered to be one of the fathers of video games and frequently cited as the greatest game designer of all time. Some also feel he is the man who shaped the Nintendo we know right now. His titles are characterized by sophisticated control-mechanics and interactive worlds in which the player is encouraged to uncover things for themselves.
