Namco Founder, Masaya Nakamura dead at 91



The gaming world lost one of the fathers of video gaming.  Masaya Nakamura passed away at the age of 91 on January 22. He founded the game company Namco which is known for arcade hits such as Pac-Man, Galaga and others. Pac-Man was featured in the 2015 nerd hit movie, Pixels and was created by professor Toru Iwantani.

Thank you for the memories and fun, clean games!  Rest in peace!
