Satoru Iwata Receives Lifetime Achievement Award at Golden Joystick Awards

The late Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata was honored with the Lifetime Achievement award during the 33rd Golden Joystick Awards held in London. Iwata had a very unfortunate medical emergency last July which claimed the 55-year-old’s life. He was the force behind the Wii and DS, allowing those platforms to really take off, so for Nintendo to honor such an important man, their CEO, with the Lifetime Achievement award is heartwarming to say the least.

On a related note, Splatoon banked two wins at the event, namely Best Family Game and Best Nintendo Game.

    Splatoon and family game don’t belong in the same sentence. The multiplayer is bad, and the single player is phenomenal. How does that make it a good family game?

      Having never played it myself, I’m not sure, but maybe they mean family-friendly?
