We forgot to get him a present, but you can help wish Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto a happy 60th birthday by leaving him a message in this reader discussion.

Mr. Miyamoto is the most legendary game designer in the history of the industry. As the creator of Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Pikmin, and Star Fox, he singlehandedly helped reshape the game industry in the '80s and '90s.

What's your favorite memory from a Miyamoto game? What would you say to him if you had the chance to meet him? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

(By the way, his birthday is on November 16. Though this story shows a November 15 time stamp, it's already the 16th in Japan, so let's get this party started)
