GDC's Satoru Iwata tribute is best watched with a box of tissues on hand

Your work colleagues don't mind you bawling your eyes out, right?

The late, great Satoru Iwata was remembered at the Game Developer's Choice awards with this lovely tribute.

The animated three minute video was drawn by Braid artist David Hellman, and presented a brief, but beautiful look at Satoru Iwata's contributions to the industry.

The video closes with a quote from Iwata's GDC 2005 speech.

"...in my heart, I am a gamer."

Now please excuse me while I curl up into a ball and sob uncontrollably in the corner. I'll see you over here in precisely three minutes.
