Personal

Although I had played and beaten many of the early games Toshihiko Nakago programmed, he was often not credited in the games, or I didn't pay much attention to the credits to recognize his name. In my adulthood, I started paying much closer attention to developers of the games I loved, and I started seeing Nakago's name show up a lot. This was when I discovered that he was the primary developer for the early [[Mario (universe)}|Mario]] and Zelda games, which are among my favorites.
