I think we all know by now that a good man has passed away. Sadly, Robin Williams took his own life after battling depression, anxiety and Parkinson's disease.

What I learned recently was that Robin Williams was an avid gamer, specifically of the Legend of Zelda franchise. So much so that he named his daughter Zelda after the famous Princess Zelda.

Now, Gamers from across the world have banned together and called for Nintendo to immortalize Robin into one of their upcoming Legend of Zelda titles.

Nintendo responded with a very tactful responce:

"Robin Williams was loved at Nintendo." offered a Nintendo spokesperson. "Our hearts go out to his entire family, and especially to Zelda Williams who we've worked with multiple times.

"We appreciate the outpouring of support from the gaming community, and hear the request of fans to honor him in a future game. We will not be discussing what might be possible for future games during this difficult time, but we will hold our memories of Robin close."

This seems to be a way of them saying that if they are to do so, it would be long after the media frenzy has settled and it can be done in a respectful way.To that end, an artist named OscarJoyo [oscarjoyo.tumblr.com] drew the linked piece of art and I think there can be no better way to include him.

Blizzard has already made strong hints that they are going to include a Robin Williams NPC of their own in World of Warcraft, though nothing defiant has been made clear.

So what about you? How are you honoring his memory? How do you think Blizzard and Nintendo should honor him?

Robin Williams may be the reason Sid Meier's Civilization is called "Sid Meier's Civilization" rather than just "Civilization"

It's not my fault basically no one is talking about this. Shouldn't the entire world be in mourning and be talking about this on every single channel?

Jumanji was the shit.

I'm taking Robin William's suicide worse than I took my psychiatrists.
