We have simply lost so many and so much with their passing :-(
Richard Joesph, Mike Singleton,Tony Gibson (http://www.gamesthat...ary/#more-10230) etc and now recently news of the passing of Les Player and Dave Needles.
I know for so many of us, their legacy will remain long, long after in our hearts, our minds, online, you name it.
Poor health has also put stop sadly to ST Head Over Heels 2 being finished, i've recieved word of another legend for myself being taken ill (not sure if it's public knowledge yet so won't say any more).....
I just want to pause for just a moment and give thanks to everyone from the games industry:Hardware desiner, coder, artist, musician, you name it, who's work made such a massive, massive impact on my childhood and later years.
Without these people, the magic simply would not of happened.....
It's that simple.
