AmA with John Numbers, the 2015 Nintendo World Champion

2015 Nintendo World Champion John Numbers held an AmA (Ask me Anything) on the Nintendo subreddit. Here are a couple choice quotes:

On meeting Shigeru Miyamoto:

I was definitely starstruck seeing the man in person. I was very excited to shake his hand, and receive his autograph. I took an opportunity off-mic to thank him for all of the good experiences I’ve had with Nintendo games growing up.

On the event being 50% contestants who qualified and 50% invitees:

I had no problem with the invitees showing up. The speedrunners are all talented gamers, and I can understand them being allowed to appear onstage. Egoraptor too, and he actually did a lot better than anyone was expecting(including Ego himself), so kudos to his good work too.

On whether he’s actually going to use his signed 3DS:

I’m still trying to figure that out. If I do ever end up using it I’ll definitely be getting a super protective case for it. Can’t let a national treasure like that be damaged.
