One of the titans of retro video gaming evangelism and business sense within the industry has left us. I’m very sorry to report that Keith “Mr. Intellivision” Robinson, one of the organizing forces who kept the “Blue Sky Rangers” team behind the Intellivision working together both during and after the classic console’s heyday, has left us.

Thanks for the post. We should know and care about the pioneers of our hobby.

While not an Intellivision guy back in the day, it seems a shame it never got a second act post crash. With the emphasis on sports, or other creative games like the AD&D games, I wonder if a successor would have competed against the NES any better than the Master System did. I bet people like Robinson would have loved the chance.

He was still very active in the Classic gaming community, and still getting Intelliviision stuff out there in the stores right up until now. This is very sad news. :(

Some of my favorite officially released games for the Intellivision were released post crash. They were never going to do the numbers of Nintendo, Sega, or Atari, but there was a lot of thought and care that went into them.
