Perhaps unsurprisingly, many within the gaming industry rallied to pay homage to Nimoy’s memory, from official accounts of developers to Game Directors, from musicians to those that lend their voices to our favorite characters. Below you can see some of the many:

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
