I'd rather spend my time thinking of something pleasant. Like strong, well toned sexy women. Getting eaten alive by a great white shark or the sun going supernova and destroying Earth.

Yeah, the options are pretty limited. I wouldn't say he's a genius in the same way that Miyamoto/Iwata are but he's far from a fool.

Yeah, that's a problem games had back then. You actually had to get good at them. - Mctias

Reggie is a clueless COO. He makes empty statements about Sony being evil (in a one-size-fits-all sense) at E3 2012, Shows up at the VGX with the world watching only to present a character in a game that isn't really all that hyped, fails interview time after time with Geoff Keighley because 1) Geoff is an a-hole let's face it and 2) Reggie misses all opportunities to convince that his products are great by making generic statements or just overhypes something that isn't worthy of attention.

"The Wii U is HD. It's 1080p... IT'S DONE!"
No Reggie. It's not 1080p. It's 720p in most titles and we've had that since 2006.

[About NSMBU] "It's Mario, it's what you've been asking for!"
No Reggie. That is not the Mario everybody has been asking for, and this time your mainstream isn't there to give you millions off of this ripoff.

Miyamoto was once a genious, but lately his design-philosophies have been toxic for Nintendo. From forcing out the story from Paper Mario: Sticker Star to nearly saying no to ALBW and to his lack of creativity lately. It has been speculated ever since 2010 that he's in a creative block. He's getting older too, it's time he doesn't have as much power at Nintendo.

Iwata is a claustrophobic (from our POV) and stuck-up CEO, right in there with the morons at the top of the EA leaderships or MS. He's more caring about games themselves however, but he's too strict to let Nintendo's in-house teams do anything other than the established franchises since the 80's and he's too stubborn to leave his power to someone who handles the situation better.

I have to be honest. I don't see a lot of passion from Nintendo anymore. I see great games that are by-the-numbers, but I see no innovation or ambition anymore.

I like the way you think.
