Two Top “Most Overrated” Charts

by T.J. GoforthMarch 24, 2007

Gamedaily logoChris Duffa of Game Daily fame wrote about his views on the most overrated icons in the video game industry. Low and behold, Nintendo reps own the top two slots:

-Reggie Fils-Aime at #2
-Shigeru Miyamoto at #1

Chris proclaimed that Miyamoto had to start inventing new IP’s and credit his fellow workers on making their games, not himself, and Reggie for not allowing the manufacture of more Wiis and the inclusion of friend codes.

I’ll have to disagree on some points here. Over the last five years, we’ve seen Pikmin, Excite Truck, Wii Sports, Wii Play, Animal Crossing, Mario Strikers, Donkey Konga, and Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, with even other second party Nintendo games like Eternal Darkness, Geist, Kirby’s Air Ride, Odama, and Chibi-Robo. And there is plenty of Nintendo political figures, like George Harrison, Takashi Tezuka, Satoru Iwata, Koji Kondo, and Perrin Kaplan, to name a few. How dare he accuse Reggie of not having enough Wii’s on retail shelves when the PS3 didn’t even make more systems than the Wii. It’s true you can find PS3’s everywhere, but there is little demand for that. It’s hard when demand is so high that you can’t produce enough.

    I’d say reggie is over rated for sure. I mean, what does he do exactly? Now Miyamoto, how could he be over rated. Hes the mastermind behind almost all of Nintendo’s coveted intellectual properties!

    Yes, the America is painfully low on Wiis. I have never seen a retail box for a Wii.

    Another way to understand the PS3 lack of interest is to check out the ebay auctions where you can get the system for a serious discount or you can get the system, 2 games, and a warranty for the retail price.

    Do people really hype Reggie up? I guess he’s more in the limelight than Nintendo’s other CEO but agreed, Shigy is Nintendo history. The guy reported this was probably still in diapers when he was creating one of the most popular world icons next to Mickey Mouse.
