It\u2019s the end of an era for Nintendo of America\u2019s President, Reggie Fils-Aime. After 15 years strong, he has decided to retire from his prominent and impactful role at Nintendo. Replacing him will be Doug Browser, who\u2019s currently serving as Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the gaming company.\r\n\r\nIf you\u2019ve been a fan of Nintendo since the introduction of the GameCube, you know how much Reggie meant to the company. He wasn\u2019t just big in stature. He had a lot of personality and was a driving force behind Nintendo\u2019s marketing campaigns.\r\n\r\nYou often see those in a similar position fail to connect with gamers. They know what they need to push, but their lack of passion for gaming sort of reveals itself eventually. This wasn\u2019t the case for Reggie. He knew exactly how to connect with the beloved fans of Nintendo. He had a warmth about him that you could just feel the moment he walked up on stage.\r\n\r\nReggie had a lot of beliefs, but the idea of having fun while gaming always took center stage. When he spoke, it didn\u2019t seem like a ploy to get people to buy games. It felt like a call to enjoy games with the family and make memories that last a lifetime.\r\n\r\nReggie did a lot during his time representing Nintendo. He helped push the Nintendo DS, an iconic handheld that originally wasn\u2019t received with high praise. Yet, Reggie\u2019s passion came through and it helped the portable device seem like a must-own piece of technology. He drastically shifted the public\u2019s perception.\r\n\r\nHe was also responsible for pushing the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Switch, two consoles that have sealed Nintendo\u2019s legacy among the greats. Even when things didn\u2019t go so well for Nintendo, Reggie kept a brave face and spoke with honesty. This was certainly the case when he talked about the Nintendo Wii U. It did pretty abysmal numbers in terms of sales, yet Reggie described Nintendo\u2019s shortcomings in an honest and refreshing manner.\r\n\r\nHe never tried to be deceitful when being interviewed or giving speeches at E3. For this, he will always be remembered. What awaits him in retirement remains unknown. It is certain that he deserves this break. He\u2019s done so much for a company that many have come to know and love.\r\n\r\nHis legacy will live on well after he\u2019s gone, especially for those involved in the industry. It\u2019s a retirement well deserved.
