Ridiculously Awesome Posts #1: Iwata, a Great CEO for Handhelds, Not Consoles

For the first post in this series, I’m quoting a post from our senior VIP editor and writing mentor on the site, Alex Balderas. You can spot him on the forums on any typical day, chatting freely and joking around with everyone else. In this particular post, he responded to another forum member (Superfakerbros) who had posited that Iwata was the perfect president for handheld systems and a weak president for console systems.

This was his response (3DS, GameCube, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

After reading the article to get clarity in the post, I could'nt disagree more. I really enjoy gaming and I've been gaming since the Atari days. Now that I'm grown with a family of my own I find myself with far less time to do one of the things I love. Nintendo's content provides those quick gaming sessions, I can even play something like Zenoblade Chronicles with its save anytime feature. Then there is the masterpiece that is SM3DW, I can pick up the Gamepad at anytime and have a great gaming session without having to go through tons of story or run and fetch quest.

Granted Nintendo may not cater to gamer with infinite time, but they keep this gamer gaming. Maybe Nintendo just grew up with me.

Nintendo is for the family gamer. I have a two year old and he goes from room to room. With the gamepad I can follow him around house and continue gaming.
