In what was quite an interesting and informative interview with Reggie Fils-Aime by Siliconera, Reggie revealed to us his thoughts on the company, games, and the effect fans have on the decisions of Nintendo of America. While many questions were asked and answered, one stood out to me; it asked what the most significant gaming innovation of the past decade was. Reggie's answer was, of course, the Wii Remote.
What would you say is the most significant innovation in gaming in the past decade?
"It’s gotta be the Wii Remote. The Wii Remote introduced a completely new style of play that arguably set an industry standard for motion controls, and let the consumer experience games in an entirely new way. The thing, I think, that’s really set Nintendo apart from the competition is its focus on new styles of play. We’re always looking for ways to innovate, ways to bring new and fun experiences to the consumer. In the end, it’s all about the software, and all about how you experience that software—and controllers have a huge effect on that." — Reggie Fils-Aime
