I like Platinum Games, Bayonetta, Wonderful 101 & some of the franchises they made as Team Clover. And he was the head of the first installment of one of my favorite gaming franchises (Devil May Cry) but being a good game developer shouldn't excuse his attitude.

Calling Smash Fans Idiots - It's obvious he was annoyed by how many people were asking for this or that character for the game. But lashing out like that is not a good way to handle the situation and almost unprofessional. If he doesn't like Smash or Smash Fans and wants to say something about it, that's fine. But going around calling them idiots is not.

It's also kind of unprofessional that he often calls people on Twitter idiots, douche bags, ect. Yet the most people do is praise him for it, often promoting that kind of attitude. Imagine if Sakurai called all Smash fans assholes or if Reggie called all American Nintendo fans man-children. In the end we would let it fly, which is the opposite thing we should do.

Like I said, I don't hate his company, characters or games, but it's only him I don't like.

Honestly, I kind of thought that as well when I first heard about his attitude.
It's just disgusting, and immature. He gets a free pass for everything, though, can't even tell why.

He calls lots of people idiots lol. But yeah, it is unprofessional, but it's the type of person he is.
He has fun with dealing the dumb people that try to engage him on the internet.

Honestly a lot of people fail to read the stuff he's said, so I'm not surprised that he just lumps a bunch into one big group.

People (like me) love it because it's hilarious. If someone's trying to pester him with stupid bull**** or they're trying too hard to be funny, he has no qualms about calling them idiots or telling them to go ask their moms.

Even if you don't agree with his way of handling things, it's not serious enough to be getting upset about it. It's like getting mad about Mango's on-camera persona, or Leffen's tweets.

Meh. Prefer it to the typical meaningless words most devs give us. If you're going to give us an excuse at least be honest about it, Nintendo...

I'm not a fan of his overall attitude either, it comes of as egotistical almost. "Haha look at how cool I am guys, a known industry name being EPIC on Twitter"

It's silly

He's like the Wendy's Twitter of gaming. extremely unfunny and nowhere near as subversive as people say he is, but edgy 12 year olds eat it right up.

if you want to see a gaming Twitter done right, check out the official Pac-Man Twitter. really wholesome and brightens up the mood every time you see a new post, even through people won't stop harassing them over Pac-Man World 4 unfortunately...
