    Reasons:
    He really doesn't actually know much about games, I doubt he even plays them (proof being that he once said that Spider-Man 2 was his favourite DS launch game).
    When he arrives on stage he makes out that he's just made a great announcement when in fact he hasn't.
    He has a really smug face.
    He claims that Wii owners have had more than enough games to play within last year, mentioning Mario Party 9 as one of these "great" titles.
    He hasn't been kicking ass and taking names...actually I don't think he ever has.
    He makes lots of "none statements" and skirts around questions.
    He doesn't seem to grasp the fact that gamers aren't hyped for games like Wii Fit and don't see them as hype worthy...then he says the same gamers are "wrong" because those games went on to sell millions.
    He earns millions and I don't.

    EDIT:
    I still love Nintendo, Iwata is cute and Miyamoto is the man.

    He didn't even know that the Virtual Boy was a thing until last year.

    But, but... his body is ready. He said that once. You can't hate him.

    I guess I only really liked "Meme Reggie", kinda like "Meme Chuck Norris" where the real person is actually kinda crappy.

    After looking it up it seems that I was misled...He was "unfamiliar" with the platform until 2010.

    The difference between Iwata/Miyamoto and Reggie is that the former are actual game developers who have a genuine passion for videogames while Reggie is just a PR person.

    He's also president of NoA and is generally perceived as being the Western face of Nintendo. He should be in tune with why gamers feel a little butthurt and do more to try and make them feel less so. His comments of late come off as "fuck you we sold millions of this title so we're right" rather than be sympathetic to why at the end of a big conference we are a little "is that it?" when they don't announce something we feel is huge.

    Reggie is just a face, a spokesperson. We all know he's spewing misleading pr bullshit all the time and that he probably doesn't even play games.
    But man, that character and the memes surrounding him! We europeans got Shibata and while he's probably a better overall president than Reggie he isn't nearly as entertaining, I mean you can't dislike a business man who calls himself the Regginator. The guy is always goofing around and you newer know what the next thing he'll say or do is.

    Reggie is just a meme goldmine for some reason.

    Can't believe how bad he is, he's constantly crashing into walls, falling and switching between first person and normal view.
