While Reggie Fils-Aime has moved on from his position as President of Nintendo of America, it doesn’t mean that the industry and gamers have forgotten his considerable contributions to Nintendo as well as the entire gaming culture. Considering this, it should come as little surprise that he has been given the Walter Day Life Time Achievement Award from the International Video Game Hall of Fame.

Reggie joined Nintendo of America in 2003 and was a major part of its continued success until he stepped aside in April of this year. During that time, he became a public face for the company thanks to the more casual, and often funny tone he helped bring to the company’s presentations. The fanbase quickly embraced him and made him the subject of many a meme. You can see Reggie’s acceptance speech bellow, as well as a sizzle reel of sorts reflecting his career with Nintendo.

The International Video Game Hall of Fame is associated with Twin Galaxies, an arcade that grew to become a respected record keeper of high scores. The award is named after the founder of both institutions, Walter Day. But Reggie wasn’t the only Nintendo related inductee as both Super Mario 64 and Super Smash Bros. Melee were also honored as standout titles of their respective eras.
