In a strange turn of events, the ever critical Michael Pachter has praised Nintendo’s participation at The Game Awards 2014. In fact Pachter said that Nintendo blew away the competition at the event with the re-reveal of Zelda for the Wii U. He also had some kind words for Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. Here’s what the Wedbush analyst had to say about the event.
“Microsoft made a mistake skipping The Game Awards altogether,” said Pachter. “The awards show was an opportunity to steal a little thunder from PSX, and Nintendo and Reggie seized the opportunity. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to compliment Reggie, as I haven’t had many chances to say what a good job he has done in an otherwise dismal year. Nintendo really stood out with that Zelda announcement.”
