Doug Bowser

From Crappy Games Wiki

Satoru Iwata is rolling in his grave.

Doug Bowser (born: August 28, 1965 [age 55]) is the current chairman of Nintendo of America (also known as NOA), a division of Nintendo.

He was originally an executive at Electronic Arts, but later joined Nintendo in 2015, and became the new chairman of NOA in May 2019, succeeding Reggie Fils Aime, who retired from the company shortly after.

Why He Sucks

  1. Ever since he became CEO of Nintendo of America, he's been taking the company's predatory business practices to a whole new level.
    • His incompetency shows as he failed to prevent a series of data leaks from compromising Nintendo of America in 2020.
  2. He thought it was a good idea to give Nintendo Switch ports of older games a limited release, comitting the same mistake as Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition by making them available until March 2021, with the worst offender being Super Mario 3D All-Stars.
  3. He ordered a cease-and-desist on the sales of Etika-themed Joy-Con that were supposed to be sent to charity for those with mental illness in honor of the late Etika.
    • While the charity was later confirmed to be a scam, it's unlikely that Doug Bowser and the company knew that this was the case until after.
  4. He and the company shut down a fan-made, Nintendo-approved tournament with Super Smash Bros. Melee being the game there all because The Big House used a mod called “Slippi” which allows players to play Melee online, leading Melee fans to boycott Nintendo and create hashtags such as #FreeMelee.
  5. His former position at Electronic Arts (also more commonly known as EA) could explain his actions as the current chairman of Nintendo Of America given how terrible the former company is.
  6. He shut down a Splatoon 2 live stream due to a large amount of players during that stream showing support for #FreeMelee and the gamers who were supposed to take part of that now-shut down Melee. This may indicate that he can't take the slightest bit of criticism.
  7. In 2020, he caused all of Nintendo to go almost completely radio silent with little-to-no new game announcements for 9 months straight outside of some shadow announcements like Paper Mario: The Origami King, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, and the announcement of Byleth in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, no new info on upcoming games that are stuck in development hell like Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild Sequel, and killing off general Nintendo Directs in favor of "spinoff" ones.
  8. He took down thousands of OST videos of Nintendo games like Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Mario Kart Wii from YouTube without even providing an alternative method of listening to them, a port of Super Mario Bros. for the Commodore 64 in 2019, a remaster of Super Mario 64 for PC and Content ID blocked thousands more videos featuring gameplay of their recent games worldwide instead of profiting off said videos. In fact the only Mario Kart Wii song that's available to view from GilvaSunner is the Mega Mushroom theme.
  9. For no reason, he pulled all DSiWare games in the US 3DS eShop made before 2011 without warning. He thankfully put most of the games back on the shop a week later.
  10. Although it depends on your opinion, he made Mario (Nintendo's MASCOT) a punching bag again in 2020, after he became one in 2017.
  11. On February 5th, 2021, he ordered a cease-and-desist on SuperMarioLogan/SuperBowserLogan due to using Mario plushes for raunchy humor, misdirecting audiences, and profiting by doing this. This led for Logan to rebrand his whole channel and use human plushies of his characters instead. While this might be justified due to misuse of the Mario franchise, the timing for this seems rather odd when most of the controversies of SML was already done years before this C&D occurred.
  12. Because of all his actions, he damaged Nintendo's reputation.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The one positive thing he contributes to Nintendo is his last name, which is also a name of the well-known villain from the Super Mario Bros. franchise, King Bowser Koopa.
  2. His actions come from Nintendo of America, not Nintendo as a whole.
  3. While Byleth's announcement in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was not surprising and they were already fed up with more Fire Emblem characters, the announcement surprised some people and gamers who played the original game.
  4. Mentioned in WIS #9, he put most of the DSiWare games back on the US 3DS eShop.

Satoru Iwata is crying right now in heaven. What the fuck happened to you Nintendo of America? Why did you have to hire this piece of shit? Why did you have to give a middle finger to content creators who want a positive future? Why did you have to be mean to GilvaSunner? Why did you remain silent? Why are you against mods about a game that you don't give a shit anymore? Why didn't you gave a fuck about Etika?

Sorry about my language, I'm so fucking depressed about this, it's not even funny.

Update: I might have overreacted earlier about the C&D mainly because it would've led to the extinction to Mario plush channels, but this was due to Logan using the Mario brand for raunchy content. So, I guess it been all settled. But I still hate Doug Bowser for his other decisions.
