Nintendo is not fearful that continually releasing new Mario games will come back to bite the company.
just announce the new Zelda game already.
People do not seem to mind. I am not a fan of Mario games (I really disliked Super Mario galaxy 2) but it seems a lot of people are so I agree there seems to be no harm.
Technically there is no problem,it's how do you keep the ip fresh?
I dont think nintendo knows how to create a new game anymore... Just recycle what they have over n over w btr graphics
They certainly knows how to create games compared to all these teenager crap games: cod,gow,gears,me,gta,halo,kill zone.
Seriously your picking some fight bad mouthing some of the biggest hardcore IPs this gen. Fight the fight but you'll be on your own no doubt about that.
Judging by your avatar & name, id think u were knowledgable about games.. I agree that this gen is flooded with shooters but Sony is the only company making new games in multiple genres.. Its ok to make sequels & do the same game a different way but nintendo has been doing the same damn thing for decades.. I respect their work but i feel they should add more.. N64s launch with mario & pilot wings offered more than all the wii u 1st party games combined.. Revolutionary 3D gameplay & well thought out designs.. These other party games aren't as impact full. & since N64, not much has changed in all their franchises.. Waggling a wii mote isnt exactly making a groundbreaking new game
LOL This guy says GTA is crap, good luck in life bro. Also, Halo, Killzone, and GoW are crap? You have no taste in gaming then.
All those games are really fun so stfu!!!! Also by "gow" do you mean God of war or Gears of war? Actually why would i care? I like both!
I am burnt out on the 2D Mario games and I really want something fresh from the series. My favorite Mario games are the RPGs and I really hope the WiiU gets a Paper Mario or Mario and Luigi RPG game. Also, would love to see now that Nintendo is getting good in with other developers, maybe they can work with Myst Walker to create a JRPG Legend of Zelda something similar to the classic Mario RPG from the good old days. Not looking for a Skyrim, but I would love to see a turned-based Zelda title. Just kind of want to see it before I leave this world.
They release varied Mario games, I prefer the 3D ones like Galaxy, but I also enjoy the throwback games like New Super Mario Bro's. As long as they are still good and people still want them, why not release them? I'm starting to understand that the only people who complain about "milking" are ones who are never happy with anything, so they find the need to complain.
People still complain that call of duty gets an annual release, Nintendo milks so much of their old franchises.
They will eventually run out of ideas, proof is in some of the new enemy's they release in each new version. Same with Pokemon, 75% of new pokemon are eye sores, trubbish? really?
Gotta catch 'em all...again, again, and again.
Implying that there aren't any "eye sore" Pokemon from the very 1st gen.
Hmm maybe there were some like Jinx, but now they're just getting horrible. Pretty sure there is an ice cream cone pokemon that evolves into more scoops. What other eye sores were in the first generation?
@cpayne93 Vanillette is not actually ice cream; it just looks like one. And not that I'm saying that other gens don't have there fair share of bad Pokemon, but 1st gen is also guilty of this. You have a ball that evolves into a bigger ball; a slime that evolves into bigger slime; a magnet evolving into more magnets; 5 eggs evolving into a big pine tree with legs; A pathetic fish that is nearly useless until you evolve it; Slowpoke... an "ugly" pokemon that people seem to forget when bashing the newer pokemon; Jynx; A rock with arms; Mr. Mime being a species of... whatever; I could go on, but I don't want to sound like a Gen 1 hater. Pokemon can be anything. Some people will hate it, but some people will love it. Gen 1 is loved because it was the first game in the series almost all gamers have played; it's nostalgia. If any other gen would have been the first gen, then the result would be the same.
Theres a difference between nostalgia and bad looking pokemon. While 1st gen does have some eye sores, they've come to be loved. Current ones shouldn't be this bad. I bet anyone here can look around their computer area and make up a pokemon on the spot.
I hate Mario games, but who cares ? Exactly, Nintendo don't care and they shouldn't.
It depends how you go about it. If you release 2 new mario games a year on a regular basis (and I doubt they would) then yeah I'm calling you out.
I love Mario games, but I think they need to slow down a little or they will over saturate their market.
Yeah and they're exactly right to, so long as they can keep making excellent Mario games and - let's face it - they can.
You can release as many games of a franchise as you want. The thing is, you have to make sure that they're good.
Starfox, Starfox, Starfox!!! ....STARFOX!!!....
That's BS! Seriously...I'm so fed up of Nintendo. Oversaturation of a series will eventually cause danger to the company, no matter how popular the franchise is. Guitar Hero and Final Fantasy are examples of this.
there needs to be some innovation going on. Nintendo had an overall bad backlash over new super mario bros 2. I agree its fun but for the first time it seems the recycling is just too much.
I just thought it was over saturation when they announced 3 mario games at once at E3. How bout Zelda HD, kirby, star fox, metroid hell maybe even make a new IP with a cool new mascot. But aslong as its fun I guess it dosent rlly matter.
A lot of people just say Mario is recycled stuff but tbh every single Mario game I've played, I've enjoyed and it never occurred to me that Mario is just the same game recycled over and over again. Again, this is just my view on the Mario games. On a side note, I don't mind them making lots of Mario games but Nintendo has lots of ips so they should go and make those games too like Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, F-Zero,StarFox just to name a few. I hope none of those series are missing this gen because it was pretty disappointing there was no StarFox on Wii.
There is no problem. They keep making Mario games because new gamers keep emerging. As long as children are born, they will grow up with some Mario. Nintendo is not making Mario games for people that played mario 15 years ago. They make them because people will keep discovering Mario and some older gamers still play a few Mario games. We are not the only generation of gamers to exist. If you are in your 20's and are complaining about a franchise made(mainly) for younger kids then you need something else to keep your mind occupied. Where do people get the idea that Nintendo makes these Mario games for the original NES and SNES owners?
