The Nintendo You Say You Want Isn’t the Nintendo You Love

GenGAME writes: "Nintendo has always been about taking the everyday, the outdated, the old-school, and using it to do extraordinary things. It’s not the technology that they use that’s important – it’s the value they are able to offer with that technology that no one else has that matters. And in the end, I don’t think anyone in the industry does gaming – whether it’s touch screen gaming, motion control gaming, or even traditional gaming – quite like Nintendo."

The story is too old to be commented.

That what i always think about Nintendo when they Release the Wii platform !

A great read. It's true that Nintendo doesn't really need the most cutting edge of cutting edge. Nintendo is a software developer, and a hardware producer, unlike it's competition, the same people who are developers are also the same people who run the company. So, if any company knows about how to make a product, it's Nintendo. I know a lot of people, especially those who hated on the Wii will disagree with me, but I think Nintendo was responsible for some of the best experiences this generation, for those who dared to try without pre-hating the system.

Nintendo, however, does need a leap in online infrastructure, however. So far it seems like they're on the ball, though. I'm cautiously optimistic on that front.

Nintendo has always been about the game experience. I remember my fond memories of super mario bros, legend of Zelda, and metroid. Nintendo believes in quality games first and I do hope Nintendo does bring a great online experience to sweeten the deal.

Ps. please Nintendo bring back Mario paint.

This is the problem with you nintendo fans. You let the nostalgia blind you. Their games aren't that good anymore.

stragomccloud1879d ago

If that's true, why does Nintendo garner so many new fans as well? If your statement was true, then Nintendo games should be rapidly losing popularity since the mid 1990s.

@mika you're kidding me right? We as gamers all carry around nostalgia and find memories of our favorite games. If you're not in this to enjoy games find a new hobby.

linkratos1879d ago

I have fond memories of Mario Galaxy, Skyward Sword, Metroid Prime, Wind Waker, Brawl, F-Zero GX, and Donkey Kong Returns.

There is that better?

Lol then do tell me Mika, what is good? Because the last 3 Nintendo games I played where Kid Icarus Uprising, skyward sword, and donkey kong country returns, and I'm fairly certain those were good and I doubt nostalgia had anything to do with my love for the new kid Icarus, which is almost a whole new franchise

Um. No more than you being blinded by shiny 1080p cinematic graphics to mask otherwise dull gameplay ideas.

<Their games aren't that good anymore.>

That's just you. I'm looking forward to whatever new ideas they're trying to implement for their legendary IP's.

Nintendos exclusive games make up for the lack of hardware power.

It's funny how people always say graphics don't matter then all o the sudden bash Nintendo for a weak console.
