You Know You’re a Nintendo Fan When…

Nintendo has been a super power in gaming for many years. In most cases you can’t consider yourself a true gamer without playing some of Nintendo’s most renowned classics. Starting with the original Nintendo and working its way up to being the first company to release a next-gen consoles; Nintendo has come a long way. They have been a front runner in the gaming industry by having series that is so easy for people of all ages to love. This is the company that brought player Super Mario and Zelda; two games with some of the largest fan-bases out there. Anyone can sit around and say they are a fan of the company (who wouldn’t be) but the people who are real fans might take their love for Nintendo to the next level. You know you’re a Nintendo fan when… (3DS, GameCube, Nintendo DS, Retro, Wii, Wii U)

You know you're a nintendo fan when you actually think it's a good idea to buy the WiiU for yourself when you have a 360, PS3, and a Vita.

You know you have no life when you hate Nintendo, yet frequent Nintendo articles just to talk trash.
PhoenixRising37  +   846d ago
You know you're stupid when you tell people online you've never met that they have no life. Where in my comment does it say anything bad about Nintendo? Do a better job of attacking me this time please.

Well you criticized people for buying a new console. I suppose the word "preference" does not fall into your vocabulary?

It's fine if you yourself are not interested for one reason or another, but don't knock others who are. It's petty and childish.

EDIT: Unless I'm mistaken in thinking suggesting that buying a new console from a person's preferred game console manufacturer is now considered a bad idea is in fact not petty and immature.

I criticized myself for buying a 4th console. I know the word "preference" too, thank you very much. As the guy below me said, I think i was misunderstood. Thanks for throwing your two cents in though, I appreciate it. *sigh*
deafdani  +   846d ago
... I think people grossly misunderstood you.

THESHAUNZY  +   846d ago
You bought a PS Vita... I feel sorry for you the Wii U will have more games than that handheld in 2 months.

You know you're a Nintendo fan when:

... opening your presents you belt out the Zelda chest jingle
... you have the urge to jump and grab every flagpole you see
... you laugh at the fanboys of today who don't realize what a true console war is
... you played Final Fantasy 6 when it was Final Fantasy 3
... you have named at least one of your pets "Yoshi"
... you are banned from your local petting zoo because you kept jumping on and kicking the turtles
.. you have the lung capacity of a BEAST after blowing into so many cartridges
... you have spent almost half the pocket money you ever received on batteries for your gameboy brick

"... you played Final Fantasy 6 when it was Final Fantasy 3"

That confuses me to this day since I still attribute Kefka as the villain of FF3.

forgot to mention this one:

...your parents have to get you out of the police station when you shot a locked door expecting it to open itself.

nah, that didn't come out as funny as I expected but you my friend, hats off to ya. Loved the zoo and the beast lungs examples especially. Lol'ed so damn hard at my job when I first read it.

Haha! I like it! Glad to have brought a little light to your workplace :-)

I'd rather have had the Sega Dreamcast 3 than the WiiU.
millzy102  +   846d ago
yeah me too, oh wait sega doesnt make consoles no more and sonic is now mario's best friend, hope that makes you sad.

p.s. i wrote this on my gamepad and the wii u is infact the best console on market at the mo, i know i have all of them.
Picnic  +   846d ago
How nice for you Millzy. Why would you choose to hope that I was sad because a company that I respected for trying to give so much to gaming (a unique game in Jet Set Radio, the first fully online console, VMUs in controllers, the great Sonic Adventure 2) ceased to make consoles?
What kind of sadist must you, and perhaps 5 others, be to be glad at Sega's misfortune and begrudging of the loyalty of Sega's fans?
TheGrimBunny  +   846d ago
nice post, made me question by position as a Nintendo fan.

When you own a Super Mario Bros./The Legend Of Zelda blanket and pillowcase.
Benjaminkno  +   846d ago
I actually remember referencing Captain N, the game master.
I wrapped a Nintendo controller around my waste and walked around with a Zapper. Those were the days...
ShaunCameron  +   846d ago
I remember that cartoon. But I remember Simon Belmont being a narcissist, and Kid Icarus and Link being some pompous douchebags. Princess Lana was a babe.
Benjamminkno  +   846d ago
Yeah, they had their comedic roles as a kids cartoon, but it was such a blast to see them all interacting with each other. Looking back, of course it was lame.

i don't know bout you guys, but i know i'm a mario fan, when my son celebrated his 2nd birthday this year with a mario-themed party. and instead of nursery rhymes, he gets to listen to mario music. next year may be a Wii U birthday bash.

oh, it doesn't hurt that he does recognizes mario better than other characters.

You know you're a Nintendo fan when you name your dog "Samus"(people who don't know anything about Metroid always comment on how unique the name is!) and your Wifes' cat Luigi(suck it Mario:)
DarkHeroZX  +   846d ago
you know your a Nintendo fan when you think the Wii U is worth the $299-$349 price tag lol.
browngamer41  +   846d ago
You know you're a Nintendo troll when you go to a Nintendo thread just to insert your flawed and stupid opinion...
DarkHeroZX  +   845d ago
lol its not a flawed stupid opinion. Its pretty common knowledge. No DVD/Bluray player, tiny internal memory space. CPU is basically just an overclocked Wii CPU with an extra core. GPGPU is based on a 2008 mid-range card which is extremely cheap. Has a good amount of ram but you can get two gigs for less then $15 and in bulk its even cheaper. I'm assuming the real cost is from the controller but ehh not worth it. Has a really good browser but I don't use home consoles to browse the web... Outside of future 1st party games it ain't worth what Nintendo is asking for it.
