Genre’s That Nintendo Needs to Explore

MVGN writes "Nintendo has conquered the casual market with last generations release of the Nintendo Wii. They have (arguably) the industries most recognizable icons in Mario, Zelda, Link, Metriod, Pokemon, Kirby and Star Fox (just to name a few). Nintendo however still has yet to explore a number of genre’s within the gaming world and we here at myvideogamenews decided to compile a list of genre’s that Nintendo needs to explore. MVGN decided to put them all in a wonderful little list for your reading pleasure.

Realistic Car Racing - Wouldn't Nintendo just wind up making a spiritual successor to Blur? Mario Kart's a pretty successful franchise. There isn't much reason for them to invest in a more realistic racing outlet when the world already has Forza and Gran Turismo.

MMORPG - Yeah, I can get behind that.

FPS - While it's more of a First Person Adventure, I'm guessing the author never played Metroid Prime, 2 or 3?

Tower Defense - Er... Dillon's Rolling Western? Or its soon-to-be-released sequel? Those games exist, you know. And they're pretty good too.

Realistic Car Racing - Besides that, Project Cars is coming.

MMORPG - That "Destiny" from Bungie won't be MMO with RPG elements? I know it isn't confirmed for Wii U yet but it is almost there.

FPS - Metroid Prime Trilogy is great, the wolrd of gaming is already full of shooters, Miyamoto wishes to make a shooter too, right?

I wouldn't get to excited about Project Cars. I've been in the dev discussion and they haven't even really done anything on the Wii U version, but they've done a lot for the PS3/360 versoin.

More than likely, they'll just port the 360/PS3 version to the Wii U at the last minute like the sloppy ports it got a launch, which means that it will run and look like crap leading to more fanboys blasting the Wii U as incapable when it was lazy development.

Don't expect Project Cars to take advantage of the Wii U's next gen capabilities.

@lilbroRx oh, I didn't knew that

PopRocks3591716d ago

I didn't know that either. Certainly a shame if it's true, but then that's what my PC/PS3 are for.

"FPS - While it's more of a First Person Adventure, I'm guessing the author never played Metroid Prime, 2 or 3? "

Why not have more?

lilbroRx1717d ago

Because the FPS genre is already to saturated and overdone as it is. Do we really need another one?

Realistic Car Racing- While it might not be as "realistic" as GT or Forza, F-Zero is fun, hard, and addictive as hell, maybe if nintendo helped the franchise evolve on the wiiu it could be nintendo's forza or GT.

Platformer with an attitude- hmmm,it would be something to see I give you that.

MMORPG- we've been asking for this for a long time.

FPS- putting the old nintendo imagination on an FPS would be awesome, I hope something like Metroid prime, or bioshock (In terms of imagination and excellence)

Tower Defense- Starship defense is an amazing DSi title that needs more recognition, it would be an amazing franchise for the wiiu if they added colors and more texture. It's addictive.

There is a grammatical error in this headline.

Donnieboi1717d ago

I hear what your saying, but it's not THAT big of a deal. We're human beings not robots. We can still "compute" what it means.

MattS1717d ago

Try and get a professional writing job with that attitude.

You want games journalism to get better? Start by insisting the writers understand the very basics of writing.

PopRocks3591717d ago

Apparently it's good to defend bad grammar in professional journalism.

TheoreticalParticle1717d ago

There are 6 whole words in that title. It's not a matter of whether or not someone's intelligent enough to figure it out, it's a matter of, "Hey, if you're so poor as a writer that you can't even do that correctly, you're not a writer I should be paying any attention to".

kirbyu1717d ago

What a dumb article. They basically just named every genre Nintendo hasn't made.

Donnieboi1717d ago

--RTS games (but remember, the Wii U is single touch so no pinching and zooming with 2 fingers)

--More Augmented Reality stuff (where u rotate the Pad and see a real stereoscopic 3d world in the screen as u rotate the pad)

Needs more of these on that Wii U gamepad's screen

PopRocks3591717d ago

Out of curiosity, if there was one concept that would sell you on the platform, what would that be?
