You’re not just entitled to your Nintendo Opinion - You must argue your beliefs

Over the past few months we have seen some pretty bad articles on Nintendo”s Wii U console. The typical “Doom and Gloom” articles that states a opinion on the events of what will happen with the Wii U. However in the recent days we have seen a new form of bad opinion articles. The over the top positive and lack of educated judgement article appeared on the internet.

Inside this article we explore why you need to have more just a thrown out opinion and why you need to back up your claims. (3DS, Industry, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

"You’re not entitled to your Nintendo Opinion" -- says a Nintendo opinion.
zeal0us  +   645d ago
It just the title of the article.

"In summary when I write and when people write opinion articles they must be able to argue their points with reason and logic. Not come to conclusions that make no sense based on no data of three consoles on the market field. Be opened mind and understand when your thoughts have been proven wrong"

If only majority of gaming journalism was that way. Nowadays some to most gaming sites don't care about being right or wrong but rather how many hits they get.

Also Chris, when the average N4G user sees "You’re not entitled to your Nintendo Opinion" in the description area. They will more than likely make a comment like the one above me without even reading the article.

This is a gaming site and people get ridiculously passionate about a hobby but hey to each his own. It's more of a rumor site anyways, I need to start only coming on around big events.

But chris that is the problem. There are few actual technical articles written in gaming these days. Other than the sparse pieces from Beyond 3D or some such rare site, gaming journalism has become nothing more than one massive wahhhh!!!! fest with arrogant children throwing their opinions around like their dirty laundry and then having a conniption when that same opinion is questioned.

Reviews in particular are simply a collection of one ridiculous person's likes and dislikes. Gone are the days of justified and objective analysis tempered by the steady hand of a true editor. And there certainly are no written or imagined standards to which a reviewer must adhere.

These small minded writers crank out articles and believe you should simply agree the way most people do with some inane remark made by their favorite celebrity - because these writers do at the end of the day believe they have some higher societal standing. After all, they are on THE INTERNET! Their opinion is more important than the game itself!

No,the best source of information these days happens to be the developer. At least there the tempered line is easy to spot and you are not giving a webhit to the ever growing pile of trash that is all forms of journalism these days.

The problem with fanboys is they are angered when good games won't come to their console. Regardless of what their choice console is.

I think this about sums it up:

You don't have to justify your opinions or tastes to anyone. And anyone who think otherwise is a person you should ignore.

The Wii U is steadily becoming irrelevant and you can blame Nintendo for it.

Not only did Nintendo launch with a very basic spec (even by 2007 standards), they also have hardly any games to champion the system some 5-6 months later.

To make matters worse, hardly any of the esteemed 3rd party publishers/developers have a remote interest in Wii U.

No Nintendo presence @E3 is a further kick in the teeth for Ninty fans. The once great Nintendo is stuck in consoles past.

The Wii U seems resigned to catering for the hardcore Ninty fans, just like every other Nintendo system prior to the SNES.

Fans will argue the Wii sold extremely well, and they'd be right. because Wii was released at the perfect time, when many we're looking for something different, but a high proportion of Wii purchasers were not gamers, and have no intention of purchasing Wii U.

IMO The ancient Gamecube is far better than the Wii U and that was 3 generations ago.

I have no issue with Wii U fans, I am very disappointed with Nintendo (again) and I don't need to own the console to comment. MS/Sony mess up too, and I comment when it's warranted.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...

I don't comment on N4G for popularity, so your disagrees/agrees are welcome ;)

You can't count a system out when the company hasn't even released its system sellers. That said, if you are disappointed with what is on the horizon, then you have lost something important. That part of the gamers that craves fun and diversity. I am sorry for your loss.

Again, regarding the "irrelevancy" of the Wii U, You can count the system out, when the "system sellers" release and the system sales don't improve.

For now, there is insufficient data.

I point to the PS3 and 3DS as the most recent examples.

I'm pretty sure you are entitled to your Nintendo opinion.

I just don't want to hear it, either way.
stragomccloud  +   644d ago
We should always be open to hearing opinions regardless of how we feel about them. Assuming they are logical and well thought out.

There is no argument, either buy the system cause your a gamer, or be quiet about it since you don't own one. Everyone who bought a WiiU knows there's gonna be sick games on the WiiU. It's inevitable. You know what, don't stop the hate? Your hate fuels the fire that burns.

Good to see someone else speaking some sense about the endless wiiU and Nintendo bashing.

I wrote a similar article about wiiU sales a while ago too. Backed it all up with facts and figures too.

look in my submissions if you're intereted.

When Nintendo bows down to the all powerful ps4, it will be a glorious day

I love how people practically beg for Nintendo to exit the console business so they can make games for other systems, yet refuse to ever actually buy a system that can play those games. If Nintendo ever did leave the console business, the quality of the software would greatly decline. They are in the business of making a whole experience and that is possible because they produce all parts of the game experience. Furthermore, the fact of the matter is that Nintendo is the only one of the big three, and one of the few game companies that is actually run by current/former developers. That is why they can produce so much compelling software.

Guys, swallow your pride, anger, fanboyish attitudes that make gamers look like a mindless rabble of 13 year olds and take a dive with the Wii U. Whether you agree with it or not, Nintendo has the strongest exclusive lineup of any console every generation. Note that I am not arguing that they necessarily have the best. I am simply arguing that they have the strongest lineup. That alone makes any Nintendo console a worthy purchase. I hate to pull this card, but if you really don't like Nintendo games, there has to be something wrong. They make pretty much every genre of game, and have a knack for doing it well, and with an incredible polish.

so my other comment got deleted causes its "trolling". so its trolling to acknowledge that nintendo does not have the core gamer in mind when they makes these consoles? its trolling to hope nintendo would go software only because that could catapult them to greatness (snes era) again? nintendo males some excellent games (although i could do without mario...enough already). sony can bring these franchises to greatness, the greatness it deserves. i really do not see how that is..."trolling".

After the flak the PS3 endured this past generation, anything is fair game.

i remember that ridiculous hate from all sides, anything is fair game in the land of the internets.
