Nintendo Boasts Most Fun Slate at E3

Hardcore Gamer: Nintendo may not be aspiring to revolutionize the medium, but they’re proving to be a crucial haven for our sanity amongst the onslaught of mature, overly-complicated video games. (3DS, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, New Super Luigi U, Nintendo, Super Mario 3D World, Wii U)

Nintendo actually has mature titles (Fire Emblem) and even its more easy-going franchises (like Pokemon and Mario) have had some relatively dark-ish themes, something I'd like to see expanded upon.

Depends on whether you believe it's only possible to have fun playing Nintendo games.

I'm not liking the fact many games are becoming more gritty and realistic, because it's not just the graphics but the gameplay going that way as well.. now that works for a few games, but i found others like GTA IV boring compared to San Andreas and Vice City because of that.

This is why i really like Nintendo lately, also MK8 looks really good even if the Wii U is below PS4 technically.. still looks great with that style it uses, good enough for me.

Going too far with realism ruins a lot of games i think.

Ok, you aren't smug at all Nintendo /s.

Nintendo's E3 showing, while it was very safe and predictable, will still be the most fun to play and have the best gameplay of most of the titles shown by others at E3.

Nintendo need a shake up on their games, I've nothing against their IP and have a lot of fun with their systems in the past (up to the gamecube, I was not buying into the Wii thank you).

Also, back around the GC era I had a vision that someday Nintendo would actually make a powerful console once again, the most powerful, and would come with a white HMD with red Nintendo logo emblazoned on the side. Yes, virtual reality, Nintendo should talk to the guys at Oculus and make a console that excites if they are going to stick to their same old IP for the next 2 decades.

5 years from now Ninty could release a very powerful console with virtual reality versions of their games. I think the bright colourful worlds would work well, a virtual nintendo theme park... I'm surprised they have held back since the Wiimote (Wii u is zzzz sorry) and not chased something else to shake gaming up (but properly this time not a bit of inept motion gaming).

I guess at this rate Sony are more likely to move into VR before Nintendo, either half way through the coming gen or the generation after that. There's only so much you can keep doing with 2D displays that you stare at before everyone becomes jaded.

PS4 will be great for next gen (pre ordered!) but oculus on PC is where the real 'next gen' is going to be starting, it may take a while to reach it though. And as Nintendo basically have nothing to lose they are in as good a position as any to have a stab at bringing proper VR to the console masses (forget the virtual boy please)

I hope that you`ll never run a company for the sake of that company.
Polysix  +   772d ago
am sorry you are so short sighted and don't wish to help improve gaming.
Kos-Mos  +   772d ago
Nintendo on the other hand is long sighted. Where should I start? News for you is that 3DS is battering the competition. And this gen with the Wii. Shall I go on?
