Calling Nintendo the Disney of videogames is a cliché at this point, and the comparison is usually flung about as a criticism. However, with a game like Pikmin 3 that comparison feels right in the best possible sense. At their best, Nintendo makes games with universal appeal that are artfully crafted to be simple enough for children to grasp, yet complex enough to reward older gamers through deeper play (or maybe it’s the other way around). At Disney’s best, that’s the experience they offer as well and as cynical as folks like to be about the two legendary companies, when they are on their game the results can only be described as magical. Pikmin 3 is one of these experiences.
