Shigeru Miyamoto, speaking at Nintendo's Annual Shareholders Meeting last week, said the company "looked very unique" and received positive reactions thanks to its variety of games.
way to spin the lack of big franchise 3rd party games Miyamoto
I'll take indies over any "big franchise 3rd party games" everyday of the week. I'm going to go ahead and guess that you're not a PC gamer.
indies are better on ps4 than wii u anyway. wii u indies are just shovelware.
Why not both... On topic this is a flamebait headline.
the nintendo games really did stand out because they looked a generation behind the next gen titles in production value. production value isn't everything but we are onto a new generation and nintendo is still stuck in their old ways. the wii u is a waste for a core gamer but good for the fanatics. some people are content with playing a handful of good titles for years but thats not good enough for core and hardcore gamers. the big nintendo titles are 4 months then there will be a massive drought till summer and late next year. they also will be missing out on a lot of third party games i know the fanatical nintendo fans thinks nintendo had the best showing at e3 when nintendo didn't go on the big e3 stage because they had so little to show and their showings were lackluster when compared to a lot of next gen games. to each his own, but nintendo little internet show was short and the most talked about game at their show was splatoon. it doesn't look like a bad game but it looks like a game that would interest most core gamer for two tries and then forget about it. i don't know how anyone would think nintendo had the best showing at e3. if anyone thinks that then they are silly. they weren't at e3 and intends little internet fanboy show lasted about 40 minutes where they showed about 8 games with probably 3 new games the public didn't know about.
You can downplay anything. Nintendo is working simplistic mascot games that aren't pushing the boundary forward.
way to not read the actual question Miyamoto was asked
It's not like Miyamoto's wrong. Nintendo games generally have greater presence and staying power than third party AAA.
Wasn't that impressed by most third party games really at e3.. I'll happily stick with my wii u for fun games
There weren't even that many shooters
Not that many shooters? Destiny, The Division, Evolved, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Rainbow Six Seige, Battlefield Hard Line, Far Cry 4, Planetside 2, Metro: Redux and The Order: 1886. I assure you there were a lot of shooters shown at E3 this year.
You know what wasn't spin, the fact that Nintendo showed all exclusives, and all those exclusives featured gameplay. It was really refreshing to see a return to arcade like games. Games that focus on gameplay and not have to resort to blood, gore, dudebros and terrorists. Just straight up arcade action.
Well, ya, but so did No Mans Sky Little bigPlanet 3 Forza Horizon 2 and every indie there so it doesnt say much
Look at all the idiot Nintendo fanboys out to "play".
Why do you have to call people idiots? Makes you sound like a jerk, and a troll. Maybe that's what you are.
Says the guy with LUCARIO as his avatar! smh so much ignorance and arrogance.
It doesn't say much but it doesn't mean it's not true. The Nintendo games did stand out just like No Man's Sky or LBP3 did.
There were plenty of good games on all platforms. Which is something that some people cant accept.
Thats sissy talk Mr moto.
Well, Mario kills tons of enemies, pokemon fight battle after battle just cause one kid wants to be champion, the characters of Nintendo fight in SSB, if you add add blood to the formula, the games would be very violent. So yeah their games are very fun, but safe, I don't know. I would like to see what Nintendo could acomplish if they really wanted to make a violent game, but I prefer the way they are now.
Eternal Darkness Geist Disaster Ay of Crisis
2 of those games were published by Nintendo, not developed by them. Eternal Darkness was developed by Silicon Knights. Disaster was developed by Monolith Soft.
monolith is owned by nintendo. thats like saying uncharted is not a sony game.
Monolith developed games on PS2. Saying Monolith is Nintendo is like saying Mass Effect 1 and 2 were a Microsoft Game. Uncharted is a Naughty Dog game, exclusively on a Sony console. Developers are not the same as Publishers. Sony didn't develop Uncharted, same as Microsoft didn't develop Halo. When the OP says that he wishes to see Nintendo develop "violent games" he's talking about the Nintendo's core team.
@Dannycr By your logic. Uncharted is not developed by Sony Nintendo owned Monolith Soft since 2007. It doesn't matter who in Nintendo develops it. If Nintendo funded and Published it. It a Nintendo game. Actually it doesn't matter. Miyamoto and many of Nintendo executives keep tabs on all of their devs works. Example Bayonetta 2 devs said Nintendo input improved the game. Monolith Soft co-developed on Zelda Skyward Sword and Animal Crossing. Nintendo producers trains their devs to be on par with Nintendo EAD. No you thanks the developers and publishers. Publishers are the one who approve the game design and offers the funded. Example Nintendo funded Bayonetta 2. When you beat a game.
Yes, Uncharted is not developed by Sony. It was developed by Naughty Dog on a Sony console. It does matter who in Nintendo develops the game. Different studios have different strenghts, techniques and knowledge but more importantly, you are seriously undermining a developer of a game by calling it a "Nintendo, Microsoft or Sony" game If I thank anyone for Uncharted or Last Of Us I thank Naughty Dog, If i thank anyone for Eternal Darkness I thank Silicon Knights, If I thank anyone for Battlefield I thank DICE not EA, etc, etc, etc.
@Danntcr Dude just stop replying, if he can't understand what is a DEVELOPER and a PUBLISHER, you are wasting your time here mate.
@Dannycr Violent games are not Nintendo style, I prefer what they do. That's why they have or sign studios to make those games.
I like you Miyamoto, but I only saw a COUPLE of bloody shooters.
Give the other shooters time; most of them haven't shown gameplay, but you will likely see blood in the majority of them, if not guts and all manner of horrible bodily injuries.
I agree with what Miyamoto said.. Most games shown centered around death!
Mario has you kill a ton of enemies & if you don't they kill you, even Ninty games contain death in abundance, maybe not gory games, but definitely games heavily including death.
Dude 90% of games involve death unless your playing Flower or something.
There's more genre than shooting, too bad Nintendo doesn't know that cause they only have Mario Genre for almost 2 decades. talk about being "playing children's game" for 2 decades. That's so boring.
I gotta agree with him. Nintendo had a surprisingly good showing (IMO). I haven't owned a Nintendo system since the SNES but the WiiU has some tempting software coming... I bought my PS4 day one and I don't regret it because I know games are coming...after 2015 apparently.
He's talking about their E3 show, but it didn't even happen. Most people didn't watch Nintendo's private little stream, they only saw the actual live E3 conferences. Miyamoto's saying Nintendo stood out from the other conferences, but not only did Nintendo showcase the same old junk, but they didn't even have a conference at all!
Not trying to sound rude, but you're very uninformed. Nintendo Digital Event's reception was overwhelming.
You didn't pay attention if you think that Nintendo's conference wasn't watched, let alone covered, by millions of viewers, if not billions. Both press and gamers alike. Go look on Youtube. Go look on gaming news sites, including this one. Then take your plate of crow, sit in your corner, and eat it with at least some semblance of humility.
"but they didn't even have a conference at all!" Good thing they didn't. The Nintendo Treehouse format is perfect. MS and Sony are using too many gimmicks on stage and talk about business far too much. No one cares about those business people that walk up stage. Seriously.
Good, it meant less bullshit from a business man on stage and all the gameplay we got from this year. This year alone, Nintendo has shown more gameplay at E3 than M$ and Sony have combined for the last FIVE.
Well, like Miyamoto said, my attention went to those games that were different from your tipical Shooters, problem is those games werent exactly their franchises or exclusive to their console.
I guess splatoon is not a shooter because they shoot paint(?) Again, the conferences don't reflect what was in the showfloor. Microsoft and Sony both showed a lot of "not shooters" in their booths and aside from them, there were a lot of developers with "not shooter" games as well. If you based your opinion on the conferences alone, then he may be right, although Microsoft did show other types of games, however, Miyamoto said that in a board meeting...so OBVIOUSLY he's going to sing Nintendo's praises.
Miyamoto actually responded to many questions, hence when he's talking about "shooting" games he refers to the unoriginality of some game studios, many sequels, many "safe games with no risks". Even if they are not shooters, they lack originality. I disagree however, but he has got a point there.
In that sense, it is definitely true, but he should not undermine the efforts made by other studios to try and add new elements to the shooting genre, but he was probably talking about Call Of Duty which I would definitely agree.
He knows he can't annoy any 'bloody shooter' devs, because none of them want to put their games on the Wii U. Still, probably not doing them any favours in the relationships department.
Well, if we keep buying the bloody shooters, devs/publishers will keep releasing the bloody shooters .
