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

Benjaminkno1623d ago

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.

LKHGFDSA1622d ago

indies are better on ps4 than wii u anyway.
wii u indies are just shovelware.

Concertoine1622d ago (Edited 1622d ago )

Why not both...

On topic this is a flamebait headline.

Cindy-rella1622d ago (Edited 1622d ago )

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

randomass1711622d ago

It's not like Miyamoto's wrong. Nintendo games generally have greater presence and staying power than third party AAA.

Mikito111622d ago

Wasn't that impressed by most third party games really at e3.. I'll happily stick with my wii u for fun games

dcj05241622d ago

There weren't even that many shooters

ExiledBlitz1622d ago

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.

maniacmayhem1622d ago (Edited 1622d ago )

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

Zero-One1623d ago

Look at all the idiot Nintendo fanboys out to "play".

MNGamer-N1622d ago

Why do you have to call people idiots? Makes you sound like a jerk, and a troll. Maybe that's what you are.

thehobbyist1622d ago

Says the guy with LUCARIO as his avatar! smh so much ignorance and arrogance.

coltlokk1622d ago

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.

MasterCornholio1622d ago

There were plenty of good games on all platforms. Which is something that some people cant accept.

Megaplaynate1623d ago

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.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1622d ago

Eternal Darkness
Disaster Ay of Crisis

Dannycr1622d ago

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.

thegent1622d ago

monolith is owned by nintendo. thats like saying uncharted is not a sony game.

Dannycr1622d ago (Edited 1622d ago )

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.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1622d ago (Edited 1622d ago )

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.

Dannycr1622d ago (Edited 1622d ago )

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.

Etseix1622d ago

Dude just stop replying, if he can't understand what is a DEVELOPER and a PUBLISHER, you are wasting your time here mate.

Metallox1622d ago

@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.

wonderfulmonkeyman1622d ago

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.
