But I tough Nintendo only made kiddy rehashes... Why would you want that on your "true" consoles?... /s.

Come on, you're just being ridiculous here.

if I had a choice for my children to game on any system, I would choose Nintendo. they simply offer more family friendly games than the other systems. that said, daddy games on the real systems.

Shuhei Yoshida said this much, much better last year. The author of this editorial should learn that being a fanboy living in a bubble does not make for good writing, especially if you are trying to persuade people to your point of view.

Gaming does not NEED Nintendo to survive, but it is BETTER because Nintendo is around (same for Sony and Microsoft).

In my early years it was Nintendo/Sega, High School it shifted to PlayStation. I'd say at least PlayStation and Nintendo should stay in the gaming industry for their respective reasons; other companies (excluding MS) either dropped out entirely or went 3rd party, which isn't good for competition or innovation.

I will say though, if Sega ever decided to come back I would give them a chance, the Saturn/Dreamcast had certain games I would kill to play again.
