During Nintendo’s most recent shareholders meeting in July, Shigeru Miyamoto made a few comments about the games on display at E3.
The father of gaming speaks. So listen close, Sony and Microsoft. Anyway, its true, the gaming industry sure does have a long way to go. Like, is there even a PS1, XBOX, PS2, 360, PS3, PS4, XB1 exclusive, more (creatively) challenging, than even Mike Tyson's Punchout, on the NES ?? What will i do with all the PS4 sales ? khh
When someone is speaking you shouldn't be talking.
"the gaming industry 'has a long way to go'" I think Nintendo should first catch up to the rest of the players in the industry before it tries to comment on the state of the industry.
Maybe read the article before commenting. He isnt talking about hardware, hes talking about the fact there is limited creativity amongst game developers because the majority make games based on market trends rather than on something that sounds like a fun and interesting idea. Personally this is pretty much the reason i love Nintendo, you can say what you want about them rehashing the same old franchises but there is more creativity and originality in a new Mario game than there is in an entire gen of first person shooters. It is also the reason they are struggling saleswise because as a business if you dont cater to your core market you are going to struggle unless you bring in new gamers. I really hope they keep doing their own thing as the games i want to play are on Nintendo platforms.
New things? Haven't they been recycling the same franchise for over 20 years??
Ninty has more exclusives than both Sony and Microsoft combined. Troll harder
You know what games are multiplatform ? Grand Theft Auto, Metal Gear, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, etc, etc. For real, you can keep your exclusives. Nintendo has to make exclusives because third party doesn't wanna touch it with a stick, they have to fill the void.
"new" things LOL! why don't you start doing it yourself first?
I guess you mean this current generation, right? Because Sony had just as many exclusives on the last generation as Nintendo, probably even more. (Not necessarily better, though; I guess we're talking strictly about quantity here, not quality). I don't know whether to agree with you or not, lol. Care to elaborate?
That Wii music was sure creative and shitty to play. Come on, not even the most hardcore Ninty fan can defend that 1 out of 10 game, lol. Really, that game was a fing 1, he made that. Always trying to bait those casuals.
I dont think he was trying to bait the casuals. He had an idea, it sounded fun, it wasnt, everyone moved on.
Yep. The only pleasure anybody got out of that game(?) was watching the terrible, yet meme-tacular, E3 presentation for Wii Music with "Ravi Drums" http://youtu.be/kw_Bd-13YCk Nobody drums imaginary drums like Ravi Drums drums imaginary drums.
I love you nintendo and all but I must say respectfully get with the times, stop the region locks, and to cut this short damn you for that 3DS LL and not making a true next gen handheld jump and incorporatig a true second damn analog stick for it.
"true next gen"...I laughed so hard! You call what Sony and Microsoft have done with their latest consoles a 'true' leap into next gen, what, double the specs yet forget to create any games which you couldn't just as happily be playing on last gen consoles. You and me it appears have a very, very different understanding on what 'next gen' should refer... I think by your logic a P.C must be 15th gen (roughly).
Well to me a true next gen is when its the next generation of a device as in a totally new device with seperate naming, new tech, and built from the ground up, I dont know what the lack of games has to do with the definition of next gen when im speaking solely about devices. As for your comment on the PC gen I wouldnt doubt its that far. Lastly in my comment I never once mentioned sony or ms.
So many Nintendo haters on this site. Makes me shake my head. Yes they've made a lot of mistakes but that doesn't stop them from making amazing games for WiiU. And what do these fanboy arguments have to do with the article anyway? Go get a room if you're going to make some stupid comment about nintendo sucking or even making crap up about Sony and Microsoft.
I respect Mr. Miyamoto so much and about his view about the gaming, I completely agree with him. Primarily because the innovation never stops and there's more to achieve in the next years or even generations to come.
but dude isnt it kind of sad that no mario game since super mario 64 has had a more mature tone. It kind of seems like their stuff has been getting even kiddier if you ask a lot of gamers. currently the only good game for it is MK8.
In Sunshine Mario was framed for ruining an entire city. FLUDD more or less died by the end, but was brought back to "life". In Galaxy you learned how Rosalina was separated from her family but was able to take lost stars under her wing and become a guiding force in the Galaxy They do add touches of maturity here and there, but Nintendo innovates through gameplay and game design, not so much story.
I see what youre saying but thats not really what i meant. story tone yeah but think about the tone of the levels, the bowser levels in SM64 had a dark bleak tone that nintendo hasnt been able to reproduce since. they made it feel like if you didnt reach the end of the level and defeat bowser he was going to KILL the princess. Maybe it was the creepy music or something but yeah. havent seen games on the GC Wii or WiiU pull off that kinda mood in their gameplay/artstyle. another title that could pull off that eerie or bleak look in its levels is legend of zelda OoT and the panzer dragoon games on saturn.
lol no that is not sad. It is sad that you require the most iconic game character in history to break away from what makes him special to satisfy your own maturity complex. Not to mention there was no "mature tone" in Mario 64. You are a prime example of the reason why Miyamoto is making these statements. I suppose you don't watch Pixar movies either. Honestly nobody says you have to love the games, but disregarding a creative experience because you think you are too mature for it is ignorance.
You got that right. The maturity complex is a fad in a toy store trying to sell pc games it would seem. Why are you guys playing games for maturity anyway. There is one key word at work here. That word is game. Maturity is about life there are no games in life or maturity. It's like you guys are showing up to school expecting an orgy. You are misplaced at best and casual obsessive at worst. You might just be depressed really. Video games have and will always be toys.
"Even when there is opportunity for young developers to make something freely, they tend to make similar proposals". 2 things. 1. miyamoto needs to research the "indie" scene, these are small, new devs that operate freely with out the limitations or constraints of publishers and only after their product is designed do they look for a publisher and today its alot easier for indies to get their product out on consoles. 2. nintendo is a victim of limitations, they are walking a thin line while sony/micro out thinking outside the box. and this is why 3rd parties are hesitant of putting their product on nintendo's consoles.
1. Nintendo made the wiiU free for indie devs to work on. That's absolutely huge. The amount of indie teams making games for wiiU right is in the 100s. 2. NNintendo teams are masters of overcoming limitations by actually thinking outside the box. This is a terrible effort for cherry-picking. You literally said that nintendo is NOT doing what they actually ARE doing. I do insist you research both sides of your argument. Before responding to this
Sorry, but limitations are usually a good thing when it comes to creating something especially games. Limitations create innovative and new ideas.
Also, you have to remember that, 3rd party games, just do not sell good on the WI U . That is a fact! I would love to see NINTENDO develop some new FPS METROID games! I would run out buy a WI U just to play some new METROID FPS games !
These haters are depressing. Constructive criticism is always nice and can make a company better. Though just flat out hating a company because you have a bias towards another company is wrong.
So basically everything MICHAEL PACHTER has been saying about NINTENDO in the last year , now MYAMOTO is saying the same thing .
Well, we're pretty close to streaming a blur of 3rd party games onto our T.V. How is the Playstation going to survive? I'm sure Pachter will fill us in when the time comes..
After all these bloody years Nintendo admits that it's time to do new things. YES YES & YES. Love you Nintendo.
nintendo is behind the times nintendo fanboys just love mario and zelda rehashs over and over,nothing new and fresh just the same old stuff, a wannabe tablet console isnt innovative
