CheatCC says - "I think the recent trailers for both Jurassic World and Star Wars Episode 7 have proven something we tend to lose sight of from time to time: never underestimate the value of nostalgia."
I've never bought a single thing out of nostalgia.
Me neither. Every time I buy a main Mario game I know I'm going to find the best platforming in it, never really have had a nostalgic feeling about them, even if I have been playing Mario games since the N64 title.
Recently I purchased the NES with R.O.B and SNES with Earthbound for $20 at a garage sale. That's nostalgia!!! Awesome day!!! Nintendo may have characters with the nostalgia factor, but the gameplay is always fresh. I think it's more of the track record of those nostalgia characters having high quality that is the secret weapon.
This is very true, I remember going back to a lot of games and telling myself, "yuck, how could I have liked this." Unlike Kalkano, I have purchased many things out of nostalgia.
Nintendoes use it as a weapon also.
There have been so many great games in the past so how could people not have nostalgia for them? Way better than most of the games this year at least. My games that I have nostalgia for: Super Mario World Donkey Kong Country Goof Troop Mario Paint The Legend of Zelda A Link To The Past Mario Kart 64 MediEvil Ape Escape The Legend of Dragoon Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 Spider-Man 1&2 PS1 Tony Hawk's Underground(First game I ever played online) Tony Hawk's Underground 2 True Crime Streets of LA Uncharted 2 I probably have a few more I just can't think of them. I grew up on the Super Nintendo even though I am 20 and by the time I started playing it the GameCube was close to releasing. I couldn't of imagined not growing up playing the SNES. Consoles in order of when I played them: SNES > N64 > PS1 > XB > GBC > GCN > GBA > PS2 > PSP > PS3 > PS4
