*Are Nintendo franchises Only Alive because of Nostalgia?

3-4-51040d ago

uhhh, Some of the most fun gaming I've had in the past 2-3 years has been on 3DS & Wii U.

* Nintendo offers a certain quality nobody else except maybe Blizzard can compete with.

Wii U's only real negative is that you can't play games like Order 1886, or NBA 2k15, or WWE or Destiny,Halo, Call of duty.

Aside from that...for pure games that are fun, Nintendo almost always brings their A game.

Haters gonna hate though.

It's easy to make quality games from 2001. It would take nintendo 20 years to make Skyrim.

No imo 3d world is super fun and proves Mario has a reason to be here .

The real question is why is Kirby around but not metroid ( samus )

I ask this all the time except,

They made Donkey kong Tropical Freeze instead of a new Metroid?!

Big Reveal!!!

You get to play as Cranky Kong!!!!

Well, there is a certain truth to that statement if you ask me, though the games are fun.

No. He is alive because his games are great. As well as most Nintendo games.
Or maybe because Mario is one of the few remaining options for people who want to play good 3D platformers.

The writer says "we know the mario formula is good" but what formula is that? being a good game?. The difference between every 3D mario is far greater than the difference between almost any other franchise.

Those magic mushrooms are adding years onto his life.
