I was among the Nintendo fans who felt betrayed by their E3 conference. It seemed that they had turned their back on me, and right then and there I was ready to return the favor.

I realize that a lot of the decisions the company has made are to appease the casual audience (the largest segment of Wii buyers). But this article had an interesting point: E3 is currently a shell of its former glory, so why does Nintendo have to focus so much effort on it?

Since the beginning, Nintendo has told us that the Wii was meant for a different audience. That it would be gamers' second console. Now I see that it does a damn good job of that. It doesn't come anywhere close to replacing my PS3, but it offers a lot of new and exciting experiences.

Now, I wouldn't call Nintendo the winner of E3- the truth is that they lost by forfeit. But at this point I think it's inevitable that Nintendo will be the winner of this generation.
