Nintendo has a very unique image in the eyes of the general public. They’ve done much to separate themselves from the norm from both a hardware and software perspective. Their franchises are highly valued in the industry and have a large, loyal crowd of fans. But despite their prestige, a lot of other gamers tend to have a negative view of the company. When they’re not complaining about the differences in the capabilities of competing hardware, they’re mocking the fans of these legendary franchises for supporting these, as they call them — “kiddy games” — even going as far as to sometimes call them “big babies” or some other similar insult.
This observation leaves one simple question — are Nintendo titles truly ‘kiddy’?
