If Nintendo really wants to encourage more M-rated games on the Switch, one good way to make it happen would be for Nintendo to make those games itself.
Are we still under the assumption that a game has to be rated M to be "mature?" Literally that's the case, but there are various games without that rating that reach vast amounts of maturity.
Agreed. I could list various Tales games that hit some pretty mature, if not outright deep, notes in their stories, for instance, and most of those are rated T or lower. Judging by labels or surface content is the one sure-fire way to misjudge a game. As does not giving a console's full library a twice-over to see what they might have missed. Even the Wii had games like Madworld, which was definitely not a family-friendly title.
A game like To The Moon is more mature than any mature rated game out there. I think the obsession with mature rated games really shows the immaturity of gamers.
Why can't you just enjoy the games it has? Why does everything HAS to be RATED M. Are you that sick in the head to enjoy something creative and fun?
Same reason every movie and TV show needs to be dark, gritty, and have mute colors. People think it's edgy and cool when really it takes more away than it does add and it's dry and boring because it's been done to death. Give me something artistically creative and work "mature" themes into the narrative. Just because there are blood and buts everywhere doesn't mean it can't be mature. Doom is less than a month away and I'm sure because it's a Nintendo console we will get dozens of articles complaining about how Doom is inappropriate for the console like how Manhunt 2 and Mad World got pulled from shelves on the Wii because of how "Mature" they were. The simple answer is Nintendo can do good in haters eyes. Haters complain something is missing, Nintendo provides, haters refuse to buy then complain that something is missing. Look at Fatal Frame 5, people begged and begged for it to be released in the west. It was and then sold terribly. People beg for more Metroid but Metroid never gets the best sales numbers and Nintendo then takes years to make another one and the people who didn't buy it ask why it never gets made sooner. Expecting a new Star Fox after the abysmal sales of Star Fox Zero? We will probably be lucky to hear the name again outside of Smash. What a new Kid Icarus? Didn't sell well hence why there isn't a sequel. COD fans complaining about no Switch release...they wouldn't even think about buying it on Switch to begin with because they are used to playing it with their friends on other systems.
cause I'm an adult and playing rated M games proves how mature I am. /s
because the console is 7 months old? Give it some time.. plenty are coming
Because it's a family/kid friendly console.
Because it has only been out for 7 months...
I would argue that games like Fifa, Skyrim, Doom, LA Noire, Wolfenstein, Xenoblade are aimed at more matured audience. Unless of course the "M" rating that you are referring to is about more boobs and co*ks.
There nothing Mature about FIFA. Mature isn't about age. It about how one act or grown.
Well it just came out this year. Also don't forget it will be getting an LA Noire port. A pretty mature Rockstar game. That's a step in the right direction.
Nintendo make 'Fun' games. The only console company really doing that. They have that corner of the market nailed. Now they just need to understand the concept of 'Value for money' and they would be unstoppable,imho. I'd be playing one right now, if it wouldn't cost be the price of an XB1X to get started!
It's an Ironic subject. Kids like violent games these days. All the COD crowd is about as far from "mature" as you can get. Tea bagging each other and swearing down the mic
So true. I've had youngsters threaten me online. So in just a few years when they are able to travel by themselves, I'll probably have to watch out.
More mature content will come. They just got Doom. I do think Nintendo should make a remake or sequel to Eternal Darkness.
Fuck mature, stop censoring ur fucking games Nintendo nothing but fucking prudes.
Never have I ever gone to the store to purchase a game and look at the rating and decided not to buy it because othe rating. What a weird way of looking at things. The switch is selling well, so for him to say their image won’t change, I think Nintendo has made it clear that they don’t care what people think about their image. If the console sold only Pokémon games, and it sold well, who’s complaining? Their stocks are higher than Sony right now so that seven out of 180 available games that Are mature doesn’t seem to be stopping them for making money. If no one has actually played the system itself they cannot fully understand why it appeals to who it appeals to. It doesn’t matter if the game is rated M or not.

What is up with this obsession with mature rated games? Most mature rated games aren't mature in their subject matter anyway. Who gives a fuck about the rating on the game, just have fun. Playing a game that has a mature rating doesn't make you a mature person, playing a mature rated game because it's mature rated make you pretty immature.
Hey Capcom...Resident Evil 7 would be nice !! Hey Rockstar... GTA 5 would be nice !! Hey Activison................fine. ..... I guess bring COD
