The Wii may have momentum Nintendo hasn't seen for a decade, but one fan has always felt like a winner.
Before the emergence of the "new" Nintendo, things were quite different in the world of gaming. Sure, the Game Boy had a stranglehold on the handheld market, fighting off all manner of competition, even many technically superior rivals. In the console market, Nintendo had been struggling.
The Nintendo 64 and Gamecube were both profitable for the company, but they lacked the mass market success that had made Nintendo a household name. Nintendo stayed true to their philosophy of making great and innovative games throughout those console generations, but they made some mistakes when it came to handling their image.
