Nintendo is gone. Well, not gone as in vanished or destroyed entirely, but gone as in changed – transformed.
Ooh, this is gonna have a fun comment section.
We are just going to prove those clowns wrong, and then they are just going to preach the same sh!t on the next bait article. 7_7
Nintendo has continued to put out impressive first party games of the absolute highest quality. It's not their fault that their casual sensation has drawn 3rd party shovelware like honey draws flies.
"We are just going to prove those clowns wrong, and then they are just going to preach the same sh!t on the next bait article. 7_7 " Of course. You have to understand that nothing ever gets 'proven' around here, because to prove something to someone requires communication, and communication requires common ground. The point has been reached where there is almost no common ground on this issue.
Nintendo's main problem is they aren't making any new IP's. The games that have come out are sequels or remakes in previous franchises.
"The point has been reached where there is almost no common ground on this issue." The best you can do is justify your opinion and come to an understanding with one individual. This requires conceding a point to them, as people are more likely to agree after you agree with them. Make the point trivial. However, for people who love trolling and flamebait these articles are goldmines. I suggest a point card. Anger ape007/leon - 10 points Insult someone for thinking nintendo started with n64 or starting video games at ps1 - 5 points (stacks with ape007) Worry HD gamer by saying their business model is unsustainable and the future will be entirely 2d/minigame titles regardless of the truth of this statement - 30 points if they blame nintendo for killing gaming Make fun of HD gamer for not knowing college aged women love the wii, implying they are eunuchs - 10 points Mock HD gamer for not knowing anything about modern gfx cards/technology/programming - 10 points Make infuriating comparisons between failed gaming systems like the 3dO/jaguar/neogeo and PS3 - 10 points Imply HD gamer is in love with nathan drake - 50 points Make a sarcastic comment about how advanced the cell is and get agrees - 15 points Accurately describe how video games based on violence, sex, or bad sexual jokes are marketed to teenagers - 5 points Bait a post from HD gamer where they actually seem on the verge of tears - 100 points if you draw this out Add your own for fun!
"Nintendo's main problem is they aren't making any new IP's. The games that have come out are sequels or remakes in previous franchises." This is a valid concern, although to be fair it applies more to Nintendo of America than, say, Nintendo of Japan. Over there, they do their best to encourage stuff like Another Code R, Captain Rainbow, Disaster, or Zangeki no Reginleiv. "I suggest a point card." Man, that reminds me of the days when gametheory used to post lengthy rants about how he wanted to have me killed for not caring enough about HD. I miss him.
"Imply HD gamer is in love with nathan drake - 50 points" "Make fun of HD gamer for not knowing college aged women love the wii, implying they are eunuchs - 10 points" "Accurately describe how video games based on violence, sex, or bad sexual jokes are marketed to teenagers - 5 points" I am ashamed to say I have collected 65 points. 7_7 @Mahr: I know, but being a broken record isn't my idea of fun. Normally it wouldn't bother me, but when I'm repeating it to the same person it makes me feel like I'm wasting my time.
While your 65 points are impressive, Mahr not only lead a HD gamer to tears for 100 points, he received death threats in the same post. That is at least 200 points and nomination for a lifetime achievement award. With the gushing for uncharted my girlfriend and I call orgasms "nathan draking." She ruined the couch my first playthrough. If getting points isn't fun I don't know what is. :)
I once had some punk ass PM me: Called me a C*** S***** threatened to kill me told me to report him (I didn't, I'm no snitch lol) All because I was disagreeing with a B*** S*** article just like this one. I still have that message actually LoL. I can send it to any one who wants to read it. Good times. I don't think he's a member any more. Oh Well. Oh yeah, and there was this other time when both me AND EvilTwin were talking to some pion trying to convince him that dev costs for Wii were less than the dev costs for HD games. But he was having none of it. His name is..well it doesn't matter what his name is..But he was a moron and surprisingly had more bubbles than Mahr ; ) funny how that works.
you realize you guys come off just as bad as the ps3 & 360 fanboys, right?
It should read 'Hello Nintendo,' seeing as nintendo have actually re-invented the games industry and brought it to a wider audience. Strange that the writer goes on a nostalgia trip, making out Nintendo has changed... If you love the oldskool that much, there is the virtual console! Go and download a load of old games and play, anything to stop you posting this nonsense.
That doesn't make one sh!t of sense. Do you see us going on articles (that aren't posted on the Wii section) posting things like "it sales only cause it's Halo", "RRoD FTW", "360 = good heater for winter", "lol another GAY-LO game", "PS3 is just a Blu-ray player". All most of us do is defend, not go on raids in the PS3 and 360 section. Or is that what you want? Seriously, finding an article where a Wii defender/fanboy resorts to name calling will be a hard task. On the other hand, you say the word and I'll find you like ten articles where someone is called "Bot" in the PS3 or 360 section. Comparing us to them is a joke, I hope you know that Hat. 7_7
Actually it makes complete sense. In your rush to come defend the wii you failed to notice that there is hardly anyone in the this article that is making fun of the wii. You guys talk about having a discussion but you make it clear in your first post that you're just going to prove these "clowns" wrong. You may not go into other sections and start wars but you and other users here act like bullies to people.
'you realize you guys come off just as bad as the ps3 & 360 fanboys, right?' No they're don't, the ps3 and 360 fanboys act way more out of hand then this. It's as 'zoidsraven' said, they most likely defend their section. You must understand, back in 2009 (before I had the balls to join N4G), hate and trolling in the Wii section was at a all time high. Try to understand that some of the people here were probably treated like s*** just for owning a Wii (by this site's ps3 and 360 owners), so don't be too shacked if they act..... intense.
Who cares what fanboys say! Its there loss if they miss out some of the best games out this gen...
"You may not go into other sections and start wars but you and other users here act like bullies to people." If I have ever bullied you, or if you believe I have ever bullied you, I apologize. However, if you believe that because I can laugh about someone who said that everyone who disagreed with him needed to be put in concentration camps (seriously), then I am therefore just as bad as him -- well, if you believe that, you are wrong. If my saying so hurts your feelings, I am truly sorry -- but you are still wrong. You are just as wrong as those people were who used to say that calling out racism was a form of racism itself. "In your rush to come defend the wii you failed to notice that there is hardly anyone in the this article that is making fun of the wii" Right, hardly anyone -- except for, y'know, the entirety of the article itself in question, which is itself emblematic of the greater overall debate on the issue. Although that's really not an entirely accurate assessment, because the article isn't 'making fun' of anything per se, as that would imply going about things with a sense of humor, whereas the article is more "Nintendo, you've totally changed! It used to be all about the music!" and is dead serious about it. "His name is..well it doesn't matter what his name is..But he was a moron and surprisingly had more bubbles than Mahr" What? Someone had more bubbles than me? Who are they? Tell me, so I may destroy them! In case you can't tell, 1.13, that's a joke on my part. I honestly don't want to destroy anybody.
hatch - didn't you once make a crack that your wii had no dust on it because you cleaned your apartment? And then tried to act like you just made a factual statement? There's at least one article like this a day in this section. Usually they include posts saying: -nintendo makes games for soccer moms, kids, and fatties -wii is last gen and only uninformed morons buy it -direct implications casual games are for morons and or gamers are retards -this game should come to a real system like 360 or ps3 -there are no good wii games in posts where it has no relevance or bearing despite posts mentioned above saying every good wii exclusive should go HD (Epic Mickey, NMH2, NBA Jam, TvC, RS2) -no one buys wii games/this wii game tanked despite any evidence showing it made a profit, sold well, or the wii has the highest attach rate of any console -nintendo games have tired old gameplay mechanics -nintendo games suck now -people saying no one plays their wii despite everyone here clearly saying they do and responding to them -a crossposted artcle about games that are not even on the wii Go replace nintendo with sony and wii with ps3 and post this in that section. Go criticize uncharted 2 first chance you get. Watch your bubbles die. I once made a sarcastic comment that the cell was so fast it could see through time in the ps3 section. I got agrees. There's no time to rip on people elsewhere for bashing on the wii, there's multiple articles like this daily posted here.
oobob, here's 2 examples i found from my comment history. "38 days 11 hours ago Why do ps3 fanboys get so uppity when it comes to the exclusives. Guess what, i don't own a 360, i own a ps3 and i wanna say this. Infamous is overrated I'm more excited for Dantes Inferno than i am for GOW3 Uncharted 2 is awesome but it was the exact same gameplay that we saw in the original Uncharted. Batman: Arkham Asylum is a better action game than Uncharted 2 is. Bayonetta is an awesome game, and that's based on the full game, not the demo. I have the import" "36 days 3 hours ago I don't understand why some ps3 fanboys have such a hard time taking this game seriously. It has good graphics, great music, great gameplay and a great story. I love how people make fun of bayonetta like shes this worthless character yet these are the same people who are in love with kratos. As much as i enjoy the GOW series (trust me, i love the games), Kratos is such a one dimensional annoying character. It's just, "RAWRRR, im gonna scream and kill everything because the gods owe me" Ok kratos, we get it.... Also, i love how people bash bayonetta for being too sex oriented but these are the same people that brag about kratos have a 3some mini game. Huh? Point being, SOME sony fanboys are cry babies and hypocrites. I'm gonna enjoy bayonetta & gow3."
Wrong, Hat. It still doesn't make sense. Defend? I was only talk about people bashing the Wii, no where in my posts you would find me Wii defending on this article. So no, Hat. I was not in a "rush" to defend the Wii. I was only speaking from actual experience. And don't (for one second) think I only Wii defend, my distaste for fanboyism and "console hate" goes far beyond that of N4G. Bully? You see Hat, that's why people think you're a fanboy. How is what I said I am (a defender) have any relation to a bully? Who is more olf a bully, the attacker or the defender? If this is a hard question for you then there is no point in continuing this argument, if acknowledge what I just said is true and you also want to address some of my other points. Take it to pms. You will not be blocked unless you go out of line (like baum did). 7_7
"Nintendo was losing touch with what gamers wanted" Yes follow the hord that actually brought them into their own doom...well almost. Recheck N64 and the GCN days. Great support from the gamers right? LOL. Nintendo has done enough to please their usual fanbase. Other people are just whining for the sake of it. And with the upcoming titles im not really seeing how they lost touch at all. "The irony of this is, of course, that Nintendo was the company that started the arms race in the first place. They were the ones that designed the SNES to display 32,768 colors, compared to the Genesis’s 512. And they were the ones that created the Super FX co-processor – a graphics chip (released during the 16-bit era) that allowed for never-before-seen 3D visuals on a home console." Actually Nintendo usually had the lower specs. They used Add-ons to beef up their hardware( like the FX-chip inside some games) Eventually other consoles did that stuff out of the box. "And so, yes, Nintendo is gone. Gone, but not forgotten. The company’s innovations and brilliance during the 80s and 90s " Lets not show him what the first NES package art looked like...lets just hint out there was a mama, a dada and a child playing some Nintendo game. This guy is delusional =D.
Have you noticed a trend. N64 kids who really didn't grow up In the epicness of the nes or snes are the ones complaining the most. Also notice that the n64 was the only console where they pushed 3d onto the gamer. Nintendo does not do this much any more. That was the only gen where they completely ignored their past and tried to create stuff for younger gamers because surely mario64 was pale in comparison to Mario 3. This was the gen when colecting was more important than skill. I'm glad that nintendo is almost dead. I hope those gamers die off also. Sorry to be so harsh yet those games sucked. They sucked so bad that every one left. Now that nintendo is back on track making stuff for it's true fans it is doing fine yet nintendo has changed. Oh that is right the n64 did not have a zapped, power pad or 2d games. Now that those things are back nintendo has changed. Guys like this remind me of pc gamers that hated the nes. They even have the same arguements. So yeah nintendo did change back into nintendo. You can have your Mario sunshine Mario party crap. Their motion control games are classic nintendo all day. Every thing is actually back to normal. And gimicks are only features with no talent behind them. People are only loyal to fun.
Nintendo is back to their old selves finally. N64 was good but I never looked forward to playing anything on that system besides the WCW wrestling games (those are the best wrestling games ever created, back when Yukes was good) but compared to NES and SNES the 64 was super lame. They started coming back with the gamecube but no third party support furthered the problem of getting 1 or 2 great games every year and a half. Now they release great first party titles but are victim to tons of shovelware due to popularity but as far as I am concerned Nintendo has returned to the form that made them great back in the days. Most people who complain are to young to remember NES and SNES. Those 2 systems are past forms of what the wii is, a great system for diehards but due to popularity got tons of shovelware. Nintendo is back to great form with the Wii and people who grew up with N64 only should keep their mouths shut cause you guys don't know SH!T.
KornBeater: Wrestling games on the 64 were the peak of wrestling games, but they weren't made by Yukes, it was made by AKI (good times). This guy has to be about 17-19 yrs old. Anyone can see the Wii is the NES reincarnate. This guy says farewell Nintendo, Nintendo should probably say "good riddance" to this guy.
Agreed, this guy is completely delusional. I get new punchout after over a decade and he's crying that nintendo has changed. Good, I missed 'em. And the wii even has new bubble bobble, contra, castlevania, gradius, old style final fantasy VI followup, muramasa, 2d mario and 2d wario. mario kart returned to the SNES style. This is what console gaming was during the NES and SNES era. And he's crying because one of three systems is giving old gamers what they want? Hardcore gamers are again proving that narcissism isn't only for teenagers.
I think you guys are getting ahead of yourselves. The wii has some great games but it's nowhere near the software library greatness that the nes & snes has.
Actually, they are almost the same. I mean a punch-Out for the Wii, that just screams out attention for Nintendo's classic fans. And how would you know? Is the Wii's lifespan over? No, then you must wait before stating something like that. Oh, and please explain yourself a little better next time.
Ok So me saying the software library for the wii isn't as good as the snes or nes is a problem because the consoles life isn't over. However, it's ok for people to say it's better? How can I explain it better? I don't the think the software library for the wii holds a candle to that of the nes or snes. It's easy to understand.
I wasn't supporting what anyone else had said, I'm just saying that the Wii is almost the same. Just because I reply to you, doesn't mean I think everyone else is right. You didn't explain why you thought the wii's games wasn't as good as the SNES/NES games. Details was lacking in your post. Simple.
Ok, you weren't agreeing with anyone but yet you see fit to call me out and no one else. That makes sense. Here's the answer you want. Lets see. All these games that you guys love and make you say that nintendo has gone back to it's roots are games that mimic titles from the nes and snes. More often than not when talking about nintendo titles, the original games are wholly considered better than the later titles. That's why I think the nes and snes software library is much better than the Wii's. First party efforts and especially third party.
Well you was the last to post, of course you'd get the royal treatment. ;) ............. So, because I pick one guy out of 6-7 guys to reply to, I should have replied to the others/? That smart. :/ There, that's all I asked for. Some details, the tantrum/fit wasn't necessary.
what a joke. nintendo didnt really changed its the people who grew up with nintendo change. so the motion controller not a innovation? weird cuz i thought it was. well over the years nintendo did lose developers and gamers but that about all. i dont see how they are losing touch.
It's weird. Some people say "Nintendo has changed too much," and others say "they haven't changed at all and are still releasing the same types of games." The one thing that gets me from the article is this: "But make no mistake, the company that you grew to love and support during the 80s and 90s is no more, replaced by an impostor that doesn’t have your best interest as a gamer in mind." Best interest? Does anyone think Microsoft had our best interests in mind when they rushed a console to market that broke down so regularly? Does anyone think Sony had our best interests in mind when they launched the PS3 at $600? These are businesses, folks. Why people think they're altruistic entities made of sunshine and candy is beyond me.
Good grief, I must have missed that part when I read through -- he *seriously* said that part about best interests? Yeah, like when the NES introduced region locking to consoles, they did that to protect us from playing games with Japanese text in them. If we could play imports on our systems, madness and death would surely ensue. Thanks, 80s Nintendo!
i'm sure people will say, "HA! I knew you were a ps3 fanboy!" for this comment but sony WAS looking out for gamers (in a sense) with the launch of the ps3 price at $600. Yes it's an outrageous price and I didn't buy one, (I was waiting in line for a wii) but sony was selling the system at a loss. The system cost $700something to manufacture when it first came out. As for microsoft, the RROD is laughable and the reason I won't buy a 360.
Sony was looking out for themselves when they charged 600 bucks for the PS3, not the gamer. Sony thought they would get the same sales they got for the ps2 on the ps3 (that's the only reason they worked so hard on the ps3) and boy did it backfire. Sony is a company, they want our money like evey other company out there does.
When i was a kid and i had a N64 i was the biggest Nintendo fanboy. Games like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, ISS 64, Legend Of Zelda, F Zero X, Mario Kart and 64 etc etc. Now compare those games that were made over 10 years ago to Wii game. Nintendo are dead to me.
Name me one other developer who's put out as many games rated over 85% this generation as Nintendo has. Across the Wii and DS Nintendo and their developers have put out: Super Mario Galaxy Twilight Princess Super Smash Bros. Brawl Metroid Prime Trilogy Metroid Prime 3: Corruption New Super Mario Bros. Punch Out!! Super Paper Mario Flipnote Studio Mario Kart DS Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hour Glass Advanced Wars: Duel Strike New Super Mario Bros. The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Kirby Canvas Curse Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time Animal Crossing: Wild World Advanced Wars: Days of Ruin Metroid Prime Hunters Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Super Mario 64 DS Plus this year Nintendo is putting out numerous titles that are sure to do well. If by releasing games like Wii Sports and Wii Fit Nintendo's able to keep the industry healthy and fund all the aforementioned great games, who cares? Nintendo hasn't changed, they're putting as much (or more) quality titles out this generation than ever before. The Wii is being jerked around by 3rd parties, but that's nothing new for a Nintendo console.
What a pathetic article. xD Kinda sad, really.
i think its more like the harcorez! who only play halo and fps with blood and gore are dead to nintendo, the author might as well say goodbye to Sony and MS once natal and the wand come lol
I agree with you with the M$ part of your post, cuz before the "motion bandwagon" I hated the wii as much as the x360 crew did, now that everyone is jumping into this "new trend", my hate for the wii is gone and now I focus on those Hypocrites that say "natal is da more innovativez" and forget that Nintendo Created the Motion-Control Trend You probably think I'm an Hypocrite too cuz of the Wand, but no I'll not accept the Wand, maybe if Sony put an Analogue Stick and Show that it can be enjoyable and NECESSARY for Gaming Also I disagree with what you said about teh harcorez, I'm not a Hardcore Gamer, I'm against the Over-saturated market of FPS but I really love this Gen and the Amazing Games, is not a "Hardcore thing" to believe that Gaming is more than Mario Luigi Bowser Peach Wario - Waluigi Teh 578902... Pokemons Captain Falcon Zelda Link Ganondorf Kirby Pikmins DK and so on... What I'm saying is that is good to play those games, but every gen, every Console is starting to feel like the games are more like slightly Updated Graphics than anything, I was shocked when I saw the Jump from SSB to SSBM but never happened when I saw SSBB and the same goes with Mario Kart - Mario Kart Double Dash - Mario Kart wii , so that can get you a CLUE of what I want to see from Nintendo
Why would you hate on a video game console to begin with? It seems pointless to me.
" What I'm saying is that is good to play those games, but every gen, every Console is starting to feel like the games are more like slightly Updated Graphics than anything, " And yet people are dancing when the words FF-7 remake comes along... The list you mentioned, its not the characters making it "hardcore", rather the gameplay that usually sticks to its own roots. How is that not "hardcore". And lets be honest everyone has his own version of what hardcore is.

my only turn off of wii was that it wasnt hd. now if nintendo are smart tey will allow for current games to be upscaled with AA on the next wii etf
It's not like people buy the Wii for killing games. People grew up like most of us. We want Violence!
Say that to my 4 year old and their 6 & 10 year old cousin. All they want to play is Mario Mario Mario .Kart Smash brothers or Wii sports. Nintendo did not change .. we just grew up and some people are just too stupid to realize this. Man!!! .. How many of these articles are we going to endure.
Nintendo just moved with the times. They tried to appeal the the 'hardcore' gamers, as they class themselves, but really they're still the same company. Even back in the Sega v Nintendo days, SNES was still seen at the childs console while the Mega Drive seemed to be aimed at the much older audiance. Change is the wrong world really, I'd say they evolved.
Nintendo has been making the same type of games since the 80s. Saying they abandoned the "hardcore" is ridiculous. Just because they make games such as Wii Fit and Wii Sports doesn't mean they went all "casual" (Remember the Power Pad for the NES? Or Super Scope 6 for the SNES?). Nintendo released as many "hardcore" games for the Wii in the first 3 years as they did for the GC and N64 in its first 3 years. People, please get your facts straight.
i think they started going downhill when they lost Rare
for so many reasons your comment made me laugh
"i think they started going downhill when they lost Rare" I think Rare started going downhill when nintendo sold rare. Mainly because rare were losing people. They are not the same company as they were in the SNES days.
people have to remember that Nintendo had to change as they was in a lot of trouble after the N64, and GC, I mean at least you still see mario and Zelda games, and 3rd party dev's have tried to inject mature games, so no Nintendo has not completely abandoned the hardcore gamer, they just cater less to them now as they have found a new audience that gobbles up any wii natured game they can throw at them (Wii Fit, Wii Music etc).
nintendo i supported all the way up to the game cube area but as time was changinging ninetendo dosent move advanced with it hardware the wii is pretty much game cube repackeged and i was going to buy a wii but ninetendo lost me after snes it was one of there best hardware they made but 64 gamecube wii nintendo i lost intrest in them they were good but i do give them props over m$ thought i used to own all the nintendo consoles even sega so iwas getting best of both worlds at the time imean they are using last gen tech does not support blu ray does not support 1080p if there was more hardcore game on the wii i would not regret buying a wii i mean look how many mario games theve been mario 64 mario galaxy mario sunshine even the karts series and the brawl series just the same graphic as the the previous version and ive been a supporte of the ps1 ps2 ps3 sega saturn mega drive dreamcast not a fan of m$ thought
Write like a 12 year old.
Nintendo is living by a thread.. >>>> MARIO!!
That sold 10.5 million units, thats a pretty big thread!
I think he has a point I still have my GC with mario, windwaker, twilight, mario kart, metroid, f zero, smash bros etc. And I keep trying to justify buying a wii and the only things that make a real case is mario galaxy and wii sports for someone else and maybe endless ocean. but yes this could be just a sign of me getting old :)
Did you ever play punchout? New punchout rocks hard. After stopping console gaming at ps1 I bought a wii for punchout. I bought the balance board for punchout too. MOAR PUNCHOUT NOMNOMNOM
Nes was off the chain and had awesome games double dragon, mario3, metroid, etc. Snes awesome games regular cool art design Zelda, earthbound, mario, super metroid N64 games are still awesome but bad disck format and high price. Mario64, Zelda Gcube they started to get kiddy but only slightly with animal crossing, wind waker zelda, etc Wii they went pure 3 yr old kindergarten style. Wii looks like a baby diaper change station. Mario galaxy is so kiddy with art design and everything. I mean galaxy baby story... Games with Miis are kiddy, The design of all there games are soft kiddy designs/colos except metroid but I didnt play that. Look at snes games like zelda, mario kart etc. Then look at wii versions. the wii games look casual kiddy style compared to past nintendo. Nintendo did bad with Gcube because of stupid mini disks no RPGs or GTA . N64 lost because it didnt have CD or and there games were 70 bucks. You also needed a $50 expansion pack for good games. Now nintendo cant even make new cool franchises.
i think they brought a rope company!
Yeah nintendo owns the rope company and ms and Sony over paid for their own neck ties. The motion control push may just be hd gamings 32x. The back lash is from angry fans that want sequels and kids who started gaming in the ps era. There is a silent backlash from people who are truely hardcore gamers. We talk with our wallets so far the truely good games on the wii do around 10 million each. Good meaning fun.... So hd gaming will committe suicide the way things are going or return to being pc only. They keep trying to say their systems are exotic cars when they are just used hand me downs. It's bad when you have to call some thing some thing else to explain it's worth. If those are high end cars then I must have star destoriers then.
Nintendo is dishing out the most first party titles in 2010 than they have ever done. Mario, Metroid, Zelda, and pikmin in one year. How can people still complain about nintendo not being hardcore.
How can you say that they are hardcore!! Dont you have a television??? If not, I give up!!
Do you have working eyes, or does real life hurt them, cause its not in HD? read an article or two. Do research on anything other than GameInformer, or better yet look at my Wii game collection, minus the cheap $15 Fred's bargin bin games, and Tell me its not Hardcore. I dare you. The Wii is just as Hardcore as the PS2. Need we remind ourselves of the guy in EB who was hype over Katamari 2? That doesn't mean PS2 was all casual crap. Same Goes for Wii. It amazes me cause I know you truly did grow up with Big N, heck you introduced me to them, yet you turn your back on them, then say "They" changed??? F-Zero GX on gamecube was the most hardcore ever, but "You" feared it. But if people think like you then this article holds some truth. Farewell older Nintedo fans who moved on. Hello Revival of oldschool Nintendo. We'll just agree to disagree here. Here's hoping you don't mind running a round of Tatsunoko Vs Capcom, so I can kick your viewtiful A$$ with Joe and Yatterman. LOL
"But make no mistake, the company that you grew to love and support during the 80s and 90s is no more, replaced by an impostor that doesn’t have your best interest as a gamer in mind." ----------- Seriously? People are still writing garbage like this? Nintendo is "hardly concerned" with epic versions of their core titles? What do you call Galaxy? We'll be getting a sequel of that very soon. And when has Zelda been anything BUT epic? Anyone played a bad Metroid? Anyone? It amazes me that "hardcore" gamers constantly look at games like Wii Music or Wii Fit, and pretend that's all Nintendo does, while ignoring all of the core titles big N has already put out this gen. Changing the controller interface will have much bigger ramifications for the future of gaming than a gen chock full of HD shooters, IMO.
Ever posted anything on N4G with this much truth before? Probably, (lol)But as of 2010 this is post of the year, in response to this garbage article of the year. Honestly people are still on this shtick? Its time to get a new one.
