Monster Hunter 4: A Final Fantasy VII Sized Coup For Nintendo

Chris Buffa (Modojo): It's a well-known fact that video games, and not highly publicized features, sell systems. The better a machine's library, the more likely consumers will purchase it.

With this in mind, Nintendo smashed a homerun with Monster Hunter 4. (3DS, Final Fantasy VII, Monster Hunter 4)

I still remember when Square Enix jumped ship to PlayStation. Felt like someone had punched me in the gut. Haha...of course, that was back when I cared about system wars.

Thing is the system wars meant something back then.
Didn't have to use the word "exclusive" when a title was. And Square moving from the Big N to Sony was a big thing because it was a complete move with things done that had never been done before. It was about an improvement in quality which resulted in an increase of sales. It wasn't just about sales.

Have to admit, I miss that time. Sure, the graphics were not as advanced as they are today, but there were so many cool games....Dreamcast was on the horizon, the Resident Evil series was still terrifying...I'm just being nostalgic.

No it isn't. Does MH sell very good everywhere? No, then it's not as big as FFVII.
