Nintendo’s latest well-designed, poorly implemented

The Miscellany News writes:

Nintendo's focus on casual gamers has been quite lucrative, but in the process, some argue, the company has left their more creative, innovative games by the wayside. I mean, very few Zelda fans thought Twilight Princess (2006) was any good, and did anyone in their right mind at all play Metroid: Other M (2010)?

With Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (2011), Nintendo hoped to change this perception, to win back old fans on the year of the franchise's 25th anniversary with a Zelda game for Zelda fans. And, in some sense, at least, they succeeded. But that doesn't mean Skyward Sword is a good game.

Nintendo really needs to follow Sega and abandon the console/handheld market. I'd have gotten a 3DS at launch but it was overpriced and didn't even have dual sticks. Instead, it had a single circle pad and just rehashes of the same old, same old. Their 3D is a gimmick too. The PSVita is for true gamers and people wanting console-quality software on their handheld. And it's only a matter of time before RE: Revelations comes fo PSV. Please Nintendo, take your babies, little kids & casuals and gaming ignorant away from the industry. Let them be content with their iOS/Droid games. Bring Mario, Zelda and all them and just develop for Microsoft and Sony's consoles. It's really the only way you will survive in the long-term. The WiiU is your last stand Nintendo, and I for one, can't wait to see you fail.

Don't lie to yourself. You were never going to get a 3DS.

It's amazing the amount of Skyward Sword trolling articles are popping up now.

Darth you are one of the reasons why gaming is declining... These so called "gimmicks" are what keeps the industry fresh, and if you believe little kids need to get out of gaming then you are an immature asshole... Nintendo has been around for over 100 years, and in gaming over 25... How old are you again?

I will buy wiiu because it is a nintendo console, and even if it flops with third parties or has zero online they will still have quality franchises i like to play... Im enjoying my ps3 right now but when skyward sword came out i spent ever free minute i had playing it... And it gave me that feeling you used to get when you play an awesome game as a kid...

So screw you and your pathetic view of what gaming should be, because clearly you dont know shit...
