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.
