How Nintendo Helps People Through Tough Times

There is a lot of Nintendo hate lately, and sometimes it's even hard to understand why people hate so much one of the most traditional companies in the industry, or why it became so 'cool' to hate the company. An article made by the Website NotEnoughShaders is showing some people who have a lot of great memories to share about Nintendo, and the question remains: Is it really acceptable to hate Nintendo? Actually, is it acceptable to hate any of the big 3 manufacturers?

Here is a portion of the article:
“The Nintendo DS gave me my life back. It helped me to talk again because some of my games I have to interact with in order for them to work. I have to give instructions verbally and if I don’t say things correctly it doesn’t understand.”

People need to stop saying that "x is cool to hate now" just because others opinions differ from yours or the norm.

People don't hate Nintendo. But a lot of them are critical about their more recent trends and sometimes understandably so.
It's all subjective.

What's a non-issue to you may be an issue to others, but you can't just ignore the subject and right it off as nothing but hate.

We all have issues/complaints with all the 3 companies, all 3 have some kind of problem, but it's not "hate". This article, obviously, isn't talking about people like you, but people like Pyro2000x (on youtube) or people like Hatsume Miku, who is always posting "Nintendo is a piece of shit bla bla bla" in every Nintendo article.

Not too much to complain about when it comes to Sony, lately. Just saying.

While most people are reasonable, there is a definite hatred among people ingrained in the hardcore community. Maybe not hatred, but a from of disrespect. There is nothing Nintendo can do to win people over. Any success is met with a completely unrelated criticism, sometimes they can't receive a completely un-backhanded compliment.

One example: Nintendo finally secures a mature, hardcore, 3rd party exclusive (which is what people have been asking for, saying it's why they don't support Nintendo) and instead of people discussing how this improves the Wii U lineup, you get people saying they're going to kill themselves because they might have to buy the console.

MaxXAttaxX4304d ago

That's good for Nintendo and Nintendo gamers. But you can't blame the fans of the first game for their reaction.

ShinMaster4305d ago (Edited 4305d ago )

SOB stories to excuse/detract from valid criticism...sorry "hate".

The only company that's been getting the most negative doom articles is Sony.
I don't remember seeing any Nintendo related articles about why they will fail and how the end of their consoles is coming, etc

ChickeyCantor4305d ago

You don't need the articles. This website proofs enough of those type of people. And believe it or not, a lot people are smacktalking Nintendo.

linkratos4305d ago

I this a joke comment? There have been non-stop articles on the subject. Only recently have they calmed down.

I wish they would have resurrected and used the Nintendo Power name. I had almost every issue starting from around Mario 3 forward, and at one time had Nintendo Power foldout posters as an upper border on the wall, circling my entire room.

PRIMORDUS2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

I also have well, every issue of Nintendo Power and also some Fun Club Issues before it transformed into Nintendo Power. They are all stacked in a plastic tote lol. Most have probably turned yellow by now. If you would like the whole collection as a torrent there is one here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Da... Torrent magnet link.

Nintendo power name instead would've been cool

Between the low sales, the shit in the memory that simply dies and the regional crash on the Gamepad. This is a console that will become stupidly rare in a few years.

IRetrouk10d ago

Still got my black one fully working, I should maybe box that bad boy up lol

DarXyde10d ago

It's really funny to think about people harvesting Wii U parts like some organ trafficker and selling them on the dark web.

But sure enough, Nintendo Will probably try to find a way to put a legal bullet in the base of that person's skull.

Chocoburger9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

Actually its the opposite, boxing it up is what will kill the machine. You want it plugged in, and you want to power it on frequently, that's how you'll extend the life of the memory chips. This brief video explains it.

Appreciate the tip chocoburger

badz14910d ago

nah...just their way of saying, just buy the Switch already, you pleb!

FinalFantasyFanatic10d ago

Unfortunately, there are a few games still stuck on that thing, I've been hoping they'd port Xenobalde Chronicles X and Twilight Princess over to the Switch since I didn't buy a WiiU.

MetroidFREAK2110d ago

I still have one in working order. Debating if I should grab a 2nd one before too long

hiawa2310d ago

MY Wiiu is still connected for Wii Punchout, and the Donkey Kong game which comes out on the Switch in January 2025. Almost everything else has been ported over.
