E3 2008: Nintendo makes laughable attempt to please "core" gamers | writes: "With all due respect to Mr. Fils Amie, when you trumpet Animal Crossing-a game about collecting furniture to decorate your house and writing letters to other cutesy animals in the town-as your shining example of what 'core' gamers are expecting, what we have is a failure to communicate."

I have much respect for Nintendo when they actually cared about gaming with NES and SNES, but after those 2 great consoles they fell off.

I know the Wii is very popular. But it is selling to casual gamers not hardcore gamers. do casual gamers know that consoles change every 4- 6 years. And will the hardcore Nintendo fans still be around to to buy their next system at launch price or to even start the word of mouth about the system. Casual means that the people that are buying the wii are doing so for quick and easy play does that translate into a Nintendo legacy or a one generational fad?

Nintendo...what happened man. I still love the SNES and the NES but're starting to slack. .___.;

Isaac3744d ago

It's been like that since N64 when they chose to use cartridges, and when they chose the Gamecube to be a purple lunchbox with a gimped optical media and a controller that was missing a left trigger. I loved those two consoles' exclusive games, but Nintendo dropped the ball, and IMHO they are dropping it much harder now with the core gamers, the ones they owe the fact that they survived the N64 and Gamecube eras.

juuken3744d ago

Okay, not starting. They ARE slacking. .______.

"and a controller that was missing a left trigger."

uuuuuu.....the left analog stick was not enough? the xbox and GCN controller looked simular aside from the main button layout(ABXY START). And both did a decent job with games then a PS2 controller could do(Seriously if you think a FPS game is fun with a PS2 controller then you're just full of it)

TheDeadMetalhead3744d ago

I don't care what you say, the N64 kicked ass!

The Gamecube, not so much. But it still beat the crap out of the S#!tbox!
