Maybe Nintendo's Just Not Into You

An excerpt from the article, "Nintendo has made a killing by getting Liv Tyler to play the DS and Matt Lauer to play Wii Fit. They have two grandmas and a Midwest housewife for every 30 year old former NES owner. Sure, they can tease about the teams behind Zelda and Mario working on new titles but Shigeru Miyamoto has recently brought us Nintendogs and Wii Fit. What's to say that these teams are working on titles for fanboys? They could simply be creating the next big Nintendo casual game and peripheral.

Nintendo fanboys, please listen closely. They appreciated you for a long time but the greener pastures of mainstream acceptance and piles and piles of money have changed the Nintendo you know and love. You may just have to accept that maybe Nintendo's just not that into you anymore."

"My Wii started gathering dust after ten minutes of Wii Fit. There are only two or three good games on Wii and they don't count as much because fanboys gave them really good scores. Other Wii owners, I told you so. E3 is proof that my actions were valid and now I urge you to sell your systems and move on to bigger and better things."

"I gave up my ____ for ____ because ____ and now I am going to tell it to everyone out of spite for those who still like that system."

There are too many of these stories. Grow up. I wouldn't be selling my Wii even if this was a college thesis paper and all your arguments made sense. Sorry.

"A large, vocal and rabid group of Nintendo fanboys has supported the company through thick and thin ever since they collected their first gold coin in Super Mario Bros. and shot their first duck in Duck Hunt." Thanks for the 'ad hominid' attack. I didn't know were rabid and vocal. Who says we support all of Nintendo's decisions? Have you seen the the hardcore Nintendo crowds' response to E3? We didn't like it either.

To say that the first party games on the Wii are crap because "(paraphrase) Wii fanboys including journalists" gave them good reviews is just biased hate. I'm sorry Mario Galaxy has a Metacritic average of 97. Please point all the glaring problems that should reduce this score to below whatever game it is beating on your console of choice.

"Nintendo fanboys, please listen closely. They appreciated you for a long time but the greener pastures of mainstream acceptance and piles and piles of money have changed the Nintendo you know and love. You may just have to accept that maybe Nintendo’s just not that into you anymore."

You might just have to be accept that maybe Nintendo fanboys actually appreciate what hardcore games there and are content with waiting out the storm of mainstream shovelware.

I just don't like the generalizations this guy makes about Wii owners. I enjoy most games so if a fun game is on any system, I will try to play it.

Nintendo should sell their consoles in shops that sell Zimoframes, mobility chairs and hearing aparatus. They should also set up shop in babies r us and on supermarket shelves next to tampax and femfresh

Not all Wii games suck, but there is quite a bit of shovelware on the market. I don't hate my Wii, but if given a second chance I wouldn't buy it again. SSBB is the only game I really play on it (TP too, but that came out on GC which was a better system all around IMO.)
