"Gimmicks" are features and it is why Nintendo has been so successful over the years.

The d-pad on the nes controller? A gimmick.

Gimmicks come and go within a year or 2 what Nintendo introduces and have classed as a gimmick becomes common place for the other manufactures... Gimmick? It's not a gimmick just because they try something different from the other two.

A D Pad is like a joystick without the stick. It uses less material, it makes it far easier to intuitively control in the palm of your hand. That's not a gimmick, it's a user friendly evolution for gameplay purposes. On those terms, I accept that the Wii and WiiU weren't gimmicky. But the Wii was cheaply made with lots of shovelware which, whilst outside of Nintendo's control if they wanted publishers to be able to publish what they wanted, arguably gave the appearance of gimmickry to long term gamers, The WiiU had far less shovelware but sticking with the Wii name (and not even bothering to update the appearance of Miis) arguably gave it the appearance of gimmickry by association with the previous console that had so many shovelware games on it. Unless you regard 'U' as standing for 'U Turn' which the WiiU partly was in terms of quality control compared to the Wii's shovelware.

Easy to port architecture and power enoughxthat the 2nd screen doesnt degrade performance, and hard drive. As much as i prefer to run from the disk, it turned devs off. A slightly smaller screen in the controller.

Oh and also all of the trolls to have an open mind to whatever new idea nintendo has.

I like that logo. Pretty cool. N64 was my favorite Nintendo Era.

This article is fantastic. This is what happens when someone puts thought into their words instead of blindly hating everything.
