Nintendo Fans: Quit Your Bitching

Matt Furtado of Kombo Writes: "No, Nintendo didn't tell their fans to stop bitching. Instead of them telling you to, I'm going to do it for them. Why? Because you all need to seriously stop your continuous complaining, whining, and bitching over nothing. Every time Nintendo reveals they are going to hold a conference, every single Nintendo fanboy comes forth from underneath their little rock and starts to make outrageous predictions that will never come true. Then, when Nintendo doesn't make the announcement of biblical proportions, you cry like an infant about how Nintendo betrayed you and doesn't care about you anymore. Believe it or not, Nintendo has been around for over 100 years. The chances are, while slim, that their corporate leaders might know a thing or two about running a successful multi-billion dollar business."

Nintendo fanboys do cry a lot. I guess after 20 yrs of supporting one company they feel they deserve that right.

N4g_null3768d ago

What is funny is there are no nintendo fanboys here maybe 12 at most... The only people complaining are HD console owners trying to validate their system of choice.

This is a none problem in my eyes. Now RROD tears and bored waiting bad port having PS3 owners fighting xbox 360 guys are the worst. Then they have to always come and tell other why they moved on to the HD side LOL and how they where once a nintendo fan... your not now so who cares?

razorbladelight3768d ago

what do you mean Nintendo fan boys complain. they have high expectations? thelast tim theyheld a comference most people assumed it would be a tacky game n were right. speculation? yes. expectation? none. the only fanboys that go around complaining are ps owner about how their system of choice is still weak in their expectations, but makes up for it in graphics. it's overcompensation for other important things it can't fulfill. sound familiar Vega?

Worst article ever. Don't complain about something you bought that is not delivering? WTF? Nintendo deserves every bit of complaining from the hardcore crowd. Wii Play 2 isn't going to cut it.

BrotherNick3768d ago

You don't get it. Remember they said the wii is for EVERYONE? It delivered what it said it would.

Xiru3768d ago

Everyone except gamers.

Let me guess, the author of this article probably has Wii Music on pre-order.

Wii Music, actually is a unprecedented milestone in gaming. Why? Because it's the first time a company comes out with a game that basically has a big "F' You" to the core gamers, and then probably end up selling millions anyway.

Only Nintendo can do it.

While Microsoft is going around buying 3rd party exclusives (but good games nonetheless) and Sony is just making their own games. Only Nintendo can come up with something so stupid that will sell more than the other two companies combined.

Bravo Nintendo. Bravo.

BrotherNick3768d ago

Big deal, I still have a bunch of games to play lol...I still have my de blob, Mushroom men, deadly creatures to play, all unique experiences that aren't on other systems. All the other systems have are the same goddamn rehashes. Only things that look good for any of those next gen systems and different are Heavy Rain, Mirror's Edge, and LBP.

VF34EJ253768d ago

I don't need "innovation" to enjoy my games. I'll enjoy my re-hash Gears of War 2s, Resistance 2s, God of War IIIs, Gran Turismos, and the list goes on.

I like my games with quality presentation, and don't need a gimmick to enjoy them.

BrotherNick3768d ago

Graphics are a gimmick if you put it that way.

jeffaustin903768d ago

Best article ever. It said everything I've ever wanted to say about my fellow Nintendo gamers who 'just don't get it'.

morganfell3768d ago

Someone needs to tell the author of the article to quit b*tching. He also needs to stop with support for the transparent attempts by Nintendo to pretend they haven't really dumped tons of the core fans. They have...period.

And why is a word allowed in an article that can't be replicated by commenters?

Mini Mario3768d ago

"I like my games with quality presentation, and don't need a gimmick to enjoy them."

Then maybe u should play PC games, because compared to a PC the xobx and ps3 are both below standards.

I was very disappointed with GTA IV...u guys WAY overhyped that game.

FantasyStar3768d ago

That's my personal **** you to Nintendo.

Imallvol73768d ago

you, good sir, are full of win!

BrotherNick3768d ago (Edited 3768d ago )

That's cool. People have different opinions. Did you sell it for full price? Which games are you playing now? :)

kitzuki3768d ago

Seriously if you love gaming the wii isnt for u after uve beaten their current 1st party games

BrotherNick3768d ago

I think love is more like obsessed. I actually was thinking of getting a 360 but I'd have no time for more important things in my life.

FantasyStar3768d ago (Edited 3768d ago )

I actually traded it over Craigslist for a 360 Pro package. Right now I'm catching up on GRAW2 because something about that game makes me smile.

For the Wii, I could put up with last-gen graphics. I can also put up with the Wii games too, but what put over the edge was the constant reminder that the Wii doesn't display in full 720p. The image was blurry, there were jaggies everywhere, and worst of all, the image doesn't even fill up my whole screen. I know people will say "it's all about the games", but when I have my PS3 displaying everything as crisp and sharp, I can't help but compare sometimes. I don't mind the graphics of the Wii, I mind the presentation of it and that's when I decided, that's it. Nintendo has sold me a cheap console with cheap games with worn-out motion controls. It's like a domino effect: it takes only one admission to tip you over from Innovative-gamer to Nintendo hater.

I have full respect for still-Wii owners out there, they can put up with Nintendo alot better than I can, but I bought my HDTV to enjoy it, not frown upon it at the grace of Super Blurry Galaxy.

You know, Super Mario Galaxy doesn't look half-bad and the music is probably the best I've heard to ever accomodate a video game this gen, I practically play SMG because I want to listen to the Orchestral. But the jaggies kills it along with the blurry screen thanks to 480p crap.

And I do admit; I have a hard-on for chainsaws and blood.

FantasyStar - I traded my Wii for a PS3.

I know what you mean about production values!!
For PS3 even the game loading titles are epic.

I can only compare PS3 games to hollywood blockbuster movies. Wii games are like low budget independant studios.
Not that that affects the game. Independant movies are often better than hollywood blockbusters.

But the PS3 is such value for money. I can't believe I bought a Wii for £180 and a PS3 ONLY COST ME £280!! What a bargain.
Hollywood production values, phenomenal game list (that is just my opinion - I'm happy for others to disagree), and a blu ray player thrown in for only £100 more than a Wii.
I hope its the Wii-mote development that inflates that price to £180 as if the system came with a standard controller I'd put it at £100 - £120 maybe.

Even if the PS3 didn't come with a blu ray player it would still be a bargain as the system is just that far ahead of Wiis and PS2s.

Look at the news channel on Wii and now look at Life with Playstation.
I admit PS3 ripped off the idea from Nintendo, but in typical high production value style smashes it out of the water. Wii has a simple 3D globe. PS3 has actual live satellite data to make up the globe, with live cloud patterns.

I bought Metroid for the Wii - it was OK, controlled well using the Wii-mote ... but when I got Call of Duty 4!! Wow!!!
I don't have a gaming PC (just an old laptop) so I'd never seen a game that ran like that and played so so so so much better than Metroid. I was amazed. And online!! Wii only owners are missing out.

There are a few games that interest me for the Wii like: Conduit, Madworld, Wario Shake it and Cursed Mountain.
But why have bad-looking cool games, when you can have great-looking cool games and on a high tech but really cheap system.

I guess sheeple just go for the most popular product. I honestly couldn't believe the magnitude of how much better the PS3 was until I saw one running. I think if you were to educate most gamers on the difference between the two products then they'd only buy 360s and PS3s.

Having said that I'm looking forward to Nintendo's next console. I've got a feeling that they will invest some of the masses of money they've made into a decent product. And one more thing. Please no more Dolby Pro logic Nintendo. Even the PS2 has 5.1
