Nintendo's Wiining ways

Ten years ago, tough times had hit Nintendo with shrinking sales and profits, increasing demand for new products and growing pressure from competitors. What hope was there for a comeback from a tradition-bound company that had seemingly lost its way?

For Nintendo, the dire situation facing it in 2001 was just another hiccup in its long rise to the top of the video games world. As the same conditions reappear in 2011, confidence remains high in yet another revolutionary turnaround from the venerable 121-year-old Kyoto institution.

The Gamecube was great I still have it, I enjoyed Super Mario Sunshine, Zelda Wind Waker, Pokemon Coliseum, WWE DOR 1 and 2, Mario Kart: Double Dash (The DS one is my favourite one).

I think the support for it by other developers made people buy the PS2 and XBOX due to games like GTA and other adult games on those consoles (Well Killer7 was on the GC). Capcom and Sega did their part for third party support. I remember Capcom 5.

I never played the game lol but I will try it out sometime.

The producer of that game made my favourite series this gen, the Ryu Ga Gotoku/Yakuza series.

I have always loved Nintendo, and personally im glad to see them back as a success.
As a true fan, i supported them back in the dark days of the end of the N64s life, and through the Gamecube days, but with the Wii shooting them to the top again, it makes me happy.
Long may it continue.

I loved the Nintendo 64, I think the wrestling games on there were much better than the Smackdown series on the PS1.
