Dear Nintendo: I'm Sorry But...We Must Part Ways

For a kid who grew up during the dawn of gaming and gazed upon Super Mario Bros. with fascinated awestruck eyes, this is a heartbreaking moment.

"it's a completely different form of entertainment now. It isn't Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and it isn't Gears of War 3 and it certainly isn't Heavy Rain. ...maybe I've finally grown up." SO true. Yes they have Zelda and Mario but like he says where is the Heavy Rain, Uncharted, Gears of war type title. Gaming industry has changed a lot this generation. I keep saying it but Nintedo should release new (not Mario and Zelda type games) ips (along with Mario and Zelda titles). If they start releasing games like this I would be interested

iamsuperman I've been noticing you for a long time and you're just another N4G PS3 fanboy. This guy is no less. Now that Nintendo's going hardcore with 3rd parties, PSXextreme wants to steal their thunder by writing such articles about their own agendas, and that's pathetic.

He says that he tried to love SMG yet he couldn't... that's weird since the whole world loved it. Oh wait, its PSXextreme.com!!!

He also says that the SNES will be his only Nintendo memory and that he didn't like N64 or GCN at all. LOL, most of Nintendo's best games have come AFTER SNES... *sigh*

hater hate harder!

I was, just like him, writing my opinion. If you want love for Nintendo go to a Nintendo only website and not a website that has articles for everyone. I am looking for my next console as this is meant to be the net step. I am not just going to go for the PS4 I am going to go with what suits me best

psxextreme parting ways with nintendo?

that is a silly statement how can you part ways with something or someone you were never with?

scotchmouth4255d ago (Edited 4255d ago )

You are a pretty staunch supporter of Nintendo from what i have noticed in my short time here. Not that it's a bad thing but I find it hypocritical for you to call someone a fanboy. Your report of this article had nothing to do with anything other then you didn't like it putting Nintendo in a negative light. That's not being a good contributor.

Secondly how is a small gaming website going to steal anyone's thunder? You have me flabbergasted on this one. The only one that can undermine Nintendo is Nintendo. If they fail to live up to expectations, market this poorly, fail to appease investors, etc they have no one to blame but themselves. It's not as if some website with a guy's opinion is going to have any impact whatsoever on a console launch unless it's one of the bigger ones.

Finally let's be honest anyone over the age of 15 should be aware that the SNES was a largely dominant console in it's time producing a wide variety of games that appealed (and still does) to many. What Nintendo was doing with the NES and SNES was great and that's part of the reason there is a demand for those older games.

Try not to be so biased in your posting and maybe, just maybe your opinion will merit something. As it stands now it does not.

Not that I'm denying this is true. But how is this different than what the Wii is doing?
If we take games from the NES and SNES and bring them over to a new Nintendo console, we basically have the Wii.

-Super Mario Series-
NES: Super Mario Bros. 1-3
SNES: Super Mario World
Wii: New Super Mario Bros. Wii
-Metroid Series-
NES: Metroid
SNES: Super Metroid
Wii: Metroid Prime 3 or Metroid Other M
-Zelda Series-
NES: The Legend of Zelda
SNES: LOZ: A Link to the Past
Wii: LOZ: Skyward Sword
-Punch-Out!! Series-
NES: Punch-Out!!
SNES: SUPER Punch-Out!!
Wii: Punch-Out!!
-Excitebike Series-
NES: Excitebike
SNES: None
Wii: Excitebike: World Rally
-Fire Emblem Series-
NES: Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi
SNES: Fire Emblem: Monshō no Nazo
Wii: Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

My point? I dunno, you tell me. Nintendo seems to be bringing us the same experiences since the NES to SNES days.

>>>>The following is a response to the misconception that Nintendo has abandoned it's fans and is now only focusing it's attention towards kids.<<<<
Now some may argue that Nintendo is ONLY NOW catering to kids. But if that was the case, why on earth would Nintendo release commercials like this?
http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Plus they may have been some, but I don't remember seeing that many M rated NES and SNES games. Aren't M rated games what many consider to be "hardcore" today? The Wii has some M rated games. You can argue that the Wii appeals to a to a wider range of "casual" and "mature" gamers than the NES and SNES did. ;D
The proof is all around us.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex Edition, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty 3, The House of the Dead: Overkill, The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, No More Heroes, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, MadWorld, etc. Good games or bad, does it matter? They are hardcorz.

There are mutiple ways to spin it, but if someone says that Nintendo abandoned them with the Wii, you'll have to give a better excuse than "I grew up", "Nintendo is now focusing on kids and not me" or "Nintendo has changed". Becuase by now, people should be smarter and realize that that's nothing but an ignorant misconception on a massive scale. The only people that can say they have been abandoned by Nintendo are the gamers that only care about online gaming, which would be strange because nintendo only tried online twice. Which in both cases the laggist of Wii games were still better. Or the graphics whores who shouldn't be console gaming in the first place.

In short, only online gamers and graphics whores (who shouldn't be gaming on consoles) have the right to say they have been abandoned. 7_7

I agree with this article...kind of
I say that cause it does have those core titles that would be beast on other console but nintendo just don't want to back them like they do mario or put more effort into them

Disaster Day Of Crysis was an alright go by nintendo take away the on the rails shooting and wii would of had a wii cult classic

Metriod Prime Cruption 3 was just too sick that on HD consoles would of been :O

Good read, but I think Nintendo's on to something with Wii U.

PirateThom4255d ago (Edited 4255d ago )

Nintendo have pretty much lost me since the N64 and I don't even think that was their crowning achievement (the SNES was, for the record). "HEY WE'RE GOING HARDCORE! HERE'S A BIG TABLET WITH BUTTONS" and "IT'S HD AND HAS GORE AND STUFF" doesn't make it core, they know the core gamer spends money but they are using odd techniques to try and capture that market.

ZoidsRaven4255d ago (Edited 4255d ago )

Sony fanboys still pretending like played on a Nintendo console in their life?
Sad. 7_7

ZoidsRaven4255d ago

^pretending like they played^
Typo.

MinusTheBear4255d ago

Why not? I have always had both a Nintendo and Sony console in my household. From a SNES to PS1 and N64, PS2 and Gamecube, etc. It will still be the same for me now; I will get a PS4 for serious hardcore gaming and a Wii U for Zelda and Metroid.

ZoidsRaven4255d ago (Edited 4255d ago )

Why not what? I'm not talking about you, unless you are a Sony fanboy who trashes other consoles that don't have your brand name (if you are a Sony fanboy that is). 7_7

Fierce Musashi4255d ago

Should we really take Nintendo or Micro news..... opinion pieces from a Sony fan site seriously?
