Different consoles. You're only argument is NSMBU and SM3DWorld. But that is also 2D vs 3D and offer dramatically different experiences due to that.
All I'm saying is there is WAY too many games across all publishers/consoles that are simple the formula of some character that uses some weapon to kill someone in a First or Third person point of view with realistic graphics. Its getting monotonous and boring.
Nintendo is clearly different and while they do recycle their IPs, its always with multiple years in between and almost always not on same console more than once.
I have the same reasoning why I'd never buy a yearly iteration. I think its dumb. oh no same game with different labels and one minor new feature!!! F-that.
Also you're focused on one IP out of a great variety Nintendo creates. MSony have different IPs that are all the same basic game. That's the difference.
I'm not talking about a system, I'm talking about a Nintendo gamer bitching about diversity. Playing the same 4 games every 2 years for the last 20 years and calling out samey shooters on diversity. You'd be right to call those games out on ps4 and One too, but don't go praising Nintendo for it. I enjoyed Mario 3D land and New Super Mario 2 and New Super Mario U a lot but there is little diversity between the 3 and all 3 rehash elements from older games.
