Give Us Back The Old Nintendo (Nowgamer article)

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Give Us Back The Old Nintendo (Nowgamer article)

I understand where he is coming from.   But what they must remember, is Nintendo didn't leave them, they left Nintendo.    That group, that once loved their NES and SNES, drifted to PS and almost totally abandoned Nintendo for the PS2.    That's where the 'real' games were.  The GC was a kiddie system.

Coming into this gen there was no way Nintendo could beat Sony's tech or MS online.   Any attempt to do so would be suicide and as most of you might remember, many an analyst, professional or mere forum goer surmised that this gen would kill Nintendo.

So Nintendo zigged while they zagged.   Their old audience had left them so they went looking for a new one, and found it, and how!  This path has diverged them even further from that old market that Ms/Sony now dominate but why should Nintendo care?  

End of the day, the bottom line is this:  Nintendo is crazy f---ing profittable in this business.  MS and Sony are not.    So why cater to a group that cannot be adequately profitted from?   Fighting on terms set by Sony/MS and 3rd parties?

If Nintendo went back to the way they were it'd be the end of them.    Thank God they aren't that stupid.

In the meantime, tomorrow's game critics/journalists, who are equally female now, are growing up loving the Nintendo that is.

To me, its all about the fact that nintendos first party hasn't been as good as they used to be. And I'm not talking about making casual games, I'm talking about games like Mario Kart wii, Twilight Princess and brawl being the worst in their respective series.


They are?

When did this happen?

Another Wii hate article comes to join the pile.  mario galaxy 2 one of 2 games worth owning a wii for, that's where I stopped reading. How have htye not repalced rare? All rare is doing now are fitness games for kinect.  Even if Nintendo made about 20 games with a meta score of over 95%, people will still make articles liek this one.

There are so many clichés in this article that I can't take it seriously.



WHERE IS MY KORORINPA 3

Hrm.

I've spent way too much time staring at this Quick Reply area with something to say. All in all, I'll just say that... as one of these "older gamers" (which is laughable, because at 21, I never owned an NES and started with the Genesis), I'm completely happy with the Wii as a console. And if that means that I'm somehow a lesser gamer for it, then so be it.

*shrugs* At the end, they're video game consoles meant for our entertainment. It's too bad people have to go through so much just to get a simple opinion across.

I'd assume it was around their release date.

Well, I'd just like to let you know that they are not the worst.

SMBB>SMB64 any day of the week.

MKWii>Double Dash!!

And although I haven't played Twilight Princess, do you think that it's worse than LoZ for the NES?

I thought this was a joke thread because of the return of old school classics like Donkey kong and Kirby are returning. Well, that's what I got from the title. Too bad I was wrong...
