Nintendo is smart, and I hate them for that fact

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo is smart, and I hate them for that fact

I'm talking about the new remake of OoT. I've been around to numerous fansites and what do I see? People praising this game. Praising this re-release of a game we all played almost 15 years ago. It's fairly graphically updated sure, but since when did we all turn into graphics whores?

Nintendo knows they can make huge cash cow ports instead of putting real innovation and effort towards making a new game. They know it. It's true, and it's all because of all the fanboys' nostalgia for their beloved games.

How many ports of OoT have there been already? Why do some of you back up this game, back up Nintendo's laziness, when we could be getting new adventures and new gameplay from Nintendo?

Nostalgia. Nostalgia. Nostalgia. Go around to any site and you'll see countless fanboys creaming their pants over this game due to nostalgia. Nintendo knows this, and that's why Nintendo can be lazy and give us a coughed up 15 year old game.

 

I will never support this type of developer behavior.

How does everyone else here at VGC feel about this kind of developer behavior? I know there are at least a few fans on here who are going crazy with anticipation over this remake of OoT, and I want to ask you, why should we be excited for this? If you're  fan of OoT, haven't you played the game countless times already? Do you really want the same adventure, same gameplay that we have already been playing all these years? All because of slightly upgraded graphics? What else is there that I'm missing?

All I'm doing now is praying this isn't cutting at all into dev time for a real 3DS Zelda game - but I'm fairly sure it is. If someone can show me otherwise I would greatly appreciate it.

I never really liked how people always want remakes. Just like how many people want a ff7 remake. I don't like remakes of maps (dlc-mw2 halo) or games. But yes people would buy them anyways so yes nintendo is smart.



I think you have a valid point.

That being said, this has always been the way Nintendo runs their business. Their first party titles are good, beloved and timeless. So they release new consoles and handhelds and rehash those games. Sometimes they are all out new games with familiar characters, and other times they are simply remakes of older games. Since it has always brought them success, and in recent years A LOT of success, there is no reason in the forseeable future that I think they will change how they operate their business.

yeah, stupid Ninendo and their intelligent marketing practice of delivering to the market whatthe consumers are interested in.  how lazy.

the consumer is dictating this game, and Nintendo is simply responding to that demand.  but if you think a massive company like Nintendo has such limited resources that they are actually diverting resources from a new Zelda IP to afford this port, well that is simply as ridiculous as criticizing a business for making money.



Well.... i welcome this game. If people ask for it, i believe nintendo is doing the right thing. If they don't do it, is bad because they dont listen to consumers. If they do it, is bad because they are being "lazy"

Oh well, a lot of companies do this. Is just bussiness...

None, since every other release is the original code running through an official emulator.

*runs away*



WHERE IS MY KORORINPA 3

FOr most games I wouldn't care for it. But Zelda:Oot is far and away my favorite game of all time, so getting to play a new version with more polished visuals and 3D is very exciting to me. On the other hand I have no strong feelings for Star Fox 64, and therefore have no interest in the remake/port.



I can think of one good reason why people get excited for an OoT remake on the 3DS: There hasn't been a good handheld Zelda game since Minish Cap.

And really, this is nothing new. The GBA had it, the DS had it as well. A port or remake is faster to get ready for the launch of a new system than a brandnew game.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Congratulations on missing the point of everything I wrote. You deserve a medal. :P

 

I'm upset over the fact that Nintendo is smart and realizes they can take advantage of the nostalgia in fanboyism. If you took time to understand what I was saying, you'd see what I'm really mad about is the fact that fanboys are so nostalgic and get giddy over ports of games we've been playing for almost 15 years. When they could get something new. And why do I hate it? Because it means that Nintendo will be remaking old games instead of giving us new ones.

It's not Nintendo's fault at all and I never meant it that way. *shrugs* You totally missed my point.

Is Nintendo so massive that they can make SS and this port of OoT and still have all the people they need leftover to put all the effort needed into a brand new Zelda 3DS? You have no basis for that argument besides your fanciful thoughts. How about you find some way to prove it?

 

Nintendo is smart and they're making amazing business decisions. I don't doubt that at all. I just hate that fanboys are still creaming their pants over a game we played 15 years ago with a few slight upgrades. It goes entirely against myself as a gamer.

 

And this is coming from Nintendo fans. Fans who for the past few years have been screaming "Graphics whores~!~!~!" At HD fanboys. It's so ironic I can't help but laugh.



Well, Since OoT is superior to every Zelda that came after it, and since I want to see it in 3D, I think its a good move by Nintendo.



I LOVE ICELAND!
