No need to counter, look at the sales of the 3DS, what is happening in reality is the best argument of them all
How does the fact that the 3DS is selling slightly below expectations due to high price, a gimmick that people don't want (3D) and lack of compelling content from Nintendo exept for casual or oldschool gamers (which is a deliberate move by Nintendo to try and make a more favorable market for 3rd parties) not to mention so many god damn ports counter anything I have said?
It counters your argument if anything...
Nintendo has traditionally been very holliday heavy anyway and we won't really know how the 3DS is doing untill the holidays.
So are you even going to try?
How does it counter my argument at all? Casual and old school games, ROFL, the 3DS lineup is far from a casual and old school friendly lineup, nothing you have said has disproved my argument that Nintendo is going in a wrong direction, and the sales completely support my argument.
I see no point in trying to refute your points when they really have no basis in reality and that assessment will be continued to be borne out in sales.
but all may aguments have data to back them up.
So are you saying that Pilot wings, Nintendogs and a 2D fighting game are not casual or old school? They are all simple pick up and play games.
lets look at Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for a seccond a game that has sold over 25 million copies is a 3D sandbox one of the most complex genres in video games and Call of Duty: BO another 3D game that has sold over 25 million. Obviusly Nintendo should just make sandbox games, FPS' and sports themed minigame collections from now on because they sell the best obviusly they have been going in the wrong direction as these games sell the best...
See I can make your agrument as well
Also the origonal Super Mario Bros sold over 40 million New Super Mario Bros. Wii only managed 22 million obviusly 2D Mario sales are declining and Nintendo should be trying to find more successfull themes because at this rate sales will be below 3D mario...
minigame collections and Kart racers on the other hand have never sold better...
Oh I forgot you are really just but hurt that Nintendo aren't making the 2D marios and 8-bit games that you like.
