"Listen up, I'm not coming back to the industry to sell some watered down, get-grandma-off-the-couch weak-sauce".

There are no words!


I'm glad I got a chance to play Wii Sport bowling with my Grandma before she died.  She never played video games before even though I brought my NES, Genesis, PS1, etc.. throughout the years over to her house.  If you ask me this is one of my greatest video game memories and I thank Nintendo for releasing the Wii to allow both of us to enjoy a game together.  By the way it didn't get her off the couch because she was in a wheelchair.  She did bowl about a 150-160 though which isn't too shabby for someone that barely played.  I just wanted to point out that even though most "hardcore" gamers seem to despise casual games it does provide an opportunity for "hardcore" gamers to play video games with parents, grandparent, young children, anyone that wouldn't normally play...

facepalm

I give me condolences on your loss and apologize if anything I, personally, said offended you.

Thanks for quoting me with one word.  You care to elaborate or is that your usual counter argument?

I am not offended.  I am just trying to point out that it is fun to play video games with your Grandma or parents.   Just because they are old and didn't grow up with video games they tend to be left out from most games.  Motion controls allow them to actually be able to grasp how to play the game.  My mom tried to play Mario 1 back in the NES days.  Even though there are two buttons and a d pad it was still too many buttons for my mom to grasp (she might have gotten past the first level).  However, she can play Wii bowling, etc..  I'm just trying to point out a few things which you probably already know.  Playing games with your family leads to some good family moments if a game is easily accessible to everyone in the family to play.  You can't plop a PS3 controller and have your grandparents play KZ3 with you most of the times.

I know K.B. is trying to act cool or keep his bad ass image and saying a line like that will probably allow him to keep it.

Okay, well I tried to explain myself better in the response to CGI.  It isn't like I am trying to jump all over the K.B. quote.  I am just trying to show a different perspective (that it can be fun to play video games with your grandma, and that games which everyone can grasp the controls allows for the entire family to participate).

You haven't really said anything wrong, you just see it in a different way compared to sethnintendo and others. For example what someone else might see as a unnecessary comment bashing customers, you simply interupted as lighthearted marketing joke. I know it is joke, but I someone who likes almost all my console and almost all gaming, find it very childish and unnecessary for a company to constantly do digs like that.

Well, I never argued against playing with grandma (used to play Mario/Duck Hunt on the NES with mine, in fact), I just thought that piece was funny.

honestly...i don't wanna get into it so this will be my last reply to you on the matter, he never said anything that goes against what you just said either (referring to KB ad). it's just people overthinking things plain and simple. I already made my opinion on the matter clear earlier to seece as well and i don't want to go any furthure into it

Okay, maybe I thought too much into it. I wasn't really looking for an argument. I was trying to just put my point of view out there based of the quotes. Anyways, I'll let you guys enjoy K.B. return.
