Nintendo needs 3rd parties to fill the gaps in their library. Having arguably the best game in many genres does nothing for the guy that wants to play WWE, Golf, NBA, JRPG, etc. Nintendo gamers love Nintendo's games but a guy like me needs a variety.


Then buy another system!

I do!  But I fondly remember the days when I didn't have to.

Where'd this "2 games a year" falsity come from?


First party wise 3-5. 


Game & Wario

New Super Luigi U

Pikmin 3

Wind Waker HD

Wii Party U

Wii Fit U

Super Mario 3D World

Thats 7 first party games for Wii U this year and thats considered a poor year for support



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Some of us can't count past that.

You know, I vowed never to post in this guy's threads again but I had to congratulate you on this post.  

But since I'm here anyway...

OT:  Of course Nintendo needs 3rd party support - they're just not as reliant on it as their competitors are.

nintendo should buy crapcom. they have good IPs and they are broke, buy em, fire all the fucktards, make the games exklusiv and get all the old games on the E-shop... that would help a lot.
wii u would have a bunch of mature exklusivs and would be the console u have to buy for retro gaming...

and get a deal with sega for the E-shop. shouldnt be so expensiv.



I like how toastboy hasn't even responded.



Well for one thing, who has ever argued that Nintendo DIDN'T need third party support? Certainly not Nintendo themselves, ever.

But for another, Nintendo first party games DO tend to be the software that pushes Nintendo's own hardware. But third party support IS important, and with system sales, you have to believe it'll steadily come back. Wii U had one of the most robust launch lineups in gaming history, the support was there. It just dried up when system sales dried up.

I have! Of course, 3rd party support can only help, but I don't think Nintendo "needs" their support.

Also, currently the support from 3rd Partys is still there for Wii U, well except from EA. The problem is as you said, it's 1st party that sells their consoles, and they went 8 months without a Nintendo made game.

When the megadrive struggled in its early years, Sega said "Screw it" and established studios to make those kinds of games for themselves.

Nintendo could do that too.



I LOVE ICELAND!
