Nintendo gamers are (stereotypically) the nicest gamers

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo gamers are (stereotypically) the nicest gamers

Overall, I'd say this is true. You get a few bad eggs here and there, and I could name some on this forum but I won't, but for the most part hostility from brand religiosity comes least from Nintendo. It's not unheard of, just the least common.

For well-documented reasons, Nintendo console owners are more likely to own multiple consoles. Therefore they are more likely to have broader tastes in games than those who game exclusively on one console.

So it's not so much that Nintendo gamers are more pleasant as it is multi-console owners are more pleasant, and Nintendo console owners are more likely to be multi-console owners.

@ Pokoko: Word for word. Did you invade my brain or something?

I'm afraid that information is top secret.  Please move along in an orderly fashion.



I do agree but some go a bit over board

Well, most of us doesn't have to deal with the stress of hearing constants swear words about our moms on online multiplayer games, so we have this going for us, wich is nice.

Polite/cultivated/intelligent Sony or Ms fans are old Nintendo fan that have moved on during the N64/GCN days.

The main annoying fans come from the PS2/XBOX/GCN era were they were spoilt with lovely 3D gfx as their first real gaming experience.

You could argue FPS fans are bad, but its mainly the teens. Those of us who grew up on FPS like duke, unreal, quake, tribes are a bit more civilised.

I wouldn't identify a multi-console owner as a Nintendo gamer though.

Indeed, that is a traitor.



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

Couldn't agree more, evidently there are rude stupid Nintendo fans & polite/cultivated/intelligent Sony or Ms fans, but Nintendo games/environment don't seem to match with "hardcorz" bully minded "my gaming hobby is serious" teens!

Just for the anecdote, during the PS2 GameCube days, there was a country where Nintendo sold more GameCubes than Sony sold PS2, it was Canada,one could say that a a society with better education has different tastes, also the difference in sales between the PS2 & GC was smaller in other countries with better education in Europe too.

I hope that no one gets offended, but there seems to a relation between your level & quality of education & the games you play. Before people labelling me, I owned PS/PS2, SegaSaturn (they died on me...) own PS3, pretty much every Nintendo console except NES & VirtualBoy, Dreamcast, a top notch PC & play very different kind of games, from CS to MarioKart, passing by rFactor, SoulCalibur, Zelda, Battlefield 3, Flight Simulator, Journey, Red Dead Redemption, Tetris etc. so I hope to be Bias free. Take care

Just to make this short, you can dress this up as "an objective observation by an objective gamer" all you want, simple fact remains that your implication that more educated people rather bought the Gamecube over the PS2 since it suited their tastes better (or in other words the PS2 was for stupid people) is unbased and insulting.

Also I would very much appreciate a source for that part about Canada.
