Ok I'm gonna say this... Nintendo lost me during the N64 era... yes I bought a Gamecube but it was better at gathering dust than a vacuum cleaner. I was never really interested in Mario games except for Mario Kart but hey, one game isn't enough. The Wii just sealed their fate in my opinion, I always respected their business and considered myself not the target demographic. No need to hate on them like some other people would prefer to do.
Now I'm older and I am way more picky than I was before. I just watched what Nintendo had in store for E3 this year and I was kind of surprised. I feel like they brought back something... something that got me into gaming when I was younger. Having fun that's all... after I saw Reggie and Iwata (was that him?) fight I thought "wow these guys are wayy too funny". I like that way more than the seriousness that both MS and Sony try hard to portray.
I like gritty games but before the grittiness I need to have fun. My favorite presentation from E3 was Sunset Overdrive because of the presentation and all. I also liked Ubisoft's conference because the girl seemed to have fun on stage (kinda like her)... even that Kinect fitness game seemed kinda fun.
But Nintendo games are fresh imo and it will be a welcome change in my library. I planed to buy a PS4 to complement my gaming needs this year, but I decided to change my mind and get a WiiU instead. I already have an Xbox One for the serious dude bro games so this winter I'll be playing Mario Kart and Bayonetta (both games hell yeah) alongside Sunset Overdrive, Halo and Forza Horizon 2. Later will get Sonic and maybe... maybe they'll convince me to give Zelda a go.
Just wanna say thanks to Nintendo
