Locked: Why I don't like Nintendo

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Why I don't like Nintendo

You're taking the piss right?

Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

I should have stopped reading after the first sentence. You sound very selfish, and you are rather ignorant. I believe those are the harshest words I've used on this site so far. :P


1. They keep making mediocre games.

Not really, no. 

2. I played Mario games since I was 8 years old.  Fast forward 20 years later,  they're still making Mario games. Princess Peach.. that bitch keep getting kidnapped.

Also when I say Mario games, that includes games with Mario in it.

See, the problem is that people love the games, so why the heck should they stop making it? If you don't want to play it, then don't.

3. Yes, they continue to copy their own mediocre games after copies after copies, so many copies.  Pokemon red, blue, ruby, yellow, gold, silver, X, Y, Crystal, green, pearl, emerald, black and white, Black and White 2..(there is more) from 1996 to present. I was happy with just 150 Pokemon.

Millions of others aren't happy with 150 pokemons though. Also, the games are clearly not mediocre, it they were the franchise would never sell this much.

4. The series of Supersmash Bro is mediocre just like Mario Kart. The Motor Bike chase in FFVII is better, Power Stone, Chocobo Racing, Marval Vs Capcom, Capcom Vs SNK, Crash team racing is all better.

I never really liked Smash myself, but calling it mediocre is laughable. Brawl is the most fleshed out racing game I've ever seen, and I really doubt a franchise that is "mediocre" would generate this much hype. Also you comment on MK contradicts pretty much everything everyone have been saying since MK 8.

Crash team racing is a MK rip off. And you say you are tired of Nintendo copying their own games? Clearly that's not the problem here.

5. Zelda, Pokemon, and Mario is over rated. They need to retire already.

This is the selfish part. I find it hard to understand how ignorant you are right now. Millions are still buying these games. Newsflash, it's because they think they are good. They might be over rated, that's your oppinion but saying they need to retire is just a stupid comment.

6. Let me tell you what Nintendo cares about. They care about their own IPs. They make their system for their IPs. They don't really care about anything else because they know pokemon, zelda, and mario is all they need.

Let me tell you what Nintendo cares about. Cash. Let me tell you what Sony cares about. Cash. Let me tell you what MS cares about. Guess what, cash!


Nintendo has a way of doing buissines in that way, and it has worked pretty good so far. Pokemon, Zelda and Mario is not all that they need, that's why they have Fire Emblem, Smash, Xenoblade, Golden Sun, Advance Wars, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Steel Diver, Dillon, Pushmo, Pikmin, Star Fox, F-Zero, Rhythm Heaven, Elite Beat Agents and more that I can't think of.

They also secure third party exclusives, in case you missed it. Games like Bayonetta 2, W101, Devils Third, Pandoras Tower, The Last Story, Monster Hunter 4 and so on.

7. When I look at Mario games, kart, smash, pokemon etc. I see nothing new.

That's probably because you haven't played them, or you just don't want to see something new. I'll agree that Pokemon is just rehashes at this point, but Mario games keep reinventing themselves, we had three Smash games so far and all have changed up the formula quite a bit. The new Kart added many new things, but are still MK at it's core. I don't really see the problem. Millions still love these games, accept it and move on. If you don't like it, play the franchises I listed over.

8. If Nintendo is going to make a new RPG game, then I hope they leave Mario out of it. Anything with Mario or Zelda is a turn off.

Play Xenoblade then. Or Pandoras Tower. Or The Last Story. Or the Monster Hunter games. Maybe you just want the exclusive Dragon Quest series. Or maybe Rune factory is your thang. Little King's Story possibly? Or yet again the fantastic Fire Emblem Awakening? 


I really am bored.

Mostly poor reasons to be honest.

It's fine if you dont like some aspect of Nintendo, but at least give some proper reasoning.

Zilda? How can a game be overrated i ever even heard about?

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

Criticizes Nintendo for rehashes and mediocre games yet loves Final Fantasy. Hmmmm.

Cool story bro.

Except you're wrong in most points, I agree with you.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Those franchises you mention are what kept Nintendo alive and well, you don't expect them to change just because some don't like them...

...Let the Sony Domination continue with the PS4...

tbh other companies milk their games too, but whats irritating about the way Nintendo do it is that the same ones which had flagship status 20 years ago are the same ones that have it now. Nintendo doesnt want to give a new game that chance.

this just sounds like a person who has a grudge against someone because someone ells told him that the person was bad instead of actually finding out for himself

good for you dude
