Locked: Yup, not buying a Nintendo system again

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Yup, not buying a Nintendo system again

Curl I think I know the solution for your problem, you really do need buy Nintendo products in year 3 or 4 at the $200 price range and have PC/PS4 (year 2 into that generation) as your main console.

I been Sony-Nintendo fan (since gen 5), and trust me it lets you mellow out expectations. Namely since Sony has long range announcements and nintendo does short term announcements.

me too i stopped with GC i was once a nintendo fan back in the 90s i enjoyed my nes, snes and even n64 i like there exclusive mario games aswell but once i got older none of there SW appealed to me any more

Oh Nintendo's software still appeal to me just fine, in fact I think they're still the best game developer in the business, in terms of the quality of their flagship titles.

I just can't stand all the extra baggage; the droughts, the lies, the Amiibo debacle, their stubborn refusal to listen to what gamers actually want.

gee , it was just a bad E3, get over it. they focused on 2015 and early 2016 releases. lack of more 2016 announcements was the bad part.

This.

 

I've been in the same boat since 2003.

 

Sony/PC/Nintendo ftw ;P

I still have hope for Nintendo. They have been disappointing all of us for quite some time this generation, and I understand your sediments. However, my hope comes purely from an entertainment standpoint. Yes, this generation wasn't kind to Nintendo, but they did this to themselves. As a result, many of us can agree they won't be obtaining a free pass. The anonymity in terms of marketing the Wii U really let the system down.


At the same token, their first party catalogue is stellar. Many of their AAA games were great to absolutely enjoyable. While some of the new IP, like Splatoo is the new kid, their old games still work due to their continual evolutionevolution; Super Mario 3D World and Mario Kart 8 being absolute highlights.

At the end of the day Curl, I am not disagreeing with your decision. As Omec from "Legends Of The Hidden Temple" once said "The choices are yours and yours alone." Either way, I hope your path towards greener pastures yield success!

I'm not dead yet, though I accept with great sorrow that I may need to be removed from Dengle's sig.

I wanted so badly to keep loving Nintendo, but it's like loving a drug addict, no matter how much you defend them, they'll always let you down, and in the end, your love can't fix them.

It's cool. Where to next? Xbone or PS4 or...Ouya baby.

What Nintendo needs to do is grow some balls and face up to the fact that whether they like it or not and whether they admit it or not, they are in direct competition with other home console companies. And then they need to go all in with confidence and not falter.they have all the big guns they need, they just don't seem to have the guts to go in full steam.

Haven't decided yet. I'll wait and see what the situation is by the time my Wii U ride comes to an end, which will probably be towards the end of next year.



It's also annoying as fuck that instead of looking in the mirror, realizing how out of touch they are, and addressing this, they just keep spamming Mario games and increasingly abusive Amiibo tactics. 

I can't figure out if they're in stubborn denial, or utterly oblivious.

 Sounds like a good time to join the Master Race. ;) We get the best multiplats and the PS "console exclusives." :P Lifetime backwards compatibility too!

It's taken a lot to overcome my deeply rooted attachment to them, but the last four years have gradually eroded my tolerance for their bullshit.

I've been on the brink for the past few months, and now I can say with certainty that while I'll ride out the Wii U and squeeze as much out of it as I can, I will not be buying NX, or any future platform of theirs.

Sorry Iwata, your princess is in another castle.

My greatest advice to you is ... judge Nintendo for their present actions, not their future actions. I.E. wait to see how the next console turns out before making that decision.

Although I have made my criticisms of splatoon and smash bros dlc in the past, I do acknowledge Nintendo as a good publisher. Unfortunately even the best of the best will make wrong decisions from time to time.

Honestly, their problem stems back to when they made the hardware for the wii u. Bethesda openly revealed how it was Nintendo making Nintendo hardware mainly for Nintendo games, despite the many many concerns from 3rd party publishers. It is now that we are seeing the full effects of that decision. IMO as long as Nintendo realises this and makes a console for developers and not just Nintendo games (common architecture, sufficient power, special features), they should be fine. They can even release it alongside a gimmick, as long as they  realize that they need to prioritze the basic essentials of the console.

tldr : Sony went from last to first in one generation, Nintendo may do the same if they finally get their act together.
