Iwata's true vision of video games

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Iwata's true vision of video games

I don't agree. Video games can be a lot more than just "fun". This is an outdated approach and the simplification of this statement is insulting to games that actively try to be more than just "fun".

And why would they have to be fun for everyone? Why is catering only to a specific audience bad?

Wow. Way to come in here and shit on our remembrance of iwatas vision

Correct me if I'm wrong but we already have several threads mourning him. If this thread wasn't to make a point and just another place to speak out condolences then frankly this is a dupe thread and should be removed.

OP made a point and I challenged that point.

If there is no point in this thread that can or should be challenged then this thread is literally pointless.

Gotta say I agree. It is a pretty archaic way to describe games.

there should be a bunch of threads about this. Yes, there absolutely should be. Each thread about iwata is not identical by the way, this one in particular is about his vision. there is no real point the op is making. This is strictly just about the vision a legendary game developer had, and it's worth considering and respecting right now. 

I know you're not the biggest nintendo fan, but even so, you should have the ability to take a step back and understand the severity of the situation right now. This is a huge loss to the entire industry. The things this man has done has helped shape the industry that is responsible for the games you enjoy today. Just please try to understand. He was a very kind, lovable, goofy, and humble man, and does deserve the consideration people on the forums are giving him. You have to be able to see that?

this!

I woke and read the news and it's sad but when i entered the forums half the hot topics are mourning threads... please learn to use the forums and respect other people's opinions.

anyone's vision can be challenged and if you cant take it while in mourning you should stick to mourning threads



It took us a while... But we finally understand.
Thank you, Mr. Iwata. For everything.
We will all miss you very much.

Gotta say I agree. It is a pretty archaic way to describe games. 

The sentiment is noble but its often used as a weapon in list wars to elevate or downplay certain types of games from certain companies. We see it all the time with the "cinematic" and "nice movie" jabs even when its totally uncalled for i.e The Salty of Us. Jimquisition mentioned that the statement is debatable but he respects the concept, as do I. Fun means different things to different people.



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

If people disagree that games should be fun, then let's have them define what fun is. It should make for some interesting read. xD
