Wait did someone with a shounen avatar agree with someone who says Nintendo is for younger audience, so older people shouldn't like Nintendo.

I think we are awfully close to pot calling the kettle situation. 


IM not the one saying it. I just said its a little weird lol

It isn't weird though. His analogies that he made in the video are completely false. For instance, the barney and teletubbies analogy is completely ridiculous. People like me prefer Nintendo games because of the level of polish and care that goes into every project. If barney were considered some kind of masterpiece of art or television, then you would have grown men who are fans. We Nintendo fans are not addicted to games that teach you how to count and shit, we like games that are actually GOOD. So broken games needs to get the fuck out of here with that shit, and if you agree with that point there, then you obviously haven't thought about it enough. He is just flat out wrong about that analogy.

Also, I'd like to mention something else. What does he consider a kid game? Are games like mario and Splatoon for kids? Yes, I think kids can enjoy them, but that doesn't mean they are exclusively for them. Look at call of duty. Kids fucking love that game. Look at the game he is playing in the very video he is talking about this.. that is content that appeals to children, and don't try to tell me it isn't because I tutor math to elementry school kids at a place called mathnasium and they love that stuff. A lot of them have heard of splatoon, and I can tell you from experience that it doesn't seem to be something that they are interested in a whole lot.

So basically, what games are for kids needs to be reevaluated. And anybody who thinks this guy's points are solid really needs to think about why people actually like Nintendo games. If you can't figure it out, then you are quite out of touch

Fully agreed.  The Nintendo faithful here will get really mad at me for saying this but: SERIOUSLY grow up!  Nintendo is without a doubt geared towards younger kids.

And if I enjoy things that are geared towards kids, why is that a problem?  Should I do what makes me happy, or what makes you happy?

My unsolicited advice: man up and say what you mean to say then.



Because Telletubbies and Dora are totally the same thing as Zelda, Smash Bros, Xenoblade, Splatoon and such! Oh boy.

You agreed with him that it is little wierd, which can easily be turned around at you being a dragon ball z fan.

Social norms for the longest time and to a certain extent still do, is that any gaming above 20ish is seemed as childish regardless of genre. The thing is, do you let people dictate to you what you should like?



 

I didn't get beyond the first 3 minutes, but I'm pretty sure the remaining 6 is full of similar blah blah.

He talks about disorder, disease, something neurological gone wrong, tics, behavioural traits that are literally like children, but he also says he's talking about the real extreme, obsessive Nintendo fans, a small group. So he's stating the obvious in that context. Whoop-de-doo.

But you can bet that plenty of people, once they've watched this video, will conveniently forget that context and happily tar everyone who enjoys Nintendo games with the same brush.



I just left jail today (unbanned) i will stay the fuck away from this thread LOL

But i agree 100% with what BG said. I advice people to hear the ENTIRE video and not just read the title because it is not what most of you are thinking.

P.D. That video was somewhat a response to DocTre81 (relative famous Nintendo Youtuber).

Hey man speak your mind. If someone gets mad at your opinion thats their problem. Anyway I do agree with you.

Yeah, that part did it for me too. After hearing that, I have come to the conclusion that he is either doing this completely for hits, or he is a complete out of touch fool who doesn't know how to think
