Nintendo lovers, how did you feel when Sega finally died?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo lovers, how did you feel when Sega finally died?

It bummed me out. I still kind of long for the days when video games were doninated by companies who primarily focused on said industry rather than some of the largest corporations (Microsoft) and conglomerates (Sony) on the planet. It was inevitable and I like those two just fine, but it feels like the industry lost some of its personality that set it apart from the others.

Overall I was kind of sad as I owned a dream cast and as a kid was more into sega than Nintendo until they lost me with the Saturn and I moved on to the n64/PlayStation. That said, it was much like when Atari bowed out in that it was no surprise as it'd been out of most of our lives in NA for a generation due to the failure of the Saturn to catch on.

Really, it just makes me more impressed that Nintendo is still around... With the kind of money Sony/Microsoft are throwing around and the losses they're often willing to accept, there's not much room left.

Mostly indifferent. For one, Sega's days of rivaling Nintendo had already long been over, so whether or not they kept making hardware wasn't important. And two, their games were never so amazing that the prospect of getting to play them on a Nintendo console felt like a big win.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I don't think I was aware at the time of Sega's demise.. :/

I joined the Sega fanbase in 1999. I liked the Hedgehog before that but snubbed my nose at the quality of the other 90's offerings. I loved my Dreamcast so much. I was badly scarred by it's untimely death. Everyone bragged about playstation and madden and I just wanted my Dreamcast. It was a very special entertainment system. A friend on a Dreamcast forum gave me this sig.



Very very sad.

Both Nintendo and Sega made consoles in a similar spirit. Although Sega's way was unique in and of itself.

Something irreplacable was lost. Unlike if say, Sony or Microsoft would have left.



I LOVE ICELAND!

I never really got into gaming until after Sega made the switch so I don't feel anything either way :p

Essentiallu sega and nin are game companys. 

Sony and ms is more like tech companys. Either way im cool with my xbone. But sega man. 



Sega left a hole in the market no one ever managed to fill.

Although they missed alot more than Nintendo (consistency of quality), they were also a hell of a lot more experimental. Something the modern AAA market shied away from and the AA market dying completely destroyed.

They were true pioneers of gaming and get a lot less credit than they deserve.



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

I am Nintendo fan but I was also fan of Sega, I would love to we have Sega console instead Microsoft.



I honestly can´t remember when that happened xD

Personally, I wasn´t a hater, I simply had no interest at all in sega, for me the snes was miles better and never liked sega that much.
I have only enjoyed one Sonic game (from gamecube) so I don´t know how I felt, I probably just felt indifferent.

Thinking about that in perspective, well, it´s sad, it could happen to Nintendo or even the other two.
