Nintendo needs to widen their styles. 

This.

One of Nintendo's biggest problems at the moment is that like 95% of their output is E-rated cartoon fare.

Most gamers today demand more than that. Nintendo needs to make their own equivalents to stuff like Uncharted, The Last of Us, Gears of War, etc.

Nintendo games are as big as ever. It's just the hardware userbase that's limiting them. If the NX does better, the games will do better.

I speak for myself but hardware has never hold me back from purshasing a console,games are the biggest factor and i do think that counts for most.

I didn't say the actual hardware, I said the hardware userbase. As in how much the hardware sells, not how powerful it is.

I both disagree and agree with this. Its just, thats why we have PC, ps4 and xbox one. So we can play those gritty games on that console. I like that Nintendo sticks what its doing good at, but they just need third party support and then they kinda already have gritty games. They should stick what they are good at and with that Nintendo magic

By making more M-rated games. People want violence, blood, sex and over-the-top mayhem.

Oh sorry for the misunderstanding,i do think the hardware userbase mostly ties with games on the system or expected on it.



They need more variety. Most of their games are E or E10+ and although there's nothing wrong with that, they need to realize that there's more than just their main demographic to appeal to. Also they need to experiment a little with their well known franchises and try to spice them up a little.



 

Their games are huge. I don't know what you are on about. Mario still sells at an immense attach rate many series wish they had. Zelda was always a more moderate sucess, but still very sucessful.

Mario maker, smash, splatoon have all had quite a favorable acceptance amongst all audiences.

I really have no idea where this is coming from. Its not the first thread i've seen lately with such outlandish notions.

 

Oh... do you mean how will they target a mature audience? Well... i'm not sure they want to. But bayonetta and devil's third were efforts in that regard.

Of course library plays a major role, but it certainly would've helped if they didn't do things like have a gamepad with a screen that forced the price of the Wii U up by a lot :-/

 

I mean, the Wii U could probably have been nearly 100$ cheaper if it hadn't had the gamepad, and at that point I believe the Wii U could've sold okayish numbers, which in turn would've given a boost to Wii U software.
