What about when "Kiddy" characters invade the super serious worlds of things like SSX does it turn you off them?

Where does this lay on your scale of being able to enjoy the game, knowing that there are characters in it who's main colour palette isn't based on Grey and Manlyness.

I would hate my beloved SSX spoiled with kiddy Nintendo characters.

For the umpteenth time the fact that I dislike kiddy visuals does not mean that I play only rooted in reality serious drama adult looking games. Borderlands is fine, Minecraft is fine, but if you're and adult and like Kirby then I honestly think something is wrong with you (I mean anybody, not Ganoncrotch).

So you playing an 8-bit game designed for children (yet enjoyed by adults) in Minecraft, and a very animated cell shaded game (Borderlands), is different than someone else playing an animated game designed for children (yet enjoyed by adults) in Kirby?  The prejudice and stereotyping is strong in this one.

I didn't doctor that image you know, SSX on the GC has Mario, Luigi and Peach in it as boarders, you don't have to pick them of course, but they're there in the background... being colourful... and fun!

I take no insult in your views btw but my wife is sat on the couch watching game of thrones and playing Kirby Planet Robobot, looks amazing to me but I'll let her know there is something wrong with her for ya.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Honestly why stop there, why do adults play video games? It is such a childish hobby, and honestly you gamers need to grow up.

(I hope my obvious sarcasm pops through, but that is logic you presented).

Indeed. He should be doing something more productive, like reading the technical manual on rutine active maintenance.

Why would I have a problem if I like Kirby games (as a matter of fact, I love them)? It's a fun 2D platformer, it's my favourite genre, Kirby is one of the best franchises in this genre, everyone can enjoy them... I don't like to make assumptions, but I'd give it a try. It seems to me you're going through the same life stage I went over in my life. When I was 16-20 I changed sides after being a Nintendo fanboy all my life. Because I want to give the appearance that I was too male-y and mature. Turns out if was just a ridiculous stage in my life. I know laugh at it and enjoy all different types of experiences. It was a big mistake since I missed soo many good games, and gaming time I will never recover. It was the process of growing up which brought me to enjoy those "cartoony-kiddie" games again, as you named them, not the contrary.

Alright, name me one kiddy 3D platformer PC centric game series.

A Hat in Time is an indie title being built specifically in the spirit of the types of games you're talking about and is garnering a TON of interest from the PC audience. http://store.steampowered.com/app/253230/

There are also a whole slew of projects on PC that are cartoony platformers aimed at making the genre a well covered aspect of PC gaming. And before you go "indie games don't count" then you can't claim that PC gamers are interested in much of anything besides space simulators and RTSs... because you specified PC centric so I'm assuming you're limiting the coverage of multiplat titles covered in order to try to make a point. But I'm guessing indies won't count soon. http://store.steampowered.com/tag/en/3D%20Platformer/#p=0&tab=NewReleases

Outside of this the PC giant game League of Legends has some pretty damn kiddy characters and have had some champions edited to be more kiddy looking (removal of items etc.)

Only hardcore mature audiences need apply!!!

Lol... you're still a grown adult pressing buttan for entertainment. Ain't no girl gonna wet herself cause you're playing Madden instead of Super Mario.

Most girls I know would sit down and play Mario with you. Madden, not so much. I've had several parties at my house specifically based on Super Smash Brothers or Mario Kart or even Mario 3D World.



Tagging this, will give my opinion later



WTF? I hope this is a joke thread...

Question for OP, how old are you!?
Beacuse that mentality Nintendo games are for kids are typical for teens who only play "hardcore" games.

To be fair, Nintendo games do lack certain "adult" features like competitive multiplayer, headset functionality, party chat, rich novel-like narratives and character development.

This is the eternal Nintendo debate, everyone has different preferences.
