I gave up on Nintendo during the N64 era.
That was when Nintendo showed the world that they were more interested in actual gameplay than awesome cut scenes. Awesome cut scenes FTW!!!
And full motion video too... don't forget about FMV... only games with grainy, pixelated, poorly-compressed FMV were GOTY material back in those days!
Exactly. Who needed true 3D environments when you had that stuff.
That's what I'm sayin brotha! Get outta mah face with all these polygons and texture mapping and free-roaming cameras and z-targeting... just gimme some grainy-ass video to watch that plays at 6 fps unless you shrink it down to the size of a stamp!
Yeah. Nintendo was more concerned with "in game" graphics. Nintendo fans were such graphic whores back in those days. If there's one thing that I know, it's that no one cares about graphics. All you have to do is look up which consoles were the sales leaders each generation to see that.
