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!

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

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.

LOL... i know you were going for sarcasm there, but with the exception of the SNES, that statement is actually true!

@ OP

You should probably change your avatar to a picture of Kim Possible. Then people will at least think that you aren't a troll

I gave up on Nintendo after Mario came to my house and threatened to break my legs if I didn't buy a Wii. I tried reasoning with him, but then he just jumped on my cats, turning them into large coins (which he then pocketed), and spit on my PS3, setting it on fire and destroying it.

While I still play it when Luigi or Donkey Kong come to "check up" on me, I'm just not sure I can trust Nintendo after an incident like that.

This comment is worth reading this stupid thread for alone xD



I LOVE ICELAND!

When hell freezes over
When Jennifer Aniston calls me up for a date
When Microsoft actually develops something original and innovative
When Sony actually makes money from the PS3
When I find something NOT made in China
When I come to vgchartz and don't see at least one stupid and pointless topic

I don't think anyone "gives up" on a brand, they just branch out to find different things. I once was a die hard ATI fan, but over time, I gave NVidia a chance, and find them to deliver a much better, reliable product. I rocked Nike sneakers for ages, and one day I saw some sweet Converses.

You don't "give up" on products, you just explore other options. I've explored them all, from the video game perspective, and I find Nintendo's to prove interesting and refreshing as far as ideas go. I enjoy the beauty of a well-created HD world, and the fast paced network games on the PC.

People who claim to "give up" are just closing their minds to gaming possibilities, and these people are frightening.

You got it right maan I may go back to Nintendo some day. When I was young I liked any game. Now I'm more pick and demand mature themes in most of my games. Times chang so mabey I will oneday enjon Nintendo again. Still people tend to develop brand loyalty I drink coors if I'm drinking crappy beer and not budweiser. Its just what people do, but hey all still pound a bud if it's given tome.

LOL usually if I have to drink crappy beer, I'll switch to hard liquor



I used to be a die hard Nintendo fanboy but noticed their decline during the N64 era. I still waited another 10 years before I knew it was time to switch. They appeal to a younger casual audience. They always have except now they don't even try and hide it.

Don't get me wrong I'm glad i have a Wii for EA Active and some Nintendo gems but I'll never be an only Nintendo man ever again. I'm just too old.



None

I ve never gave up on Nintendo

Why give up on the best developper so far in gaming ???

Mario Galaxy is stellar, DS is a revolution etc
