That's what I think. Does anyone else agree?
Let me share my story. The N64 was my first Nintendo console and I basically bought it for Goldeneye. I bought the first Smash because it looked interesting, what with Mario and Link and Starfox all in the same game, but then I saw characters like that guy in the suit with the big shoulder pads and thought, who the heck is he?
Fast forward to the Gamecube era, I've done a little research and can't wait for Metroid Prime to arrive. I buy it the week it comes out and I now own every single Metroid game (MP3 pending).
I buy Melee and notice those weird characters with the swords. I'm curious to discover more so I buy Path of Radiance for a friend. He tells me it's really good so I get it myself. I agree and can't wait for Radiant Dawn to come out on the Wii. When it comes out I buy it and it's one of my favourite sequels ever and I want to play all the other fire emblem games now!
I've also grown rather atttached to that cocky guy who keeps saying "show me your moves" so I buy F-zero GX, love it and now I really want Nintendo to make more.
Then there's that little guy called Olimar. Pikmin kind of passed me by in the Gamecube era, but I hear it's a good game and I see that NPC Pikmin 2 is coming out. I buy it the day of release and like it so much that I join the VG Chartz Pikmin fanclub - bring on Pikmin 3!
You get the gist. I doubt I'm the only person this has happened to. Do you think Nintendo may have come up with the greatest kind of advertising a company could possibly create? I think so! If a similar thing has happened to any of you then please share your stories too.
