Let it be said that Nintendo's major franchises survive: unlike Crash or Fable they don't crash and burn even with how much they are or are not used.
(F-Zero is not a major franchise. Star Fox never quite got to the point of being major).
The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
