I don't think so. Think back to the Wii and GameCube days where the only big games were coming out in the last quarter of the year. It sucked.
2005 comes to mind when RE4 came out in January and then...nothing until September and October when we got Battalion Wars and Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance respectively.

Personally, I'm still playing Smash and playing catch up with SMO. And I got TSA:NMH to go through still. I don't mind that Nintendo's second half of the year is stacked as fuck.
