The short answer is yes. Ever since Sega defined what core was, Nintendo has struggled with it. Sometimes it's caused them to bottom out, other times, they've managed to navigate and do well in spite of it. But since the 16-bit wars, they've been pretty clueless when it comes to the "core" crowd. Either that, or they don't care.

Sega?  The same sega that has been irrelevant for decades meanwhile Nintendo actually matters in the world of gaming?  I'm pretty sure sega define 1 hit wonder.  Outside the genesis sega has crashed and burned on everything.

He's actually correct despite it all sounding so wrong.

"Core" as we are talking about here is defined as gamers who don't like Nintendo, ever since the Sega days. So it's not surprising that Nintendo can never get it right. Once you grasp this truth, all the other pieces fall into place in these weird discussions about what "core" means.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV will outsell Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I was wrong.
