Is Nintendo Switch really a success?

in Sales Discussion, last active on on 09 October 2018

Nintendo Switch has been on the market for a full 18 months by now. The launch hype is gone and the dust has settled, so this is a good time to recap the console's achievements or lack thereof. While the general consensus is that Switch is selling well and successful, such a conclusion doesn't hold up under scrutiny. It's not all sunshine and rainbows in Nintendo land and we have to be honest...

An open letter to the black community of VGC

in Politics Discussion, last active on on 23 September 2018

Hi, my name is Rol. I am a VGC-holic. I grew up in Austria, a country that is infamous for being less than friendly to people who are different. It wasn't until the age of 12 that I learned that there are words for foreigners and people of other ethnicities that are not derogatory, because xenophobia and racism are so deeply ingrained in this country. I suppose it's part of our DNA and I am sure...

How Nintendo can challenge Sony's dominance in Europe

in Sales Discussion, last active on on 24 March 2018

"Europe is Sonyland."-Conventional wisdom It didn't slip past my attention that Europe is commonly considered a Sony territory, even by Nintendo fans. The big question that everyone is asking is what Nintendo can do to make it less one-sided with Switch. I will answer this question in this thread. But before I delve into a deep analysis and provide said answer, let's take a look at historical...

Are Nintendo fans more racist than PlayStation fans and Xbox fans?

in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 15 March 2018

Recent topics about racism got me thinking about the state of things in video game culture. One captivating thought was that Nintendo gamers may be more receptive of racism, because in a general sense most of them get indoctrinated at a very young age which is why they keep buying Nintendo hardware and software throughout their lives. If Nintendo fans are prone to that, it isn't much of a stretch...

Are Nintendo gamers engaging in reverse racism towards third parties?

in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 19 October 2017

First off, the thread title needs explanation. I've looked around online to confirm that my definition of reverse racism is correct, but apparently there are conflicting opinions. Some sites state that reverse racism describes racism that is directed from minorities towards the majority, but that's really plain racism as it remains discrimination based on race. What reverse racism actually is, is...

TalonMan doesn't believe in me

in General Discussion, last active on on 22 October 2017

In my latest quest to become a moderator, I asked TalonMan to make me one for a brief period of time. I suggested one hour to prove myself, meaning that I wouldn't do anything crazy during that timespan. He declined, of course. The conversation - fully viewable on TalonMan's wall - didn't end there though. He suggested that I should make a thread to ask the community if I should be a mod for one...

Is it time to worry about Austria again?

in Politics Discussion, last active on on 11 November 2017

I am always late with these things because I care so little about politics, but it has come to my attention that there are elections in Austria this Sunday. Some people may remember my thread from last year about the presidential election: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=216193 This time a new government will be formed and things are pointing towards a coalition between ÖVP...

Gran Turismo Sport vs. Forza Motorsport 7 vs. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

With the incoming launch of Gran Turismo Sport, all of the big three will have their flagship racing game released. If you are still on the fence and wonder which console to buy, this comparison may come in handy to help you make your decision. Commonly, comparisons focus on only a handful of stats, but I am going to feature a whopping 20 categories to make the comparison as objective as...

Forza Motorsport 7 charts at #50 in Japan (Media Create)

in Sales Discussion, last active on on 07 October 2017

VGC regulars may know about barneystinson69 who is prohibited from creating political threads because he tended to inject an aggressive and shortsighted agenda into everything he posted. He has gotten around it by asking others to post political threads for him. Now you might think "Damn, what a sly fox!", but others merely posted the news without injecting any agenda, so it was ultimately pretty...

Kotaku: Nintendo Switch owners really, really care about game icons

in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 02 October 2017

How important is the design of game icons, the visual indicators of the titles available to launch from our consoles’ dashboards? A number of Switch owners are very particular about the colorful squares that show up on their home screens. They’re calling for changes, and developers are listening. (...) One particular commentseemed to strike at the heart of the criticism:...

Reached 50 entries in my moderation history - UPDATE: Make that 60

in Website Topics, last active on on 24 March 2019

Hi, my name is Rol. Today I have an important announcement to make. The ban I received last week marked the 50th* entry in my moderation history. Many of you probably know me as someone who analyzes the psychology of forum members, but what's also worth of note is that I am self-aware. I know that I have a reputation among many people that I get away with virtually anything here on VGC and...

Destructoid: Breaking down why Breath of the Wild is highly overrated

in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 09 August 2017

It's been just over five months since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild opened to a landslide of perfect scores from the media at large. I was beginning to think we as a gaming community had gotten past hyperbole, but many have been quick to declare this the best Legend of Zelda game, the best open world game, and the overall best game of all time. It's a given that it...

Nintendo has a realistic shot at returning to #1 this fiscal year - RESULT: Nintendo back on top (21.45m), Sony second (19m+)

in Sales Discussion, last active on on 09 May 2018

Several weeks ago we had discussions about Nintendo and Sony selling totals of 700m and 500m consoles, respectively. We also had a thread that was specifically about Sony's ability to close the gap. Obviously, the gap can only be closed if Sony is #1 in the video game business. This has been the case during the last few years, but it looks like that run will come to an end, possibly already...

A Biased Review Reloaded - Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in Review One Year Later

in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 22 March 2018

A Brief Introduction to A Biased Review Reloaded A Biased Review originally started as a casual affair in response to a review series called An Unbiased Review, so its setup ended up being similar when it turned into an actual series as well. I've written over 70 reviews in less than four years, but the whole thing became more and more disjointed and less passionate as time went on. Most...

Five reasons why Nintendo doing DLC is a good thing

in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 16 February 2017

There has been quite a bit of backlash after Nintendo announced paid DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Some people have gone as far as claiming that Nintendo has embraced the dark side while others called out Nintendo fans for being supportive of Nintendo's methods, stating that Nintendo fans are basically digging their own grave by letting themselves get screwed over like this....
