    Did Nintendo save gaming with the NES?

    in Nintendo Discussion 1 hour ago

    Jumpin said: tack50 said: In the US? Yeah maybe. Worldwide? Hell no.In Japan consoles were just keeping business as usual. So there would certainly be tons of consoles being released in Japan, and I imagine at least one of them would have been sold internationally and exported. If Nintendo had decided not to export the NES to the US for some reason, maybe Sega would have and...

    Mnementh said: No. Let's see to your arguments. javi741 said: IMO yes Nintendo did save gaming, some people think they didn't for several reasons. But I'll counter argue the common reasons why people don't believe Nintendo saved gaming: "If Nintendo didn't do it someone else would have" -This argument completely based off of faith, and you'd need to have a ton of faith that a...

    hunter_alien said: Playstation introduced neither the CD-ROM nor the home console, but yes, I do agree it made it standard. The industry was already stalling a bit with Nintendo and Sega, and new blood was needed. And that new blood sold more than twice the combined total of its rivals, so yeah downplaying the influence Sony had on the industry is pure...

    JapaneseGamesLover said: The first home console to sell over 100m is PS1. Its closest competitor was NES with 61m units, while GameBoy was far more successful. PS1 changed the gaming industry forever with the introduction of CD ROM console gaming and making home consoles the main point of interest, bringing new players in the market, such as Microsoft.  PS2  confirmed that the...

    What's your Least Favorite Nintendo Home Console?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 June 2020

    I owned all of them and would honestly have to say that the Gamecube was the one that I played the least. Of course, it didn't help that I also owned an XBox and a PS2 that gen (the only gen that I have owned both Sony & Microsoft consoles at the same time). So, Gamecube just got the short end of a severely divided stick. ...

    On Saturday, June 20, 2020, I reached a personally significant milestone as a course creator on Super Mario Maker 2.  I finally crossed the threshold of 500+ Likes and 5,000+ Maker Points.  I have seen other creators that I follow create "Thank You", or "Celebration" courses when they achieve personally significant milestones, and so I wanted to do the same.  Rather than throw...

    2013 to 2020 1st party reception and sales battle - Redone

    in Sales Discussion on 17 June 2020

    Am I the only one that finds the term "Game of the Year Award" has been getting used pretty loosely around the internet? It seems like websites pop up solely to announce their choice of "Game of the Year" in a given year and then just disappear. For example, the list of "Game of the Year" stats that I was linked to from Dualshockers for 2013 accounts for 523 total GOTY winners. But 2017 only...

    New course uploaded yesterday and updated to OP.  I'm not sure what got the idea into my head.  I guess I was thinking about how many minigames I could possibly cram into the same level, and it made me want to do a version of Action 52 where some of the games would be glitched, unplayable, or have softlocks.  Due to the limitation on transporting Pipes and Doors, I was able to...
