Yep. As I watched the various shows all I saw was essentially the same game with a different character model and weapon.
So glad Nintendo is so different.
Yes, Instead of guns guns guns you get mario mario mario.
with multiple years in between.... not every other month.
What? If you're a nintendo gamer then you enjoyed Mario 3D Land, New super Mario 2 and New Super Mario U in less than a year apart each. Thats not even getting into the Mario Karts and the Mario Sports games or Paper mario or Mario and Luigi. Or Luigi U coming soon.
Talk about diveresty.
Different consoles. You're only argument is NSMBU and SM3DWorld. But that is also 2D vs 3D and offer dramatically different experiences due to that.
All I'm saying is there is WAY too many games across all publishers/consoles that are simple the formula of some character that uses some weapon to kill someone in a First or Third person point of view with realistic graphics. Its getting monotonous and boring.
Nintendo is clearly different and while they do recycle their IPs, its always with multiple years in between and almost always not on same console more than once.
I have the same reasoning why I'd never buy a yearly iteration. I think its dumb. oh no same game with different labels and one minor new feature!!! F-that.
Also you're focused on one IP out of a great variety Nintendo creates. MSony have different IPs that are all the same basic game. That's the difference.
