yes? i cant see that.
and dont come with 3d world, the cat is clearly targeted at the internet and women, not at kids.
Well it just seemed pretty evident. Alot of their characters look brightly colourful and cartoony faces so obviously many can mistaken them for kiddish games. Also their gameplay/controls isn't that difficult either that a kid can easily grasp how to play it.
Soon, Nintendo will have Splatoon. The title already sounds kiddish! And whats the concept of that game? To splash others with paint in some sort of childish game of man-hunt or capture the flag. Speaking of which, alot of Nintendo's game titles sounds kiddish too!
So you can't see how Nintendo games can look kiddie, but you clearly see that Mario 3D world was targeting the internet and women. Because we all know kids don't like cats too, nor do they like to watch cat videos......sounds like you're just picking and choosing what you want to see.
colourfull and cartoony is for kids? well thats new for me. sure i like my milk, cookies and saturday morning cartoons in the 90s, but ohh boy, those cartoons were not made for children. dragonball was realy dirty sometimes, and Rocko was working for a sexhotline. and dont forgett that nowadays the best selling cartoons are made for adults, not children.
splatoon is a fine jokename, i realy like it, even if it makes me a bit angry that charlie sheen didnt get an oscar for platoon...
and most nintendo games dont sound kiddish, they sound like innocent fun and a good time.
nintendo makes games everyone can enjoy, the other companys focus mostly on teens with "mature" games, but there is nothing mature about a bad told war story and a grey world.
I never said colourful and cartoony is only for kids, but it is kiddish because majority of designs that are colourful and cartoony are aimed towards/appeal to kids. Look at the majority of animation movies, Pixar movies (Frozen, Finding Nemo etc..) and tell me who are the majority viewers? You'll be full of yourself if you say its not kids. Parents take their kids to watch that. Why? Because the appearance looks suitable for kids regardless if there are some mature content. I never said all of Nintendo games are kiddy looking, i said most. There are exceptions, just like how DBZ is an exception, but that should be given because the concept of DBZ is human-like fighting/killing human-like. Think of a number of Nintendo games and the main character and their villains. I bet you alot of their villains aren't even human-like, and more so friendly looking ie. Goombas, plants, pokemons etc.
Splatoon is a fine joke name but its so simple of a joke that kids can understand. And when you think if 'Platoon' you think of the movie and not the actual term meaning of a group of soldiers? Already you show how uniquely different you see things. You don't think titles like Kirby's dreamland or marty party doesn't sound more attracting to kids? They sound innocent and fun sure, just like how kids are also innocent and fun.
Yes Nintendo makes games everyone can enjoy, including kids! So if you want to market anything that kids can enjoy too then you'll have to make it look kiddy!!! Hence back to my original point that alot of Nintendo games look kiddy. You said it, I just elaborated and explained what you said ;P
....I don't know if you're serious about all of this or you're just trying to work me up >.> If you don't believe me then do what I did and go work at a video game store/department and ask a bunch of kids and parents.
