Nintendo should

be more like Sony in gene... 35 19.55%
 
have at least one studio like Team Ico. 53 29.61%
 
not bother with the segment. 91 50.84%
 
Total:179

Yet as far as I remember, Ocarina of Time had that crowd interested, or at least LttP before it, or Zelda II (I know, I'm going way back now).

Do you think it's possible to have a bit of the old Zelda appeal and mesh it with the new, or do you think it would just be better to pull OP off with a new IP or try it again with Metroid (which is still very close to its origins, spiritually).

That crowd was much smaller back in the late 90s, and they were mostly playing Final Fantasy on the Playstation.

I think Nintendo should make the games they're good at making, and fund games (like Bayonetta 2) which would not otherwise be in their portfolio.



Fair enough. If they're lucky, they can snag a team like those who made SotC, a diamond in the rough. The only fear I have is that Nintendo might influence the design without learning that thing OP talks about that makes the games mentioned so bang on, and as such breaking the objective in the process. However I concede that the inverse pollenation is also possible, though I have my doubts and would expect the former I brought up to happen first.

One of the reasons I called for Nintendo themselves taking it seriously was so they could learn it, and help their newly purchased studios grow in it to cater to that segment, rather than negatively affecting that goal by infusing their current ways in the acquired studios. It would be a loss as far as I'm concerned.

And then there's this need -> http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=4799621

In essence find a new Rare to make the mature titles and fund them.  :)
