Before people get the notion that I am dissing the wii u let it be known that I do have the console and that by "this time", I am referring to this particular moment in Nintendo's output, not the wii u itself, seeing as how the wii u had a solid launch with decent support. I hesitate to use year seeing as how the year isn't over with.
Anyway looking at Nintendo's recent E3, it is safe to say that fans were left dissappointed with budget titles for some of the greatest Nintendo franchises (metroid, animal crossing, legend of zelda, ...), and that new wii u owners don't really have much to look forward to in 2016. Third party also seems to be non existent aside from skylanders, guitar hero, disney infinity, and just dance (non of which are exclusive). Worst of all, the heads of Nintendo seem to be more content on displaying their distaste in other company decisions (realistic games, VR transition) or promising a better future, than actually addressing the current dilemmas many fans have brought up.
So my question to you guys is, has there ever been a worse time to be a Nintendo console owner (many people like to reference the year of wii sing or wind waker as a bad time) or is this it and why?
Please leave out hateful comments about any particular console as the purpose of this thread is not meant to compare consoles, rather it is meant to compare this particular moment in Nintendo's output to previous ones.
