Nintendo will never change much. They do things their own way, they are not only just a Japanese company, but a Kyoto-based Japanese company, which means they are incredibly stubborn. Stop expecting them to change, they're not going to change.
They will make some adjustments, but they will never suddenly just become like this radically different company. Not going to happen.
You either accept Nintendo for what they are and enjoy it, but if you're sitting around waiting for Nintendo to dramatically change, that ain't happening.
And people always over exaggerate a few things of change each generation "GameCube uses discs! And is easy to program for! Nintendo has changed!" .... not really, there was still plenty of "oh, Nintendo" moments with the GameCube. And Wii. And Wii U. And there will be with Switch.
It's the Nintendo way. The fan community is never going to wake up and have this perfect Nintendo, it's like a spouse that keeps thinking one day their significant other is going to wake up and magically be the person they want them to be, when they're not. You need to either accept them for what they are or move on.
This goes for both "Nintendo die hards" and "Nintendo haters" ... to both of you, Nintendo is likely going to piss you off or baffle you this generation. At least multiple times. You either accept that and just move on and play the games or you get hung up on it.
