Honestly? Nintendo's 'bad' games arn't nearly as bad as other companies' 'bad' games. I'd call em mediorce. Our expectations are just way too high.amiibo festival is OK as a part game, frederation force is great outside of the dissapointment of the whole metroid thing (if it came out in metroid's heyday no one would have bashed it) and other N's gameplay is good.

on another hand, if you only make zeldas and marios, you dont take much risk

Good thing Nintendo also makes Splatoon, ARMS, Xenoblade, Pikmin, Fire Emblem, etc.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

you dont have to put etc, except those, the rest are Zeldas and marios lol

One poster? More like 51 so far. Of course, they don't represent nintendo fans as a whole but sure it as hell doesn't help their image with stuff like this.

51 poster? Quote them.

You don't understand the difference between poll-votes and posts. Just look at the following post, to see that the poll itself don't say much:

I don't feel like this op represents the site at all... Even reading a few comments and you'll come to this conclusion. Poor generalisation is poor.

 

I voted yes.

What do you think I got that number from, Sherlocke? From the poll.

 1/6 people on this site judging from the poll believe Nintendo have never made a bad game ever.

A huge chunk of those votes will just be trolling, either to try to make Nintendo fans look bad, or just to rile up people like you two. Practically every Nintendo fan in this thread has rejected the OP's claim.

I don't really care about the op's claim. Anyone with any sense knows that it is no where near the truth.

Mario Bros 2 (Lost Levels)

Never really understood why this is considered bad. I mean, it's certainly not great, but I didn't think it was bad per se. Is it cos of the juxtaposition with its industry-redefining predecessor that makes it look weak by comparison?

No.  Because it's a bad game, with exceedingly poor design choices.

Here are a few examples.  The springs bounce you insanely high which makes landing a jump correctly unnecessarily difficult, but that's not the problem I'm referring to.  One of the springs is towards the end of the level.  So I thought, hey what happens if you jump over the flag pole?  I did, and kept going excited as to what I would find.  What I found was a choice between a backwards warp pipe and a pit to jump into.  That'll teach me to explore.

Some levels feature gusts of winds that I believe change completely randomly.

Want to unlock all the content?  Sure.  To get to world 9 you have to beat every level of the game.  Fair enough.  Oh, and when you get there, you go down to one life, so no opportunity to learn the levels.  

And world A?  Well for that, you have to beat the game 8 times.  Which is just a tad excessive.  

Mostly though, it's just unfairly difficult.  There were plenty of hard NES games like Mega Man or Ninja Gaiden, but those always felt fair.  There were difficult parts (Ninja Gaiden actually may have been more difficult overall), but after getting through the few insane parts for level you had the satisfaction of slashing ninjas or blowing up robots and a chance to settle down.  There aren't really any fun parts of lost levels.

And for whatever reason, you could only play with one player now.

Nowadays, if you already know what you're getting, there's value in it for Mario fans that want a ridiculous version of Mario Bros.  And it's a neat extra for things like Lost Levels or Super Mario Deluxe (both versions were toned down).  And with save states, it's not all that bad.  If this was an expansion pack along the lines of Super Luigi U, it's have been a fine thing.

But back then, without much gaming media to speak of, there wasn't much of a way to know what you were getting. Since the first game is relatively easy, people who enjoyed the first might buy the second with expectations of a similar experience.  And then it's not.

Plus, there's really nothing new or novel about the game.  The graphics are basically identical, it doesn't feature any new songs (I don't think) and the only new "power up" is the poison Mushroom.  So you don't even have the motivation to push through the difficulty to find soething new.

Just a series of really poor design choices that make the game only appealing to a small niche.  



Fanboyism at its best. Or worst...

The amount of Nintendo fans that have disagreed with the OP is a pretty good indication that the fanbase is neither as blindly loyal nor as monolithic as stereotypes would have it.

Nope. The Op's opinion can't get much more extreme. Of course people will disagree.

One Nintendo fan thinks Nintendo's never made a bad game.
Basically every other one has said the opposite.
Can you explain how this shows that Nintendo's fanbase is blindly loyal?

So stop making insinuations about the Nintendo fanbase based on a single bad post.

Blatantly incorrect. But already you know that.

just kidding. But you cannot deny that they make a lot of mario and zelda. i dont mind cuz they are good but it would be nice if they could put better story in it instead of saving the damsel in distress or hyrule for no other reason that you have to do it
