Forums - Gaming Discussion - Who else is sad that Nintendo is winning/won this gen ?

"Hardcore" games sell really well a lot of the time, so I dunno what you're worried about. And of course the Wii offers a proper gaming experience.

Only thing i am sad about is that Microsoft made a crappy console and got away with it

Being a billion dollars worse off and having your brand image damaged isn't "getting away with it".

Damn. Beaten to the 5 stages of grief already.



There seems to be alot of wannabe-hardcores in this thread



Nothing to see here, move along

What exactly have the HD console brang? Higher cost development. And you say the Wii in the lead is bad.

You act like there are no hardcore games on the Wii and all we're going to see is Mario and Sonic or whatever.

Actually...I have no idea to properly respond to a post so ignorant, not to mention stupid.

He's allowed to post what ever, he's not flame baiting, he just wants to see whats people think.

Wii isn't exactly the Hardcore Console.  More people own a casual console then a Hardcore one.

I'm a Wii Fan, and there are some Traditional Games, but I am sad that I can't get more games that I really like on Wii.


Million is being melodramatic but he's doing it to get a point across.

Don't be such a Nintendo Fanboy where you trick yourself into thinking the Wii really is for everyone. You sound just as bad as the "ten year plan" people.



I would cite regulation, but I know you will simply ignore it.

Hardcore gaming is likely to never die but when the priority is on the casual gaming market support for traditional gaming is going to go down.

Hence my statement "At the end of the day it means less games like God Of War and more games like ... Mario & Sonic at the olympics"

That's not to say that games of God Of War will cease to exist but they'll come round less often than they did because the emphasis has shifted.


WTF are you talking about? Casual games existed since...ever. The PS1 and PS2 had them. Now you're just trying to bash the Wii.

Yo act like Nintendo won't make any more Zelda, or Mario, or Metroid, or Fire Emblem when they will.

The DS is targeting the same demographic as the Wii--you can't deny that--and it has so many core games. Guess what? IT TOOK TIME. The DS took 2 years+ for third parties to actually jump ship and put quality core games on it. Before that it had the SAME EXACT situation as the Wii - only games like Brain Training and soem casual crap but look where it's out now?

You know...I can't believe how ignorant some people are. You guys expect AAA quality games on the Wii IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS? AAA quality Wii games take 2-3 years to make. And remember, everyone thought the PS3 would win for quite some time.

Nintendo has not forgotten the hardcore. They're just focusing on casuals more and then releasing their core games. Do you REALLY expect a new Zelda/Mario/Metroid/Fire Emblem every damn year? No. They take years to develop.

Now stop your crying please. If you wanted to cry you should've done it a freaking year ago.

I dont know why sadness exists when there are games for everyone?

- 360 has a bunch of games the fans love and more coming

- PS3 has a bunch games the fans love and more coming

- Wii has a bunch of games the fans love and more coming

Who cares who is "winning"? If you are a consumer and you are enjoying your purchases then who is losing?

The Wii isnt gonna kill the 360 or PS3 so what is the issue?

ps2 and good old days don't belong in the same sentence. try replacing it with NES.

also, Wii fit and everything else were planned before total nintendomination started.

Personally i'm quite happy ninty is #1, as didn't like where the industry was headed.

 

PS2 = Best gaming console ever.

Damn straight.

 



I am a bit sad because I do not care for any Nintendo franchises personally, and the DS is really making the PSP suffer because the software is suffering because of how well the DS is doing

Oh boy, depression already? You'll soon be on your way to Acceptance in no time. Good for you!

(Still, looking around, there are plenty of Denial's and Anger's around. And from the looks of it, they have a while to go...)

Now if you excuse me, I'll be playing Okami and Boom Blox, and having fun.

I give this post an 11.
