My vision of Nintendo has changed. I see them as the only company in the market willing to go full force with idea. They eventually get games to work using these ideas and I end up enjoying. It takes a while for amazing games to be released for their systems, but I don't mind the wait.


Right there. No one else is stepping out of their comfort zones; they all want to play it safe. I am weary of safe. As much as I am frustrated with Nintendo, I applaud their willingness to do what the others will not, especially when the others just end up copying Nintendo anyway, such as with adding motion control after mocking the Wii for so long, and then admitting with their actions that Nintendo was right all along. I want different. Gaming is feeling too stale to me after more that 3 decades.


The only one playing it safe is Nintendo. They are not competing head to head with Sony or Microsoft. They are not going all out with online or graphics.

Keeping the same the same and adding a "U" is not innovating or taking a risk. Nintendo is the one taking the least amount of risk and playing it the most safe.

The ONLY company that has anything to worry about is Sony. Their gaming division is tanking, their stocks have been downgraded to junk status, and the vita is a complete failure. They can't afford another ps3 so they are in deep trouble this gen. Could be their last console.


I don't know about you but I'd rather have a low selling console with good games then a high selling console with crappy gimmicks forced in every game and very few worthwhile games.

To be fair, people do have reason to worry about Sony Computer Entertainment's state right now. Unlike all the Nintendo doom crying.


This. Sony is in a lot of trouble as a whole more so than Nintendo is (& more than just gaming).

It took them 6 years (Skyward Sword) to actually implement motion controls into a game that wasn't a glorified minigame collection. Many of their games just had waggle or avoided it all together. This is already happening with the Wii U. Mario doesnt use it outside of one mode, Pikmin 3 just offers a map on it.

Nintendo just keeps using gimmicks to stay relevant, but sadly they just aren't what they were. I'm sure fanboys will come in here and attack me, but this is coming from a long time Nintendo fan. Keep defending them if it makes you feel better about your purchase, but I'm done with them. I look forward to when some real next gen consoles come out.


I agree 100% and I was a die hard Nintendo fan, until I saw the light and let myself buy other systems. Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice...


lol at thinking most of us only have one system.

Looking at metacritic in terms of AAA games. Wii Only had 14 games over 90%, now lets compare that to the PS3 which came out at the same time which has 44 games over 90%.

Most of all the games you listed were pure and utter crap. Good try though.
