Why did Nintendo sell true gamers out for the casuals...have they forgotten...

Newsflash, kiddo. Nobody in the gaming industry is doing exceptionally well.

The 89-year old Susan you speak of is the one who bought you that NES to play Mario on.

Quit being self-righteous.

Hardcore gamers are too finicky to please and whine too much. Why else do you think Sony and Microsoft are following Nintendo's lead?

Except casuals made Nintendo, Nintendo was never about hardcore gamers.

World of warcraft is a perfect example. People complained Wrath of the lich king was too easy so Blizzard made the next expansion "hard" again but casuals cried and now look at the game. Hand holding and saving pandas from sad feelings.

This. The term "hardcore" wasn't really applied to gaming until about the last decade or so. Nobody cared about being "hardcore" in the days of the third and fourth generation.

89-year old Susan back in the day would play hardcore games because those were the only kind of games around. Gaming wasn't for wimps back then. My grandmother would school all these new gen "gamers".

That'll change in a few months. The game industry is like a ride. You reach a high one second (PS2, Wii) and then come barreling back down (PS Vita, Wii U)

He's saying the Wii and PS2 were great but Sony and Nintendo dropped the ball with the Vita and Wii U.
