Is the direction Nintendo is taking driving modern gaming into the ground?

Let me say I'm not someone here just to bash Nintendo or the U--I was just expecting more from both. I remember when I first got my SNES and Mario games as a kid. Remember loving the Gamecube and Sunshine. Do you remember what people said about them? Does Nintendo? Most people thought the Gamecube had the best graphics despite the hardware shortcomings that wouldn't allow for much improvement. I remember owning all three, saying PS2 had the best games, Xbox had the best system, and GC had the best graphics. Now, this would be quite easy to fix... Match the hardware next gen. Somewhere along the line though, Nintendo decided to change gaming itself so that it could prosper. Now that it worked, the rabid fanboys gladly snap at anything in sight, and they know this. They could sell you a blanket wrapped around a ball and tell you to play a REAL game. This real game involves MOTION CONTROL VOICE-ACTIVATED BALL POWER. Also known as catch. Gaming needs hardware to be in the same ballpark so multiplats are big and wide, and the focus remains on who has the best games, not graphics or power. This is when exclusives shine as well, and Nintendo would shine from this. If they dropped all the -NEW- gimmicks, they wouldn't have to worry about how their ball applies to the game. They'd worry about the game. Am I wrong?

If you really want to know, compare the number of studios that closed while making games for Nintendo consoles, with the number of studios that closed while making games for other consoles.

Thanks to the wiis success we get abominations like Move and Kinect. Nintendo is still moving in that direction and Sony and MS probably will as well.

It's really not long broski. You could skim it instead of being an NDF grunt.

Turning games into a blanket and a ball. That would be the visual.

paragraphs are your friend, it makes posts MUCH easier to read if you break them up every few lines. And you pretty much lose credibility with the ndf quip.

So since Ninty copied it, it's a good idea? It isn't...
