Actually the poll indicates that only about 26% of gamefaqs users who partake in polls think Nintendo is stale. 74% don't.


This.

Then there are people like me who pretty much are done with most Nintendo IPs - I grew up on them, they are awesome, but I'm just not so interested in that style anymore. I might pick up one or two of them when I get the Wii U, but what has me excited about it is Monolith Soft's new game, the new Atlus project, whatever else might show up at E3.

So Nintendo is -fine- so long as they continue to produce exceptional titles in their classic franchise IPs while also exploring new games. They're doing that, and the poll number actually show the range of these opinions with most people at least interested in the Wii U - far more than those that think Nintendo is "stale." Poll reading ftw.

Well, POTD results also report that over 50% of the users here live with their parents, and roughly 1/3 of them aren't even old enough to drink. (US)

Funny how certain POTD results can wind up skewing other POTD results...

I lost faith in Nintendo years ago. I keep wanting to them to com out of their comfort zone but they just won't. =(

We still have the future to see if this changes.

Most people picked the last option.


Actually, that's wrong. More people picked that option, yes, than any of the other individual choices, but if you combine "I already own a Wii U" and "Yes, those are the games I was waiting for," it's about the same. Then, figure in the fact that the "maybe" choice was still positive, and the poll, in no way, is showing any confirmed anti-Nintendo slant. It actually looks pretty good for them.


Seriously, the master of spin.

YES answers combine to 25% (and are 40% of the poll)

NO answers combine to 52% (and are the same 40% of the poll)

NEITHER YES OR NO is the final 22% (and is not "positive")

That's like saying "Well, HD consoles sold 140 million. Wii sold 90 million. Clearly, Wii was last place by a mile."

That doesn't work then, it doesn't work here.

You are simply out of your mind.

Because GameFAQS is stupid.
Make a poll like that anywhere else, compare the results.
