Does anybody actually "mains" Nintendo consoles?

#21squatch22Posted 1/31/2013 3:15:57 AM
Never.
Always had at least 1 other console.

Well, mostly.

NES.

SNES and MD.
N64 and PS1.
GC and Dreamcast and PS2 and Xbox.
Wii and 360.

Handheld wise, yes.

Console wise? No.

The only non Nintendo console I ever owned was a Sega Mega Drive. so... yeah I 'main' Nintendo (whatever that means)

Edit: I don't count PCs as a console, but I also play sometimes games on that one like Point'n'Click adventure games, and some other games that are not on Nintendo Consoles, like Assassins Creed (except 3), Prince of Persia and the Anno Series

There should be a poll. Yes, I have always "mained" Nintendo. I've always had plenty to play as well.

SNES: DKC 1 and 2, Looney Toons B-ball, The Lion King (I was young and didn't have much variety)

N64: Mario 64, Kart, DK Racing, Jet Force Gemini, Starfox, DK 64, OoT, Waverace

GCN: Metroid Prime, Prime 2, Sunshine, Wind Waker, Prince of Persia, F-Zero, Ikaruga, P.N.03, Smash Bros., Call of Duty etc.

Wii: Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Metroid Prime 3, Other M, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, Red Steel 2, Kirby, Xenoblade, The Last Story, Smash Bros., Lostwinds, World of Goo, Bit.trip, Sin and Punishment 2

The lists could go on, but you get the idea. I've played plenty of Halo, Guild Wars, Fable, Borderlands, League of Legends etc., but for the most part my gaming is on Nintendo consoles.

I feel bad for anyone that only had Nintendo consoles, they missed out on so many games especially from the PS1 PS2 and PS3.

I main Nintendo with a PC secondary.

I do play games released for other consoles (and PC), but I don't see any point in purchasing other consoles when the games are usually also on PC, or I can go play them at a friend's house.


on a side note: Wii U has a growing install base, expect the online community to get bigger as that install base grows. Also expect multiplat games to look better as developers get more familiar with the Wii U

I usually battery it hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Sorry. GC was my main, Wii was my main until I got a job and had the money to get an xbox after trying my brother's xbox.
Wii U will likely be my main even though I can afford other systems.
Personally, I think it's easy for people to say buy every system but however you look at it, games are an unnecessary expense so I would rather pick one system that I prefer and stick to it until I feel another one is necessary and has games I really want to play.

Fanboys are a cancer to gaming but Sony fanboys are a particularly aggressive and repulsive form.

I also haven't had a Nintendo console be my "main" since SNES. These days my Wii collects dust along with my old PS2. And my 360 gets played with every now and then. My "main" these days is my PC.
