C/D Nintendo has hurt gaming as much as its helped

Now theres no denying they helped bring video games back but recently they have also hurt gaming. Motion controls were a cancer it pretty much doomed the wii and went on to ruin the ps3 and 360 for a while as they attempted to cash in on the success of the wii. Crap motion control games were made for all systems and created a disastrous influx of casual homosapiens. Nintendo is also very dated hardware wise as shown with the wii u im sure if it were up to them we would still be playing on cartridges.

Motion controls are great, and most of the Wii games using them were as well. In addition to being somewhat fun, they also expanded the market to casual gamers.

On top of that Nintendo is the very reason video games have an industry today, the only way to hurt gaming in a way opposite to that is to kill the industry.

Nintendo hurt gaming by making it too restricted, but they have delivered too much goodness to be ignored.

Well I'm sure you love paying over $100 to get a complete gaming experience then. If anyone still understands the fundamental essence of video games it's Nintendo. Motion controls are the one of the next logical steps in gaming, prettier graphics don't offer anything to the gaming experience.

Graphics aren't that important, but saying they don't add anything at all would be wrong.
