Is it safe to say the "Glory Days" of Nintendo was the Nintendo 64 era?
The reason I jumped ship to sony was because a lot of SNES franchises and third party I loved went there.
Pretty much how I got started too.
Gotta say, this topic has the most hate I've EVER seen for the N64.
I don't want to sound like I'm hating on the system. I have quite a few fond memories of it, and to this day I still adore some games, like Mario 64, as all-time favorites.
I just feel it gets a little bit more credit than it really deserves, and for a lot of people it was their first real console and first real gaming memories, and so it's all rose-colored glasses. The N64 had it's issues, it was a distant second in that generation, and it's just got several superior systems above it, including others by Nintendo.
I don't think you'll find many of us who lived through the NES and SNES days claiming the N64 trumps them without it being controversial.

But none of the CD games were developed by Nintendo. They were only licensed.
The "glory days" was whenever you were twelve.
No, its when they were at their best. Most would say the 90s where when they were at the top of their game.
Im pretty damn sure if they were completely awesome now, more people would say that, but they are just in safe sequel mode, which isnt exactly how they were in the 90s.
Its not nostalgia, they actually were better back then. The games are all higher rated, and they were pretty much the only thing that matter. Now Nintendo has slipped up enough to make room for Sony and MS to both be very successful.
