Nuff said. At the end of the day, we buy systems for games. Sony & Microsoft systems might have more features, better specs, stronger third party support, better online interfaces, but there's one thing they will never have. You know why you bought a Wii U.

Woah woah woah woah woah.


Zelda is an action-adventure, which is different than adventure.

Metroid is also action-adventure.

Smash Bros. is a fighter, which is different than a brawler. God of War is a brawler.

I'll give you Smash Bros, I resist calling it a fighter because of games like DoA, Tekken etc.

But Metroid is a FPS in the subgenre of action adventure.
Zelda is an adventure in the subgenre of action.

I am sure he means the Metroid Prime series which a lot of other fps games have been influenced by.

stronger third party support


And that's the reason I'm going to buy a PS4, likely at launch.

I don't like the direction Nintendo is taking Mario and Zelda, Donkey Kong has gotten 1 new game in the main series in the past decade, Metroid is more or less dead at this point in Nintendo's eyes, and Smash Bros, while fun, simply isn't a game I'm interested in playing in the long term, especially when I can just as easily put in Brawl or Melee and have a fun time with my friends that way.

The only two games that have even slightly interested me in the WiiU's up coming library is the Wind Waker HD and Pikmin 3. The PS4 offers me InFamous, Knack, Final Fantasy XV, and it's PS3 Cloud-Based library (including the PS2 and PS1 games as well).

Third Party support is a system seller for the majority of gamers. Only the most die hard of Nintendo Fans are okay with being passed by on amazing titles for this year's latest Mario title, or getting a console title every 4-5 years.

Best RTS: Nintendogs 2

I think you mean Pikmin 3 for best RTS. Another game you won't find on another console.
