call me crazy but nintendo needs to get with the times

#1tremain07Posted 4/1/2013 5:33:12 AM
their characters need to start developing personalities, voices and be more fleshed out

Link doesn't feel like a person at all he needs freaking talk for once and have a personality beyond the standard shonen cliche of protecting everyone and everything

as for the pokemon series I would like the main character to start talking as well it works for Fire Emblem so why not pokemon?

You know there's a problem when out of all the major nintendo characters the only one who seems to have developed in recent years is Luigi

he's got a voice, dialog, personality and character development and he's more beloved then Mario for it

whos with me?

Shoehorning in personalities too games seems redundant.

How would Pokemon be better if the protagonist spoke ? It's about catching Pokemon.

They have games that have big character development and interesting stories like Kid Icarus and Fire Emblem, but then there are games like Mario that just don't need it.

You sure Mario doesn't need it? like really sure? because where I stand playing the same story over again with barely any real reason to do so is gonna bore the audience especially the ones who have played mario for decades its one of the many complains about the new super mario brothers series

mario himself is very very boring

Even though Mario shouldn't be story based I thought NSMBU was garbage. The premise was terrible and everything just seems recycled. I wish they would be more like CoD. CoD sticks to a formula but vastly improves an expands it everytime whereas NSMBU thinks adding a squirrel suit is taking it to the next level.

Are you really serious saying that Mario is a rehash and COD is original? I really have to think about this. It might just be a cleverly crafted troll post.

It's really not necessary at all, except for maybe Link.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

Explain to me how Modern Warfare 3 improved the formula at all.
