I'm white, but I will admit, the Japanese always "get" video games

Yes, it is most important that a system like the Wii U succeed worldwide, but especially in the West where the market is the largest.

There's no question that Nintendo is making games to appeal to the American market. Mario=Italian. Link=blonde hair blue eyes. These are not Japanese characters. They are Western characters that resemble Americans. That's Nintendo's goal and it always has been, with most of their humanoid characters: to resemble white people.

Now, having said ALL of that, the truth is that the Japanese market is still what matters most. The Japanese always have and always will make the best video games. I could type out a list for you, but we all know: Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Metroid, Starfox, Pikmin, etc.

Sure, there are those exceptions of excellent games made by white people (Goldeneye 64, the Donkey Kong games, etc.) but the vast majority of the best games are made by the Japanese.

With all of this in mind, let us please hope the Wii U does well. The Japanese make better games. I'm white, but I like Japanese games. That's why I want the Wii U to succeed: so there will be more great games in the future.

Still racist.

Why not go on and on about other stereotypes like Asians being good at math or Black people always being good at basketball?

If you think Link having blond hair means anything you've never watched an anime.

As soon as you make any statement in the vein of "I'm not trying to be racist" everything that follows makes you seem like a bigot. Just saying.

Their top ten selling games are Wii sports which has no specific appearance, and Mario related games. Zelda isnt even top ten. Mario, a small fat pudgy guy was the highest selling video game of all time. Hes an underdog character.

Lol seriously.

Also, I hate it when people try and claim that Japanese media (games, anime, whatever) is superior to Western stuff, and vice-versa. There is a tremendous amount of quality to be found on both sides of the world.

Nintendo is Japanese. Japanese are better in every way. I don't know why they forfeited the wars. America of Nintendo is probably the only worthwhile developer from the West.

Mario is clearly superior. Look at sales of pizza in America.
