Nintendo is like The Smashing Pumpkins of the gaming world

They once made amazing, groundbreaking games that pioneered and innovated game design in lots of ways. Now the games they make are just fun and kind of remind us of the good ol' days of gaming, but ultimately pale in comparison to the best of what they have made.

The Smashing Pumpkins were the same for rock and alternative rock music, and while Billy Corgan's latest stuff (He is the current Smashing Pumpkins) is decent it just doesn't compare to the amazing first albums.

At least both of them will always have the legacy they left

Wii Sports was at least as groundbreaking as any other game Nintendo ever made.

3D Land is arguably on par with any of their earlier games for innovation too.


So no, it's really not true that Nintendo doesn't innovate anymore.

I disagree completely about Nintendo.

I have been a fan of Smashing Pumpkins since I started listening to music back in the 90s and they have had multiple problems, and at this point, do not appeal to me very much at all. To me they still make okay music, but not like before.

Nintendo on the other hand has remained consistently creative, with fun and innovative games, but since they go against the mainstream mold they are criticized all the time.

There is no denying some of their shortcomings ex: eShop, virtual console, lack of third party support, purchases not tied to an account, small battery life on gamepad, etc, but their games though are how I feel gaming should be.

My favorite games of the last generation were Mario Galaxy, Skyward Sword, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Metroid Prime 3, Brawl, Wii Sports, Wario Land, Return to Dreamland, and I could keep going.

PS3 and 360 had great games too, but I feel they completely pale in comparison to the library the Wii had, minus the disgusting amounts of shovelware.

tl;dr version: Nintendo still makes innovative and creative games as they always have, but I won't defend their shortcomings.
