I'm probably alone on this but I've felt for awhile now that Nintendo games look over saturated and more like anime. Is there a reason there aren't any Nintendo games that I don't see this way or is it just me?

Nintendo is excellent at putting atmosphere in their games. And you'll notice that in their games with darker tone like Twilight Princess and Metroid, the games aren't as colorful and cartoony. When they want a relaxing tone, they'll do something like Kirby: Epic Yarn or Skyward Sword. And when they want something with a humorous/fun-kind of tone to it, you will see something like Mario or Wind Waker.

No, it's not. Any art style gets old when it's overused - be it overly colorful or excessively brown and gray. That's why most developers make games with a wide variety of art styles. Unfortunately, Nintendo pretty much only has one art style with relatively minor variations. The cartoony and excessively saturated colors are fine some of the time, but Nintendo really needs to learn to do something different.

Hey if it ain't broke don't fix it. Nintendo games are supposed to be cartoony.
You don't like it play something else. Besides it's not like they've never tried gritty more serious styles. The Metroid series and Zelda Twilight princess says hello.

When Nintendo stops being Nintendo I stop supporting Nintendo.

Why don't you just bugger off and buy something you do like?

Doesn't look anything like anime.

Anyhow, no, you are not the only one who thinks that way, because Nintendo games are, by and large, saturated in color and cartoonish in style. It suits their games well and they have always been this way. I much prefer it to grey/brown ultra-realism. Having said that, my favorite style is actually more anime style, that was more common PS1/PS2 era, as well as still around in many JRPGs.
