C/D NintendoLand was a mistake
Everybody's havin' a good time with Poppy Bros!
D. I had tons of fun with Nintendo Land, it was certainly no mistake.
It was a perfect example of Nintendo showing off their console and controller along with plenty of replayability and a fantastic "ending" if you wanna call it that. Some of the best music I have heard in a while.
It was great. Worth the $20 you can get it for now.
I'm not familiar with the type of thing I'm seeing
I've only played it once but it was pretty damn fun. And considering its main purpose seemed to be showing off the Wii U's gamepad and what could be done with it, I'd say it did exactly what it was supposed to do.
I thought Nintendo Land was far better and more fun than Wii Sports could ever be.

Nothing that makes money is a mistake. Nintendoland made money and is therefore not a mistake.

There is a lot Nintendo could have done to make it more fun, enjoyable, and last longer, such as being online.
If I had arms, I would try harder.
I never said it wasn't fun. I'm saying it failed to be a hook for the console like Wii Sports was, and a sequel to Wii Sports would have been a much better hook.

No. It's arguably the best game for showing off said asymmetric gameplay that they were going for. The problem is that they didn't have a decent lineup to start with. Sony's looking like they'll get away with their very mediocre launch just because they've brought the right message along with it whereas Nintendo botched the Wii U and Nintendo Land presentations.
I still have to disagree with that. If you look at everything I said after the first sentence, what's important is that it showed off what the new Wii U controller can do in a fun way. That's exactly what it was intended for and exactly what it did. It even had the crossover aspect with stuff from a bunch of other series' the fans already liked.
A new Wii Sports would've ruined the Wii U's image even more as more of an expansion to the Wii than its own system. Besides, there wouldn't be much at all they could do with the tablet thing. If their starting game hardly even used the thing, why would anyone be convinced it's worthwhile?
And did people really even like Wii Sports that much? It's not like it sold so well because it was so universally popular, it just came with the system for free. And what made it so special was that it demonstrated what made the motion controls in the wiimote so special. It did that just fine, and that's the end of it. Unless Nintendo's got some new type of motion controls or something to show off in the future, Wii Sports is probably done.
