Nintendo Never Going To Make a "realistic" game?

Nintendo seems to be the only publisher who has yet to develop a Photo-realism game. I guess they are not trying to compete with SCEA in that field. But I would love to personally see a new IP from Nintendo that is not a cartoon like video game. Not saying that Nintendo doesn't make awesome games it just more awesome if they would try something new in art style. The new Zelda looks animeish so does Xenoblade and all the other games that have like humans lol. Nothing looks real, it just looks great as a video game. Kinda like Toy Story 3 doesn't look real but it movie lokkssssssssssssssss awesome.

We see Microsoft, Ubisoft,Sony and ect reach into the Nintendo field with Fable, LittleBig Planet and Rayman.

Could Nintendo beat Sony or Microsoft in making a realistic game? I do not think so. Maybe one day Nintendo will surprise me.

*sorry if I am using the wrong words, The type of game I am speaking of is Assassin Creed, Mass Effect, Uncharted...etc. type game.


What do you expect from a company that doesn't even know how Xbox Live works.

I hope they never do. "Realism" is the bane of artistic creativity in my opinion.

Says who? Realism doesn't have to be gritty or dark, there are plenty of real life examples that are very beautiful.

There's plenty of variety in the real world, so why can't realistic graphics offer that same variety?

I would love to see Nintendo create a new IP that is in the same vein as Uncharted/Tomb Raider. It wouldn't even need to be a shooter, just focus on the thrill of adventure that those two games nail down so well. Push the Wii U to the limits with it.

Correction: Disney does indeed make r-rated movies, if "other companies" is own by Disney then Disney made the movie.


Kinda like when Monolith Soft makes a game and its still a Nintendo game because Nintendo owns Monolith Soft.


I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, but this post proves you are either a troll or just stupid.

None of Disney's subsidiaries make R-rated movies. Only their affiliates.

I'll put it into simple terms for you. A subsidiary is equivalent to Monolith. An affiliate is equivalent to Platinum games making Bayonetta for the Wii U.


I am PRETTY sure I can find a company owned by Disney that made or makes R-rated movies.
Disney owns like half of the media world, I am sure I will find a movie hold on...


Disney's first R-rated film, Down and Out in Beverly Hills, is released under the Touchstone banner

Touchstone is WHOLLY owned by Disney.


Fair enough. I wasn't aware Disney actually owned Touchstone.

Having said that, if you are counting subsidiaries then Nintendo HAS published M-rated games. Eternal Darkness springs to mind. Not to mention Rare was a second-party developer during the N64 era that published many M-rated games. And the example you gave of Xenoblade. That's a T-rated game. There are plenty of examples of second party developers making T and M rated games for Nintendo in the same way Touchstone does for Disney.



I see that you still don't get it. Touchstone isn't second party Touchstone is FIRST PARTY.
Disney OWNS TOUCHSTONEEEEE

The point of this conversation is Nintendo Developing a different type of game.

When I was talking about Xenoblade Chronicle X(not being realistic/anime-like)... guess what that's FIRST PARTY. And I don't know how you got hung up on ESRB rating. You are all over the place. You seem like you can't even grasp the discussion. Go back and RE READ it carefully, then think then post.


Excluding Rare, all the games I posted WERE developed first party, and I edited my post to remove Rare but I guess you had already read and responded to my post before that. Eternal Darkness and Geist were both M-rated first party games.

But I still fail to see how it matters whether Nintendo develops the M-rated games, or someone like Rare, who only made games for Nintendo at the time, does. It's still M-rated games only available on a Nintendo console.

They can and they should. But when people refer to realism, they're not typically arguing that games need to feature more realistic foliage. Usually it involves criticizing those aspects that make a game a game. Things that don't make sense by any logical standard, but they go unquestioned in the context of a videogame. It's that fourth-wall barrier between the player and reality I'm talking about, not the degree to which landscapes are accurately portrayed (because Nintendo already does those things fairly well).

It's more realistically styled than most of Nintendo's franchises but it's still very much stylized, comparisons have been made to Fable.

I thought we were referring to realism in the sense of graphics. Realistic mechanics are definitely not what I'd want in a game, it's probably one reason why I find popular sports titles like Madden to be so boring.

Nintendo is just not into big productions like AC or GTA or Uncharted, imitating real life.

TC you mention Xenoblade Chronicles but you fail to mention that Xenoblade has incredibly detailed environments and that the characters are stylized. This is a design decision and not anything dealing with hardware specs. There are some games that have a higher level of photo-realism as well, look at Ninja Gaiden Razor's Edge. Its very stylized but looks more realistic, and Nintendo published the Wii U version. Also TC Metroid Prime invalidates the argument. The Metroid Prime Trilogy is still visually impressive today even in SD.
