Is Nintendo becoming like EA?

Ugh, I know. I'm even reminded of that glorified remake of Super Mario All Stars on the Wii; but since I never owned a Wii, I wasn't very vocal about it. But damn, Nintendo does not care for (or have much respect for) it's own playerbase.
I bet there may be some thinking right now "Don't like it, don't buy it!"
That is a genius go-to argument in this situation! :-D
I absolutely love having no options after having spent money on a Wii U (in regards to classic games). I guess I won't be buying any of them then, as Nintendo shows no signs of doing anything differently.
After all of this, I haven't even mentioned their reluctance to put games of other systems on the 3DS instead of JUST NES and GBC. I'm sure the damn thing is capable of playing SNES and GBA games, at least. Put them on, damn.
Oh and, they need to release more games at a time instead of like, two a week; and that's if we're lucky. And most times, they are games no one cares about.
^And not even the good NES GBC games
Anybody else notice the virtual console is almost devoid of RPGs? Where's Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy and Pokemon on the virtual console?
I will say this, the Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC is a godawful case of nickel and diming.
They called you exotic. Which is just people talk for awesome. Which you are.
^And not even the good NES GBC games
The lack of third party rpgs are an issue between Nintendo, the consumers and whoever owns those ips. Pokémon isn't offered to prevent competition with remakes sold on their latest handhelds.
Also, the re-releases are good for those who haven't played those games. But Nintendo isn't like EA, since it isn't third party.

The remakes are good for those who haven't played and those who already have. Regardless, you cannot defend the prices; if you even attempt to, you're clearly more loyal to the brand than you are to the games. Also, nice side stepping; we know Nintendo isn't third party, he didn't mean it like that and you know it. Their practices are starting to mirror EA, he said.
I shouldn't even have to point that out, yet I did.
That's pretty much a lie, Red/Blue/Yellow and Gold/Silver/Crystal aren't even on the 3DS, and besides they're still drastically different games.
They didn't start online pass but gets blamed for it. You say DRM in games like simcity but what other games have their been? BF4 was bad, but how often does that happen?
That's why I mentioned "Disclaimer" in my first post, because I can't recall who started some of those, but EA certainly jumped on.
In the end though, I see that you and I have different opinions, which is fine. I personally just don't find Nintendo to be anywhere near my personal level of dislike for EA.

I find it funny that EA is so synonymous with ripping people off that if you abuse your customers in any way it seems like you're riding their coattails.
Anyway, Nintendo is clearly starting to experiment with various forms of price gouging. It's not a huge surprise, virtually every company did this when they found out that HD development simply isn't very profitable. Of course, it's probably a short-sighted move in general, since a lot of what people liked about Nintendo was that they didn't do that stuff, but what are executives for but to make poor decisions that hurt the long-term viability of the company.

I think Gamefreak have said before that Pokemon isn't being offered because the GB VC doesn't currently allow for multiplayer, which makes sense to me since Pokemon was kinda the killer app for the link cable.
As a way around that though, I've been hoping for Pokemon Yellow or Crystal to come out as a 3D Classic...please make it happen, Gamefreak.

Well it's a crappy reason because it could be easily fixed.
