How would you respond to the "Nintendo only makes games for kids" argument?

Typically, Nintendo games, even at their most mature, are appropriate for kids 14 and under. But the rating on the box has nothing to do with a games' marketing, And at the end of the day, marketing and gameplay truly determine a games' target audience.

Nintendo makes very simple games.

Simple games are mostly played by kids and elders

Classics never get old, nor is it possible to out grow them.
Also, it's better than the Paystation 4 and Extortionbox One.

Simple at first, but then you find a lot of technical depth and challenge packed in the mechanics, level design, and features. Nintendo games are easy to pick up, hard to master.

Because everything else either holds your hand or plays the game for you.

I've never heard of this before. Video games are toys, so they are all made for children. None more so than the other.

Simple? Stereotypical misguided assumption.

You'd probably eat those words if you attempted to comprehend full understanding of playing Pokemon competitively meta game and variables.

The pokemon metagame is very simple actually. There is a lot math involved but once someone else calculates it (and someone always does) the metagame settles into a simple and predictable pattern.
