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

Ah, to be a kid again. A time when l could watch Ren & Stimpy and be completely ignorant of what a creepy and twisted show it really was.

when people say Nintendo is for kids they mean their games are geared towards kids. call of duty can be played and enjoyed by kids but the game is clearly not meant for kids. call of duty doesn't become a kids games just because kids can play it. they don't take the kind of care Nintendo does to make the game kid appropriate. which is one of the thing that separates a kid game from an adult game.

A game like CoD is geared towards adults, and a game with Mario is geared towards kids, but when you look at who actually plays those games....

There really is no distinct boundary between a 'kids' game and an 'adults' game.

Nintendo makes very simple games.

Simple games are mostly played by kids and elders


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


So you are in fact admitting Nintendo games are simple and mostly played by kids and elders.

LOL

I actually had this happen at a party and so I dared the guy to beat the final level(and by final I mean World Crown-Crown) of Super Mario 3D World seeing as Mario is their "kiddiest" franchise. 110 lives later I had a broken Wii U Pro Controller

That's most Nintendo games. They're easy to beat, but to actual do everything? Most people wouldn't even try

Nothing wrong with simple. At least you get to play them without interference.

im sorry but regardless of if you feel nintendo is "kiddie" or not.

using pokemon metagame is not any kind of proof that it isnt kiddie.

thats like someone saying "cartoon network isnt for kids because they have adult swim".


Adult Swim is actually its own separate network, it just shares Cartoon Network'schannel.


thats what im saying, cartoon network is the name of the channel, a channel thats typically for kids, but at night, that same cartoon network channel for kids airs shows that arent meant for kids
