Why are Nintendo systems always so mediocre third party wise?

Nintendo has a very specific style that they have adopted for all their games recently. And while it is indeed a good style, variety is a good thing.

But looking for games that aren't part of Nintendo's lineup that are actually interesting reveals the troubling nature of Nintendo's 3rd party support.

In fact, this is consistent with both the Wii and the DS. Which is odd considering how well they sold.

Why are decent third party titles so rare on the 3DS? I would almost say this is one area the PS Vita is better at. Almost.

Are they afraid of competing with Nintendo?

The DS is less so problematic in this regard than the 3DS and Wii are.

The 3DS isn't lacking in 3rd party support though...

The Wii and Wii U are, but the DS and 3DS have phenomenal support across the board.

So...what am I missing for me to apparently be wrong on this?

Please don't name any JRPGs.

There's Monster Hunter 3U and what else?

MH3U is awesome, but there has to be more than that.

This is really only true with the N64, Gamecube and Wii U.
