I just wasn't having fun.

Someone has to be out here fighting for Nintendo. I want video games to be awesome. I know that I can only rely on one company to do what needs to be done, and I see an army of shills approaching to tell everyone about how Nintenyearolds only play kiddy Nintentrash. You know what I'm talking about. If you talk about video games anywhere, there is some ***** who thinks Nintendo is going the way of the dinosaur and just has to tell you about it. So I am the antithesis of that, okay? I know for a fact that Nintendo is gonna destroy the competition from now until the year 2030, and I also know that the media is gonna hate them for the fact that they won't give them any sponsorship money like Sony and MS did. It's not gonna work anymore though because people are going to places like Youtube for opinions and reviews, and on Youtube the competitive market means that whoever is most objective and on-point naturally is popular. So get rekt honestly, I don't feel bad for any of you Nintendo-haters, I really really don't.
Whoever claims that Nintendo is dying or makes bad games or only makes games aimed at kids has no idea anyway, so I'll likely stop talking to them sooner rather than later. But Nintendo won't be destroying any competition, mostly because they are not directly competing with Sony and Microsoft anymore. They've moved into a sort of niche that is still big enough for Nintendo to be incredibly successful and popular. Certainly not a development I mind much.

If Nintendo isn't competing with Sony, care to explain this?



Looks to me like Sony literally copies every single thing Nintendo does because they are the market leader.

Sony is going to try to compete on Nintendo's terms and fail, period. Microsoft is gonna keep doing what they're doing because they're retarded, but Sony is going to go out of business my dudes.

You need to look at the games, not the hardware.

bloodborne is from soft's worst game but it's still more interesting than breath of the wild

actually every part of that is a lie but the sentiment is sincere

Looks like it's just a continuation of Sony's Remote Play.


Which I guess you could argue was a copy of Nintendo's objective failure, the Wii U. But that require claiming Sony intentionally copied a flop, and also that Nintendo is the only company to ever consider handheld gaming and that any handheld game console is just a rip off, because I don't know about you but whenever I look at an NGage I am revolted by how similar to the Game Boy it is

But really handheld gaming is in by way of how mobile gaming is in and touch screens for gaming is out and Nintendo isn't leading any of those marches by any means.





and everything is a rip off of the dreamcast

i don't believe i need to remind you this, but the entire touch screen thing was started by nintendo. before nintendo DS, touch screens were considered basically a joke in the tech world, it was like this gimmicky thing that nobody thought was really that useful. do you really forget all about palm pilot?

the way that nintendo DS used the touch screen was easily the most iconically disruptive move in the history of electronic tech period and has influenced EVERY aspect of our lives. nintendo does officially get credit for this disruption in tech. it's not about who invents it, or who does it first. it's about who popularizes an innovative product using it.

No it didn't, it was appropriated from Nintendo DS. If DS had not done it, all the tech firms would have surely not rushed to use it. I'm not even sure how you seem to think this is debatable. DS came out years before iphone (in this case you are actually referring to the ipod touch). Many journalists rushed to call this "the end of Nintendo handheld dominance"

Here is a very well written article that documents the entire DS 2004 reveal and the press coverage it got from sites like IGN which did a panel asking all of their journalists what they think of DS, and ALL but one of them said the DS would be a massive failure because of the touch screen and that PSP would take over the handheld market:

Good job, but it's the streisand effect. These good games can't be suppressed. The more they hate on Nintendo, the more people are driven to take an objective look and what they will find will rock the boat.

You're delusional if you think it was the DS and not the iPhone that revolutionized the touch screen's place in the tech industry.

I'm still pretty sure you mean to say Ipod touch, which clearly used a touch screen after ds did it.

the original ds was a joke to everyone over seven and not in the koolaid line though

and touch screen palm pilots existed - and were popular - long before the ds was even considered

the only thing nintendo influenced with its touch screen were later ds models

I'm not intellectually charitable enough to continue this retarded debate. I was debating you guys because of the shred of credibility I have for you, but if this continues onward in this irrational fashion I would lose all respect for your intelligence, which I don't wish for that to happen.
