Screw What The Media Says, Don’t Give Up On Nintendo. Ever !
NINTENDO DOES WHAT NO OTHER COMPANY CAN
Nintendo makes game’s that put fun and interesting gameplay ideas front and center over game graphics and system horsepower. This has been the case since Nintendo’s first ever home console back in the 80’s and still to this day no one does gameplay like Nintendo. Here is why Nintendo will be just fine and the Wii U will be a success even in the face of competition from the likes of Sony and Microsoft.
LIKE I SAID, NINTENDO DOES FUN AND GAMEPLAY LIKE NO ONE ELSE
Many Have Tried to Imitate but can never duplicate
“Systems that generate pretty pictures by themselves aren’t selling propositions, and all you need to do is look at the last generation to see the evidence.”
That was a quote from Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime taken from a recent article in Kotaku where the NOA President spoke on Nintendo’s beliefe that new and exciting experiences are what drive the industry not graphics. Guess what? He’s right.
Look at the original Wii. Nintendo’s last home console was vastly underpowered compared to the 360 and Ps3 yet it completely destroyed them in the sales department. Why? It’s Simple. The Wii offered gamers something that they had never experienced before. The Original Wii offered experiences that were new, innovative, fun and refreshing. In the case of the Wii U, Nintendo has admittedly had a tough time conveying the benefits of the Wii U’s Gamepad to those who have never held one in their hands before. On top unclear messaging, the Wii U has lacked meaningful first party content which is the main cause for sluggish sales of the console.
I’m excited to announce that the drought is over! Nintendo has just cut the price of the Wii U, making it 100 dollars cheaper than its closest competitor and has also dropped holiday release dates for many of its highly anticipated first party titles. Titles like Super Mario 3d World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and the Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD all represent that classic, patented Nintendo charm and will definitely contribute to moving Wii U’s off store shelves come this holiday season.
While Nintendo’s competitors will offer you the chance to jack cars and commit murder, stab people in the throat Roman Centurion style, and score head shots, Nintendo will deliver something that none of those experiences will quite match. Nintendo’s games often reminds me why i play games in the first place. Often times when i boot up a Nintendo title a certain level of nostalgia kicks in and a smile begins to form across my face. It’s not just nostalgia that keeps me coming back for more, either. It’s Nitntedo’s uncanny ability to keep reiterating their franchises with new gameplay ideas making them feel like new and fresh gaming experiences. What other developer in the gaming industry can consistently put out the quantity of games that Nintendo does with the level of quality that Nintendo titles demand? Anyone? No? I didn’t think so. while Sony and Microsoft are trying to lure gamer’s in with the definitive “Dude-Bro” experiences, Nintendo is aiming to deliver an emotional experience that in the end beyond all of the smoke and mirrors will resonate with gamer’s the most. That experience, my friends is pure Joy. Delivered the way only Nintendo can. Unmatched and unrivaled. This alone is the reason Nintendo will be just fine going forward into this upcoming console generation. Nintendo will be just fine.
As always, tell me what your thoughts are on the subject and remember to let me know what make Wii U Mad !?
