    Nintendo - Just go software please

    Am I the only one who wishes Nintendo would just give up on making bullshit systems and just port their IPs to Xbox and Playstation? I'll give them some credit, they definitely found a way to stay alive with Wii when their hardware was far behind Sony and Microsoft. But the Wii U... just sucks. Ever since the Gamecube I haven't bought a Nintendo system - they just don't get a great assortment of games.

    I want Zelda, Mario and DK on my Xbox One/PS4.


    Sorry, just hate every time I read about a new Zelda game coming out and know I won't be playing it because I'd have to essentially pay $300 for the system and the game.

    Only because the primary gaming crowd was divided 50/50 between 360/PS3... and you damn well know that. This was the FIRST time since the dawn of the NES that there was no clear dominant console leader that got all the 3rd party support drawn towards.

    In regards to the OP - I've been saying that for about 10 years now...

    I'd rather have them dump their home console resources and put them into making an awesome new generation of Zelda, Metroid and (gasp!) maybe a new IP or 3....

    I'd rather love to see, once again, another GENERATION DEFINING Legend of Zelda game on a PS4/Xbone than yet another mediocre Zelda game on the Wii-U.

    I have about the same feeling with the Wii. When it was first announced back years ago and the controller style I said to myself that I probably wouldn't get one as I find that controller system not fun at all. I went with a XBox 360 at the time because I was able to get one for about $100 used, with nothing wrong with it. PS4 I haven't gotten because of price yet and no real point with PS4 coming soon.

    It wasn't until lately I've been helping a friend of mine with some of their games that I got a feel for the Wii's Controller and man was it terrible. For example was playing Tomb Raider Anniversary on the PC with the XBox Controller then I went to the Wii and was having the worst time ever. Having to constantly move your reticle so you can fire, move to do this and that just awful.

    Problem is some of the games for the Wii only I would enjoy if I got to play them, just that I can't bring myself to buy the console and actually use it. So I'm just left with the DS and play what I can from there.

    So, here I was thinking that all the hate was finally going to shift towards something more meaningful, like Microsoft single-handedly ruining the classical concept of console gaming (that Nintendo helped create.)

    But NOPE. We seem still have this blind, ignorant hatred.
    I mostly play fighting games these days.

    People looking like this: , because they want to play Nintendo games without having to buy a new console isn't exactly a new phenomenon. They're not going anywhere anytime soon.

    I like the Wii U a lot, and I don't really understand the hate aside from "bad hardware" (as if that defines a good gaming platform). It is however hurt by the severe lack of good exclusives. It's been out for like, what, 6-7 months and the best game so far is probably Lego City Undercover or Arkham City: Armored Edition.

    Wii was really nice when companies stopped treating like a gimmick and started treating it like a console....

    ...you mean when they left Wii development and started working on PS3/Xbox 360 console games?

    Imo, it's because Sqauresoft and Enix moved to PS after SNES (though DQ 9 was made for Nintendo DS, 2 previous, non handhold console parts were released on PS1/2), as well as better part of Tales and Star Ocean were on PS1-3 rather than on Nintendo DS or Wii. Same for other titles.

    So buying new console just for 1-2 games isn't really great.

    You know what? Fuck exclusives period. Every game should be on ever console.

    Seriously, I despise the notion of games being locked to one console or another arbitrarily. Unless there's some legitimate hardware reason, put it out on everything.

    It sucks that you're upset OP, but that's how a fan of any exclusive franchise feels about said exclusive franchise. Exclusives suck.

    ...how, in any way/shape/form can you call this "hate"?

    Frustration... possibly... but not "Hate". Hate is what you got when MS did their insane stuff. Nobody is saying "EFF YOU NINTENDO FOR RELEASING GAMES ON A SYSTEM NOBODY WANTS"...

    If anything they're trying to HELP NINTENDO by encouraging them to be what makes they were originally remembered for... damn good classic IP games. Sure - they made kick-ass systems... back in the 8-bit/16-bit days. Nowadays though, they honestly don't. They're nice... but one can make the ultimate atari 2600 system but it's still stuck by the specs.

    Nobody is asking Capcom, Konami, Naughty Dog, Valve, Bethesda, Insomniac, Blizzard or any other high-profile gaming company to make a console system. Why? Because they're just damn good at making games...

    Honestly, Nintendo is far better at making games than consoles these days. I'd rather have them drop the console crap off and put more focus into their games. Hell man... they can even keep developing the 3DS like handhelds for now and HELL, even tie the damn 3DS into Xbone/PS4 gameplay compatibility the same way the Vita does with the PS4 if they want. I mean, how cool would that be?

    I don´t see anything wrong with Nintendo´s hardware O__o...Doesn´t have graphics comparable to PS4 or Xbox One, well I´ve never cared for graphics and they don´t make a game... Wii Controller has been one of the most confortable controllers I´ve ever used. And I like the wii U Gamepad since it makes it more confortable for inventory/minimap stuff like that in games.

    Asides from that, what is wrong with their hardware? It´s backward compatible and can play used games without a fee, also doesn´t require a fee to go on internet. Seems good to me.

    If you think I hate Nintendo I doubt you read my whole post. The opposite really. I don't like their new systems though.

    So buying new console just for 1-2 games isn't really great.
    That's where I'm standing...

    The only game I care about for any Nintendo console at this point is probably Zelda, and the most recent ones have been VERY mediocre at best. They haven't made an honestly good Metroid game since Super Metroid IMO (Sorry, I hate that Prime crap...) and Mario has been kinda "meh" to me sans the recent throw back to the old-school side scrolling Wii one, which was great. Smash is great, but really only with friends - and my friend with the party pad tends to have that game.

    So, for me and probalby a LOT of other people, it's not worth buying a $300 console for just 2 games. Used to be that way... but standards change. As much as my heart loves Zelda... Games designed like the current Zeldas today can't hold a candle (no pun intended) towards a massive open-world games like Skyrim. I look at Skyrim and just DREAM of the possibilities they could do with a Zelda game in that format (miles and miles of interesting beautiful open-world adventure, secrets and dungeons and towns galore, ect...).

    But we can't have that... because Nintendo is more fixated on spitting out as many 1st party IP games for their dying home console systems in an attempt to keep them on life-support due to barely no 3rd party interest instead of actually making better potential profit via taking their time and creating GENERATION DEFINING versions of their IPs for other systems.

    Agreed. Nintendo games are about GAMEPLAY not graphics. Better hardware would not make a better game. Idk how people could think putting it on xbone or ps4 would make it better. Nintendo has never been for graphics and doesn't need to be. Gameplay makes a GAME not graphics.
