Anyway, i know they innovate but 30+ years. Can't they come up with something new to replace Mario? I don't wanna look like those guys that don't play because they think it's for kids but i can't understand how someone, older than 12, can play Mario over and over again.
Believe me, i am very open minded and i know tastes are subjective but i can't understand people obsession with Nintendo games.
And don't tell something like PS and MS gamers can't understand the magic of Nintendo games. I know that some games can only be appreciated by a few. And yeah, some games are timeless. Super Mario Bros will be forever remembered by me. That's a timeless game. SMB2,3,4,5,x,u,y,7,43,54 are not.

since 1996 with mario 64 we've had a grand total of four 3d mario's for a home console.
since 1996 with mario kart 64 we've had a grand total of four mario karts for a home console.
infact the only mario game which is arguably over used imo is mario party (9 titles since 1996) and they usually still offer more changes than your annual CoD, fifa, etc.

i am now looking for something else in video games, i changed. I am looking some sort of realism or at least a suspension of disbelief not too farfetch, more mature story and gameplay. like i say, i am not a mario demographic target anymore, i suspect i am not the only one.
I am not saying it's wrong to play mario in your 30s or 40s, it's just not something i am attracted to currently. So yes, i prefer game like assassin's creed, cod single player campaign, dead space or deus ex hr.
My friends are probably of a similar opinion to you but just because they dont play nintendo games anymore (well some do) doesnt mean they dont still appreciate what they do. So its annoying when people dismiss another game for having mario in it.. regardless if its a game of the year contender or not.
nintendo make brilliant games for everyone.. xenoblade, smash bros, fire emblem, metroid, zelda etc it why i still support them and hope they continue making home consoles for another 30 years

It's only been recently that Mario games have been a bit repetitive. I enjoyed Super Mario 3D Land, but I don't want another side scrolling/3D hybrid game. I thought that NSMB was a nice step away from past console iterations, but now its getting excessive to be honest. I think Nintendo ultimately switched design styles because the market wanted a change.
OP: Then why can't Nintendo keep making their machines, and the Sony/MS exclusives make games for that? Then you have hardware innovations as well as the games you love.
Mother pus bucket!
I wish there was a new Metroid coming out. I will not be buying a Wii U until one does.
why, WiiU was there first loss in the last 30 years, don't think it bothered them too much, they will come up with something and they will be all ok again.
Perfect example of what not - Final fantasy. FFs on Nintendo were good, just cept getting better. 1-6, then they went to Sony, and slowly it became more about graphic and less about game. Look at FF now. All graphics and no game. Just a really polished turd. The last one might aswell have been a movie.
"We set out to revolutionize entertainment, combining an explosive action game with a dramatic TV show, and blurring the lines between the mediums. The choices you make in the game create your personalized version of the TV show. And watching the show gives you insight that impacts the way you play the game."
...says a presenter for Quauntum Break.
so its like what he said before.. trying to achieve photo realistic visuals, emotion, immersion etc at the expense of gameplay (every now and again they pull off both.)

Oh exactly. I'm not agreeing with the developers' decisions; I play games for the fun, not for the prettiness (which is why I'm still playing WoW after 6 years, yet I left Aion after less than a month).
Rather, I was just pointing out that it wasn't only FF that has become this way.
And before you say anything about the DS or 3DS, none of the games (at least ones made by nintendo that I've played) use just the touch screen. Most of the time, the touch screen is used for minor things that make certain things like inventory screens more convenient, or can be used for aiming on the top screen (like with Kid Icarus: Uprising).
