1. Nintendo has ALWAYS been a more family friendly console. The games and systems they create are designed for a family living room, not a dorm room. Like ANY good company, they focus most of their efforts on their core demographic. They have been pushing innovation since the beginning, and some of the things don't come out as well as planned.
2. People buy Nintendo FOR those franchises. Claiming that Mario does "the same tired shit he did back in 1984." is pretty pathetic. The game now shares 2 things in common with that original game, 1) the name Mario, and 2) The platformer genre. Nintendo is the company on the forefront of innovation, and creativity. Without their successes AND failures, the landscape of gaming would be far behind what we experience today. I will however give you that they lack the originality in their games these days, compared to those that built the company.
3. They are a video game console company, they shouldn't really spend any time worrying about anything other than making the gaming experience on their system better. Their target audience doesn't care about an all-in-one system, they buy a Nintendo to play games. Do you expect your Blu-Ray player to make phone calls for you? Wouldn't that just be wasted time/money invested by the company to put that function in?
In the end, Nintendo has always been about gaming for people who get entertainment from having fun, not from creating games for people that can't feel excitement without sex, violence, and fake competition; The anger towards Nintendo comes from the latter.

Its not that I hate nintendo, it's just that they're really bad at figuring out what to sell and how.
How many people thought the Wii U was just an accessory?
because "lol nintendo doesn't even have good graphics!" or "omg nintendo games are for kids." Really there are no good reasons.

Shrug. Everyone has an opinion. But why would you give value to some random person's opinion?
I didn't know there was hate for Nintendo, just... no interest in them anymore really.
The greatest ever thread on MMO-Champion
I work a lot, fuck my life.
Dude... the PS3, even after 8 years, is outselling the Wii-U on a weekly rate in Japan.
Media Create's console hardware sales in Japan for the week of Aug 12-18.
PS3 – 14,331 [559,295]
Wii U – 12,047 [421,139]
Wii – 1,772 [54,893]
Xbox 360 – 322 [17,607]
Isn't it immature that you call him Donald "Dump"?
I agree, it's childish and stupid - and that's my point. it's meant as a deliberate mockery of his blatant disrespect via using "Crooked Hillary", and thus I can call him "Dump" since he dumps his campaign promises, dumps campaign managers, dumps his wives, wants to dump the first amendment, dumps common-sense war ethics and dumps the use of proper English in favor of a mongrel white-trash dialect.
the likelyhood of nintendo ever going 3rd party is about as likely as shigeru miyamoto stabbing reggie onstage at next years e3.
and way to completely ignore the fact that nintendo has for a few years now the fastest and best selling console in the 3ds which also has pretty solid software sales as well. again, if they dropped out of the home console buisness they wouldnt go 3rd party they would devote all their resources to the 3ds

incase you didnt understand what i meant. if the wiiu fails its far more likely we will see nintendo try to bring out a high end console than go 3rd party. either that or it will be 3ds all day every day.
3rd party is a pipe dream that will never happen
Just going to put this out there. This may not be a great game by anyone's standards... It was actually pretty fun when it first came out but it has the title of "best selling video game ever" and you know what's behind it? Super Mario Bros. 1. I just want anyone to believe that Nintendo should go third party that even thinking that is just wrong, the gaming industry would change a lot and not for the better, we need Nintendo. They deserve more respect than people give them, they pretty much made the video game industry happen. Super Mario Bros. saved the industry, there really wasn't much too it before it.
Yeah they probably kicked themselves a bit with the launch of the Wii U being a bit too early but do some of you guys think it will never really sell? This may sound stupid but the new Super Smash Brothers game will increase the sales pretty well, just one game will. I think it's safe to say the same thing happened to the 3DS and I'm going to bet the same for the Wii U.

And that's just Pikmin 3, not even considered one of their bigger franchises.

Probably a correlation between Nintendo haters and high school kids calling each other "n*ggers" on Xbox Live.
We got a Wii U last year for Christmas and I was flabbergasted. To this day, I tell my parents it was a terrible present because there are hardly any quality games on it and the sales reflect this.
But woe unto Nintendo haters when Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Legend of Zelda, etc. arrive for Wii U...
There is a lot of hate for Nintendo? Never heard about that.
*leaves thread and continues living on ignorant about irrelevant opinions*
21st Century Thinking: "Politicians will solve our problems!"
Why I hate nintendo? Easy: They abducted Fatal Frame 4 and hold it hostage on their wii.
I mean, the previous three games were on PS2 (and XboX IIRC), why would I think the 4th game would be any different?
I will never forgive them.
I've seen a lot of irrational hate towards Nintendo and I don't get it. They have plenty of critically acclaimed innovative games under their belt, they don't try to screw over their customers every chance they get, and they are one of few developers who try to create something unique instead of delivering generic brown first person shooters every year. I guess you could say they are out of touch with the modern world with their outdated online philosophies, but that doesn't warrant the hate they get.
Nintendo took a dive in my book when they decided to go with those god damned motion controls from wii. I frigging loved playing on nes, snes and n64, I have no idea how many times I played through super mario 3, mario world and mario 64
Soccer balls have barely changed in the last ~30 years. Who is stupid enough to buy that shiat.
