And you don't feel that's generalising just a bit too much?
I am generalizing becuase I was too lazy to type all of my thoughts. I don't really want Nintendo to fail. Its just that as far as home consoles go I prefer the controller design of the Playstation, and as far as games go there are usually only a few Nintendo exclusive games I really want to play. Beyond that Nintendo's libraries have never really had enough games that could hold my interest. The result? I end up wanting to buy the N64 and the GC for the sole purpose of playing a few games, after which I hardly ever touch it.
Do I really want Nintendo to fail? No. But they either need to expand their library or they need to just focus on developing games for different systems (with the exception of the handheld market which they own). Also I've already given my thoughts on the Wii controller. Maybe I'll change my mind if I see more good games utilizing it well, but I'm not holding my breath.
Beyond that, and returning to your comment... Just to play Zelda? Are you stoned? Go play some Rayman or Trauma Centre: Second Opinion before you open your mouth.
Its an opinion and you have no idea what games I'm interested in so don't act like you know what I like. I'm not saying they are bad games, but the only game I'm actually interested in atm is Zelda. I also have a Gamecube but its the same deal. Besides a few Nintendo exclusive games, I could get everything else I wanted to play on my PS2 (which is the only console I own that I don't share with my brothers).
It's okay Dadeykins, he's new. He didn't know I was being sarcastic. :P
Its kind of hard to know when someone is being sarcastic on the internet :/
The thing that I have against Nintendo systems since the N64 is their lack of quantity. Quality's all good and well, but no matter how stellar a few titles are, once you finish them, the system has no staying power. My Nintendo 64 and Gamecube have just sat in the closet collecting dust while my PSX and PS2 got so much playtime I'm surprised they haven't broken down on me.
Also, this 'go fucking die' crap should really be fucking stopped. Whether her arguments are dumb or not, it's not worth this kind of response.
I've just learned to deal with people that annoy me. Hell, if I didn't people like you, Hidoshi, would make me leave.
The non-stop trail of shoddy ports following the end of Sega's console years has pretty much killed my faith in all but a small portion of that company. That portion that I still respect is pretty much responsible for PSU, and PSU alone.
Well I'm not saying I want that to happen but to be honest I really don't know much about Sega's quality since I've never owned one of their systems or any of their games recently. Still, I don't see how they can't make those games good if they actually tried.
