I'll level with you, I owned every nintendo console over the last 20 years. Snes was awesome, no one will ever argue that, but every other one of the consoles was nothing I have superiorly fo d memories of. N64 and gamecube were meh, gameboy advance was meh, ds had some moments where I felt like I was on my old snes kick, but after an hour of awkward positioned gameplay I lost the feel. I can't blame nintendo for trying to basically be the stepping stone for video games, the first step, but as I got older, they never had a grasp on me like they did when I was 7 years old. To this day, they still haven't realized that you can actually make less kid oriented games using their motion technology, family friendly characters, and laat generation hardware with fresh paint. Why can't we get more super mario RPG titles out there, that game was fucking amazing. Why not make a metroid rpg? Why not make a zelda action game ( more actiony I mean, devil may cry does pretty well). Nintendo is the one company who can afford to take risks with new ideas, but instead they just add features that nobody really cares for. Honestly, if the wii were made without motion control, do you think its sales would have suffered? 5 years after it came out and its biggest selling games are all not motion controlled priority, like brawl, mario kart, new super mario brothers. I'm generalizing a bit here, but I'm not far off. Nintendo really did a disservice to many of its fans in my humble opinion.
Yeah, its off topic really, but I wanted to vent....cuz I can't sleep right now anyway.
