OP  4/12/13 8:13:32 AM#1

Lately for some reason i've been bored and thinking about getting back into nintendo. But lately i havn't heard anything about their games and system for some reason. Noboddy i work with has ever even mentioned nintendo, all they ever talk about in xbox. I never even see comercials advertising their games, ect. 

Does nintendo not have that magic they used to have like they had during there snes and n64 days? Or are there games just like the've always been and maybe i've just outgrown um... anyone else feel like nintendo has disapered compared to the way they used to be?

The only Nintendo games I play today are those in the Zelda franchise. With that being said, I wish Zelda would dump Nintendo and realease on multiple consoles. Nintendos systems just aren't up to par, and are holding the series back.

Currently playing: GW2 (Maguuma), DAoC (Uthgard), & Aion
Waiting For / Watching: TUG, CU, Black Desert, Archeage,Wildstar, and ESO.

Nintendo launched the Wii U late last year, approx as powerful as the Xbox360 / PS3, and they really screwed up their marketing campaigns, thats why few people have heard of them. Also a lot of people are waiting for the PS4 and Nextbox, so I'm not sure how Nintendo will do this holiday season.

I could be wrong but I think Nintendo is doing OK. They have a target audience which they design games & console around.  Which is mainly the younger audience.

I know when the Wii released my daughter loved it and played the hell out of it. Now that she has gotten older I doubt she would even pick up a Wii U. I think that if you enjoy casual games on a console a Wii U would not be a bad investment, especially if you have younger kids.

For adult or older gamers I think most are waiting for the new console ( xbox & ps4) or gaming on a PC.

Nintendo cannot be taken seriously anymore until they produce a console to compete against Sony and Microsoft without using gimicks. The Wii was a fad till everyone realised they sucked hence why the WiiU isn't selling well as the kids that had those now play on a PS3 or Xbox 360.

One thing though that can be said is that Nintendo do make quality games but now they need to either step their game up or take a leaf out of Sega's book and release their games on other consoles to really make some serious cash as in this current economic climate, I dare say that they are rolling in cash like in their heyday.

Nintendo forgot about the gamers who made them the leading console, they aimed for a different demographic and now have lost their foothold on the market.

there are quite a few problems but lets me assure you of one thing.

The WII U is a solid system, It is fun and when the game pad is integrated well, the games take on a new level. The Biggest problem that Nintendo has is the lack of serious first titles for this system. People are simply waiting because the launch content has been played to death.

LEDO city undercover is a prime example, serious third party title with decent popularty, fun and funny it is a GTA LEGO game, which is always something I thought would be done. But this is basically the only title since launch to get any comerical time or   any marketing.  

Nintendo has scaled Expectation with the WII U, It is following a very very similar trend (atleast so far) to the 3DS handeld.

sales were slow because lack of first party games and well as more serious and explected third party titles.

The WII U will see 2 Zeldas (one as a Windwaker remake and one and a new game) an other 3d Mario games (akin to mario 64) as well as another super smash.

It is the above titles that people want, I loved Zombie U but untill pikmen and wonderful 101 come out there is and was pretty much nothing. SBMBU (super Mario Bros U) is a great platformer but I have no instrest, NInja Gaiden is supposed to be really good and I have yet to pick it up, and Soon Deus Ex Human Revolution: Directors Cut will be on the WII U.

 

That all being said the 3DS is carrying this company until those first party titles are out, have titles like Fire Emblem: Awaking and Lugi's Masion: Dark Moon as just the recent big releases This handheld is coming into its own.

But Again, do not think the Wii U is a bad system, its specs are more powerful then the Xbox 360 and the potential for games with the gamepad go far beyond the uses that the MOVE or KNECT have. It  simply does not have the games that people want yet. My Opinion is the wait for some crazy bundle for a game you really want.

I recently bought a Wii U for my family.  It's been fun to play, more so because we never owned the original Wii so the games for that were good and new to us and i personally love the virtual console stuff, it has a lot of old games i used to love to play from the nes, super nes, nintendo 64 days. 

With that being said, as far as new software for the actual Wii U, it's just not there.  I wouild have been really dissapointed in the Wii U purchase if I had already owned the regular Wii, because other than Mario Wii U, I spend most of my time playing the older games.  It also looks like while they have picked up some 3rd party support, it's not even close to what xbox and playstation have.  The os on the Wii U is really clunky and slow, it has some long load times.  The gamepad is really cool though, its fun to use around the house, but one downside to that even is the old wii and virtual console games won't play on it.

After the first couple months of a few hundred thousand in sales, the Wii U sales have crashed into the fifty thousand a month range which is horrible.  This is mainly because of lack of new games, and while there are promises of mario and zelda titles to be revealed at E3, there are not enough 3rd party games to fill in the gaps, and I don't see there being as many as they need in the future.

At this point it would make more sense for Nintendo to finally get out of the hardware business, at least in home consoles, because the Wii U is their first system to be sold at a loss, and it's not selling well anyway.  The handheld market is theirs for sure, even though the PS Vita is finally starting to show some life, but I think what most people want is Mario and Zelda on their playstation and xbox.  People are getting tired of buying Nintendo consoles just to play these titles and Nintendo has no incentive to make their own console for them if they are selling them at a loss now.  So Nintendo needs to either ramp up their software studios for their classic characters and create new IP's to have a constant flow of titles, or they need to just fold their hardware division and make their money on software made for other consoles.

Endless repeating same franchise for 20-30 years and mostly kids games no wonder they eventually vanish.

N64 for me was last era i liked nintendo but that was mainly for the SUPERB RARE GAMES and few nintendo games like zelda OoT.

Nintendo 3DS was for me reason to buy becouse of revival of Zelda OoT and worth it but also that platform get mainly old franchise or childish silly anime games i dont like.

But pc was always my mian interest so no loss for me.

Seems like nintendo is like the disney channel. That channel prolly has tons of kids watching it. I used to watch it constently when i was yonger, but now that im older and everyone i know is older we've moved on. Guss that would be a good comparison to what's happened with Nintendo for me.

You guys are missing it, they completely abandoned the male gamer about 8 years or so ago.  They now court children of young ages and parents. They release games that have like almost no violence and lots of work out stuff, and tasteful things you can leave on at a kids birthday party, and you wont get angry parent phonecalls, cause an 8 yeah old couldnt talk about anything but fatalities and headshots otw home in mommies mini van. 

 

My sister never bought any game system ever, she makes a heapload of money and is a single parent. The first system she bought was a leap pad, for her daughter, when she outgrew that, she bought 2 Wii's. One for each of her houses. She doesnt even play them, they are there with a copy of 3 games that she likes for her daughter, and im sure as time progresses, she will get a new game each year x2 for her daughter at xmas time.  When those wii's quit being supported, she will do the same I am sure with the next gen, family freindly kid based console.  

That is the target audience for them now, and I have to imagine, its got to be nice holding a large market share where the only competition you have is the leap pad.

Nintendo's doing just fine.  They have good games for the general gamer demographic too, just not as plentifully and not as pumped full of hormones.  If you simply can't enjoy a game that doesn't have ample swearing and blood, then it's not an ideal console.  Otherwise it's got plenty of great games.  You just have to be willing to weed through the shovelware, but you have to weed through shitty games on any console.
