Default An Open Letter to Nintendo

Dear Nintendo,

I have been a Nintendo gamer since the dawn of my life. One of my earliest memories is sitting on the floor, struggling to beat the last level of world 1-4 in Super Mario Bros. before rushing to dinner. I've every generation of gameboy including Pocket, Color, Advance, and Advance SP, and I am currently an owner of a DS. I also own a Nintendo Wii.

In the 90s, the Super Nintendo was my life. It stole countless hours from me and made me a unsociable geek. I regret nothing of those days. I played the Nintendo 64 and Gamecube, and I remained loyal throughout those troubled days as you battled against the PS2 and Xbox.

Nowadays, the games I await most anxiously are nothing more than sequels or remakes. Chrono Trigger DS, Final Fantasy 4 DS, Metroid Prime 3, Animal Crossing Wild World and so many others are simply remakes or continuations of other franchises which you have nurtured for many years. A vast number of the wii games seem like nothing more than silly gimmicks or excuses to play around with motion controls.

I feel as though the magic of Nintendo is beginning to fade away, and I don't want to live in a world where Nintendo is not a godlike force. Nintendo, you invented the P-Switch in Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES. This switch turned blocks into coins, which is exactly what the wii has done for countless 3rd party games. But I fear that the ticking has begun, and unless another switch is found, these coins will soon again turn back into useless bricks.

On behalf of myself and many other gamers everywhere, I would simply like to request that you make an original and non-gimmicky fun game to rekindle my love of your systems and company.

With love,
Lord Setheris

Maybe someone less biased should pretend to be Nintendo, RT.


Not that a letter like this posted randomly on a forum is gonna spark a movement or anything.

Point taken.

That said, I just find it funny that he's complaining about sequels when everyone in the industry except EA is doing it.

I'd just like to point out that you're asking for two different things and getting them both. Wii has a ton of shovelware, yes, but the shovelware is all new, isn't it? In comparison, PS3 has nothing on it, and what it IS getting is two new FF games, KH3, and a ton of other sequels in its own right. Even good original games are less than perfect. Do you have any idea how many games try to shoehorn in Six Axis? Folklore made it necessary in ways I didn't even know it WORKED to catch enemies. And there's an FPS where you have to shake it to put the fire out if you get hit with napalm.

I'd say Wii's selection is probably the best and that its use of the entire point of its own control system isn't going to stop. If you're not playing new games because they're handled by what the Wii was essentially made for, there's the Classic Controller and GameCube games, or plenty of stuff on their network to buy.


Edit:
Or for that matter, you could just accept your realization that the Wii is a gimmick and be done with it. It's the most obvious one since the Virtual Boy, or maybe Power Glove.

To be fair, it's a gimmick that works whereas the SixAxis kinda sucks.

Hey now - SIXAXIS works just fine. It's just the way they choose to implement it. Some games don't need it, but they put it there anyway, some games it works well with. The Wii has a lot of games that have dandy control schemes, but are total and utter crap.

There's a happy medium for both motion sensor sensorings.
