The Nintendo Generation includes anybody born from the mid 80's to the mid 90's. So called because we grew up with Nintendos and Segas.
One of the highlights of our younger years was the console wars, when Nintendo ans Sega were in contention for market supremacy.
The Nintendo Generation can be defined by out reminiscing over classic TV shows that the children today will never know of. Ours is the lucky, the chosen, the few, with the glory days of gaming, wrestling, TV, and for the most part, music.
We grew up on such classic movies as Jurassic Park, The Matrix (Before it sucked), the Ernest series, Waynes World, Austin Powers, Independence day, and Dumb and Dumber.
My favorite cartoons were, and this is an abbreviated list, Dexters Lab, Invader Zim, Gundam Wing, Dragonball Z, Biker Mice from Mars, Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, Gargoyles, Johnny Bravo, Samurai Jack, Ninja Turtles, onic the Hedgehog....
Yeah I miss my shows...
1> Hey man, do you remember the old school good shows?
2> Yeah man, like Goof Troop, The Raccoons, Frsh Prince of Bel-Air, Tiny Toons?
1> Yeah those were the days
3> We have Spongebob!
1&2> Get the fuck out of here. Fucking kid. You don't know what a good cartoon is!
The Nintendo Revolution is the next generation of Gaming, brought to you by nintendo. It is called the revolution because it "Revolutionizes" the way we game today.more...
It's controller looks like a Remote Control. It has in total (including the Analog attachment) 6 buttons. (Z1, Z2, A, B, a, b) Now correct me if i'm wrong, but most games now use more than 6 buttons, and almost all use at least 2 analog sticks. Also their, secret "revolutionary" function is that the controller can detect motion, adn replecate that in the game...
Basically, nintendo want's you to Sit there on your sofa waving your arms around like an idiot and expect to think of yourself as "cool" now some may tell you that: "Hey! you don't have to swing your arm, ayou can just move your wrists." Well you try and move your TV remote aroudn wit your wrists for a few hours? (hardcore gamers)
Nintendo is also trying to appeal to "non gamers" with the "familliar design of a remote control" Nintendo want's everyone to be able to pick up the controller and say, "Hey! this is fun." It's a nice plan i admit, but there is one fatal flaw...
Hardcore Gamers. These are the kinds of people who will spend a few hours a day playing video games. They only buy the best of the best games out there. They look for depth, gameplay, and length in a game. Also partially graphics.
Now, these people and "non gamers" don't really mix well when trying to cater to. Non gamers may not enjoy insanely complex puzzeles or 60hr st...
Pronounced, "we" (for serious)more...
The OFFICIAL name (announced April 27, 2006) to the newest system belonging to Nintendo. From a recent poll on a gaming site, only 9.15% of people said "It's neat, catchy, and I like it" while the rest HATE it and don't understand the reason why they changed it to it's earlier code-name, "Nintendo Revolution". The innovative idea of using a remote control-like gaming control in which you can point to the screen and actually interact like you are in the game itself is what draws people in since the other system in progress (PS3)doesn't and the already-released system, X-Box 360 could not compare aswell.
The very hated name, "Wii" has had potential customers to re-think buying the system (as childish as it sounds, its true) because they would be to embarresed to ask their friends if they "want to play with their Wii". Everyone wants Nintendo to re-name the system back to 'Revolution' and who knows, if critisism of the name continues, they may just have to change it. The name "Wii" opens many doors to hilarious jokes such as, "OMG, LAST NIGHT LISA SAT ON MY WII! IT HASNT BEEN FUNCTIONING PROPERLY SINCE. OMG OMG" and "Dont be so rough with my wii!". Personally, even I hate the name wii... what was nintendo thin...
A major problem, as are all fanboys. Like all fanboys, they rarely give a reason for their company's superiority, and if they do it's some antiviolence bullshit that either accuses the average Microsoft or Sony gamer of being violent and hating Nintendo for the lack of violence it provides. Although the gibberish that they spurt sometimes has a point, such as their most frequently used phrase that "Xbox has no (very few) fun games, they still ignore the fact that the Dreamcast was shunned, and that many of Sega's earlier systems were also poorly done, with the exception of a few games like Shinobi, and that the Gamecube was on the bottom of the charts during current generation. They will make the excuse, again, that we hate their systems because they don't provide enough violence, but when Resident Evil 4 (possibly one of the most violent and disturbing games of the current generation), it was a Gamecube exclusive. It was still a great game, but this took away their "Microsoft and Sony gamers are violent" line. They're just as much of a n00b as any other fanboy of any other system, and most gamers who meet them fantasize about a video game character (usually Master Chief a la VG Cats) brutally murdering the fanboy. Fanboys give all gamers a bad name.
SEGA/Nintendo fanboy:OMGXBOX SUX!!!11 NINTENDO PWNS PS2 LOL IF U DONT LIKE NINTENDO OMGSHUTUP YOU FAGGOT!1!!
(Master Chief sticks a plasma grenade to fanboy)
(Master Chief drives up in Warthog)
Master Chief:Now run, little piggy, run.
A video gaming consle that was supposed to have many amazing features, but they were canceled. It also was supposed to allow you to download any nintendo game from the past 20+ years, but only about 50 games are available. Other than the let down, it is a very good system that is fun for all ages, Having a large variety of games. It does not focas on graphics, instaed on entertainment and fun value. It also costs much less than the other next generation consles
The nintendo wii is an affordable, fun system.
Generation Y (born between 1980-1994) are also called the Echo-boom generation because their parents are Boomers. This is the last generation to remember the 20th century and the time before the fully digital age. Some grew up with no internet, others remember when dial-up was the big thing, before HDTV, before cell phones were commonplace, when CD players were a must have, when basic cable was luxury and when you went to the video store to rent a VHS and remember the days of Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. The cutoff for Generation Z is not 9/11 as earlier thought, it is the mid 1990s, normally 1994. The last of Generation Y is in high school and no, they do not like Hannah Montana, that is Generation Z. While some of Generation Y is certainly over obsessed with social networking and is very narcissistic, it is still the last generation to remember the pre-Youtube/Facebook/Myspace era and to have connection to the 20th century. Early Yers remember the Cold War, good MTV and all Yers remember when kids TV meant something. Their icons include Michael Jordan, Will Smith and our pin-up girl was Pamela Anderson during the Baywatch days.
When were you born? 1991...ahh, you're Generation Y; remember Sonic for Sega Genesis
That and Super Mario World!
What about you?
You're Generation Z. Do you remember when Yahoo was the #1 search engine?
"Yahoo? It's Google...and why would anyone like CD's?"
The next Generetion of the Nintendo's line of portable systems. It let's you play Video games in 3d, without those stupid glasses. Many People say it's just another version of the Nintendo DS, but they're wrong.more...
It has 2 screens, the top one is 3.5 inch and is the one that uses the 3D technology, the down one , 3.02 inch, is touch screen, but no 3D, because the touch would affect the 3D effect. You can play your original Nintendo DS Games, it has a new feature, like an analog stick called Slide Pat, a slider on the side that adjust the 3D effect. It ca play 3D movies and takes picuter in 3D using 2 0.3 megapixels cameras in the front of the handheld.
The Nintendo 3DS cartridges will hold 2GB of game data and look almost exactly the same as those of the current DS. However, there is a small tab jutting out on the one side, most likely to prevent 3DS cards from being inserted in the 1st generation DS. The Graphics can be compared with the Wii graphics.
The 3DS possesses Wi-Fi capabilities and periodically searches for Wi-Fi hotspots and other 3DSs without user input, and will be able to receive data from the Internet or other 3DSs while in sleep mode. The system supports multiplayer gameplay via a local wireless connection or over the Internet
TL:DR The thing that will kill the PSP and dance on his grave
