A: The games company that created Mario, Donkey Kong, invented the Shoulder Button, D-Pad and bought the world pokémon...sadly. A games company who are often underestimated due to the idiocy of there central fanbase, and stereotyped due to the idiocy of rival fanbases.
The company are still making games today, and are often overlooked due to a different and refreshing approach. Although they are prefered by some gamers for there innovation, who's willingness to take risks instead of churning out numerous near identical updates to once successfull games (see:EA
) is often overlooked by the now saturated games industry.
The fans of Nintendo are often critisized for there single viewed devotion to Nintendo, which is true of many of them, who, confused by the superiority of the N64 still can't see that even though they have been devoted fans of nintendo for the majority of there natural lives, that other games machines exist to, (see:sonyroolz
for this in reverse) and that nintendo are currently screwing there loyal fans by forcing them to buy Game Boys and other needless apparels just to play there most "Innovative" games.
B: A Japanese saying translating to "It's In The Hands Of The Gods Now"
1: Nintendo are 7h3 |~0><0|~5 because I wish it was still 1998.
2: Nintendo are crap because I am as single minded in my devotion to sony/x-box as I say their fans are to them.
3: Nintendo are a games company who are prefered by some people, and not by others.
4: Nintendo stole all there ideas for metroid from Halo, which I play online due to the Origonal Nintendo's modem setting precident back in 1986, whilst using my joypad the size of a housebrick which has analogue technology, shoulder buttons and a layout/colour scheme stolen from a 14 year old nintendo console.
5: Nintendo, Sony and X-box are part of the console wars, a futile war between people who can't quite grasp the concept that no company is 100% infallible and needing reconpence for there own failing existance.
1: Regardless of people arguing about pathetic little preferences, Nintendo.
A still-successful 100+ year old game company which once specialized in making card games. It started making video games in the 1970s and created a still-popular mascot called Mario
. The company has been, and still is the console company to go to of you want quality games that last.
A games company that is supposedly always "doomed", despite the fact that they make hundreds of millions of dollars every year.
"Nintendo is doomed!"
Cares about games, and the people who play them. Not about how 1337 the graphics card is, or how many celebrities they can pay to stand around and act like they enjoy they're products.
I've talked to Xbox and PS2 fans, and all they can talk about is how its compatible with all this other shit that no one really needs, and how the grapics are so damn cool. Well do better graphics make the game more fun? Does better graphics make GTA San Andreas or Halo less mindless and demeaning?
Show me any new xbox 360 or PS3 games that can rival Super Smash Brothers, or Super Mario 64, or Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
The short answer is none of them.
Not to mention the cost difference. I'm buying a game console, not a computer/dvd player/ipod.
Im sorry if you disagree, but good graphics and mindless violence do not a good game make.
I can play Super Mario 64 for hours without worrying about my sanity, or whether I'm going to be scarred for life by something horrible. Can't say the same for GTA SA.
The only good thing that has come out of intellegent life.
Nintendo id the best thing in the world.
A fantastic video game company overlooked because of the waining intellect of the average American gamer, although it's still very popular in it's native Japan. Without them, the modern day video company would be in a dead end due to the arcade crash of the 1980's.
Nintendo reinvigorated the market with the very successful Nintendo Entertainment System released in 1985; it's Japanese counterpart, the Famicom, was also very successful. Nintendo continued this success with the release of the Super Famicom in Japan and the Super NES in America and Europe. Although it faced stiff competition from the rival Sega's Genesis console, it was largely more successful with original games such as the Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past, Star Fox, Donkey Kong Country, and the ever famous Mario series. The Nintendo 64, originally called project reality or Ultra 64, was released in 1996, A year later than Sony's Playstation. The N64 sported alot of popular and high-grossing games, from original titles licensed by Nintendo like Super Mario 64 and the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, to third party hits such as Banjo-Kazooie and Goldeneye 64. Alot of games on the N64 were considered to be top notch and have gain recognition from critics and fans alike. The most noticeable games on the N64 were Super Mario 64 due to it's revolutionary breakthrough into a fully rendered 3D environment and the use of an innovative camera system, the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time due ...
Cool, awesome, radical, new, innovative, different
"Dude, that new band is so nintendo"
Great game company that makes bright fast-paced game featuring: Mario, Luigi, Fox, Link, and Samus. They invented the game boy, and after that other gaem companies copied them (Sega, NeoGeo, other assorted japanse companies) but failed. the game boy is still being made today. Alos made pokemon games, but they made up for it.
I just got the new Mario Kart for Gamecube!!!
