To parents:

Nintendo is the label used by parents of old school gamers in reference to absolutely any device that they consider to be a 'videogame'.
Mom: "When are you gonna turn off that damned Nintendo and start taking care of your family?"

You: *sigh* "It's an XBOX 360 mom, how many times do I have to-"

Mom: "Whatever. You sit around playing games all day long when you SHOULD be taking care of that screaming kid! You're in there playing Nintendo all day long and you only come out when you're hungry enough to eat! And then you vanish back to your bedroom! You're 32 years old. When are you gonna start acting like-..."

You: "......OH you BITCH! Fucken noob combo motherfff-..."

Mom: "WHAT?!"

You: "...huh? MOOOOOOOMMM...! You're distracting the hell outta me, damnit!"

Mom: "I PAY for that Xbox Live so you can sit around playing Nintendo all day? What is this, a joke?"

You: "....OOOOOH! YEAH, BITCH! TEABAG!"

Mom: "WHAT?!"

You: "Nuthin... talkin' to them..."

Mom: "Anyway, go tell your wife that dinner's ready. And clean up your damn room."

You: "........"

Mom: "Clean up your damn room!"

Possibly one of the greatest Gaming co. of all time. Kicks Sony and Xbox's butts. They're the only PURE gaming company. (Sega was too, but they dont make systems anymore.)So many haters say Nintendo is a company for kids, but im 13 (not a good example) and still play Pokemon(occasionally), Mario (Can't stop playing) , and as a matter of fact, I refuse to Play an XBox, and use my bro's PS2 for a DVD player! They lead the Gaming industry in innovations.
PS2 guy- Our new Game system has internet acess, Online gameplay, and not to mention the MOST games produced!

XBox guy- We suck, we all know it.

Nintendo- We have all that PS2 crap too, but our games are a heck of alot better.

Nintendo, the company made famous for the NES (Nintendo Entertainment system) and the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment system) was originally a card game manufacturing company, which became popular in Japan. They later became a video game manufacturing company. Their first consoles were a series of "Color T.V. Games." Then created the NES. Which was popular for the Super Mario Bros. game, which the main character, Mario, set a staple for Nintendo. The SNES came along, followed by the Nintendo 64. Until 2001, the GameCube came, and Nintendo was presumably put into Third Place in the Console Wars (see article for details) and lost the 2001-2004 Console race. Then, in 2004, Nintendo released a new, portable, gaming device, The Nintendo DS (dual screen.) When 2006 rolled along, Nintendo revealed their new console, the Nintendo Wii. Using motion sensing technology, it inspired many to get off their couches and actually feel as if they were inside of the game.

Nintendo, made popular by the original NES, rivals Sony and Microsoft as the biggest game giant. They actually care about their gamers and the games they're making, rather than just publication.

Some of their mascots include: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, Link, Zelda, Ganondorf, etc..

Their systems are the NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, GameCube, and their newest one, the famous Wii. This new machine is very interactive, especially due to it's controller, the WiiMote, and also this machine allows free Wi-Fi. Nintendo is often criticized by other video game fanboys and companies for having only kiddie games. Well kiddie games aren't so bad, and their game Resident Evil 4 is definitely NOT a kiddie game. Especially with the chainsaw man, Dr. Salvador...
Wade: Hahahaha your gay Nintendo Wii sucks ass!

Liam: Yeah, and I'm sure your George Forman Grill ripoff PS3 and that homosexual carboard box XBOX 360 that you own are way better. Dipshit.

Wade: ...*crys*

Best video game company out there. Creators of thriving game series such as Mario, The Legend of Zelda and Metroid.
Twilight Princess for the Wii really beats Halo 2/GoW because of the gameplay. Sure, GoW and Halo 2 have better graphics, but they have to be the most repetitive games, and must require the least amount of skill out there. Twilight Princess has decent graphics, but its gameplay is simply amazing. You have several different dungeons and bosses to face off against, several different items to beat these bosses, and several different mini-quests to aide you in completing the game. The game requires a lot of dedication, and requires focus to complete.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is going to set the bar for Halo 3. Halo 3, which will probably be as generic of a shooter as Halo: CE and Halo 2, will only have good graphics. Not to mention that the idea of buying a small Master Chief helmet is simply retarded. Metroid Corruption will have great graphics, excellent gameplay, and awesome WiFi multiplayer.

Not to mention, Nintendo's wifi is... FREE. You may not be able to talk to people on it (but who cares, all people do on Xbox live is complain and call other people noobs). Nintendo also creates cost-effecient games.

Nintendo has created some of the greatest games of all-time. The best game has to be The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The graphics were great for it (at its time) and it had incredible game play. Halo series' gameplay, as mentioned earlier, is generic and takes no skill and concentration.
Wow! I have an assault rifle and a grenade! I'm going to throw the grenade and blindly shoot my rifle till I run out of ammo! z0mg! I GOT 12 KILLS! WOO!

The Nintendo Wii is awesome too. I recently got it a few weeks ago, and it has yet to disappoint me. The cost, a mere 250$, makes the system well worth it. The Wii ousts the 360 and the PS3 well over. One feature of the PS3, a terrible one I may add, is the fact that you cannot bring a game to someone elses house and expect to play it right away. Nooo you cannot! It costs 2$ to play a game on someone else's PS3. The PS3's six-axis controller is the biggest rip off of the Wii's wii remote/nunchuck controller.

Wii Sports, the game that comes with the Wii to teach you the usage of the controller, is decent and probably is more fun than most PS3 games.

Nintendo also has other amazing systems, such as the Game Cube, Nintendo DS, N64, Gameboy Advance (SP), Gameboy (color/pocket), SNES and NES. Not one of those systems disappointed me. I own a Wii, GCN, DS, N64, GBA, SNES, and NES. All those systems have great games to back them up.
The Nintendo game company will not disappoint you with the amazing game play they provide you with on all of their consoles.
