    I've been contemplating about Nintendo, and I think that they're slipping. Like Apple, they seem to just keep on running by making remakes and what seems to be "Plan B" games. Nintendo doesn't seem to be doing very well either; the Xbox and Playstation are slowly catching up.


    Is Nintendo just milking fanboys of their money? It kinda feels like it.

    Well, yes and no.

    Does the name Mario boost sales? Of course.
    Do they make bad games just for money? Nah
    Do they recycle games akin to guitar hero/rockband? Not that badly (look at how much changes between non-sequel games, 64->sunshine->galaxy)

    They make excellent games, and their characters become known for it, and its an unwritten deal between us that they won't fuck us with a flagship title. Even wii music must have been fun for the "wii crowd"

    I personally quite liked other m, while the prime series wasn't fun for me.

    Personal preference and making bad games are different.

    Why's Other M get all the hate?
    I think it's a rather fun game that adds a bit to the Metroid formula.

    The Prime games and Other M are totally different; it doesn't make one or the other bad. And you shouldn't nessacarily judge someone based on their post count. (See:me [​IMG] )

    Juan - why is zero mission not a "true" metroid game, while the original is? Its a remake. A really good one, at that. Fusion wasn't bad either...

    I understand Other M but how are Fusion and Zero Mission not "true Metroids"?
    Zero Mission is a remake of the first Metroid.

    Well simply because the linearity imposed by Sakamoto to place certain presentations what make just losing the spirit of the original Metroid, making them lineal. The best thing would have been a completely revamped NES Metroid technically and solving the two major challenges to the game, but no, Sakamoto wanted place a story in the game although the animations are 4 or 5 that say nothing.

    Also, Juan, they are indeed true Metroid games. While not the best in the series, they're still loads better than what most kids today play.
