It still is impressive. It's not like most of the games on this list are bad, Those are fantastic titles. Sure, third party support is lacking but the fault is our own most of the time because we don't buy third party games on Nintendo Systems. In fact, the FIRST third party game I am buying for a Nintendo System this year is Watch Dogs for Wii U.
Also, this list doesn't count all those Indie games that aren't at E3 like Shadow of the Eternals or the new Shinen game
When the most exclusives entails games almost all featuring the exact same characters from very well established and expected franchises, it isn't all that impressive. As it stands, Nintendo releases the most first party exclusives every generation anyways because they can't trust the third party developers to sell their systems. My level of surprise and care is astoundingly low.
does anyone rememer the good ol days when ,when nintendo would launch a new console there was a full epic mario title packed in the box ,SNES super mario world, N64 mario64 ,NES super mario brothers,(though here in the US when the the NES 1st launched it came packed in with gyromite and duckhunt)
they should go back to that ,
nintendo e3, 1 year for mario kart 8 , no mention of zelda ,though MK8 looks good
Yes, Nintendo's exclusives are primarily first party games. Yes, Nintendo has a lot of first party games and very little third party support. However, that doesn't negate the fact that their first party games are (for the most part) fantastic! The proof is right their in the Smash Bros. franchise: not only is the Smash Bros. series amazing, but the majority of the games which characters come from are as well. Hardly anyone who has played a Zelda game, a Metroid game, or a Mario game could claim that this are not good franchises. "Same old characters" isn't such a bad thing - at least Nintendo knows what they're good at.
Not to mention... The Wii U is backwards compatible, unlike Xbox One. (And information on backwards compatibility for PS4 is a bit fuzzy at the moment, if I'm not mistaken). I'm quite confident that the PS4 will demolish Xbox One on launch unless Microsoft changes some things dramatically, but I'm still holding out that the Wii U will emerge in a much better spot a couple years from now. Microsoft and Sony can duke it out head to head trying to win all that third party support, but Nintendo offers a unique experience that neither of the others do, and that's why I think they're greatly underestimated in the "console wars".
