    Everybody has something against Nintendo... So why don't we just pack it into this thread, and build upon it and see what happens...?

    Not a good idea. It will turn into a flame thread.
    This is a Nintendo forum after all

    I hate Nintendo! They fucking put anti piracy measures in every damn system. What the hell is wrong them? The losers can't spare us piraters some love. I hate NINTENDO! Sony is better! Microsoft is better! Nintendo is for casual losers who have Squirrel Aids!

    At the moment, I really have nothing against Nintendo. I wish more developers were willing to support their different style of console. Other than that, Nintendo is doing fine in my book.

    Why the hate? Nintendo needed a successful console and their way made it work. They are doing what anyone would do and at the same time try to cater for the hardcore but HEY the hardcore wont buy their games.

    It NEVER meant shit, there was shit shovelware on the NES. People forget this.

    3rd parties don't advertise.. and crystal bearers being designed so even grandma could not want to play is exactly what's wrong with Wii games.

    Yes there were alot of horrible games for the NES, but IMO the shovelware/shit game to great/good game ratio has spiked over the recent years.

    Generally don't have a problem with nintendo, as long as their IP's are always good (which they are) then I'm happy enough. They are getting slightly lazy as a company in some respects though.

    On the whole, none of the consoles have got it totally right this generation, but MS are the company that I have real problems with. As good a library as the xbox has, the console itself is a f*cking awful half assed job from MS. My main beef is the poor console builds and the fact that you don't get full functionality out the box. With the wii and PS3 you pretty much have most of what you need out of the box.

    As an owner of all three consoles, I am pretty happy with my Wii and PS3, but I become more disappointed by the day with my 360.

    I prefer RPG's, which Nintendo doesn't have many to offer. Especially in the Wii. So, that's why when I know I have enough money, I'm gonna sell my Wii and buy myself a PS3.

    The Wii has the capability to read dual layer discs, Wi-Fi, ability to download different services to please everyone. The GCM had it's games, and that's it. And they weren't anything that really wowed people.

    And yes, I'm too lazy to list good things about the Wii.

    Of course they will protect their consoles.

    What pisses me off is their anti-piracy campaign. It only encourage me to pirate more and teach everyone I know how to pirate. I do not feel any remorse stealing some money from a multi billion dollars corporation.

    Seconded, so many fucking third party shity games crowding the market. "My first poney lesson" "My training coach" ... WTF! Seriously? Thoses games are piece of shit and don't deserve a "Seal of Quality"... There is no quality on those titles. Those are made within 3 to 6 month with limited budget & team. And the editor don't even fucking care about the final quality.

    Gameplay? Close from void. Even pong's gameplay is more complex.
    Graphics? Bad cartoonish graphics, but why bothering? It's just to scam kids!
    Optimized? What? Are you serious? It's off the budget!
    Story? 2 lines on an used handkerchief will do the job!

    And guess what? There are dozen of thoses shit on the market, for nintendo wii, and nintendo DS. They overcrowd the market, and ninty is still distributing SOQ like candies.

    But why do the editors should stop, when they manage to scam kids with thoses pile of horseshit, while nintendo's not saying a word? (certainly too much busy to count the bill)

    And the fact is, because of that bullshit business going on, editors are not motivated anymore to make good games on those consoles. (i mean fairly long timeline, decent budget and good artistic team)

    The Seal of Quality back in the NES era was just to make sure there were no terrible bugs which made the games completely unplayable (crash bugs etc.) Ninty did their job with that back then and its probably doing the same now but the problem is that we expect more than a game without major bugs these days, we expect a GOOD GAME

    360 has the larger selection of RPG's, there aren't many on PS3, which is surprising considering both the PS1 & 2 were RPG heaven. Still, I'm not going to recommend you buy a 360, unless you want a faulty product, which is what is being sold to the masses. It makes me sick.

    If you want a next gen console, buy a ps3. And before any flames, I'm not a fanboy of anything, I have all three consoles and enjoy games on all 3 consoles.

    Crappy porting of ps2 games are the devil. I know they can be ported with ease but if i am expected to part with my hard earned dollars than they can put the time to use the wii to its full potential. I'm pretty sure I am not alone on this thought.
