    It's official. Nintendo sure has done their part to kill off their most enjoyable franchises in favor of crap RPG, anime, Japananese cutesy shit with seemingly no interest on touching any previous franchise that doesn't have those annoying fucking brothers in it.

    As far as other companies go, well take your stupid ass nerd shooters or slice em up games, and shove them up your ass. Think of something original for a change.

    Thank god for the past, because the future sucks.

    Oh, because in the past all games were so good!
    No seriously, there were alot of gems there and there with nostalgia behind them but alot of games were unplayable crap (watch some AVGN dude) and no, it's not that grim of a future.
    And no need to be an agressive asshole buddy, calm down.

    Dude. Theres a infinite possibilities of evolution to video games. If the games this generation have a lack of fun factor dont mean will be aways this way. Still exist creative people and the tecnology open new doors.

    Such as ....

    Consumers spent 23 billion on video games in 2013.
    Maybe Nintendo is dead.
    Will Nintendo release another console to compete with MS and Sony ? Probably not.
    But video games are not dead.
    I should know my son just spent $2000 on Clash of Clans.
    (thanks for the refund Apple Store).

    I'm older than him, I don't need to watch his videos to know there were shitty games. Plus, the guy didn't even know how to land or refuel the plane in Top Gun. So take his words with a grain of salt.

    You want aggressive assholes, go play shooting games online. If nobody speaks up about their displeasure with the generalized games being released these days, nothing will change. Remember, games are about having fun. And virtually all developers have seemingly thrown that out the window in favor of bland attempts at creating games where the emphasis is on visuals and gameplay is non existent.

    At least they're still putting effort into Zelda. Literally the only game announced or shown at E3 that is interesting to me.

    That's true of every industry (music, film, etc.).
    In fact that might be true of everything.

    Nintendo is making games that they are more sure will make money because people like you are refusing to buy the original ideas they make, thus they are forced to fall back on tried and true methods. I had a quick skim through your postings and pretty much every single post you have made is trying to play games illegally. In fact i cant seem to find one post of yours that makes me think you have bought a game, ever. So who exsactly are you to judge Nintendo?

    I am not seeing it. There is nothing to say Sony, MS or Nintendo are tied together financially or artistically.

    As for the OP take some time to relax, have a couple of songs to go with it
