* In Defense of Nintendo, on Ferrago

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Ferrago's got an editorial today defending Nintendo.

Yes , yes, I comprehend the now obvious question. Why do I love them? If they have all this wrong with them then how could I possibly defend them? I'll tell you how - because of one question that arose in just such an argument very recently. Have Nintendo ever made a bad game? Of course they have... haven't they? This was what occurred to me on that day. Now, I'm not saying that I've played every game ever made by Nintendo but I have researched and found a complete list of all Nintendo releases and out of all of the ones I have played none of them were ever bad. For the record, no one in the office on that day could name a bad Nintendo game either. They are simply the masters of gaming. It's true that in principle they're often stuck in the past and as a result their releases are losing popularity with the modern wave of gamers but that doesn't in any way mean that their games are bad. After all, we all know how the best selling games are rarely the best and that many great games are commercially ignored. I'll also add that not only do they not make bad games but they often make absolutely incredible games.
