* Nintendo, what went wrong?

Gamecube/Nintendo
Gamerfeed's got an op-ed today on where Nintendo screwed up, and why they're no longer on top.

As you know, times have changed quite a bit since the late eighties/early nineties. As I'm writing this I'm pausing to glance at my four game racks and it's actually rather difficult picking out the Nintendo games from the Xbox and PlayStation logos that adorn those respective cases, and as I glance around my room and note how much more PS2 and Xbox stuff there is I can only ask one simple question: What the hell happened?
He goes through the basics - censorship, the Sony Playstation/SNES-CD debacle, N64's cartridge-driven problems, and the Gamecube's lack of a Mario title on lauch - but I think he's missing the point. I'll save that one for next week's Weekly Musings.
