Well, tbf it's working very good for them. Their best selling game is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and other games like Pikmin 3 and Super Mario 3D World are now selling much more copies than their original version with just a fraction of the resources usually needed for a game made from scratch. You can't blame for looking at the numbers and seeing that consumers are happy with this kind of games, so they just keep releasing them, it's not like they stopped making new games, Botw 2, Splatoon 3, Metroid 4 are still on their way, just delayed 'cause the current events, and they're Nintendo, they're not going to rush a game

$60 for that and the re-release of Super Mario 3D World. Phenomenal game but it isn't worth $60 dollars 7 years later so I guess they added in Bowser's Fury as a test run of an open world Mario. For the majority of Switch Owners, this is 2 new adventures for 60 bucks so it ain't that bad for anyone who hasn't played it on Wii U

Cease & desist order on a smash tournament (online) during covid.

Actively stopped any company (twitch, redbull & many more) from investing in or hosting tournaments for smash.

Cease & desist on a community joycon skin that was donating all profits to suicide awareness/ charities.

Shutdown a splatoon tournament bcuz the teams changed their tags to support melee/smash

Offically denied joycon drift was a thing.

C&d many fan made projects over the years.

So yeah Nintendo really sucks and really hates their more passionate fans.

This is the best summary by far so far. I'm sure there's other stuff that was missed but most comments here are missing 90% of the stuff. I'm only seeing mentions of releasing old games again and none of the really messed up moral stuff that you pointed out. It really shows that they only care about getting as many sales on launch day, once that's over the attitude becomes fuck anyone still enjoying anything but their latest release. Sometimes they skip straight to that like getting streamers banned for playing hyrule warriors on launch day

Moose_Cake

Seems like Nintendo is doing a lot more cash grabs and corporation tactics after the death of its company president.

Half of the Nintendo lineup is missing in action, including Metroid, Starfox, F-Zero, Chibi-Robo, Golden Sun, ect. Nintendo lineups that do exist are staying at full price since release.

A lot of indy games are being released, which isn't a bad thing except the Switch store is specifically setting things up so that bare-bone 50 cent games (including NSFW games) get more representation than well put together indies. The Best Sellers list is constantly filled with the low effort indies on sale, which defeats the purpose of a best sellers list.

There is a major focus on old games being moved onto the switch but getting priced at ×3 the price it was released on its original system with nearly identical content.

The persistent joycon drift issue that Nintendo is avoiding has never been solved, but they're still selling the product.

Then there's Pokemon being released in lower quality content than it's previous games but more expensive than ever and Nintendo isn't intervening in any way. DLC is being added to remedy missing features, so a game that used to sell for $39.99 has an installment that costs $60.00 + $29.99.

A general vanishing of communication, including the switch repair shop where parts and consoles constantly disappear.

Edit- I have a fuck ton of people texting me saying that games with small followings don't deserve Nintendo's time. While I agree that small games aren't profitable, I think it's a very stupid argument considering they support indie games.

Secondly, to the guys that are arguing that Nintendo is doing well even if all of their fans are getting mad, that is literally the point of what I'm saying. It's not a good thing to piss off your clients in the long run.

I wouldn't consider Golden Sun to be a big part of Nintendo's history. At least, until it's actually represented in Smash. Also, only one company has worked on it, and it's clear that they are more comfortable doing Mario Golf and Tennis games than going back to JRPGs.

I think the only place I’ve heard about Golden Sun is on Reddit in comments of people saying it should be in Smash somehow. Same with Chibi-Robo, where I only know about it because of the Smash Mii costume. I just had to look them up and I was honestly surprised they were series and not one-off games that I hadn’t heard of.

MSevenzer

I've loved Golden Sun since the first release on Gameboy Advance. Remember it being praised when it first released because the graphics and everything were killer for the time.

It just never picked up steam. So I don't blame them for not recognizing it. They were never hugely successful games compared to other Nintendo IP's.

GS into GS:TLA was well regarded (despite lower sales with TLA, understandable so given that it was released globally a year before the DS was released/at the end of the GBA life cycle).

The series died with Dark Dawn. Poor timing like TLA (released late into the DS life cycle, a year before the 3ds would be announced), but such a hot mess it single handedly killed a franchise. Poorly (if rightfully) reviewed, questionable game changes, and an endgame so empty and barebones, this review will have more content and character than your last team member/story arch, the list of just 'what was wrong' with Dark Dawn is a long list of both subjective and objective grievances.

It's a game not even a fan could love (though they do exist, out there).

TheWorldisFullofWar

Announcing multiple titles at least four years before they are willing to show off anything, selling old, upresed games for $10 more than the original release with minor changes, and charging for an online service that is absolute garbage.

Rainbow_Dash_RL

Many old school fans like me are unhappy because Nintendo has been cracking down on emulation of their old games while also refusing to offer much of a virtual console.

If Nintendo stopped trying to force players to use their newest system and $60 remakes of old games, and instead they gave us a Gamepass style service for access to all the older games, then their older fans may like them again.

Yeah that was pretty awesome, download 100 games and have them ready to play in a couple of seconds by just exporting them to the micro sd.

However, while I did play a lot I must say things never were the same after getting one of those cards... It really is true, when you have all the games you suddenly don't feel like playing anything. Then I figured out you could have cheats on the games like with those cheat modules and that was officially the beginning of the end of my DS gaming. Once you have every game and can have everything in said games it's over. Do not recommend.

Then someone gifted me a Game Boy Advance SP, my parents gifted it to my little cousin. 😥

Now as an adult with a job, I can finally go to the game section, in front of the crying children, and tell the shop assistant, yes I would like that Nintendo switch and those games I want, and no, I don't need permission from my parents, son.

Yeah, I remember getting that cart. Didn't have an NES when it was new, so grabbed it all on SNES. I'd say that one was a bit more value because it was a bunch of games from the prior generation vs. games from 20 years ago sold at a premium.

Just because it's working doesn't mean they're insulated from criticism.

the wii was a blessing and a curse.

on one hand, motion control is kind of fun

on the other hand, all the devs had to focus on shoehorning in motion control instead of just focusing on their game and that entire gen of 1st party wii titles was noticeably worse than their gamecube versions. the zelda was worse, the metroid was worse, the smash bros was worse. the mario was better but that was the exception.

That is correct. The Wii version was just a mirrored port of the GC version since Link is canonically left-handed and the majority of people are right-handed (Wii motion controls consideration). But IIRC Twilight Princess was in development before the planned Wii release, similar to BOTW with the Wii U/Switch in 2017. The real Wii Zelda game is Skyward Sword.

Twilight Princess was great, but it was a launch title for Wii and also on GameCube, so it wasn't all-in on the motion controls. I believe it was mostly developed for GC (could be wrong).

Skyward Sword was the Wii/WiiU period Zelda. Nobody talks about Skyward Sword.

Would be nice if people would stop worshipping companies because it's in no one's business, the worst cases are when you point out that their beloved company does exactly the same things their most hated company do, nope, it's fine then because s/he likes them so they're cool, only people s/he doesn't like are doing bad things.
For ages companies with the best PR could kick a dog and send it flying and people will still defend them till their last breath.
To people like this - you get nothing out of this, you're making things worse for everyone, valid criticism isn't 'they just hatin''.

Recently when Xbox nearly doubled their Xbox Live Gold prices, any criticism of Phil Spencer was met with raging fans saying "Phil would never do something like that to us! He has done nothing but turn the Xbox brand around for the better!"

A company's sole purpose is to keep themselves profitable and make more money. We can respect them and support their products, but they're not infallible human beings. They're companies. An organization led by profit.

I mean, people are starved for AAA developers that don't just disappoint 90% of the time. Nintendo still releases polished, good games. So their flaws are pretty easily overlooked.

Meanwhile anyone with sense recognizes that we can say fuck the AAA devs and still be drowning in a sea of quality game releases. Hades came out last year, bro. And even that is just a really popular quality game from a smaller studio, there's so many more just lying around.

The big devs can suck it.

I’m just mad because it seems like they’re making better versions of WiiU games the generation after it

Seems like they’re trying to make everyone forget the WiiU existed

Edit: The switch is great, I just wish Nintendo made more first-party titles for the WiiU

BotW was developed originally for it, and I think the inventory worked a lot better on the WiiU than on the switch

I use mine as a new wii to be honest. Wii sports lives in it and my friends and I still play wii golf on the regular.

To be clear, that is not justification for buying a console and I’m dumb as fuck. But I should get an extra decade of wii golf out of it.

Oh, and the Donkey Kong game was actually fire. That’s all.

Why wouldn't they? There's a bunch of great games on the WiiU that got overlooked because they were on the WiiU. They can port a game, give it a touch-up and maybe some extra content, then release a good game that the majority of their playerbase missed and will giddily pay full price for.

Honestly, they'd be stupid not to do it. It's free money.

Especially now that online trading is a thing and you aren't buying the extra trading cable and desperately hoping a friend gets the other version.

I still remember having full discussions with my best friend over who is gonna get what version and what Pokemon you want to make sure they get one for you.

Growing up, I was the only kid in my neighborhood with a trading cable. Everyone would come by after school or sit by me on the bus to get in on that action. I completed my Pokédex first out of everyone. I wish I could go back and tell myself “Hey kid, this is your peak. This is the most popular you will ever be.”

Do people not know that you're only supposed to buy one of them?? It's to get you to trade for the ones not in your version. And it's a hell of a lot easier to trade today than it was in 1998.

My fiancee got me a Switch controller grip for the console as a handheld. I love it but I get the frustration.

I've long owned every Nintendo system but I've always been disappointed with the lack of third party library of games I want to play. But Steam has long been my primary gaming solution and my Switch is my chill one.

This is news to me. I've had my Switch since launch and play it almost exclusively handheld, and I've never thought it was uncomfortable.

The joycons suck tho, I definitely got a Pro controller right away, and yes that is bullshit because it was an extra $70 for something that should have come with the console
