Name Game: Double Trouble

I agree to this wholeheartedly.
Nintendo seems to do sequel cash-ins the best. No matter how much recycled their games are going to be, I will still shell out some dough for another zelda on another system.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Just make another new one!

And it worked fucking great for DS so bringing the concept to the big screen is bad....how?

Yeah they should just let their most popular franchises atrophy and die. That will show them?

Gamers want these games you know. How dare Nintendo give gamers what they want...

I've never owned a nintendo console and the only game i've played of theirs is Super Mario.
I'm either missing out or staying richer.

I'd definitely buy the DS if it did print money though. Can't have enough of that.

Exactly. They're making me want the 3DS and Wii U by way of nostalgia. I've been dying to play Star Fox 64 for ages.

Sadly you missed quite a few good games.
OoT
Super mario 64
Banjo Kazooie
Goldeneye
Blast Corps
Perfect dark

PS1 may have been the beast that time but quite a few of its games aged very well.

so we got
crash 1,2 & 3
spyro 1,2 & 3
final fantasy 7,8 & 9
metal gear solid

and some of the N64 games didn't age very well either and beside i should bring up the PS2 if we are talking about good games

Let the battle begin.
I haven't played any of the crash or spyro games. Final Fantasy 7 and 8 haven't aged well(Time has made FF7 shit) and the only one left is FF9 which I haven't played so no comment from me.
Metal Gear Solid.... Not aged very well either. The controls feel a little clunky and the graphics don't do justice to snake the badass. Also, it got a remake on nintendo console so your argument is invalid.

Could you list some of the games that haven't aged well on the console(N64)?
I would love the list considering only quite a few games were released for it.

Also keep the PS2 out of the discussion. It would be like bringing the god between the fight of two children.

Sounds an awful lot like CAPCOM.....*Cough* Asses *Cough*

Name Game: Double Trouble

Damn it Nintendo!

Heehehehe It's alright Leels, I thought the idea of 3DS was stupid as well.....that was until Metal Gear Solid 3D and the new Shinobi game was exclusively for that system......so yeah...I'm still holding on to the dying and emaciated hand that is my Original Nintendo DS with a cartridge of Super Mario DS in there... *Sigh* Damn you Nintendo. I honestly don't even know what to think about this WiiU thing though.

It's like Nintendo knows that we'll keep crawling back to them asking for another 100 Smacks in the face(Casual half assed games) with the occasional pat on the head (Good Nintendo games) every few years or so.

Now, I'm going to tell a funny story I heard once about Nintendo.

My balls are like little question mark blocks, and every once in a while Nintendo comes up with something new, punches me in the balls, and walks away with their gold coins.

I'll be right there with everyone else just as soon as they release a game where you play as Yoshi. Until then, I think I'll manage to not piss away gleefully spend all of my money... not that I need Nintendo to help me with that >.<

I guess this officially makes us the masochist and Nintendo the sadist. Such a relationship goes hand in hand with whip. lol

I swore I wouldn't get 3DS (almost did for Snake Eater) but then they just HAD to drop the bomb with Smash Bros D:

Let the whipping commence! (&%$# what was the safety word?!)

ChocoFace:

I'm either missing out or staying richer.

Allow me to answer this question with the word "Both".

You are absolutely amazing, Leels. I mean, I think the Wii U is pretty damn stupid down to the name...

...BUT HD ZELDA OH MY GOD I NEED IT NOW!! I-And, if the devilish folks at Nintendo have it in them to retcon the shit out of Other M and make an HD Metroid game with the Samus we know and love... I-the thought of it-
I just can't-

*passes out*

the funniest thing I found about this is that there's only 2 panels for this comic.

+ I'll reserve my judgement on Wii-U until further detail is released.

Mario 64 hasn't aged well at all. It got a remake on DS but it had upgrades to graphics and characters so that doesn't count in my mind. The original super smash bros looks absolutely terrible and i recently played it, the controls are clunky and rudimentary at best.(also on that note although not a game in the age of dual shock the 64 controller isn't very good either). and besides the ones you named how many other 64 titles jump to mind. everyone remembers the great ones but 64 had a vast library of forgettable titles and that to me says that the system has done well over time.

Is it just me, or is Nintendo getting really gimmicky these days? Then again, I suppose you could level that claim at Sony and Microsoft, too.

Nowadays?
They were always so gimmicky. Their gimmicks are what make them what they are now.
The NES was packaged with ROB which probably was more of a liability but it allowed their console to be accepted world wide and just look at it now. It is one of the best consoles.
Gamecube didn't come with any gimmick that is why it is quite forgettable. Quite less people would remember playing twilight princess on gamecube. Instead most people played it on Wii.
Look at the Wii now, it is the best selling home console in the market. Even though it is gimmicky, it is cheap... very cheap compared to the other two.
So basically Nintendo is just another word for gimmick.
Also, Virtual boy doesn't exist. LALALALALALALA CAN'T HEAR YOU!

Nintendo and COD are both responsible for the retardation of the cognitive abilities of a particular niche of gamers, separate from the hardcore and casual. I'm of course referring to the tunnel-visioned fanboys/girls.

While their games DO produce a consistent amount of revenue considering the sheer lack of effort placed into them to keep them fresh and unique as opposed to stagnant and inbred, it is a pity to see these two powerhouses of gaming companies to only be in it for the money and not for the sake of gaming (ie safe>fun). Regardless, their business model is ingenious and cannot go without mention.

Oh, and please don't get gimmick confused with innovation.

why must we keep the PS2 out of the discussion cann't you admit that the gamecube is the badest nintendo console

and beside there are more good games for the PS1 that i just can't think of right now and how about you name me ssome good 3rd party games for the 64?

I love the smile of the guy on the left it reads to me

"I am literally better than you in every single way, see? Benjamin agrees too."
