Is Nintendo Playing the Wrong Game? (Business 2.0)

    I'd also like to add, Nintendo was doing just fine with the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS/3DS consoles. BTW, go ahead and take a look at the top 50 most game copies sold. Nintendo holds the top 15 spots for games released for an individual console, and hold about 25 of the top 50 positions. Most of the other games on the list were released over multiple platforms which is why they go so high. Just to give you a sense of how many are "kids games" here is some of the list. Wii Sports, Pokemon Red/Blue, Wii Fit, Tetris, Mario Kart 8, Mario Kart Wii, Wii Sports Resort, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, New Super Mario Bros, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Pokemon Gold, Duck Hunt, Wii Play, Pokemon Sun, Pokemon Diamond. The ONLY reason sales dipped is because of the Nintendo Wii U and it's lack of quality games and the 3DS was on it's last leg. Nintendo is doing just fine, and the Switch seems to be selling very well during this COVID season.

    Xbox's top solo game is Kinect Adventures...a "kid" game. Looks like Nintendo is actually on to something, haha.

    Likely because this thread is 18 years old. Nintendo has come back and taken a majority market share with their Switch.

    Another example of an old message thread that highlights an article that didn't age well ... and I am betting that neither will your spammy post with the ad.

    So does this mean that the gaming industry is dead?! I mean, if Nintendo is failing having 60% of video game console sales, WTF is Sony and Microsoft going to do splitting the other 40%?

    yay necroing

    something those of us who lived it may remember that retro players missed is yeah n64 and to some degree gamecube sucked, sure they had a few amazing games, but they didnt have the boat loads of average to above average games you need for a current system to survive. you know the games that dont go down in history as classics but are alot of fun while new. however, its also easy to forget how dominant the gameboy and its sequels were and to some degree still are. so even when nintendo was slipping with home consoles it was still dominating with portables. nintendo's been around over a 100 years constantly adapting to the modern environment. it may falter in one area (consoles) while dominating another (handhelds) but it always comes out on top. who knows, maybe it'll leave video games altogether at some point, but if it does, i'm sure it will be to move on and dominate at something else

    I asked about this in another forum but I wonder if it is possible to play a game 'wrong'? I remember reading around that unless you play a game in the way it was 'meant' to be played then you are doing it 'wrong' and you shouldn't keep playing. I wonder if it is possible to play a game 'wrong' or the way it isn't 'meant' to be played https://trackeasy.fun/usps/ https://showbox.tools/?

    Before I get into it, I'm all for speed running and playing a game any way you damn well choose to play it. It's your game. Some people think grinding an RPG for levels early on takes away from the difficulty of the late game, or that speed running isn't how games are meant to be played. If I was to choose which type of gamer is playing a game "wrong" I would say it's a speedrunner. The use of glitches or manipulating the game into doing something it wasn't programmed to do was not meant how the programmers designed the game.

    However, since I am all for any game being destroyed however you choose to destroy it and since it's your game you may do as you please with it, I could care less. Anybody who has mastered a certain style of play is worth watching and respecting.
