Yeah, jeez, IGN is making Nintendo sound like it's going the way of Sega, I don't get it. So what, the 3DS sales were a little slow, and Operation Rainfall failed. They act like its the end for Nintendo.

I'm a PC player but I'll always have a spot for Nintendo. I grew up as a child as a hardcore Nintendo fanboy and I still love their games. The Legend of Zelda still gives me the magic feeling I had when I was a kid. :)

Mandoble, we forgive you then, we thought you were only trying to start an argument. I personally was just confused because you made such a big deal about graphics, so I assumed you were the type who only cared about graphics. Usually people don't separate them or place graphics higher than gameplay.

I dont know from where you conclude that I dont care about graphics, quite the opposite. Graphics, sounds and music are what generate the ambience of a game, and depending on them you will get a decent level of game immersion or not. Obviously there are games that require less immersion that others, but just as an example, imagine Monster Hunter Tri with the graphics detail level of Animal crossing. Graphics alone will never transform a bad game into a good one, that's clear, but a good game concept with poor graphics might pretty well become a bad one.

Read my post next time, I said "quite the opposite", that I thought you cared way too much about graphics over gameplay, and sure your right in some cases but I think Nintendo is more right than you. You don't need shiny graphics, you need to have a nice art style.

Funny all the downer comments trying to lower the 3DS against the Wii saying it's GC like. The Wii does not much better than GC, and developers who know the system and have a little talked about it publicly have said that the 3DS can do more polygons on screen than the Wii can support, and in the build + APIs of the video chip used it can do all Wii does plus some of the pixel, lighting, shaders, bloom and other effects commonly found in the 360/PS3 style stuff. All things considered it's fairly ratty to rip on the 3DS as sub-Wii in the graphics department especially given the knowns about it, and also given we're looking at 1st gen stuff that was fairly rushed out and potentially borrow aspects from other versions of games. Ridge Racer of all things was heavily borrowing from the PSP title for instance while Pilotwings was just Wii Sports Resort's island brought up too.

Wait a couple years, then make this thread.

I'm just going to through my opinion out there now.
Compared to the wii, the 3DS on all fronts is more powerful (come on it should be with that thing's ancient hardware).
In terms of polygon count, its is only just a bit above the Wii's which is kinda disappointing.
In everything else, as long as it's done right, approaches the Xbox 360 in graphical ability.
Nintendo and some 3rd parties have said similar things in interviews.

To be honest, I see Nintendo bashing everywhere, even on this site, which I came here to avoid Nintendo bashing.

Edit: Oops, sorry, wrong page. lol. Ignore this post.

Wonderfully well spoken. I've been saying the very thing you wrote on other Nintendo fan forums and gaming sites and some people have been agreeing with me. Only you said it better!

On a side note, the word is that Kingdom Hearts 3D is on a home console quality level.

Tokyo thanks and I had heard of that Kingdom Hearts 3D stuff before some time ago, and it's nice to have it quoted. Though I'm sure naysayers will dig at it saying he didn't specify what console so therefore it's probably still gamecube level. Seriously though a little investigation on google among other sources can go a long way to put this joke worthy set of false claims to bed.
