Score one for the bboy You just got a 1-Up bud. B-)

Anyways, Super Mario Galaxy, Klonoa, Wario Land Shake it!, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Metroid Prime 3, Super Paper Mario ect ect were totaly gorgeous the last time I checked. Anybody who labels those titles with horrible graphics have completely lost it....Mandabole, you don't need highly detailed HD graphics to make a 'pretty game' there's a little thing called 'Art Direction'
Whenever I fire up Super Mario Bros 1 & 2(for ex) on the Nes I'm still captured by the pretty 8-bit colorful graphics.

There are games that have aged well and games that haven't, most of the stuff from the 8 and 16 bit era haved aged perfectly, step inside the N64/PS1 arena and that's an entirely different story all together. Frame rates below 30fps have a lot to do with this as well.

And of course the nintendo cheerleaders cannot stand the facts. Are you suggesting me to leave "your forum" BTW?

The Wii has the power to have better graphics than the GC at the cost of the extra memory that the Wii doesnt have, you can notice it quite well with Wii Metroid Prime, it has obviously better graphics than the GC versions, but for "some reason" every two steps you will have the game stopped and loading from disk. And with the 3DS, who knows, so far there are no games to really compare, but the first signals of weakness are already there with the low FPS problems detected with Resident evil. Anyway, defending the graphic quality of Animal Crossing for any platform is beyond any logic.

Nope, I suggest you leave because you bother me. I tend not to like things that bother me. Every 2 steps Metroid loads huh? Wow, I guess the Wii really does suck then, huh? I've seen the light! Go Sony! Go Microsoft! Nintendo sucks! Your work here is done. The door is right over there :)

Are you guys joking? So these graphics are outstanding??? Do you see there anything in particular that the N64 could not render? Do you think that a Game Cube cannot do that? If that's your concept of good graphics then how would you categorize this?

It's all relative, really. Of course no 3DS game can stand up to something like Skyrim (which looks hella sweet, btw) but that's not a fair comparison.

Mandoble, what in the world are you talking about? I own the Metroid Trilogy and that NEVER EVER happens. Sorry dude, but don't make things up, it just makes people take you even less seriously. And no one said Animal Crossing is like Crysis 2 :P they just asked if it looked better than the Wii one, jeez. You must be one of them "IT MUST HAVE GOOOOD GRAPHICS OR THE GAME SUCKS!" kind of people.

metroid prime were stunning for what the console was capable of. the art direction was great, but everything is cleverly handled so the lack of horsepower can be managed, or bypassed with visual tricks.

but nintendo is all about gameplay and innovation. theyre the ones daring to integrate new concepts to their machines. the Wii motion control, the 3d slider, the virtual boy (erm erm hahaha that was unique isnt it?)
an handheld gaming system wouldnt possible if it wasnt of the original gameboy.
(well, milton bradley had that microvision thing first but...it was... . anywaaaaayyy)

im a nintendo fan. but i hate to say this, they are outclassed in graphical term. but comon, thats not why we love nintendo, right ?

Mandoble clearly doesn't play games to have fun.....
All of this nit picky graphics BS is really getting on my nerves.

So Mandoble, does this mean you can't bare to play any of those so called NES and SNES classics, which have all for the most part aged wonderfully? I'm guessing Sprites don't cut it in that super HD high resolution realistic world of yours.

Graphics don't mean everything. And Nintendo was hardcore way before Halo or Call of Duty came out.

Stay civil and don't resort to name-calling. Be sensible.

@Matillion: I agree. Back on topic! 3DS graphics as a whole is about comparable to Wii graphics as a whole. Done :)

And Mandoble, your a troll just here to start fights with Nintendo fans. I agree with bboy, please leave, what you say means nothing to Nintendo fans, also, your not a gamer if thats your attitude. Graphics don't mean everything. And Nintendo was hardcore way before Halo or Call of Duty came out. So get out you elitist scumbag. :)

What welcoming and delightful posters we have here. You guys know if you disagree with mandabole you don't have to attack him, right?

Glad to see I'm not alone :D Away with you, troll!

@Fox: Having a different opinion is one thing but I'm starting to suspect he is just trying to start something. That is trolling and it tends to not be appreciated on these boards or any others.

I'd say the 3DS doesn't quite pack the polygon power as the Wii, but it's got some pretty radical Shaders to give the illusion that it looks on par or maybe even better in ways. PLUS turn up the 3D slider which amps up the wow factor and crispness and you got one little punchy beautiful effect.

Also, compare Super Mario Galaxy 2 to Super Mario 3D Land. Clearly there's a diference in graphical power where the Wii easily outshines it, the same goes for Pit's model in SSB Brawl compared to Uprising. Not that I care. :p Hell I'd be just as excited or maybe even more so for another 8 or 16-bit Mario sequal. :D

The_Fox, that was more for personal enjoyment than an attack, lol. I just hate how Nintendo fans are always the underdog with people like him. That attitude will ruin gaming just like Iwata has said before, it's all about graphics to people. They won't even give half the old good games a chance because they don't look good enough. :P Really dumb in my opinion, but yeah, I'm done with him, back on topic lol.

I think Mand's Wii doesn't like him and that's why the framerate chugs. It happens. Your consoles know when you're badmouthing their people. Careful. One day, that self-loading disc slot will shoot a disc at you. Keep it up :)

Exactly what I was trying to say. While 3DS might not have the raw power, it has the visual tricks to make it look fairly on par with Wii. And tricks or not, visuals are visuals no matter how they get done :)
