You could pretty much keep the list that. Actually, add Starcraft and Mario 64 and you're done. Minecraft in another 5 to 10 years.
WoW is the popularisation and biggest rpg of all time so you really don't need another one.
Really, keep the games to that, games that have been game changers and massive.

DooM is THE fps, no need for call of duty or halo as it invented the genre and was huge.



Ferret commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Could Use Google's Android...:

God no! Seriously.... android sucks. That simple.

Micro stutters here we come... Too much hardware fragmentation ruins operating systems and prevents developing getting the most out of the system. Carmack has for quite some time expressed his lack of desire for anything developer related on android.



Ferret commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Legacy Makes The Vir...:

Simple. Time to make all Nintendo first party games available in the virtual console. If the game is more than one generation old. i.e.. Gamecube games, then they all be available for free on any Nintendo system. If Nintendo want to make serious $$$ and rule the roost this would be the way to do it. When you buy the system you buy all the virtual console games too.

Even if Sony or Microsoft did the same thing on their console they haven't got anywhere near the level of quality or retro factor that Nintendo does.



Ferret commented on Captain Toad Won't Be Tracking Treasure In Eur...:

Wow. Serious drought for the next 6 months. Not a huge fan of smash, hyrule warriors is apparently struggling to even be a consistent 30fps according to projared. Captain Toad is definitely the one I wanted. I wouldn't doubt it if they end up delaying it in the us and japan yet too.



Ferret commented on Mario Kart Month: An Outsider's View Of Super ...:

SMK will always be the best racing game of all time. Con trolls are fantastic and the tracks actually force you to be good. I hate all these wide tracks nowadays on Mario Kart as you really don't have to be good at racing the karts.



Ferret commented on $1.2 Billion Wiped Off Nintendo's Market Value...:

Really, Nintendo has so much $$$ worth of back catalogue and IP it just isn't funny.


Flat monthly subscription fee for Nintendo's entire VC catalogue on Wii U. That's NES, SNES, N64, GC, Wii, GBA, GB, GBC, DS. Watch so many $$$ roll in it ain't funny.



Ferret commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd January (Europe):

VC is pathetic.

Nintendo needs to release all their VC back catalogue on Wii U and charge a monthly fee a la xbox live membership. Hell, throw a heap of GC and Wii titles on there too. Nintendo could wipe the floor with PS4 and Xbox if they provided something like this. Who in their right mind would buy a competing console when you could access so many games for a flat monthly fee?!?



Ferret commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

Great Soap box.

The game is rated R18+ here in Australia which means it's restricted. Irresponsible parents can actually be charged for giving and letting their kids play this game. The sad thing is that kids will be exposed to this sadistic game. It's not satire. Their game is exactly the sort of thing that they are satirising.



Ferret commented on Leaked Ubisoft Games Confirmed, but Skipping N...:

Hmmm. I really really find Valiant Hearts personally disturbing. Stylised world war 1 without showing any gritty realism. War is NOT a cartoon. I don't like how the soldiers are just blown apart at the start and because of the art style there is no impact. The art style trivialises the content. I cannot in good mind buy or even support this game.

On the other hand, Child of the light looks absolutely fantastic.



Ferret commented on Talking Point: With Calls for Nintendo to Foll...:


I agree. They should be buying up as many developers as they can big time. Nintendo will be fine, if the Wii U is not as big of a success then big deal. Nintendo can cope with it financially and the 3DS will keep them profitable in the short term anyway.

If the PS4 doesn't go as well as anticipated then Sony is pretty much out of the console business. The company is in debt up to their eyeballs and they can't afford unprofitable divisions.

Please, can people stop bringing up the new IP crap. Nintendo just launched a fantastic new IP in Wonderful 101. Unless it's a new style of game (ala sandbox minecraft etc.) a new IP doesn't make any difference. You could call it Mario Sandbox and it wouldn't make any difference.

Advertising is half the trouble with Nintendo. They should've licensed the production of a Wonderful 101 cartoon/movie to be made. That would've been some killer advertising. Maybe they'll step up advertising in the lead up to christmas.

All Nintendo really has to do to make the Wii U a success would be to produce a Pokemon rpg for it anyway.



Ferret commented on Talking Point: With Calls for Nintendo to Foll...:

It's fashionable to rip on Nintendo at the moment. Financially, there isn't a cause for concern with Nintendo, there is cause for concern with Sony and Microsoft's gaming divisions but they don't get ripped on. Go figure.



Ferret commented on The Wii U Continues to Struggle in Japanese Ch...:


Yep. I'm almost considering buying a Japanese version seeing as Nintendo produced so little of the Japanese version. Wait for prices to bottom out, then snatch some copies up.

Fantastic game. New IP with creativity. Of course it isn't going to sell well as as it gives all the haters the exact thing they've been whining that Nintendo doesn't do.
