Enthusiasm makes gaming better

Male, 21, Rest of the World

My earliest childhood memories involve my parents teaching me how to play Zelda, Mario and many puzzle games. I think that enthusiasm has been lacking in Gaming over the years, so I would love to be able to meet more optimistic gamers here!

I knew that Dynasty Warriors was very popular over in Japan, but i was not aware that it was a game enjoying similar popularity as Dragon Quest...
.. Actually, scratch that, I've heard about Dragon Quest sales in Japan, and they seem to be unbeatable.

I don't think this is necessarily a problem with Nintendo.
I think its just the industry going back to the days where gaming wasn't as mainstream as it is today, but that's just what I see around me since many of my friends, once passionate gamers, have stopped caring about the hobby for the most part or just stick to older games and systems to save money.

Personally, I think the Wii U and 3DS have brought me more joy than the last 4 years of gaming, but that is just my own taste. I am very sad to see Nintendo losing money when they are developing and publishing quality products like the games that I am currently enjoying so much. It seems I am in the minority though, as most people seem very disappointed with everything (not just Nintendo).

I do agree, and I think a good example would be the new Fire Emblem that I am currently playing.
It has a grand story, and even though it takes time to tell itself, the actual gameplay is never lost. Short 2 minute sequences before and after playing 20-30 minute battles explain what is going on, giving us a ratio of 90% gameplay with 10% story.

Perfect in my books. Granted, Kid Icarus does it 'better', though its approach to storytelling confused me because I could not pay attention to both story and action at the same time.

Either way, its a great topic to discuss!
