@LunaticPandora "Oh and Nintendo + hard drives = never gonna happen. I suggest you forget about that pipe dream as quickly as you thought about it."

Why? If they want to sell games online, they need more storage space than that. I've filled consoles with much larger hard drives just from online purchases. I'm saying it right now: giving my console the same storage space as my smartphone is not good enough.

"They turned it into a button mash with linear dungeons and a bunch of restrictions on what you can do. Heck they even massively locked down the engine heavily restricting modding."

Haven't seen delusion like that in a while. Bethesda have always encouraged modding of their games. Skyrim has Steamworks for Mithras' sake. There are entire websites dedicated to modding it. And given that the basic structure of the game is similar to previous installments I don't get how you go from a massively open world game to "button masher". If that were a Zelda title you'd praise it from dawn to dusk, you fanboy.

"Why didn't lego city not receive even a fraction of the hype gta did?"

Because Lego City wasn't that great of a game and didn't have a proven track record of fun experiences? GTA's popular because it does a lot of things incredibly well, and it's not nearly as bad as people who haven't played it (like yourself) make out. GTA V is a very well built game that has some spectacular online gameplay, something Ninty has never been very good at.

You won't fix Nintendo by complaining about how bad you think everything not made by them is, or by miscategorising all of western development by COD and GTA.
