@Yorumi I mean, I'd usually retort somehow. But if you genuinely (or just pretend to) think "dude" is name calling, then I don't even know what I'd say. And you continue to claim saying things you never said or did. There really is no counter to that powerful of trolling ability. You win, dude. =D

@Yorumi dude it was established in the conversation that the common perception is colorful = kiddy, appropriate or not. I used them interchangeably b/c of that. I never said I thought they were synonyms or that I agreed w/ that perception. I know you know this, you're just arguing b/c you're stubborn. And you're doing the same kind of erroneous association w/ dark, grim+gritty games. And what if I meant "colorful" in personality and not actual visuals? But whatever dude. Just believe what you want to believe, since you clearly will anyway.

@ Yorumi I suppose I misread what you were saying, assuming a lot of your comments were directed at me, when they were really directed at general gamers (so I assume).

Besides that, I completely disagree w/ almost everything you say. You group games you just classify as "dark and gritty" w/o any "good story" (I assume you mean like CoD, God of War, etc) w/ game w/ actually good stories, stories that have had numerous analytical articles from various publications (even Forbes.com) like Last of Us and BioShock Infinite. Maybe if you actually played those games instead of just criticized them, you may know the difference.

And yes I have played Tales games. Like i said, by JRPG standards (emphasis on JRPG) they aren't kiddy games.

@yorumi I associate colorful w/ kiddy, b/c that's how the common perception is, fair or not. And a developer/publisher has to play into those perceptions, whether you like it or not.

Besides, I wouldn't call either the Xeno games or Tales games colorful or kiddy. They are fairly mature, by JRPG standards (that's another topic - the storytelling standards of Western games vs Japanese games. If you noticed, coincidentally, all the games I listed were Western).

What colorful kiddy games have emotional or thought-provoking stories??? Zelda series? Mario RPGs? Great stories, yeah. But nothing compared Bastion, BioShock Infinite, Deus Ex, Last of Us, etc in the emotional or thought-provoking department.

another example on lack of QUANTITY of variety is Bayonetta 2. Sure that can satisfy the action genre for those who like God of War or D Souls or Uncharted. BUT THAT'S ONE GAME. What do fans of that genre do once they beat Bayonetta 2 after a week? Wait another 3 years until Bayonetta 3? If that'll even be Nintendo exclusive.

@Bigmac1910
yeah, I kind of agree. The comments here wreak of bias and fanboyism.

The article was well-written and makes sense. Sure Wii U doesn't need 3rd-party support. But what it does need is more diversity in titles. Yeah, W101, X, Pikmin, etc are all parts of Nintendo's variety. But that's just a few titles. Variety and diversity can only be taken so far by a single company, even if that company has a dozen development teams.

Besides, Nintendo is never going to make games like D Souls, MGS, God of War, BioShock, etc. Some may say the common thread here is violence, but it doesn't have to be. Nintendo can make games like these w/o any blood or over-exaggerated violence. But they don't even bother b/c they've always been more focused on a more colorful, caricature, kid-friendly type of style. That is why 3rd-party support is so vital currently for the Wii U - diversification (spice of life, right?) is what flourishes in today's gaming world.

Ppl keep claiming it's "garbage", but what is their justification for that? Have they played D Souls? Have they played Last of Us? Have they played BioShock Infinite? Have they played GTA4? Anyone who calls those games garbage is a moron, plain and simple.

cheesesteak7 commented on Ian Livingstone: Nintendo Should Have Their IP...:

i'm surprised how many ppl are missing the subtext of his point (or maybe I shouldn't be surprised...?). Wii U isn't succeeding that well. Heavy speculation is Nintendo will have to go the 3rd-party route in order to survive. He's simply implying a re-emphasis on that. He's basically saying "this next console generation will be dominated by PS4/Xbone. If Nintendo doesn't make 3rd-party games, then for the next 10 years, the great majority of new gamers won't play their IPs."

Unless Nintendo gets in a new console in the next few years, he'll probably be right. If Wii U is to compete w/ PS4/Xbone in this console generation, expected to last a decade, Wii U simply won't be played in as many households as previous Nintendo consoles. Therefore, restricting the amount of new gamers who experience Mario, DK, Metroid, etc.
