chess227 commented on Video: Today's Teens Simply Cannot Handle The ...:

This is what happens when you let today's "gamers" who are used to the A.D.D. gameplay of Call of Duty and silly app games play classic games that actually took thought, time, and skill to beat.

It's not necessarily a knock against them, but gamers who grew up on app games and post-playstation 1 are really used to a different type of gameplay.

chess227 commented on Nintendo Network Services Now Starting to "Ope...:

You know.... I love nintendo as much as the next person, but I am not willing to give them a pass on this. For them to set such lofty sales goals and then not be prepared for the traffic is pathetic. Since most people are already critical of nintendo's online system being so lackluster, it is disappointing that they just proved it is less than stellar. Heck, half of my friends didnt even know nintendo had online capabilities for online multiplayer games when I got my wii.... Goes to show they have a long way to go on promoting the online functionality of their system. I don't care that I couldn't log into eshop for a few days but it is a HORRIBLE way to welcome new users who may or may not have been apprehensive to begin with.

I actually skipped the GameCube and wii because I didn't love the direction nintendo was going plus my brother owned an xbox 360 and I got that to play online but like so many, I am very put off by the next gen systems. Microsoft lost me completely with their kinect required and drm even through they back peddled, but I will not ever buy a system that requires me to install games onto a hard drive... I have heard reports people with ps4 have installed 2 games and 2 downloaded games and they have 330gb left on their drive. Over the years of downloading games, that will shrink massively and I am the kind of person who likes to play multiple games at times and who wants to wait for that game to install on the hard drive and then if to need the room, you will have to uninstall the game which kind of sucks. I have kind of burned out on first person shooters online as well and you couple that with nintendos amazing first party games , I decided to purchase a wii u a few weeks ago when the new Mario bundle came out. Maybe I am an optimist, but I think people are going to get tired of gaming consoles dictating how they can enjoy their games. If nintendo beefed up their online system, it would really help expand their market. But for now, my next gen console is solely the wii u

I may be an optimist but I ignored the wii and the GameCube and spent last generation on an xbox. I am not getting an xbox one due to privacy concerns and not getting a ps4 because I have never liked their online system. I think nintendo has a lot of shortcomings but to me it is the system I will be buying. It pushed me over the edge when I saw the new Mario/luigi bundle coming and with my son turning 5 next year, I think it will be a great system to bring him up on. I was 5 when I played the original NES for the first time and want him to enjoy the same games I did. To me, I think the lackluster launch of the ps4 and xbox one will help nintendo tremendously. I know a lot of people who are waiting to buy the next gen systems and for parents looking to buy a system this Christmas, the wii u does look nice with the new bundled software. It's also nice that so many games already released are already so cheap. I have faith in them but they have made a LOT of mistakes. The best thing that happened to them was having so many next gen titles delayed. Hopefully that will pay off
