The “Third Party Nintendo” Fantasy

Year after year, when Nintendo is still around, still making hardware, and still relevant in the industry. The people who desperately want them to go “third party” keep making noise. These people don’t care about the damage the industry would suffer if that happened, they don’t care about anything but their own BS. They know damn well Nintendo will never stop making consoles, and it drives them insane. They keep trying and failing year after year to create the perfect storm of Nintendoom that finally “does them in.”

Facts, like how Nintendo is not “on the verge” of bankruptcy, don’t mean anything to them. Reality, to them, is whatever made up Nintendoom narrative they come up with that week. Facts, like how Nintendo is no where near as bad off as Sega was when they left the hardware market, don’t mean anything to them. Why do they want Nintendo to stop making hardware? It ranges from bitter former “fans” mad about them not making “powerful” hardware to your average console warring idiot that probably posted disgusting comments about Iwata when he passed away. But ultimately, it doesn’t matter.

These idiots aren’t relevant to anyone, they don’t matter. Nintendo will never listen to people that want them to stop making hardware. They all say the same kind of garbage. Nintendo is “out of touch”, Nintendo hardware is “garbage.” Nintendo games are all the same.

What the fuck ever.

You say Nintendo isn’t relevant yet you go around to every gaming site leaving the same stupid comments, you’re just trolls with nothing better to do than stir up shit. If you really thought Nintendo was irrelevant you would have no reason to say anything, you just want to rile people up.

It’s been the same crap for 30 years, first it was just the media pushing this “Nintendo is doomed” crap. Now the idiots are much louder and all over the internet. It will never stop, Nintendo will never do what they want.

You don’t actually care that Nintendo going third party would be terrible for them AND the industry, because your REAL fantasy is Nintendo dying off just like the tons of other developers that have closed in the last 10 years.

You’re pathetic, selfish, and a huge stain on the entire gaming industry.

Nintendo has outlasted every competitor that’s come along since they entered the market, and they will be around long after you are gone.

Deal with it.

He's been playing video games his entire life, and has gotten progressively worse at them as he's gotten older and more decrepit. He's been running this place (into the ground) since 2013. He's old. Keeps writing about Nintendo despite mountains of evidence proving he should never write anything. Very old. Lifelong Nintendo fan, doesn't care what you think about that. Did I mention how old he is? Because he's very old.

    Nintendoomers or Pretendos will not go away because to them there is only one way to enjoy games and the fact that Nintendo is still sending waves affecting the industry angers them. They are sick to their stomachs that Nintendo is so relevant that everyone else flails desperately in an attempt to push the mind share in whatever different direction as they did with discs vs cartridges. It’s why VR is being pushed like it is with PC and Sony while people are mostly ignoring the AR potential from Microsoft. Nintendo already has something similar to that so~ it’s poo poo and bad even if it makes more sense to do that.

    Thing is Pretendos know their wants are irrational and stupid, that’s why they repeat themselves everywhere, to make it seem like they are the voice of the people and stir up hive mind mod mentality ignorance. Nintendoomer just want gaming to go the way only they want it to go and can’t appreciate games with actual quality put into them, or that most of those games do not touch their console of choice legally.

    Amazing post. Do you know i start to become annoyed with people saying that the NX is Nintendo’s last chance or their revelance will wane if the NX doesn’t sell well?

      Here’s the problem: if the Wii u isn’t up to their liking, what would make the NX better then the Wii u? It’s a fallacy they can’t address because people are that stupid.

      • Marsega

        And don’t get me started on all of these NX speculation, wish list and rumors that sometimes contradict each other…

        • Titangamecube

          Yeah I know, its dumb.

    Those people just wish that they could live in an alternate reality where Sega won the 16-bit console wars.
