    Nope, I am still playing it with my friends and playing Mario Party 10. And Mario Kart 11.
    And not just us, there are millions of people still playing, so don't assume its dying just because its been out for 7 years.
    A brand can be always popular, like a computer or game.

    Just keep on being a gamer!

    No .... They are sexy machines that are getting rarer every day.. As a kid there were loads of Nintendo products i still collect only because of pure memories.. There is nothing like playing pokemon emerald and transfering pokemon to gamecube or ds these days...

    Or playing pokemon stadium or zelda or conkers bad fur day or 007

    There are people being vultures every day for rom's and flash carts n such only because they don't want it to be just... a memory

    Well said! I fully agree, in fact just last weekend I purchased a Pokemon Yellow Cartridge for my GBA SP. I also happen to have Sapphire, Leafgreen, Emerald, Gold, Silver, and Crystal. You see I'm an avid shiny hunter, so far the only games I don't have a shiny on are Gold and Silver, every other game has at least 2 full odds shinies.

    I know what you mean, I used to only play a randomized version of my Sapphire rom hack, now I play the original cart.

    My opinion on Nintendo:
    Lack of Innovation-
    Nintendo has not made anything good like the DS and Wii.
    Everyone reading this had to own a DS or Wii.
    Wii U and the 3DS aren't supported much by third party developers and not many Wii U's are selling.
    Consoles/Marketing
    Nintendo's recent consoles haven't it off as well as the DS and Wii did. They are struggling to top what they have already did before. They haven't marketed well either and if it is true, they are pulling the plug on Wii U production.
    Diehard Community:
    Nintendo may has the greatest and most loyal community of all time. Not even lying, people have stuck with them since the beginning and they will stay till the company falls apart.
    Concluding Thoughts:
    Nintendo needs some new innovative thing like motion sensor technology when they released the Wii as no one had it at that time. Loyal fans will continue to support them and they need to go back to the basics and make new games that will make the fans go crazy for. Nintendo needs to take the time as they do have the talent to transform their company around. Though, if they miss their opportunity again, Nintendo will suffer a long, painful death.

    Some of the games have been ok, though no newer game has been amazing at all.

    I doubt you have played much of Nintendos games, but it's your opinion.

    For me, I have never owned an xbox/playstation, but I have owned a wii, wii u, 3ds ,ds lite, and ds as well as gameboy colour.
    It's simply because of the exclusives, I know it may seem childish but all these games such as pokemon, zelda, xenoblade are all available only to nintendo, and they are so unique compared to the boring, toxic child filled games such as battlefield and COD on ps4 and xbone. Also, it may just be nostalgia, as most AAA games are multiplayer now and fast paced, so its always good to chill out to a game its very hard to get annoyed with.

    I can agree, however I do enjoy a good Halo match every now and then, although I prefer to play Mario Maker as of late.

    I wish they would listen to the world and make a console that would have a nice marketplace like microsoft's allowing you to download a nice heap of nintendo games that were made since day 1 from generations of nintendo consoles and make it possable to play any iso rom device via plug in a controller to a usb hub or something be able to buy attatchments to customise it in a special way for oldschool gameing and new... bluetooth a big hdd .... omg they would have a lot of work to do maybey that's what there working on ..... A good console that we want... But that is going to be a lot of work to keep our memories alive... But in my eyes nintendo needs to step back and give the community what they want... Not 50 systems just one.... Its possable...

    It's always difficult to provide what the fans want. What you're asking for would be incredibly expensive, so much so that no one would want to purchase the console in the first place.

    The problem with Nintendo is that they're just always behind on the hardware side off it, They can't produce a decent console but in the handheld community they've got a monopoly, But the handheld community isn't as big as the console gaming community or PC gaming community. The lack of newer games hitting Nintendo's consoles have been a big factor too. The very popular games like GTA or Call of Duty aren't able to run on the Nintendo platform. This is due to the hardware lack

    Yeah but even if those games could run on Nintendo consoles, Nintendo wouldn't allow it as they have slowly become more pussified over the years and won't put anything with over a 'T' rating onto their consoles.

    Other company's made sacrifices to make money and still profit. Microsoft made 3 top of the line consoles xbox,xbox360,xbox one, all which paid off and sure the first of the 360's had hardware issues big whoop xbox one does to... Sony made 4 top of the line consoles ps1 ps2 ps3 and ps4... The same thing happened to ps3 it got a lot of hardware issues and so did ps4.... But they still banked off them and still do.... Now if nintendo would pull off a quickie like sony and microsoft and make a console wort buying they wouldn't be so stressed out and maybe sonic the hedgehog would be able to profit a little cash to feed his hedgelings one day... Not saying they can or they care... They are backed up into a totally legal battle with people and they feel cornered so im curious what there next big move is going to be and if they wish to cherish our memories and provide us with a marketplace that is totally up to them... I'm just sayin while sony and microsoft profit nintendo is fadeing away but no... It's not dying kids over in africa or acrost the world that have no food or shelter or money are DYING.[DOUBLEPOST=1460264801][/DOUBLEPOST]We should consider ourself's lucky to even think about them makeing a quick or long recovery.[DOUBLEPOST=1460264909][/DOUBLEPOST]Money is king yes but sacrifices were made to profit i don't know if nintendo reading this one day will even care... ethier lol
