    People cherished playing there games... The good one's bad ones old one new ones everything that nintendo made so far has held up to the promise of them delivering good effective stuff without red rings and blue lights of death to. They haven't seen the light yet what it could be is something that we all could enjoy one day ... Or just a whatever another company dropping out.

    I don't think Nintendo is dying at all.

    Compared to other gaming console sales, Nintendo may be lacking in the numbers, but Nintendo fans are true followers.

    Nintendo has always stuck to their formula. PS4, One, Steam Machine, etc. all are very powerful machines capable of rendering very beautiful graphic environments in vivid detail. They, like gaming PC's are powerhouses, designed to bring the most immersive experience possible.

    Nintendo makes games for fun, for families, for entertainment and relaxation. Nintendo games aren't released on other consoles, and vice versa. The simple fact that to play a game with the name Mario or Zelda on the box, means you must own a Nintendo device, is why they haven't died.

    They have their own market.

    Its really a matter of opinion if they are dying i think as a company they'll be fine but the numbers and new consoles i feel like they are not really getting better don't get me wrong though i mean no hate or disrespect toward Nintendo but i feel like after there main seller games like Pokemon,zelda,Mario, etc. start becoming less and less popular they'll stop selling if they don't do something different it'll end up like segas Dreamcast

    Yeah I think so. IMO they need to make a Gamecube 2 or just some kind of console that actually competes with Sony and Microsoft. I remember I played Call of Duty on the Wii and it was just awful. The only reason they're still around IMO is because they're recycling titles like Pokemon, Super Smash Bros, Mario, Donkey Kong, and Zelda that are all exclusive to Nintendo.

    I don't think recycling is the proper term, true they DO make a lot of "remake" titles, especially for pokemon, but I think Mario Maker, as well as Splatoon, and other, more recent games are what's keeping people around.

    Well IMO I think it is lol. I mean Mario Maker is alright but I think most of the titles are dead. I mean games like Super Smash Bros and Pokemon are fun to play for a bit but I feel like the games they're popular for aren't as addicting as the games I play on Xbox nowadays.(Overwatch, Halo, Fallout, Gears of War)

    It's ironic you say that because I feel games like Halo and Battlefront aren't nearly as good or addictive as they once were.

    Nah, I guess they just don't appeal to every audience, or as much in comparison to PS4 and XB1.

    I think they won't "die", but there will be a drop. Their highest peak was obviously the NES days, but the DS/Wii combo achieved them a lot of sales.

    I think it is the same as when Disney films were going down. However they came back up and I bet NX will be the turning point they need. I just have a feeling NX will be very fun and have solid games[DOUBLEPOST=1466353461][/DOUBLEPOST]
    I don't I think they are more popular myself. Maybe it is the people I hang with and the sites I'm on but I see more talk about smash and Pokemon than I ever do with Call of Duty or Gears. Overwatch has a short of anime thing to it so I do get why that is big and all over the place. It is colorful and not as dull looking as Fallout or Gears so that may be a reason

    Yeah most gamers I know are into anime so Nintendo and japanese stuff like Sony makes is what they are into not to say I don't like things non japanese but they have to have a certain charm. Like I hate Bethseda games due to not feeling any charm. (Nnot saying they are bad or anything just a preference) Which is why I never understood the whole GoTY concept since a lot of it is only usa made games leaving a lot of good games out sadly

    I feel like it's a fair point on both sides like the Nintendo games and consoles software appeals to family's and kids while the regular consoles like Xbox and Playstation are more for the casual gamer that likes better graphics with a really detailed story while as Nintendo games are kind of repetitive with a couple new elements added I'm not bias toward either side and yes Nintendo games are colorful but I don't think one good console will bring back years of lost profit by no means and as you said most casual gamers do typically like anime stuff (I'm not saying all people) and because that I feel it helps Sony and Microsoft more because they release games like naruto, God eater, DBZ for example but I think Nintendo will make a comeback like with games like spectrobes I was amazed by it when I first played it and I'm looking forward to the nx console

    I don't think so. 3DS looks like something I'd love to jump on board with. Sure Wii U is lackluster but I don't think one bad system should mean anything. now if NX fails ok we have an issue
