Why Nintendo is For Kids... and Everyone Else Too

  • Published on Aug 9, 2018
  • Nintendo is for kids, yes, but they're for all people... except if you're dead. Haedox recounts on his years of being bullied for liking the Wii U and 3DS, remarking with a positive lesson at the end. Cool.

    My classmates always say that nintendo is bad but for me its Fun and Gameplay > Graphics. PS4 sucks

  • Pineapple on pizza is terrible

    Games are suppost to be fun, not to prove a point. Why play if it's not fun. People that say Nintendo games (mainly Mario and Pokemon) are childish are insecure normies.

    Interesting topic, I was always looked down for liking Nintendo stuff, not bashed or hated, but looked down a bit, I've never gave a shit so eh.
    Nowadays with the Switch I just feel that people are starting to like Nintendo stuff, which is really good!
    Also I can always use on my advantage that I was a Hardcore Nintendo fan since I was around 7 (and Mario around 2)

  • Wind of change
    Wind of change 6 months ago

    Thing is it kinda was, that was basically Nintendo's entire schtick for a while, Their products appealed more to children of a young age and marketed as either for kids or the entire family, their consoles have never had great 3rd party support either and thus a limited variety of game types, which also means a limited variety of consumers.
    That is up until recently with the switch's release. The switch has best third party support Nintendo has ever had with a console, with a huge variety of games on it, from small indie titles to major triple A games like skyrim and doom, that is what has brought in the bigger variety of audiences, besides the usual audiences.
    It's a console that was marketed for everybody of any age or gender, which is a stark comparison to prior consoles. Nintendo of today is very different to Nintendo of the past.

    Nintendo needs to stop marketing towards kids because the last time they targeted hard-core gamers was since the game cube well luckily now they’re doing it doing it with the Nintendo switch and the Wii you failed because they didn’t target a hard core audience and that’s what happens if you target kids nothing but kids because if you target kids You’re leaving out everyone else

    There's nothing inherently wrong with having a preference for Nintendo games. It just gives the other impression. It's like saying "those" other games AREN'T for me so I'll play with Nintendo stuff. I guess.

    One time some 15 year old looked at me playing my Switch and said
    “You play Nintendo? The only people who play that are man-children and toddlers!”
    Then I asked, “And what do you play?”
    “GTA V, Fortnite, Halo...” (He also said a couple others, but I forgot what they were)
    “Mhm.” And then I walked away.

    Nintendo's ability to appeal to such a large audience is a part of why they're such a good company in my opinion. Kids can enjoy their games, teenagers can enjoy their games, and many adults who grew up with the NES and have nostalgia for Nintendo can enjoy playing the games with their children. My mom used to love Super Mario Bros. 3 back in the day, and nowadays she sometimes plays Mario Kart with me. My brother joins in too. Always lots of fun.
