Top 10 Reasons You Shouldn't Hate Nintendo

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 Gaming most likely would never have evolved to the degree that it has without them
2 Even despite being absolutely horrible as a company, the almost-indisputable fact of them being the world's most creative and overall highest-quality video game developer still arguably holds true
3 In addition to their own incredibly iconic, innovative and brilliant game franchises, they also gave birth to numerous equally classic gems from third-party affiliates (Mega Man, Castlevania, Metal Gear, Classic Sonic/Crash, et cetera)
4 Their excessive idolization of Mario, Zelda and Pokémon (and horrible neglect of basically all of their other franchises) is really just a part of business; they simply need to focus on the things that make the most money for them
5 They've proven time and time again that you don't actually need the most powerful system to make the best games (Ocarina Of Time/Majora's Mask, Xenoblade Chronicles, Mother 3, Metroid Prime, Smash Bros, Mario Kart, etc)

Super Smash Bros (The entire series), Mario 64, and Ocarina Of Time/Majora's Mask are considered the greatest games ever made (above Grand Theft Auto V which is ranked #5) - Kid_ethinederland

6 No, they don't make "kiddie" games; they make all-ages games (and there is actually a very big difference indeed)
7 Although their graphical hardware is often noticeably outdated, Nintendo's mastery in the field of art styles still makes their games look absolutely gorgeous regardless (Breath Of The Wild, Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime Trilogy, etc)
8 Contrary to popular belief, they didn't actually fully take down Another Metroid 2 Remake, nor did they want to
9 We wouldn't have the Angry Video Game Nerd without them
10 The existence of Hotel Mario and the Zelda CD-i games was only about one-third or maybe halfway their fault at worst

The Contenders

11 Video game memes would never have become the cultural phenomenon that they are now if not for Nintendo
12 No one makes more precisely-controlling games than Nintendo and its affiliates
13 All of today's instant-classic indie games were heavily inspired by Nintendo's influence
14 Castlevania would've had a much harder time evolving into its Metroidvania form if not for Nintendo's Metroid series
15 At heart, they really do just want to make gamers happy
16 They make E3 fun to watch
