Top 10 Things that the Nintendo Haters Actually Have a Point About

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 Nintendo is a highly greedy and corrupt company underneath its warm and friendly exterior, even going as far as to sue the creators of amazingly well-made fangames and then blatantly steal their ideas for themselves

As long as they're not like Disney, then everything is fine... Being greedy and corrupt is never okay.

Like what they did to Redigit for Super Mario Bros. X and make Super Mario Maker? - TheYoshiPyro64

2 Nintendo is stuck in the past
3 Nintendo has casualized the vast majority of its games far too much over the years, starting with the SNES era, and thus quickly ended up making them WAY too easy
4 As a game developer, they're easily the best in the world indeed, but still incredibly overrated regardless (looking at you three especially, Mario and Zelda and Pokémon)
5 Nintendo's fanbase (for the most part) is easily just as petty and childish as Sony's and Microsoft's, if not even more so
6 Many other developers have made games that are easily just as good and polished as Nintendo's, but have sadly not gotten nearly as much recognition for it (Konami, Capcom, Naughty Dog, etc)
7 Nintendo's consoles are weak
8 Even Nintendo HAS, in fact, made genuinely bad games before (Yoshi's Story, Metroid Prime Federation Force, Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, Paper Mario Sticker Star, etc)

Paper Mario Sticker Star is good actually - LarrytheFairy

9 Nintendo really, really, REALLY needs to pay more attention and respect to Metroid, F-Zero and Star Fox

I agree on this one, especially since I like all three of those franchises.

I do agree

10 Overall, Sony is better

That's a preference, which doesn't change a single thing about Nintendo. - TheYoshiPyro64

Sony pony lol

They produced more varities than Nintendo, I am not hyped about Nintendo that I used to be.

That is an opinion. a trash opinion, but still an opinion

The Contenders

11 While there's certainly nothing wrong with the all-ages schtick, Nintendo really should try making its overall game library lean a bit less heavily on the kiddy side of things
12 The music of Nintendo games is often better than the actual games themselves

Super Metroid and Earthbound, anyone? - xandermartin98

13 Many of Nintendo's characters are admittedly bland and one-dimensional

A certain princess and her recolors come to mind. - WendyIsQueen

14 Majora's Mask and Mother 3 are NOT as dark as people make them out to be
15 In many ways, Earthbound's fanbase is actually almost as bad as Undertale's if not worse
16 The last time Nintendo actually made a full-fledged home console that was technologically up-to-date was honestly the Gamecube
17 The "friend code" thing was stupid
18 Nintendo really needs to make a better infrastructure for online play
19 Their ideas for consoles are somehow managing to get progressively worse over the years, not even mentioning the Virtual Boy from all the way back in the late 90s
20 In an ideal world, they already would've joined forces with Sony and Microsoft a very long time ago
21 Zelda fans are snobby jerks
22 It's actually largely their fault that Undertale's fanbase exists
23 They probably could have saved the Mega Man and Castlevania franchises if they just weren't so lazy
24 Super Smash Bros is without a doubt the absolute most overrated fighting game franchise to ever exist
25 They really need to put some slightly deeper gameplay mechanics into their games
26 Many of their older games really haven't held up very well, contrary to popular belief
27 You'd think they would've learned the importance of third-party support after it almost single-handedly carried them through the NES era
28 If you take away the first-party Nintendo titles, it's pretty easy to forget that the Wii even has good games on it.
29 Nintendo relies way too heavily on art styles when designing graphics for its games
30 Nintendo games tend to be some of the only games on their systems that have notably good graphics
