Why do people hate Nintendo?

Discuss new games or share memories of old

Nintendo is arguably the most influential video game company ever, so what with all the hate? I understand the Wii U is not selling like hotcakes (which caused every other video game company to turn against Nintendo), but the company has such a legacy. :?

It may have something to do with Nintendo wanting a cut from youtubers that make "lets plays" of their games (if that is still applicable).

Maybe ask the people who said they hate Nintendo. I wasn't aware anyone on this forum did.

Who hates nintendo? they're generally the least hated out of all the major players because they have a focus on quality and tend to not ship garbage. Wii U gets a lot of flak for lacking third party games, but really it's a moot point since the games you'd want a Wii U for are all very polished and fun. It's not a "fifa and cod" console so it doesn't sell to the lowest common denominator of gamers, which is a big part of why it has lower sales. Sales don't really reflect quality though... Candy Crush makes more money than nintendo as a whole annually, i wouldn't say Candy Crush is a better product than all nintendo content combined because of it though.

Agree with everyone. I had no idea people hated Nintendo, I mean every game consoles will have it's haters, but I would think that Nintendo would probably rank in the lowest.

Considering games100 just dropped this - quite nonsensical - post and left, I'm tempted to believe it's borderline trolling.

Hopefully he'll respond soon and clarify.

I wouldn't say people *HATE* Nintendo, but they have become very out of touch with their own IP's over the years and their games aren't that good anymore. But I mean...people need to realize that the Nintendo of the 90's and the Nintendo now is literally a different company / different staff, so, whatever. It's not like there aren't a million nintendo fangames out there anyway.

I love Nintendo. Love the first party games. Dislike the lack of third party support.
