Many of you people probably also saw my earlier rant on 3DS. Well, this is a continuation of that rant, only a little more spread out.

Does anyone here agree with me that Nintendo is digging their own grave?

I personally think this has been happening for a couple years now.

First off, just look at the wii games they've been releasing recently:

Mario Party 9
Rhythm Heaven Fever
PokePark 2: Wonders Beyond

Notice how all of them are sequels to games that were all unpopular (Minus Mario Party, although 8 was definitely disliked). It's like, seriously?

Mario Party got old a long time ago, the first three were fun, four was eh, five was eh, six and seven were fun for a while, and 8 was just an absolute wreck with the creepy mascot dude.
Rhythm Heaven DS was the worst, most pointless game I ever played and I ARed it so I could have all the games. I think the wii version would just be painful.
PokePark just looks like a game meant to appeal to the 7 year old boys who watch Pokemon on Saturday mornings.

I'm disappointed by the fact Nintendo can no longer come up with games that are original, and different.
It's just all sequels, everything. Name a game they made for the gamecube (Or any Nintendo console) with the word Mario before it, and there is probably a sequel for it. They have a sequel for Mario Tennis in the works, and although I enjoyed Mario Power Tennis, it got boring quickly after I completed the main game.

Nintendo needs to hurry up and come up with some more games, ones that aren't sequels (I am actually okay with sequels, but they need to actually be entertaining enough to last long enough for me to want to play them), and maybe ones that could appeal to older audiences more, well, at least for the 3DS. I can bet more older kids own the 3ds consoles than kids, just because I doubt parents would buy their little kids something so expensive and breakable (They'd be more likely to buy their kids wiis).

Even Pokemon, a franchise you can always count on to provide you with great games, is starting to fall apart. Just look at Pokemon Black and White 2.. The two mascots are just colored Kyurems and that's about it. The title is also the most unoriginal name I have heard, I personally would've liked Pokemon Gray better. And then as I mentioned in my previous rant, all I seem to see these days are B&W Pokemon. It's like Nintendo has abandoned all the previous generation pokemon minus pikachu, since pikachu is like the symbol of pokemon. Just look at Pokedex 3D. No not Unova pokemon to be seen anywhere.

And, the 3DS. Well, I already ranted about that over in my other topic which is in this section. But seriously, the only thing going for the 3DS is the 3D. The internet browser stinks and doesn't even have flash. It can't even load TamaTalk for me. Even StreetPass fails to work, I was at the mall today, and I saw a boy playing with his 3DS. I walked by him like three times, and did not get a streetpass tag even though it was enabled and everything.

Nintendo, please step your act up. Stop making sucky sequels, if you're going to make sequels at all, at least make them fun. Also try to work harder on making your handheld consoles more workable. And try to make an effort to keep your fans, because otherwise even hardcore Nintendo fans like me will end up converting to Sony or Microsoft fans.

Yeah, the only decent Nintendo game lately was Kirby's Epic Yarn and that seems to be for little kids :babytchi: . I wasn't aware that they were making a PokePark sequel, but my little brother has the original one and it's totally for little kids. :P I heard that they were making a 3DS Animal Crossing game, and whether that will be good I'm not sure. I agree Nintendo should stop making sucky sequels. Soon we'll see Mario Party 101.

As I would hate to say so... The only nintendo games I buy anymore is pokemon... The last few versions I've only bought 1 of the 2. In earlier versions, I have all the versions. Pokemon is getting very predictable but I still enjoy it for the time I play it.

For the wii, I've seen some games I might like but get crummy reviews... so I step back. Last game I bought was Sonic (Secret Rings).... I can barely play it. EH. Atleast Sonic is still fun to watch....... Otherwise, the games don't really make me want to buy them. The only game I would consider buying yet is Pokemon Battle..........(The first one that came out)

I agree that the sequels are getting a little crazy... that sort of seems to be a problem with the whole gaming industry, though. How about all those Call of Duty games?
(However, I don't see how rhythm heaven is all that bad. It's not meant to have a big purpose, just to be fun.)

I agree, I used to download roms to play on my DSi and honestly, none of the work. (well, the new ones. D:) Wii also got a little more boring too. Some of them rip me off... -_-

My Cut The Rope and Zelda DSi downloads are glitched because they have literally impossible levels even my mom, dad and brother couldn't complete, and one of my games always blacks out and deletes all my progress - not just on that level, but on the entire game. I don't recommend the DSi downloads.

and yet i also have the wii, and i love all the games
as well im getting a 3DS to replace my nearly dead DS Lite
and i haven't been told about anything bad from my friends who have a 3DS

If you do not understand Nintendo, check out THE ENCLOSED INSTRUCTION BOOK.

OK, I'm just kidding. But seriously, no talk about Mario? Mario Kart 7 was the 2nd worst game in the series (1st, of course, being the god-awful DS version) I honestly can't believe how the newest incarnation of the Mario Karts is absolutely littered with respawn exploit shortcuts (seriously, what is Lakitu SMOKING?) and the lazy-a** joke characters. Horray, we've got a DS-Download play character, a Mario texture swap, a FRIGGIN' STAGE HAZARD, and HONEY QUEEN? Where's Dry Bones? Why Waluigi Pinball, without Waluigi? Whatever happened to Toadette?
…And don't get me started on 3D Land.
I'm actually happy about Party 9. I'd much rather be Magikoopa than a stupid Blooper. I also thought the bosses were fun. The minigames were mostly good, my least favorites being Look Away, due to it's inaccurate controls, and that annoying 10 to Win game. Hate luck. Also, the everyone in 1 vehicle has a good strategy. Let's say you're in front of a Ztar zone, and you have a 0-1 block. Roll a zero, and you might screw the first placeman into last place.
