Sorry if this has been discussed before but this thought has been nagging at me for a while. I just don't understand the Nintendo fanboy hypocrisy that happens with the users and writers of gaming sites and podcasts. Every time I listen to a gaming podcast (which I should probably cut back on) I hear the same thing over and over again about how games like God of War or Gears of War should quit shoveling out sequels because they're becoming too derivative and uninspired. But time and time again, and it never fails, these same guys talk about how they're excited for a new Mario Bros, Metroid, Zelda, etc… which will push them to run out and buy the next console Nintendo releases. I just don't get it? There was also a lot of wariness for The Last of Us, Watch Dogs, Beyond, and others during E3 about them receiving maybe too much hype for what was being shown and some elements being less appealing then others. All of which is fair and I agree with, to a certain extent, but then they move on to the Nintendo conference and all I heard was a plethora of nostalgia. At least some of the companies at E3 were working with new material, derivative or not, instead of established franchises of 25-30 years. Am I way off base here? I get that they're great games, but it just seems that no one ever calls Nintendo on their shit for putting out games for the same three franchises every year. Or at the very least see the hypocrisy when they mention Gears of War or Uncharted.
Anyways, that felt good to get out. Go easy on me! Im fragile.
