I remember a time when Nintendo made groundbreaking games. I don't mean visually, although their games looked impressive in their day, no, I mean Nintendo use to put out the biggest games. Most major mario, zelda, pokemon and metroid games were breathtaking in terms of scope.
Now it feels like they only build big games on old blueprints. Reusing templates from the past to make expensive games or focusing on small concepts to build new franchises. It's not from a lack of money though. The company is sitting on disgusting amounts of cash and don't seem to spend it on anything except R&D for their hardware.
I miss the Nintendo who took a chance on the legend of zelda, mario 64, metroid prime and I guess what I'm saying is: put out a great console pokemon game already, you fuckers.
