@joshwent: This shows you didn't read my post correctly. Mario games are kiddie games in that they have the aesthetic but Mario games can be really hard. I'm not saying that older people can't enjoy them. However, I fear that in the future Nintendo will forget about the older crowd and make them easier in later Mario titles, so that they are SOLELY for kids. And who said anything about these games needing to be violent? I'm not saying the Wii U is for kids. I'm saying that the Wii U isn't really for anyone! And that since Nintendo tried to rope in the hardcore audience with the Wii U and failed, their next console will be focused on kids and casual audiences. Read the post correctly, please.

@darthorange: They haven't reviewed well, nor is anyone talking about it or buying these games. They aren't selling. Also, even if I did have the system, I would play all of those games because I'm not a millionaire.
Lego City Undercover is an open world Lego game, like Lego Batman 2 and the recently released Lego Marvel Super Heroes, except those two games have characters you already know. I'm not saying Lego City Undercover is bad, just not distinct.
Did I ever say anyone who likes a Wii U isn't a hardcore gamer? In fact, I stated being a hardcore gamer as a reason for wanting a Wii U. The opposite of what you're saying.
A kiddie design would be like what the 2DS looks like. I'm not saying whether or not it's comfortable. In other words, it won't look like the sleek black box the Wii U is now. It'll look like the Gamecube or SNES did. With purple marks and not looking like other appliances, like other consoles and cable boxes, blu-ray players, etc. Which isn't a bad thing per se. It'll definitely be distinct.
As for failure, yes. I'm talking about financially. That's what I mean and it is a big deal to Nintendo. They need to make money and they won't waste their time with a product that isn't. They're not going to continue to support a console just because you like it. I love the Saturn; I'm always finding out about cool games I haven't played for it, but I totally get why it failed.
I'm really enjoying it! I also wanted to play it back when it came out but never did. I've sunk around 6-7 hours into it and I really like it. It lacks polish but the gameplay is really fun.
- Sonic games are actually decent now ever since Sonic Colors.
- The first Infamous isn't very good.
- Sly Cooper is better than Jak and Daxter and Ratchet & Clank and Sly 2 is one of the best games on the PS2 (possible PS3).
- The Devil May Cry series is terrible and DMC fans should thank Ninja Theory for making the only game worth playing in the franchise.
- The Sega Saturn was better than the Nintendo 64.
I don't hate Origin but Steam is more reliable and has better sales. That's not to say Steam is perfect. I can't play GTA Vice City or Metro 2033 because of some strange glitch, for example but that is very much the exception. That's two games out of 179 so not bad. There's not anything particularly wrong with Origin, though I've heard of some severe issues with it that prevent stuff like co-op in some games. I prefer Steam not because Origin is terrible but because Steam is better.
Okay. Rayman Legends, and Earthbound are pretty much guaranteed going by this list. Guys, I'm not interested in ZombiU. Don't like horror games. Also, I've played almost all of Platinum Games' stuff and I've only liked Metal Gear Rising Revengeance. Didn't like Bayonetta or Anarchy Reigns or Madworld.
