I remember all the mourning that occurred when Sega pulled out of the hardware business, and a lot of the outpouring of love was based on the innovative Dreamcast and the great games that had been made for years up to that point, even when CEOs were making wrong decisions. Sega had experienced hubris, but it was on the executive level. It didn't feel like the entire company.
If Nintendo were to pull out of the hardware business tomorrow, I don't think we'd see the same amount of mourning, despite how influential the company has been. I think a lot of people would just sigh and say, "Way to go, idiots."
I'm sick of all the games in recent years that want to make me "feel" something. Just shut up. I'm 33 years old, I've been been playing video games my whole life and am certainly a million miles from being a "bro gamer". I'm looking for interesting game mechanics as much as the next gamer.
I swear it's crap like this that makes people crave a game that just gives them a gun and something to shoot at.
Admitting that you're 33 years old just makes your comment seem way, way, way more pathetic, duder!
