Another problem is the difference in philosophy. Most publishers see the industry as on par with movies or TV, whereas Nintendo sees video games as...games. They're more interested in how to make games more fun than breathtaking cutscenes or celebrity voice actors.
I disagree. I feel like most developers are trying to push gaming forward with their games by making games that weren't possible before like Assassins Creed or Little Big Planet and by making completely new games like Minecraft or Tearaway. Nintendo on the other hand continues to make games like it's the 90s, following the same formulas they always have. It’s been 20 years since Super Mario World yet their 2D Mario games still have a timer. Why? Why can't I save anywhere in Zelda a Link Between worlds?
Nintendo needs to start updating their games for the modern era like other companies have done in order to reach a wider audience. Capcom has been around almost as long as Nintendo but their games like Street Fighter 4 or RE 5/6 don't feel like games made in the PS1/SNES era. I still don't understand how Nintendo has made 3 different 4 player Mario games yet none of them have online play.
