Their fanbase is loyal because of one reason: they've made the best and most memorable video games of all time.
Shouldn’t that be what it’s all about? I do what makes me happy. Nintendo games are just fun. I play games to have fun and I think people have forgotten that. Graphics and storage and all of that are important to a certain extent but in the end Nintendo makes games that I find fun and they make me happy. I think ‘having fun’ is lost on some people these days. (I think you and I are in agreement here, I used your quote as a jumping of point)
Sounds like for some of you, Nintendo isn’t making you happy (some of you let us know over and over again in this thread and across CAG). Maybe venting about it makes you feel better but ultimately rather than bickering with people on the internet you should quit buying their stuff. If you’ve already taken that step, then I wonder why you’re here even? No one is forcing you to buy their stuff and I’m certainly not forcing anyone to like Nintendo. All I’m saying is that if they’re making you so miserable I’d advise finding something that makes you happy, because many of you here are [repeatedly] presenting as unhappy.
