"Nintendoism is a terrible thing, a state of mind that is so glorious as to be dangerously addictive.
What is the world coming to, when large corporations can sell drugs to children like this?" - Some review off BBC website.

Nintendo

Nintendo
Light of my screen, love of my thumbs
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

Mario, in thine majestic cap and royal blue coveralls
With boots of robust jumping power and murderous stomping.
Driven by materialism, the desire to find one hundred coins
With which to exchange for a mushroom
Presumably laced with drugs.

Link, holder of the Triforce of courage, and purveyor of Hyrulian justice
Friend of a fairy whose annoying insistence nearly drove me to murder.
How I wish I had your sword and shield, so I may defend myself from harm.
How I wish I had your Ocarina, with its magical songs of teleportation
So I may fly to a place
Without that goddamn fairy.

Donkey Kong, stealer of princesses, thrower of barrels
Eater of my quarters at the arcade.
You have truly shown that my jumps are no match for your rolling cylinders of wood
And I respect your ability to destroy things for no reason.
But, hilarious translation error or not, you are not a donkey
So change your name already.

Samus Aran, famed figher of Metroids, antithesis to the Space Pirates
Your spacefaring adventures, and your power suit -
With its jetpacks, energy shields, and chargeable plasma blaster -
Made us all wish we could be you
Until we found out you were a girl.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
But it's still kind of weird.

Pikachu, the product of an unholy union between a rat and an electric eel.
You have the cognitive abilities of a ball of rice
Yet you are still smarter than your master.
Your games have invaded my mind
Drained my batteries
Emptied my pockets
And robbed me of my childhood.
I hate you.

Nintendo
Considering my history with your franchises
I feel that I can, without hyperbole, truly fear the day I find a Wii
And its magical remote, a lightgun to the power of forty-two.

Everything you touch becomes my vice
Your children of software and hardware are my angels of entertainment.
And I must admit, it is all so addictive and enjoyable
Like a binary cocaine.

But it is not debilitating.
I swear I can stop any time I choose.
I just choose not to.

Poem credits to some random guy. This thread is intended to keep The Pit free of useless threads, and keep most Nintendo related stuff here, as in fashion of the previous 2 Nintendoism threads.

Nintendo reached its peak with SNES. IMO.

I may have to agree with you there. Although N64 was a fantastic console, and I think DS is great.

Yeah. Although I prefer the 360 over the Wii by far, it's still a great system. It was loads of fun when I tried it the first time (I was baked off my ass btw), but I know that for me it just wouldn't last. The whole wiimote thing seems like a fad that will get boring soon enough.

I grew up on Nintendo though. NES was like...The perfect gift when I was a wee (:P) lad. Super Mario was a ground breaking revolution that I'll never forget.

Super Mario Bros. 3

Awsome game, but not as good as Super Mario World.
#13
Super mario world is the best ****ing game in the whole world. I know every secret in that game, It was the first game I got for my SNES when I was like 2. Ive had it for 13 years and it's still my favorite game.

I want a Wii but only for Zelda. So it's not worth it.


Yes it is.

I have a Wii. I have Zelda. Worth it.

I NEED MORE WII GAMES! Where are all the (decent) FPS's? Far Cry and Red Steel are apparently shit and I don't want Call of Duty 3 because WWII shooters are shit. I already know how it ends.

Hurry up Mario Galaxy and MP3!

Hehe MP3! I meant Metroid Prime.

Also, what Virtual Console games would you guys recommend?

And has anyone else had difficulty getting hold of extra controllers?

No, I'm not baked right now. I responded to one of your posts on Friday (read: very early saturday) while totally wasted though. I forget where. Something involving the death penalty although I can't remember which of the many threads on that topic it was.

I have FF3. It is a very good game. .

And to whoever agreed with me on Super Mario World, that game is the sole reason I prefer Mario games over Zelda. I got it for my 4th Birthday, and was a pro by the time I was 5.

Meths, I completed Zelda within 8 days of getting it on launch day. And then I didn;t play my Wii for a while. But just after Xmas, I bought Red Steel, and its a pretty good game. Try renting it.

Wow, this thread might actually persuade me to come back to UG every so often. Seeing as the first Nintendoism was so awesome and I was never out of the thread.

A message for ignorant noobs or XBox/Sony fanboys:

Get the fuck out.

I was calling you a philistine because you didn't appreciate Goldeneye. But whatever.

So favourite console anyone? Mine would have to be The N64...

Either SNES or N64, but I'm leaning towards SNES. DS is a great console though.


^Goldeneye multiplayer was better any day.
#39
Chrono Trigger was the owndizzliest game ever. They stopped the 3d remake
I wanted to play Chrono Cross but I live in the UK.

And Zelda AlttP. Classics.
And for N64, Goldeneye, perfect dark, Zelda OoT, Super smash bros.

I got a Nintendo DS and Starfox Command for Christmas.

My favorite is the N64 it was my first console. Miss those days so much.
