Losers don't play COD. The only game my friends play is COD. If COD so bad then why does it get so much money? Does your mommy not like you playing M games?


What the blog section comments are turning into IGN now?

Quoth Mr.Gangsta:Nintendos only good games are mario affiliated. Nintendo sucks. I have a wii, but i might as well use it as a paperweight, cuz after i beat super mario its done for me. O i guess i use it for netfilx, but i could use my xbox for that too.

Never mind Metroid, which may be one of the darker games I've played. You gotta admit, Metroid Prime is REALLY dark. e3e

Kirby, the Platforming alternative to Mario.

Pokémon, which I believe is the #2 cash cow for Nintendo, after Mario. Not to mention, it makes use of most of Ninty's online service.

Super Smash Brothers, one of the few successful inter-franchise brawlers.

And to top it off, had Nintendo not brought the Famicom and marketed as the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Video Game Crash of 1983-1984, caused by the pigs at Atari, there would be no quality games from anyone here in the Western Hemisphere.

Tell me again that Nintendo sucks.

Quoth Skittles:
If I remember correctly, someone from Brownie Brown (a development company that helped to create Mother 3) said that they'd be willing to do a Mother/Earthbound series compilation on the DS (or 3DS now).


The DS is the best Handheld for JRPGs, really. It has that nice 16/32-BIT feel to t. :p

Right. Because shooters are supreme and the Wii has no good games. /sarcasm
I own to of the major systems and have friends with the 360s, so I do know for a fact that the Wii actually has quite a few good games, many of which are better than what is offered on other systems despite possessing weaker hardware.

That, and several Wii games. More than half of the best selling games ever (not including pack-in games like Wii Sports and SMB ) like Mario Kart Wii, WS Resort, Wii Play, etc.

So Speaketh Skittkes;

In fact, there have been games so massively more successful, yet they are nothing like CoD games.

Really? Wait, you mean that "Genre-Defining" Blog Series? Rather, the one featuring tLoZ and the original SMMB, yes? :p


Yep. :3

No one said anything about CoD only being played by losers, actually. However, Call of Duty has been almost the exact same game throughout the entire series, having played them all. The biggest change was in CoD 4, and yet afterward, they went right back copy/pasting each game again. And considering I'm 18, my parents don't really have a say in the games I play.
As for why it's popular, that's easy. It appeals to what teenage and young adult boys (dudebro gamers, really) enjoy playing. In fact, there have been games so massively more successful, yet they are nothing like CoD games.

Actually, she's tried buying me several for GameCube. It's rather funny, really.

Because CoD releases map packs as "new games" and dry-rape the market. It's because anyone can hit RT/1 and shoot something. It's because of the bias that is today's gaming industry. That's how.

I have 1 good shooter with an actual plot. I don't need to buy a bunch of the same thing. I'm not thirsting for gore like most of the 12y/o "gamers".

You just reminded me, I have a review of a particular RPG (well, not exactly a review, but a continuation my my blog series) that I've been meaning to complete.

True...

Well, Action/RPGs seem to be doing well. I personally will only call a JRPG an RPG. Y'know, 16-BIT-ish, turn-based battling, Parties, etc.

Quoth Skittles:Hah, MW3. Another copy/pasta'd game.

<br>
<br>^Ha.
<br>
<br>Mr. Gangsta, you can only play those games because really, I'm sure actual games with gameplay ahead of graphics might scar you. :p
<br>
<br>So 1/3rd of Operation Rainfall was a success, I see. <img src="/chatrooms/smilies/redneck.gif" alt="">
<br>
<br>And this was more so <span style="text-decoration:line-through">Reggie</span>Nintendo of America's fault, as they didn't feel the Localization costs would be justified. T-T

It's hard to say really. I do know that Nintendo of Japan controls whether or not another region will be allowed to localize a game. Since they allowed Europe to localize it, it's possible they used it as a testing region to see how it would perform outside of Japan, out of which RPGs tend to perform significantly less well than in Japan (Dragon Quest and Monster Hunter are insane there). I do think that OP Rainfall definitely helped, but it almost certainly wasn't the sole cause of Xenoblade's localization.
