Nintendo are such an amazing company. In 30 years they've never done anything anti-consumer, they've never had a single bad product, and they've always been a shining light of promise and hopefulness to all gamers that evil megacorporations like Sony and Microsoft could never be. Everything they've ever done has always been in our best interests without exception.
They've provided us with so many great games over the years - focusing on the two great pillars that are Zelda and Mario. They've seen how we, the consumers, have loved them so much, that they've given us what we've wanted for almost 30 years - more of the same! This is something that evil megacorporations like Sony and Microsoft, who publish generic, derivative and creatively bland dreck like Alan Wake, Heavy Rain, Journey, Bastion and many other generic, derivative, creatively bland franchises - could never, ever hope to understand.
Another great thing is how Nintendo have innovated - first was the amazing, beloved-by-all Virtual Boy. What an amazing bit of kit. Cleverly, they also pioneered console disc drives with the N64 DD - don't listen to the evil megacorporation's propaganda, the N64 did it first! And, of course, it did it best, with classic titles like Mario Artist: Paint Studio and Doshin the Giant - which could never be matched by the generic, derivative and creatively bland dreck put out by the evil megacorporation on it's CD's - which wereobviously copied from Nintendo. And even better - Nintendo chose to make CDs an option - the evil megacorporations forced them on you, but Nintendo saved you by making most games only available on cartridges! After all, only generic, derivative, creatively bland games need disc space - Nintendo games didn't need it!
Oh, and let's not forget how Nintendo pioneered a whole new type of games console - one entirely devoted to sports and fitness titles! What genius! Only Nintendo could come up with such a brilliant idea. The evil megacorporations just want you to play their generic, derivative, creatively bland games with their generic, derivative and creatively bland third party partners - which Nintendo obviously doesn't need!
Let's not forget other Nintendo innovations - they invented region lock! Obviously, this fantastic system was there to protect us from games that Nintendo knew - through its magnificence - that we wouldn't like. Nintendo actually went one further and added it to it's handheld - protecting us from making the wrong purchases when we go abroad! Only Nintendo could have such foresight! The evil megacorporations allow anarchy - letting us buy from wherever we want even though those games weren't designed for us. It's disgusting - how could they allow us the freedom to do such a thing? Goddamn evil megacorporations...
Nintendo is also by far the best at online features - not only did the GameCube pioneer with Phantasy Star Online, the Wii added a whole new dimension with Friend Codes. While the evil megacorporations force their users to choose a username, Nintendo give you one for free! I love mine - I love having 7654982313909763 as my online handle! And what's more, you get a new one for every game! The evil megacorporations only let you have one username - Nintendo let us have as many as we want! Nintendo, in their wisdom, have also seen fit to protect us all online from obscene images that our fellow users might share. This is one of Nintendo's greatest triumphs - Nintendo can tell us what we can and can't see on the Wii U! The evil megacorporations allow total anarchy - Nintendo are acting in our best interests to stop that.
I hope I've educated you all as to why Nintendo are the best and you should all sell your evil megacorporation consoles and buy from Nintendo instead!
