I've had video games since I was a little kid, in fact the first system I owned was an NES. The second, SNES. And the third and fourth were Playstation and N64 respectively. I love Nintendo, but I feel like ever since the Wii, Nintendo has frustrated me with gimmicky gameplay and poor graphics to boot. And this year's Nintendo press conference at E3 only apmlified these feelings for me. I wanted to be impressed with the Wii U, but instead, I was disgusted by it.
It might be weird to post a link to another video game site, but I found an article on IGN that articulately explains why Ninetndo failed at E3. You can check it out here:
Nintendo needs to step it up.
