Haha! You spent so much time putting this bullshit together. xD

Thanks though. It was a good read, had a real laugh.

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it! It only took a few minutes, but it was well worth it lol.

Actually no, but I was pleasantly surprised :P.

So then tell me why I bought and played Ratchet and Clank, Tearaway and LBP on my PS4 and Super Luckys Tale and Recore on my Xbone

Sony and Microsoft do not rely on this to sell their consoles and games. Nintendo, on the other hand, has adopted this corrupted consumerism into its very roots.

@XVision84: in other words, water is wet and Nintendo has good marketing to sell their hardware and software. Congratulations, you played yourself

I think it's too late for you, my man. The switch sig, the switch avi, your mind's already owned by Nintendo. I'll pray for you :(.

Well, this would make sense if you were only watching it. Gameplay helps, as most Nintendo gameplay is decent at the very least. Your theory of bright and colorful is already quite established, case in point, Avatar; it's a mediocre movie with generic calls on villains and heroes. The heroes, or characters you are supposed to sympathize with, have big, bright eyes and colorful skin, and the villains have beady eyes along with scars and a general crass and callous attitude.

People, however, fell in love with the movie and hailed it as a great simply because their brains told them so. The bright colors and hopeful ensemble of winning tells them that they feel good inside, thus why people were obsessed with a presence absent world built on generic standards of beauty. The story is average, at best, and all of the characters are 1 dimensional; the film is hardly a great in any sense of the word. But, people like shiny things that make them feel good.

It's just human nature.

I don't think it really translates completely to video games, unless perhaps you are catering to young kids or simpletons. The gameplay part of it requires a bit more analysis to just say that people are mesmerized by the pretty things.

or maybe older style games are just more fun.

Take the BIG following World of Warcraft: Classic is getting.... because it goes back to a time where being an MMO actually mattered, not the phone/console style game design that encourages instant matchmaking, instant rewards and no social activity.

Modern gaming's design concepts are starting to show massive cracks..... each new cinematic TPS singleplayer game is the same as the last. First Person Shooters have been run into the ground.... every game is anti-social, instant gratification bullshit that treats you like a god.... and milks your wallet.

Nintendo made simpler games for simpler times? maybe ...that does not make the product worse.... and the whole "nostaligia is the only reason old game types are played" is utter bullshit.

So movie games with gripping stories and little gameplay don't trick you into having fun by focusing on story? Action games with little substance don't trick you into being more excited during planned portions that make you feel badass with explosions and weak enemies?
