Nintendo: We Can't Satisfy You And You Enjoy It

Nintendo can't win, can it? Put out games to expand their audience, and the core gamers are upset. Put out core games, and core gamers want more.

According to Nintendo's Denise Kaigler, the moment that core gamers are satisfied, players will become disinterested in the company. So Nintendo cannot satisfy gamers, and gamers should enjoy not getting what they want. It's a "fun" relationship.

"I will give you that hardcore gamers have an insatiable appetite for everything Nintendo," she said. "And we love that! We love that. When we get to a point where core gamers say, 'OK, Nintendo, enough! We don't need any more games from you guys...' None of us wants to be put in that position, right?

"We don't want your appetite to ever be satisfied, because when we satisfy you, it's time for us to go [dusts off hands] , 'OK! Let's go on home now!' And none of us wants to go home. So there's this sort of fun... relationship, I think, that's happening between Nintendo and the hardcore gamer — which we enjoy and hope that the core gamer enjoys it."

Bring on the sadomasochistic carrot dangling! And the Rosie O'Donnell in dominatrix gear pic!!

    FUCK YOU NINTENDO! Christ big business pisses me off, I mean fair enough they need to turn a profit but do they honestly think people appreciated shit like Wii Music? Make another Zelda game goddammit and NOT ON THE FUCKING DS. How about another Metroid or fuck why not another Star Fox game where you STAY IN A GODDAMN ARWING! Rants and raves aside, I've lost alot of faith in Nintendo.

    Wow, it's like a capitalist manifesto. The more you get, the more you want?

    If Nintendo can get their heads around multiplayer for core gamers, perhaps they'll start understanding the concept of longevity.
