I wish he was wrong. Nintendo has broken my heart. Can we blame it on them or was it just time for the throne to be passed? It can be a number of factors. I just wanted to express how magical the Nintendo brand use to feel. You couldn’t call yourself a gamer if you didn’t have a Nintendo, in my generation at least (I’m 26). That quote got me thinking a bit about the Mario legacy, and how it’s irrelevant to children today. Is it time for Nintendo to swallow the humble pill and put Super Mario on the iPhone? Never going to happen, lol.
