“Word of advice. Expand your horizons, take your eyes away from the pinhole view, and perhaps even consider the value of enjoying and respecting all sides rather than choosing one before you decide to take part in such a conversation.”Ironic statement of the day.

OP-ED: Calling Gamers “Insatiable” Ignores Why Nintendo’s E3 Disappointed Them

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime feels gamers can’t be satisfied. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime thinks gamers are insatiable. He said as much in an interview conducted as this year’s E3 came to a close that has only just begun to make the rounds this week. He may have a point, and at times gamers undoubtedly are impossible to please. That being said, this can’t be a blanket excuse used any time gamers ask for more. There are times when their appetite is justified, and Nintendo’s E3 showing was arguably one of them. “One of the things that, on one hand, I love and, on the other hand, that troubles me tremendously about not only our fanbase but about the gaming community at large is that, whenever you share information, the perspective is, ‘Thank you, but I want more.’ ‘Thank you, but give me more.’ I mean, it is insatiable,” he told Kotaku. “And so for years this community has been asking, ‘Where’s Pikmin?’ ‘Where’s Pikmin?’ ‘Where’s Pikmin?’ We give them Pikmin. And then they say, ‘What else?’ For years, this community have said, ‘Damnit Reggie, when you launch, you better launch with a Mario game.’ So we launch with a Mario game, and they say, ‘So what’s more?'” He also went on to list Nintendo Land as something that received a “ho-hum” reaction this year despite some fans asking for Nintendo to leverage all of its franchises outside of Super Smash Bros. While he may have been speaking in general, his examples make it clear that at least some within Nintendo are interpreting the reaction to its showing at E3 2012 as being due to the belief that gamers can never be fully satisfied. There is some truth in that, but there is a major distinction to be made between gamers who get some of what they want and are left wanting more, and those who were genuinely underwhelmed. Yes, showing a long-awaited Pikmin sequel and a Mario game (coming at the Wii U’s launch) is nice, yet ticking those boxes and expecting gamers to be pleased is the wrong way to approach the planning of a press conference. Pikmin 3 is something we already knew about, which takes some of the edge off the excitement of it being shown (particularly when that showing makes it clear the game doesn’t rely on the Wii U’s key feature, the GamePad). New Super Mario Bros. U seems like a very iterative sequel lacking the originality many would like to see, albeit one that is in high definition and features GamePad touchscreen functionality. Nintendo fans might not be perceived...
