Can't remember when N made a sports game I gave deuce for. Waverace 64 I guess. As far as cross platform titles, i.e., EASports the N version is almost always the worst of the bunch, since the SNES days. The Genesis had all the good sports games. The N64 was a horrible sports machine, as was the GCube. I don't like playing football, basketball, baseball...hell, tennis with plumbers, ghost, princesses, or elves.

In short, I disagree with you. But props for getting me to type up a comment, mission accomplished!

What a stupid article.

There is some good fun to be had with basic sports games on the Wii but beyond that you can't compare the gimmicky flash type games to any real next-gen sports game.

We could go into the whole argument where gameplay rules over graphics but no one would ever choose Wii graphics over lifelike stuff like NBA 2K is producing etc.

But that argument aside, Nintendo haven't got it in them to create a decent sport sim.

Their tennis games are arcadey and lack any depth and going back to Kobe's Courtside, that game was a joke.

I could go on, but the article is flawed and laughable in too many ways to bother.

I think Nintendo really is... Nintendo. They really dont need sports games to sell but real sports gamers dont need Nintendo.

I think the point of the article was that, as a developer rather than a console manufacturer, Nintendo's record for quality control absolutely shames that of certain other devs *cough* 2k *cough*.

The GC wasn't a generation behind the PS2. Next time around, if Nintendo is competing on anything close to a level playing field w/ Sony and M$, it would be nice to see Ninty make a serious effort at a non-cartoon sports title.

I would agree, but there are a lot of "if"s in that short paragraph. It's too soon to bother thinking about, IMO.

Re: Why Sports Gamers Need Nintendo

Nintendo sucks all around now... I would get a wii but the only games i would get for it would be mario(classic) and that tennis game That looks like it would take some energy. but overall the nintendo sucks gamers don't need it.

Maybe children need it but they don't know better they just want something colorful, fun, and easy to play. Anyone at least 14 and up would agree that the wii blows.

If mario was on the xbox or ps3 there would be hardly no one playing the wii that would know a good game when they seen one.

I actually really want a nintendo DS. I hope it stays relevant for another couple of years because I'm picking one up soon.

Re: Why Sports Gamers Need Nintendo

Put it this way, I haven't bought a Sports game for a Nintendo system since SNES. Except for Wrestling, but that is something of its own.

When I think of Nintendo, I do not think of sports. Me saying that is not disrespecting the history of Nintendo, it is just saying that they aren't up to date when it comes to producing sports games. They know they can't compete so they go down the fun route.

Again, any real sports game isn't thinking about buying sports games for a Nintendo system
Concrete evidence/videos please
