Admitting when you're wrong: Nintendo

I've been a Nintendo fanboy since my NES. I always took the SNES' side in the Genesis/SNES bit. and I had only the N64 for years. I then realized how great the PlayStation was considering Nintendo dropped the ball on RPGs and Fighting games. Quest64 and Fighters' Destiny? No thanks...

I still bought the GameCube at launch and the Wii a couple months after release. Both proved to be quality systems that held up and had games that I liked.

But the influx of SHIT from Ubisoft and now Mega Man 9? I'm ready to admit that Nintendo isn't quite for me anymore. I still will support their big titles (I only don't have Metroid Prime 3 for Wii as far as big names go) but it seems that games like Game Party and other minishits collections have more IMPORTANCE than something like Animal Crossing Wii which Ive been waiting for for years.

Don't get me wrong. I have NO problem with these titles selling and making Nintendo money. This is a business after all. I'm just disappointed and hurt that my Jappy game fix is coming from the Xbox 360. Considering how I was against the original Xbox and still think it a disappointment itself.

Ubisoft admits to creating trash to sell on the Wii and Capcom's "Mega Man 9" is a slap in the face to people who, like me, have beenw aiting for Mega Man 9 to make a big splash in today's gaming market. But I mean LOOK at it. They're making it look a certain way just to do so. I'd rather they spend the time and money to update it to AT LEAST Mega Man ZX standards as opposed to having this silly gimmick of making it look like Mega Man V. The only thing I'm looking forward to from Capcom is Biohazard 5, because Street Fighter IV can suck my fucking balls. I'll make a separate entry for that in the future maybe.

I support Nintendo as a company, but I'm really quite hurt at how lazy their developing schedule is. I want a good Mega Man 9 from them and Capcom, not this shit. I want Animal Crossing. I wouldn't mind a new Pikmin. And I'd like a Mario that was less mission-based, and more about getting from point A to point B.

Any other kids of the 80's/90's in the same boat as me?
