  2. If they do the zelda games correctly I might be willing to purchase a Wii u. I'm a huge nintendo fan for a long time but there lack of titles on the wii u and gimmicky controls doesn't make me jump up and down to go buy one.
     
  3. Although recent Mario and especially Zelda games haven't dissapointed so far, Nintendo needs new intellectual property badly imo.

    Wii U needs games badly! But making another Super mario Bros, or remaking an old game is NOT enough, c'mon what happened to the N64 days, we need gamesssssss!

    I've been saying this since the Gamecube, Nintendo need a new franchise!

    Also agreed with St1ckM4n, a Pokemon MMO would be the biggest hit this decade!

    used to play it on nes, then super nes.
    but my real loves are pacman and battle city.
    I have them in my emulator.
