You know, I've heard hate come from a lot of areas against everything Nintendo since the N64. At this point, every time I hear somebody kind of try and throw Nintendo under the bus, especially the Wii though, I remind them (if they're an actual gamer or somebody I know) about the many flaws that ALL 3 consoles have this generation in every area especially when compared to PC gaming.
The thing is, I don't mind hate, as long as it's not biased, one sided, or misinformed. Ya there's things you can legitimately hate on about Nintendo but then there's also a lot of those same problems are shared across all 3 systems.
Saying stuff like Nintendo uses the same franchises over and over is negated by the fact most of those franchises (excluding the many Mario games/spin offs) see maybe 1 or 2 entrees if any at all per system AND the competition sometimes see's yearly releases that are only milked further by DLC that should be included in the box.
Having the complaints about graphics on Nintendo systems is only negated by the fact that a superior PC blows EVERYTHING out the water and if you truly want hardware demanding games, that's what you'd be playing.
The argument about the online capabilities are negated by massive hack attacks on PSN and Microsoft not letting you take out your card info without calling them (and when you do cancelling your gold membership), charging you automatically for stuff (like subscription renewal), and not letting you refund games that were bought on your console accidentally because some genius thought it was a good idea to have some items require points and some just charge directly to your card (this is bad if you have kids, family, or stupid friends around.... or if you drop the controller).
Trust me when I say this, each system has many issues this gen where I can go on a long rant about. Trying to put 1 in front of the other is stupid and really, tbh, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the problems. At this point, people who want to throw Nintendo under the bus and make it out to sound like Nintendo stuff is bad or is the only one that has problems, it's just eye roll and facepalm worthy and the best thing to do for them is walk away as they're not a real gamer and their ignorance isn't worth your time.
