DISCLAIMER: This is not a Nintendo hate thread. They make excellent games, it's just an observation I thought worth discussing.
Think of the latest strides in the industry.
Red dead 2 has pushed the bar in terms of how reactive or lively open world games can be.
The witcher 3 raised the bar in terms of writing/story/quest quality despite the massive world.
Fortnite/Overwatch/PUBG introduced big changes in the online multiplayer landscape.
Uncharted 1/2 set the bar for cinematic action adventure experiences.
Batman arkham paved the way for future superhero games.
League/Dota helped make esports mainstream and brought back MOBAs.
We've come a very long way in terms of game mechanics, but I haven't seen any of this from Nintendo's camp. They make very good, polished games, but those games don't seem to make any lasting industry changes.
Do you agree or disagree?
