15Always The Same Plots
Linking to the ‘kiddy’ games point, another undeniable feature of Nintendo games is that they pretty always have the same plot.
For the most part, Nintendo fan’s don’t care. Yes, Bowser has kidnapped the Princess for the umpteenth time, but it’s the gameplay and level design we’re playing Mario for, not
the logistics of the story. Saying that though, with the likes of The Last of Us bringing Hollywood-quality writing, voice acting, and direction, it’s becoming harder and harder for Nintendo fans to justify Nintendo's unambitious plots.
