F-Zero, Earthbound, Kirby Super Star, Star Fox, Super Punch-Out, Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and many more. Those are the heavy-hitters and must-play games on the SNES.

Nintendo cater to every gamer
Nintendo main mission is to bring family together and what a great time. Not like console Xbox, PC and PlayStation which are dedicated to hardcore game. Nintendo’s main genre are adventure, casual, puzzles and party games, while PlayStation, Xbox and PC are shooter, MMOs and sports games. Nintendo games are light-hearted tone and gear towards younger audience and family. That’s why Nintendo try to stray away from violence games (in the 90s they had a censorship on SNES console). Nintendo does have a shooter called Splatoon which is non-violence and I would say it’s up there with Call of Duty, Overwatch, Battlefield 1 and other shooters. I think Nintendo might consider developing gearing their games to hardcore gamer but Xbox and PlayStation are champion of that. Due to Nintendo content guidelines games couldn’t have nudity, sexuality (Bayonetta 2), profanity (Conker’s Bad Fur Day), blood, (No More Heroes), drugs, and religious symbols. Speaking of Bayonetta 2, No More Heroes and Conker’s Bad Fur Day, these fit the category but Nintendo chose to abolish most of these policies in favor of consumers making their own choices about the content of the games they played which is a great move for thinking of the players. As For Xbox, PC and PlayStation no policy nor guideline doesn’t exist because there are thinking about consumer and what game they choose to play just like Nintendo.

Reggie’s thoughts on transition from Wii-U to Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime sat down in a interview with GameSpot and express his deepest thoughts on Nintendo Wii-U sales and it’s performance throughout last year. Reggie believes Nintendo don’t effectively communicate the novelty of the system stating “The “clarity of the consumer proposition” was not strong enough and might be more important–that there wasn’t a steady flow of compelling games”. Meaning Nintendo don’t have games like Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has. That’s when Nintendo Switch comes in now there are third-party companies like Square Enix, Sega, Bethesda, EA and more. So Nintendo is trying to climb up with Microsoft and Sony in terms of games. Which Reggie thinks Nintendo has done a better job communicating what exactly the Switch is and there won’t be a lack of strong games.

Get your Amiibos while there are on sale
Introduced in 2014, Nintendo has a new way to interact in-game with toys. An Aiimbo is a figure that gives you functionality in-game such as Mario Kart 8 (unlock costumes), Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (activate Kirby Star Dash’s ability) and Mario Party 10 (which there is a mode called Amiibo Party). People compared this to Skylanders and Disney Infinity then again Activision has offered Nintendo a deal but declined. Which use the same RFID (stands for Radio-frequency identification) for interacting with the game and store data in the figurines. Aiimbo are not compatible with all Nintendo I think it’s still in progress. Each figurine is specific to just one game now all, for example you are playing Mario Kart 8 and you have storage data. If you switch to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U that data will be deleted. Maybe in a future update you might use Amiibos in multiple games.
