Nintendo has made me feel silly and upset at the same time....

For several years I've stopped buying games on release date, unless it's a game I really want to support, because, why should I pay 60€ for a game that will eventually be 30€ or ever 20€?

I also noticed my consumption of Nintendo game has plummeted...  And it just hit me... Nintendo no longer does the "Player's Choice" edition of games! Ever since the SNES era, if a game sold enough it was re-released at a reduced price, like the Platinum edition Sony has or the Classics Microsoft has, but there hasn't been a Wii "Player's Choice" yet!

But why? The Wii is selling better than the GameCube and so are the games!  Shouldn't at least the games released at the launch date be cheaper now? We know they sold enough to be a "Player's Choice"! It's SOOOO upsetting to see that Nintendo is the ONLY company that refuses to reduce it's prices, as far as I know nothing made in the Wii /  DS made by Nintendo has dropped price.

I feel so silly that I never bought New Super Mario Bros. Wii because I expected it to drop price, but I also feel very upset that I'm FORCED to pay 50€ for the game, I'm serious, I can't get it cheaper not even used! That's insane! I feel like Nintendo is bullying me! I can't get my traditional platforming fix on other consoles and I love platformers!

The Nintendo fanboy in me is so sad, specially since I just realized the best Zelda experience I had... was on PS3 with 3D Dot Game Heroes...
I think I should be called a Sega fan now... I keep telling people that they are pussies for hating the newer Sonic game because they might not be great, but they are not as bad as everybody else says they are.... I played Sega Superstars Tennis to death and.... I haven't even bothered with Mario Tennis... I'm going to buy Sega Superstars Racing, but I won't buy Mario Kart Wii... I won't play Pokémon anymore because it's the same game as the first one, I'd rather play Phantasy Star or Skies of Arcadia and Valkyria Chronicles is a million times better than all of the strategy games Nintendo has combined...

Mario Galaxy 2 comes out this week in Europe... Everybody says it's so awesome they either cry with joy or orgasm every 5 seconds... And it's my last hope for the Nintendo fanboy in me...

PS: Don't even get me started on Zelda: Spirit Tracks... It has NO real overworld! How can it be a Zelda game without one? It's like taking the jumping out of Mario! D:<
