Hey, Happy Black Friday to all of you 6 a.m. clearance shoppers! Ah, yes. I too was out today doing some early Christmas shopping. I would like to share with you an experience I had in the Target store, which kind of emphasized the values of Nintendo Games. I went to the electronics section (where else?!), and went to the GBA's. They had a SP for you to demo on. The game was Metroid Fusion. Nothing much, but something to keep me occupied. I was playing the game, when I noticed an older woman (I'd put her about 60-70) looking at some clearance-priced Gamecube games next to me. She then turned to me, and asked me my opinion on a Scooby Doo game. I said that I had never played it before, but I examined it, and said it looked like a game that would keep the kids playing. She went on to say that she had some grandkids that came to her house every so often, and played Gamecube there. After she said this, I recommended Super Mario Sunshine, if she didn't already have it. She said that she had it, and it was "cute." She said that when she bought it, she expected something stupid, but it turned out to be something that she really thought was neat. Then, she thanked me for my help and left. The point that I realized to be true was this: Nintendo is a family corporation. You may have heard advertisements saying "Oh, Gamecube's games are rated for no one over 12." Not true. Just because they are rated Everyone does not mean this. Besides from getting a lot of the games that XBOX and PS2 have, it also devotes a majority of its time to family-oriented gaming. Stuff that's good for kinds of any age (hence "Everyone"). Please consider this when buying your next video game console for the holiday season.
