I buy Nintendo for the games. I play the crap out of them, they're commonly pure polished perfection that have value for years.
There's many like me who care more about a new Mario/Zelda/Xenoblade/DK and don't even look at specs. If I cared for power and not for Nintendo games then there's a ton of choice in other consoles or in PC's. But I'm here for the mushrooms!
I play Nintendo games old and new and that's it, they're great games. Mario 64 is over 20 years old and still excellent fun to 100%. I play my WiiU almost daily and have rarely gone a single day without touching my 3DS since it was new.
