I guess the headline sums it up pretty well: I am very new to Nintendo games!
Up until I was 13, my father used to be the official importator of Sega products (among other things) on a French island in the west indies.
I've had every single Sega console and handheld, hundreds of games, accessories, goodies...
And yet, whenever I would ask for a Nintendo or Playstation console, my father would say "I won't give that prick a cent"
To this day, I've never known who the "prick" was, but I had never even touched a nintendo controller until I got a 3DS to play Luigi's mansion 2 last summer.
I fell in love with the game immediately, stopped playing and got a Gamecube to play the original Luigi's mansion first. Loved it too but the SCART output sucked, so I got a Wii with a YUV cable, plugged it on a CRT TV and loved it even more.
I still wish Sega hadn't stopped making consoles, but I have to say, I love the Wii U that I got two months ago almost as much as I love my Dreamcast. Trust me, that's something
