Hey everyone,

 

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 :D

Welcome, you've got a nice array of games. I even spot SP: The Stick of Truth (hilarious game).

Everything can change, but I'm never changing who I am

So what you're saying is your dad was a sega fanboy?

Welcome to the forums and to Nintendo gaming! Where it's gameplay over graphics and the waiting game is our favorite game to play.

Welcome, that's really cool about your dad. He must of been a badass. I was away from nintendo for a long time too, until I got a 2ds and fell in love with Nintendo all over again. As a previous poster said, Nintendo is the last hope for video games :)

Nah... it was just business to him, and he hated his Nintendo counterpart personally xD

Nice, welcome to the forums.

What'd your dad think about your purchases? I'm guessing he wasn't too impressed.

Like I said, it was just business to him, one of the many brands he was importing (Diapers, soda...).

Anyway, I'm not really in touch with him anymore.

Hello! And welcome to Wii U forums! I am Yoshi (as you can see...)

 

I see you have all the great Wii U games, I like how most of the spines are blue unlike here where they are just white... if I were to recommend a game I would probably say that sonic racing game and that sonic platforming game since you're a Sega fan. (I am bad with names) and the Asssassin's creed series is worth a shot if you're into that sort of thing.

At first i was like "I don't care if you're a Nintendo fan why do people keep advertising this?" but that was actually a pretty interesting background which gave meaning to the title. Have fun here and stuff.


"So if Zero Suit Samus is fanbait for guys, where is the fanbait for girls? Why isn’t Captain Falcon wearing a thong or sporting a chest twice the size of his last model? Why doesn’t Mario have an absurd crotch buldge holding in his 10 inch slice of manhood? Why doesn’t Yoshi look like a Fist of the North Starcharacter.
 
That, my friends, is why the design is sexist."~Angelo M. D'Argenio-4/17/2014
