What does everyone think??
Of course, it's a matter of opinion...

So true. The N64 pad is the only pad I've ever used for a FPS where it's felt really natural. I think it's down to the position that pad puts your hand in while playing them.
> Zelda works perfectly,
Ah, a fine FPS zelda is too ;^)
Don't think the cube pad is as well suited to the FPS genre as the 64's pad was though.
It'd be good in ninty released another model of official pad. Somewhere between incredibly unlikely and never going to happen, but it'd make FPS games much more playable.
> I dissagree, Nintendo have never done just they want.
Nintendo always make a console how they want to! They don't make it to impress other developers, to WOW the crouds of people. They create a console to make 'their' games. If other people develop for their console then that is a bonus to them.

They've survived because of a few big name properties they have, Mario, Link and most of all Pokemon!

Narr, there's MILLIONS of people in Japan that would buy the latest 're-release' of an old Nintendo game, or the latest Pokemon game that would keep Nintendo afloat.
I don't really consider Nintendo to be as BIG today as they were a few years ago. A while back Mario use to be the most known video game character, but I don't know if the same can be said now. Ask Joe Average Gamer to name the first game character that comes into his head and he will more than likely say Lara Croft or Solid Snake.
Nintendo haven't really had much success with their last two console, so it will take some doing for them to regain their name as a main console provider.
I'm not dissing Nintendo entirely. I personally think they are a fantastic game, and when they actually bother to make and release a game they are always QUALITY, FUN games. It's just they don't seem to come very often anymore...
You can't blame them. It's their company so they can do whatever they want. Just don't come crying to us EU gamers when the fade away!
