Why Windwaker is better than Ocarina of Time.

Before I delve in to what will undoubtably anger the large majority of Nintendo fans, I want to make something clear. I'm not arguing that Windwaker (WW) is more influential or more important than Ocarina of Time (OoT), so put down that pitchfork. My intention is to show off Windwaker's strengths in light of what most people consider the greatest game of all time.

Also, I realize there is a number of you who haven't finished WW or OoT. And for you, I've pre labeled the spoilers in Blue text.
OK! let's get into the nitty gritty.

What does the "U" in Wii U stand for?

A lot goes in to making a home gaming console. Everything from market trends to user-base, third party support to ease of use is considered. So how did Nintendo land on the TV/tablet combo? And was that decision a good one? Lets talk about what people say about the Wii U and weather or not we should be worried about Nintendo as a whole.

In Defense of the Virtual Console.

Recently, Rare released an anthology of its best games on the Xbox One. Since then, many phrases have been thrown around the Internet, comparing Rare Replay to Nintendo's virtual console. Things like "Xbox has more N64 games then the Wii U!" And "Rare knows how to update their backlog and Nintendo doesn't!"

Words like these sent my Nintendo fanboy side into an outrage! But I stay calm, and politely decline to comment... But sometimes you just gotta let it out.

Rare's backlog is so infinitesimally small compared to Nintendo's. Rare puts 30 games on a disc, and everyone praises them. Why does it take Nintendo so long to release games on the Virtual Console? Because there are thousands of them!
