Nintendo Is Unstoppable
Remember those commercials that said, ‘Sega does what Nintendon’t’? Well, it turned out to be true. Sega ended up almost shutting down, left the hardware market entirely and is now Nintendo’s slave, as evidenced by their former mascot Sonic the Hedgehog’s appearance in ‘Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games’ and the forthcoming ‘Super Smash Bros.

A similar thing happened in the last few years, with Sony and Microsoft fanboys claiming that Nintendo had become too kiddy with their GameCube, while ‘real gamers’ play ‘Grand Theft Auto’ and ‘Halo’ and all those ludicrous things.
