Hard Core Gamers are Stinky Freaks. –Nintendo

May 27, 2007

In a recent interview with Game Informer, NOA’s own VP of Corporate Affairs Perrin Kaplan had the nicest things to say about gamers…

So you’re already done with Paper and you’re ready for something next. The average consumer spends a little bit of time with it. You have to remember as a core gamer you have an insatiable appetite. You, at all costs, probably don’t shower or eat until a game is done. You’re a freak. And then you want the next one. I think we’ve launched a lot.

Full Interview Here.

Now, I can see that she has issues about gamers taking brand spanking new games, beating them and then chanting “GimiGimiGimiGimiGimi” . It is also hard to capture some quotes with text, this was a GI interview. But just maybe she comes home everyday and screams at her spouse, or dog, “THOSE DAMN LOOOOSERS ALWAYS WANT MORE, IT”S NEVER GOOD ENOUGH, AHHHHHHHH!!!”

When people in the industry basically compare video games as an addictive, drug-like stimulant, it does not bode well in these times of JT and Hillary C. for miss Big Bad P, to talk trash on her company’s main consumer base.

I wonder if Reggie thinks hardcores are stinky freaks too?

    You know, I was just wondering if “hardcore” gamers are really Nintendo’s main consumer base these days…

    Perrin got the balls to talk trash about hardcore gamers probably because they are no longer their main target consumers!

    The only reason Nintendo is still around is because of the gamers that stuck with Nintendo. The Core Nintendo gamers that bought the Wii opening day and help push Wii on the new consumers.

    “Hug em love em fuck em feed em but I don’t fucking need them.”

    -Jay Z/Perrin Kaplan

    True, but now they don’t need them anymore, do they?

    So fuck em. We will see who hangs around when they get another Playstation cripple them again. In this business its not if, but when.

    Regardless of what you say or what Perrin says, it’s hardcore gamers that drive Nintendo’s business. This is why they still make time for interviews, pay for adverts, and give scoops to mags and sites. Not to mention making the staple franchise games, which cover core and casual consumers alike, but are promoted by the core. Hardcore gamers are the biggest cash droppers in the market. The whole point of Wii is to increase that sub-sect of the demographic to multiply their revenue in due time.

    So, what you see here is Nintendo making snobby excuses because only the geeks complain. “Pfft, these fuckers need to get out of the basement” is probably what she said next. Those freshly printed dollars they’re amassing are making their heads big and clouding their vision.
