the créme de la créme of gaming aristocracy
"Mario, Luigi, Link, Samus Aran, Donkey Kong, Fox McCloud, Kirby, et al"
OK so I know who the first two are, and Donkey Kong obviously, but Fox McCloud of the clan McCloud? Does he have a Spanish friend and mentor who sounds suspiciously like an Edinburgh milk man? And, who the hell are Link and Samus Aran? I've been plying computer games since Pong and I've never heard of them.
When I think of Nintendo, I think of that annoying plumber and his crappy platform games, stupid cart racing games with children's characters and crappy under powered hardware like the NES, SNES, N64, Wii or Wii U.
I will not shed a tear for Nintendo, the sooner they die the better.
