Do you think old Nintendo consoles deserve to be "brought back"?

    I'm asking because I came across an article mentioning an improved version of the Game Boy. We've already seen Nintendo release better versions of their NES and SNES Mini consoles, so I'm wondering if you think the old Nintendo consoles deserve this treatment or do you think the company should keep their focus on new consoles?

    No. Nintendo messes up modern consoles enough as it is.

    I don't agree because I think the Switch went pretty well, but I do agree they shouldn't update old consoles. I don't think they should do it to the Gameboy. That would just be weird. They should just bring Gameboy to Virtual console on the Switch

    Yea I think they should just port all the games they can to Virtual Console and make a semi decent search system to find them all. But they probably make more money going the mini console route.

    I think it is really just for the older market. People who grew up in that era that owned a NES or SNES, making it a good thing. As if you were to get those games again for the NES some games can cough up to $200+. Which insane unless your a hard core collector. So I think Nintendo is doing something good, as a tribute to the originals.

    No. SNES and NES deserved remasters because the games were old and rather good.
    N64, GCN, DS and all the others should get ported onto the switch virtual console.

    I wouldn’t say just because a game is old you should remake or remaster it. TMNT IV (snes) got a remaster that was hot garbage, and the original is much better). Plus tons of newer games get remasters anyways. Look at OoT, Majora’s Mask, even Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. Besides, how would you even go about remaking a game like the original Legend of Zelda?

    Give it the Metroid: Zero Mission treatment and remake it with the Link Between Worlds engine. Put it on the switch or 3ds.

    Oh, and when I said that old games deserved remakes, i kinda only meant the good ones. Overall, I was glad to see which games they put on the SNES classic.

    Yes and no.

    No, because I think Nintendo should focus on the Switch more and get going with the paid subscription service rather than putz around with retro system remakes. Many of these games could be put on the Virtual Consoles of the Switch and or 3DS.

    Yes, because Nintendo can market nostalgia like nobody else and have older people relive the past and the new generation experience the good old days of video gaming. If this allows for Nintendo to make money and improve their digital infrastructure (ex: servers for online gaming which still sucks).

    Also, I think Nintendo was smart not to put all their eggs in one basket due to the failure of the Wii U. Nintendo still has the 3DS for better or worse and it's still selling well. As for the Switch, I have high hopes for it and look forward to many years with it.

    Yeah that would be a good idea for like the n64 and maybe GameCube but @Marc quick question do you mean like more of the mini/classic consoles or do you mean like they bring them back in a new improved way also would they take cartridges or have the games in the console digitally?

    if they made a ds system with working online for games that'd be pretty neato. they could have a system with built-in games, and a cartridge slot so you can play your own copies as well if you'd rather want to play those

    Definitely think these games should be resurrected! .... Well at least the NES and SNES and N64. I can't imagine Nintendo getting much farther than that honestly, Gamecube is far too recent for a reboot. But if they do a N64 Classic they really gotta fix that availibilty issue... don't appreciate spending upwards of $150 for something that retails for far less :dead:
