While I realize this is old to them, therefore foreign, you can't figure out which end goes into the game console?
I played an Atari once and it was "old" to me...i could still work the damn thing.
Truth. It's not exactly rocket science. If it makes you guys feel any better, I've got two teenage brothers who know full well what an NES is and how it works. Many of their friends do as well. It's a similar cartridge concept to games they've played throughout their lives (N64, various Game Boys).
That said, I watched a "Kids react to a Walkman" video and they didn't give the kids headphones at first, so I thought that was a little offsides, as some kids were perplexed when music didn't play after they pressed play. But I guess that would given things away too quickly.
What was the last significant character they have created? They are just rehashing things from the 80s and 90s repeatedly.
That's my main problem with nintendo and an issue they have in general. You aren't going to bring new players into your fanbase by rehashing the same shit for 25 years. They are completely oblivious to this fact to or just don't care. (most likely the latter) If you want to bring in playstation or xbox one fans then create some new ****ing IP's and stop releasing sequels and rehashes.
