I gotta do some fancy clothes shopping tomorrow. A wedding is coming up and I have no fancy clothes. Man, do I HATE dressing up! It's just not for me...but alas, it must be done. Not the most fun way to spend an evening off, but so be it. See you in a few, short hours!
Some of you might remember a feature we did on GoNintendo a couple years back. I was getting really fed up with some outlets that were putting together 'days' of hate or 'weeks' of hate when it came to gaming. They were putting together entire features aimed at spreading the hate that games/companies get. I don't care what company or game is being bashed. I felt like the idea was an absolutely ridiculous one. Why would you want to celebrate hate?
I found out soon enough why. Some of those outlets that put together hate features announced that they had their highest traffic ever when that content was being shared. I find that so deeply saddening that I can't even fully explain it. It goes far deeper than just the hate people have for video games, but that's a discussion for another day on another blog. Here we talk about games!
I've noticed that ever since that initial push, more outlets have been running with articles that aim to hate on all sorts of content. I really cannot stand the sight of that stuff. I won't knock anyone that enjoys the content or works on it, but it's not something I personally enjoy. I want to combat that with the complete opposite approach. I wanted to do a week of love and that's just what we did.
Quite frankly, I thought our week of Nintendo love was amazing. We had commentary from all sorts of people on Nintendo. I'm talking about well-known gaming personalities, celebrities and even Reggie Fils-Aime himself! I'm still deeply humbled/honored by all the people that participated. Now I'm thinking I'd like to do it again! The question is, would you like to see it?
Are you down for another week or two of Nintendo love features on GoNintendo? It would take the place of our End of Day thoughts for each day, and we'd have features written by all sorts of Nintendo fans. If that sounds interesting to you, please let me know!
