There is the element too, it's like, behind every successful company (or giant) there is a large shadow they would rather hide away. It's not that these giants are 'bad', yet if Nintendo were sued for controversy back then it could have killed them. (If anyone remembers Wall-e; there is that sociological fan interpretation inspired by Becker's philosophies, although that may be going a little too much of a tangent) Nintendo may have had theirs with NES chip lockout (with Gaming Historian(??) asserting other companies [e.g. Tengen] did not like it, and felt the company was arrogant), the Pokémon Jynx (though Game Freak's work), then the controversial ventures like the game Time Twist, the arcade experiment Fascination, and the Love Hotels. Also lots of people may not know, Sega was originally for military (Service Games).
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
