Since the recent controversy about Nintendo shutting down and suing a couple of ROM sites, prompting Emuparadise to remove all Nintendo ROMS from their site in fear, this makes me realize how much of an asshole I was for knowing of and LOVING Nintendo in the first place. I currently have a Wii U, a 3DS, and a Switch, but I am now going to sell ALL of them, as well as their games and then NEVER play ANY of their games even ILLEGALLY EVER AGAIN because I hate them THAT MUCH NOW!
But I don't want to do that for a few reasons. First, since my sister got a Wii for her Birthday in January 2008, I have been sucked into parts of the Nintendo ecosystem and even supported a few of their pro-consumer decisions. Second, all my life, I have been a diehard fan of Super Smash Bros, and was VERY looking forward to Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
But thanks to Nintendo going this far to prevent piracy, I think they pretty much crossed the line at this point. If my view isn't changed, I am going to make an Ebay account, and put up listings for my Nintendo consoles and games to sell because I just don't want it anymore, all because I would feel uncomfortable to use it if it's made by an EVIL CORPORATION.
Please change my view, but I don't wanna fucking hear "You'd be missing out on exclusives!" Exclusivity doesn't make sense, and it never made sense to begin with. And it doesn't matter how good a game is. If it's from an evil corporation that I should hate with a passion, I don't want to use it even ILLEGALLY.
Can someone please help me here? Can someone please give me as many reasons as possible to LOVE EVIL CORPORATIONS???
