Forums → Video Games → [April Fools]How do you guys feel about EA's announced take over of Nintendo?
So, even though I'm kind of disappointed, I think it would be fun to see EA's take on classic Mario and Zelda games. I also want to see what EA ends up doing with the console.
This is the article I read..
So, what are your opinions? Where does EA go from here?

Personally, I think EA ruins everything they touch. But.......
This should provide a good background for anyone not familiar with the Nintendo/EA relationship.
Better pack my boxes and live in my hole in the 90s because there's no way this can end in a positive note. Microsoft took Rare, now EA took Nintendo. I'm so disappointed in the gaming market...
I'm actually glad EA is taking over Nintendo. I hope there will EA Sports Mario games. I can't wait until there's a Mario hockey game!

There are a few Mario sports games where you can play hockey. They were horrible.
Oh you evil evil man. I curse you forever, and I curse your descendents forever. (not really)
Mario has sports, he went to the Olympics several times, he plays soccar (mario strikers charged), and he engages in fist fights with snake (SSBB)
I'm assuming none of you guys actually clicked the link, because I did and I got Rick-Roll'd. Very funny dude, very funny.
we did, but it's more funny to keep the joke up for others who didn't yet.
I was actually convinced a little, until I saw Manly's post.
if that was an joke then ha ha ha (sarcasitic alert) if you exuse me i will be clearing my youtube history
I tell R2..and I tell you..it is literally impossible to Rick Roll me. Good job on getting the others, though
I don't like it. Look, I am a big fan of EA despite the fact that the mainstrategy games production has been declining ever since Red Alert 3. People who believe that EA ruins everything it touches, either don't like RTSs' at all, or don't know about EA in its glory days. I've seen many of them, but unfortunately, most of them believe so because they are prejudiced against EA. Some of them even liked playing battlefield 3 and SWTOR with the argument: "EA published these games, it didn't develop them", which still contradicts their opinion about EA anyway.
Anyway, the reason that I don't like that EA is going to take over nintendo is because Nintendo makes games for children 5 - 12 years old mainly. Even if EA keeps that up, I've never seen it develop this kind of games and the difference will be obvious. Besides, I don't like EA taking over almost everything in the gaming market. I need some diversity, despite the fact that I've grown up with EA's RTSs'.
I dont really care but besides that what a wierd approach
would be interesting to see what they would do with metroid.... But I do not think they would be able to handle the classic games like Zelda and Mario.
O.O WHAT?! This is the first I have heard of this! Don't take away my Mario Brothers! And my Gamecube! The world has changed now...
Personally, I like EA. They did good with Bioware and brought some good games, but they need to stay away from Nintendo! You can't ruin a classic, you just can't man. I disprove.
Playing along with the joke after two and a half weeks isn't very funny.
