* A war within the Creator/{{Nintendo}} fandom has brewed since 2010 due to the influence of Creator/SeanMalstrom. On one side stand the "Orthodox" Nintendo fans, who just enjoy the games for what they are and tend to like whatever Nintendo gives them, on the other are the Malstromites, who tend to like only the Nintendo games that adhere to the Blue Ocean strategy. Things get heated in that the Malstromites tend to view those Nintendo games that do not adhere to the strategy as being actively destructive for Nintendo, and thus begin to flame games like SuperMarioGalaxy2, VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks, or MetroidOtherM, or even call for the firing of Satoru Iwata, Yoshio Sakamoto, and Shigeru Miyamoto, much to the dismay of Orthodox fans.

** Do ''not'' get started about the marriage and inheritance system in Awakening, either. People simply ''asking'' about how the system works and how they should use it will get lost in a shipping and Galeforce-crazed war zone.

At best, you'll get laughed at and not taken seriously. At worst, you'll be declared the very reason why gaming has gone down the tubes.

** The gender of [[TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora]] has also caused various flamewars similar to Sheik, but it's even worse as there hasn't been any WordOfGod on it.

** Is[[spoiler: SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker]] really dead? If so, should he stay dead or should he return? If he does come back, will it ruin the game or save it? ** Is it a good thing or a bad thing that the Batmobile seems to be the main focus of ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamKnight''? ** Will the ''Arkham Knight'' season pass be worth the $40 price or not?
