Awesome: Nintendo
  • How about bringing the entire American game industry Back from the Dead, basically single-handed? Others took up the torch, but Ninty led the way after Atari screwed the pooch.
  • Nintendo showed why they were top banana after Universal Studios tried to sue them for Donkey Kong. Nintendo tried to be reasonable and offered partnership. Universal refused, hoping to destroy the video game company. At a formal dinner where Universal expected Nintendo to agree to pay profits from their game they were slapped with the truth: the story King Kong is actually public domainnote , and Nintendo were now taking Universal to court.
  • E3 2010. While Microsoft was going gaga over the Kinect, and Sony showed little of note (except perhaps Playstation Move), when Nintendo's press conference came, and the public was expecting waggling and casual games, Nintendo instead announced (and showed of) AAA-title upon AAA-title upon AAA-title, and topped it off with the announcement of the Nintendo 3DS! Sure, some of those games are kinda base breaking today, and the 3DS got hampered a bit by some unpleasant news, but at that time it was nothing less than awesome and proved to us why Nintendo was still in this industry! Saying that the fandom rejoiced is an understatement. Summed up here. (Slightly NSFW)
  • E3 2014. How do you start off the event? By making Iwata and Reggie fight each other to the death!
    • At the end of the Smash Bros. Invitational, Reggie congratulates the champion and officially sums up his Memetic Badass status with this:
    Reggie: "And next time I'll come kick your ass!"
  • So a local group of Moral Guardians were bashing Nintendo for releasing MadWorld on the Wii console despite Nintendo saying that the Wii was meant for everyone. Their response: That the Wii is indeed for everyone...and gamers that play games like Mad World are included with everyone.
  • The page image for Made of Indestructium is a Game Boy that still worked after being inside a building that was bombed during the Persian Gulf War. And in a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, Nintendo sent the nurse who owned it a free replacement anyway.
