Why does everyone want Star fox, Metroid or F-Zero so badly?

Default Why does everyone want Star fox, Metroid or F-Zero so badly?

I believe that Nintendo games have a certain appeal to all the audience so why are hardcore gamers want Star Fox, Metroid or F-Zero games to be there? I can understand Metroid but why the other two? We got Mario Kart, Zelda games and Pokemon as well as Fire Emblem which are hardcore enough so why would you want Star Fox or F-Zero?

For starters I'm pretty sure MK makes F-Zero redundant (but I've never played F-Zero aside form the first one) so not sure there. Metroid has some good games (particularly the Gamecube series) and would effectively be Nintendo's answer to the current popularity of FPS. I haven't ever played a Starfox game so not sure about that one either. i might get Starfox 3D eventually though.

F-zero wouldnt be redundant because of mario kart considering f-zero doesnt have any items or luck based play at all. It is the original nintendo racing series. I shouldnt even have to explainwhy for metroid at all. I can see why there hasnt been a new starfox game though. I don't think the ds one sold well at all, and not even assault had super great sales, but decent reception by fans. The sf64 remake didnt sell well and it was said if it didnt there might not ever be a new game.

Why do people want pokemon so badly? Why do people want zelda so badly?

Answer: People like different things and thus want different things. All the games you listed are very different. The only ones that are similar are Fzero and Mario Kart and even those two are pretty different.

Because surprisingly enough, having more variety in the types of games we get to play is actually a good thing

Because those people who are wanting those games are fans of those franchises. It's that simple.

It's like those who are begging for Half-Life 3, and those who begged for Duke Nukem Forever before its disappointing release.

Personally, I would like a new Star Fox game, one that is pretty much a new Star Fox 64 (not that 3DS remake, I played it already). I like it as a space shooter. I haven't played enough Metroid and F-Zero games tho.

Who said "hardcore" gamers wanted those games? People have been huge fans of those games because of their gameplay, not because they're hardcore. If you a have series that affects you in a way that makes you crave it more, why not ask for more?

Also, it's not "everyone". Maybe the reason why such new games aren't being made is because of the fan bases that are much lower than, say, Mario, Zelda and Kirby for examples. That's a part of the video game business.

Well, they are epic games.
And quality games too.
Plus you are pretty much guaranteed a good game is you buy one.

I prefer racing games that don't punish you for doing well.

Because people like games and want to play them? Why do people have to ask why someone "wants" something and why do they always think they need to call out others because they want something they don't?

F-Zero GX rubber banding isn't as bad as you're suggesting it is though. In the end machines still have to exhaust boost in order to catch up to you at max speed settings. That issue only works for Story Mode

Isn't that only in story mode though?

Other than GX I've only played GP Legend and Maximum Velocity, rubberbanding was pretty bad on higher difficulties in Maximum Velocity but it wasn't nearly as bad in GP.

Anyway, the thread has turned into some freaking F-Zero argument, but we got the point to begin with.

OP had to show his annoyance towards a demand, and we explain our point of view on the thing. GG.

People desire those three franchises because in most occasions in the past, those franchises had excellent entries in them. However, outside of the internet minority, there is not and never has been large clamoring for these franchises, even on some of their best games or on the best selling console of Nintendo. But I digress, more diversity, as Pimmis said, is always a good thing.

Can you hear yourself? It's Metroid... the greatest video game series of all time!

As for Star Fox, IDK. To me, SF really isn't anything special... it's just kinda weird IMO.

So Moon Chronicles came out today on the 3DS Eshop. After playing it (very fun by the way! Well worth $8) I can only wonder why we don't have a 3DS metroid game yet. Just re-skin the engine that Renegade Kid made as Metroid and I'd be happy Nintendo.
