idk about yall but i'm starting to get real sick of this cult of personality around nintendo that's obsessed with its own image of video game purism, e.g. "nintendo remembers that video games should be about fun :-)"

they latch on to anything, including this recent metroid news
the reality is:

-nintendo is aware of its own brand, audience, and reputation
-they took a look at the situation and made the call.

that's it.
this kind of anthropomorphization of video game brands, assigning them political significance (within the world of video games, not govt obviously), and the seeming inability (or selective ability) to differentiate organizations and individuals is toxic, full stop.
