My brother introduced me to the Nintendo World at the tender age of 2 and I haven't looked back. While other systems have made their way into my home, Nintendo still owns the place. From playing Contra with my dad to spending sleepless nights with friends beating Tales of Symphonia, Nintendo is the one responsible for my greatest gaming experiences.

Innovation and profitability. The DS and Wii have turned the industry upside down and showcased that just a new gloss of paint has grown stale with gamers. Additionally, while it may not benefit gamers per se, Nintendo makes a profit on each system it sells, which greatly differs from competitors.
Nintendo has still failed to demonstrate a solid online experience with its systems and the lack of advertising with titles is bothersome. Additionally, Nintendo's focus on profitability can be seen as a weakness, as titles like a Pokemon MMORPG might never be seen because the company makes so much money on the current portable games.
