There are either covert Nintendo fanboys concealed within the ranks of major media outlet the New York Times or else they, like many other intelligent adults, have finally recognized the fact that Nintendo makes some of the greatest games upon the face of the earth. In a recent post, the Times’ Chris Suellentrop called out Nintendo’s newest release in its flagship franchise Super Mario 3D World as “the most entertaining game that has been released this fall for any system,” even going so far as to state that Wii U is the only new console with a game worth playing this holiday season.
The article, while genuinely favorable toward the Big N, does acknowledge what has definitely been a rough year for the company in the home console space, with sales of the platform remaining largely unimpressive after a brief surge at the product’s launch. Suellentrop points to 3D World, however, as perhaps a saving grace for the floundering device, and a testament to the wisdom of waiting to pick up home consoles until they actually have games to play.
