Nintendo

Nintendo is not something you would call a conventional video game company. What started out as a Japanese trading card company has since become one of the biggest gaming corporations in existence. You would thing we have seen everything there is to see from them by now. With dozens of beloved intellectual properties, a number of highly successful and unsuccessful hardware, and large fan base, both young and old, Nintendo means a lot to this industry. It’s one of the reason people are so anxious to see their next piece of gaming hardware, codenamed NX. Whether you like Nintendo or not, you’ve no doubt been affected by they’re long history with the gaming industry.

However, Nintendo is not a company that rests on its laurels. It’s tried its hand in several different avenues including virtual reality, touch screens, motion controls, stereoscopic 3D and most recently mobile gaming. For better or for worse, it takes chances, both with its hardware and beloved IP. Some people like it, some absolutely hate it, and others are just along for the ride. It’s been a bumpy road, especially this current generation, but the brand remains an undeniable staple of this industry. After a century and a quarter, that’s definitely worth something.

Happy birthday, Nintendo.
