To market them for parents who buy games for their kids. it works. And Samus taking her clothes off in Metroid for the NES ain't kiddy. Oh those 8-bit flesh-coloured pixels *nosebleed*

It's their niche market.

I'm no game historian but Nintendo didn't used to be kiddy back when they dominated the console market with NES, SNES and Gameboy. Consoles back then were distinct from PCs. Games were on the Nintendo or the PC, not both, and consoles had special catridges. SNES games were even sometimes technologically superior to PC games! However, my impression is when Sony and later Microsoft came into the console market they started to make consoles that were effectively just game optimised PCs with PC parts and CDs etc. This meant that game developers could easily produce titles that work on both PCs and Sony/Microsoft consoles, a much more lucrative opportunity than just producing a game that only owners of a certain console could play and buy. Nintendo seemed to want to stay sort of unique so they decided to go into all the sorts of weird stuff they do now, in order to remain distinct from PC gaming and have their own market. No one wants to create PC gaming type games for the Nintendo when they can have a larger market by producing them for PC and the other consoles.

I don't think it is so "kiddy", but it is a matter of how you view things, I guess.

Those games may be "kiddy" but they are fun as hell.

The style may be "kiddy" as you say, but gameplay, music and everything else is ownage. Hell, it's their games and consoles that sell. Try to get all green stars in Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Aherm! Conker's Bad Fur Day.

Sorry to say, Punisher, but all those games you mentioned suck, in my honest opinion. Not for my taste.

I agree with kenji720rs. I hate Mario and I still enjoyed Super Mario 3D Land

Bad Fur Day is the most epic game I've ever played.

I like Halo, but Reach kind of let me down. What I came here to say was:

YOU DARE INSULT THE DRAGON SLAYING GLORY THAT IS SKYRIM?! YOU SHALL BE SMOTE. TWICE. ONCE WITH SHRIMP.

Donkey Kong

Released by Nintendo, this game is about a monkey/gorilla that was mistreated by a carpenter named Jumpman. The monkey/gorilla kidnaps Jumpman's girlfriend and escapes. In the end, upon completion of the game, Jumpman kicks the monkey/gorilla off the building and kisses his girlfriend and presumably leaves to get another monkey/gorilla to abuse.

Donkey Kong was kind of dark, upon inspection.

Or find another whore to hump/abuse. Probably both. And Donkey Kong's teeth were so dang scary!

Rage is also an epic game. Kind of short, but really awesome.

*shoots Pillbug in the knee. WIth an arrow.*

Lots of classic games were awesome. Hell, the first Final Fantasy was an NES game if I'm not mistaken. Or it was at least available on it.
You dare call a game which, back in the day, literally had uncensored swearing in it, kiddy; Then you get your own knee-arrow.
