You can say a lot of nice things about Nintendo games. Nintendo hardware, too. Wildly successful, iconic and timeless are just three of them. But how often can you say something Nintendo made was genuinely cool?
Not very often. Unless you go back to the 1960's, to a time before Nintendo was making video games.
It's well known that Nintendo hasn't always made video games. I mean, it's logic: the company is over 100 years old, and in that time has had its hand in everything from playing cards to love hotels.
