There’s no question Nintendo has made a huge impact on the gaming industry. Over the last couple of decades, Nintendo has been a change agent in the gaming space, prompting companies to look to the future when developing games or hardware.
Remember Super Mario 64? It was the first time that we saw Mario in all of his 3D glory and the first time, for sure, that we realized how fun 3D platforming could be. The Nintendo Entertainment System and the Super NES forced other companies to invent new ideas just to keep up. Even the Nintendo Wii, which was first to deliver fun motion-gaming, has set off a craze that might never be stopped.
