Will Nintendo ever not make a game without memes in it?
The word "meme" has lost all meaning.
>mfw people refer to image macros as memes
>This is X from the Y series. It was featured in Q and did B.
What /v/ wants every trophy description to be.
NoA thinks memes are the new cool thing that all the kool kids are into, so naturally they'd want to cram them into Nintendo games to try and appeal to a wider audience. Failing or not, it's what they do now.
>Everyone suddenly getting into a uproar over these trophies
Let's be honest here. Have you ever read the descriptions for the Melee or Brawl trophies?
I mean, Nintendo assumes by now that the regular Smash Bros. fan will know the basic knowledge about these trophies. So why not add a little fun?
Fun fact, by the way: the guy who wrote parts of the Mother series wrote most of the trophy text for the Japanese version.
It would have been nice if the programmers for the original games would write the descriptions for their respective trophies. Give a little bit of inside information and why it is unique.
>that is pure rage, just pure fucking rage. this is why video games were better in the 90s
Funny you say that, because in the 90s games were filled with pop culture references too. It wasn't any better or worse, it's still just referential "humor".
Chances are, if you'd grown up a decade later, you'd think it nothing of it.
>When most people think of Samus they think of her wearing the Varia Suit.
I'm not most people then.
It's exactly the same thing. /v/ has no idea what meme actually means. Shakespeare was also full of memes. In fact approximately 100% of all literature written before the advent of modern narrative techniques was.
>An entire game is ruined because it references Thing You Don't Like
And why are pop culture references fine to you, but not memes? They're more or less the same, you don't have to make a joke, or say something witty, just make a shout out to something that's all the rage.
The DNA of the soul!
you guys are ignoring the most blatant, in your face meme Smash has
