That doesn't make sense. Someone who is 13 years old would have been born in 1993 or 1994. They wouldn't even have been able to play videogames until 1998 and 1999 at the earliest, which would have started them off at the peak of the N64 and Playstation. They would have truly gotten into games around 10 years old, or just a few years ago.
 
Someone like me, mid-20s, definitely grew up on Nintendo. I had an NES, an original Game Boy (got it the year it came out!), an SNES, and an N64.
 
It saddens me to see what Nintendo has become and how low they've sunk. But they did it to themselves. They started it with the Virtual Boy and each idiotic mistake they made with the N64 just started putting nails in their own coffin.

The Only Mistake nintendo ever made is milking Mario, Samus, DK, Kirby, Link and Fox, if they made new first party games they'd be good, but they are getting old now. Game Cube was the worst system they ever made, and the wii gets old fast.

I think all of those characters (except Kirby) could be good again. The real mistake they made was making all of them kiddy to the point of being annoying. Metroid, in 2D form, could be good again. If they made it like Super Metroid with modern graphics and a larger world. A TRUE sequel to Super Mario 64 would be sweet. A mature Zelda game with none of this changing into other animals BS and a true adventure theme with a new story that isn't tied to the SNES game could be amazing. Star Fox could be good too if they concentrated on the sci-fi flying action and got rid of all of the other elements that have brought the series down. Nintendo COULD "come back". But right now it seems they'd rather pull as much money out of the pockets of their fans as they can before they do have to do something truly good.

Nintendo is great. I grew up on NES,SNES and N64. I still think they are the best, Zelda owns nearly all.

Star Fox is actually great the way it is, but Command was horrible, Assualt was awesome.
