Would you want more book, music, and tv adaptations of Nintendo's properties?

Provided they were done by the best and/or most favorable groups?

In a perfect world, there's a fun TV series about daily life in the world of Splatoon. In the world we live in, there's the Adventures of Super Mario Bros 3.

I don't have much hope for Nintendo cartoons.
Know the most important contribution of the organ Fund science girls type. It's true!

Eh. Not the worst adaptation of a video game I've seen. Of the Mario Trilogy, I find Super Mario World to be the worst.

No. Video games are already better than movies and TV shows.

In terms of what?

They're interactive! You can't interact with the characters in the TV show without finding the actors. That would be creepy.
Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

When I'm watching a really good movie, I find myself thinking "wow! I wish I could be at this place/could be doing these things/could be that person!"

When I'm playing a really good game I pretty much am never thinking "gee I wish someone else would do all this so i could watch instead"

There's things each medium can do better than the other, they're two very different beasts. I say video games are better because they have way more potential and are inherently more immersive, but besides that, Nintendo doesn't have any stories worth telling in film, or at least any that would be better watched than played. Nintendo understands that in a game, the game part comes first. They understand everything else should exist to serve the gameplay. They make the game, and give it a story only because the story serves the game. I don't think I've ever played a Nintendo game where the gameplay was deliberately made worse in order to accomodate the story.

I haven't played Metroid: Other M.

Eh. Some people prefer the content within the game itself. The gameplay is secondary to them.

I guess I just want another Super Mario Adventures. I mean, considering what Archie Comics have done for Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man...

Those people shouldn't play games and are holding the medium back.

Those people picked the wrong form of entertainment to be a fan of.

Have they? I mean, sure, any can play a specific game, but how many are will to play a game that has an unfavorable world or player avatar?

I mean, what made arcades, and later, the NES Popular in the first place? What about "PAC-MAN Fever?"

All in all I'd rather play games than watch a show or movie, but how many games are as funny as a really good comedy flick?

Duck Game is pretty funny, but I don't think that would translate to a movie version.
