When you think of games, what do you think of? Master Chief, Sonic the hedgehog, pac-man, and Rayman are answers for some people. However, most people would say "Mario," More people know Mario than Mickey Mouse, and Mario has become a phenomenon. From his 2D games, such as Super Mario World, to his revolutionary 3D platformers, like Super Mario Galaxy, Mario has had some of the greatest games created.
But the company behind Mario, Nintendo hasn't just created the Mario masterpiece. They created Zelda, Metroid, Animal Crossing, Star Fox, Kirby, Donkey Kong, the Wii games(Wii fit, wii sports, Wii play, Wii music) And the infamous Super Smash Bros. These series have been some of the most influential series in gaming, and no other developer has come close to the magic of Nintendo. Nintendo games have been played by all of us at one time, and they have impacted gaming so greatly, that without Super Mario Brothers, and Super Mario 64, gaming wouldn't be near what it is now. And with Super Mario Galaxy already giving developers new ideas, the magic of Nintendo is still alive.

Note: This debate will be mainly on Nintendo GAMES, not consoles. Consoles can be brought into the debate, but it must relate directly to the idea of nintendo games. Thanks in advance! If you want to debate consoles, I have another debate about the Wii and PS3 in challenge period.

why i should agree nothing is the best in the world and one of the smash bros. episode they borrow(may be steal) snakes that came from Metal Gear Solid which is from sony PS2 and sony has a very exciting game like "Burn out","G.T.A.","wipeout pure" and "metal gear" and compare to nintendo "mario" is just a man who jump on the enemy head to win but "burn out" is a car that crash another to win and the player need to be very good at controling because the car is very fast and you need to play this game undr stand my sentence

Opponents case:
1. First of all, Snake wasn't stolen to go in smash bros. Nintendo got a deal with Konami, and had legal rites to put Snake in(Same with Sonic)
2. Next, Snake was created by KONAMI, NOT SONY! Drop this argument
3. Mario does jump on heads to kill, and burnout does crash, yes, but that doesn't make either better. First of all, Wipeout, GTA, Burnout, and Metal Gear are all from different companies, i don't know which company you are defending!
My case
1. My opponent is saying that it takes skill to control the car, true, but does is not take skill to kill Bowser? Yes, it does! It takes skill to do it! Also, my argument is about influencing, and my opponent doesn't say how the games he mentions influences.
2. I think my opponent is thinking of games individually. I am talking about DEVELOPERS ON A WHOLE, CREATING FRANCHISES. Yes, individual games matter, but franchises matter more.

oh, and isn't Burnout on Nintendo consoles too? So was Metal Gear Solid 2?

Ha ha, ok, then! Just do what you can!
Vote Pro, because Con conceeds all arguments made.

Extend all of my first two speeches, saying why I win

I win because:
Nintendo has made the biggest impact
My opponent gives false evidence, because of too many companies given
My opponent never answered my arguments

Yo Pro, I totally agree wit you, this may seem weird but I think your debating style is similar to mine, and it seems that we both are supporters of video games, I dunno its weird, you just remind me of myself for some reason

I agree with the resolution of this debate topic, however, I feel like someone who considers themself a good debater should take this on anyway just to see if they could sway voters.o I'm curious to see the rebuttal. I'd do it but I have no time to debate this weekend :( Good luck to both of you!
