Sm Mario Do you think Nintendo is "Riding Mario" too much and neglecting its other franchises?

I mean, in the whole first decade of 2000, we've had tons of Mario games and only one F-Zero console game.And StarFox games are few and far between, though we still have yet to really have a truly worthwhile sequel to StarFox 64. Don't get me wrong: I absolutely love the Super Mario franchise and have ever since I was little...and yes I understand that Mario is Nintendo's Top Mascot..but seriously we've had enough Mario games for every system for the now..and maybe it's time they gave the plumber a rest? Yes they try to give as much attention to their franchises as possible (except poor Kid Icarus--yes I'm aware of the upcoming sequel for 3DS but it's almost two decades late), but it seems they don't put as much effort into them as they do Mario....

And I'm not just talking about the main Super Mario games, all they seem to want to do is make another 1,000 Mario Parties, and okay Mario Sports games....would you rather have a new StarFox or another Mario Party?

Screw that, I want a new Excitebike for the Wii.

But to be honest, I agree, but then again, who earns Nintendo the most money, Mario or Kirby?

Dude, there are 3 games in the excite series on wii already, and one of them is excitebike. Also, the original is on VC, so that makes four.

It could be interesting

Mario Party is a good example of milking mario for all he's worth. But really its a tactic thats been used from all companys. Heck look at Mickey Mouse, gets milked far to much too, but it sells.

But looking at Nintendo right now, they seem to be branching past Mario and looking into other franchises. Frankly I want to see another ice climber game.

Nintendo will always milk Mario, so it's a good thing they're mostly quality games. Zero is just glad to know Kid Icarus is coming back.

Personally I'm more annoyed of Pokemon than Mario, but I'm also getting tired of waiting.
C'mon Nintendo, where's my space animals and manly racers?

Yeah I'm glad at the new Kid Icarus as well. The poor game was completely overshadowed by Metroid because they were released on the same day in the US. It's so tragic because the original Kid Icarus is an amazing game, yet so underrated.

Also, yes I think we've waited long enough for a new F-Zero. F-Zero Wii now.
