I honestly thought Star Fox Zero was a fantastic game. But the forced motion controls bring it down. "Forced" being the key word. If it supported the Pro Controller, I would have probably played it a lot more.
I don't see the problem with some of this. If a super easy mode is optional, what's the problem? How is Pikmin a ridiculous idea? I enjoy it. I think it's creative. If you don't like a game, that's cool, but I see nothing wrong with implementing new ideas. And I've met quite a few people that enjoy Pikmin. I never got into the series until I played 3, myself.
This, I feel, really showcases Nintendo's core problem with developing titles. They are OBSESSED with developing for children who have no interest in playing their games to begin with. Adding in super modes where you can't die, structuring entire games around their tutorials, and conceptualizing and releasing ridiculous ideas that simply have no real audience, such as Pikmin or Codename S.T.E.A.M.
