1UP.com did a retrospective three weeks ago on Nintendo, the company responsible for popular video game franchises such as Super Mario and Pokemon, highlighting its biggest accomplishments and its most unique characteristics.
Chris Kohler gives a brief, but informative, look at different aspects of Nintendo's history, design philosophy, key individuals, and its most influential products.
Having much experience with Nintendo's products, I found the retrospective to be engaging yet nothing surprising. This feature serves more as a quick guide for anyone who is unfamiliar with gaming's most enduring company.
The feature suffers from what I have come to expect from 1UP's features: lack of depth. The websites feature's are never that long, and leave one more curious than satisfied.
Regardless of depth, the feature is still a good read either as a refresher on Nintendo or as a decent introduction to its inner workings.
