Nintendo bias in the game industry?

Do you folks feel there is Nintendo bias in the game industry? As an example, Mario Odyssey is sitting right now at 97% in metacritic, when the game in my opinion definitely does not deserve such crazy scores. Is it a good game? It is really good but not 97% good. Also you can see it in top X games of all time lists, which are usually dominated with Nintendo games. I understand lots of players grew up with these games so nostalgia might be playing a big factor in it. I’m wondering what you think about this?

Mario was all set, when you hype things to insane levels
I mean E3 lines, awards and shit
Honeymoon soon gets over
Also next Zelda , will beat this one
There were many Gotys where Arms, MarioRabbids came into top selection ignoring other titles from other genres

If anyone can defend Arms , i dont know what to say ....

But mostly its about brand,mindshare, how iconic a franchise is, and all thats left is selective retention…lots of factors like casuals, nostalgia, playing with kids, feeling like kid again etc

I never agreed with FFXV ratings, and i bet you cannot sell same game 5 million with different name
Also thought UC4 was over rated, and it was the case since NDog was fav by then thanks to Tlou,UC2 etc

Damn i cant even… Grin
Dice awards cleared all my doubts

Best handheld samus
best mobile fireemblem (not gorogoa or Mon valley2)
best sound design mario
best strategy mario kingdom
best AG Zelda
Best game design zelda
best family snipperclips, it has also won another award
best direction zelda

And you can guess Goty

Nier team won best RPG and noone from SEinx showed up, well deserved insult to this industry

Yeah all these awards are a joke. The game industry is built on adults who grew up playing on the NES, so Nintendo can do no wrong. You can see it clearly in the top X lists. Just look at Edge magazine’s top 100 games of all time.

Breath of the Wild is number 1.

No no Sound design of Mario is better than Hellblade Grin
And Snipperclips over Pyre Grin

I am wondering how Injustic2 won over Arms

Edge guy seems like another man-child

Last time Nintendo won at Dice was in 1998 (if I’m reading the right source), how is it a bias?

I forgot Dice gave best racing to Mkart, not to GTS or Forza
Even Recycled ports are Gotys Grin
