Characters, which are unique, appear only in Nintendo games. Game athmosphere is special, there is right amount of humor, action and tension. Most of the games suit equal to children and adults and the can be played together.

Nintendo wrote the games console rule book!

1. They don't tack anything additional onto their machines, no dvd players etc. They are games machines, pure and simple.
2. They have so many novel new games and characters that no other console can come close to.
3. They can breathe a whole new lease of life into existing franchises and add completely new dimensions to dying genres.
4. They're the cool western underdogs that everyone who doesn't own a nintendo console wishes they had.
5. they just rule.

They aren't particularly special, they just know their market, and that market loves them - as clearly shown in this thread.

And in repsonse to Timppa - unique characters only appear in Nintendo games? Oh dear.

And that I guess is the other main point - they have the most rabid fanboys.

That stupid robot thing was incorporated into gameplay, making it still a games dedicated console.

We're not the most rabid fanboys. We do get angry at things but Sega fans are even more angry than we are.

Because they hate Europe! :D

Seriously though, I find that a lot of Nintendo's games seem to have more care and attention to detail put into them. This isn't always the case (I personally hate Luigi's Mansion) but more often than not it leads to a more fulfilling gaming experience.

Nintendo games are fun. While The Big N have always delivered quality hardware, complete with flashy gfx etc, their focus has been on the games and user experience.

The Wii is perhaps the best example of this.
