Not shocked the FPS is getting votes. I guess FPS is the new kiddy genre.

Need some sports games. Sega compensated (very well) when ea took their sports games away, don't see why Nintendo cant do the same, though they'd just plonk marios face on it.

You're right, there was no appeal to the FPS genre before the 360 and PS3. Wolfenstein, Doom, Quake, Unreal, Hexen, Heretic, Half-Life, Goldeneye, or Perfect Dark certainly weren't popular games or anything. But ya know, them FPS kiddies today. Get off my lawn, stinkin kids!
Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity.

They have a game in every genre. Rather than make a "new IP" (which is just reskinning an existing IP-- Seriously. Mario Sunshine with an original character at the protagonist would be a new IP to people) just make use of the almost hundred IPs they have. Might be more than 100 now.

The best part of this is that GoldenEye and Perfect Dark were both Nintendo console FPS games, and were some of the best-selling at the time. But yeah, FPS is for kiddies and dudebros.

Nintendo already has sports games they could use such as 1080, Wave Race, & NBA Courtside. The one genre they truly lack is an FPS, where they closest thing they have is Metroid Prime, & it's only in the rigid minimal requirement that you shoot things in a first person view; the rest of the game follows an exploration based action adventure structure that is similar to Zelda, the same as Metroid has traditionally done.
Remember kids, it's only an RPG until someone gets hit with a meteor; Then it's a JRPG!

Nintendo already did Geist and the Metroid Prime games. They don't need more FPS.

A MOBA could work on Wii U an they certainly have the characters for it, but the communities from LoL and DOTA2 kind of put me off of that idea.

Maybe their own Platinum styled action game? If they don't want to invest in a new IP, maybe FZero or something, Captain Falcon would work. Not like they're ever going to make another racing one :(
I love you.

I went with simulation. Be interested in what would happen if Nintendo made a sim of any sort.

I think Nintendo is pretty good on RPGs. I'd Like to see Fighting, FPS, Survival Horror and Strategy (Like those Samurai games Sega Makes). Nintendo only has a few or none in these categories. The only "Fighting" game Nintendo has is arguably Smash Bros.
I hate people in general.
