No. Gunpei didn't leave the company right after the Virtual Boy, he left in 1996 after designing the Game Boy Pocket which was the last project he worked on. He felt he should stay with the company longer even though he already had plans to leave, since he felt he owed it to the company to design at least one more successful product to make up for the Virtual Boy's failure. Also he wasn't fired from the company, he resigned.

did you know Hiroshi Yamauchi wasn't actually a human being? He was a vessel that enclosed 7 yakuza oni spirits from 7 different regions in Japan. These oni monopolized the gambling in Japan with the hanafuda Nintendo cards and put a spell so that no other company could produce cards, truly evil.

Yamauchi, often referred to as "大魔王 ティラノ天堂" (Great Evil King Tyranotendo), tyranized the video games market with his monopolic practises, it is said that the Master System or the PC Engine didn't actually ever exist, and that they were invented time after so hide the fact that the Famicom was actually the one and only console existing in Japan.

I think you'll find that most of the world is like this. Only Westerners with their cradle-to-grave emotional blackmail/guilt/propaganda campaign stretching from the media to the national curriculum are the exception.

Not sure about him being responsible for the cartridges, but fucking over Yokoi was a very bad idea. Which is odd, because he was the one who pulled him off the assembly line in the first place because he recognized his talent. Overall I'd say he was what Nintendo needed at the time and made more good decisions than bad. Certainly better than what we've got now.

>Also he wasn't fired from the company, he resigned.

Japanese companies never fire people who have great industry acclaim. They just make their life hell by giving them menial tasks and not allowing them to actually focus on what they do best.

This pushes employees to resign on their own, as they have no way to express themselves within the confines of the company.

Most popular example would be Yu Suzuki, who was not allowed to work on anything meaningful after Shenmue tanked. He was so marginalized, that at one point even the executives at Sega did not know that they still had him employed. Dude had to quit and start up his own company to be able to keep making games.

They're a nation of old men with almost negative birthrates, an outrageously corrupted system where basically everything is controlled by Yakuza crooks(that are also glorified in videogames) and has tremendous social problems on so many levels it's not even funny.

Xenophobia is basically nation-sized locks on your front door when you live in a shitty neighborhood.
Just saying, Japan will never have any real trouble with Islam. For good reason, they don't let troublemakers make a home in their yard.

Now then, with that settled, Carts were shit in the 5th and 6th Gen due to the limits of storage size, but now they'd actually be extremely competitive with discs.
Nintendo should have stuck with Sony and discs. Microsoft's Xbox wouldn't be a thing today if they had, and we'd all be far better off for it.

Oh, you're going all out.
What meme are you going to pull off next, that Japan has high-rate suicides?

It's normal, you see, in 1st world countries. As in, actual 1st world countries with stable economies and homogenized culture, people don't tend to fuck like animals and lay offspring every year to overpopulate the country. Especially on a relatively small country (island) like Japan. Similar cases can be found in other small countries like Switzerland.
The fact they don't have overpopulation doesn't mean they're going extinct, smart boy.

>The fact they don't have overpopulation doesn't mean they're going extinct, smart boy.
not that other anon, but the low birth rates actually do mean they're going extinct. Too many old people in a welfare state makes pensions unsustainable, so you need to have immigration to compensate for the lack of childbirth. Which is btw why many liberals think mudslimes coming to Europe is a good thing without taking into consideration the vast cultural differences which makes them literally incompatible with modern western society.

There are 127 million people living in Japan, and studies indicate that 98.5% of that is Japanese. That hasn't changed in 10 years, when there were 127 million people living in Japan.

No one said that Japan is dying or it's doomed you morons, it's just not what that other moron is claiming to be, it's not an idillic country where everything works, it's a fucking social and economical disaster run by crooks like most other countries, the difference being that they have slanted eyes.

If you seriously believe that a country crippled by old age and subsequent pension problems, fucked up economy and stellar levels of corruption is anywhere near the levels of being a good country then you're either blissfully ignorant or have very low standards, or both.

Granted that again, most of those problems are common in every country in the world, but Japan's got a whole load of problems for their social and cultural mindset alone even without bringing the west in the picture.

Besides sometimes taking control over the market in some pretty iron-fisted ways, along with that pressure making some relations with third parties turn sour after the mid-90s, I'd say Yamauchi's biggest mistake was not being aware of how popular RPGs would be. He laughed at them as something lonely losers would play and would remain very niche. Meanwhile, the Super Nintendo was so popular in part precisely BECAUSE they had virtually every RPG from 1991-1996 released for their console, including the two really fucking big ones being EXCLUSIVE to the SNES - Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. If I were in charge, I would have made it imperative that the new console could handle any kind of RPG possible in those days. Nintendo didn't capitalize, Sony did, so their PS1 (and the PS2) gobbled up all the RPGs thereafter.
