Nintendo is undeniably the biggest name in the gaming industry, a household name everyone grows up with. They’ve been here forever, being the oldest and still active video game company in the world. From the Game Boy, Game Cube, DS, and Switch, we have seen Nintendo evolve to what it is today — a gaming giant that continues to be a trailblazer in its own right.

In this episode of GZ Chop Shop, we talk about how Nintendo pulled a Microsoft as it closed down its Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShops, and what it means for us gamers. We also talk about live service gaming and how much gamers actually spend on expansion packs and game passes, which arguably makes a whole lot of difference in the gaming experience.
