Nintendo’s MiiVerse is a central aspect to the Wii U console’s operation and it has not only changed how we interact with one another, but how we interact with our games. Modern gaming is taking full advantage of society’s social media obsession, finally eliminating the stereotype of the gamer as an isolated recluse.
What is most telling on Nintendo’s MiiVerse is how players vent their frustrations.
