To nintendo video game systems are toys and their customers are children. I've heard from people who have worked on games for them, they definitely take this approach to everything. The question is always "Is it too complicated for them" or for hardware "will they break it?"
There's absolutely nothing wrong with that, either. If people find their system or their games unacceptable for whatever they decide their level of difficulty is, there's other platforms available.
The real question is why does the original poster think they all
have to be hardcore? Games that have been around for centuries if not millenia
-- and will continue to be popular long after everything currently on the market has been long, long forgotten -- aren't even remotely difficult to play.
Hard != Good.
