Best Nintendo Consolesdragon13304
The Top TenXW
How can you not say this is the greatest? Think about all of the classics: Super Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Donkey Kong 64, Star Fox 64, Kirby the Crystal Shards, and so many more. The graphics on the games were incredible for its day and the games had tight controls. This was truly Nintendo's golden era. Nintendo 64 is the greatest system of all time!
The system brought many of our beloved franchises (such as Mario, Star Fox, and Zelda) into the 3rd dimension so well, that it's hard to not say that it's greatest system Nintendo has made. It's innovation is in it's technology. All the games I mentioned above helped revolutionize gaming in some way. Heck, GoldenEye 007 made a footprint for franchises such as Halo and Call of Duty to follow. Truly a great console.
This console had so many good games! Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, the Mario Party Trilogy, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Star Fox 64, Super Smash Bros. , Banjo Kazooie, Goldeneye 007, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Kirby 64 and so much more! And that's just the amount of effort from TWO DEVELOPERS!
One word: Amazing. Nothing else needs to be said.V26 Comments
This has to be the best console Nintendo has ever made, even though it had bad sales people who did pick one up where lucky this small even portable system has an outstanding gaming library including metriod prime, Mario kart double dash, wind waker and resident evil 4. that's not it you could also buy the gameboy player which played all of your gameboy, gameboy colour and GBA. you also have access to games like Oot through the Zelda collection game! Even better it has the best crafted controller to date! It fits in the hand like it was part of your hand, the L and R button amazing and feel great and there is logic behind the controller the A button is biggest because you use it most etc. my list of good things go on... It has amazing graphics etc etc.. I think I have made my point you cannot live without this beast of a console
It's old but sweet! The best games on it are:
1. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, it's my favorite game ever!
2. Super Smash Bros. Melee
3. Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
5. Super Mario Sunshine
Awesome system! Other games to consider are Luigi's Mansion, Mario Kart: Double Dash, and Kirby's Air Ride!
Laugh out loud Melee beats Brawl any day. This console had the best controller in my opinion, the buttons were well placed, the analogue stick is the best and the L It had great games like Super Mario Sunshine, Mario Kart Double Dash, Mario Party 4 and 5, Kirby Air Ride, Wind Waker, Star Fox Adventures, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle and Heroes, F-Zero GX, Metroid Prime, Viewtiful Joe and a handful of others
Luigi's mansion is the best game ever on the best system ever.V36 Comments
Four words: super smash brothers brawl. Enough said.
This is all I have to say... 2 Nintendo systems in 1... = WORTH EVERY PENNY!

Super Smash Bros Brawl
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Super Mario Galaxy

This should be higher than the GameCube, because it's bout of them in one - cdxtremeV23 Comments
I like this console more than Nintendo 64 the controllers are really comfortable and there are many good games such as super Mario world killer instinct donkey kong country Zelda a link to the past and you never get bored with it
Greatest Nintendo Console of all time. Its not even debatable. look at the list of classics
Super Metroid, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country 1-3, A Link to the Past, F-Zero, Yoshi's Island, Starfox, Super Mario RPG, Super Mario Kart, Super Castlevania, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 3(6), Killer Instinct, Super Mario All Stars, Secrete of Mana, and the list goes on and on. People say the n64 but no way can it even compare
The american version of the snes is so ugly. The pal version looks much better. But this console still rules.
Best game console, bar none. - SuperNESBronyV10 Comments
8-bit gaming is awesome and I love the art style of NES games that is absolutely timeless. I love Nintendo up until they did the GameCube, but there's still a few great games like Twilight Princess and Mario Galaxy, but I'm still voting for the NES!
Can someone please tell me why the 3ds is above this? The NES is the best system ever!
I recently got a 3DS, and it's a pretty good thing. I like it more than I thought I would. Apparently, it is higher on the list because it has a lot of remakes of old games, though, haha. Yeah, that's sad. - Maplestrip
I don't own one but I do know this is better than hand held systems, which are only good for one thing. Pokemon. Nothing else. This is good for MULTIPLE games
Should Be Number 1 Because This Is The One That Started It All.V5 Comments
The 3DS not only improved glassless 3D on the screen also motion was detected. The circle pad was very smooth and it is just awesome you know.
The 3DS introduces many new features and also has amazing games. The fact you can play your regular DS games on here already proves its superiority in the gaming world. This is definitely a contender for best Nintendo system.
2 years ago I would have questioned what this was doing here, but it's turned into a great system with a FANTASTIC library of games, there are about 20-30 games I would strongly recommend you okay on this console.
Should be the bestV17 Comments
Epic. Should be higher up this list but people haven't realised that this is an extremely good console and the new Mario game is astonishing.
Way better than everything up there, plus it does not matter about the sale well kinda does but it matters about how the console plays and Wii u plays amazingly and has many great features that's why in my opinion it should be number one or at the least number 2
Remember my opinion
The ability to switch from the T.V. to the GamePad when someone wants to watch something. That's AWESOME.
Nintendo's first HD console. That's more awesome.
A social networking service devoted to games that's integrated in most of the games. That's even more awesome.
Love it, love it, the best ever!V37 Comments
Uh hello Mario Kart DS, Mario Bros DS?!
Cooking Mama series and Ace Attorney for the win!
The best Pokemon games were made for this system
Ah, the Ds, one of the best handhelds out there
A link to the past, one of the best Zelda games ever. Play all old gameboy games! Back lit! Great console!
A Link to the Past, Metroid Fusion, Mario World, Bros. 3, Final Fantasy, Pokémon Emerald, Sapphire, Pokémon Fire Red, Minish Cap, Zero Mission, Superstar Saga, Golden Sun, what else do you need?!V1 Comment
Best Pokemon games-red, blue, and yellow
This was my first portable gaming console. It was a great improvement from the Gameboy and Gameboy Color due to the backlight and closable screen (just to help hide it in the middle of the night). I spent all my time using this, bringing it to school to trade or battle Pokemon or just relaxing. During long trips or when I was just bored, the Gameboy Advance SP was always there for me.
I think the Gameboy Advance was a legendary console for the fact that it had some amazing games and had some great gameplay with long-lasting battery
This is not a Nintendo console. The GBA SP is part of the Game Boy Advance.
My 2nd Nintendo console (my mom had a nes) Great library of games!V2 Comments
O mer gerd this is number 13 I IS NUMBER 1!V2 Comments
Very cool console. Has a good design, GBA slot and long lasting battery.
Unfortunately, it's discontinued.
I like it, except it needs to play Gameboy games too. - funnyuser
It's a bigger 3Ds. It's more comfortable to play on in my opinion and got rid of that annoying green light on the 3Ds.
