Most Overrated Gaming Consolesbooklover1

A fine console, but by Nintendo standards, an atrocity. If their other consoles weren't so underrated, the DS would not be so overrated- but in comparison, it just doesn't deserve to so massively outsell Nintendo's other, better consoles.V 1 Comment
It's just 2 lines on a screen. And you can move them anywhere.
Well, at least it inspired other people to make better consoles.
Sure it was the first, but it was completely pointless. - booklover1V 2 Comments
Why is this on the list? If anything it's underrated.
I don't see why this console was ahead of it's time just because it was the first system to go online.
This isn't overrated in anyway, the sales were good at the start but ps2 and gamecube crushed this poor thing. Will the wii you end up like this poor console?
Also, sega slightly helped with the original Xbox, so the dreamcasts successor is kinda the Xbox - Harri666
Compared to the Nintendo 64 and the PlayStation 2, it wasn't that good. - booklover1
The games have not aged well to be honest. The NES is almost as old and it has hold up way better.
People need to stop judging their opinions of the Atari 2600 based on "ET: The Extra-Terrestrial", "Custer's Revenge", and "Pac-Man". Among those games are classics such as "Adventure", "Yar's Revenge", "Pitfall! ", "Space Invaders", "Battlezone", "Combat", and "Asteroids". Sure, there were duds, such as "Donkey Kong" and "Burgertime", and the Intellivision and ColecoVision featured superior graphics and sound, but the Atari 2600 opened the doors to generations of high-quality video games.
So all you need to do is not buy those games and it's good. - Garfieldtop10s
The best selling game is known as one of the worst: Pac-Man.E. T was 5th. - booklover1V 1 Comment
It was between this and the Intellivision for #10, but since IGN called the Intellivision 14th best console while Colecovision was #12, so Colecovision is here. - booklover1
It was overhyped, not overrated
It was overrated until it came out
Not overrated but it's crap. People who've purchased this console hardly ever use it.
How is this overrated when nobody likes it?V 1 Comment
Same as 3ds. One pro is that it has a NFC reader built in, so you can use amiibo figures.
