Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and software company headquartered in Kyoto, Japan.
Nintendo not only saved the video game industry, but also revolutionized it. Nintendo has created the most well-known and beloved franchises in gaming history. Time and time again, Nintendo releases video game masterpieces that solidify themselves as timeless classics, destined to be enjoyed for decades to come. The amount of quality and refinement that goes into every Nintendo game promises fun and memorable experiences. Nintendo has been the biggest influence in my life, and made me who I am today, and there is no other video game company in existence that deserves to be #1 other than Nintendo.
When I was growing up, Nintendo was just a synonym for video game. Our parents would say "go play Nintendo" even if it was a Sega Genesis. I'm sorry, but nobody ever said "go watch Disney" knowing full well you're going to go watch Nickelodeon. Why is Nintendo the best? Dude, there's not even anyone close. I love Half-Life as much as the next guy, but do you know what I love more? Goldeneye. Straight Legendary.
All the other companies listed below are all great companies, but Nintendo is truly the most influential and important gaming company of all time. With all their franchises appealing to people of all ages and high quality video games. Most notable, Nintendo saved the gaming world from the Video Game Crash of 1983 by creating Mario, a masterpiece. - VintagePetRaptor
When it comes to iconic characters, legendary franchises, and consoles which shaped every aspect of gaming it's Nintendo and it isn't close. From the NES to the Wii, Nintendo shaped industry wide trends while the rest tried to keep up. Sure, they've been coasting on their legacy for a few years now, but the overall impact will be felt for decades, if not centuries.
Nintendo has made the most consistent line of gaming systems and games, from the NES to the WiiU. The majority of 'old school gamers' are Nintendo favourers over the other systems, but it's not only the systems that make this company great. They have a variety of games that allow people who are not 'real gamers' to have a video game break, they make the most (and best) video games for kids and should I even mention the kinds of games they make? They have my vote for number one
Modern Nintendo games and systems are like earthbound. Not popular at the time of release, not well advertised, and not a top seller. But as time goes on, it's the stuff that gets remembered and the stuff that we see as classics. No one is going to remember destiny.
Sure your favorite games were made by Sony or Microsoft but Nintendo is the reason they exist especially in the US. Furthermore, they made Ocarina of time, link to the past, windwaker, twilight princess, Mario Galaxy, Mario Galaxy 2, Mario 1,2, & 3, Mario World, Metroid primed games, Kirby games, the rest of the Zelda and Mario games, the rest of the Metroid games, Kirby games, star fox, Pokemon, yoshi games, donkey kong, do I really have to continue?
Nintendo is the best. Many great franchises, the most popular being Mario, Pokemon, and Zelda. Such great games. Ocarina of Time. Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2. Pokemon Emerald. I love Nintendo.
Nintendo has always been around, making great games, and keeping the game industry on the right track! They have the best game franchises like Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario Bros. , The Legend of Zelda, Metroid Prime, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros... Etc.
I don't even know what Valve is. Nintendo should be #1, cause no one, not even Sony or whatever Valve is can make games like Nintendo. Mario: best series ever Zelda: Awesome Kirby: Awesome and Really Fun Donkey Kong: Also Awesome and Fun Pokemon: Addicting
Nintendo has the best selling game. And has the best game of all time. And made the NES. Without Nintendo it wouldn't be able to save the crash in 1985. Plus 90 percent of my games are Nintendo! VOTE FOR THIS!
So, Valve is #1 & Nintendo is #2. Well, Valve & Nintendo has never even made a game together before, or have they (I don't know. ), but Nintendo as the second best video game developer & Valve at #1 is alright. I AM OKAY WITH IT!
Nintendo is awesome, unlike those other games like Call of Duty and Halo, Nintendo creates good story, good characters, good music, and good gameplay although I think Call of Duty has a better gameplay Nintendo is still good
Easily the best. Only Nintendo could make so many mistakes in the consoles race and still manage to stay afloat, and why is that? Their top notch 1st party games are enough to convince people to keep buying Nintendo products.
Nintendo is a great company with amazing series that have been loved for many years. Along with the game line ups they get. As well as making high rated games such as Zelda ocarina of time. Even after all these years they still make amazing games like fire emblem awakening, kid icarus uprising, and Mario 3D world. Nintendo has stayed true to the multiplayer culture.
Valve and Rockstar are great, but Nintendo is in their own league. Call them childish if you will, but there's no denying that the games they produce are works of art.
Nintendo, Naughty Dog, and VALVe are my top three... My vote for Nintendo. They have given me many of my favorite games. They were great for my childhood, and they still are great for me.
#1 hands down. No one can make video games quite like Nintendo. In fact, Nintendo is the reason that I love video games. They've made great franchises like Mario, Pokémon, Zelda, Kirby, Donkey Kong, and many others. These five have been my favorite, by the way. But really, Nintendo's great, and if you don't think so than you suck.
There's just no comparing Nintendo to any other developer. Whether you like it or not Nintendo has made more legendary/influential titles than every other company combined
I can't believe that Nintendo is all the way down here! Nintendo basically molded how video games are like today! Valve is still pretty good through.
My favorite game company has been her for all my life and I never even get to play my Xbox because of these creative and using imagination rather than other companies
For me it's between Nintendo & Rockstar!
But do I really gotta explain why Nintendo is the best? - Curti2594
Does Nintendo not count after shaping the gaming industry with some of the most memorable characters and games in gaming history?
Super mario the legend of zelda pokemon and all of them smash bros this is the best game developers probably because I'm a fanboy
They bought back gaming in 1983 and created the most iconic video game characters to ever exist and bring a lot of innovation to the board I love there games.
