2 Wii U Wii U

Wii you is awesome. It just gives awesome games especially for we people who's parents won't let us play violent games! Who cares about the controller, it is only not good for gamers who play a lot! LONG LIVE Wii U, LONG LIVE NINTENDO!

At the end of the day, it is the library of games that matters the most to me. While the Wii U had a rough start in the games selection at first, things are looking far better now. I'll admit that each console has great exclusives; but Nintendo always innovates and has more exclusives to offer, thus securing it's winning place in this generations console wars. I do have some problems with Nintendo, but as long as their consoles are about decent games and couch co op is still embraced, Nintendo will always win for not losing sight of what good, fun gaming truly is.

Wii you should win the eight generation of video games

Wii U is good, but is dying quickly. Mostly because of how the Wii U is absolutely garbage in terms of 3rd party support and it has a Gamepad controller which has quite a lot of cons.

The Wii was successful regardless of annoying Call of Duty fanboys getting pissed at the 480p resolution and overall having slightly better specs than a Nintendo Gamecube.

What made the Wii sell was the Wii remote which brought such fun and diverse gameplay, yet the Wii U Gamepad is just bad with poor battery life, it's size making it a Fat Albert wannabe and finally, how Nintendo's main target audience, children are into Call of Duty and other mature stuff their stupid parents let them play, but the real scar Nintendo bears is from iPhones and Android phones and those are simple, but the Gamepad is not.

Basically, mobile devices are fast, quick and easy in terms of gaming and all of your work, photos and GAMES are in one little device that is actually thinner than a Gameboy ...more

4 Nintendo 3DS Nintendo 3DS

It has the most games out of every console basically. It also is the first Three-dimensional video game system that actually caught on.

It has so many games. I bet more than a thousand

It has WAY more games than the other consoles. It has sold the most too, but PS4 is likely going to overtake. Who knows, we will see.

Had a lot of 3DS games aimed at girls. - playstationfan66

PC isn't any generation as people can just upgrade as they please. But it is great if you know what your doing

10 Oculus Rift

The Contenders

11 Nintendo 3ds XL Nintendo 3ds XL
12 New Nintendo 3DS

This is what the 3DS should've have been... This 3DS now has a built-in CirclePad-Pro, and is much better for Smash Bros. 3DS. - noo7na7

Better 3d, faster, zr zl and another stick. Much cheaper, I can't wait for it to come out. - Harri666

13 Nivida Shield Nivida Shield
14 Ouya

Lol why is the Ouya on this list? It was okayish, but the game library was hit or miss. You had some great games and then a sea of bad games.

Hey where was 2ds cheaper than vita and 3ds good console you can do everything on it which you do on 3ds just not 3d

Guys. The 3D is reeeally bad on the 3ds(XL)
They're like non identical twins. I know, 2DSes are weak, but you have to take care of this sort of thing! And also, 3DSes get a creaky sound when you open and close them after a bit. - FennikenFan9
