Most Overrated Gaming Consoles


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Nintendo Switch

If u want to play nintendo first party games or just ports of last gen games its great

It has no games

Good, but overrated. - shawnmccaul22

22 Magnavox Odyssey

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. - booklover1

Come on people. It was 1972, what did you expect? 16k crysis ultra setting 120 fps?

24 Colecovision

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

25 Atari 2600

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. - booklover1

26 Dreamcast

I don't see why this console was ahead of it's time just because it was the first system to go online.

Except the Dreamcast wasn't the first online capable gaming console. - GamingDude888

Why is this on the list? If anything it's underrated.

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

27 Virtual Boy

How is this overrated when nobody likes it?

I thought it was one of the forgotten consoles like that one with Hotel Mario.

This is underrated you ididot

28 Ouya

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.

29 Commodore 64
30 Redrivers13

What the heck is a redriver?

31 New Nintendo 3DS

Same as 3ds. One pro is that it has a NFC reader built in, so you can use amiibo figures.

32 PlayStation 4 Pro

I have Xbox One and I haven't use it since this game to the house, Heavy Rain, Until Dawn, Beyond Two are just way better looking than Xone ones, can't wait to get my hands to Detroit Become Human

33 Tiger R-Zone

A poorly-disguised bootleg of a poorly-disguised bootleg

34 Nuon

Just Kidding But It Still Sucks

35 Nintendo DS Lite
