Top 10 Nintendo Games that Aged Poorly

Nintendo games that over time, have really grown to show their age from either terrible gameplay, or not being as good as people remember them to be. I'll mostly be including games MADE by Nintendo, so the CDI games do NOT count. Also just so it's obvious I will ONLY be including Nintendo games for this list.

The Top Ten

1 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

This game didn't age poorly in my opinion... It was pretty good...
If anything the original Smash should be here instead - B1ueNew

Honestly, Brawl's roster was more unbalanced than Melee's. Melee Fox ain't got nothing on Meta Knight.
My favorite Smash game will still be Brawl's though. - Drawbox

I once tested it at a friend and it was ok, but nothing mind-blowing - darthvadern

Unpopular opinion but it didn't age well... and the story mode was kind of ridiculous. - CaptainMowzker

Well, of course the story mode is ridiculous - the whole concept of Smash itself is. - DapperPickle

I like Brawl's roster more than Ultimate's.

Fight me. - Drawbox

2 Mario Clash

It's the virtual boy. That console sucks big time - LightningStrike

None of the Virtual Boy games age well... - CaptainMowzker

I forgot this game existed - B1ueNew

I don’t really get this list. Most of these games (this one included) weren’t even good when they were new. - RalphBob

3 Top Gun

WAIT I shouldn't have included this one... - CaptainMowzker

Is this based on the movie? - B1ueNew

Yeah... pretty self explanatory. - CaptainMowzker

4 Pokemon Rumble Blast

I played it once when I had a Wii, and it wasn't impressive to say of the least. As a matter of fact it still isn't... - CaptainMowzker

5 Hey You Pikachu!

While being a bit ambitious with its microphone port, the game itself is honestly boring to look at, and in general gets very tedious very fast. - CaptainMowzker

6 Wrecking Crew

Completely forgettable and the gameplay is so lack luster. - CaptainMowzker

7 Super Mario 64
8 Mario Party 3

Might've been fun back in the day, but playing this now is so damn boring. It has to be the most uninteresting Mario Party game I've ever played. - CaptainMowzker

The first two were way worse - darthvadern

9 Goldeneye 007

Now I haven't played this game but it looks really fun to play even today. So it probs shouldn't be here. - B1ueNew

10 Gyromite

Having two controllers to play something that only one person should play, was a bad idea then and it's still a bad idea now. - CaptainMowzker

The Contenders

11 Pokémon Yellow

It's basically Red/ Blue but with only one starter, and in my opinion hasn't aged well at all. - CaptainMowzker

At least the sprites are better than the originals.

12 Turok - Dinosaur Hunter
13 Perfect Dark Perfect Dark
14 Rocket: Robot on Wheels
15 Space Station Silicon Valley
16 Mario Party 2

At least Mario Party 3 had decent boards, save files, Waluigi and a story mode, this game has none of those things! The costumes are fun but get aren't anything special! Also half of the minigames are taken fmo the original making Nintendo seem lazy - darthvadern

Awesome game! But it was released about 2 years before the N64 died out - LightningStrike

17 Starshot: Space Circus Fever
18 Mario Party 8

Not as much as the other items but worth mentioning. - CaptainMowzker

I dunno why people hate this one, it's pretty excellent, way better than mario parties released before it in my opinion - darthvadern

It was better than Mp9 or MP10 - B1ueNew

19 Super Smash Bros Wii U

It's my 2nd favorite game but when Ultimate comes out... This will become dust for others but not for me... - B1ueNew

Well it's not that old and in general hasn't aged as bad as Brawl has... - CaptainMowzker

You serious? - MrCoolC

20 Tonic Trouble
21 Super Smash Bros. Melee

Fox, Ice climbers, Yeah - B1ueNew

Yoshi's model and design prooves it. - B1ueNew

22 Super Mario Kart

Drifting sucks hard.

Way too hard and the AI is total BS. - egnomac

23 Buck Bumble
24 Mario Party

Never played it so I can't judge it... - CaptainMowzker

Terrible, truly terrible, no items, bland boards, bad minigames, bad graphics this game aged so terribly! - darthvadern

25 Gold Rush

As a fan of almost all Sierra video games, this one's not that good compared to other Sierra games, many of the puzzles are very hard and the voyage takes forever to get through, it's still good, but it hasn't aged that well compared to Quest For Glory or Space Quest - darthvadern

26 Earthbound Zero
27 Star Fox Assault

Not too good. - B1ueNew

28 The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure

One of the worst Zelda main series games. - B1ueNew

29 Pokemon Dash

This game sucked. - B1ueNew

30 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi Island
31 Kirby's Dream Land

Don't get me wrong, this game is okay, but it did NOT age well. The game gets really boring after a while. Thankfully Sakurai fixed it and made Kirby's Adventure and he can copy enemies now. - Drawbox

32 Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
33 Metroid (Nes)
34 Star Fox (Super Nes)
35 Super Smash Bros. 64
36 Metroid II: Return of Samus
