Top 10 Nintendo Games that Aged PoorlyNintendo 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
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.
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
None of the Virtual Boy games age well...
It's the virtual boy. That console sucks big time - LightningStrike
I forgot this game existed - B1ueNew
It’s a Virtual Boy game. Enough said. - 3DG20
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.
Fox, Ice climbers, Yeah - B1ueNew
Yoshi's model and design prooves it. - B1ueNew
Now I haven't played this game but it looks really fun to play even today. So it probs shouldn't be here. - B1ueNew
WAIT I shouldn't have included this one...
Is this based on the movie? - B1ueNew
Yeah... pretty self explanatory.
Maybe with texture models, but not gameplay.
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...
Completely forgettable and the gameplay is so lack luster.
It's basically Red/ Blue but with only one starter, and in my opinion hasn't aged well at all.
At least the sprites are better than the originals.
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.
The first two were way worse - darthvadern
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.
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
One of the worst Zelda main series games. - B1ueNew
Drifting sucks hard.
Way too hard and the AI is total BS. - egnomac
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...
You serious? - MrCoolC
What the hell is this? - BlueTelegraph
Not as much as the other items but worth mentioning.
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
Never played it so I can't judge it...
Terrible, truly terrible, no items, bland boards, bad minigames, bad graphics this game aged so terribly! - darthvadern
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.
EDIT, just realized this list is supposed to be about Nintendo games. Oh well - darthvadern
Not too good. - B1ueNew
This game sucked. - B1ueNew
Whoever put this game on this list instead of the Sonic Adventure duology (especially their ports) and LJN videos games (though they were infamous no matter ehich time) will age poorly with no good coming out of it.
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
