Top Ten Reasons Why Nintendo is Better Than Sega

The Top Ten
1 Nintendo owns some of the best selling video game franchises

Besides Super Mario series, Nintendo made The Legend of Zelda series, Pokemon series, Super Smash Bros Series, Metroid Series, Starfox series, Donkey Kong Series, Kirby Series and so many others. What of relevant did Sega make besides Sonic?

Yeah but there are good games on any console and not because they are not well known does not mean they are bad. I have never played a Sega game in my life and I understand this.

Nintendo is the best. We bought Sega because we are better. No one is better than Nintendo. Not even Sega.

Nintendo absolutely has the best first party software of and video game company. No doubt about it.

2 Nintendo has better consoles

Yes! Nintendo puts great, original ideas into each of their consoles. Xbox has no original ideas. PS had a couple, like dual analog, but Nintendo is the king of innovation.

Nintendo has great consoles! Sega had some good consoles to, don't get me wrong...

Keyson, its about why Nintendo is better than Sega, not why PlayStation is better than Nintendo.

This doesn't matter, PlayStation is clearly better than both

3 Nintendo has better characters

Soo many good characters: Mario, Peach, Luigi, Bowser, Toad, Link, Zelda, Ganondorf and Kirby are to name just a few. I know loads of Nintendo characters, I don’t know many Sega characters, Sonic, Amy Rose, Tails, Dr. Eggman, Ryo.

Because of one character, Nintendo had an idea of creating a whole bunch of different characters and because of that, I have a whole bunch of favorite characters and my favorite is Rosalina!

Not true! Kirby, pikachu and donkey dong are the only Nintendo characters I like! Sonic, Knuckles, Shadow, Silver, Amy, Blaze, Aiai, Meemee, Nights, Amigo and Alex kidd are only a couple SEGA people I like!

That is true! Mario has better games, better characters, better story, better everything! Sure sonic is very fast, but that does not compare to marios stregnth, and agility. Mario defentily wins

4 Nintendo is a better company

"Reasons why Nintendo is better" Reason: "Nintendo is a better company"
Wow. And then he put a game on here as an reason. This list is terrible.

Nintendo was the best in the 80s but their are other companies that are beating Nintendo. Capcom, Marvel, and Rockstar Games. Even SEGA

Well Nintendo is better than SEGA but Nintendo did mess up the controls of virtual console of 3ds

"Nintendo is better than Sega because is better" What a stupid reason.

5 Nintendo has a better mascot

In my opinion, I think both mario and sonic are good equally, and before any of you reply to me that mario is better than sonic or sonic is better than mario, it is my opinion, and you can't change it. you can tell me your opinion but not make me change mine. persuade me that one of them is better all you want, you can't deny the fact that it's an opinion, and you can't change anybody's opinions at all.

This list is stupid. Just a Nintendo fan thinking Nintendo is the best. That was the old days. The Pokemon series is fine but some of Nintendo mascot are falling anyway

Chaotixhero, just stop defending sonic its stupid you're only making yourself more idotic but anyway this is so true Nintendo does have a better mascot than sega and plus Mario's been around longer Mario:1985 Sonic:1991 so...

Mario is the king of Video Games, while Sonic The Hedgehog sadly has been dragged through the mud over the years.

6 Mario saved the video game industry

I'm surprised Mario done such a task. That's why I like Nintendo a Lot! Go Mario!

Wow chaotix, your crazy for Sega and anti Nintendo, I think everyone knows this now.

With out mario videogames wouldn't probably exist any more

Mario saved the WORLD, of video games

7 Mario's games are always successful while Sega can make unfinished and ripped-off games

The Mario Kart series was very well and have sold over 100 million copies worldwide, while Sonic's racing games like Sonic R and All Stars Racing Transformed have barely edged 10 million. Sorry Sonic, looks like you're too slow now.

I agree! But still even the worst Sonic Game is better than the worst Mario Game.
Sonic '06>Hotel Mario

8 Nintendo's been around longer

To the idiot who wrote that Sega wouldn't exist without Nintendo. What's true is that Sonic wouldn't exist without Mario. Sega was originally an American company based in Hawaii, long before Nintendo went from selling card games to making video games. Sega was later bought by a Japanese man who ran the Japanese division and Sega as we know them today started business.

It actually does help idiot, if Nintendo was never created Sega would have never been created.

How does that mean it's better?

How does that help

9 Nintendo has better spin-off games

Okay fine shadow the hedgehog was pretty awful but this one of the only good reasons

So true they never did.

Luigis mansion and yosjis island say it all.

Mario RPGs > Mario Sports

10 Sega made insulting commercials towards Nintendo

You know that everyone was making commercials insulting each other at the time. Not just Sega. Nintendo made some like their Donkey Kong Country commercial where they insulted Sega's use of add-ons to try to make their Sega Genesis look more powerful. It was just common practice at the time. Even Atari was doing it with its Atari Jaguar commercial. Competion was really tense at the time and even though Sega was more famous for it they were not the only ones. So do not pretend Nintendo is some highly moral company competion is competition and competition gets ugly on all sides and this is coming from someone who would call themselves a Nintendo fan.

That's just called advertising m8. To make the competition look as bad as possible. All there is to it. They weren't "insulting" commercials they were just commercials made to hype Sega's consoles during the time.

Like seriously sega nintendo didn't make any commercials about you why sega and you probobly like donkey kong country 2 has sonic shoe's and earth worm jims gun with a sigh that said no hope but that was becuase a thing in the game where some thing happens and you get donkey kongs head with an arrow so.

That was when they were rivals, and plus there was one SNES where if you typed in Sonic as your name it would say "Not cool enough."

The Contenders
11 Nintendo has better experience at making games
12 Nintendo has sold more then Sega

Nintendo and Sega are both good companies. They're even working together for M&SATOG. Don't get me wrong, I love Nintendo, but I just don't think they deserve this amount of hate.

Dude, I'm pretty sure that there are more copies of every super smash bros then they are more people on this earth. nintendo is world wide!

20 million is laughed at by Nintendo. Wii Sports alone sold 82 million units.

The whole reason Wii Sports sold a lot is cause it came with the gosh dang Wii. -shadowswagger922

13 Sega doesn't make consoles anymore

What's this Wii U stuff? The console have great games but the design looks terrible. Look at the control design! Are they trying to fuse the PSP and the Wii and turn it into that? And why is Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U anyway? It would be better on the PS4. Just saying

It's a smart move anyway. The Wii U? What kind of console is that? Nintendo is going to kill the Wii U anyway. So that means that Nintendo know that this console suck. Sega made better console anyway

CH the Wii U is actually really fun, especially Splatoon, MK8, Super Mario Brothers U, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and Pikmin 3.

Truly, sega is dying they only make mobile games any more

14 Sega fans are annoying

Yeah, they really are, I'm a sega fan but most of the other segafans that I know are annoying!
Call of Duty fanboy s are still much more annoying in mt opinion though!

And Nintendo fans are never better. They insult people who prefer other companies than Nintendo.

Super Monkey Ball is much better than modern Sonic the Hedgehog, andso are other SEGA franchises.

My friend is a Sega gang and she is not annoying she is really cool

15 Sega would be dead without Sonic

If mr Mario died, Nintendo would be ok because they still have Zelda, Pokemon, Kirby, metroid and much more. If sonic died, sega would go bankrupt in about 5 seconds

If Mario died, Zelda could keep them on life support. Pokemon too. The point is that Nintendo is a lot more stable than Sega.

This is so true because Sega never really even tries on a game that doesn't have "Sonic" in it.

Nintendo would still be alive by Zelda and starfox and metroid

16 After Sega went down hill, they went begging to Nintendo

WRONG! Sega begged Nintendo to put Sonic in their consoles. That's a fact. Nintendo didn't beg for crap!

Nintendo begged SEGA to have sonic games on the DS and Wii! True! Look it up!

17 Nintendo makes smarter decisions

Mario is better than sonic

18 Nintendo has handheld consoles

that is true

19 Sonic's creator left him

Yeah. Sonia's creator left him, and I don't think he's making Sonic games anymore. He probably left Sega because he knew Sonic 2006 would be a big fail. Ouch. Sorry, Sonic.

20 Best selling game ever is owned by Nintendo

Actually tetris is not owned by nintendo or not fully anymore. Actually Sega did own Tetris for a bit, I'm pretty sure. Every game company under the sun owned Tetris or thought they did. Tetris's ownership rights is one of the most confusing rabbit holes in all of gaming. But right now at this moment it's mostly owned by the creator of Tetris and an old Nintendo employee he is friend's with.

Minecraft is now the best-selling game of all time and it isn't owned by Nintendo.

Nintendo's games sold 2 million and more too

21 Nintendo has more characters

Apparently that helps. And how do you know? Did you look up every Sega and Nintendo character? -shadowswagger922 who is mad at this list

They have many characters like Link, Mario, Kirby, etc.

How does that help?

Such as Kirby, Greninja and such...

22 Mario is still good

Even so, Mario was much better in the late 20th Century than it was in the 2010s as a whole.

Mario Bros is the best game character ever...

Sonic sucks since 2006

Mario for life

23 Nintendo has better character development
24 Nintendo is the creator of Mario
25 No insufferable characters
