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.

It had terrible consoles

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!

I actually know who the Nintendo characters are fore one, whereas I only know a few SEGA characters.

4 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.

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...

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

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

5 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.

6 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

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

Yep Nintendo is a better than Sega alright hands down!

7 Nintendo has better spin-off games

The riders games weren't so bad...

So true they never did.

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

8 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

Hotel Mario is no longer my most hated Mario game.
Hotel Mario > Mario Bros. (Atari 2600)

9 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

10 Nintendo has better quality
The Contenders
11 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.

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."

In one commercial, they say that Nintendo make teenagers helpless and Sega saved them.
Like what.

12 Nintendo makes better games
13 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.

Sonic Unleashed sold 20 million copies. That a lot

14 Sega doesn't make consoles anymore

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

15 Nintendo has better experience at making games
16 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.

That's true. They don't know how to act mature.

17 Nintendo worked with Rareware

Sega only made, one game with rare. Nintendo on the other hand, made tons of great games, with rare.

18 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 probably be dead without mario too.

19 Nintendo has handheld consoles
20 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.

21 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!

22 No insufferable characters
23 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?

24 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

25 Nintendo has better character development
