Most Overrated Nintendo Consoles


The Top Ten

1 Nintendo Switch

Just because there is Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, and Smash Ultimate doesn't make it the best ever. - TriggerTrashKid

Come on guys! You cannot deny that this is overrated!

Oh wow. A tablet that splits into three pieces. A fixed Wii U with mediocre specs.

No call of duty, assassin creed, need for speed, mario and sonic at the olympic games, new donkey kong country, new mario kart, and ported resident evil games only, that sucks so far.

2 Nintendo Wii

Terrible library but a few really good games. - TriggerTrashKid

Too much shovelware and bad licensed games, But still great - B1ueNew

It deserves its praise. - DaisyandRosalina

Nope - DCfnaf

3 Nintendo 64

Of course, it is a great console... But people treat it as if it is the BEST console ever. Not really. There are new consoles that came out after the N64 that very much so improve on this console. - Marxcute19

Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64 are nothing against Super Mario Odyssey/Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe/Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled. - TriggerTrashKid

The games have aged just fine, and they are great - GleamingShadow


4 Nintendo 3DS

Getting worse. - TriggerTrashKid

Just a ds with a joystick, slightly more power, a crappy line-up of games that has like 3 decent games, and to top it all off there's a 3d gimmick that makes your eyes hurt

It's great but the new games are getting worse - B1ueNew

Underrated. - DaisyandRosalina

The last time I checked its sales, it sold about 72.53 million copies worldwide. Not underrated at all.

6 Nintendo Entertainment System

This console is so overrated. I get that some people grew up with certain consoles in certain times but the hardware isn't even that good.

Yeah. The controller suck. - TriggerTrashKid

wrong - GleamingShadow

7 Nintendo 2DS

So fat and not foldable. - TriggerTrashKid

Only popular for being really cheap and being 80 dollars like that's the price of 2 3ds games, 2 3ds games or a 3ds you can't have 3D - B1ueNew

It's both liked and hated - B1ueNew

Underrated. - DaisyandRosalina

8 Nintendo Wii U

It's fine. - TriggerTrashKid

Overhated, Don't know why everyone calls it a "failure" - B1ueNew

Hated but still overrated because most of the Nintendo fans think it's "underrated and great" even if it's one of the worst Nintendo consoles ever. - DaisyandRosalina

Yeah, you don't know what overrated means. - DCfnaf

9 GameCube

This isn't even nintendo - GleamingShadow

Wind Waker. - TriggerTrashKid

It is in my opinion, it was good but nothing revolutionary, yet all over the internet people defend this and say how original it is. - DaisyandRosalina

Nope - Minecraftisawesone

10 Super Nintendo Entertainment System

Come on... this is seen by many as the best console of all time, but does it really hold up to todays standards? The wiiu and switch are much better overall, and the games are far less limited.

This system doesn"t have hotel mario, or sonic. the controller sucks and the console looks dumb. super mario world is only decent and most of the games except zombie ate my neighbors is bad compared to the atari 7800. Entertainment more like Amatuer!

I absolutely hate this console

The Contenders

11 Nintendo Wii Mini

I haven't ever heard of it. - TriggerTrashKid

Basically the Wii version of a PS3/PS4 Slim but with no internet - B1ueNew

I never heard of this before. Surely that screams overrated! /sarcasm - Rue

Well there was no clear point of this console's release in the first place. I'm frankly sick of seeing all these 'overrated' lists polluting TheTopTens. - Entranced98

Finally, someone who said it. "Overrated" lists are just a lazy attempt of a list nowadays. - cjWriter1997

12 Nintendo Game Boy Advance Nintendo Game Boy Advance

It's fine. I like Leaf Green - TriggerTrashKid

It was ok, nothing gorgeous. - DaisyandRosalina

Mother 3 and Metroid Fusion, enough said - xandermartin98

Good But Overrated - VideoGamefan5

13 Nintendo Game & Watch

This is bad once you learn that mattel made the first handheld.

I Believe This Is Where People Take Nostalgia Too Far - VideoGamefan5

VERY overrated - Heyo_Simba

14 Nintendo Gameboy
15 Nintendo GameBoy Color
16 Nintendo Virtual Boy

Who like this - B1ueNew

Better question is why are VR's making a come back for? To remind use of the awful train wreck that was this pile of crap. - htoutlaws2012

Overrated Cause It Sucks, LOL - VideoGamefan5
