Most Overrated Nintendo Consoles

The Top Ten Most Overrated Nintendo Consoles

Nintendo Switch

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

Yet another list where the poster doesn't understand what overrated means - Jackamalio

I think you need to look up the term overrated. I'm just saying. - cjWriter1997

You wait and see. The Nintendo Switch will be the best console. You laugh now but wait and see. - ShigeruMiyamoto

Okay, I'm officially reading all of your posts in a japanese voice. It's so much better... - mattstat716

Nintendo Wii

It deserves its praise. - DaisyandRosalina

Terrible library but a few really good games. - TriggerTrashKid

Nope - DCfnaf

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

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

It's overrated as HECK! I liked it, but the games haven't aged well (though there's still charm in them) and the controller was terrible. - TheDelBel

Honestly, this is the overall worst mainstream Nintendo console besides the original NES and Game Boy - xandermartin98

Nintendo 3DS

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

Getting worse. - TriggerTrashKid

Underrated. - DaisyandRosalina

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

Nintendo DSi
Nintendo Wii U

The Nintendo Wii U is considered the most underrated console of all time. - Rue

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

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

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

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

Nintendo 2DS

This is hated by many, but it still sucks. You can't close the screen so you'll definitely break it. - DCfnaf

Like the Virtual Boy and Wii Mini, this isn't overrated since not many people like the 2DS.

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

Barely anyone has this compared to the 3DS. - Rue

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


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

This isn't even nintendo - GleamingShadow

Nope - Minecraftisawesone

Wind Waker. - TriggerTrashKid

The Contenders

Nintendo Wii Mini

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

I haven't ever heard of it. - TriggerTrashKid

Well No One Likes This Poop - VideoGamefan5

Nintendo Game Boy Advance

Mother 3 and Metroid Fusion, enough said - xandermartin98

It's fine. I like Leaf Green - TriggerTrashKid

Good But Overrated - VideoGamefan5

It was ok, nothing gorgeous. - DaisyandRosalina

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

Nintendo Virtual Boy

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
