Most Overrated Nintendo Consoles


The Top Ten

1 Nintendo Switch

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

Can't really agree or disagree here honestly, Most games are Ported games sold at full price at 59.99 when you could get the original versions for 10-20$ depending if you want it new or pre owned, for example Donkey kong, Lego City, Resident evil, Captain Toad, and Skyrim, etc, there isn't really much in the nintendo library I mean breath of the wild was meant for The Wii U, you got kirby star allies, and Mario odyssey and a bland mario tennis game and upcoming smash bros, And the 3rd Party games, Don't get me started, There's no Assassin's Creed or Call of duty despite those being launch titles on The Wii U, I mean what else 3rd party is there other than Sonic? , you got the "Free" games like Fortnite and Warframe (Like if anyone remembers warframe now) Half of the 3rd party games we have are either free games or Ports to games you can real cheap on The PS3/PS4/Xbox 360 or Xbox One pre owned, we want far cry 5 and the new assassin's creed game!. Not 3rd party ports that everyone has ...more - B1ueNew

2 Nintendo Wii

It deserves its praise. - DaisyandRosalina

Nope - DCfnaf

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

3 Nintendo 64

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

Honestly this console was not THAT great and it's mainly liked for nostalgia. - DaisyandRosalina

It's crappy and never got hate

4 Nintendo DSi
5 Nintendo 3DS

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. - TheYoshiPyro64


6 Nintendo Entertainment System
7 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

It's both liked and hated - B1ueNew

8 GameCube

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

9 Nintendo Wii U

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

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

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

10 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

Well No One Likes This Poop - VideoGamefan5

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