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

I agree 100%. For a system that's charging their using to play online, it's an absolute joke. No dedicated voice-chat/party-chat (without that stupid app), friend-codes, and locking backup saves behind a paywall is laughable. If Microsoft or Sony pulled this off, they would be heavily criticized and laughed at. But Nintendo somehow gets an exemption. - Theoman2211

2 Nintendo Wii

Nope - DCfnaf

3 Nintendo 64

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

It's crappy and never got hate

4 Nintendo DSi
5 Nintendo 3DS


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.

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

Waste of time and money why buy this when you could just simply turn off the 3d switch on the 3DS - christangrant

8 GameCube

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

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
