Top Ten Reasons to Hate Nintendo

I cannot believe that Nintendo is even likable by even one person AT ALL! Nintendo is utter trash!

The Top Ten

1 Childish Games

Whoever made this list let me tell you something. You suck.

He wouldn't have video games if it weren't for Nintendo. And he says they suck? Screw him definitely. - Trenchpit777

First off, having no blood and having an E rating does NOT make a game childish and just for kids. Secondly, I thought Disney was for kids! People don't hate Disney for being "for kids" so why are people hating Nintendo for being "For kids"? - HeavyDonkeyKong

Are you kidding me?! They are not childish they are fun well Mario is fun, Batman: The Video Game is addicting. Some Call of Duty Games suck

Define childish - ParkerFang

2 Poor Graphics

Because they care about how fun the game is, rather than how many pixels are on the screen! - Harri666

Games are not about the graphics. you don't just look at a screen shot and say 'THAT IS THE BEST GAME IN THE WORLD! ' Even if it's looks pretty. Nintendo has been always about the gameplay. And if you STILL think graphics first, the Wii U games has been stunningly amazing. BUT as I said, it's all about the gameplay.

Well if the most popular games have the best graphics, then that's what people expect from games made in present and future times. Lots of good games have crap graphics, but they're ancient. This is a sign of laziness. Looks sell more than quality in this day in age. The most important thing is to at least TRY to make the games look interesting.

Um.. Excuse me... You can't judge the game because of graphics. It's about the gameplay. And if you have seen some of Nintendo's new games like some on the Wii U, then you wouldn't be even saying this. They have some good graphics! And even if Nintendo DIDN'T have these graphics, it wouldn't matter because it's about the gameplay.

Yeah. She doesn't deserve to be in Mario Kart, but I can think of 100 more reasons to hate PlayStation that are worse than this - Pizzaboy456

But there already is a baby peach...

Meh, yeah.

5 Sonic Boom games

Since Nintendo had the least to do with this, please take this off the list. Nintendo can probably buy SEGA, as it is the The Walt Disney Company of video games (after all, both companies are gigantic enough to have a slew of painfully underrated entries). Also, check out the porn pics of Amy Rose (Sonic Boom) without fur such as DexterCockburn's pictures of Amy Rose and Coco Bandicoot being gay. My top favorite Nintendo game is Kirby & the Amazing Mirror, which will dominate many of my lists, like my top hated video Nintendo game which is Mario's Early Years. - The Ultimate Daredevil

Sonic is Sega. I'm sorry, but you can say Nintendo is bad for Sega's issues

Sonic is Sega. Sorry, dude.

6 Boring Gameplay

Boring... Gameplay? So your telling me that Metroid, Pokemon and Zelda have boring gameplay?

Your seriously getting a FALCO PUNCH

Okay. Somebody Needs To Teach This Stupid Call of Duty Fanboy A Lesson.

Call of Duty is also boring. No. Call of Duty is SO boring, it makes Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing, Sonic's Schoolhouse and Dalmatians 3 blush.

8 The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda (original) gets a 7/10 (Good) score.

The Legend of Zelda (T.V. series) gets a 2.5/10 (Painful to Bad) score.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past gets a 7/10 (Good) score.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening gets a 6.5/10 (Okay to Good) score.

Megatron 939 go to hell you Call of Duty fan

Can't people just like or dislike things as they please, Jesus, ya'll are toxic, I thought that the Nintendo community was supposed to be friendly, also, why do so many Nintendo fanboys hate people that enjoy games like gears or Call of Duty? I personally don't hate Nintendo themselves but I do hate a considerable amount of their fan base, Nintendo is far from perfect however, I will say that many of the reasons that people do hate Nintendo are ridiculous, "The Legend of Zelda" being one of the worst that I have ever heard, I can understand if people don't find enjoyment within someone else's favorite game, but that doesn't mean that it sucks

Not just zelda, but many of their games are repetitive, can we please get rid of that stupid green shirt
they should call it legend of the green shirt dude...
I also don't like the satanic path they went down with pokemon and they also saved the satanic bayonetta series. nothing screams family friendly like a angel murdering witch who strips naked with every spell she casts... I am so done with Nintendo..

9 Super Mario Bros.

Well Megatron939... Call of Duty would not exist if this series did not exist, SO HA! - Pastakirby7

There is a possibly that Sega would have save the game industry. Just saying - Chaotixhero

This game saved the video game industry, if this and the nes never existed then video gaming wouldn't exist - Harri666

You're just a Call of Duty fanboy. This is a classic, and you hate it with no reason at all. Go make a list on the best shooter franchises or something like that.

You're definitely right!

The person above me is replying to someone who said "Call of duty is a bad game" - 50

13 Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series

One reason to hate this series - the team/relations of Princess Peach, Princess Daisy, Amy Rose & Blaze the Cat. What?! I HATE BLAZE THE CAT & PRINCESS DAISY'S RIVALRY!

Those honestly suck... This is your only good point

There were some good titles in that series. Also, I’m pretty sure sega developed these anyway. - Omasunner

14 Unrealism

Really? Just really? How does a game being realistic make it fun? You are telling me that if I made a game simulating walking to work, it would be fun? What is your problem?

I can make an argument that Call of Duty isn't realistic either, you know. - SlimVeggie

So let me get this straight, your saying that Nintendo is bad because it unrealistic? Since when are video games supposed to be realistic? - nintendofan126

Call of Duty is about as unrealistic as it gets if you ask me - thunderstar1124

23 Wii

Some radio station had a contest called hold your Wee to get a Wii, and a lady held it until she died.

Stop talking about the women that died from that radio contest. You just blame Nintendo for a contest that station was fully responsible. It's like somebody shoots your friend and instead of blaming the killer, you blame the company that made the gun.

The only reasons to hate the wii is that it's underpowered and no game updates. And that's it everything else is good.

The Wii is way better then GayStation and Sexbox. - Luigibuscus

24 Earthbound

... Wow. Megatron is an idiot. He's probably never played an Earthbound game in his life ever. He probably just saw somebody talking about it and assumed: That game looks stupid. Also, how can you give EB64 a 7/10? IT DIDN'T EVEN COME OUT! Mother 3 is the best games ever by the way, I don't care what you say. It was emotional without being stupidly dramatic, it had very good gameplay, balanced difficulty, memorable characters, and it was hilarious... it's not even that 'kiddy' of a game as you complain. It's dark, people die and Porky's evil for the fun of it. He just makes monsters out of machines and living things, forcing you to kill things that were once good and have no choice but to attack under brainwashing. It's a lot darker than you think.

Mother (aka Earthbound Zero) gets a 7/10 (Good to Great) score.

Earthbound (aka Mother 2) gets a 7.5/10 (Good to Great) score.

The cancelled Earthbound 64 gets a 7.0 (Okay to Good) score.

Super Smash Bros. (the original) gets a 35/10 (Platinum) score.

Super Smash Bros. Melee gets a 6.5 (Okay to Good) score.

Mother 3 gets a 7.5/10 (Good) score.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl gets a 10/10 (Masterpiece) score.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS gets a 9.5/10 (Amazing to Masterpiece) score.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U gets a 10/10 (Masterpiece) score.

The main character of mother is more famous in smash then in mother

LMFAO! Why do you hate MOTHER so much? I'm 99% sure you just can't use Ness's recovery in Smash Bros. The graphics looked beautiful for the 90s, the dialogue is quirky, and gives you a reason to talk to everyone, the story was amazing, and it inspired the second best selling video game franchise of all time, Pokemon.

25 Mother 3

Can someone please, kill megatron. - TristGamer

Megatron, Mother 3 was a great game with a highly developed story. Are you literally mental? I know Nintendo has made some mistakes but Mother 3 was not a mistake

Megatron, are you on drugs or something?

Play a game with good graphics. Call of Duty has great realistic graphics. Grand Theft Auto does as well. TLOZ and Mario Galaxy are very colorful. Earthbound is just bland.

26 AM2R Copyright Strike

I hate the fact that our fans have passion for our games! The nerve of these people!

The problem isn't just that they took the game down.

It's also how good the game is; luckily, however, there are still many ways to download this game online. Seriously, if you're a Metroid fan, you owe it to yourself to experience this amazing remake.

(However, I'm not gonna lie; Super Metroid Z-Factor and Hyper Metroid were both way better to be perfectly honest) - xandermartin98

27 Nintendo and their fans can't take any criticism at all

They can't take criticism at all they seem to think that all you say against them is bull

That's because they don't deserve criticism. Most Sony and Microsoft fanatics blame Nintendo for their "childish" games, and their utterly wrong. They don't give an official reason as to why Sony and Microsoft are better then Nintendo besides saying things like, "Nintendo is childish", or, "No violence", or, "terrible graphics". Us Nintendo fans on the other hand, actually give good reasons as to why Nintendo is better then Sony and Microsoft. If you want the full reasons, look up on TheTopTens, "Top Ten Reasons Why Nintendo Is Better Then Sony And Microsoft". - Luigibuscus

Like everyone crying and screaming on this list

Not all of them but it applies to most fans:
Call of Duty fans: Nintendo is for babies
Nintendo fans: Screw anything that is not Nintendo. Nintendo is elite. Everything else is crap! EA is awful. Activision is awful. Microsoft and Sony are all awful! Screw every non-Nintendo game. Nintendo is god. Everything else is trash like Call of Duty.

When it comes to Nintendo's criticism:
Reviewer: This game isn't so good. It could have been better.
Nintendo: *takes down the video*

Don't believe me? Watch this Haedox's video of Nintendo: The Arrogance and Disespect of an Anti-Consumer Company - SelfDestruct

Yup, gotta love the irony on how it is okay to belittle PS and Xbox players, but pointing the flaws on Nintendo is a no-no.

i have been a fan of this company with their games variety, now it's a other story..

they make way too much handleds versions, the physical and digital games was on the same prize, lack of other franchises, ideas..
region lock..

i won't be convinced about the 3ds sales, from where I lived, I saw no one being interested about it, no like the Ds or Dsi.

many fans will deny their attitude, yet they do deserves critizes, and how Nintendo dislike youtubers, because of their copyrights.

the 3ds family is horrendeous, I could buy a 3dsxl, too bad, it's "too old" and everything would be removed..

i loved the GC, I had so many games that the 3ds lacks.

28 Princess Peach Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in more.

Princess Peach sucks (in general)! She is also reviewed favourably by critics! It's not fair! Princess Peach is cruel & actually gets kidnapped in order to betray people.

And Princess Peach is the most cowardly Nintendo character ever!

She is completely useless and does nothing at all! She hates everything!

Daisy is obviously the best.

PEECH sucks BUT DIZ LIZT sucks

29 Expensive

No worse than Sony and Microsoft people. Right now, Destiny is hovering around 60-70 dollars in Canada.

Nintendo games are pretty expensive comparing to others

Maybe because you spent all of your money on Call of Duty so you don't have enough money to buy the good stuff.

30 Nintendo Won't Allow Workers to Unionize

Solidarity! We support workers rights.

Thugs brutally put down an attempt to Strike.

We sure need to talk to Nintendo about Princess Peach being more major than Princess Daisy & her mother, Rosalina which is a very bad thing. She isn't important. In fact, she's spoiled! Peach shouldn't have t be the lost princess every single time!

What the HEK Is that

31 Birdo Birdo Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in more.

These reasons don't even make sense... Its like bad bait, except this kid is to stupid to realise and use it

She is the best character in the game. Nintendo clarified that she is a female and wants u to forgot what they said about her before. She is the one character everyone wants in smash and in Mario kart as well her own original game

Bird Oh lolololol


32 They still haven't ported Undertale onto the Wii U or 3DS

Why is this a reason, This is toby Fox's game. They need to do a huge amount of copyright work before even thinking about this... Plus It wouldn't work

Good, Undertale is a horrible game! And besides, neither consoles support Game Maker! - toptenzen

Toby Fox's problem, not Nintendo. - PaperMarioFan

They haven't ported it to Xbox one or ps4 yet either.

33 Horribly neglecting many of their game franchises

They neglected many of their franchises and give most the tokens to Mario.

F-Zero...Where are you?

34 Their arrogance with their innovations

Look where too much focus on innovation got you (aimed at Nintendo)! You had the decency to be able to compete with Sony and Microsoft until you were done with the Gamecube, which I will be brutally honest, was quite good. Now you're like "Innovation is everything! " uh no! The priority of a gaming console is to have a good library of games not switch up with innovation all the time! And now that you spent too much money on innovation for the Nintendo Switch, you didn't even have the budget to delay the launch until it was fixed! Sure, the Wii sold amazingly, but that was only because it was during the age of casual first-time gamers. Now that era has ended, you kept trying to innovate but failed hard with the Wii U. But I guess that didn't teach you anything, did it? Look at Sony and Microsoft. They are okay with the same format as before, because they know what has to be done to succeed, amazing game library and present-day graphics. Nintendo, you, on the other hand keep pretending ...more - SelfDestruct

Nintendo has always claimed themselves to be the industry as they innovated instead of improving and started rejecting third party developers. Granted no game company is without any arrogance but Nintendo takes it to extremes, all for the sake of innovating. - SelfDestruct

Yeah too much sarcasm in games ruins it too

I really like Nintendo, but they should realize that games is what makes consoles successful, not stupid gimmicks. This is why little to none 3rd parties support you after Sony wiped the floor on you with the PlayStation. The Nintendo 64 had cartridges, the GameCube looked like a lunchbox, the Wii was dumb luck, and the Wii U was a abomination. Let's see how the Switch goes.

35 Cheaply Made

36 Fire Emblem

Excuse me Mr. CLockIn, are you aware of the fact that Fire Emblem has actually been around since the 80s?

A bad attempt at an apology to everyone of the older demographic than kids who Nintendo insulted through kid-friendly games. And so, teenagers or other older people always repel themselves from Fire Emblem and go to other games with similar style and the same ESRB rating. - SelfDestruct

I like Fire Emblem.

41 Their most loyal fans are hypocrites

So they blame other game companies for putting in microtransactions in their games but at the same time, defend Nintendo's copyright strikes on free fan-made games for the necessity of money. Remember, microtransactions are optional and their games are beatable without them, so it's only there for business purposes. However, Nintendo's takedown of fan-made games is a stab in the back to the fans who made them, basically meaning the only way to play as Nintendo's characters is to buy their games. And remember, almost no other game company did those takedowns of free fan-made games dedicated to them. - SelfDestruct

So are their biggest haters. - thunderstar1124

50 Useless Wii U games

New Super Luigi U is almost the same thing as New Super Mario Bros. U

Wait are you calling Splatoon a useless video game or is it to child friendly to you

Wii U games really sucks in present times. Back in Mario Bros you this game is a great Wii U game a long with Nintendo Land. Games started to suck and useless. The old Wii is awesome and nostalgia

For the example
Mario Kart 8 - Missing characters and items.
Mario v Donkey Kong TS - Exactly the same game
Super Luigi you - super harder version of NSMBU

You really think the Wii is nostalgic, THE WII... How about the N.E.S. or S.N.E.S.? Those had some of the classic games that laid down the support for other companies. If you want to make the argument of how the N.E.S. had horrible games, comparing a video game from 20-30+ years ago to one now would be invalid.
