Reasons Why Nintendo Is Better Than Microsoft & Sony
The Top Ten
They are much more fun to play than most of the Xbox and PS3 games, and also don't overhype the graphics. They also have a much nicer fan base, and an online service that isn't filled with immature children. - alecola90
YES! Thank you! Nintendo has all of the better game series! There's Metroid, Zelda, Mario, things like that! Xbox just has little games, that are violent most of the time. So for the win, Nintendo!
Xbox and PS3 games are mostly shooters and violent. Mario, Zelda and Pokemon are much more fun to play than those shooters!
Bayonetta is the best game ever. - NeinwottV 60 Comments
Move, Kinect, Smart Glass, Cross Play; Need I say more? Nintendo continues to innovate, while Microsoft and Sony obviously do not.
This is SO very true with evidence like PS Move controlling very similarly to the Wii's motion based systems & even Microsoft bashing Nintendo on "motion play gimmicks" AND THEN releasing the Kinnect MOTION PLAY ACCESSORY! There's a saying in the gaming industry; "Nintendo innovates, others imitate" & that continues to be true to this day.
That's true. Back when the Nintendo Entertainment System was popular, there was an accessorie called the Power Glove. It was very innovative, and it brought motion control gaming. Unfortunately, it was a flop. Years later, Nintendo brought back motion control gaming with the Nintendo Wii. It was so innovative, Sony & Microsoft decided to steal Nintendo's ideas & create PlayStation Move for the PlayStation Move, and Xbox Kinect for the Xbox 360 & Xbox One. What a bunch of copycats!
The playstation move is a wii rip off and it looks like the size of my ass. die playstation! die playstation!V 23 Comments
Do I have to say more
That says it all! :D
He created The Legend of Zelda series which is the best video game series of all time! Also, Link is the coolest character ever!

The people at Nintendo are innovators. They set into motion most of a consoles characteristics today, and they break out of what is normal, to instead what is original, and creative. Things that other companies can only try to mimic. For example, the standard shoulder buttons on most modern controllers originated from the SNES controller, and the Wii's motion controls were so popular, Sony tried to copy them with the PS Move. Sometimes this creativity will succeed, and other times, a new idea will get shunned. But that doesn't change the fact that they aren't afraid to break the boundaries, and make not just a standard console, but an innovative one that will shape the future of gaming.
I agree. Sony might have have Call of Duty at their side but Nintendo has more color and they have really good taste in games. Period
Nintendo innovates, Sony and Microsoft imitate.
They've invented, like, 5 genres (Including the FPS, so all you complaining that Nintendo doesn't make FPS, think again), they actually innovate, they have games that are more than realistic games, and they're even more popular most of the time, only lost with their n64 (barely) gamecube (Most people lost there too) and Wii u (Too close of a release to 3ds, which was immensely successful)V 4 Comments
I have seen like 500 different PS or Xbox fans troll on Nintendo (one guy even said "Who needs to play games in 3D? The Vita is way better", that was all he said, he gave no reason as to what made it better), and I have not seen 1 Nintendo fan troll on PS or Xbox.
This list has pretty has a lot of fans trolling on Sony and Microsoft. - Drawbox
When you're a Kid you play Nintendo. When you're a dumb teen you play Xbox and PlayStation, and then college onwards you realise you were an idiot to ever shun the greatest gaming company of all time.
While it is true that Nintendo is aimed at a family audience... that actually is part of the reason that the maturity of the audience far surpasses its competitors, even regarding the fact that there are far younger players on Nintendo platforms. A younger gamer doesn't get a Nintendo console for the same reason their friends may get the PlayStation or Xbox. You don't get any playground cred for being a Splatoon pro, young society impresses the idea that games like Call of Duty are "real games", whereas Mario and whatnot are for "babies". A young game will get a Nintendo console solely for the games, and not to bolster a pointless cycle of misconception and unseasoned disregard. In a way, that is far more mature than stealing your mums credit card for PS+ and screaming childish profanities over the microphone.
They're not really that mature, some Nintendo fans will hate on sonic for no reason aside from the fact that they are a Nintendo fan - PsalmbodyV 16 Comments
Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of time may not be the best games ever like everybody says but they are amazing games that are as good as everybody says (just not the best. ) Yes, PlayStation has the best fifth generation video game, metal gear solid, but that and Final Fantasy VII are the only PlayStation 1 games that actually rival the Nintendo 64! - HeavyDonkeyKong
It would be epic if the Nintendo copyrighted 3d/2.5d games and joysticks - Harri666
This one I don't agree with as much because it didn't win its generation but it was a great and revolutionary console.
I guess so - VideoGamefan5V 9 Comments
There is an entire library of videogames that are available to you when you get your wii (sadly not yet for the wii or 3DS). But even so it annoys me that people don't realize the full potential of having a backlog of so many games on their Wii. From Mario Bros, Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Final Fantasy I, II, I, Megaman, and so on.
Nintendo has a very good line up of old retro classics.
Ps4 has PlayStation store, so does ps3, Xbox one (even though it sucks), can do it also - VideoGamefan5
Virtual Console prices are 5$ Emulator prices for PC and Android are $0 - YourWaifuSucks
After the crash Nintendo came out with the NES and rebuilt the gaming industry with great games
Nintendo is a hero
With out Nintendo gaming would be dead.
I am glad they did! - 123bernieV 2 Comments
PlayStation had the same controls and games since 1994. Xbox had the same controls since 2001. Plus Xbox copies off of Sony who also takes Nintendo's stuff like VR. If you could remember the Virtual Boy from 1995 even though it was poorly sold Nintendo had the first step to Virtual Reality. On a related note Nintendo is almost 130 years old and also the new Switch.
Nintendo is always coming up with new and interesting ideas for their consoles and games. For example, when everyone thought that motion gaming was the only way to go, Nintendo releases the Wii you gamepad. Whether it's successful or not, it is still a pretty good idea.
Xbox and PlayStation, on the other hand, are clearly running out of game and software ideas. Almost every new game released for the Xbox and PlayStation these days are the fourth or fifth sequels to FPS games from ten years ago, just with higher-resolution graphics, new guns, and more blood.
The negative guy. The title is the same. Not necessarily the game play
SEGA VR did Virtual Reality first (1991), SEGA did online and DLC first (SEGANET), SEGA did backlights first (Game Gear)...
You know what?
NOBODY CARES, so we shouldn't care about who did what first, not even for Nintendo. - 123bernie
Earthbound, Mario, Sonic, Rayman, Pikmin, Zelda. There will be no stopping in the list for exclusives in Nintendo.
It's not a fact. Nintendo has WAY more exclusives than MIcrapsoft and that's a fact, get over it Xbox fanboy
Really, Xbox fanboy? All Microsoft makes is FPS, racing, and sports.
Nintendo Exclusives are a lot better than SEXboxV 1 Comment
The Kirby series is so fun and awesome. This is one of those series like Mario, Zelda, Pikmin, etc. - XpizzamanXx
I love the kirby series
Kirby, it’s has hard parts, easy parts, but the TRUE ARENA! I could give a bet that the Sony people would say “ This is tough! I can’t shoot anything! “ And I would say “ beat this and you can have your ps3 back” and leave the room.
As opposed to gross shades of green or that indescribable bad vibe Playstation gives off.
Have fun is to have games Nintendo
Nintendo has nice colourful games that are fun to look at
This guy on YouTube bought his first Xbox one. The a button didn't work (the controller costed billions to research) and got it replaced and the new one got turned on and turned off instantly
I don't know about Sony, but Microsoft products have a tendency to not work right when purchased (that is including pc and Xbox). Nintendo products are built to last and just about every Nintendo product works properly on the first day with the rare exception (my DS doesn't have internet access, but it doesn't interfere with gameplay).
Can you play the Nintendo 3DS with the 3D effect on without glasses? YES! It's so amazing!
Xbox and PS are pretty much nothing but first-person shooters. Sure, Nintendo is mostly just platformers, but the experience when platforming varies from game to game way more often than in FPSes.
Ugh, THANK YOU. All you see on the Xbox and PlayStation nowadays are Racing, Sports and FPS. On Nintendo systems, you get Platformers, RPGs, Racing, Sports, Puzzle and practically every genre of games. (except for maybe FPS, but who cares? )
Wait but Metroid Prime was a first person shooter and it's made by Nintendo. - recaller
Yeah actually very good points
Nintendo just might purchase part of Steam - Kid_ethinederlandV 10 Comments
So true! All that they do are copy ninendo consoles and just focus more on graphics than games!
Their fans are too LOL. Looking at them, they need the Wii!
Sony only made 1 first-party game
sony: straight up copy of the wii
nintendo" super smash bros
sony: super smash bros but with playstation characters
nintendo: mario kart:
sony: mario cart, but with little big planet characters
nintendo: wii u and 3ds
sony: ps vita
Yeah sony, you sure have great innovation
Super Smash Bros. isn't super violent (although it is a fighting game) and you don't kill humans (unlike Call of Duty). Super Smash Bros. is a totally animated fighting game which makes it ideal for any gaming audience.
If you compare Super Smash Bros. with any other fighting game from PlayStation and Xbox, you will find that none of them can beat the Super Smash Bros.
Sure there's amazing graphics, but the gameplay is what really matters.

If it didn't save the gaming industry then Xbox and Play Station wouldn't be here.
Nintendo has helped develop over hundreds of possibly thousands of games! While Microsoft & Sony haven't done Jack-Squat since 2001 (Microsoft) and 1995 (Sony).
Banjo Kazooie-Tooie, Bayonetta 2, Goldeneye, and Conker’s Bad Fur Day are great examples of this - Kid_ethinederland
Xbox and PS have better graphics, but Nintendo's graphics are fine and whose graphics are best only matters when you want to buy a multiplatform game. Xbox and PS have online, but I still don't get the big deal of it, plus, the Wii you has good online so now it doesn't really matter. Nintendo doesn't play DVDs or Blurays, but I still don't get why that ever even started. I'd much rather see DVD playing on a handheld console. Unlike these things Sony and Microsoft seem to think people want, Nintendo gives gamers something actually helpful, backwards compatibility. And yeah, Nintendo didn't start with backwards compatibility until the DS and Wii, and the Wii you doesn't play GameCube games, but at least they have backwards compatibility. Microsoft and Sony haven't done it at all, and I'd expect them to more. They have way more customers who had a console the generation before, and they're names change way less. Xbox, Xbox 360. PS2, PS3. GameCube, Wii. Which two consoles would you expect ...more
My Wii plays game cube games
Especially on Wiiu its graphics are excellent
This isn’t 100% true but Nintendo made it easy. - Kid_ethinederlandV 2 Comments
Yeah, Nintendo doesn' just sit around doing nothing'. The give us the games! - HeavyDonkeyKong
