Reasons Why Nintendo Is Better Than Microsoft & Sony

The Top Ten

1 Nintendo Games

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!

SO TRUE SPLATOON IS THE GREATEST SHOOTER EVER

2 Sony and Microsoft Continue to Copy Nintendo

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!

Who even made this list? It's just another Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft war. Also, if any of you had any sense, you'd realize that without Pac-man, Mario would never exist. Heck, Shigeru Miyamoto said that Pac man is his favorite video game character, and it inspired him to make Mario. So all of you dumb Nintendo fans, shut up. - Drawbox

3 Nintendo Has Shigeru Miyamoto

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!

Without nintendo there would be no consoles

4 Nintendo's Fans Are More Mature

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.

No.This is not true.The fans on this site whine and cry and rant on you if you say Sony is better or for having a opinion

5 Nintendo 64

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 - VideoGamefan5

6 They Are More Creative

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

So true! Mario + Zelda

I coudn't agree more! - XpizzamanXx

So true ps4 and all that is to realistic

7 Virtual Console

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

8 Nintendo Rebuilt the Gaming Industry

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.

YES

9 Nintendo has ideas to spare.

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

This makes sense. For those of you that grew up with the NES, and had a little thing called R.O.B. , you probably remember that he was only playable for two games. They were Gyromite, and Stack-Up. Wasn't R.O.B. pretty cool? Nintendo had to make him so people will forget about the video game crash of 1983, and people will finally stop thinking that all video games are garbage. Did you know R.O.B. appears in Mario Kart DS, and in Super Smash Bros. (Brawl, 3DS, and Wii U)?

10 Nintendo Has Great Exclusives

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

Nintendo Exclusives are a lot better than SEXbox

Really, Xbox fanboy? All Microsoft makes is FPS, racing, and sports.

The Contenders

11 The Kirby Series

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.

12 The Image is Way More Fun

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

13 Nintendo Makes Sure Their Consoles Work

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!

14 Way More Variety

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_ethinederland

15 Sony and Microsoft Are Lazy

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

It's true

16 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS

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.

17 Saved the Video Game Crash of 1982

If it didn't save the gaming industry then Xbox and Play Station wouldn't be here.

18 Nintendo helps develop games, while Microsoft & Sony leave it to their game developers.

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

19 Backwards Compatibility

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_ethinederland
