Top Ten Reasons Why Nintendo Sucks

The Top Ten

1 They intentionally create product scarcity

They like to Threaten people and take all of there money if they can.

One thing wrong with all of the top eleven points on this list
1. Product scarcity- Games these days aren't exactly easy to make, it takes time
2. Annoying Fanbase- Not a problem with Nintendo
3. Friend Codes- Better than paying to play online
4. Bad Consoles- What other home consoles can you take on plane trips
5. E-rated games- That's why people like them, everything is colorful and kid-friendly
6. Too much water in Pokemon- Do I even need to criticize this?
7. No Waluigi games- If you don't like Nintendo games don't complain about the games they DON'T make
8. Bad graphics- Nobody cares about graphics, that's why SM64 is still such a popular game
9. Too many Mario games- Forget about Pokemon, Zelda, Metroid, Kirby, Splatoon, Star Fox, I could go on for a while
10. No Grand Theft Auto- Ever heard of copyright? It means that would be illegal for them to do that
11. Have to stand up to play- Um no you don't - TheInsomniac

2. Annoying Fanbase- Not a problem with Nintendo

Seriously?! Nintendo fans are the most annoying, pretentious and obnoxious Fanbase I have ever seen. They worship this company and if someone criticizes any of their favorites Nintendo games, they get so defensive and start hammering you with a bunch "facts" and insults. The worst thing is, they think the only game developers to make good games are Nintendo (and sometimes if you're lucky, Capcom, Kojima, etc) and they completely crap all over other companies. They can't admit the many flaws in Nintendo's games. - RogerMcBaloney

If You Are Looking For An Nes Classic You Won't Be Able To Find One Because Scalpers Buy Em Up And Resell Them On Ebay For Lots Of Money (The Nes Classic Is Worth 60$ Scalpers Resell Them For Up To 1000$) - christangrant

Its funny how this is one of my most liked comments and yet its back when I used to Capitalize Every Word - christangrant

The whole scarcity thing is actually a genius move on Nintendo’s part

2 The fanbase is annoying

True Nintendo Fanboys are annoying but some of them are. Some of them actually admit that there are problems with Nintendo games

Guys its not a bad fanbase

Oh it is trust me! I've seen it first hand! You can't say anything bad about Nintendo or the smallest little criticism with them. Nintendo made them into zombies. - RogerMcBaloney

This fanbase sucks it is one of The worst fanbases ever I like the games and the company but man I really do hate the fanbase the fanbase is cancer.

Every fanbase is annoying - GleamingShadow

3 You have to use a friend code to meet players online

Yeah, this does suck - B1ueNew

Yeah Like In Xbox You Have To Pay To Play Online Like That's Better, (Sarcasm) - VideoGamefan5

You have to pay online in nintendo switch too though! And most Nintendo games online suck because of their extinct online - B1ueNew

PC master race is much more better than nintendog

It's a lot better than paying to be online!

4 Their consoles are nowhere near as good as they once were

UH... the nintendo switch is really good!

Though Nintendo consoles are still fun to play, there has been a massive decrease in the quality and longevity of their products. Just another example of a major company cutting corners to mass produce a product... Quality over quantity people!

Wrong, Even Though The Switch Looks Like Nintendo Trying Too Hard, Still Inaccurate - VideoGamefan5

Have you even played Super Mario Odyssey or Kirby Star Allies?

I think the guy who made this it's a hardcore game, and hardcore game don't likes Nintendo's consoles and controllers. - MTSPixel

5 Many of their games are rated E for everyone

Zelda: Twilight Princess and Breath Of The Wild are rated T for teen, though.

They want to appeal to all ages and allow everyone to play while still making good games - GleamingShadow

So? It is supposed to appeal to all ages! - Katildalover93

Splatoon and Zelda are for kids, but there more popular with adults and teens. And have you seen the Metroid series? Does that scream kid friendly to you? (No) Pokemon and Mario are pretty kidish though. But you must remember, E stands for Everyone, not kids. Simply put, most Nintendo games are for everyone.

6 Their Pokemon games have too much water

Seriously. All because of a IGN review. Wow. You're kidding. - Katildalover93

Excuse me what

Like there is already 2×1023 molecules of water in a teaspoon. Even the spoonful of water is too much water. come on

TOO MUCH WATER?! That's stupid! It's like saying this:
Minecraft: 7.8 too many cubes

7 They haven't given Waluigi his own game yet

Waluigi is stupid so what - CrypticMemory

One of the few things Nintendo is actually doing right. Can we please stop with this dead meme. You all know Waluigi is a terrible character. Stop it. - RobertWisdom

The only section on this list that I agree with.

Waluigi's taco stand - GleamingShadow

8 Everything gets taken down by Nintendo

I'm a complete Nintendo fan, and this is a really accurate issue with Nintendo.

This is the only thing I really hate about Nintendo. They absolutely despise fan games and will do everything to take them down, unlike SEGA who are the COMPLETE OPPOSITE, even hiring a fangame creator (Christian Whitehead).

Agreed, other problems with Nintendo aren't as bad as this one, should be higher.

That is the whole reason why I hate them.

9 Their consoles have terrible outdated graphics

They're not terrible per se, but they are behind compared to Microsoft and Sony. - TheGamingGuy

No, the graphics are good your thinking design - GleamingShadow

Nope that's wrong - GleamingShadow

Dude. Minecraft has bad graphics and it’s still a good game.

10 Many of their games are Mario-related

Zelda, splatoon, pokemon, arms, metroid, starfox, super smash bros, wii sports, tomadiachi life, miitopia, punch-out, animal crossing, kirby - GleamingShadow

Um their are a few Pokemon and third party developer games but whatever.

Everything is repetitive

If you don't like Mario, you're out of luck.


The Contenders

11 No Grand Theft Auto

There's no point of Nintendo making Grand Theft Auto games. - DumbFriesNub

So what? Grand Theft Auto sucks. - TheDelBel

So what? - Katildalover93

So? Sony doesn't have any Super Smash Bros games but does that make them suck? No not really.

12 Many games require you to stand up and use a Wii remote instead of a regular controller

Stop being so lazy! Play Wii Fit or just do something active! Well for at least 30 minutes a day! That reduces the risk of getting overweight or obese! - Katildalover93

That adds to the realizm of the game - GleamingShadow

I am a nintendo fan and I say skyward sword sucks because said reason

So you hate Nintendo for them actually using variety and trying something different? That's just plain pathetic.

13 They have the worst exclusives

Halo > Metroid
Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto > Legend of Zelda

This was wrote by a 5 year old, raging Call of Duty fanboy.

Yet Microsoft and Sony have better exclusives?

Metroid And GoldenEye 007 > Call Of Duty
Wii Sports > EA's Repetitive Rehashed Fifa And Madden
Super Mario Maker > Minecraft
Super Smash Bros > Overwatch
Earthbound > Undertale - VideoGamefan5

While that might be true, literally none of those games that are "worse" than Nintendo's games are exclusives - Drawbox

1 Comment
14 They keep discontinuing everything (WiiConnect24 Wii and Wii U)

Wii, Wii Shop Channel, DSi shop, Miiverse, Wii U...I could go on. - Katildalover93

Use RiiConnect24 if you want WiiConnect24 back

Good idea! I have actually heard about this before and wonder if it would actually work. - Katildalover93

15 They haven't made a new game of one of their more obscure or lesser known IPs for a long time

Splatoon and ARMS

Yes it's clear they make new every time with best old games... nothing new heros or somewhat

16 They discontinued the pixelmon mod for Minecraft

And why did you get a third party game - GleamingShadow

I was literally very good at that mod, only to find that Nintendo shut it down.

Who cares, Minecraft sucks - B1ueNew

They didn't..

17 Nintendo can't just make good open world games!

Of course they did! - Katildalover93

Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 and Super Mario Odyssey are open world. Kinda. - Flamer310

Breath. Of. The. Wild.

Breath of the wild is your only example?

18 They shut down important websites from where you could get roms and isos.

As with other forms of art, videogames should be preserved for the future generations!

19 The Mario female characters in Mario Kart 8 are Peach clones, clones of male characters, or non-mario characters.

*cough* Pink Gold Peach *cough* - Katildalover93

What about koopa troopa, shy guy, bowser's kids, or yoshi? - GleamingShadow

What about Female Villager?! She's adorable!

I had enough with this crappy "Yellow annoying irrelevant Peach" or "Space emo blue overrated Peach" - yunafreya648

20 The Nintendo Switch is too expensive

The console itself is not that expensive, but the accessories are too expensive. I can buy a Dualshock PS4 controller for the price of ONE Joy-Con. - TheGamingGuy

Says the guy who bought a $1000 cellphone

What about the Xbox one x? $500!

Its new - HiN

1 Comment
21 They are selling cardboard for 80+ dollars

By the way the price should be lower, why over 80 dollars? - Katildalover93

Cardboard? You mean Nintendo Labo? - Katildalover93

Sure it comes with a gimmick game but come on Nintendo!

so true

22 Their games are too easy now

How does that make them bad? It just matters that the games are fun, not challenging.

23 Bad online multiplayer

Nintendo: What are dedicated servers?
Me: WhAt ArE dEdIcAtEd SeRvErS?! - TheAwesomeBowser

Nintendo be like: what are dedicated servers? and now we have to pay for peer to peer connection. Absurd!

R.I.P free Nintendo online (the only place where free online was)

Mario kart is the only Nintendo game that has good online in my opinion - B1ueNew

24 Many of their games are Pokemon games

So? It's a popular franchise. - Katildalover93

Do we really need Call of Perverts 1, Call of Perverts 2, Call of OH GOD THAT'S A TANK, Call of a dead franchise, Call of a dead cash cow and finally Call of a overrated mediocre videogame franchsie people stop caring about since 2009?

Do we really need a Pokemon Red, Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Sun, Pokemon Moon, Pokemon Diamond, Pokemon Pearl, Pokemon X, Pokemon Y, Pokemon Poop, Pokemon Pee, Pokemon Penis, Pokemon Anus, Pokemon Blood, Pokemon Gore, Pokemon Porn, Pokemon Porn 2, Pokemon Omega Porn, and a Pokemon Omega Porn X 2?

Do We Really need Call Of Duty Porn, Call Of duty Idiots, Call Of Duty Idiots II, Call Of Duty: Got Outsold By Battlefield, Call Of Duty 99%, Call Of Duty Idiot$, Call Of Duty: Noobs, Call Of duty: Possum, Call Of duty 64, Call Of Duty U, Call Of Duty: Over The Road Shooting? - VideoGamefan5

25 Too many games

That's a horrible reason. If it were thru, then pretty much every successful company would be bad, including Sony and Microsoft.

That's a terrible reason - GleamingShadow

How is this a reason - Katildalover93

Nintendo is an old company (1881 I think) and started a video game business in 1978 with the Color Game T.V. and than born NES (With started supported Third Party Developers) and they First Party Games, and so Nintendo launch new consoles, new game are made.
Sony started video games in 1994, and Microsoft with Xbox (2001). - MTSPixel

26 Rest in peace virtual console.

But I thaught it sucked - GleamingShadow

RIP Wii Shop Channel
2006~2019 - Katildalover93

Probably only one of a tiny amount of reasons Nintendo is bad. - Ender_

I will always remember how close I was to legally owning Earthbound.

27 They ruined Star Fox

That's a lie - GleamingShadow

28 They make weaker consoles which holds back their amazing games

The reason for this is that they think of new, innovative consoles that are different to everything else at the cost of their console’s power. An Xbox and a PlayStation are basically the same console with controllers that have a slightly different controller.

Imagine how much better BOTW would look and run if the switch was more powerful.

Imagine how many new complex mechanics they could've added to AI, Environment, Bosses and Shrines, if the switch was more powerful.

Imagine how much larger the world could've been if the switch was more powerful.

29 They have no Friday the 13th the game!!

So what? - Katildalover93

Actually, they do for the NES, but was published by LJN - Gehenna

Ohhh booo hoo, hating on a company because you favorite game is not on a Nintendo console

30 Can't log in into mynintendo

It is your own fault that you forgotten the password or something. You should write your info down. If you got your info correct, try contacting the support. - Katildalover93

Lmao that's your fault, not Nintendo's. - TheGamingGuy

What the heck dude? - GleamingShadow

I can't do it because why PASSWORD and EMAIL ADDRESS incorrect! Because they hack my account so NINTENDO IS THE WORST COMPANY EVER!

31 Can't login anymore

Keep note of your passwords on your phone or something so you won't forget. - Katildalover93

Its your own fault if you forgot your password, not the company. - HiN

32 They don't offer refunds on any of your purchases.

I think that if someone buys a game and they don't like it they should have an option to refund the game. Yes if you buy a game on disk you'll probably have to sell it to some sucker on the street corner but I'm talking about the E-shop purchases...

Agree with this. - Flamer310

33 They hate YouTubers

Yup.. - Katildalover93

They striked my video, it was a cover on one of their songs... like why?

34 The games are too expensive

Super Mario Odyssey costs $140 where I live. What the hell?

They're almost twice the price of most PS4/XBONE games. - Tectal

35 They changed the mainline Pokemon games into Pokemon Go sequels
36 They didn't add Waluigi in Smash

Waluigi is trash anyways. - TheGamingGuy

He is in smash he is an assist trophy - GleamingShadow

WAH - GleamingShadow

37 The 8GB Wii U has less than 3GB of usable space

I recommend the 32 GB Deluxe Set. - Katildalover93

38 They have fewer 3rd party games

That is pretty much the sole reason why the Wii U failed. - TheGamingGuy

Why would you buy a Nintendo to play a 3rd party game?
especially when you already have an xbox or playstation? - GleamingShadow

Nintendo doent have games like assassins creed origins, Grand Theft Auto 5, watch dogs2 etc

They deleted most popular game on roblox for copyrighting
why can't roblox have pokemon games

39 Everything is too expensive
40 Newer Sonic games are bad

Yeah true, but I think Nintendo was in the minority in my opinion. Sega is the one who owns Sonic. - Katildalover93

SONIC IS MADE BY SEGA - GleamingShadow

Seriously, Nintendo is like Trying to Destroy SEGA. Nintendo is Cruel, Real Cruel. So I call Nintendo as: "The Despicable Video Game Tyrant". Guess I'll stick to PC Gaming. - WilsonAsmara

41 They ruined Paper Mario

Very true.

42 They ruined Mario party
43 You can build a gaming PC that does everything the Switch does for less
44 They shut down a student's HD remake of Super Mario 64

What is wrong with them?! Sega would never do that. Unless it's a virus.

45 Mario is being milked, while not inventing anything new since 1996

Each mario game has a little twist - GleamingShadow

Uhh, what about Mario Galaxy 2? - B1ueNew

46 Nintendo's graphics are terrible and not in 4K

Once again, who cares about the quality? Care about the fun you have! - Katildalover93

so? - GleamingShadow

47 The online service is awful and you have to pay for it

Sure, the switch's online is crap. But it's only $20 lol. - TheGamingGuy

You also have to pay for Xbox live


Yes. 20 USD a year. - Katildalover93

48 They made Peachette

Who is Peachette? - TheGamingGuy

Peach is already a girl - GleamingShadow

49 It's super small, smaller than an iPad

Don't know what you are describing, but I think you're talking about the Wii U Gamepad. The size is actually decent. - Katildalover93

50 Switch is overpriced

You can get a Xbox one a for the same price.
