Top Ten Reasons Why Nintendo Sucks

The Top Ten

1 They intentionally create product scarcity

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

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

They use this fake scarcity to make them appear more popular then they really are! They use this fake scarcity to drive up prices they are also suspected of scalping their own goods to drive up sales numbers!
5 free first party games for the wii at only $400 or less back when the wii was sold out and when it the page on e-bay was expanded to 100 results per page there was about almost a 1000 pages, but you could not find a single console in stores, and the 5 free first party games? they were the only games selling at $60 when the lock out ended.. The 5 first party games were the hottest selling games for the system.. Nintendo are scam artists who have been rigging the market..

Cough cough mostly every pokemon game for the Game boy and DS cough cough - B1ueNew

2 The fanbase is annoying

If You Like Microsoft The Fans Will Attack You And Say That Nintendo Should By Rare Back Or Microsoft Shouldn't Have Bought Rare When They Don't Realize Microsoft Paid Nintendo For Complete Control Of Rare - christangrant

Call Of Duty And Minecraft Have Them Too - VideoGamefan5

Name one video game fanbase that isn't?

Every fanbase is annoying - GleamingShadow

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

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

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

People in my country barely play on Nintendo consoles but having to pay to play online sucks more. - Flamer310

PC master race is much more better than nintendog

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

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? - TheYoshiPyro64

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

The "best" consoles they've made is the Wii, the NES, and the DS. However, There's almost noc reason to buy these consoles anymore, since they get replaced all the time! At least the Xbox One has been around since 2013 and still receives games! - Brazencoronet17

5 Many of their games are rated E for everyone

Do ratings really matter? No what matters is that the game is playable and enjoyable.

This list is pretty ridiculous. The creator should go work for IGN - Mcgillacuddy

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.

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

6 Their Pokemon games have too much water

IGN, Get Off This Site - VideoGamefan5

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

Too much water

LOL - GleamingShadow

7 They haven't given Waluigi his own game yet

We gave yoshi a trucking puzzle game about cookies and we can't even give waluigi a tetris clone?

Yeah man why can't waluigi just be all the games

Waluigi is our god. We must all bow down or suffer the consequences

Waluigi's taco stand - GleamingShadow

8 Their consoles have terrible outdated graphics

Graphics aren't the most important things about games, it's the gameplay. - Nirocart

Rather have lot's of fun with awesome gameplay and cartoony graphics than sit through boring cut scenes with no fundamental value whatsoever to the game's boring gameplay. - cjWriter1997

Gameplay is what matters most not graphics.

No, the graphics are good your thinking design - GleamingShadow

9 Many of their games are Mario-related

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.

star fox
kid icarus
wii sports
mii play
the game and watch - GleamingShadow

10 No Grand Theft Auto

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

If you like Grand Theft Auto, then Nintendo is not for you.

Presumably they've never heard of Chinatown Wars then. - Mrveteran

So what? Grand Theft Auto sucks. - TheDelBel

The Newcomers

? They Didn't Add Waluigi in Smash

He is in smash he is an assist trophy - GleamingShadow

WAH - GleamingShadow

The Contenders

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

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

So? At least we have some exercise instead of growing obese just sitting down. Don't be lazy.

They could at least let us play the old-fashioned way where you use a controller and sit down like you do now. If you have a wii, you have to stand up and use some remote, and it isn't as fun.

That adds to the realizm of the game - GleamingShadow

12 Everything gets taken down by Nintendo

They take down anything related to their games. "Fans who make games because they love us and take inspiration from us? Who cares? As long as it has Nintendo in it, we'll shut it down immediately! " Or "Let's plays of our games? Nah, we'll strike that too." Nothing is safe from the Nintendo copyright hammer.

This is the only good reason to dislike Nintendo. - 50

I think this is the biggest issue with them. - Nonpointed

13 They have the worst exclusives

Yet Microsoft and Sony have better exclusives?

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

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

Do we really need 924385931284359925 Mario games for the Wii U?

Call of Duty > Mario Party
Madden NFL 17 > Mario Sports
Grand Theft Auto > Mario Kart
Mortal Kombat > Super Smash Bros

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

Splatoon arms 1-2 switch - GleamingShadow

Splatoon and ARMS

wii sports - GleamingShadow

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

15 They discontinued the pixelmon mod for Minecraft

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

And why did you get a third party game - GleamingShadow

Who cares, Minecraft sucks - B1ueNew

They didn't..

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

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

64, Sunshine, and the Galaxies aren't open world. Odyssey is kind of open world. - Brazencoronet17

Breath. Of. The. Wild.

Breath of the wild is your only example?

17 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!

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

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

Rosalina and Daisy should be replaced by better female characters that aren't peach clones

What about Female Villager?! She's adorable!

Rosalina more like blue peach nowadays - WendyIsQueen

19 They keep discontinuing everything (WiiConnect24 Wii and Wii U)

Use RiiConnect24 if you want WiiConnect24 back

Why should hacking systems count? This list talks about official consoles. - Brazencoronet17

20 They are selling cardboard for 80+ dollars

Definitely. I mean, it looks cool for 5 minutes, but its aimed towards toddlers and will most likely end up in the trash or rotting at the back of your toy shelf. - Brazencoronet17

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

so true

21 The Nintendo Switch is too expensive

What about the Xbox one x? $500!

It doesn't worth it.

Its new - HiN

22 Their games are too easy now
23 Many of their games are Pokemon games

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 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 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


24 Rest in peace virtual console.

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

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

But I thaught it sucked - GleamingShadow

25 They ruined Star Fox

That's a lie - GleamingShadow

26 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.

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

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

28 Too many games

That's a terrible reason - GleamingShadow

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

1 first party game each month
that's too much too handle

How many? 9999999?

29 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

It's amazing how all of the 5 year old reasons are the top ten, and the actually good reasons are contendors. - Brazencoronet17

30 They hate YouTubers

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

YES! - Brazencoronet17

31 The games are too expensive

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

60 dollars for New Super Mario Bros Deluxe when the game is a mediocre addon to the Wii-U version?
No thanks. - Brazencoronet17

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

32 The 8GB Wii U has less than 3GB of usable space
33 Can't login anymore

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

34 They have fewer 3rd party games

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

35 Everything is too expensive
36 Newer Sonic games are bad

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

SONIC IS MADE BY SEGA - GleamingShadow

37 Bad online multiplayer

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

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

38 They ruined Paper Mario

Very true.

39 They ruined Mario party
40 Can't log in into mynintendo

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

What the heck dude? - GleamingShadow

41 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.

42 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

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

so? - GleamingShadow

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

You also have to pay for Xbox live


Definitely - Brazencoronet17

45 They changed the mainline Pokemon games into Pokemon Go sequels
46 They made Peachette

Peach is already a girl - GleamingShadow
