Top 10 Reasons Why Sega is Better Than Nintendo

If you are a Nintendo fan then this list is not for you. This is a warning to all Nintendo fans. If you put negative comments here because you are a Nintendo fan or etc., then you have lost your rights to judge me and this list. Enjoy.
The Top Ten
1 Sega made disc made games first

I know that the 32X sucked, but it proves that Sega made disc-based games before Nintendo. Those "things" that the SNES uses are old school now.

The N64 cartridges are like lumps of plastic. And what is wrong with the N64 controller? How on earth are you supposed to reach that middle button?

Sega made the next-generation console as a plugin for the Sega Genesis, and it was a Sega CD. Its system features are found in the PlayStation, a 32-bit console.

2 Sega has better consoles

Again, subjective. Let's look at power levels, though. The Master System and NES were tied in power because the Master System was a bit weaker in everything besides having better color.

Come to the 16-bit era, the Genesis tried to compete with the NES. That meant that when the SNES came out, it got crushed in everything besides speed, hence the Blast Processing commercial (which was false advertising).

But Sega then did a bunch of add-ons, which messed things up for the future, not only financially, but also for the Saturn.

The Saturn launched in late 1994 in Japan, and the PS1 shortly followed. Despite its 8 processors, it was still underpowered compared to the PS1 and more expensive. Plus, it was meant for sprite-based games, not the rising 3D games. Then the N64 came out a year and a half later. With 64 bits compared to 32 bits, it was the fastest in the land (partially due to using cartridges) and far less complicated than the Saturn. The Saturn won in space because of discs, but the 8 processors made development impractical. Sega also burned bridges with Camelot (Shining Force, later Golden Sun) and a smaller bridge with Treasure (Gunstar Heroes, later Sin & Punishment), which caused both to leave for Nintendo.

Dreamcast came out in late 1998. It was not a competitor to the PS1 or N64, nor the Xbox or Gamecube. The PS2 was its closest competition. It improved over the last generation, but it was also a mid-generation console. The problem was that the PS2 came out. It was more powerful and could play movies. Dreamcast started strong but sadly fell off after the PS2 came out. It was not after the 2-and-a-half-year-old console. It was trying to rebuild goodwill and get a share over the PS2.

Nintendo and Microsoft made their consoles. They beat the PS2 in power, but DVD functionality wasn't really a thing for Gamecube and was a complication for the Xbox.

3 Sega has better music

This is actually true. The music in all Sonic games, even '06, rocks.

All the games have great songs, vocal or otherwise.

That's true except for the Hyper Sonic theme.

4 Sega has better TV shows

The original cartoon, Sonic ATM, X, Boom, and that new Sonic show, vs. The original Mario Cartoon for 1 + 2, Zelda, Mario 3, World, Pokemon anime, Donkey Kong Country show, Kirby Right Back at Ya, and the F-Zero anime. Battle of mid until the 21st century, but Nintendo had more variety since the start.

Yeah. Sega's Sonic Boom was an awesome TV series, but I've stopped watching it.

That's mostly true unless you count Sonic X and Sonic Underground.

5 Sega doesn't ban fan made stuff the way Nintendo does

Again, only focusing on Sonic bias shows. Anyways, in more recent times, the Persona/Shin Megami YouTube takedowns. In the early 2010s, Sega taking down the Streets of Rage 2 remake was huge, and that's a blatant dodge on your end. They both take things down, and both are inconsistent.

There have been a ton of fan-made Nintendo games and videos that got banned because Nintendo is greedy, selfish, and doesn't care about their passionate fans. Sega never has taken down passion projects because they're better. If Sonic fans got their projects taken down, Sonic Mania and the Sonic movies would not exist. It just goes to show that Nintendo has already lost.

6 Sega does what Nintendon't!

Yeah, like not making you go through 8 different worlds to beat something or creating a character that makes everyone want to sell all the Nintendo games they have, like TOAD! Oh, and also Sonic has better cutscenes, harder levels, and actually has better animations and graphics.

Yes. The Sega franchise is so much better than Nintendo! The games are cooler, the graphics on the Genesis were so cool and new to the '90s era, and Sega games are just so much more fun to play!

I own every Nintendo console, yet I agree. Genesis >. SNES. Genesis >. Wii U. Genesis >. Life.

7 Sega worked with Capcom

Call it stupid all you want, but Sonic and Mega Man comics are better than Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games.

8 Sega is better with comics

Nintendo did manga, not really comics per se. I like both, although Metroid in particular gets very serious at some points. Now, my Sin & Punishment manga...

9 Sega has better characters

I'd say they're equal in this regard, but I hate both sides for this. You see, you all say how great your characters are, but if they aren't from Mario/Zelda/Kirby/Pokemon/Animal Crossing on the Nintendo side, and Sonic/Monkey Ball/Yakuza/Hatsune Miku on the Sega side, I doubt that besides the characters in Smash and Sega Kart, nobody on either side cares about their niche characters, such as myself.

Peach is always getting kidnapped and can barely defend herself.

Amy Rose is kidnapped once, has a giant hammer, and is one of the best fighters in the Sonic games.

10 Sega never lied about their hardware

Hey, I'm Saki Amamiya. As I am from Sin & Punishment, a Treasure series owned by Nintendo by a company that mainly worked for Sega during the Genesis days, I'm an unbiased source.

With that said, I have a couple of things to say. Yes, the original 3DS can run SNES and GBA games. But first off, as seen by GBA games, it *apparently* has issues with sound. Weird, but whatever. And second, they never promised anything about SNES games being on the original 3DS Virtual Console.

Anyways, Blast Processing.

The Contenders
11 Sega games are not as childish

I definitely agree with this. The Mario games are very family-friendly. Sonic, on the other hand, brings so much style and adventure!

Sega doesn't create lots of childish games (after Sonic and Knuckles), but they're awesome. I DON'T CARE!

Mario games always seem to be directed at younger children, but games like SA1 or SA2 take on a slightly darker vibe and are appealing to all ages. (We don't talk about 2005.)

12 Sega consoles have better controllers

I personally agree. One time, I was playing Ocarina of Time on the N64, and my thumb really started hurting after a while.

13 Sega was the first to have a game saving feature
14 Sega has faster gameplay

This is why they made Sonic. RIP Alex Kidd.

15 Sega worked with Platinum Games to create Bayonetta
16 Sega games have better plots

At least Sega is creative, but Nintendo just reuses the same plot but tries to hide it so we won't know. Two examples are Super Mario Galaxy and Hotel Mario. At least The Legend of Zelda and Kirby have different plots once in a while.

Mario: Oh no!
Me: Wait, wait, don't tell me... Bowser has kidnapped Peach?
Mario: Oh, wow, you must be a mind reader!

17 2nd millennium Sonic games are better than 2nd millennium Mario games

That's how you add up. All 2D Sonic games are better than Mario 2D games, but Mario has better 3D games than Sonic. So, no more Mario vs. Sonic crap. Even all of Sonic's Game Gear, Nintendo DS, 3DS, and PSP games are better. Almost all of Sonic's 2D games. Don't forget about Sonic Genesis and Sonic Chronicles.

P.S. This is true, and if you don't like it, then why are you playing Sonic games? Sonic Colors is great, Sonic Lost World is great too, and even Sonic Boom is good. So yeah, it is true. Sonic has better 2D games, and Mario has better 3D games. All true. What about Pac-Man, you say? He's been ripping them both off in all of his 3D games. So... What do you think?

18 Sega worked with Namco

Sega worked with both Namco and Capcom to create a game called Project X Zone. It looks pretty cool, but it's sad there was no Sonic or Pac-Man. However, Mega Man X is in the game.

19 Sega has better variety in gameplay

The action games on the Sega Genesis, particularly Sonic games, had seamless controls. They were much more immersive and intuitive than SNES games, in my opinion.

I love Mario, but Nintendo is just rehashing all their old games. Sonic always has fresh gameplay in every game.

Sega has made special games since 1992 (I think), and Sonic 2 is an example.

20 Sega has a larger variety of valuable franchises
21 Sega has better crossovers
22 Nintendo is red and Sega is blue. Blue is better than red

I 100% agree. Blue is better than red!

23 Sega has more unique characters
24 Sega isn’t money-hungry
25 Sega has better games

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has better zones and stages, like Death Egg Zone and Mystic Cave Zone. It has a better HUD, better backgrounds, better themes, and more.

Sega makes better sports games than Nintendo. Using old characters with Sonic characters is awesome!
