Top 10 Worst Nintendo Games

The Top Ten

1 Hotel Mario Hotel Mario

Although it is a terrible Mario game, it wasn't made by Nintendo, it was made on CDI

The graphics and voice are horrid

I honestly don't think this game is that bad, outside of cutscenes. - SonicFan4Life

I actually like it, due to the endless amount of memes it spawned.

2 Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon

How is Super Mario Strikers a bad game? - dylanowen

A game that Nintendo would not even want to mention and want you to play.

Did Nintendo even MAKE this game?

3 Mario's Early Years: Preschool Fun Mario's Early Years: Preschool Fun

Game grumps is the only thing that gave this game positives

This looks like it would suck very bad.

4 Metroid: Other M Metroid: Other M

Ok look it isn't the best Metroid game ever because personally Super Metroid is probably the best Metroid game, but it isn't terrible. The voice acting could use some work but when Samus isn't talking she looks like a bad ass. It also looks pretty good too. I would give it a fair try. Did we all forget when Samus ripped apart that one winged alien? That part was really awesome. I think we are all a little too upset over the voice acting. I know there is someone out there who could act like Samus perfectly but sadly this girl wasn't it. She was okay at best. Oh and by the way Federation force has Samus in it, and it's the one from the prime series, also I heard the game-play is fun so I think we are going to be okay. Too bad Federation Force wasn't shown properly though.

I was a Nintendo fan from the beginning but the lame story coupled with badly implemented Wii controls made this game the worst one in the whole franchise. That is until federation force. Either way the good metroid games stopped with prime 3.

Nintendo went really downhill with this game ( and this is coming from a diehard metroid fan )

5 bucks or lower. I have this, and I bought it new too, but it doesn't even work!

5 Paper Mario: Sticker Star Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Super bland by-the-numbers environments, a stripped down inventory based combat system that feels unrewarding, no story, and generic Mario characters make this a forgettable mess. To defenders of this game, what's so great about a game having less creativity than its predecessors?

Honestly this game isn't that bad. It's not the best game but it's a fun game. - Jake09

Too confusing I quit the game in world 3

I own this game, and it's actually not that bad. It has some upsides, like 3D, a storyline, and the sticker system is actually enjoy in my humble opinion.
However, it has downsides too. Quite a few of the puzzles are really hard to understand without a walkthrough, the battle system isn't the best, the way looking+controlling works makes parkour difficult, and the game doesn't really appeal for replaying.
Overall, this game shouldn't be close to where it is on this list, (this list is not good at all by the way), but shouldn't make any top 10's. It's just an average Mario game.

6 Wii Music Wii Music

I like this on so STOP - KriCket33554

I disagree that this was a bad game, it was rather entertaining, in fact. While the easy songs may have been a little less exiting than others, the Orchestra was a heck of a whole lot of fun.

How could this be top 1?! Oh my god...

7 Donkey Kong Jr. Math Donkey Kong Jr. Math

Seriously, this is fourth worst video game I've ever played in my entire life!

This thing sucks who plays math video games

I didn't care for it much, but it is still really hard to find for the NES. It was a terrible way to teach math, but overall, personally, I would probably put it at,at least, after Link: The faces of Evil on the list.

The bad game few people remember.

8 Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival

Not even Isabelle's adorable little face can convince me otherwise that this game is a waste of money that's not even fun.

Should be 1 just a crappy Mario party

Should be called "put amiibo on and take it off game"

I don't hate this game because it isn't animal crossing Wii U, I hate it because the game made me open up my amiibos :'( - Sanicball

11 Hey You, Pikachu! Hey You, Pikachu!

When I was a kid, I wanted this game so bad! I've never played it though. I regret wanting it now.

This should be remade in the 3DS eShop, but with actually good voice controls, and actually getting to control Pikachu a reasonable amount. I would buy it.

Lol what were they thinking with this one? - Pokemongamer

A remake would make this better, get good voice control Nintendo

15 Mario Clash Mario Clash

This game is AWESOME! Seriously, why hate this game? The graphics are awesome although this game is only black & red. I mean, come on! The Virtual Boy I great despite being a hard-to-use commercial failure.

Whoever put mother over this is gonna get a warlock punch to the face - PPPPPPINGAS

I've never heard of this game before.

It was a game on the virtual boy, a terrible game for a terrible system - Sanicball

16 Metroid Prime: Federation Force

It hasn't came out yet, but based on trailers, I don't think you can even play as Samus Aran. And its on the 3DS(I'm not a Nintendo hater). I can see the pixels on the screen. It's basically Metroid Prime Multiplayer. So I don't think it'll be good.

17 Mario Party: Island Tour Mario Party: Island Tour

Meh.I guess I was glad it removed the travel together function
