Just a quick question that I posed to a group of friends earlier. I want to gauge which one is considered to be Nintendo's least preferred or most hated console from the bunch. Then again, remember, it's not about a console that has failed in sales, or that whatever reason that doesn't apply to you became as such. The question is which one, to you, is your least liked or most hated Nintendo console, and if possible, why.

I'm going to start with mine, which is what surprisingly prompted the conversation in the first place:

The console I dislike the most from Nintendo is the Nintendo 64. There's two reasons for this: the first one, most if not basically all of its games have aged terribly. They're extremely awkward to play (Save for perhaps Donkey Kong 64, and a few others), their visuals are mostly unappealing, and some of them are simply not enjoyable anymore, because they've dated badly. Add to it that I found most of Gamecube's counterparts to be vastly superior (Smash Bros Melee over Smash Bros 64, for example), and there's basically nothing left in the library of the N64 that I would replay, and I'd be hard-pressed to find any games I didn't play and go through them at this point. The other reason is the controller: alien, strange and it always felt awkward in my hands.

So, what's your pick, and why?



Around the Network

The N64. The controller is horrible and it just has fewer games I like.



Why can't I click on Virtual Boy?

Edited the poll a bit.



Edit: opps! Ill write that again

 

Only had the Wii and Wii U. I've invested more time and buying games on the Wii U than on the Wii. Soooo which means I had less fun playing on the Wii compared to the Wii U. 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Around the Network

Probably Nintendo 64 because too many of its games have aged badly and the controller is not very intuitive compared with the rest. Still an amazing console for its time.



The GameCube. Didn't care for a lot of the first party games, just didn't click with me. Only thing that redeems it are Double Dash, Melee, and all the mainline RE's up to 4.



From Good to Bad (home console only)

- SNES
- Gamecube
- NES
- N64
- WiiU
- Wii

So yes I voted the Wii, first impression will put the switch between the N64 and the WiiU for me

Star Wars Rogue Squadron 2 was an awesome launch game.  Also, enjoyed the first two Super Monkey Balls (after those two I stopped buying games in the series).  Luigi's Mansion was nice but not everyone's cup of tea.  Burnout 2 was a pretty bad ass game on GC.  Animal Crossing got its western release on the GC which even had about 10 or so NES games that you could play).  Oh and it also had a game that was on PS2 called... Ikaruga.



Wii U.
