SNES is the best Nitnendo home console for its time, nintendo has ever done.

While I don't think it had the best name of the bunch, (though it's name certainly isn't bad) I do agree that on the whole the SNES remains the single greatest console Nintendo has ever made. (Heck, in my book it's the single greatest console ever made by anyone)

Gamecube is a name that sounds good but the problem is that the design kind of has to be ridiculous to go along with the name.

I don't think the design of the cube itself was that bad, I think the issue was the controller with its colourful and weird-shaped buttons and the purple colour.

Gamecube. It's not as good as Playstation, but it's the best name Nintendo came up with. They should have kept the name: GC2, GC3, GC4.

The problem there is that the Gamecube was a failure, so consumers would've been generally disinclined to buy another product named after it, just like Switch would've been a much less appealing proposition if it was called the Wii U 2.

Gamecube and N64 are the coolest console names ever they named. The funny thing about the Wii, many people were calling GCN2 or GCNext aka codename Revolution.

During the Gamecube era, forum fans who KNEW how big of a Nintendo fan I was would taunt me with images like this!

 

I mean,



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Yeah, indeed. Too bad.

Well.. it's not Wii and N64 at least.

Nintendo or Super Nintendo were pretty bad ass back in the day.. I do like both Gamecube and Switch as well though...

I think age has really hurt the Super Nintendo name but back when it launched, that was the most amazing name in the history of games. With that said, Wii is, in my opinion, the best Nintendo home console name.

I'm caught between Wii and Switch.

The former was a huge gamble, but pure genius; it was inclusive, catchy, and brilliantly conjured up images of friends and family playing together and gaming becoming more of an accepted social activity.

The latter neatly encapsulates the system's core selling point and just sounds cool and nifty.

This thread got me thinking, Nintendo's consoles have some pretty great names. Simple, but right on point. The Gamecube is just that, a gaming cube. The DS is a dual screen system. The Wii with the slogan was quite genius if you ask me. Even the Switch now great, since you can switch between TV and portable. It's a thing I like that Nintendo does. There's a few 'eh' ones, like N64 and Wii, but great names overall. I'm going with the Wii name, since that felt like the most clever name for a console they've done.

I like Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64 and Switch, but never liked Gamecube, Wii and WiiU, they just sound weird.
