I don't really know how to explain it, but as someone that had tons of fun with the Wii, the Wii U just wasn't as fun. I think it's because it had less games and they took too much time to come out, and also because the concept itself wasn't that exciting anyways (We already had dual-screen gameplay on the DS). Other things like no GC games on the Virtual Console, poor Gamepad battery, pretty-but-slow interface, etc. also helped make it my least-favorite console.

the Wii. weak as shit compared to competition and annoying motion controls



So the only Nintendo Console that sold well in recent memory is also most hated. :|



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

The Wii is such an unpleasant console from my experience. It has been the most frustrating to use on my experience. Motion controls were awful, trying to get used to having the half of two controllers and the oversimplicity of everything.

I feel the same, there was more to do with the Wii, and more enjoyable experiances too.

Dont think your alone in thinking the way you do.

I've never owned a Nintendo home console so far (unfortunately), but for me Wii U is the worst by far, and I had that hunch even before we got to see how few games it got.



Nintendo 64. For pretty much all the reasons that were already said, there are a few games on the console that I still want to play like Goemon but other than that it doesn't interest me too much.

I stated already that it doesn't matter how good or terrible the console performed in sales. It's just their personal valoration. A company's biggest success might not be everyone's favourite thing, and people have stated plenty of reasons.



GBA, and it's not even close. That terrible screen was an indictment against all humankind. You could get a better picture by drawing on a brick with crayons. Sold it within 6 months of buying it. Never tried the GBA SP, but my understanding is that it kicked ass.

Off the top of my head I feel like Virtual Boy is the right answer but I've never played it, so....

...of the Nintendo consoles I've owned I'd have to say the Wii U. As a party system it's great, I put in tons of hours with my friends on it, but for an individual experience I've played on it the least of all. I'm just glad I only bought it new for $199 (Canadian) back in 2013 because it's not worth more for me.
