Easily WiiU.

I thought they wouldn't come with something that would bore me more than Gamecube did, but WiiU did and then some. It's just not a good system. Just a handful of worthwhile games, even for a Nintendo enthousiast, and besides maybe Mario Kart (surprisingly) none that are really a step forward of that bring new and inspired things. There was no progress in WiiU. And then ofcourse the objective reasons; droughts, mediocre system with mediocre features. Now it will get even worse because practically everything is going to be ported to Switch, which basically makes WiiU a pointless, throwaway system nobody really needs. There was some potential, I thought so before release at least, but Nintendo dropped the ball hard on this one.

For the record:

N64 > SNES = NES >> Wii >> GC >> WiiU

N64 is the best, the whole 5th gen was the best, the whole last part of the '90s/first few years of the '00s were the Golden Age. Everything was a classic, too many new ideas to count. And yes, the N64 controller was also the best. Then I guess SNES, which had awesome games, but I probably like NES, because it has awesome games, just as much as SNES. Wii had plenty of cool stuff, new stuff with new ideas, and it got me back into console gaming so it's after the classic consoles. GC after Wii, a few good games, but not that many. System itself was solid, so it wins easily over WiiU, which has almost nothing going for it sadly.

It was hard to decide between Gamecube and Wii-U but Wii-U was even worse.



From good to bad:


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

The Wii's motion control gimmick and overall library makes me dislike it the most. I didn't like the cube either, but some of its games are really worth it.



The gamecube is the only console or handheld (other than virtual boy) that I don't know.

So by default - I choose the gamecube.

I am actually a big fan of the wii u. It doesn't have the iconic titles like SNES, but I like it a hell of a lot more than the 64.

You make it sound like Wii doesn't have any games that make it worth it.

Wii.

What I hate most about the Wii is the controls - but not so much necessarily their motion-based nature, rather just their atrocious production quality. It was the only Nintendo console I've seen where controllers just don't work properly sometimes, and can have serious issues without improper use. All of them were just horrible - be it the Wiimote, Nunchuk, Classic Controller or whatever else, they all sucked so much.

I'm also not the biggest Brawl fan and heavily disliked Mario Kart Wii. That goes a long way.

That said, when they wanted to do things right with it it came off awesome. It has some of my favorite games of all time, and said games would never be as good without the motion controls.

Not fo me. For you it may be a different story. It was the console from Nintendo that I played the least cause most of its games didn't appeal to me.  Even its Zelda is the worst of franchise/main series for me.

Gamecube and wii u

Same here. 

Everything else, minus the Virtual Boy, is arguably the best of its generation.



Wii U. Smallest number of games that I truly love, and no Metroid or exclusive Zelda game.



I wish I could have enjoyed the Wii a lot more than I did. I still enjoyed it but I played a lot more 360 I think.

That said, I still wonder if there were hidden gems I didn't play. I'm pretty sure there were, actually.
