I just can't bring myself to say anything positive about the N64.  It was the console that ruined gaming for several decades and possibly forever.  We would have been much better off if the analogue stick and the games that came with it were never invented.  What a pile of garbage.

Yeah.

But, like, no.

Well, you're half right.



Wii U

Everyone wanting 3D Graphics despite those shoddy, eye-cancer inducing visuals and experimental button layouts are the reason I skipped that entire gen and played exclusively on PC after 1995, safe for a couple turns at Sega Rally on the neighbor's console.

I got both a PSOne and a N64 a good decade later, but got less than 10 games between those two

9 for each, not exactly one-sided @Jpcc86

I am VERY surprised. Thats good tho, the WiiU gets a lot of undeserved hate, I still prefer the N64 myself tho. But yeah, seems its gonna be closer than I thought.



I mean one's got the actual best explorable world in any RPG's from this generation, Xenoblade X, and the other got ...

Quest 64.
Should I go on ?

N64 is my favourite console of all time. WiiU was okay but its no N64.



Wii U anytime, anyday and with eyes closed

Curl, why you do this? This is tough as nails but I'll go with the Wii U.

The N64 had Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Banjo-Kazooie (& -Tooie), Turok 1&2, Extreme-G, F-Zero X, Waverace 64, Jet Force Gemini, Donkey Kong 64, Goldeneye 64, Shadowman, Yoshi's Story, Super Smash Bros, Pokémon Snap, Pokémon Stadium 1&2, Starfox 64, and of course the two Zeldas. This is one hell of a list!

However, the Wii U library is still slightly superior in my opinion. Super Mario 3D World, New Super Mario Bros U, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros 4, Splatoon, Yoshi's Wooly World, Captain Toad, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Bayonetta 1&2, Pokken, Hyrule Warriors, Fatal Frame 5, Fast Racing Neo, and Super Mario Maker. And then there are a few games that got nitpicked to death for reasons I will never understand like Devil's Third (yes, I said it), Paper Mario Color Splash, The Wonderful 101, ZombiU and Starfox Zero which I all really enjoy. Also on the Zelda side there are the remasters of the Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, and last but definitely not least Breath of the Wild. 

The N64 had instant 4 player multiplayer action, while the Wii U recognizes Wiimotes and seriously, everybody and their mom has Wiimotes at home so there was no need to buy new controllers. Also no need for Rumble Paks and Controller Paks swapping in and out during gameplay. Also, say what you want but I am a big fan of the Wii U Gamepad to this day and I honestly never understood how people can think it's bulky when it's actually super comfortable and light so I even stop feeling it in my hands after a while. This is THE best controller ever in my eyes, across all generations and all systems.

And to top that off, the best thing ever is off-TV play. We stopped bargaining about who got to use the TV anymore, what could possibly be better than that? Off-TV play was probably the main reason why I was able to invest the thousands of gaming hours into all these games mentioned above in the first place. Because a lot of them are huge time sinks, that's for sure.

The second best thing was Miiverse until it got axed. It was such a nice place to talk about games you enjoyed and to share screenshots and drawings. Also the integration into some games was truly beautiful and enhanced the experience.

Both are the worst Nintendo consoles, but Wii U wins by virtue of having more than one RPG alone.



Lol, like this is in any way a contest. N64.

It’s Ocarina of Time plus Majora’s Mask versus nothing, Super Mario 64 versus nothing, GoldenEye versus nothing, Banjo versus nothing, a whole bunch of good Star Wars games versus nothing, and many more versus well.. nothing. And of course Star Fox 64 versus Star Fox Zero, which may as well have been nothing. The only thing WiiU has is Mario Kart 8, but since a better version of that game came to Switch you don’t need a WiiU for that anymore either. Obviously I’m hyperboling, WiiU doesn’t literally have nothing, and there were even a couple fun games but compared to the classics on N64, none can hold a candle. WiiU was easily Nintendo’s worst console.
