What do you guys consider to be the worst Nintendo console of all time? This is a very divisive topic, as classic games were released on all of Nintendo's main consoles throughout the years. Ultimately, however there were some consoles that were worse than others when you look at the bigger picture.
For me Nintendo's 'worst' console actually had two of the biggest games that lead the way for generations to come - the Nintendo 64.
The Nintendo 64 only launched with Pilotwings 64 and Super Mario 64 in North America. Super Mario 64 was a phenomenal game, but game releases were staggered throughout the console's life cycle. Nintendo lost a lot of third party support with the Nintendo 64 as well, which they've still had to deal with to this day. That said, it looks like the Switch has some of the best support they've seen since the SNES.
The controller is also quite poor with it's odd shape and design. Although the analogue stick was a big revolution at this point, the ergonomics of the controller were awful.
The combination of the lack third party support, consistent game releases and the controller are factors that make me consider this to be their worst console. Despite having great games like Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Wave Race 64, Banjo-Kazooie, etc, it was quite lacklustre compared to their other consoles.
Runner Up - Wii U
The Wii U is my second least favourite Nintendo console. Like the Nintendo 64, it had some great games on it, but in the grand scheme of things it was a pretty sad time to be a Nintendo fan. The whole concept was poorly executed by Nintendo, the controller was clunky and felt cheap, the console UI was awful, the game releases were staggered and the third party support was practically non-existent. The one benefit of the Wii U's struggles was that Nintendo ultimately hit a lot of the right boxes with the Switch and we've seen a complete 180 from the Wii U days, for the most part.
