@OorWullie thank you so much for posting! May i ask why GC is so low? I respect your opinion either way. 😀

@I-U I’m assuming you liked the motion controls for the Wii then 😊 I respect your opinion! I think the Switch is in a position to become the best console ever if it releases a few more First Party games. Thanks for posting! 😃

1. Gamecube
Has so many great iconic games. Paper Mario TTYD, Metroid Prime, Pikmin, Mario Sunshine, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing, Tales of Symphonia, Skies of Arcadia, Baten Kaitos, and that is really just barely scratching the surface. The Gamecube's library has a lot of my favorite games of all time, so I can't see myself placing it any lower on this list. On top of that not many Gamecube games have been ported to modern consoles yet, so Gamecube games still have a lot of value.

2. Switch
Even though its lifespan isn't over yet, we already have such great games on it. On top of that I'd say it's my favorite concept for a console, and the offical pro controller is the most comfortable controller I've ever used.

3. SNES
So many games that still hold up extremely well today. Was my first home console and I have many fond childhood memories of it, but it isn't just nostalgia based. There are plenty of SNES games that I've just played for the first time in the last few years, and they're still amazing games.

4. Wii
Has a ton of great games, but I felt certain games were held back a bit by adding in some forced motion controls, and it also has a ton of shovelware.

5. Wii U
Had a handful of good games, but essentially the Switch just does the Wii U's job better. The only thing the Wii U had over the Switch was dual screens, but hardly any games used that concept effectively, if at all.

6. NES
It has some gems, but a lot of games haven't aged well, partially due to the limitations of the console and partially from having games adopted from the arcade era of gaming. The controller is also pretty uncomfortable.

7. N64
The most confusing controller out of any of Nintendo's consoles, and honestly doesn't have that many great games. Don't get me wrong, it still has some standouts (Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Banjo), but compared to Nintendo's other consoles there really isn't a whole lot there.

I know that this thread died like 2 months ago, but I'm bored so I'll bite.

7. N64
Most of the games are either garbage or aged poorly or have better alternatives on there consoles. Sure there are some hidden gems, but most (if not all) of the good games are either on newer consoles (Zelda Games, Banjo, and SM64) or have better Sequels on other consoles (MK64). Oh, and the Original PlayStation had better games.

6. Wii U
Garbage Controllers, that's it.

5. NES
Just like the N64, poorly aged games. However, this is at number 5 because so many classic franchises started here. Final Fantasy, Mario, Zelda, Metal Gear. I mean nobody is gonna crave playing on this today, but it has some great Games. Too bad its games get rereleased on every Nintendo Console since the Wii making it more outdated than it was before.

4. Wii
I hate the motion controls, but it worked well in some games, most notably Metroid Prime. And it had some killer games. Probably would have put it up higher if it wasn't for the last 3 systems. And the shovelware.

3. SNES
Amazing Graphics (for the time), amazing Platformers, no Sonic, and of course, Super Race FX. You know how the NES started some amazing series? Well the SNES not only also made new titles, bit also perfected existing franchises.

2. GameCube
Imagine the N64, but instead of garbage titles, it's instead hundreds of quailty titles, including games from virtually every Nintendo Franchise. It's the console that featured Metroid Prime, Mario Sunshine, F-Zero GX, The Game Boy Player, Arguably the Best Smash Bros Game (it isn't) Melee, and Chibi-Robo.

1. Nintendo Switch
It's in the name. It switches from portable to home console. And it has hundreds of beloved games and New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe. And it's the console with a ton of amazing indie games (The complete opposite of the Wii).

This is really difficult because outside of the Wii U, I own all of them and had a great time with all of them at one stage or another.

7. Wii U
As I said, I never owned one, but my brother did. When I played it, it just never clicked with me, maybe because it wasn't 'mine'. But then again, it was also released at a time when I'd gone off gaming and I wasn't home a heck of a lot in between travelling the world, working or going out a lot in my spare time. Solid line-up of games as I'm finding out with the re-releases on the Switch, so maybe I missed out the first time around here... but just glad there's a second go at it.

6. NES
Enjoyable console with a solid, classic library of games, but never owned one during its hey-day (got one much later) so I missed out on a bit here. Still, always love plugging it in and giving it a whirl. It just doesn't hold the same sentimentality to me as the others do.

5. Wii
Always holds a special place for me. Got it on launch day and was heavily into it right from the word go, but after the dust settled in the past decade, the novelty of the whole thing I think just wore off with me, as well as me going off gaming altogether.

I'm a bit of a traditionalist with standard controls rather than motion controls too. The Virtual Console was a revelation though, messaging, internet browser and many of the features, as were a number of the Wii titles which were terrific in their day.

Actually had my Wii mod-chipped early on as well so I never spent a fortune on games - would either download them from the internet if possible and burn them to disc, or rent them from the video store and save them to a hard drive. I ended up with a hell of a lot of games. The only Nintendo console I could ever do that with.

4. Gamecube
Got one pretty early in its original run, and man, this was, and still is, one of the most underrated consoles ever. Had brilliant first-party titles - I'm yet to play a better Mario Kart than Double Dash - and there are so many others like Smash, Wario Ware, Mario Party 5, Luigi's Mansion... the list goes on. Third-party titles were great too. Controller was very comfortable I found. Think anyone who never owned a Gamecube missed out on a bit here.

3. Nintendo 64
I remember when it was newly-released, playing it at a friend's place who had received one for his birthday, and being so used to 2D gaming, it was a real 'wow' moment for me...and somewhat of a struggle to play initially. But from the moment I got N64, I just became immersed in it. Many, many hours poured into Banjo-Kazooie which remains one of my all-time favourite games, with so many others I still have such a soft spot for - 1080, DK64, Mario 64, Mario Party, both Zeldas, Banjo-Tooie, Top Gear Rally, Smash, Mario Kart, and so on. I'm probably biased and looking at it through nostalgic, rose-coloured glasses, but it doesn't bother me that the games probably haven't aged too well. They take me back to that part of my life which was just pure bliss. Cannot wait for Mario 3D All-Stars to drop this Friday to bring me back to that place again.

2. Super Nintendo
You never forget your first, and this was my first home console. Received the Super Mario All-Stars pack as a birthday gift from my parents, and everything from the box art (remember the big yellow box with all the Mario illustrations?) through to the games were like nothing I'd experienced at that time. Had also received Batman Returns (remains one of my all-time favourite games!) with it as well as an extra gift, and Super Star Wars later that day from my grandparents, so I was set right from the get-go. Used to rent games religiously (Friday or Saturday nights) and accumulated quite a collection over its run, owning all the classics and perhaps even some of the lesser-known titles that were outstanding in their own right, to even games that aren't so good but were fun at the time. I was a very sporty and active child, but when I wasn't doing that, playing Super Nintendo was a key activity and it remains one of my great memories growing up.

1. Nintendo Switch
Remember how I said that after the Wii had fizzled out for me and by the time Wii U had rolled around, I'd gone off gaming altogether? Well, the Nintendo Switch is the console that not only single-handedly brought me back, but reignited a love and passion for gaming that I hadn't had for around a decade and never thought I'd have again.

I bought it on launch day back in 2017 with BOTW, and have loved it ever since for its line-up of first-party games. Super Mario Odyssey is among my favourite ever, and I utilised handheld mode plenty when it was first released to the point where I'd play it most of the day in my office at work. Solid third-party support means there are so many other great titles to enjoy, and as mentioned earlier, re-releases of Wii U games mean I somewhat make up for what I missed out on years earlier on that console. The Super Nintendo and NES online programs are a great touch, and there always seems to be something new for me to play in the way of new and recent Switch releases. Thank you, Nintendo!

I can't definitively speak for all Nintendo Home Consoles since in terms of home systems, I lived under a house of PlayStation pretty much my entire life while only following Nintendo through handhelds most of the time, but the Switch is an excellent system and is one of my favorites of all time. It's Nintendo's PS2 moment I feel, with the sheer breadth of games and diverse genres in its library alone. Especially ironic considering there are a crap ton of former PS2 games available on this thing as is. All that's really missing now are .hack, Persona and Metal Gear Solid.

that's it outside of their handhelds which were all fantastic.I also think too many people see the NES through rose-colored glasses or nostalgia glasses. The 8-bit era never aged well and there's only a few handful of examples that did.

Honestly, the N64 didn't have many 1st party games and neither did the GameCube. They were both consoles that struggled and let's not even talk about the Wii U. I owned all of 5 games on that system and don't regret selling it.

I never had access to a NES or SNES back in the day, and my N64 access was limited because it was a flat-mate's in their room, for one year only. So my bottom three would be:

7. NES
6. SNES
5. N64

But the rest of them, they're like children and I love so much of each of them that it is impossible to rank them or pick a favourite out of them, so:

1. GameCube, Wii, Wii U, Switch.

I hope Nintendo's next console incorporates more of the Wii U and 3DS tech into a Switch i.e. it can be played as a single screen handheld, a dual screen handheld, can stream from a base unit for asynchronous stuff, and can dock.
