Ranking Nintendo’s Consoles

The Virtual Boy proved to be a dismal failure for Nintendo but in many ways, it was ahead of its time. The Nintendo DS came at the perfect time, long before mobile games and remains the second best-selling video game console of all time (eventually beaten out by the PlayStation 2). The Game Boy is the toughest gaming console ever made, sturdy enough to survive a bomb. The Game Boy Advance helped further advanced sprite-based technology. WII led the “console wars” selling more than 101 million units in the first quarter of 2012. Wii U is still home to four of the greatest games Nintendo has ever made. Nintendo 3DS stayed relevant for the longest time especially when the Wii U suffered in sales. The GameCube was home to a stellar lineup of fantastic games. Nintendo 64 had a collection of genre-busting, industry-redefining, titles. The NES helped revitalize the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983 and introduced a plethora of now-iconic video game characters, a ton of accessories and it forever changed the relationship of console manufacturers and third-party software developers. Super NES took the formula established by the NES and made it bigger, faster, and better in every way imaginable. But what is the best Nintendo console? In this segment from the NXpress Nintendo Podcast episode 14, we duked it out, and boy did the conversation get heated.
