Ranking the BEST Nintendo Consoles from NES to Switch!

  • Published on Oct 20, 2019
  • The NES first released over 34 years ago in North America, so I thought it would be fun to look at all Nintendo consoles from the NES to the Nintendo Switch to see what systems are the BEST!

      I agree about the N64, especially because it had the most wonky controller ever. I loved the GameCube and Switch is hands down my favorite system ever

      @RGT85 Yes please do a video of ranking the Nintendo handhelds. And make ranking videos of PS, Sega, and possibly Xbox. Xbox hasn't been around as much as the others. But Microsoft or other PC manufacturers might be another if others are into PC gaming. Idk

    I think the 64 and game cube should of been in the A column And the Nintendo switch should’ve been in the cream of the crop section with the Nintendo and super Nintendo

    N64 is cream of the crop IMO - maybe just looking at it through nostalgia goggles though

  • SnakeVenom3000
    SnakeVenom3000 18 days ago

    I appreciate your opinion and agree with you for the most part, but I have to disagree with you on the N64. I would have to rate it Atleast an A. That’s because while the cartridge media did hold it back from having a lot of third party support from the likes of Square, it still have genre defining games that weren’t matched for a while on the PS1. There wasn’t anything like Super Mario 64 or Ocarina of Time before they came out. Goldeneye proved you could make a good FPS for consoles.
    You also have to look at the hardware innovations it brought such as reintroducing analog control as the primary control method, as well as rumble feedback.
    Everyone has their own opinions and mine is that the N64 deserves to be ranked higher. I don’t think it was the cream of the crop as it wasn’t perfect by a long shot, but it was still a great console.

    As a kid I couldn't believe what I was seeing when playing Goldeneye 64, definitely nothing like it at the time
    I actually couldn't find a single game that left such an impression on the Wii
    RGT, this is a very clinical ranking

  • ThoughT

    I wasn’t thrilled to see N64 in tier C, but GameCube B instead of A? How dare you. The power of that system combined with the size was astounding. The controller was definitely my favorite at the time, hands down. I worked that little yellow nipple like a master and as a result, I’ve been with my wife for 15 amazing years. THANKS NINTENDO!

    While I agree with everything here, the fact Netflix isn’t on Switch has nothing to do with Nintendo. Netflix has to develop the app, that is out of their control.

  • Wulver

    I would put N64 at Cream of the Crop, then NES/SNES at A and all the rest below that. I really wanted a Switch and was really hyped almost like it was the second coming of N64... but it just didn't provide enough for me to pick up. I'm still waiting for a pro model to actually purchase one.

  • The Gaming Harbinger

    I am enjoying the rankings I am seeing in the comments. N64 should be able to slightly edge out the GameCube. With that being said both consoles were solid.

    I disagree with some of your rankings, I believe the Switch and Wii should have been cream of the crop.
    You can look to impact on the market, games available (Wii had a lot of hidden gems and Metal Jesus Rocks would back me up on that.), and just general sales numbers. GameCube would be an A. It lacked a robust online library but it was online compatible. GameCube was also comparable in power and performance more so then the PS2, a lot of great exclusives, and a controller still used today. Finally N64 I would place in the B category for a number of high profile hits still enjoyed and revered today as standard bearers like Mario 64, Zelda, Goldeneye, and Star Fox 64.

    I would move wii to cream of the crop. It sold so well and is such a good console. It has so many good games to. The N64 should be with B tier or A tier that console did so much

    You got the N64 completely wrong by comparing it to playstation.
    Snes and N64 are the 2 best Nintendo consoles ever!

  • Bobby Hernandez

    N64 is an all time classic ... it’s games defined 3D platforming, 4 players out of the box, the first console analog stick and some of the greatest games of all time.
