WADC: This week’s Top5 is inspired by the recent news that Nintendo has taken a bit of a digger in regards to its annual sales numbers. Hardcore gamers probably saw this coming a mile away, but I don’t think any of us were prepared for the type of losses that were reported early Monday.

N64 and GameCube were their worst systems ever from every perspective. Crap controllers, very few games, terrible sales and 3rd part support... You name it. Sadly, Ocarina of Time is just 1 game if you know what I mean. =/

We could argue about "Quality > Quantity" but the PS1 and PS2, Snes, NES, etc. had both and with better sales, controllers, games, 3rd party support, etc. The only people that say that the N64 is one of the best consoles ever are those that didn't have a choice. I don't know a single person that wanted to go back to their N64 after playing games like FFVII, MGS or Silent Hill.

Gameboy should be in front of the DS, because it revolutionized handhelds

NES: The origin of all things great.
