Nintendo Voice Chat Presents: The Greatest Nintendo Console Ever Tournament

The Nintendo Switch release date is just around the corner, and this auspicious anniversary has Nintendo Voice Chat hosts pondering an important question: is this the best Nintendo console ever? And if not, what is it?

To answer this question, we’re turning to the IGN community for help. Over the next month, we’ll be hosting continuously updated support here on IGN, with fans able to vote on individual matches. At the end, we’ll crown the greatest Nintendo console of all time, whether it’s a traditional console or a handheld!

NVC Presents: The Greatest Nintendo Console Ever. Here is the current installment!

NVC’s Best Nintendo Console Mount

The setup of this bracket is similar to the original (much better) NFL playoff format. We seeded individual consoles based on considerations such as library, longevity, console design, and extras and seeded them accordingly. Here’s how we seeded each slice. The Super NES, NES, Game Boy and Switch get a bye because they’re just that good!


(1) SuperNintendo

(2) Nintendo Entertainment System

(3) GameCube

(4) Nintendo 64

(5) Nintendo Wii

(6) Nintendo Wii U


(1) Game Boy

(2) Nintendo Switch

(3) Game Boy Advance (GBA)

(4) NintendoDS

(5) Nintendo 3DS

(6) Virtual boy

We will rearrange the matchups for the next round based on the winners. Will there be a major upheaval? Time will tell us!
