I don't know how Mario's Picross is hated. I actually loved that game and it got me hooked on the Picross series.

I think the game was heavily criticized for being to hard to look at due to small pixels & the lack of backlight support.

Well, it ain't a problem on Super Game Boy.

As much as I love Mario, one shouldn't be blind to such a thing as that. Besides, while they function as they should, one could consider games such as Sticker Star as 'bad' in a sense.

Was Mario Clash put on the list just because it's a Virtual Boy game?

The headache inducing red & black graphics makes it difficult to see what you're doing along with the inability to save your progress.

That's a good point. However, I'm talking about the gameplay itself rather than how the hardware plays it.

It's basically Mario Bros. in a 2.5D perspective. Would've been nice if Nintendo would make a new 3DS Mario game with that type of gameplay.

No surprise. There were some really bad Mario games in the 90s that fans felt weren't needed. Those Mario's Early Years games were a huge no-no, because why be learning ABCs and numbers and stuff that kids could learn outside of playing video games like that. The Mario Teaches Typing games, I mean I played the second game back when I was young, but one of the biggest flaws was having Peach's dress be purple instead of pink. What's ironic is the famous voice actor Charles Martinet who voices Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi and some other characters started voicing in the franchise even before Super Mario 64, and that was in Mario's Game Gallery. The Mario games are supposed to be for fun, not education in general and then it takes away all the fun for the adults when they should already know the meanings of words since K-2 and so on. And because the Virtual Boy is one of the worst gaming consoles, that places Mario's Tennis being one of the worst.

How is Mario Tennis worse than Hotel Mario? That game is way worse than Mario Tennis

I said Mario's Tennis which is for the Virtual Boy, NOT Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color. Are you being confused or something? Please research with the keywords (without necessarily putting them in the exact phrase) Mario's Tennis Virtual Boy and you'll know the difference. I'm saying that the Virtual Boy is one of the worst gaming consoles in history because of gamers getting severe headaches which could link to becoming blind.

Yes, I know the game Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color was in fact a hit game and I loved it (but I only played the Nintendo 64 version). Don't blame other people if you're misreading what they're talking about.

I don't the Virtual Boy is that bad of a console.

The word of advice is don't buy the Virtual Boy unless you want to take that risk that really isn't worth it. I also heard that there was going to be a Virtual Boy version of the popular SNES game Donkey Kong Country: Diddy's Kong Quest, but thankfully they cancelled that version due to the Virtual Boy being a disaster. When the Virtual Boy failed, it was quickly pulled from retailers thank goodness. I didn't even know about the Virtual Boy back when I was little and didn't know it even existed, and the first time I heard about it was when I was doing research back in my teen years in the 2000s.

Well, I'll be judge of judge of that and someday buy this so called 
"awful console"

Yeah, but I don't think it's worth the risk for a console that not only failed miserably but had numerous incidents to prove it. IMO, it should be illegal to sell such merchandise if it had incidents where people ended up going blind or just suffered vision loss. Almost everyone at the time the Virtual Boy was new just threw that console (and its games too) out the window to demand that console and its games to cease production and be pulled from stores. Oh, and I also found out the price for the Virtual Boy compared to other platforms was more of a rip-off.

There are far worse consoles than the Virtual Boy.
