Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

For me NES will always be the best since that was my first one and I grew up playing it. So many fond memories of Mario, Paperboy, Jaws, Castlevania, Marble Madness, Duck Hunt, etc.

Also, what other game console do you almost pass out trying to get it work as you blow all the dust off the game and inside the machine

I have XBOX now and I love it! Also Super NES was fun as well. Yoshi is the greatest.

The Nintendo 64 had some of the greatest games to date! I miss my N64... I miss a lot of the games. I loved Goldeneye 007, Super Smash Brothers, Super Mario 64.

Hands down... n64!

As much as I couldn't live without my DS Lite, I had to say Playstation 2. I've had it since it came out, and i love it! I can play my sister's old PS games on it, I can use it to listen to CDs, and I can watch DVDs on it! Besides, just about every game, except Ninetendo games, that is released, is released to PS2. And for the Ninetendo games, I just rely on my trusty DS Lite

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

My favorite is the PlayStation 3. I have always been a PlayStation Fan since the first PlayStation came out. Although for the PS2 generation of consoles, my friends (He was a Nintendo fan and owned the Gamecube) convinced me to buy the Gamecube and I fell in love with Nintendo's games. Although I convinced him to get a PS2 becuase alot of games were only available on the PS2. So this gen I had to get the PS3 and the Wii. I like both of them and have had fun with each. My particual favorite games for them are Heavenly Sword for the PS3 and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Wii. I don't like Xboxes because you have to pay for the online and most of the good games are shooters and/or really violent games.

The games I am looking forward the most on them are:
Wii: Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Smash Brothers Brawl (I almost cried when SSBB got delayed two months)

PS3: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (I cried when it got pushed from late 2007 to early 2008) , and Final Fantasy 13.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

The Wii! It's just so different. It has brought so many people into gaming that have never been before.
I had never owned any platform other than my computers before the Wii. Not for lack of want, but they were always so expensive until the new one came out, and then the old was just... old. The Wii is possible for families without a lot of income which is nice for them.
And even though I paid twice as much as retail, it is worth every penny.
It may not have the best games yet, but it has enough. I also enjoy the multi-player possibilities with the Wii. It's such a great party device!

N64 in terms of innovation(3d graphics had been done by Playstation and Saturn but N64's were much better), games library(probably the most quality titles of any system ever except maybe SNES or PS2), and longevity.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

... Well, since I believe that a system is only as good as it's games, I'm gonna have to go with the system that has the most of my favourite games.. =) .. The SNES... I have more favourite SNES games than any other system.. (though, most of those games have been re-released for the GBA)

My favorite is PS2. The games there are far better and more entertaining than any made for other consoles. Can't wait to try out PS3!

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I have to say X-box, X-box360, and Wii. I only have the X-box, but it's awsome to play on and the graphics are great. On the X-box360 though the graphics are even better from what I've seen. I've played the Wii before and it's pretty cool playing with a remote instead of a controler.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I think Nintendo definitely is the best brand in the sense that Nintendo and Super Nintendo really did begin our modern video game history with Super Mario, Gameboy was a pretty huge hit for kids when they were travelling, N64 really did change the video game world in regards to the quality of both graphics and gameplay, and Wii is just incredibly unique.


I think the video system that brought me the most joy was N64, so I'm going to vote for it, but the one that was most significant I think was the original Nintendo Entertainment System.

SONIC! Sonic on the Sega Drive and Sonic Rush on the Nintendo DS.
Best games EVER. Oh, Mariokarts too. The Sims 2.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I have always been a bit of a Nintendo fangirl, seriously fueled by my love for all things Zelda.
I did not, however, vote for the GameCub, because I wasn't fortunate enough to encounter one of these bear-shaped creatures.

I did have to add PS2, though, because it led me to one of my favorite games ever, if not the #1...Final Fantasy X/X-2.

Depends if you can call the PC a gaming console. Mine pretty much is!

I love the PC. I think it's better than any other console!

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I voted the original Playstation, because it was fairly definitive for its time. If I were to go more modern, I'd go Wii, purely because, just like snapegirl, I'm a totally Nintendo Girl, but also because it shows most development.

This is the seventh generation of gaming. Take it from the real oldies to today, the differences are huge. Even taking a series into account- like Zelda, where the first one was.. really lame when you think of Twilight Princess or Wind Waker.

Also love the DS! But I'm noting it wasn't an option.

Tut. Tut. Tut.

I've changed my mind. The new Nintendo Wii is amazing. I love it and it's actually a lot better than X-box.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

Nintendo DS is easily my favourite (and not on the list :o) closely followed by Nintendo Wii. I find that I get sick of games released on Sony platforms extremely quickly (with the exception of Lego Batman and Guitar Hero). DS and Wii are so versatile and with endless possibilities and have IMO the best games.

Lets face it you cant beat the original nintendo, but im a big fan of the n64 and the original sega system. And the Wii is probably the most amazing game system i have ever seen, so inventive, and i love how it gets people off the couch!

It's older than me, but I love it
