The DS isn't on the list because it's a hand-held, not a console. It's a whole different ballgame, and really you can't compare the capabilities of a hand-held system to a console.

I would suppose that is also the reason for not having things like "PC" on the list even though there are many PC gamers.

It'll have to be PS2 for me.
Had the best games, or best RPGs for the very least - Final Fantasy X to the SMT series and spinoffs, Kingdom Hearts etc etc

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

I've always been partial to the Super NES and Nintendo 64. Apart from forming the bulk of my childhood gaming experiences, these two systems were from a different era, where somelicensed games were actually good, and fewer in number. When RPGs weren't yet part of the mainstream and didn't need to be massive, cinematic spectacles to be successful, when platformers were the norm, when games had the right balance of graphics, gameplay, and story, etc.

^That's why I voted Master System and Mega Drive- I was always a Sega girl and I think that Alex Kidd, Sonic the Hedgehog and Dynamite Heady were the best platform games around

There are some great games on SNES. Anybody who has used the Wii shop would ahve seen all the SNES, NES, N64 etc games you can download. My boyfriend has dozens of them, some better than others. Of course it's not quite the same as playing on the old consoles, but just as fun.

Super Nintendo man, all the way!

No one can say otherwise unless they haven't actually played the great games on it.

The SEGA Mega Drive



Although the console with the coolest name, the "Neo Geo" isn't on that list.

This isn't even challenging. Other consoles may have nice bonus features like DVD playing, better graphical capabilities and back-dating for games, but not even the best games produced for any console since the death of the Nintendo 64 have even touched the raw quality of the best or even above-average games on the SNES, PS1 and N64 in terms of actual substance.

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

I was a big fan of the SNES in it's heyday. Super Metroid was awesome, and still is, even today. (My son plays it on his Wii)
That said, I think all the latest consoles are neat, but personally I don't play them. I moved to PC games in the '90s, (like Quake, awesome!) but finally stopped playing games altogether, I was just wasting too much time.

PS3 fo' sho'! I mean, you can play Bluray, Bluray games, play online for free and do all sorts! And plus it has good sound system for when you're playing music, BR DVDs and when you're uploading photos and music; seems to upload them to a HD standard. (:

Xbox 360 and the PS3 are undoubtely the champions of games consoles, at the moment. The other old consoles are fun, yes, but no one in their right mind would actually choose one of the older ones with their toblerone head graphics and 7 level stories over them.

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

I really like my old school brick DS myself, it still works after 6 years or so .

On a side note... Amazon stopped selling 3ds's. I heard about this earlier on the news... it sounds like it's either a shipping problem with them or something.

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

I just brought home my brand new Ps3! but I still think a Ps2 is much better. Disregarding graphics and et all, if you are in the mood for the best library of games and want good gameplay, you can't get better than ps2.... I mean GTS San Andreas, SOTC, God of war... I mean ps2 boasts the best games...

Definitely. I still have my old PS2 -- 11 years old and still kicking . Got some new used games for it and I love them. Planning on getting a PS3 sometime this summer and am looking forward to playing games on it too, but my PS2 still holds a special place in my heart, along with my Nintendo Wii .

Have a 3ds and it's ok, but my old DS is better made, imo. Still like the 3ds though and am looking forward to playing more games on it.
