Default Re: Greatest console of all time?

When it comes down to greatest for me, I think of a combination of groundbreaking systems combined with vast libraries and exciting, fresh titles. From my own personal experience I'd say:

1. NES - memories combined with game playability and library. How many hours did you spend playing Zelda or Punch Out and countless others? What this system did for gaming history can probably never be duplicated, as it brought gaming into the mainstream and towards the forefront of entertainment for a generation, while creating a marketplace for the systems of today and tomorrow.

2. PS/PS2 - incredible library, and the system created a whole new level of gaming experience and capability (which has obviously been surpassed and will continue to be, but at the time was incredible).

3. Gameboy - Creating a portable system was a groundbreaking idea, and although the games were simple, playing Soccer, Paperboy and Megaman in the car on those long summer vacations with the rents was such a fantasic option for kids like myself.

You could make an argument for every other system having its moments. For example, I loved the fact that Genesis's games were so much more vivid and graphic than the NES, which was groundbreaking for me at the time. But just about every system has its roots in these, so that's why I'd rate them in greatness this way.

Here's hoping that I feel the PS3 is the best five years from now, so I get back some of that expensive investment.

For me it definetly was SEGA dremcast.

This system just didnt sell i dont know why Its graphics were 10x better than ps1 and N64 made them look like the stone age or something. IT had some good games when it came out, NFL 2k, Ready To rumble, SOnic- Hedgehog, San Fran rush.... Great system but didn't sell.

I just wanted to say it's really sad, how people who haven't played the older consoles believe things like 360 and PS3 are the greatest consoles ever made and that Halo 3 is the greatest game ever made. Makes you feel sorry for them, because they never experienced the golden age of gaming.

Sonic 2 was the first video game I ever played. I also had NHL 96, great game. I also loved this game. Sucked at it though.
