Main Question or Discussion Point

What do you think is/was the best games console. I personally am torn between the Xbox and the Sega Megadrive

The Xbox because it is IMHO the best performing Console out with great graphics, though only a few games are worth getting!

The Megadrive because it was ULTIMATE! and also because of the game 'Flashback' which i think was the first game to model the protagonists movements on actual human movements..very lifelike!

What is your favourite and why?


ps. Ignore the spelling of 'Gamecube' i have just seen it! would some kind mentor change it please?

ATARI!

Even though you didnt put it on there....the best system has to be the Atari! the original *for me* game system. Makes me wish i had mine again....so since you dont have atari on there [?] I voted for the next best...the nes. The length of those games beat out most of todays junk!

Yeah unfortunately you only get 10 slots for the poll, so i put the more recent ones on i suppose. I also didnt bother with handheld games other wise i suppose the Gameboy and Sega Gamegear may have creeped in somewhere (and we all know that Amiga and Atari ST were computers and not just games machines!)

Keep posting!

The PC is the best. I can play console games under emulation.

The SNES is by far the greatest games console ever, and always will be no matter what. Had the best platform game evermade on it, i am obviously talking about Super Mario World the most adictive platform game i have ever played. Then there was street fighter and the Origional Mortal Kombat the 2 best fighting games ever and then there was super mario kart, does multiplayer gaming get any better than super mario kart? I think not.

Oh and just because a console has superior graphics then it doesnt mean its a superior console.

Aww poo. I meant to vote for the ps2. Any possibility to change it?

Also, you should edit the poll to ps2, since it plays 1 and 2 games, replace the ps1 with neo-geo.

Mostly because it plays all the ps1 games, and ps2 games. On the PS1, there was Gran Turismo 1 and 2, and the ps2 has GT3 A-Spec.

Not to mention the best Final Fantasy games are on the PS2.

Atari, Nes, Snes, sega, Coleco Vision, Neo-Geo, commadore(spell) can all be emulated on computers now.
