Yeah this is a stupid thread but whatever.


#2

I found it real hard to answer here tbh. Could have gone 4 or 5 different ways


#3

SNES for Super Mario World and Chrono Trigger and Shadowrun.


#4

but then Mega Drive for Shining Force 2…


#5

Playstation is my favourite on accounts of it being the one I had at the most formative gaming stage of my life.


#6

Switch because it’s been the portable indie machine I’ve been craving for the better part of a decade.

Slowly followed by the 360 and, rather surprisingly, the Xbox One (s or x) because of Gamepass


#7

This is very very true.

Did I ever tell you my friends at school and I wrote a sequel to SF2? It was basically just a notebook with loads of poorly drawn monsters and their stats. Great fun.


#8

Switch is great but the biggest problem s the build quality. I hate the way the joycons wobble around a little bit in portable mode.

Picked up my vita the other day and it feels so much nicer and sturdier


#9

^This but Atari


#10

But the problem with the vita is the support was laughable and peripheral storage D: tht cost like 5 BILLION pounds. And I hated the interface


#11

I love old Atari games, they’re almost like abstract art in a way. Just weird blobs and intense squarewave blips with no music or anything.


#12

But lets be real, outside of maybe 3 games the machine has nothing going for it in this day and age other than pure nostalgia.


#13

yeah no doubt, the screen was amazing though and it had an actual dpad!


#14

PS3 just in terms of having the highest share of my GOATs (New Vegas, Souls, The Last of Us, xcom reboot, Skyrim).


#15

Original PlayStation, followed closely by PlayStation 2.


#16

The best one ever is definitely the one that I happened to own when I was 10-13 years old


#17

Yeah the Vita is the best portable system ever made, shame Sony completely dropped the ball.


#18

yeah I know it’s a dumb thread but gotta pass the time somehow :wink:


#19

I voted SNES 1st (cos that was my 1st console) but then switched to Playstation which was the next console I owned

I think my mind was most blown by that transition - playing games like Resident Evil, Tomb Raider etc Seemed incredible at the time that I was able to play games like that at home


#20

where’s the dreamcast option YOU SHIT
