Note that this is a list of the most LEGENDARY, not best or funnest or other things like that.

The Top TenXW

1Nintendo 64 (Nintendo)

Let's be honest. This was the obvious and only possible choice for number one. Not only was this console the pioneer of three dimensional gaming, it also had some of the best games of all time. The two best games (possibly the two best games ever) are Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Enough said. N64 is the best ever. - evil7

best exclusive golden eye super mario 64 the best game ever legend of zelda ocarina of time jetforcegemini and many other exclusive ps2 nintendo entertainment system and n64 legends these consoles may never be forgottrn

I think everything is great with the console also the games of course but I don't really like the controller that much the stick is easy to break

Analog stick.

4 player mode.

Great games.

Rumble (the thing that attaches to the controller and vibrates).

Need I say more?

2PlayStation2 (Sony)

I have always dreamed of owning one back in the days when it was new, but I couldn't since it was kinda High in price for a kid like me.. & even though I didn't own one, It stills the Best to me. Great childhood memories are coming to me right now..

One of the 2 consoles that has a 100 best games from ign. That means it has the most amazing games. Over 100 extraordinary games. What the heck, why can't I post yet. A little more, more, more, still going. There! - Jammer196

Legendary! :D has the best games library on the planet! And included classics such as the Grand Theft Auto series! In my opinion the most LEGENDARY CONSOLE EVER! - dragon13304

Notice how there is only one Microsoft console in the top ten. It is because the Xbox sucks! Buy Sony or Nintendo instead.

3Nintendo Entertainment System (Nintendo)

NES FTW! This was the most popular system on the planet for a VERY long time. Even the Sega Genesis, which WAS a better system, could not keep up. Nintendo is a true legend. - VADERtheIMPALER

I heard that back in the day, more a lot people had an NES than a computer.

HOW IS THIS ABOVE THE DREAMCAST!?!? That thing had house of the dead, soul Calibur, Jet Grind Radio, Power Stone, and SA2! Yes, this is a great console but still...

4Xbox360 (Microsoft)

The Legendary Console ever The new Slim Model and the kinect, I like the user friendly features of kinect. It's better than the irritating wand with the ball on the top, it has only the use of hands. But Kinect makes the whole body Active!

I love the Xbox 360, it has good games and you can have your own avatar!

better than all the other systems especially the new model - decorulez97

6Super Nintendo Entertainment System (Nintendo)

Super Mario All-Stars, the Legend Of Zelda, A Link to the Past, and, best of all, SUPER Mario WORLD! I still play it TODAY! GO Nintendo! - HeavyDonkeyKong

While I think the N64's best games are some of the best games to ever be released, I wish there had been more of them. The great thing about the Super Nintendo was that not only were the games great, but there were a lot of them due to Nintendo not losing all the 3rd party support yet.

7DreamCast (Sega)

It was revolutionary. Had ports that were better than the arcade for the first time ever, and incorporated online play right out of the box. Online was fast for the time, and used analog triggers. Sega was the first to experiment with online gaming with the Saturn net link, but it caught on this time, and resulted in Microsoft taking a page from SEGA when making the Xbox - PCgamer98

The first sixth generation console. Also the first to offer full internet access and online multiplayer right out of the box. Had an unbelievable library of games, including the masterpieces that are the shenmue games

I still got mine, it hardly works, but I still got it.

8Atari 2600 (Atari)

Well, here it is, the first popular home video game console. We all remember the addicting games like space invaders and pitfall. It launched in 1977 and was not discontinued until 1992. Now that's what I call success. - PCgamer98

9Wii (Nintendo)

How could you not love the wii? You can play the best Zelda games on it. Whats best is you can play game cube games on it. How could you hate that? The Wii should be where the Xbox 360 is.

The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Skyward Sword make the Wii legendary. The 2 best Mario games, the 2 best Zelda games, and a great Smash Bros. Game.

10Wii U

Nintendo always has new clever ideas for both this and last generation.

Seriously, what is this stupid list, put Wii U and Wii like number one or 2

The controller makes you not even were there's a choice so you don't look at the T.V. -

This is an under rated console. - USGC

The Contenders

11Magnavox Odyssey

The first video game console I think this is the ancestor of video games

12Pong (Atari)

This is a game... Not a console... But it is legendary I guess.

13Cathode Ray Tube Amusement Device

This was the one that started it all. - drdevil

This was the FIRST. The FIRST. Before "Tennis for Two". It came out during WW2, and you shot down planes.

15Nintendo 3DS
16Nintendo Gameboy Advance

Mario Brothers, Super Mario Bros. 2, 3, Mario World, Yoshi's Island... WAIT! We're missing something. No. We're not talking about Wrecking Crew or Mariokart. We're talking about GBA's most fun game. Are you thinking Mariokart Super Circut? You thought wrong. The answer is SUPER Mario ADVANCE! I just to play it so much that the GBA's amazing millions of sold units put this awesome game into a series.

17Genesis (Sega)

You can plug a Sega Genesis controller into the Atari 2600, and it will actually work!

"GENESIS DOES, WHAT NINTENDON'T"
-What ever you wanted SEGA.
It so awesome the desing, but his add on ones cause failures.
I love NINTENDO and Sega as my sons.

Great console but the "Genesis does what Nintendon't" slogan is just nonsense but this video game console charm will never be forgotten

19PlayStation 4 (Sony)
