Best Video Game Consoles

The Top Ten Best Video Game Consoles

1 PlayStation 2

The best and most games! This is just a great console, that lasts a loong time! - gibsonrock53

Its not the oldest and certainly not the rarest, it is however the longest living console of all, even after the release of the PS3. It has enough games to keep you accupied for years (hell even average games are fun! ) and is litered with hidden gems to find own and play. Another stong point of this console is it simplicity. There is a moto that says that technology makes life easier, however as time goes by newer consoles seem to be implementing technologies that utilitise the internet which some times for the shake of preventing loss of profit make things incredibly complex. PS2 is the epitome of simplicity. Proper size and ease of use without online mumbo jumbo is the conslose strongpoint contrary to the belief that online conectivity and social features are best.

The only reson I chose PS2 over PC is because I do not think that PC belongs here in this voting. My vote was for a gaming console and not a PC. PC is still my primary gaming platform

Close behind PS2 comes ...more

Honestly the only reason a ton of people bought this was because dvd players were not cheap in that time and the PS2 was pretty much the cheapest choice at the time. It was an okay console I guess. I think the GCN, xbox, and dreamcast had something more to offer - Slither

PS3 is great but I'll never get tired of the PS2 because it's brilliant
- BigBoss

2 Xbox 360

I own both but I prefer my xbox... Hey! Love your console and don't diss the other

The only downfall of the xbox 360 is you have to buy your membership and ps3 doesn't call for that.

we got the Xbox one later on but Xbox 360 was something I had all my childhood

Two words: Halo 3. In actuality, at one point everyone and I mean everyone had a 360. The 360 was a masterpiece in every way. The only real problem was that it had Sonic 06. - MasterBeef

3 Nintendo 64

Brings back memories as a kid when I play a N64. So much fun the games are. And all I look for in a game is how fun it is to play not the graphics. So I would have a N64 over a PS3 Xbox 360 and Wii.

I am also so glad I grew up with the N64 because it was the best time for video games.

And some of the best times as a kid happen to me playing a N64.

I could go on all day about how awesome a N64 is but then I will probably be spamming.

007 Goldeneye I would play over Call of Duty anyday. Mario Kart 64 over Gran Turismo 5. Banjo-Kazooie over Halo.

I am going to end there but all the people who like Xbox 360/PS3 better are just kids who don't know what a true video game is.

Four games to get you to buy: Banjo-Kazooie, Golden Eye, Ocarina of Time, and Super Mario 64. The ultimate all star talent. Even though I never had one, the best the 360 has to counter that is Halo 3, which is good...but not better than four nigh perfect games. - MasterBeef

Even with its small library of game N64 is the best console of all time. It was powerful, innovative, and boasts a very high quality to quantity ratio. Some of the best games of all time are on N64 such as both Zelda Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Star Fox 64, and Conker's Bad Fur Day. I could list a good 100 games that I consider to be amazing. And considering there were only 296 USA-released N64 games, that's over a third of the entire library. The controller was also very unique although the control stick broke quite easily. Overall it was quality over quantity when it came to this masterpiece of a system, and because of high production costs this system never achieved the acclaim it deserved, but it still has a huge cult following for its amazing games you couldn't find anywhere else. - evoxpisces

I don't have the nostalgia for the N64 that many others do because I didn't grow up with it. However, I really respect it and how revolutionary it was. It brought 64-bit gaming to the table and 3D games were created. This system produced the most iconic games that everyone talks about today: Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Donkey Kong 64, Star Fox 64, and more. Other games on this system are great too and are either some of my favorites or at least are recognized as good games, like Paper Mario, Mario Kart 64, Mario Party 1-3, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Banjo-Kazooie, Diddy Kong Racing, Super Smash Bros., Bomberman 64, Pokemon Snap, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and more. The controller was pretty good, the cartridges were good, and it was not only a fantastic system but revolutionized gaming as we know it. Overall, this was one of the best consoles ever, although I may like the GameCube a little better (please don't hate me, we are all entitled to our ...more

4 PlayStation 3

The best ever. The Internet is free. It has Blue-Ray. Better games. Has not a tray. Looks cooler. Made by Sony. It is the best ever. I can't wait till PS4. Go PS3!

This has to be the first and 'ill tell you why:
1. It has bluray player.
2. CD's are much stronger.
3. It doesn't heat up like the xbox.
4. It doesn't scratch the discs.
5. Better graphics, by a lot.
7. It has all built in when the x box you havge to buy the stuff. For example: PS3=$300 HDMI(if you want it)=$40 That's it $340 but the xbox... Console=$300 Internet Router=$100 Xbox Live= $80 Charge and Play kit= $80( and if not buy batteries for the rest of your life) Anyway its $660 tax =$712 And again the pS3 its just $340 and it has bluray, built in wifi, free PSN and any usb it charges the controller. Its just perfect.
8. Faster procesor, and disc reader is faster.

This has got to be one of the most confusing comments I've ever read... - MasonOcker

Yeah go ps3 Uncharted, inFamous, God of war, Resistance, Killzone, etc... Way better then Xbox 360!

my favorite game is sonic and sega all stars racing sonic generations

5 Nintendo Wii

This Consoles has a ton of classics you can find nowhere else, Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Super Smash bros. Brawl, Mario Kart wii, donkey kong country returns, New super Mario bros wii, No More Heroes 1 and 2, and 2 of the greatest games of all time, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and The Legend of Zelda Skyward sword. It Popularized the motion controls while delivering Classic titles. It may not have the online or graphics of the PS3 or 360, but this Console Provides some of the best games you will ever play and provides ours of fun for both hardcore and casual gamers

Nintendo DS too! Hey, I don't want to sit on my arse all day shooting people's guts out! Nintendo's pretty much non-violent with the best games out there! GET ACTIVE! GET WII!
Quality of games over quantity of blood/gore. - Oreanta

I remember when it first came out, I'ts one of the main parts of my childhood. I really miss having one.. So nowadays they are a lot cheaper. I see them at Walmart and they are only 100$ there. And I'd consider them sort of worthless now because my big brother sold a Wii at a Pawn Shop for only 10$ - UnicornWerewolf

Iconic. It was huge at the time of it's release, and was praised for being a cheap, quality console that was different and had plenty of great games on it. I still play it today and it should be 1! - micahisthebest

6 Nintendo Entertainment System

Sony consoles only make sports games,
Xboxs are ok, but kinda the same as sony,
And almost all new games suck!

But the amazing nes kicked every consoles ass back then, and it still kicks ass today.
Nintendo could have kept this console going and these 8 bit graphics would beat the heck out of the stupid shooters, repetitive zombies, and EXTRA repetitive sports.


This console revitalized the video game industry, introduced some classic game franchises (Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, exc. ), made a controller that would be the basic design of each controller since and had a strict licensing policy with third-party developers

Damn dude, I thought that this would be number one and its not even in the top Ten. This was the console that saved video games people... Though I do have to say that the NES has the most frustrating and difficult games that I have ever played, and I've played a lot of them. So far I have beaten Contra with the 30 lives cheat and that's it.

What in the world?! How is this not #1, after you do some history, you'll regret placing the NES at number 6, Nintendo (and probably Sega) revitalized the gaming market after the game crash of 1983-84, and the games that were released on the NES were amazing, you'll find big ass classics released for the console. Considering that the NES revived the game market, the new consoles today and the past were all thanks to Nintendo.

7 Super Nintendo

The SNES is the greatest system ever with no real close second. Honestly, I would put Xbox 360 as my second, but for how long... When the next system comes out with more features and better graphics then it will more than likely take the number 2 spot. That's the problem with systems from the N64 forward, they become more of a spectacle than a gaming experience. I love the N64 but when I think of some of my favorite games like goldeneye, super Mario, and star fox they just aren't that fun anymore cause why play goldeneye when games like halo are way more incredible. Innovative yes, but it the next system one ups it every time. Don't get me wrong there are still some fabulous N64 games like super smash bros which beats out the GameCube and Wii versions. Now that I've explained why none of the systems will never hold up to the next big thing I'll explain why the SNES will never be topped. When I think of my favorite SNES games growing up super Mario world, donkey kong country 1 and 2, ...more

Easily the best. Link to the past, Mario world, super metroid, Mario all stars, super castlevania IV, Donkey Kong Country and the dozens of th greatest RPGs ever. Man this console is legendary.

P. S: How much ignorance is there to have the ps3 and Xbox 360 first? I mean they're great but not the best ever. And the PSP at number 9?! The psp is AWFUL. It has no games, sure it's well built but the games is where it matters. And why isn't the NES at least in the top 10. I mean come on. Y you SO IGNORANT INTERNET! Sorry, just needed that to subside... - dudesterravensfan

The best RPG's ever were released on the SNES. Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, A link to the Past, Earthbound and Super Metroid. Consoles are not about their hardware or their capabilities. What makes a console great is the games. What makes a game great is not the graphics... It's the submersion. The music, the stories, the characters... No console has ever engaged me like the SNES.

The NES should be number one considering the impact it had on video games, but I would have to go with the SNES on this one because of the awesome games. I usually judge consoles by the quality of their games. No decent games=no decent console. The games for the SNES where the pinnacles of their franchise when they came out. Zelda, metroid, Castlevania, Megaman, Mario, and many other franchises saved some of their finest games for this console.

8 PlayStation 1

The Best Video game console of all time! The number and quality of great games made this one to being able to crash its oponnents in 90's!

Digimon world three an amazing game buy it and love it. - wizard

I have the first two Rayman games, Hogs of War and a PS3.Yes, the PS3 is backwards-compatible.

The best game console ever. Oh yeah it's true because of ps1 the generation of games have been discovered. I still remember when I was small I use to play ps1 everyday 5 hours. Although I own a ps2 and psp but I still miss my those days when I was crazy for my ps1.

9 PlayStation 4

Great games. That feel as you bring Dualshock 4 in your hands... it's amazing

Shut up you haters this is the best console and if it doesn't turn off right its your fault by turning it off badly

It's a great system, with a decent game library, a massively improved controller, impressive game graphics, all that good stuff. It's a damn shame that you now have to pay to go online and access many of the features that the new games have, plus, now you have to come over to the actual system to turn it on, not good at all. Sony is really starting to turn PlayStation into their very own Xbox.

No this thing sucked I hate it and there are better consoles like the Wii and Xbox - StumpyFox-09

10 GameCube

The Gamecube has probably the largest collection of unique, interesting, and just fun-filled games of any console, like Luigi's Mansion, Super Mario Sunshine, and LoZ: Wind Waker. The controller is made very well. It feels comfortable and the way to hold it is intuitive, especially compared to the controller of its predecessor, the N64. The Z-button takes advantage of your right index finger, which allows for interesting controls and helps you make less mistakes because it lessens the amount of you have to do with your thumb, which is a big problem with a lot of consoles. The removable memory card is very useful for many reasons. If your Gamecube were to break, you won't lose all your saved games because you can just take out the memory card and put it in a new Gamecube (as long the problem didn't mess up the memory card or make it so you can't remove it for some reason). You can bring it to a friend's house, so you can play the games with him/her/them and bring all your progress in ...more

This little cube was my childhood. All the different games on this consoles were just the best. Games like Mario Party 4, 5, 6 and 7 and Super Smash Bros. Melee made my childhood.

While the Nintendo 64 had many of the most iconic games, and it may be considered the best Nintendo console or even best console of all time, the GameCube is still fantastic and its games shouldn't be overlooked. The controllers are cool and are easy to hold and use, maybe more than the N64, and it is similar to Xbox and PlayStation controllers but possibly more fun to use. The game library is fantastic. First of all, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is my FAVORITE GAME OF ALL TIME. It combines the fun and simplicity of Mario with the depth, story, immersion, and complexity of an RPG game, making it friendly to fans of just Mario, which is how I got into it. In addition, it has other great games like Super Mario Sunshine, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Luigi's Mansion, Mario Kart: Double Dash!, Mario Party 4-7, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (also on the Wii), Pikmin and Pikmin 2, the original Animal Crossing, and Metroid Prime. Wow! Also, if ...more

Possibly the best 1st party games to date. Super Mario Sunshine, The first Luigi's mansion, Wind Waker, Double dash, Multiple Mario party games, and a pretty great controller. The Wii is also an awesome console. - Slither

The Contenders

11 Sega Dreamcast

The Dreamcast was the last true "gaming" console. In a generation when consoles were slowly starting to shift into becoming more of an all around entertainment machine that could also play games (further amplified with the next generation), the Dreamcast was all about the games and nothing more. Despite its rather short lifespan (1998-2001), the library of games that came out still rank amongst some of the best the gaming industry has seen. There's a game for just about any genre you can think of, and a game for just about any genre that's worth playing. It was also one of the first consoles to bring online gaming to the masses, helping to kickstart a new wave of gaming for many with the consoles that came after it. Featuring a unique "VMU" (a memory card with a screen and buttons, making it its own handheld gaming device), a plethora of interesting peripherals, and a dominant focus on its gaming library, it truly was a swansong for Sega, letting them go out of the hardware business ...more - BloodyThunderX

A game console with excellent games that had excellent atmosphere. Also had Visual Novels where anime characters looked good. - BetterSkatez

Ahead of its time, it was the first console to have full internet access, online play and the first and only home console to have a screen in the memeory stick which is also in the controller, truly the masterpiece of videogame home consoles

The NES is above the dreamcast? hold on lemme go get my bleach so I could die. - Kerbiman123

12 Xbox One

Brilliant console. Everything about this console is brilliant, particularly the new controller which is literally perfect for a controller and sits perfectly in the hands. From its very first year, the Xbox One has had fantastic games, and it has a lot of potential to grow like the 360 did. The console's power is shown when making downloads, which it does literally over 10x faster than the 360 does. And those graphics are sublime, truly beautiful, so much so that I'll stop playing from time to time just to observe the graphics of the environments, which often gets you killed on the multiplayer of Call of Duty:Ghosts, which DOES have brilliant graphics on the Xbox One, despite that whole 720p fiasco.

People keep saying the Xbox One is "rubbish" and that the "PS4 is better", but to those people I say "get a life". Because if all you do with your life is talk bad about the opposition because you're a Sony fanboy/fangirl, then I have no time for you. Lets face it, both the PS4 and ...more - EvilAngel

This console is awesome it can play bluray movies and has good games and good graphics It should be in top 3.

The games aren't as legendary as the 360's but it's still very powerful and you can play almost every good 360 game through backward compatibility

Does not deserve as much hate as it is getting. Definitely a great system, none the less brilliant than it's predecessor, the Xbox 360. The graphics on this system are simply beautiful. It's not a system where you buy ten games in one day. You want to take your time to thoroughly enjoy one game on it, before buying or playing the next. Titanfall was brilliant. Although it lacked a story and extra game modes (such as Call of Duty's zombies and special ops) the graphics were amazing, and the game itself was fun. A good way to kill time. My personal favorite on the console was Dead Rising 3 (an exclusive to the system until the steam release was announced much after the Xbox One release). This game was just brilliant. I could play it for hours just slaying the undead. I loved it, and cannot wait for the Grand Theft Auto V Xbox One edition and am also very excited about Battlefront, and I hope to own Thief one of these days as well.

13 Nintendo Wii U

I don't know why people hate this system so much. It a great system.

Even though games like Minecraft and Terraria will never be updated again on this system, it containes absolute MASTERPIECES like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (look it up; it's on there, I actually have it). Not only that, but it ALSO supports Wii software, too!

OH MY GOD! I AM SICK WITH PEOPLE SAYING Nintendo IS A STUPID RIPOFF and Xbox is KING! The Wii U is the best console in this era and plus, every Nintendo and almost every PlayStation console is innovative. Here's some examples:

NES: Saved the Gaming Industry. Gave us popular characters like Mario and Zelda.
Game Boy: Started Mobile Gaming
PS1: Had the first REAL 3D console even though it was only 32 bits.
N64: Changed the way we game. Analog Stick, four-player multiplayer, Rumble Pack (also the thing that makes controller vibrate. )

PS2: Introduced BACKWARDS compatibility, introduced DVD IN A GAMING CONSOLE!
DS: Introduced a second screen on a handheld.
WII: Introduced motion control (the PSmove and Kinnect are ripoffs of the Wii).
PS3: Innovated gaming with multimedia, Shopping, Free Online, BLU RAY PLAYER!
Wii U: Introduced a Controller that you can SNEAK in some playtime without letting everyone in his room know what you're doing with actual games ...more - recaller

Wanna know y this is the best because u can make charters and play with them in a lot of games also there is more slots to put games in than Xbox or ps4 also it's a OG now try to tell me that another console is better

14 Nintendo 3DS

Oh god no! Their browser is crap and their games are crap as well! - OnyxtheOcelot

No! this breaks down in less than 2 days. Get the Switch higher than this! - StumpyFox-09

The Switch is better than this, but it doesn't break down in less than 2 days. Unless ya break it - TheAwesomeDude54

I have one and it's the best thing in the world it should be the the best portable game system in the world but I also think it should be number 1 in the list if you vote you will be a lucky lucky person.

Super Mario 3D land, Mario Kart 7, many other good games. I still play on my 3DS. - Slither

15 Nintendo DS

Amazing selection of games.Paved the way for portable consoles.

How is this not in the top 5? I had this when I was younger and it was what made me interested in video games in the first place! It's graphics were good at the time, it had some great games like Pokemon: Black&White and New Super Mario Bros., and a ton of other Pokemon games, and it was the first good handheld device! The design was good good and it had a working mic. It was the first handheld game to let you talk to other people in a close radius. This should be number 4, 3, or 2. The playstation is the only other console better than this.

The DS could play some of our fave pokemon games! So who wouldn't like it right? And it's portable it has really good graphics and yeah ;) but I still think it doesn't match up with all the other consoles that aren't portable like the PS3, Nintendo 64 or even the XBOX 360 -. - who would think a portable game console would match up with something like that?

This goes first for the clash of the portable game consoles for me ;) :D

Worth mentioning, A handheld console, it has fun games (the brain games series where and are still unique, creative, and fun learning).
It also had some of the best Castlevania titles out there, a true masterpiece free of "gimmicks" such as the 3DS, in a era where it was more important to make the games good, than making them graphically superior or give in to said gimmicks. Contra 4 was fantastic and that is only the tip of the iceberg, this console is not the best, but certainly one of the very best ones.

16 Sega Genesis

Simply the best gaming console ever. Simplicity is the key! Simple controls but great gameplay on lots of games.

I'll never forget (and still play) classics like the Sonic series, Streets of Rage 2 3, Story of Thor, Wonderboy in Monsterworld, Soleil, Landstalker, Comix Zone... And the list goes on and on. Number 1 for sure!

The Genesis is criminally underrated. That's saying something when you consider that so many people love it. It's still underrated.

A Sega masterpiece, great library of games like Mortal Kombat or Golden Axe and has a charm that will never be forgotten

Handhelds are not consoles & shouldn't be on the list. The Genesis, despite ironically not being even close to SEGAs first console, put their name on the map & established them as an actual threat to Nintendo, the then giant. Not a bad console at all, but I like Super Nintendo more.

17 Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo switch is the best console to ever exist. amazing games that you can't find on any other system, like super mario maker 2, super mario Odyssey, legend of zelda breath of the wild, super smash bros ultimate, mario kart 8 deluxe, and the library keeps on growing. animal crossing new horizons came out last night so that is also on the list - mariomannmineecraft

I like that Nintendo is being creative with their consoles and trying new things. While Sony and Microsoft's consoles just have better graphics with the same controllers, same games, same characters. Nintendo is constantly introducing new ideas that Sony and Microsoft keep ripping off. They saved video games with the NES, created Super Mario 64, which completely revolutionized 3D gaming, and created Motion Controls, which Sony and Microsoft BOTH ripped off. They have over 20 game series, because they keep coming up with new ideas. All I see advertised for the Playstation and the Xbox are sports games and shooters. In Nintendo ads you see creativity. Instead of yet another map where you headshot everyone you see, you shoot ink to try to cover the most ground. Instead of another DVD console who's design is ripped directly from the design of the Wii, you get a screen with a port, so you can play on the T.V. or on the smaller screen if you want to play while the T.V. is being used. The ...more - TheInsomniac

my friend is holding a gun to my head and forcing me to vote for it

These game should be in the top "3 how is it here.I brought mine yesterday and the games on it especially legend of Zelda breath of the wild is breath taking

18 Xbox

The best console ever built. Microsoft's Magnum opus & first console. Here's why:

1. Hardware

I don't feel the need to mention X-Box live, since that's a given. Unlike the terrible 360, the X-Box will never get a Red Ring Of Death. There exists a super rare Orange Ring Of Death, but you'll likely never live to see lt. The X-Box is very ingenious in being the first to combine a console & a computer, hence the name, DirectX-Box. Having four ports, which is where the PS2 went wrong, is a huge plus. Over 50,000 blocks of memory basically means you'll never run out. I never have. Unlike the atrocious 360, they don't even sell memory cards or hard drives for the X-Box, because you'll never need one.

2. Remotes

By far, Controller S is the most comfortable remote ever made. It perfects the comfortable, but still somewhat straight PlayStation remote & curves the plastic to your hands. And lt takes out those confusing Sony features, such as having four bumpers & the ...more

everyone only hates it for controller, which got a better model. JUST GET THE S CONTROLLER, THEN IT'S REALLY GOOD. - myusernameisthis

This thing had good graphics in the day. The Duke controller featured a huge XBOX logo, which was awful. It worked but wasn't the best thing. - Slither

What why is this so low the xbox is like the most badass game console in the 6th generation I mean xbox live the best online to date but way better than xbo60 not only that but they had halo 1 and 2, a game that every sony or nintendo fanboy that really wanted to see or play this game

19 Game Boy

I like this game very much especially punch king

Great handheld. Unfortunately it has one of the most crappy LCD screen I have ever seen.

I can already here the Pokemon theme in my head!

I own this and play it till this day

20 PSP

it's PORTABLE, it has better graphic then anyother portable devices, it has a wide bigger screen, and of course it has UMD, on a ps3 you can put music videos, games, and music on the ps3, you can prlly pull it out, during class time or in detention, or even at grannys house when there's nothing to do LOL!, the device has also sold over 68 million units as of January 2011, the screen is NOT small like the nintendo ds... it DOESN'T need a touch screen... the graphic looks MORE REAListic (however you spell it), you can play LOTS of the Playstion 2/3 games on this LITTLE device... you can go ANYWHERE with this, it's like an mp3 player a playstation 2, and a picture veiwer all in ONE, ALSO the internet on here is GREAT, sometimes this year, you can WATCH youtube on here, it's prlly going to happen at the end of the year, I personaly think this is better than ANY OTHER DEVICE, juss keep buying ALOT of games, buy a REALLY good memory card, those PSP go's are POINTLESS, they KINDA suck.. ...more - SmoothCriminal

I remember playing LittleBigPlanet for HOURS on this thing. - Jackinabox

psp is just awesome and is the best gadget I ever had. its portable with cool graphics and games like god of war ghost of sparta.

Small and portable. Easy to use. Has great graphics for a portable device and can ply music and whatch videos. Also you can go online and do almost anything. Why get a Nintendo ds with some fancy touch screen and stupid graphics when you could have a bigger screen with better graphics. Better internet experiences and play loads of amazing games. Has to be THE best console around and its portable.

21 GameBoy Advance

This is still the best handheld (especially the SP model). An amazing library of games AND backwards compatibility with all GB and GBC games? That's a miracle!

My fondest memories are of the game boy advance and I spent hours playing this and couldn't put it down when I first got it such a brilliant console.

While it probably doesn't deserve a spot in the top five, it is pretty much the best early handheld gaming console. It gives you access to all 3 generations of GameBoy games, it's packed with portable versions of Super Nintendo games, and it has an epic array of multiplayer options, such as Four Swords and Advance Wars. This console deserves your vote.

Vast Catalog spanning all eras & genres - robust & portable - this is my No1! Beauty!

22 PC

Who knew a bunch of letters on a keyboard could play games so good? - Yeoss

Pc is not a console and any sometimes its good for games
PS4,Xbox 1 And Nintendo switch sould be the top three not those block head consoles

Even it ain't a console it is still best thing ever created for games

Why is this on this list? This isn't a console and if this was a pc/console list pc would be at 1 - LuckyLeftist

23 Sega Saturn

The Sega Saturn is really underrated. It deserves more love then it gets. - Kerbiman123

Love it because of games like sega rally or tomb raider

Like the Sega Genesis it has good library of games and a good controller

Number one should be the saga dreamcast number two should be the saga genesis number three should be the ps3 and number four should be the Nintendo 64 and number five should be the saga saturn

24 Atari 2600

It may be awful now, but you must respect it created all the games above this. Playstation 2 is so overrated, I can't even remember anything original about it. When this came out, a lot of people had one, and now there's a handheld that I play now. NES may have saved the gaming industry, but without this, video games would barley be a thing.

I still play my Atari 2600 now and I've had it since 1982 I think it was. Maybe slightly later by a year :D

Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Commodore C64 are also 2 I still have and they both work. Atari's are the best by far in my honest opinion

If it wasn't for Atari we wouldn't be where we are today

Atari the loved name of the 80s the era where there is no internet and it has a good library of games and charm that will never be compared with

25 Nintendo GameCube

Someone needs to fix this list. Both the Wii and Gamecube show up twice, and PC is on here, and that isn't a console. - Smash64

I use to have one as a kid

Amazing. GIMME - Ryboy

26 Wii

Wii is not gross the Wii amazing sony pervert!

Wii is already on here. - Smash64

Sad You Need batteries

Don't know why people hate it it is completly unique and exclusive

27 Xbox One X

Great console and great community great for playing ark survival evolved and watching netflix and youtube on your T.V. with almost no problems, and as of recently now we can use external storage devices for saves so this opens up a whole new book of possibilities. - sketcherskt

In terms of capacity and graphics, this is the most powerful console of all time, however it has not been out long enough to really become classic like its 360 brother. - ClassicLover

Graphics shouldn't determine the better console I'm sticking with my Xbox 360.

If somehow PlayStation manages to copy this console like they have always done... - Metallic_Lore

28 Xbox One S

This is the Xbox one but better all the 360 games are compatible. Whoever made this list just likes the Gay Station

Yeah! I love this console! First console, wasn't much of a gamer when I got it so not too sure how to react but then I got some games and gosh is that controller good.

A not so expensive, but a much better improvement from the original Xbox One

Best Xbox one made so far, very reliable, and great graphics.

29 Nintendo DSi

I know it's a from of ds but I just felt it should have its own category - browney115

a very fun hand held system!

The best things about this thing is the camera and Flipnote Studio - Pokemonfan10

Probably the most underrated on the list

30 New Nintendo 3DS XL

Has an amazingly large amount of titles that can be expanded with CFW, comfortable form factor, and has better 3D than the original models. Also, Xenoblade is on here. Can play any DS game, but has region locking, which is the one real issue with the game.

I have this do any of you play pokemon sun - TENTACRUEL



31 Gameboy SP

My very first console. It was the smallest and lightest one I ever had.
With Pokemon Sapphire and a bunch of other games, it was epic!

My first console so many fond memories playing gems like Donkey Kong Country and Mario Kart: Super Circuit. Holds a special place in my heart.

It was my first console I still have and second overall. My original was a gba but I gave it to my cousins. I love how you can play original gameboy games on it. Pokemon red!

Did you mean... Game Boy Advance SP?

32 Nintendo DSi XL

Had a huge collection of games marketed to girls (Moxie Girlz, Barbie, Nickelodeon, Disney Princess, American Girl, Bratz, Wizards of Waverly Place, That's So Raven, Winx Club, Monster High, etc). - welliewishersfan78

You can see all your favorite games on a bigger and better screen!

Amazing system and awesome games

PlayStation vita was way better

33 Magnavox Odyssey

Not terribly fun, but it should at least be recognized for what it is: the speak that started the fire we now know as home video games.

It actually isn't really that good anymore and it only has about 12 games, but it was the first home console, so it deserves a spot on this list!

You said it isn't good anymore so do you mean it should be on the worst list? - soulard

Come on it's the original

The one who started all the market, presenting Magnavox Odyssey the pioneer of video game consoles - CerealGuy

34 Neo Geo

Maybe this would be an awesome system if it was less than $650, with games costing less than $200 and up! What was SNK thinking when they released this system? Each Neo Geo AES game costs more than a Nintendo Wii. The price of a Neo Geo and its games is insane!

A classic masterpiece of SNK and of course the 90s style games that are for the Neo Geo - CerealGuy

It brought arcade games to our eyes

I prefer Neo Geo CD than AES, because I need CD music quality!

35 Steam Machine

The Steam Machine is great! People say it had been a huge downfall in gaming, but I say this console crosses the a good way.

36 Nintendo DS Lite

Its more sleak and compact its more better than the original ds

I have one. I don't like it. I don't love it. It's more than that.

_Great battery life.
_Really awesome game library.
_Pocket size.

my favorite console of all time the ds lite

37 Nintendo 3DS XL


Meh. just a weird dual screen.


38 New Nintendo 3DS

It's the same as ds but 3d to be honest only the new XL is worth it -tcplay

Here are the differences;
You can now view 3D content from every side! The new buttons are the C-Stick, and the ZL and ZR buttons! It's still backwards compatible with the aging 12 year old DS hardware! The CPU is stronger, and the battery life is better! The game slot has been relocated to the base. The camera has even better 1080p quality! It even now has built-in Amiibo and NFC support! Nintendo is the best!

39 Atari

The original console besides pong

40 GameBoy Color

I have a purple one modded with a front-lit screen. Love it to death! - llamakalamari

I wish I had Super Mario Bros. Deluxe for this

Home to the Pokemon series. Pokemon Gold/Crystal... Need I say more?
Pokemon for the win!

I have Super Mario Bros Deluxe for it! It is awesome!

41 Sega CD

Not a game console. The Sega CD is actually a CD add-on to the Sega Genesis with full-motion video, higher-quality sound, and sharper sprites.

I own a sega cd and to be honest most of you people only have it on the lists because of avgn and some of you haven't even played the games sure the fmv ones are cheesy and boring this add on doesn't really show off anything new except video and better sound but some games are actually good like silpheed robo aleste snatcher sonic cd earthworm jim the best port of final fight terminator

42 Mad Catz M.O.J.O.

Best gtame system ever made

43 Game Boy Advance SP

I have one I'm 11 I use it everyday

I still play with mine. - Smash64

44 Sega Master System

Loved Alex the kid built in game and of course sonic, got this after my spectrum so this console seemed amazing at the time, loved it.

My first console which will always have a special place in my heart. Many hours of fun playing built-in Alex the Kidd.

Alex Kidd series is cool!

45 NES Classic Edition

I have this at home it is amazing it has amazing games like mega man 2

Great system and modding it is as easy as plugging in a cable! - myusernameisthis

ROB - ElephantEric

Ye it's the best nintendo console... Now smaller and 30 classics this will become more selled than the ol‘ one!

46 3DO

The early age of 3D gaming where imagination still ruled game design (Killing Time anyone? ) and anything was possible. Modern games can be so boring...

Even though it's a commercial failure but the 3DO manage to be on the list for the result of 3d games, good library of games and great controller but it has some flaws like its expensive price and its hard to find a working 3DO but it has an charm that you need to know

This game is garbage and old in the 90,s

Ok it has disc drive but worse

47 Kindle Fire

I have one. After one year of experience, it deserves to be higher. - Top10Masterz

The store is hell for gamers. - myusernameisthis

This is the superior method of gaming.

It was a ok system. Nothing a amazing.

48 Nintendo 2DS

Pain in the butt to carry around with me due to it not being foldable, but other than that I love it. I take it everywhere with me anyways. - llamakalamari

I prefer this over anything else. It is the same as a 3Ds, but some features are different. I don't get how this is in the 40's

I have one and it works very well and I have not broken it at all. I've had multiple normal ds consoles that have broken - WinchesterGirl26

Why the heck is this down here? I have one and I love it!

49 TurboGrafx 16

This thing truly held it's own against the Mega Drive, but Sega won for me in the end. Still a cool little beast is the TurboGrafx 16.

The first 16-bit console

I have a PC-Engine and it was my first touch of video games, and my first kiss.

50 Master System

The master of all things!
