Best Video Game Consolesanonymous
The Top Ten
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.
This console owns by far. You don't understand how good it is until you get it. Everybody I've asked who has a wii but not an xbox 360 but has played it says wiis better. But wii is boring, its aimed at little kids rather than teens who like to shoot stuff. I have a playstation 3 too. I prefer the xbox pads to the ps3 pads simply because, the triggers are better for shooters.
Overall, wii good for kids, xbox good for teens in need of a great shooter, ps3 average on both... Xbox 360 wins! - lezakattack
Best online multiplayer, best controller, best games, HD graphics, a hard drive, voice communication...
WOW! Am I lucky that I did not get the Red Ring Of Death!
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
PS3 is great but I'll never get tired of the PS2 because it's brilliant
PS2 was the first console I ever had and compared to XBOX 360 it has more fun games and it is less in prise and it goes on for like 7 yearsV 149 Comments
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.
9. NO HDMI.
Yeah go ps3 Uncharted, inFamous, God of war, Resistance, Killzone, etc... Way better then Xbox 360!
Xboxs always have problems these are betterV 360 Comments
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.
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
Just because it's Nintendo's first 3D console doesn't make it there best console. GameCube was a big step up from the 64. The only reason super Mario 64 is considered one of the best games of all time is because everyone excited to see Mario in 3D for the first time. Mario sunshine was more fun and had a better story line. The can said for wind weaker, Pokémon collasium, double dash, melee and f zero gx. All GameCube games are better versions n64 games. People are just obsest with seeing the first 3D Nintendo that they don't realize the n64 games their playing aren't nearly as fun as GameCube games. N64 will always be the most overrated console of all time.V 115 Comments
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
OH MY GOSH I'm SICK OF PEOPLE SAYING Nintendo WENT DOWNHILL WITH THE 64! Sure, third party support started favoring the more powerful PlayStation, but first party, aka games that are actually Nintendo, never wavered. Ocarina of time is currently the second most critically acclaimed game of all time, only narrowly beaten out by super Mario galaxy. Look it up on gamerankings if you don't believe me. The Wii is the best because 1: The name is not stupid, although Revolution would have been a better name, and 2: it had such awesome games. Super Smash bros Brawl, the best Zelda game, Twilight Princess, and my favorite games, Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Nintendo is declining in popularity for no reason but you no what the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (not put together) only sold 80 percent as well as the Wii! So yeah SUCK IT Nintendo HATERS! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Trust me, it gets a lot of hate as well! A lot of people that I know hate it for the graphics! - HeavyDonkeyKong
This console is my childhood. It has some of the best Nintendo games and some of the best games ever in general. Nothing more to say. Xbox 360 is very close behind though.V 99 Comments
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.
Why is the Xbox 360 above this?!? It has my favorite game (which is earthbound) and it's got other amazing games like a link to the past! This should be number one!V 52 Comments
HOLY CRAP! HOW IS THIS AT LEAST NOT IN THE TOP 5?
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.
(I don't care about hd poop and blu crap. BRING BACK THE GOOD DAYS, AND VOTE FOR THE CONSOLE THAT CHANGED THE WORLD! GO NES! )
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.
No snes no n64 no Xbox 360 no Wii and no ps2 with out the NESV 58 Comments
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.
I like how people are already voting for this thing. Not to say that it's bad, just, why so soon? I'm sorry, but a good controller, impressive specs, and, like, two exclusives worth playing does not put this thing above, say, the DS or Dreamcast.
Its games has the best graphics than any other games
In my opinion it is a great console to use it is just hard to use the controllerV 184 Comments
Digimon world three an amazing game buy it and love it. - wizard
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.
This console was responsible for the change from cartriges to Discs, therefore the best console ever! Plus it has a massive games library, including all the good crash bandicoot games and the original tony hawk games, BEST CONSOLE EVER! - dragon13304
The best! - ChuckECheeseV 68 Comments
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
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
Certainly the greatest console, withTHE BEST controller. It features many great games: Super Mario Sunshine (Not as bad as everyone says) Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (My favorite RPG EVER better than Symphonia, Pokemon, and even Skyrim) Super Smash Bros. Melee (Best fighting game, makes Mortal Kombat look like a joke) Wind Waker and Twilight Princess (Two of the best adventure games) and Metroid Prime (Its amazing control scheme makes it, please don't kill me, better than Call of Duty. ) I also have a Wii, (It's not as bad as you think, you just need some good games) and a PS3. Most of my friends have an X-box 360, which I absolutely hats.
Peach sucks but I don't remember her ever getting angry! Stop hating on the Gamecube people! PLEASE! The Gamecube is amazing in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong
The GameCube was my first console back in 2010 when my cousins gave it to me when they got their lame Xbox 360 and you just don't get games like you did on GameCube anymore! Anyone remember Shrek Smash And Crash Racing?V 71 Comments
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.
3DS is very cool, to be honest. I have one myself, and I love the great features it has. Like, the being able to surf the internet. Or download like, Netflix for free, and other awesome stuff
Does this mean you can download videos, movies to the 3ds or its only streaming?
Of nintendo handhelds this is the best, nes classics, ds because 3ds games whats not to like why does anybody like the vita which has no games the vita is good... But is horrible in comparison too this
Oh yeah playing smash brothersV 49 Comments
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
no other console was as innovative and fun as the dreamcast.
nothing new has happened in the gaming world since the dreamcast, only ideas being copied of of it.
This was by far the best console. Innovative, fun, and an unbelievable library of games. This console has the fewest crappy games of any console. This was also the first console that allowed for online gameplay right out if the box. Also, how is the Xbox 360 number one? It's a piece of crap that red rings after 2 months
Great crazie taxies and gaunlet gamesV 39 Comments
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!
A Sega masterpiece, great library of games like Mortal Kombat or Golden Axe and has a charm that will never be forgotten
The Genesis is criminally underrated. That's saying something when you consider that so many people love it. It's still underrated.
NO! It created that terrible game Shaq-Fu!V 19 Comments
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.
The 360 was great, but this isn't too much better. I'd buy it if it was backwards compatible
Actually, no. It's one of the worst.
First of all, this console is too big if you don't have space. It feels like it has been ripped off a T.V.. Second of all, no backwards compatibility. I usually go with Nintendo because they do backwards compatibility with their console which is a minor thing. Third of all, the kinnect sucks and it feels like you have been spied. Finally, it focuses more on T.V. and things that a PC would have only that it's more frustrating to operate and the games are boring. What do you have Microsoft? I mean you have nothing left on your hands. Microsoft is done once and for all. - recaller
WHY DO PEOPLE HATE THIS?!?V 118 Comments
I don't know why people hate this system so much. It a great system.
I am not a Fanboy of nintendo, but it should be it the top ten of the list.
I have been a gamer since the 80's and enjoy gaming till this very day, between me and the kids we have the ps4, Xbox one and the wiii u, along with a lot of the older consoles I still play too this day that are pulled out of storage from time to time for some retro fun I have to say the most played console at home is the wifi u, there isn't a lot of games but there are many great games, I can't believe how some of the games look compared to the more powerful consoles, Nintendo and others really know how to utilise the specs their givin and the games are so fun to play, we love it, this console is gonna have legendary status in time just like my beloved dreamcast, my suggestion is even if you have a ps or Xbox get one for a completely different gaming experience
It's the best wii console ever and the Nintendo Swtich to.V 92 Comments
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.
"Nintendo is for kids", PS and XBOX are "awesome".
-Kids (stupid ones in fact)
And that's why the new generation is going to suck a lot. Like if you think the same or you're a kid that's a Nintendo fan (if they exist now).
The best console ever built. Microsoft's Magnum opus & first console. Here's why:
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.
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
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
Really fun and original remember getting it when I was younger at christmas and screamed
Should be higher than Xbox one and PS4. It's a lot more powerful than the PS2, and has better games like Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and has a much better controller. It also had Xbox Live before the whiny 7 year olds took over online gaming.V 14 Comments
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
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.
This is totally is probably the 3rd best or even second best AT LEAST because guys come on the wii is horrible! And the nintendo 64 for is so OLD and boring. Which no one has. Plus, the Psp is a great handheld with very inexpensive games in Eb games. Which are still REALLY good. Like Rachet and clank : size matters. Also, PSP includes violent and Non violent gamings. So almost any age can play it. And lets face it, I bought a PSP for only $160, which included a memory stick for 8gb and 2 games!
My bro wanted a wii so bad and when he got it, he hated it for all the glitches and bad quality. SO great job SONY on this console, I truly support your work on this one! Also Sony has great graphics also well maintained on the PSP!
YAH ITS BEST THANKS TO THE NEW UMD DISC TECHNOLOGYV 20 Comments
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.
Vast Catalog spanning all eras & genres - robust & portable - this is my No1! Beauty!
I personally get more enjoyment out of playing this incredible portable console than most home consoles it is simply awesome.
THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE I MEAN DOESN'T HAVE MEMORIES ON THE GBAV 16 Comments
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 dayV 2 Comments
