Best Second Generation Video Game Consoles


The Top Ten

1 Atari 2600

Best console ever invented. Started the golden age of video games. Most successful console ever. Went for 16 years from 1977-1993. Very innovative at its time. - floridiancat

Had the second longest lifespan of any home video game console. (Longest was the Sega Master System 1985-Currently ongoing in South America) Had some classics that we all remember such as Pitfall, Kaboom, Space Invaders, Pong, SwordQuest, Adventure, Breakout, and various arcade ports

3 Intellivision

Overrated, claims to have better graphics than the 2600...It looks the same to me.

4 Magnavox Odyssey 2

Very underrated system. Not as good as the Atari 2600 or ColecoVision, but it's a good system.

5 Vectrex
6 Sega SG-1000
7 Fairchild Channel F
