Gametrailers.com puts the top ten consoles together and counts them down.
we're #1...we're #1.. haha j/k. It was a pretty nice list, brought back a lot of memories.
That was a pretty good list. My two favorite consoles are SNES and PSX in no particular order. ahh, fond memories...
no xbox lol
Nothing gets pass you.
maybe 4 years from now the xbox360 would be on the list
Really hard to argue with this one. Let me preface this by saying that I found the Xbox decidedly underwhelming (grotesquely ugly, not enough good games etc. etc.), but I think, especially given the landscape of the industry, that it has to be credited with demonstrating that online belongs in the console market. That and the inclusion of a HDD (which they have mind-bogglingly flip-flopped on for the 360) definitely make the Xbox noteworthy in the history of the evolution of console gaming. #11 anyone?
Personally my all-time fave would have to be PS2. SO MANY great games! But I'd have to agree that the PS represents the most fundamental paradigm shift in console gaming and is deserving of the #1 spot.
Great video, I have to agree with the list, but NES should've been #1.
that little console saved our industry.
But PS was the first revolution in evolution that the industry did see.
but a good list non the less.
P.S. Wii should hurry and bring some Dreamcast games to the Virtual console seeing some of those games made me miss my Dreamcast.
PS1 changed a lot of peoples' perception towards gaming, that's why it truly deserved to be No.1... But then some of the others' should'nt even be there in the first place, they were merely picked for the reason of memorabilia - because a lot of them failed and that is not a good basis to give them these titles. Also a lot were hand-helds which I think is not categorized as true consoles.
go along ... there's no microsoft to see here ...
PS1 can have the top spot for FFVII alone. If you ever wanted to know what revolutinizing something is, look at what was around then and what was around after FF7. To this day some of those CS are still looking good 10 years, and 2 console gens later. My goodness!
yeah i think the NES is right up there #1/#2, i mean cmon what was before that, atari.. commadore. Such awesome games and franchises came from nintend. Also the light gun, they gyro thingamabober that came with the system, the power pad for olympics, the power glove, wireless controllers (even though mine sucked, some 3rd party cheap stuff), so many innovative gaming peripherals. All around awesome system, but true, ps1 did completely change the landscape of gaming
