its the nintendo and ps2...omg when gt5 comes its gonna b ps3

Spiderman3196d ago

Surely the 360 has to be in the top 5 purely because it was the first console to really take HD and online gaming to the mainstream.

Sony even said themselves the PS3 wasnt designed to be an online console like the 360 was. Online was an afterthough after HD. After realising that more and more people wanted online play they had to step up, which was ultimatly a good thing.

The early PS3's had the ability to play PS1 and PS2 games.

That alone means three generations of AAA titles in one console.

3 amazing consoles in one > 1 amazing console.

Its three times the awesomeness! :O

1. PS3
2. PS2
3. PS

All these were amazing.

My Wii however is the biggest waste of space in my house. Even the good games are let downt by a horrible control scheme and bad graphica.

This guy's website has been going for 2 weeks and everything he's posted has just been short opinion articles (My Favorite 360 Games, reviews of various games, Best Game Consoles of All Time, and other such crap... not one single article that touches on something going on in the industry, it's just one guy who opened up an Examiner site for himself and writes his opinion about some stuff).

Anybody that makes a "Top 5 Consoles Of All Time" type of list and includes any of the current-gen consoles is flame-baiting. Period. There's no way to do it without flame-baiting. Either people will disagree with the inclusion of one and not the other, or they'll disagree with the order, etc., it's just a ridiculous list to publish. Didn't we learn anything from the atrocious attempts to do this by IGN and GameDaily?

As if there is an actual official list. I really don't know why this specific writer's opinion is so important. Couldn't you just blog it? Now if the President wanted to give us a list, that would be neat.

Anyways, I think I would rank PS2 over N64 in terms of success, records, library, exclusives, etc. but I've never owned an N64 and it's my worthless opinion anyway...perhaps I shall write an article about my opinion and submit it to N4G!

HolyOrangeCows3196d ago


What? You didn't know about the Ranking Board? I thought everyone did.

-MD-3196d ago

N64 is without a doubt the best console ever.

Great list but I would have switched the places/consoles slightly.

1. N64
2. 360 ( - the hardware issues)
3. PS2 ( - the hardware issues)
4. PS1
5. Snes.

ryano232773196d ago (Edited 3196d ago )

1. PS2 (edit from #2)
2. PS3 (edit from #3)
3. N64 (edit from #1)
5. PS1

Honorable mention to my original gaming device (not a console)
Commodore 64

I actually only ever played Goldeneye on N64 - that I can remember.
Played alot of my fave franchises on PS2 - MGS, GTA, GOW, Madden

"I prefer the Xbox because of its great on line play, and friendly community. And in the end, this is all that matters."
I stopped reading right there because no, that`s not all that matters. Any real gamer could tell you that`s flat-out wrong.

Looks like a twelve-year old wrote this list. Too bad he's right.
