This list is just bunk. IGN failed miserably on this entire series.

Blaze9293799d ago

Before all the rest of the "IGN FAILZ" comments..note this is just THEIR...ehem...OPINION.

Megaton3799d ago (Edited 3799d ago )

It's my opinion that their opinion fails.

"Atari 2600 > SNES/PS2" = Fail

Looks like NES will get the #1 spot. I can live with that. I wouldn't put it there, but I can see why someone would.

Danja3799d ago

Well yeah it's there opinion..

Iits also my opinion to say this list is crap and they obviously got it everything on this ere list wrong.

skwidd3799d ago

Seriously? PS2 is at number 3?! They failed in many things on this list. I give this an EPIC FACEPALM!!

Im not visiting your site ever again IGN. You're supposed to be gamers!! I need not recite why PS2 needs to at least be number 2.

Simon_Brezhnev3799d ago

If you dont think IGN is biased i dont know what to say. 1st 360 is supposely better then playstation 1 and that article PS3 is in last place in Japan.

I would have to have the 360 a few notches higher. Being the first high def gaming machine on the market opened up a whole new world of gaming for myself.

High resolution graphics and impressive graphics for that matter. Not only that but the world of online gaming has never been the same since it was released.

Sure, you can say that MS took bits and pieces from this and that but the truth is, they set the standard and raised the bar.

For that, I believe it deserves a bit more respect.

Personally, my first next gen. experience was playing Dead Rising. I have never seen anything like it. So many zombies on screen, complete freedom (for the most part) and a sense of humor that was right up my alley (stick toy masks and cones on zombies heads still has me laughing). The graphics were great.

When you look at what the 360 has bought to the table, I am very excited to see what is next. What innovations will Sony and MS and even Nintendo build upon this?

Boody-Bandit3799d ago

I have been gaming since my mom and dad bought me Pong from Sears in the late 70's. This list is arguably the worst list I have ever seen. Without question the SNES or PS2 should have been awarded the top spot.

I loved the 2600. It was one of my favorite consoles back in a day but no way should it be rated higher then the PS2 or SNES. We know the NES is going to get the top spot. Personally I wouldn't have it in my top 5.

IMO IGN just lost what little credibility they had left.
Isn't there a gaming site worth a damn anymore?

Knghtz3799d ago

How does one who reports gaming news lose credibility over an opinionated piece?

"They report gaming news but I don't like their opinion therefore they have no credibility!"

o.O

Defectiv3_Detectiv33799d ago

They did awards for E3, and they gave Alan Wake 'Best Action Platformer' over Uncharted 2 and GoW3. Funny thing is, Alan Wake's emphasis isn't even on Action, in the interview w/ the devs they have posted on their site they go on to say Alan Wake is supposed to be the Anti-Action hero(he does fight w/ a flashlight after all)

PshycoNinja3798d ago

not to be a fanboy but wow. IGN really doesn't like the PlayStation brand do they? IGN wouldn't be popular today if it wasn't for PlayStation. PS brought gaming to the masses. I think IGN forgets that.

I'm also tired of the 2 years without games consoles being called "teh great Game console crash" It was 2 f'ing years that we didn't have game consoles, get over it. It was bound to happen sooner or later, Nintendo just happend ro be the company to "save" the industry. Nintendo hasn't done much for the industry since the 64. But..... you know..... That's MY OPINION.

Hey if IGN is alowed to have their flawed opinion so can I.

5: Sega Genesis
4: SNES
3: PS2
2: Atari 2600

Number 1 will be the NES.

Discuss.

AliTheBrit3799d ago

I gotta say, I was sure PS2 would be 1.

SpoonyRedMage3799d ago

What could possibly be number 1, all the good ones have gone!

And how did the 2600 beat out the SNES and PS2!? No! Just No!

St03799d ago (Edited 3799d ago )

It's the NES http://uk.gear.ign.com/dor/...

Why do folk like SNES and NES better than Megadrive/Genesis, it had SO many more better games. Sonic 1,2,3, Streets of rage 1,2,3, Toejam and earl, RoadRash 1,2,3, Flashback, Ristar. and that's only a few! And WTF was up with the NES pad, it was square!! lol

SpoonyRedMage3799d ago

Ahh right! Well NES is alright at number one but Atari 2600 should not have been anywhere near number 2.

Homicide3799d ago (Edited 3799d ago )

The Atari 2600 was a big influence on the video game console industry. It was huge back in the day. That's how I got into gaming.

SpoonyRedMage3799d ago

It was my first console too. I actually have a few games just a couple of feet away and the console tucked away somewhere but it's nowhere near as good as the NES, SNES or PS2.

iamgoatman3799d ago

5-2? I wonder what could possibly be the number 1 spot. Are we going to get ANOTHER news article for the top spot? Give me a break.

Perhaps it's a chess board. It could still surprise us.

Christopher_Walken3799d ago

The Atari 2600 beat the PS2? What?
