@DarkCharizard - Good list. We agree that the newer generation of consoles can't really hold up to its predecessors.
1.PS2 2.SNES 3.PS1 4.N64 5.PS3
@Kur0 - In our list, no one voted for the PS3. The only reason I didn't is I never truly got to own one and play it extensively. But if I had, it would of been on my own personal list. I'm glad you included it though.
Terrible list 1.PS2 2.NES 3.PS1 4.SNES 5.Sega Genesis
@lazertroy - I think your list is great. 3/5 systems you had were on our list. I think we agree more then you realize.
Why do people tend to think the 360 was the first to introduce online. The Dreamcast tried to make online a big thing before it met its demise. I'm pretty sure the Microsoft got their idea of Live from the Dreamcast.
PS2 also had online as well, just not as structured as Xbox Live. But I believe that is the point, like it or not Xbox Live gave online gaming a structure on consoles. Built up a community with friends lists, etc... which is why people credit it for it's online service. I like the "slew" of first party games though. Doesn't hold true today as much as it did in the past. Personally though my top two systems would be PS3 and PS2. Sure I enjoyed the heck out of the Nintendo 64, NES, etc... But I've never been more into gaming than I was on my PS2 and PS3.
my list goes like this 1:snes 2:ps2 3:dreamcast 4:sega genesis 5:ps3
i think the XBOX 360 gets placed before PS3 is because it was first out of the gate to do the things we like to do now. we like to see our friends lists and what games they are playing, many people picked it up because of its price when PS3 was still around the $500 mark, and because of that, many people play that and not the PS3, not to say the PS3 is bad at what it is doing and its fanbase, becuse i owned a ps3 before a 360, its just 360 does some stuff better.
I am interested in how Dreamcast tends to be forgotten about how ahead of the curve it was. Good list though.
Aww Bro I can't believe the PC wasn't number 1!!! Its survived the test of time and has the best control system of them all!!! :S Great list though, obviously the PS2 was massive!
Well the pc isn't technically a "console"...it's a computer that does gaming.
Atari should be first by default
with out it we might not have come so far
1.Nintendo 64 2.Sega Dreamcast 3.Sega Genesis/Mega Drive 4.Sega Saturn 5.Xbox 360 Its all opinion of course.
1.Wii-plays Old nes games snes n64 and plays game cube. 2.60 Gig ps3-plays ps1 ps2 and ps3. 3.Dreamcast-brought the arcade to your home. 4.Atari-... yepp.. 5.The Xbox- Had fun original games even tho you could get most on PC.
1.SNES 2.PS1 3.PS2 4.PS3 5.Mega Drive/Genesis
no one has a xbox 360 in there top 5 or a xbox lmao ps i have a 360 i love my 360
my list: PS3 Xbox (good old halo 2 days) Nintendo 64 Super Nintendo Nintendo NES
1.N64 2.SNES 3.Xbox 360 4.Xbox 5.PS2
1. N64 2. PS2 3. Dreamcast 4. PS3 (could go up the list if it keeps delivering) 5. SNES / MegaDrive (can't decide, loved em both) Honourable mention: Xbox - introduced a lot of neat features, but just wasn't supported long enough.
Problem: the 360 hasn't been ahead of the PS3 in sales since March or April. That is all.
Disagrees? Over what? The truth? C'mon, people. Don't be shy. If you disagree, you at least have a reason, right?
long live the Playstation 2
oh plz 1.PS2 2.DREAMCAST 3.SNES 4.SATURN 5.GENESIS
PS1 Genesis SNES PS2 GameCube
The PS2 is king, its the only last gen console left,it killed the Sega Dreamcast completely, and demolished the Xbox and Gamecube to the point in which those two system lifespans were cut early.Long live the king of the consoles. My List 1.PS2 2.PS3 3.NES 4.PS1 5.N64
SNES is the best gaming console of all time. Games were phenomenal. Kinda miss those days. :'/
1. PS2 2. PS1 3. GBA 4. Xbox 360 5. PSP
1. PS2 2. PS1 3. Snes 4. PS3 5. Sega Genesis
You have to preface whether it is hardware or enjoyment or are you a fan. PS3 60Gig is the best out the box system of all time with features without question but that is not what makes a system it is games. Top five will be debated but here is mine until this gen is complete. In my opinion a PS3 60 gig is the best system because of the backward compatibility and exclusive games. 1.PS2-too many good games from MGS,Ico Shadow,Okami,RE4... 2.PS1-the icon-SOTN,Crash,Spyro, true killer apps FF7,MGS 3.SNES- Mario,Zelda,FF3,SSF2,MK2,Mario RPG, 4.Genesis-Sonic,KidC,Golden Axe,STREETS OF RAGE(killerapp) 5.Dreamcast-Skies,2K sports, Sonic, Virtua,MSR,Grandia2
