PYB: A look back at five of the best game consoles released in history. If you beg to differ, please sound out below and give your top 5!
for those raised on joysticks, this is the ultimate list. a few contenders to the top five mentioned, but I cant agree more that the five have the most impact in the last few decades.
Change #5 with the N64 then we can agree on that ^^^
how did the N64 do better than the Wii? I always thought N64 was underrated and did not get enough momentum as the PS1.
Simple, it had Super Mario 64 as a launch title, the 1st ever proper 3D game. Then it had Ocarina of time and Goldeneye to name a few (both widely considered as the best ever in their respective genres). Sheer sales numbers don't always mean its the better product. However I do recognize the Wii's evolution on motion sensors. Then of course its my top 5 list and I stick by #5 :-)
Change Wii to Snes and we have a winner.
the fact that the Super-Nintendo isnt on the list...
It's a difficult list to compile, I would struggle to place any of the consoles I've owned over the years in a specific order. They have all had their time in the lime light with some real high points, YS on PC Engine, Shenmue on Dreamcast and FF6 on SNES are some off the top of my head.
Wii but no xbox 360? Okay then...
can the old spectrum zx81 be on the list?
I hate it when the list starts with the #1 rank
Think the original XBox is more appropriate than Wii at no.5.
The ps1 is what gaming is now and forever will be.
The TurboDuo never gets the respect it deserves.
turbografx 16 anyone? Atari Jaguar? Sega Master System?
