what console does nothing for you ?

Post by snowkatt » Wed Jun 08, 2011 9:14 am

this is not a my console is better then your thread and i hope it wont descend in to that but
we probably all have had a machine that did nothing for you no matter how you tried the games werent there or you just ignored it in favor of others
for me the two that dont do much for me any more are the nes and megadrive
which is a bit odd because those were my first consoles first came the nes then the megadrive
but these days i struggle to even name 4 titles on each console i like and i tend to gravitate more to the snes and saturn ( and ps 1 ) then the nes or megadrive
i am more interested in the 32 x then the megadrive

i also tried to like the wii but it does nothing for me
hey wait ! i got a new complaint !

The Sega Saturn leaves me cold (although I've never had a JAP one)

I'm not very keen on any system pre 16 Bit either (with the possible exception of the NES)

Hmm there are a few but I think the biggest one for me is the SNES. Never liked the machine and never really played any games on it that made me want one. When I put this machine next to the wonderful Megadrive there really is no argument for me.

Exactly the same here! Add the original XBox as well; I had a chance to pick one up for £10 with a handful of games earlier this week, and I couldn't be bothered.

More than a few for me too.
The main ones that induce abject indifference ...

Can't muster any interest for the Intellivision. Never been fussed about the Saturn. The Wii is currently persona non grata but has the potential to snag my interest at some point (I wasn't interested in the Gamecube until long after its demise).
I've got a NES but it doesn't get much of a run out.

N64, I've yet to play anything on one that makes me think I want one of them about the place, I can't stand the controller & it is a butt-ugly machine.

Neo Geo - a Thatcher Youth system for spoilt bastards full of boring button mashing Street Fighter 2 clones & the over-rated Metal Slug series.

The Amstrad (insert random letters & numbers) - The 8-bit system the weird kids at school had.

never really had any kind of love (or that much exposure to in truth) the master system or the NES. i was more home computers then - sharing my c64 with my neighbours spectrums and amstrads, and nobody around me at the time had any of the consoles. never properly went back to explore if i really missed out on anything though.

Amstrad GX4000. Original GB-Still own 1 (was bought for me as a present-Hate the screen).Nes-Tried via emulation, it's not bad, but nothing really stood out. Commodore C64 GS, CDTV, CD32. Atari 65XE-Looks like Tomy were involved, give me the sexy 800XL computer any day. Nintendo Wii-just cannot get on with it, motion control not my thing.

You sure about that? The SMS is far better in the graphics department than the NES

have to admit I just assumed that - havent played any NES really. (I'm probably thinking more about SNES being more powerful than Megadrive - 16bit was more my era)-
