5 points - Nintendo DS. It rekindled the interest in simpler and more old-school games when everyone was obsessed with 3d and "cinematic" experiences.
4 points - Gamecube. Such a pretty console without any gimmicks and some of the best games of all time: Wind Waker, Metroid Prime and Resident Evil 4.
3 points - Megadrive. The coolest looking console ever, and even though it wasn't as powerful as the SNES, it was amazing for the arcade conversions.
2 points - Master System. The most underrated console of all time. Some of the best arcade conversions for an 8 bit system and very colourful and pretty graphics. I prefer it over the NES
1 points - Game boy. Unlike the other handhelds it was really portable and it had some great games.

This is the first time I've done one of this lists and not had to um and ah about my entries or make any compromises. Quite painless, really :)

5 points - Nintendo 64
4 points - PS2
3 points - Sega Megadrive
2 points - Nes
1 point - Wii

Aside from currently also owning a PS3 and having a short lived affair with the original xbox when it came out, these are the only consoles I've owned. Now I'm a bit older and can appreciate the sheer quality of the Nintendo systems over the years, I regret not having a snes and a gamecube in my life back in their respective generations.

5. Mega Drive - I'd hate to know the number of months of my life that I've spent playing on this console
4. PlayStation 3 - not retro, but it's the first console for many years that I've managed to devote considerable time to
3. Master System - introduced console gaming to me, taught me that I didn't need to rely on dodgy tapes that took forever to load to play games
4. PlayStation 2 - a massive library of games, tomorrow's retro gems.
5. Gameboy - underpowered, black and white but popularised handheld gaming and paved the way for the DS and possibly even casual mobile phone gaming

Comode 64 isn't even an electrical item, it's a biological waste product produced by swamp rats and small ferrets

5 - Xbox 360 - Played some stunning games on that - Fallout 3, Skyrim...the best gaming experience I've had thus far.
4 - Atari 2600 - Looks basic now but at the time..
3 - Neo Geo - An arcade in your home doesn't get much better than that.
2- Gameboy advance - Could have gone for the gameboy but this was graphically and audibly superior which I prefer.
1- SNES - Mariokart, Legend Of Zelda anyone?
