That I own? Without doubt the PS1

In general? Harder question as there is loads of really useless stuff out there like the Action Max and Tiger R-Zone.

There are a few mainstream machines I don't particularly like, the N64, C64 and NES for example.

I will only comment on machines I own, i have had really bad ones like the action max and Game.com but I knew they were complete rubbish anyway and never bough them with the intention to spend any serious timeplaying games on them.

I don't dislike them but the my top 3 consoles I own that get the least use and I sometimes fee its a bit of a chore to play them are

The Atari Jaguar

Amstrad GX4000

3DO.


would have had the CDI on here but sold that a while ago, utter garbage and very very little redeeming features. best thing I did was selling it with around 40 games and spending the money on NES, Snes and MD games.

From the ones I currently own. It has to be the CDI. Even the "best" games on the system like the apprentice are ok at best. All the controllers are crap. Even as a VCD player, its ok at best. I have no idea why I still own one

there have been some shockers - the Jag, CDI, Lynx, 3DO etc were all completely dreadful.

3DO is probably my most hated because I stupidly paid full price for one, but for sheer awfulness it has to be the comically inept Jag, an epic fail in every way.

surprised at the lynx being mentioned, have heard a lot of folks on here praise it.

doesn't have to be a machine you own. I don't ow. a Wii and ha e only briefly played it a few times, but its the only console that I am completely uninterested in.

Can't really pick one.
These are all, equally, uninteresting to me.

NES
Wii
Jaguar
Intellivision

I am guessing that was HalcyonDaze00? I have him blocked so I don't have to read his drivel. He most likely said it just to try and wind people up, failing as usual.

Well I don't currently own anything I don't like because who has space to keep things they don't want to use!

Out of the all the machines I have owned however, I would say the N64. Absolutely hated the controller and even as somebody who owns Nintendo consoles and highly rates the games, I have no wish to buy another N64. The good stuff such as Ocarina and Mario 64 has thankfully been released again. I have the former twice on the Gamecube on various special discs and the latter for the DS for example. In general though, it's a console that holds zero allure for me.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Honestly? Playstation 2. Far too many identikit clones and bland shooters.

Same here. Bought one. Three weeks later, sold one. What a mistake.
