Those first two pretty much show the variance from US to UK gaming markets.

My top ones aren't all retro, after all, many modern games are already some of my favourites of all time.

(In no particular order)

1. JAPANESE Saturn (Japanese being the important part of that one)
2. Neo Geo MVS/AES system
3. Xbox 360
4. Commodore 64
5. CPS2 System (well hey, it's kind of a console, arguably)

Although I think it's a bit unfair to decide so simply - there's too many years of consoles !! It was hard not to include SNES or Megadrive for example, or even the original Xbox..
