WHAT?!?! No Playstation?!?! You've included the Sega Saturn in the list, but why not Sony's humble machine? It did come out at the same time as the Saturn.

Any poll like this without the Playstation as an option is completely invalid.

And you've missed out the real answer "360".

Also why "Master System 1 and 2" but not the same for the Megadrive or SNES? What about the SMS and Genesis 3s?

Given you've only included one of the three most important consoles of all time in the poll (the NES, the other two being 2600 and PS1), it isn't much of a poll now ;)

Obviously the Atari VCS 2600 then!

So where is it!!??!


Without this there, arguably, wouldn't be any of the above! :cry:

The Xbox 360 wins this. Bar the fact that it's about as well built as a house of cards it's the best machine I've ever owned.

Or the DS, which is currently my favoured console to date.

If we are talking hardware here, I’d say the Neo Geo: The Rolls Royce of consoles. It gave the expression “arcade perfectâ€

[quote="Darran@Retro Gamer"]The Xbox 360 wins this. [quote]

only if you like FPS's as your fave genre maybe?

downloads are good quality games tho .....but i won't pay for something that isn't a physical item. much rather have the original cart etc. on original hardware.

the gameboy, ds, psone/2 and to a lesser extent wii are all incredibly important in shaping the industry.

just thought tho microsoft own online play and have done for years so 360 'spose gets a shout...in this....grudgingly......*hangs head as defeats own argument at the beggining of post*
