Yet again, despite our differences, we seem to agree about a loty when the subject is purely about videogames ( same with the 360 vs Wii as well )
Maybe you focus on our differences more than I do or you like to create this grudge/rivalry more than I care to :P

I'm not anywhere nearly as monstrous or twa**ish as you make think I am!

I voted for the SNES, but if it had been pretty much any other console up against it, then I would have voted for the Vectrex. It's my second favourite retro hardware after the C64 of course. But the SNES is the greatest console of all time imo ;)

If I were a mischievous sort that would be almost the perfect post to stir the pot! But I am not so I won't :wink:
Unless by actually pointing it out, I am? now I have confused myself....

Anyway Vectrex vs SNES probably one of the more unlikely match ups given the differing periods. Although both manufacturers were formed in the late 1800's. (Ok not strictly accurate as Milton Bradley did not create the Vectrex). Irrelevant history section over....

Do not have any emotional attachment to either, mate had a SNES back in the day LTTP was a great game! (but was into PC gaming at this time). Never used a Vectrex in anger but it is a novelty.

So will be flip a coin or protest vote against Nintendo itself (the SNES is a pretty good console). Nintendo give us gaming's biggest icon in the form of a plumber! Any profession that charges you £75+ an hour to fiddle with your ballcock should not represent video gaming........although come to think of it.

Should that be the case, then the Vectrex will be a better barrier. Should the original Xbox not be available!

This is a tough one. The SNES is an absolute classic machine and a good bet for the final. However the Vectrex is one if not the number one console I'd like to own. SNES but only by a whisker.

Nooo! I lied... this poll means something to me :lol:

Vectrex is awesome. SNES is great but I'd take a Vectrex any day of the week.

The Vectrex is novel, I grant you and there's nothing else like it. However, for me it's going to be the SNES. Playing the original Mario Kart and the amazing conversion of Street Fighter II on it were for me, some of the great gaming moments of the 1990s.
