console battle SEMI-FINAL 1 - SEGA MASTER SYSTEM VS SUPER NINTENDO

Post by RodimusPrime » Mon May 15, 2017 7:52 am

Story so far

The Master system has managed to beat the NES, COMMODORE C64GS, and the ATARI 2600.

The SNES has beaten the NEOGEO, MEGADRIVE, and the VECTREX

So first SEMI-FINAL is SEGA MASTER SYSTEM vs SUPER NINTENDO

I love the MS, but the SNES is one of my top 3 consoles of all time so going to have to go with that.

It somehow beat the Atari 2600 so I am going with the underdog - the Master System for me.

Got to be the Super Nintendo for me. One of my top consoles of all time, and because of the time and age I had it, probably the most fondly remembered console of all.

We've mentioned backwards compatibility of lots of games consoles so far, but lets not forget the brilliant Super Game Boy for the SNES, which just made the SNES even more awesome! Think there was a NES adaptor as well, but it wasn't official, or as solidly built as the SGB from what I gather.

SNES for me

Never got into the Master System , didnt know anyone who had one (Everyone moved onto amiga/Megadrive after the 8 bits)

Do like the SNES. Tons of great games on it, big step up from the NES.

I don't think any of the remaining consoles would make my personal top 10 systems, possibly the the 360 maybe, but certainly not the others.

The 360 and the Snes would be along side the NES probably my top 3.

MS and and PS2 may squeeze into the top 10.

SMS is a great 8 bit system, but it can't compete with the SNES.

I never played too much on the Master System, and I've never owned a SNES. I was Commodore 64/Amiga back then. However, I played a lot of SNES games around a friends house, especially in the Summer holidays. So happy memories there.

I mean, I can have a guess at two, maybe three here, but I have no clue what on earth you'd be picking here. Remember, these are HOME consoles in the voting, so NO handhelds heh, so no Lynx or Gameboy for example.
