1.PS2 2.XBOX 3.Sega Genesis 4.Sega Saturn 5.Super Nintendo 6.N64 7.Dreamcast 8.Gamecube 9.NES 10.PS1 The only reason PS1 is in last is because it's almost useless if you have a PS2, and DC and GC would probably be higher if I had more experience with them.

I was just about to post the same thing.

To stay on-topic, I like all the systems I own - NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, N64, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Dreamcast, GameCube, and Xbox. I guess those would be my top 9.

At one time I owned an Intellivision and only got rid of it when it stopped working. I also have an original Atari 2600, but it no longer works, though I recently found a good deal on a Flashback 4, so there's not a lot I'm missing out on.

1. The Super Nintendo (my favorite console of all time) both Retro and current generation. The original North American version.

2. The Sega MegaDrive/ Sega Genesis Model 1 version 1988 & 1989

3. The NES

4. The Playstation 2 (Slimline version 1) 2004 (this is the system I have the most games for 153)

5 The Original Xbox

6. The PSone The white slimline (just better looking than the Grey original)

7. The GameCube

8. The Nintendo 64

9. The PC engine/Turbo Grafix-16 with CD ROM drive. (back in 1989 playing videogames on a CD was a huge deal)

10. The Wii VC (I am not the biggest fan of Motion controls) but the Wii with the Virtual console is a fine way to Retro Game. The Wii VC is a a great way to catch up on.

NES,SNES,N64,Sega Master System, Sega Genesis SNK Neo GEO,Turbo Grafx 16 and Commadore 64 Retro games. As well as original Wii games. The Wii is now a Retro Console. The VC rocks!

Wii VC is not really a console. So it is "kinda" cheating. I guess the Wii is still an active console. Nintendo is still making them. The Wii Mini. But are there any Wii Games coming in 2013? Not from Nintendo. Third parties...

So a proper 10. I would pick The Sega Saturn if the Wii VC does not count.

#23 Posted by VendettaRed07 (14012 posts) -

Behold, The perfect list

1) Ps1

2) Ps2

3) Super Nintendo

4) Genesis

5) NES

6) N64

7) Dreamcast

8) Atari 2600

9) GCN

10) Sega Saturn (with Japanese imports)

The toughest desicion for me was choosing between the Ps1 and ps2... I gave it to the ps1 because I think I just like its library a bit better personally, and the fact that probably 7 or 8 of the top ten JRPGs ever are playable on it

#24 Posted by Bubble_Man (3095 posts) -

1) PSX

2) SNES

3) N64

4) Dreamcast

5) Gamecube

6) PS2

7) NES

8) Xbox

9) Saturn

Can't come up with a 10th one.

Sega was the boss back in those days! But then, I come from the United Kingdom, which was pretty much "Sega Land" throughout the 8-bit and 16-bit eras. Seriously, Sega dominated the home console market here up until the PlayStation came along.

Yep. Sony was the death of Sega. Once they entered, Sega slowly exited. Not that I'm mad that Sony entered the gaming market because I think they are very vital to where we are today in gaming. I just wish Sega could've competed better. If they released a Dreamcast2, or Dreamcast HD I'd be on board. I know it might be a little too risky for them, but I bet a lot of folks would jump back on the bandwagon with Sega.

[QUOTE="AlexKidd5000"] Why are the PS2, gamecube, and xbox considered retro?

Because they're two generations old now. The PS2, Gamecube, Xbox, Dreamcast, Game Boy Advance, N-Gage, Neo Geo Pocket Color, and Wonderswan Color are sixth generation machines. The eighth generation started with 3DS, PS Vita, and WiiU and will continue with PS4 and the third Xbox. The PS2 today is what the Super Nintendo was to gamers jumping into Dreamcast and PS2 circa 1998-2000.
