the thing is, this list is always changing for me personally.
other than PS1 & SNES staying permanently in the top spots, the rest of the list from 3 down goes in fads really.

also, some systems get awkward placements for me. See, as a huge star wars fan, i pretty much have to have an original xbox, since it has like 14 different star wars games on it, but thats pretty much all i use it for.

  1. Sony PlayStation
  2. Super Nintendo
  3. Nintendo GameCube
  4. Sony PlayStation 2
  5. Nintendo
  6. Xbox
  7. SegaCDX
  8. Sega DreamCast
  9. Sega Master System
  10. Nintendo64

*NOTE: this list also excludes backwards compatibility as an aspect, otherwise PS2 would be #1 by default merit of playing PS1 games.

Gotta agree with the others, ten is too many to rank.

 

My top 5:

1.PSX - This console is the reason I still game today. I had over 30 games that I still play and love to this day

2.SNES - I was introduced to the likes of Super Mario World and Legend of Zelda, all of which I loved

3.Dreamcast - A system that was way ahead of it's time, but had some great RPGs and of corse, Seaman

4.Genesis - I loved mt Genesis because of the Sonic games. They were games I played constantly and loved

5.PS2 - I loved the Playstation 2, but it gets the last spot because I felt like there was a huge dropoff in the quality of games from the first PS to the second.

1. Sega Saturn

2. SNES

3. Sega CD

4. Neo Geo

5. PS2

6. Sega Genesis

7. NES

8. PS1

9. Xbox

10. Atari 2600

I had to leave out consoles like the Dreamcast, Turbographics 16, CDI because I didn't play them enough or at all. Turbo 16 would probably rate on this since I liked Bonk's adventure.
