MAKE SURE TO VOTE IN THE FINAL ROUND!

The voting period is over! Nearly 20 pages of votes, and the competition wasn't a competition so much as it was a massacre. The Top Five was heavily slanted in the favor of two console makers above all, and one system in particular butchered everything and everyone that came in its way: Sony's Playstation 2.

The final tally is given below. The top five proceed to the next round:

Playstation 2: 3620 points
Super Nintendo Entertainment System: 2350 points
Playstation: 1330 points
Playstation 3: 1105 points
Nintendo 64: 680 points


Gamecube: 595 points
Xbox 360: 570 points
Genesis/Mega Drive: 425 points
Nintendo Entertainment System: 285 points 
Dreamcast: 165 points
Wii: 155 points
Xbox: 115 points
Wii U: 65 points
Laseractive: 50 points 
Saturn: 30 points  
Tandy VIS: 25 pointa
Colecovision: 15 points
Magnavox Odyssey: 15 points
Pippin: 15 points


PS2

SNES

Playstation

PS3

Nintendo 64

 

For System Wars purposes, here's an interesting fact: every single Sony console ever made was in the Top 5. Sony completely dominated the Top 5. Sony and Nintendo collectively dominated the charts. 

No Microsoft console shows up until rank #7.

 

So what happens now?

  • Now the top 5 systems (PS2, SNES, PS, PS3, N64) move into the next round, in a no holds barred free for all poll. The new thread will be made soon. Please stand by.

Welcome System Wars to the newest, latest, and greatest System Wars Votes.

What is System Wars Votes? System Wars Votes is a series of community oriented polls, in which the entire community comes together to vote on ranking something related to gaming. So far, there have been five System Wars Votes:

Greatest Zelda Game of All Time
Greatest Game Franchise of All Time
Greatest Final Fantasy Game of All Time
Greatest Game Company of All Time
Greatest RPG of the Generation

And now, we have the newest one...

SYSTEM WARS VOTES:

THE GREATEST HOME CONSOLE OF ALL TIME


Yes, time to address one of the perennial questions that plagues System Wars once and for all. What do you all really think is the greatest home console of all time? In this thread, you decide!

And just how do we go about this?

By a simple, community oriented voting procedure. In this thread, you name your three favorite home consoles of all time. Make sure to name them in order. The first console will get 50 points, the second console will get 25 points, the third console will get 15 points. The order you list your choices in is very important, as it will affect the final tallies.

Anything and everything is eligible for this list, but there are the following stipulations:

  • First, and most obviously, only home consoles qualify for this list. You cannot name handhelds or the PC for the purposes of this thread, which is only to discuss home consoles.
  • You must list only three home consoles. If you list less than three, your post will be disqualified. if you list more than three, only the first three consoles you listed will be considered, in order.
  • All home consoles, major or minor, are eligible for this competition, with one stipulation: any console listed here must have been released in at least two major markets. Any console that released in only one major market will not be considered eligible.
  • Console revisions and redesigns are not eligible.
  • If you edit your post for any reason, make sure to make a list of all the edits you made. Any edited post without an accompanying list of edits will be disqualified.
  • You must either be Level 5 or have a post count of 200 to be eligible to vote.
  • Voting closes Midnight, April 7 2013 Central Time. Please make sure to get your votes in before then.
  • The top five winners of this round at the end of the voting period will go on into a no holds barred simple old school style System Wars poll to determine one true winner.

Got it? It's pretty simple :P

With that in mind then, let me name my top three without further ado:

  1. Nintendo 64
  2. Playstation 2
  3. Super Nintendo Entertainment System

I'll tell you one thing it's not the Wii U that's for sure. Why? Because?

1. The Wii U is last generation
2. The Wii U is over priced
3. The Wii U has terrible graphics
4. The Wii U has a terrible battery life
5. The Wii U has no games

Honestly, I wouldn't be suprised if Nintendo pulled out of this piece of crap and went third party by Christmas.

Thanks! :) The series has really taken off over the last few contests, and I wanted to make sure the newest one would be big enough that people would bother :P

1. Playstation 2 2. Xbox 360 3. Playstation 3 PS1 almost made the cut but it's 3D games controlled horrible in comparison to the N64 at the time. Nothing on PS1 could match the scale of Super Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, or DK64. The N64 just didn't have enough games to make the list though.

The idea is to assess each console for the time when it first released.

No, that's fair game, IMO. You have to assess the features they offer. For example, snes could play all Gameboy games, as well.

I owned both the SNES and Genesis as a kid and played the genesis much more because I liked the Sonic games better than the Mario games. I just liked how fast I could go in Sonic and SMW felt so slow in comparison. This was all made possible due to dat Blast Processing. Thank you, Sega :cool:.
