well, it would probably be the SNES, Ive never owned the system but I own ports of SNES games for other systems (like chrono trigger and the FF games on the PS1, and the PC port of Mega Man X, as well as some Mega Drive versions of SNES games like Street Fighter 2)
Super Nintendo, because they had all of the best developers, first and third party on board in their golden years. Ever since the N64, Nintendo abandoned third parties. Now, quality third party games are almost non existant on Nintendo consoles, barring the DS(i).
nostalgia says N64
but im going to go with the gamecube
i had one but i neglected it for so long that i missed out on a bunch of games that im frantically trying to catch up on
i just barely got
Tales of Symphonia
Super Smash Bros melee
and fire emblem path of radiance
just a few weeks ago and i still need to get pikmin, geist, and killer7 the metrod games (i might just get them on the wii)
and many more
So far, I think the N64 was a real piece of work. I own more games for it than for any other console, and it just had tons and tons of revolutionary and fun games.
The Wii, though, might just become my favourite. It's like a summary of Nintendo's legacy thus far, with the Virtual Console, GCN ports, and not mention new games such as Mario Kart Wii, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which are quite simply some of the best games I have ever played. I'll be able to give a more definitive judgment by the end of the generation, though, which I hope is still some time away.
My appreciation for the GC has drastically risen as well in the past 2 years. I missed out on a lot of its games because I also had an Xbox, but now that I'm slowly correcting that mistake, I have to say the GC had a pretty solid game library.
N64, and here's why -
N64 has a viable contender for "best/most important gamer ever" in almost every major game genre I tend to play. FPS? Goldeneye. Platformer? Mario 64. RPG? Zelda OoT. Wrestling game (I like these)? WWF No Mercy. Star Wars (practically a genre unto itself)? SotE.
Plus I really liked the controller.
Probably the NES for the simple reason that it was my first game console, and the fact that it turned the gaming industry around after the crash.
A very close 2nd would be the SNES - it was the first system I ever saw 3D graphics on (Star Fox), and the first system I ever played an FPS game on (Wolfenstein 3d and Doom).
GameCube would come next as I feel it had and still has some of the best 3D updates of franchises from NES and SNES.
Which leads into the last nintendo console I owned, the N64. I had some really fun games for the N64, but I spent FAR more time playing my PlayStation and PC. N64, overall, felt too much like a console for people much younger than I was at that time. It's like the N64 was perfect for gamers from 6-12, but teenagers and adults had a lot more appealing games to choose from on the PlayStation.
I can't rate the Wii, because I've never owned one (same with the Virtual Boy) - and I left out handheld systems. If I did own a Wii, perhaps it would rank up there with the NES as my favorite for the fact that it's completely backward compatible with the GameCube, AND has the ability to play NES, Master System, Turbo Grafx 16, Genesis, Super Nintendo, N64, NEO GEO, Commodore 64, MSX and arcade games thanks to the Virtual Console (and a thing called the Homebrew channel).
without doubt the 64. anyone who says that thiers is the Wii obviously hasnt played the others. i juge systems on the games that they play, and the Wii seems to be shaping up as a "my first console" marketed to children with barely any decent mature games.boxofwonderYou do realize the wii has a large amount of the games that made those other systems so great? That alone makes your post seem more anti-wii than anything.
And the wii has plenty of mature games, just because you don't like them that doesn't mean they aren't their.
Anyways my favorite Nintendo system is probably the Super Nintendo.
