It's depressing I grew up playing older ones than what's listed.

WiiU atm, only reason i didnt pick Switch is it have not been out in the market for long. But only 1game(zelda) until that Mario game at xmas yeah that terrible lineup.

Other hand i think WiiU is a more robust quality console than Switch that stinks budget crap like that plastic stand that scratch the display.

I only went with ones I owned, and the Wii was by far the worse one.

No, no, no.... The absolute WORST console in the last 30 years has got to go to the Ouya. Biggest piece of shit I have ever gotten and runner up to that is the fake ass Sega Genesis Classic by At GAMES.

There were worst consoles that fell within the 30-year mark. They were so bad the brand didn't survive beyond the initial model, unlike those on the list.

PS3 nearly bankrupt Sony. They're still trying to recover from that disaster.

probably not anything made by sony/nintendo/microsoft/sega. nintendo and sega have some stinkers, and the virtual might be the worst of the bunch, but look at crap like the 3do or jaguar or cd-i. and, please, don't come in here talking smack about how they are "underrated." no, they are not. i cringe when people try to argue that case. they're trash compared to their contemporaries.

come to think of it, maybe it's actually the n-gage? the performance of every game i've seen on the platform has been gross.

or maybe the super a'can? only 12 games made for that thing.

God was the virtual Boy abysmal! It was a huge battery drainer and could consume 12 batteries in 1 day! Each set of 6 batteries are only good for 4 hours of play and it wasn't really portable either.

Has to be Hyperscan. It has to be! It had a select few of licensed games, some with 30 minute+ loading screens all for some really shoddy gameplay.

Are you sure the Philips CDI isn't worse than Jaguar?

At least Jaguar had a couple of great games.

Sega Saturn because it was so easy to hack and bankrupted Sega--I don't think you should include the Saturn though, because of the dumb management decisions of Sega.

If you asked me 2 months ago, I would have told you that the Wii U is the 2nd worst console in the last 30 years but BoTW redeemed the turd lol. So, i'll have to give the honour to the ps2.

Probably the Xbox 360 because out of all of those Console models you listed that one had the worst failure rate.

Good System and better then the One for sure, but Those early adopters got royally screwed.

No, that system is probably one of the most underrated consoles EVER. I enjoyed that machine waaay more than my Sega Saturn (which I had very high expectations for). The Saturn and the 3DO are two of the worst consoles I have ever owned.

It's not even that old, but I find the XBone to be pointless. Barren console with almost no exclusives, and the ones it has no one even cares about anymore.
