What do you think?

Personally, I think the N64 was.  Not only was it host to Ocarina of Time, but it had some of the greatest platformers and even shooters.

So far I'd say the N64, even though the Analog Stick was easily breakable. :P I don't doubt that at this time next year I'd say the Wii is the most successful though.

Hmm To be honest, despite it be "under gamed" I think the gamecube was the best. It has a great controller, great graphics and it did have some great games.

If you mean successful in terms of sales, don't count on it. Wii will sell a lot better than the GCN, but I doubt it can 1up Nintendo's best with the NES' 60 million sold worldwide

By sales yes, but more so I think it'll have better games, a decent online service, and loads of great VC titles.

Definitely, yes. They already have the best download service of arcade games of the three consoles with the VC, the only thing is Microsoft has Nintendo beat overall in the downloads section with all of the demoes and tv shows you can buy.

i say N64 because it had a lot of great games, and overall was just a great system. The Wii will probably catch up soon though, once i figure everything out fully, and great games come out too.

Yeah, I never did break the analog, but I have seen the ones that are. I guess I just take good care of my controllers. Anyways, I think that the N64 is Ninty's all time great console, it had the best titles out there, you just can't compete with that.

I never 'broke' mine either, but I just checked it out a week or two ago and I think if I did so much as dropped it the thing would shatter to pieces. And my friends analog stick is just messed up, I can't even explain it.

That's to be expected since MS has had the 360 out for much longer. I think Ninty should have more upgrades on the Shop Channel (I'm assuming they'll have some in the Wiiware eventually), and they should add GB games to the VC collection. If you think about it, 1 & 2 could be A and B, + & - could be Start and Pause, and obviousely you've got the D-pad. It makes perfect sense to me, and those would probably be mad cheap to download. Plus with the Classic Controller you can do GBA games as well.

The Nes/Super Nintendo were great systems only... I don't know. 3D games are just more addicting to me.

But man... In my opinion, the GC and N64 are near equal in terms of greatness, but... Most of the great games on the GC are sequels to great games on the N64... So I'm gonna have to go with the N64.

But with the Wii, it's just too young.

So far I'd say the N64, even though the Analog Stick was easily breakable. :P I don't doubt that at this time next year I'd say the Wii is the most successful though.OhhSnap50893


Heh, I broke 2 N64 controllers and one console back in the day.:P

Hands Down SNES it just rocks and in essence everything Nintendo is all about. On a side note don't you guys miss the days when Nintendo was the tech savy company that broke all hardware records and absolutely dominated the market. Anyway back on topic the SNES was and is the best console for several reasons: New stereo Sound was huge back then and the SNES was the first to have it. Then the graphics were simply insane at the time. Multiplayer this was the first console to have 4 player through multi tap (NBA JAM Session). The GAMES The Game The Games I say it 3 times cause this console has provided the most AAA titles from Nintendo think about it this console defined platform gaming with Super Mario World which is probably a contender for best games of it's time, Star Fox, Metroid, Yoshis Island, Marios All stars ( the best compilation game I've ever bought), Mario Kart, F zero, Final Fantasy, Breath Of Fire, Bomber man and Super Mario RPG I mean with a list like that how can anyone think this was not the most important console in history. Please I'm not trying to be condescending in any way but many of you were not old enough to realize how big this thing was, but as someone whom was there for all the major Nintendo Launches this thing took gaming to a whole new level. Enough of my rant on the subject but believe me I never take out my NES and play but my SNES gets some action regularly with a couple of sessions every month especially with childhood friends.

NES all the way! Umm... Yeah, can't touch those classics.

I think that OoT is overrated. As is TP.

The SNES, easy. It had all of the excellent, classic RPG's, as well as some of the best platformers I've ever played. Even though my favourite game is LoZ: OoT, you can't beat the amount of awesome games that were on the SNES.

Yeah! Alright! Usually, with polls like this, the N64 is chosen the least. But it looks like most people here like the N64!

Well, if you have a Wii then you should definitely buy Ocarina of Time when it comes out on the Virtual Console.... which should be available any week now.

700 points won't buy OoT, N64 games cost 1000 points (plus it isn't on the VC yet anyway).

I thought you didn't like c-l-a-s-s-i-c games! :P

But seriously, don't let it stop you from getting this game! It's not widely considered to be the greatest game of all time for nothing. ;)

Actually, I think they came out with a 3D game in 1990 or something like that. It was very simple, and featured very little graphical detail and control, but it was still in 3D. ;)

I don't like how the Wii Point system works with your credit card you can't just buy 100 points or whatever you want.

No, I like classic games, just not new games in old style. I like Super Mario Bros. I dont know... I like most classic games just not bad graphics on Final Fantasy.. I DO like FF7.

What do you think?

Personally, I think the N64 was. Not only was it host to Ocarina of Time, but it had some of the greatest platformers and even shooters.REVOLUTIONfreak

Well, I think that the N64 was the worst, followed by the GC.

The SNES and the NES were their better consoles. I can't decide which one was the greatest, but I'll say the SNES.

While I disagree, I can respect your logic on that... the NES and SNES were the origins of a lot of great franchises we see today, the N64 just recreated them in 3D. 

I think the GCN was much worse than the N64 though... the GCN was host to only a handful of must-have titles, and we didn't see too many new original games spawn from the cube either.

I second that. The only new thing about the GCN was the switch to discs for the games, and somewhat of a graphics update. While the only thing that was new about the N64 was also a graphics update, that leap was so huge that it changed the face of Nintendo gaming forever, as there were so many more posssiblities to be discovered with the jump into 3D (while there were already 3D games in existence, they couldn't have too much depth because of the limitations of previous systems). The GCN, although also with updated and better graphics, didn't revolutionize the way that games could be played.

Like the GC, the N64 had few really good games. The N64 was a major screw-up for Nintendo. Everyone knows - or should know - that. Does that mean that everything on the N64 was crap? No, it doesn't. I can name perhaps eight or nine games for the N64 that I consider to be great. Maybe the GC has even less must-have titles, when you think about it. I don't think any of them were particularly good - neither the N64 nor the GC.

But the NES and SNES had thousands of games, and while alot of them were bad, many of them were actually good. The diversity of games on the NES and SNES is unparallelled. And like you said, the NES and SNES were the origins of so many of the franchises today - they cannot be ignored.

It's either the SNES or the NES. Popularity? - The NES. Quality? - The SNES. I'd say the SNES. What comes after "greatest" and "next greatest" can be discussed. :)

The GCN, although also with updated and better graphics, didn't revolutionize the way that games could be played.

That is true. But while the N64 meant the leap from 2d to 3d for Nintendo, it didn't turn out that well for them - they are still recovering from it, and I doubt that they will ever become as big again as they were back before the PlayStation.

They are all good consoles but they haven't done as well as the early one like the NES or SNES or N64. Can the Wii continue to be a success.

For those who know me your should automatically what my answer is going to be ,but for those who are new and don't know me it has to be NES all the way ! The NES started it all for Nintendo and introduced the world to Mario,Zelda,Metroid and a whole lot more character that we have grown to love over the last 20+ years.The problem is that not a lot of you at the union have never played the NES in fact most of you weren't even born yet,so you really can't appreciate what that console has done for the world of gaming even if it's a mire 8-bit console.

[QUOTE="REVOLUTIONfreak"][QUOTE="doubutsuteki"]

[QUOTE="REVOLUTIONfreak"]What do you think?

Personally, I think the N64 was. Not only was it host to Ocarina of Time, but it had some of the greatest platformers and even shooters.doubutsuteki

Well, I think that the N64 was the worst, followed by the GC.

The SNES and the NES were their better consoles. I can't decide which one was the greatest, but I'll say the SNES.

While I disagree, I can respect your logic on that... the NES and SNES were the origins of a lot of great franchises we see today, the N64 just recreated them in 3D.

I think the GCN was much worse than the N64 though... the GCN was host to only a handful of must-have titles, and we didn't see too many new original games spawn from the cube either.

Like the GC, the N64 had few really good games. The N64 was a major screw-up for Nintendo. Everyone knows - or should know - that. Does that mean that everything on the N64 was crap? No, it doesn't. I can name perhaps eight or nine games for the N64 that I consider to be great. Maybe the GC has even less must-have titles, when you think about it. I don't think any of them were particularly good - neither the N64 nor the GC.

But the NES and SNES had thousands of games, and while alot of them were bad, many of them were actually good. The diversity of games on the NES and SNES is unparallelled. And like you said, the NES and SNES were the origins of so many of the franchises today - they cannot be ignored.

It's either the SNES or the NES. Popularity? - The NES. Quality? - The SNES. I'd say the SNES. What comes after "greatest" and "next greatest" can be discussed. :)

It was a screw up?  I don't see 30-40% market share and 30 million units sold entirely as a screw up.  Could they have done things better?  Sure.  But a screw up?  Not at all.  They invented rumble that generation, moved to 3D, and popularized analog sticks.  In comparison I'd like to see what exactly Sony or Sega accomplished that generation?

As for the NES and SNES, I can't really comment considering I never really got the chance to play a lot of the games on the platforms.
