Favorite console of all time?The_Last_Ride

The Nintendo 64 would be mine. Great exclusives and the best gamepad I have ever used. No other gamepad has felt comfortable for shooters in comparison to my mouse and keyboard except for the N64.

Nice.

The first console I played was the NES, but I didn't own it at the time.

I lucked out with my PS2 as well. I was working at Wendy's when I was 15 and one night my Dad picked me up from work and he had a PS2 waiting for me in the car. He must have heard me talking about wanting one.

What made me get a PS1 was WWF Smackdown!. Playing that at my friends house I knew I just had to have that console. Goldeneye did the same thing for the N64. Luckily that was my gift for passing Grade 7. I was a spoiled kid.

It still works lol. I hook it up every once in a while for drunken Goldeneye and Perfect Dark with friends. My PS1 also still works. Only console that ever died on me was my old 360 which started chewing discs.

My PS1 is probably dead now, but last time I saw it, it was operating normally. I have a new PS1 now.

I thought you sold all your consoles. I didn't know you still had your N64. Goldeneye was awesome.:P

I asked Sony if they would mind sending me one so I could 'test' it, and they said sure. Then they hired me as a employee.;|

None of that happened.:P

I actually just got fired. I poured some cleaner on the old Xbox One prototype. When questioned about why I did that, I replied with, "I was trying to clean up the mess."

Oh well, I still have my job at Nintendo and Sony!:D

@Kman: Wow, I didn't know that. Amazing when you think about it.

The xbone is now on a greater course to flopping than it was before. They're changing too much hardware this late in the game. I've seen some places online saying they might just repeat the red ring of death thing that the 360 had.

In brighter news, they recently confirmed that the kinect doesn't need to be connected all the time.

I still say the Red Ring of Death isn't as common as people say it is. My original Xbox is still going!:x

That's great news! The second part I mean.:P

I heard a Xbox 360 got it in one week. I also heard a PS3 only lasted a week, so they're about equal to me in terms of reliability. Both are crap in that regard.:P

N64 dominates them both because it's a tank!:evil:

Hmm, that could be coming from anywhere. Does it output a video signal everytime you turn it on or does it fail to power up?

Mine does that. I think it's because dust gets in the cartridges and the system has trouble reading it.:P

Nintendo have built tanks for consoles more often than not. I remember once my buddy's PS2 fell on his GameCube from on top of a TV and the GameCube still worked fine, the PS2 wouldn't turn on lol.

:lol:

I could literally take my N64 and throw it as hard as I can, and I bet it would still work normally. It would probably hurt me more than the console.:P

I know that's not true. They fixed it before the slim came out. I don't know how much before, but they did fix it before :P
