    Practically ever answer here will be "Dreamcast"

    And that's my answer, as well.

    EDIT - And my Sega Master System.

    I would say the Saturn for me, with the TG16 as a close second. I saw the TG at my cousin's house as a kid and it had some great games, Bonks, Blazing Lasers and a few others that drew me in.
    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?

    Dreamcast, Dreamcast, Dreamcast. Virtually all of my fondest memories full stop come from that console, ignoring the 'from a failed console' stipulation.

    Geez I don't know. I wanna say Dreamcast, Saturn and TG-16. I just can't choose, so many great memories of all 3.

    I have the best memories of the Turbo Grafx 16.

    This was my first system after the NES and the Sega Master System.

    I was the only fellow in the neighborhood with this console and I embraced it dearly. Very few retailers carry games for it and I got many games at Children's Palace as well as Toys R Us. Since games were tough to come by during its time, I kept them all and NEVER sold any. Those games are with me today! (as well as many more)

    To this day I have strong love for the Turbo. I continue to enjoy it and the games that are on it even if they would be consider below average. I am Turbo Grafx fan and supporter for ever!

    im going to list the ones i got close to launch date

    TG16 for me
    i bought it 4 months after launch, and before that i was playing the NES, then i sold it to pay for the Genesis and NHL hockey game that was out, then i bought it back from the guy i sold it to for $10 but it only had 5 games left of the 25 i sold it with

    then the Atari 7800. bought a few months after launch also

    i got the DC when they were discounted to $50 so no fond memories there

    Did the TG16 really fail, in the US?? I know it didn't set the world on fire, but I wouldn't really call it a failure - it survived it's 5 year shelf life.

    It did fairly well until the SNES finally made both the Genny and the TG look like a old Colecovision. It had (and still has) some excellent titles, and did hold its own vs. the Genesis, when it was just Sega and NEC in the 16-bit market...

    Dreamcast, mainly from the hours of Tokyo Extreme Racer 2.

    Vectrex, because of the hours of playtime when I was a kid.

    Well I don't know what you mean by "failed" so I'm picking the 3DO. I remember being amazed by the graphics and even rented the system at one point. I still holdout hope that I will find one in the wild at some point.

    At the risk of sounding like everyone else, Dreamcast. I picked up my black sports model in 2001 with Sonic Adventure, Soul Calibur, Crazy Taxi and Sega Rally 2 and fell in love.
