    Default Your 10 Favorite Consoles: Across the Board

    I've recently found joy in the XBox but it's not my favorite console. There are other systems out there that each have something going for them that other consoles just don't have. Of all the consoles you've played, what are your top ten most favored? Go across the board and take into account game library, graphics, sound, console aesthetics, controllers, price, etc.

    My 10 Favorite: (descending from top)

    Super Nintendo Entertainment System
    My second 16 bit heart-throb. Look at all the pretty colors! Excellent library too!

    Dreamcast
    It's just not fair. It had the games, the visuals, the sound, and the support... cruel world.

    Saturn
    Like the Dreamcast, it had everything going for it. It still ranks high to me. Great games and visuals.

    Playstation (PSOne)
    Sony's tool of vengeance, but the little version is so cute! With the right stuff, it can go anywhere I do.

    Playstation 2
    Not the greatest design, but it's ability to play it's older brother's library is a plus. It's got good games too.

    Turbo Grafx-16/Duo
    My first 16 bit heart-throb. Be it hucard or CD, there are plenty of great games to go around.

    Nintendo Entertainment System
    I can't stop playing this machine. I've tried and failed... miserably. It just seems to get better as years pass.

    XBox
    Most powerful (and heaviest) console ever made, to date. Unfathomable memory space, and soundtrack rip ability. Fluent and graceful.

    Genesis
    My third 16 bit heart-throb. I like sports, but there are many other cool titles too.

    Sega Master System
    Overshadowed by others, but I like this one anyway. Some of my favorite titles are on this one!

    What are yours?

    I'm gonna make this brief.

    Super NES (I resented it at first, but it won me over later after the console wars ended)
    Genesis (my favorite 16-bit console. I had to have one the moment I saw Forgotten Worlds in action... ooh, shiny!)
    Neo-Geo (great arcade hardware, but too expensive for home users. Still actively supported today)
    Game Boy Advance (the best handheld on the market by a mile... only the Neo-Geo Pocket could hope to compete)
    Dreamcast (people would have loved it if they'd just given it a chance. My stepdad's grandkids always want to play it when they're over)
    Playstation 2 (enhances all your favorite PSOne games... and plays some other crap too)
    NES (I actually play this MORE than the above two systems!)
    Saturn (I started out hating it, but then Capcom released that port of NightWarriors and the hatred quickly disappeared. Yes, I'm fickle)
    Playstation (the original is still, well, pretty good. I didn't want to buy one, but broke down after seeing the hundreds of great games released for it)
    2600 (it's primitive, but it served me well during my formative years, and I still play the games on emulators every now and then)

    10?!? I haven't even owned that many! Well, here goes:

    Atari 2600: You always remember your first.

    Commodore 64: Most versatile 8-bit ever made: arcade, military simulation, role-playing, test/graphic adventures... it could do it all!

    Playstation 2: WOW! These aren't games... they're interactive movies!
