    Default What's your favorite console?

    I'm just wondering, what is everyone's favorite console? It doesn't have to be current, it can be a back in the day console eg. Atari, Nintendo, Sega Saturn, etc. And also what are some of your favorite games for that console?

    I really don't know what I'd go with I'm stuck between Atari and Nintendo. I always loved that Super Mario/Duckhunt combo.

    *Looks for duckhunt gun*

    I've not had time to play a console since I found out how to build websites, honest!

    So it would have to be the Sony Playstation which was the last I ever played on.

    My children have had a Dreamcast and a PSX2 but they still drag the old machine out to play in my opinion the of the most entertaining games ever Oddworld featuring that farting misfit Abe.

    Sad but true.

    Heh. My intrest in consoles disappeared once I started using a computer, which in the area of gaming, are much better. But, everyonce in a while I take a time to go back to my r00ts.

    I just can't find fun in these new consoles. Yet I do have to say Dynasty Warriors 4 on PS2 is fun.

    Daniel: SNES or NES? SNES didn't have Mario/Duckhunt =P. Yeah.. I liked NES the best too... I got the action pack or whatever also, came with Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt with the light gun... dunno, Duck Hunt kinda sucked in my opinion, but the gun was cool. I just liked the NES because people did the craziest stuff with it, made all kinds of wacky games. Game makers now are stuck in a rut, and you only see fun creative games every once in a while, when on the NES everything was different. I really miss 2D sidescrollers too... the genre died and it sucks.

    Castlevania! I wouldn't mind seeing some more games like such. But now it seems like all everyone is into is the graphics of the game, which isn't really a bad thing but they forget the great old games.

    Castlevania Symphony of the Night for Playstation was really good... I dunno how many of you played it, but I liked it more than the old NES ones

    My favorite of all time is the sega genesis of course. I love all the games on that system and my favorite games are sonic and zelda. Just imagine if sonic and link were to switch characteristics, sonic will be the fastest pimp in Hyrule and Link will have robotnik dancing like a little girl at the end of his power spin attack.

    I'm an avid ngage user, I know there aren't many on the US market at the moment, but I love the fact that I can play online with other players while on the go and that it doubles as a phone, at home I use my ps2
