    "Nintendo" translated from Japanese to English means "Leave luck to Heaven"

    Nintendo has produced a number of home and portable video game consoles since 1977.
    Home consoles include Color TV Game (1977), the Nintendo Entertainment System/Famicom (NES, 1983), the Super Nintendo Entertainment System/Super Famicom (SNES, 1990), Virtual Boy (1995), the Nintendo 64 (N64, 1996), the Nintendo GameCube (GCN, 2001), and most recently the Wii (2006).
    Portable consoles include the Game & Watch line (1980), the Game Boy line (1989), the Game Boy Advance (2001), the Nintendo DS (2004), and most recently the Nintendo DSi (2008).

    My Choice probably =SNES (so glad we have that emulator, many thanx tantric)

    Best console from Ninty would be the SNES, for sure.

    Best handheld? DS lite.

    Would it be possible for you to change your poll so that we can vote for a handheld and a console seperately.

    Still worth quite a bit of money snes console, can go for like £50 with few games on ebay, same with n64, even megadrive etc.
    n64 games still sell for quite allot, especially mario lines and zelda lines [​IMG]

    SNES and DS. SNES games seem to have aged the best of any console, certainly a lot better than N64 games did.

    The SNES, far and away. Even compensating for rose-tinted nostalgia there was something magical about those times; the thrill of Mario Kart, and hours spent in furious battle mode rivalry with siblings; trying to unlock and beat all the levels in Super Mario World; reading Super Play magazine packed with reviews of obscure Japanese games and awesome anime-style artwork; being envious of the first kid in the school to own a Japanese import copy of Street Fighter 2 (it cost £120 then!); getting drawn into the epic adventures of Legend of Zelda, Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger; slotting those funny square American cartridges into the piggyback adapter so you could play Star Wars ahead of everyone else. Ahh...happy days.

    Wow. I am surprised that DS is winning in regards to the hanheld polls. In my opinion, the GBA was way better. But I guess that many people are only coming into games with the wii and ds so it only makes sense.

    I think it all depends on what you played when you were growing up. For people my age chances are they would choose the N64 (as I did) and anyone older who was at least 7 during 1991 would choose the SNES. Even though everyone such as myself sees the SNES as the golden age of gaming, I choose the N64 because its significant to me. Nothing is more memorable to me then seeing my first form of 3D gaming then seeing Mario's big ass head pop out of nowhere and start looking at stars in Super Mario 64.

    DS changes the Handheld Revolution.
    SNES was just the best console ever.

    Sorry, its now in the poll. i remember that was released in 95, dont really know too much about it, the 3D can only be seen properly through tyour own eyes, cant be re-created through a camera etc. mad sh*t that like. [​IMG] iv'e never been on one, they were only released in Japan and north America.

    The Virtual Boy is considered Nintendo's only major failure in the home video game market.
    Due to the short lifespan of the system, only 22 games were released. Of them 19 games were released in the Japanese market, while only 14 were released in North America.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Virtual_Boy_games

    Shouldn't of been released this project at the particular time, it was rushed into market and failed heavily, Nintendo apparently were only focusing on n64, that's why it became a huge failure..
    Still by the looks of it, they still go for a bit on ebay... [​IMG]
