    I'm saying a lot of people will go for the SNES or N64. The NES can be a little too retro for many. The Gamecube will probably be the worst, since most big name Nintendo games were too late or not as good (Super Mario Sunshine was not nearly as good as SM64, Metroid Prime series was received well however, and Twilight Princess was 10x better on the Wii). And I still blame the Wii for the massive growth of shovelware.

    It would be SNES, because it's the only console I own, however I have no games for it (well, I do have two)..But I'm planning to get N64, I just hope there will be a flashcart for both those consoles!

    SNES for me. Was my first console, So it holds a special place. but it had a bunch of good games for it. After that i liked the N64, thanks to Mario, Goldeneye 007, DK, Pokemon, a few others.

    The only issue I had with the N64 was the controller layout. I hated where they put the joystick. It was incredibly out of place from where the buttons were, and less compact and hand-friendly than the PSX.

    As for myself, I'm going with the N64 probably. Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are flawless games, and I can't praise Perfect Dark any more (I'll take it over Goldeneye any day). As for Super Mario 64, surprisingly I found it a lot better on the DS version (the controls seemed tighter on the D-pad for me).

    Yeah I liked the 64, The zelda games were excellent.
    but Much prefer Mario on it, then on the DS. The 64' version is much different than the stripped down DS version.

    Not sure which I like least has to be between the Cube' or the Wii'. I don't think the Cube had many good games, but the Wii's overwhelming amount of shovelware puts it in last for me. But yet it sells way more :/

    @ Toni: or anyone who might know:

    Do they make a flashcart for the 64'?
    Finding originals other than purchasing Online is almost impossible around here.

    I did a quick Google for you Sstew:

    http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&...q=N64+flashcard

    So yeah, there were flashcards for the N64.

    I voted for the Wii.
    Because I didn't have any other console.
    But the Wii has Wii games and it has GC controller support, so it's basically a GC too.
    And I love some games on the Wii with the motion controlling.

    It's gotta be the N64. The Wii was okay, got a bit boring, and barley any decent games are coming out.

    The N64 rocks, and I still play it more than the Wii.

    But from what I read, none of those solutions seem perfect to me, most of them are developers tools and very very expensive!

    SNES brings back so many fond memories. [​IMG]

    N64 would be a close second.

    Wii, hands down.

    Why?

    BECAUSE IT CAN PLAY ALL THE OTHER AFOREMENTIONED SYSTEMS' GAMES (and then some)

    Always pick the wildcard, ALWAYS

    I prefer the Gameboy Color more than any home console, Nintendo are far better at handheld gaming than home console. While the original Gameboy wasn't as good as the SNES, the GBC was better than the N64, GBA was better than Gamecube and even now the NDS is better than the Wii.

    Home console though I'm gonna say Super Nintendo, one of the best catalogues of original games out there.

    GBC better than 64?

    Hmm. Have to disagree with that.
    Too many good 64' games out weigh the GBC game library

    There are so many great GBC games that many many people don't know about that still play as good then as they do now, a lot of N64 games have aged for me. At a push I can pick 25 games that I'd consider being great, whereas I can name a lot more GBC titles.

    Just preference, I prefer 2D games, they're more challenging & they age better gameplay wise for me.

    Probably the Wii. I was going to say the GC, but considering the Wii plays GC games I might as well choose the Wii. GC was my favorite Nintendo generation BTW. And I absolutely LOVED Mario Sunshine and Windwaker.

    N64 for me. That was the closest I have ever got to pure fun gaming. I never had a SNES and I only had a few games to play on the NES. The gamecube had great games but could have had so many more if people had actually bought the system. The Wii is great but it isn't pure fun for me. Me following the industry with the mature titles and sales number has tainted my pure fun with the Wii.

    May be showing my age a bit here but the NES has been and still is my favorite. I enjoy playing it now just as much as I did back in the 80's. [​IMG]
