    read very carefully before reply.

    imagine the aliens abducted you and they would send you to a new dimension where there exists only 1 console.
    this console would be at it's end of life and not have any new titles released for it.
    this console wouldn't have games trough emulation like VIRTUAL CONSOLE, or the sega collection, or backward compatibility (however re-releases and HD remakes are allowed, as long as they don't use an emulator)

    what console would you choose?

    Hard question...
    I suppose I would stick some consecutive number to a 1) Sega Genesis, 2) SNES, 3) PS1, 4) Nintendo DS, 5) Wii (MPTrilogy), 6) PS4.
    Then I would roll a six sided dice.

    Sure my selection would be different depending on the day of the week I am answering the question.

    Maybe PS2. Great games in every genre and a huge library.

    Switch.
    Why? Because I'd be able to play all of the unreleased Switch games :P
    I'd rather have a lot of new games I haven't played before than be stuck with the same old games.
    Even though I love the SNES, PSX, GC, DS, Wii and think they all had a lot of good games that I wouldn't mind going back and replaying.
    Edit: Also, forgot to mention BotW, it would take me a few months just to collect everything in that game. In fact if I had to pick only one game to play for the rest of my life I might pick BotW.

    PC isn't a choice... keep in mind there were no games for pc in this dimention\universe
    it would be petty unfair since pc exists forever and you would get games all over since DOS until today's games giving a clear unadvantage

    3DS because Pokemon, legit VCs, VC injects for GB-GBA, DS carts, 3DS carts, the upcoming Ultra Sun and Moon, that's a heavy amount of Pokemon games to satisfy me for a long time. If Switch could support all that via emulation, it'd be that console as my choice. Otherwise, I'll stray to the more realistic.

    Between insane and insecure
    This would be a tough choice for me actually. On one hand, I would play the SNES because it has the glorious God known as Yoshi's Island. On the other hand, I love my old xbox. I used to play my xbox way more than I did my PS2 or Gamecube. I preferred both how the games controlled and looked on the xbox compared to the PS2 and I preferred the fact that the Xbox had more 3rd party games compared to the Gamecube.
    I am going to go with the Xbox because I can play Fable for days.

    Ehm, it's probably between the 360 and 3DS for me. Hard choice.

    There is a dimension where the switch is getting and will get games? The multiverse is a stranger place than I thought.

    Anyway if PC is not an option probably a 360 as the best all rounder which represents most of the gameplay styles out there and the controller does not kill my hands like the PS3 (though I am sure I could fabricate a version of the controller that did not hurt my hands).

    Failing that the DS, though I would want to be able to hack games and cheat.

    like i explained, the console wouldn't have VC titles. or any title trough emulation, or retro compatibility... read my post...
    i choose this reason because no one would even think about a DS or game boy consoles because the 3ds can play all previous games...

    you are limited to the library for that system alone.

    didn't read, please don't reply, get some sleep it's healthy for you. my first sentence clearly said to read carefully before reply, you could at least read that part >:C

    but i accept the n64 as an answer. keep in mind, in this universe you wouldn't have the GB\C games to use in the transfer pack

    hacking games\rom hacks hmm, i didn't thought about it much...
    ok, you can't play rom hacks (cuz you would make new games for the console) however you could use cheat devices and slightly modify stuff for example textures, or walk trough walls... but not in a way that you could replace stuff and create a new game...

    i guess in this dimension, there would be like billions of accessories to make your experince better
