If you could only play stuff released for 1 console, which console would you choose?

    That is a tough question. I want to say PS3 for Tales of Vesperia, but... no, I think I'll stick with that.

    PS1 cuz nostalgia. Not that I grew up with one. Played the games thru a PS2 but man do I have such memories from those days... Gimme a multitap and Crash Bash.. Then spyro where you collect diamonds 'til your eyes go square (frankly the ps2 ones sucked). Then ape escape where you gotta catch monkies 'til your eyes go ape shit. Then Get 'er Alive where you can adjust the boob physx. Such revolution..

    But the best part about the PS1? It didn't have any Call of Duty. Only one and that was Medal of Honor.

    I would probably pick the DS. There are so many RPGs I would probably be busy for the rest of my life.

    I forgot
    Tough choice. It'd have to be either the PS1 or the PS2...

    On the one hand , the PS1 had a ton of great games of all kinds including the original Spyro trilogy which is absolutely one of my favorite series. Add in the dozens of RPGs, some of which included SNES ports of amazing games like Chrono Trigger or FF6, and you'd be basically set for ages.

    On the other, the PS2 really started to "buckle down" and refine the 3D style in general, which spawned hundreds of decent titles like bae Shadow of the Colossus or Okami or Ratchet and Clank or Sly or God of War...

    I don't know ;O;

    DS, between Tomodachi Collection, Nintendogs, and ACWW you're guaranteed to have something to play daily

    I'd say ps4, plenty of great games on there like horizon, Witcher 3, gta v, complete Uncharted series, The Last of Us, Fallout 4, Skyrim SE, and more to keep me busy. If I wasn't so spoiled by today's graphics i could probably go with an older console, say ps2, but I love how games look today too much to give it up.

    Actually, could you specify if you'd be stranded there alone or with other people? Multiplayer would kind of be obsolete if it's the first case. Cept you said you'd have an infinite amount of accessories so post generation 5 consoles could have online play. (Did the Saturn have online multiplayer?)

    it would be like an exact copy of our world, except the only video games would exist were a console library of your choice
    of course you would have friends and people and etc, everything else would be the same..

    or if makes you think easier: your country banned every games and consoles (and succeed) except that one console you choose.
    (for example, if you choose a wii, everyone could only buy wii and it's games)
    just keep in mind, you are allowed only the library of that system, no retrocompability or virtual console\emulators, or pc gaming.

    What about Ouya?
    It's technically a console, and Android will probably keep having games released for it forever :P
    even if they suck :ninja:

    Either the PS2 or the PS4, but most likely the PS4 because they re-released most games that were on the PS3 so I'd be happy.
    But the PS2 has so many good games as well.

    the ouya will become more and more outdated as the years go by, and soon most android games won't even support it
