    I can't be arsed to create a poll so you're going to have to type your asnwer or answers in. Everyone's got console or computers they love but what about one's that you really didn't like? Have you got one that just collected dust and you never really used?

    I really wasn't keen on the Spectrum. It had loads of love here in the UK but I was never impressed by it's bleeps and bleeding colours. It had a couple of ok games on it but I owned a C64 and there was just no comparison.

    Console wise the console I own that I've given the least play time to is my PSX. It had some great games on it and for the time the tech was pretty awesome, but I could count the one's I really loved (as in one's I still go back and play) on one hand. I've always had both the Saturn and the PSX and my Saturn just got and still gets loads more use.

    My PSP. I bought it cause most of my friends have one.
    Why is it my least favorite? The games and the controls.
    Very few games worth checking. I only liked ... 9 games so far.
    Controls on most games are hard to get used to (MGS:PO).
    No second Analog Stick. Loading times are a pain in the ass.
    Device is very fragile, I accidentally broke the screen (PSP fell off) and had to fix it for 80$.

    And now it's just setting there on the shelf collecting dust. I'll take pics as soon as I'm home.

    Virtual Boy, 180 dollars on release making it my big christmas present that year. It gave me vertigo and migraines. The games have less content than original GB games. The only game console to cause me harm during its use. The thing was marketed as a handheld but the 6 AAs drained faster than a game gear, almost forcing you to keep the ac adapter in unless you had mad money for either a dozen Alkalines a day or 60+ dollars for the first NiCad Batteries and charger. Easily the worst handheld and easily the worst console too, however you slice it

    My least favourite console is probably the Wii to be honest. Ive never felt so "meh" towards a gaming machine from the moment I got it. Firstly it kind of feels like a rip off, you know Nintendo are making a lot of cash on the hardware considering every aspect of the hardware does the bare minimum possible. Also I was expecting cool original controls and stuff, but the controls for most Wii games are shit. And the price of the wiimote and nunchuck are extortionate. I just cant be bothered with it at all now I have a 360 and PS3.

    Second would be the GameCube, and the only thing I have against that is I consider it to have the worst controller ever designed. They literally fucked up every aspect of it. I just didnt enjoy playing anything with it, even though graphically it impressed me highly. The controller was bad enough for me to grow to hate the thing permanently.

    Least favourite. My experience with the PS2 mirrors Mr TrolleyDave's PS1 experience.
    Earlier consoles. I was more or less happy just to play games so I never really paid a lot of attention, I must say I was not overly enamoured with the vic20.

    Computer: I had an S3 virge graphics card at one point, that thing played all of two games properly and even then that was not without serious effort.

    Of all game systems, I would have to say I have played my PSP the least.

    But I love all my consoles! I don't use all my consoles all the time, but I've definitely enjoyed using all of them.

    Least fav.: GBA original. I went blind trying to see it.

    Most fav.: PS2. I still play God Hand and Psi-Ops almost daily.

    Crap touchscreen & crap motion blur, horrible controls & disgraceful sound. Nothing can compare to it, imagine playing Duke Nukem 3D, in black and white but only seeing black due to the motion blur. Makes the original GB blur a welcome thing.

    My least favorite console would be my wii because I dont really use it and the controls still trip up my ass.

    My least favorite computer would be my old old dell because its not worth a damn and its to old to update it.

    Nice New AVAtar trolley and I meant upgrade not update

    Does da 360 have the graphics just like da Peeess tripple?

    Does da 360 have the motion sensing just like da Wii?

    Can be applied to any fanboys. Honestly I don't know where you're meeting yours.
