    That list is wrong. There is no Atari 7200. Should be 7800.

    The N64 had a very small library especially compared to the psx, BUT, all the great games on the N64 were top notch. There is probably a collection of 20-25 fucking great games on that system. And at the end of the day, thats really all you're going to need with a single console.

    I voted for the N64. A lot of my favorite games are there. Mario 64, Super Smash Bros., all of Rareware's hits, etc.

    other: PC
    I used to be a PC master race until 2006 when I bought my first console(a GBA SP. I was 16 at that time, hard earned money). man PC has so many to offer and sure the 90's where the best period to have a PC, DooM, Duke 3D, Jazz Jackrabbit and many others from that time that I can't remember all of them. I was even able to emulate NES, Genesis and SNES so no problem with that.

    For me it had to be SNES, I have played them all and own most of them to this day but the SNES just was fantastic.

    Such a great machine, lots of colors, big sprites, sound that didn't make your ears bleed. Launch games features automatic slow motion for when things got too intense!!! I think they call it bullet time these days?

    I forgot
    Fixed it for you.

    As for the topic, I went Other because somehow you forgot to list the PS1. There are so many excellent games for the PS1 available with tons of different genres, it offered something for everyone. I still haven't completed my backlog of all the great PS1 games, and I probably won't for ages.

    It is hard to choose - the highest Nintendo's ever been... or the lowest. :)
    Especially Superman64, Carmageddon 64, Daikatana, both of the terribad Castlevanias, Mega Man "Almost Legends" 64... Yup, staples of that 64-bit quality. :)

    Depends on whatcha mean by retro x3 if 2 generations ago counts then the gamecube and GBA most certainly for me. An if beyond that I'd say I'm all for sega genesis for a classic gaming system. The days of Ristar, Shining Force, and Streets of rage <3

    Goodness though do I wish I grew up with a dreamcast or saturn x3
