I stopped reading when I saw Snes in 11/12 position. Sorry


No problem. To be honest, I expected a lot more rage for that ranking.



Love and tolerate.

I'd probably put GC at number 1. That is the console I remember having the most fun with day 1 with SSBM, Luigi's Mansion, Super Monkey Ball and Rogue Squadron 2.  Sure SSBM wasn't available at launch but it released that holiday season (I got GC for Christmas).  So it was launch for me.  I hardly ever buy systems on official launch day.  I didn't get the Wii till Smash and Kart came out.  I probably should have held off my Wii U purchase till MK8 but I've used my Wii U decently (not lately since working so much).

It's not rage, I just can't agree with it, but you are free to have your opinions, as I'm too, and IMO, Snes is still the best Nintendo Console (obviously not technically), and if it ranked low than EVERY other console, I just can't agree. But won't rage, be happy xD

Actually, the SNES is my favorite Nintendo console too. I just think the actual launch day was lacking. Virtually every other day after launch day offered great and amazing games, but I just focused on the launch for the purposes of these rankings.

Wii u is clearly the worst was suppose to have all these big games then all the silence starting appearing and then there were crickets



Started gaming on PS3 3/6/14 :)

What time frame do you consider launch? Day 1 only, 1st week, month, 2 months etc.?


Just the first day on the market. Otherwise, I'd be ranking the SNES and GameCube higher and the N64 and Wii U lower.

I really like the SNES and its game library. If we were to count all of latter 1991 as the "launch window," then games like Final Fantasy 2/4, Final Fight, UN Squadron, Actraiser, and Super Castlevania 4 would have pushed it a bunch of spots ahead. And though I'm not as big a GameCube fan, if we were to include Pikmin and Super Smash Bros Melee as part of the launch lineup, it'd be ahead of the NES IMO. However, I was only counting launch day. And back during the SNES and GameCube launches, a lot of the biggest and best games came out weeks later.

 

And to everybody saying I got the NES price wrong... I'm not counting the 1985 limited release that only happened in New York City. From what I can find, a roughly $100 bundle with SMB was available by the time the NES launched nationwide in 1986.

I don't know where you did your research, but I bought a gameless Control Deck set in '88 for $199. The Mario/Duck Hunt bundle was more still, I think $250. That's Canadian, so you can deduct $25-50 off those prices for US prices in '88.
