I thought this was going to be the saddest retaliation thread ever, but it turned out to not be terrible. A little silly, perhaps - I'm guessing anyone here is in it for the games. If they wanted the most powerful 3rd party machine they'd get a PC.
Personally, the NES & SNES were eclectic, with a crazy good mix of genres and fresh 1st & 3rd party, in good quantity. And to my tastes, the PlayStation systems have been the true inheritors of that particular cocktail recipe.
