Forums - Gaming Discussion - EDITED: The N64 is actually the least trashiest console

Thank you JGL and SMBBlake for providing the data both games scoring +90% and amount of games per console

ps4 33/2704=0.012
PS3 49/2204=0.022
Ps2 58/4489=0.012
ps1 28/3070=0.009
one 20/2523=0.007
360 54/2085=0.025
OGX 30/1000=0.030
switch 18/2540=0.007
wii 14/1546=0.009
wii u 8/773=0.010
GC 26/658=0.039
n64 16/388=0.041

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Don't we have like... three topics now about 90+% games? This probably could have just gone in one of those.

this one actually does something with the data instead of being irrelevant

Irrefutable logic.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

You forgot N64, 16 90+ games according to the other thread.
16/296=0.054, once again confirming that N64 reigns supreme as the greatest console in history.

Could very well be true, I had no idea, did a quick search and wrote down the first number I saw lol. But its okay, as long as N64 wins, I don’t care how.

388 games is tiny, the library size was small.
That said, I personally enjoyed the n64 way more than the gamecube (which had more games).

Nintendo 1st party are so good, that a handfull of games, can matter more than overall library size.
Back in the day the n64 was a fantastic console.

I wouldnt call it the least trashiest console however (which in itself is a silly ranking).


What actually stands out most about this list, is how many games the playstation/xbox consoles get compaired to nintendo.
Winning the "least" trashy console by way of haveing almost no games, seems like a odd way to judge things.

Switch library looks like a huge step up compaired to older consoles from nintendo.


I think the best way to rank "least trashy" consoles, would be by how many games total, a system has, over a certain metacritic score.
Like if you count every game thats "good" in score (like 70+).

sounds good but that would randomly arbitrary instead of just taking the 90% games as part of the whole library

What I mean is.... what does it matter how many bad games a systme has?
Surely what matters is how many good games each system has? and not the % they make up.

Ei. the least trashy, should be the one with the highest amount (total number) of good games.
