Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best debut console

 

I think the best is...

NES 31 43.06%
 
PS1 34 47.22%
 
Xbox 7 9.72%
 
Total:72

Which debut console of the big three do you think was the best, and why?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Gameboy.



OG Xbox for me. NES was before my time, and I was a Sega boy when PS1 released. OG Xbox brought me back from a bit of gaming slump and turned me from a more casual gamer into a core gamer. Halo, Fable, KOTOR, Morrowind, Dead of Alive, and more OG Xbox had alot of good games.

NES. Greatest console ever made.



Well... I like PS4/PS2> PS1.

Gamecube/Wii U/SNES/N64 > NES

But...

OG Xbox> 360>XB1

So I guess MS had the best debut console imo, but everything downhill since then.

I’m giving it to the NES. The NES got me into gaming in a big way and launched so many great series.

I also loved the PS1 for its then unprecedented RPG library. It was the closest thing Squaresoft ever had to having its own console.



Without NES there is no PS1 or Xbox. NES transformed the industry. PS1 helped evolve it but it needs NES to exist first. NES also gave one of the most influential games and most successful series of all time in Mario.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

NES, no question.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1-3
Megaman 1-6

..

PS1 list with big name titles goes on and on.
Its debut was without a doubt bigger than the NES's.

NES was just the first. So in a historical sense, and what it ment for the industry its the biggest.
In terms of better games? the PS1.
(670-700 NES games vs 3100+ on the PS1, the NES had like 1-2 handfull of must own games, PS1 had much more)

"I think the best is.."

I think this question refers to the games? right.
Theres no question about the historical nature of the NES and its impact.
So the question is which had the better games?

Final Fantasy and all the wonderfull RPGs the PS1 had, def. makes it the winner.

Still the NES. 3/4 of the PS1 library has aged badly.
