Forums - Gaming Discussion - Vote War: Best Console of All Time

Seventizz said:
You eliminate the Xbox which launched Halo, Forza - the industry leaders in their genres to this day, the groundwork for the best controller in the industry, the console that perfected online gaming we know of today, and eliminated silly memory cards? Yet you keep consoles you've never touched and know little about, and consoles that killed the company's hardware future? Huh?

Flawed thread is flawed. The Xbox deserves to be in the top 5 - at least. Today's consoles would be much different beasts had the Xbox not have existed. That makes it 'important' to say the least.

Title just says "Best Console of All Time" not most important one.
I think its a matter of which games the system's had, thats decideing how people vote.

The OG xbox didnt have 1 Final Fantasy game right?
PS2 could played all the PS1 games, and it has FF10 & 10-2, FF11, FF12 ect. ontop of a large amount of other meaningfull franchises that just didnt come to the Xbox.

You think most of the voters have ever played a Magnavox, Intellivision, Turbo Graphix, 32X, Neo Geo CD, or Colecovision?

i highly doubt it.  I doubt they could even rattle off a game or two without googling them.

Thats why those systems are gonna kick the bucket soon too.
But I agree Xbox should have lasted longer than it did.

Quit complaining and work with the guidelines of the thread.

My grandfather had an Intellivision, and I liked it so much, I bought my own years later.  His favorite games were PGA Golf and PBA Bowling.  My favorites were/are Snafu, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Swords and Serpents, Dracula.  We had a Colecovision in our house growing up, and I also bought myself one years later.  My dad's favorite game was Carnival.  My favorite games were/are B.C.'s Quest for Tires, Smurfs:  Rescue from Gargamel's Castle, Mr. Do, Bump n' Jump, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Venture, Mouse Trap, Lady Bug, Star Wars:  The Arcade Game, Popeye, Zaxxon, Space Fury, Burger Time, Root Beer Tapper, & Q*Bert.  Colecovision was known as "The Arcade Quality" home console in its day.

I don't disagree that XBox went too soon, and 360 is heading that way as well.  I've voiced that opinion in this thread all ready.

Since OP only gave guidelines for giving + and not -, I'll continue giving - to consoles I feel have the highest potential to compete with my +.
Unless everyone should only give - to consoles they think are the worst, then I'll change my vote.

You can assess that games you've never played or a console you've never played probably isn't for you just by looking. It's not always the best way to gauge how fun something is, but some times that's all you need. And some times it's all you have to go on.
It's not a stretch to assume that many young kids today probably wouldn't enjoy Atari games as much as more current games, because they grew up in different times with different standards.

And yeah, this is "best" console, not "most important".
I don't like having the D-pad where the Xbox controller has it, nor do I care for Halo, Forza, etc. So for me, out of the remaining consoles on the list Xbox would be at the bottom, only above Sega 32X, Atari 7800, ColecoVision, Magnavox Odyssey2, Intellivision, Game Gear, TurboGrafx-16, Atari 2600.
I played none of those systems except Game Gear.

Makes more sense to - the worst and + the best. No way PS1 is worse than sone of the systems rated above it.
