Xbox 360.

I had 2 of them and they both died, no warranty.

I had to pay to play online, unlike other systems.

The top games were letdowns compared to Original Xbox.

If only MS never started the "pay to play online" nonsense. Even Nintendo does it now. -_-

Nintendo Switch, it's just collecting dust. Not even my son is playing it anymore.

Its strange how to this day I still prefer my wiiU over the switch, I got so many great games on wiiU so cheap, less than a quarter of the price of games on switch. Stuff like xenoblade chronicles, mario galaxy, mario and luigi U, wonderful 101, pikmin 1, 2 and 3 all with wiimote controls, metroid prime trilogy with wiimote, twilight princess and wind waker in HD, monster hunter Tri HD, Mario 3D world, so many great games on it and cheap, as a bonus I can control my TV from the gamepad (volume, channels).

I don't play portable, never will when I play on a 100inch projector with a very expensive 5.1 system, its hard to play on a 6inch screen with 2 hours battery with horrible audio.

The 3DS.

Good grief, what a steaming pile of goat vomit that system was.

I only got one cos Monster Hunter 4 was exclusive to it, and after Monster Hunter Tri was one of my favourite games of the 7th gen and my most played game of all time, I felt I couldn't miss out on its sequel. 

But the system itself, fucking hell. Just holding it made my hands hurt, the screen was fugly, the second analogue nub was an absolute joke, and every time I played on it, all I could think of was how much better the game would be on a proper console. 

Still to this day the only system I've ever regretted buying, and I've bought over a dozen different consoles.

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

Gamecube. The library was really limited, at least when it comes to games that I personally like. Its the console I've owned that I've used the least.
To a lesser extent the WiiU for the very same reasons. Tho since it was backwards comptaible with the wii I did ended up using it much more than the Gamecube.

The wii,i played mario galaxy and zelda twilight princes etc and gave the console to the children of my brother in law.

I thought I was upgrading from my SNES to something bold and unprecedented. In reality I was having a mistress. It was extremely fun but took all my money and fell apart. I ended up back in the arms of my Nintendo.

I’ve been disappointed with every Sony console except PS3. But I never went in with any hopes so it wasn’t a bad let down. Nothing wrong with their library, just drank the wrong koolaid and brainwashed Myself to think Sony Computer Games were inferior. I feel like a recovering racist. Sad story but i can’t help who I am. Only who I hope to be.

The Game Cube, i just hated the controller and however much i tried, i couldn't continue playing RE4 which i was very excited for.

PSP, handhelds are just not for me.

Second would be Switch.It had the gotg with Breath of the wild, but after Mario I have only touched it a few times to play Mario maker 2 and Tetris99 while the left stick has a nasty drift to it. At least my kids occasionally play with it. I played way more on the WiiU and all those before it.

Wii U.

It just wasn't a good console. With the exception of Mario Kart 8 the best games I played on it were either Wii games or 3rd party games, which says it all.
