With these favorite consoles from each company polls hitting VGC, I just thought I'd ask what your gaming experience looks like based on your primary console of each generation. I'll do mine first to show what I'm looking for. I know many are going to want to include two per generation or gaming cycle, but I'm hoping we can do our best to stick with the system that makes the most sense.

You can make a separate handheld list if you like. Or, if the DS was your primary means of gaming during its lifespan then you could include it in your main list.
