    Not the graphics, the actual machine itself.

    For me it will always be my Megadrive. Japanese one, with a blue reset button and purple inlay. Mmmmmm.

    Definitely the Dreamcast, small, perfectly formed and basically lovely.

    Visually I always thought the SNES was great looking.

    Ugliest console - the N64 by a LONG way.

    Even makes the new DS look attractive!

    GC. Small, compact and a masterpiece in design.

    /glares at Xbox.

    Dreamcast probably gets my vote too. Although the small PSOne maybe beats it. Or maybe Cube.

    ugliest, maybe Xbox for being so bloddy big.

    Gamecube. Especially purple.

    I rather liked my turquoise N64 though.

    I vote for the Cube as well. It's sooooo cute!

    PS2 is awful. What were they thinking?!

    SNES first (Euro version), DC a reasonably close second. Worst looking (and cheapest looking) console is probably the Jaguar.

    It's gotta be a wood-veneer Atari.

    The Gamecube. Even if the games on it doesn't appeal to me I must admit that Nintendo did a great job designing the thing.

    I think you'll find the CD-32 is the worst looking design in history and the gamepads are easily the shittiest in creation.

    Silver GBA.

    PSOne is probably my favourite. Nice, clean, discrete design. Of the current gen, the Cube is nice to look at but not the most practical shape for storage by the telly.

    I really like the fact you can store the PS2 on its end, but otherwise it's pretty fugly.

    NES is my fav, just a box with a nice load mechanism, exactly what i want, nothing to make you hate it, an understated masterpiece.

    Worst, ps2

    Worst Pad, dreamcast, at the time it was great, now i just can't stick it with its hard plastic and general feeling of cheapness.

    The PSOne or the SNES (EU/Jap version).

    Visually I'd go with the GC but I so want to say DC, even the insides are nice and they didn't cheat and put the power brick on the outside.

    Black GC - though anyone who adulterates it with one of those branded, plastic top inserts should be first up against the wall . . . .

    The Snes. Just looking at it makes me feel comfortable and happy. Same feeling I get when I look at Mario's countenance. I think Mario might be god.

    Yeah GBA-SP or Dreamcast for me and the Xbox has to be one of the worst designed things I have ever seen...perhaps some teak veneer might have helped it
