    I can't personally think of one less appealing to me than the Wii.

    I mean 'major' consoles, as in not the likes of the N-Gage etc, but you can say that if you want.

    XBOX

    It paved the way for Outrun 2 though, so all is forgiven.

    Initially I was excited about the Wii and the new games it would bring forth. The I played Twilight Princess and, while I really enjoyed the game, realised that the wiimote was largely pointless for the kinds of games that I was looking forward to play.

    I have played a few decent games on it, including Boom Blox, which is superb, and includes good use of the control, but 90% of it's software is gimicky shit.

    It's technically not a bad console, for one it's better than the GameCube, but in terms of it's software it's fucking atrocious. Once I get through what I have left to play it's going.

    For me I hold the 360, PS3 and Wii in the same low regard as it's the generation I'm playing the least games.

    You never must have played Kung Fu Chaos and Fuzion Frenzy with 4 players or Halo with 2 consoles linked together with 4 players on each console.

    They're both pretty much on the same level IMO, but the Jag can be forgiven since Tempest 2000 is still a good game.

    Easily the Wii if it's major consoles only.

    Did you guys even own a 3DO?

    It had the best version of Super Street Fighter II out of any console, it had a brilliant joypad daisy-chain design so you could get 8 players out of just the two ports. It had cutting edge VCD support (yes I know, it's glol now but at the time it was pretty sweet), and the tech was better than anything else out there, including the PSone.

    What killed it was the price tag, the confusing distribution method (multiple manufacturers) and a lack of any killer apps (other than Street Fighter). The console itself was great.

    I think that means you have a 20% chance of being my brother DDevil, you must be the 'good' one.

    No mention of the Virtual Boy? I think any console that can physically harm you deserves bonus points.
  • Deleted user 25 March 2009 19:35:15
    Actually, the saturn was pretty damn good now I'm thinking of the 2D goodness, so I'll retract that and replace it with the Amiga32

    I had the 3DO.Road Rash and the first Need for Speed were awesome.As was Return Fire.I believe the first proper 3D version of FIFA was a 3DO title as well but I never thought much of it (at the time).

    Oooh, how about the Virtual Boy? The only console to take away the fun and replace it with headaches.

    Again, you don't hear many people who own it saying it was shit, it tends to be people who heard it was shit from some third party and passed it on like a Chinese whisper.

    It had the best version of Wario on any platform, some of the puzzles made perfect use of the z-axis and simply couldn't have been done on any other platform, Telro Boxing was v.good and 3 or 4 of the other games were pretty decent (Bomberman, that 3D flight shooting one and the J league game and the boxed in Mario Tennis).

    The headache thing was a load of bollocks, it gave a few people headaches, but these are the same folks who moan about FPS games giving them motion sickness and inverted controls making them into spastics, most people got on fine with it.

    The game-gear was pretty shit from what I recall, because it was a portable master system but had such short battery life that you had to really play it plugged in, so it was a master system which cost more, had a smaller screen, and suffered from dead-pixels on most units.
