So impressed with the PS4. For a bit of fun I decided to look back over the generations to pick out my favourites (in bold) - latest to oldest. I'm also aware that there were other machines around during these era's but these were the "stand out" consoles. I'm also not including PC, Spectrum, C64, Vic 20, Amiga, ST, Vectrex etc - purely consoles but give them a mention if they were your over-riding choice. No flaming / arguments please. Just pick your favourite and the reason. I'm aware there are some timeline crossovers. Just pick your favourite Put an X in brackets if you owned the machines at the time. For reference Video game console - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Eighth Generation Wii U (x) Xbox One (x) PS4 (x) Incredibly impressed this generation with Sony who seem to have learned from their previous mistakes. Early days though... Seventh Generation Wii (x) Xbox 360 (x) PS3 (x) Hands down the 360. Only used the PS3 as a Blu player and for Resistance. Now using much more thanks to PS+ Sixth Generation Dreamcast (x) PS2 (x) Nintendo Gamecube (x) Xbox (x) Another MS win for me. Loved the original Xbox and once hacked was at the time the ultimate media centre (XBMC) Fifth Generation Atari Jaguar 3DO (x) PC-FX Sega 32x Sega Saturn (x) Playstation (x) N64 (x) Sony got it so right this generation. 3D graphics arrived and I hammered my PS until the N64 came along late that gen. Then it was Goldeneye all the way! Close call as I also loved my 3DO. Probably my favourite generation as I spent many hours on those 3 machines. Again, an extremely close call between the PS, 3DO and N64. Fourth Generation Sega MegaDrive / Genesis (x) Neo Geo Super Nintendo (x) Absolutely loved my Snes. Would have no doubt enjoyed the Neo had it not been so prohibitively expensive. Mortal Kombat for the win. Third Generation Nintendo NES Sega Master System Atari 7800 No choice from me this generation as I was a Commodore 64 addict. Didn't own any of this generation's machines. Second Generation Atari VCS2600 (x) Intellivision ColecoVision Oh my Atari. My lovely Atari. So many hours spent with Mum, Dad, Sister, Aunts and Uncles. Proud to have lived through this generation. Was insanely jealous of friend with Intellivision though. CBS Colecovision just wasn't main stream enough but would have loved Donkey Kong! First Generation Binatone 4 in 1 (x) Grandstand Philips Videopac Pong clones This is where it all started. My Dad bringing home a Binatone 4 in 1. God bless you Dad! So many hours spent in front of the TV during the 70's. This is where my love for all things video games started. My, haven't we come a long way.
