Greatest System Ever?

#1 Posted by SarazinRuin (157 posts) -

I say it is. What about you?

#2 Posted by Joker (675 posts) -

Yes it was because it had Lost Vikings.

#3 Posted by suneku (2997 posts) -

it's close at least

#4 Posted by LouChou (458 posts) -

Yeah, SNES had Mario Paint. Instant success.

#5 Posted by Schizoid (1064 posts) -

I prefer the Dreamcast. Sorry guys, don't kill me!

#6 Posted by Axersia (1621 posts) -

Nope, I say PS2.

#7 Posted by GlamFm (8 posts) -

By far. So many great games... So many good years.

And btw! Best Mario Kart ever.

No...SNES was a pretty damn good system...

#9 Posted by solidphoenix (286 posts) -

SNES is definitely the Greatest System Ever.
The games, and just the significance of the franchises that debuted and were refined on the system are just amazing.
PS2 is close second in my opinion.

#10 Posted by Neorub (164 posts) -

Yes awesome system, I have two for some reason.

#11 Posted by jlaudio7 (326 posts) -

I'd have to agree with you. Sadly, I think i might've sold it years ago. :(

Unquestionably my favorite system ever.  I'm sure it's half nostalgia talking, but it really doesn't matter... I doubt I'll ever have as much fun gaming as I did back in the early to mid 90's with my SNES.

Sega CD
Sega CD <.< >.> Yup I just said that.

Agreed, tho I could see why some would not say so because the SNES was filled with RPGs which I loved!

#17 Posted by RocketKnightKenny (14 posts) -

I regret having sold most of my SNES games on Ebay, though. I want them back.

#18 Posted by pause422 (6272 posts) -

not even close.

#19 Posted by xruntime (1920 posts) -

I was never a console person. If I had to choose one, it would be Nintendo 64.

PC = best system ever

#20 Posted by MikauBodom (2 posts) -

For sure, Snes has the two best Final Fantasy ever, which are  IV and VI (sorry, Cloud and Sephiroth fanboys), with no doubt the BEST action rpgs ever (Terranigma, Secret of Mana, Zelda: LttP...), the best and most frantic Contra, the two ULTIMATE 2D platform games (Donkey Kong Country series and Yoshi's Island), Mario Kart, Super Mario All-stars is the biggest killer app in history aside from Tetris for GB...and it goes on like this.
So, veredict: Best. System. Ever. The only system that could be near Snes would be Game Boy or the original NES
It would be great if developers stopped creating so many fancy graphics and they tried to achieve such gameplay and fun that Snes games have.The only hope nowadays for old school gamers like us is the NDS I think, there are lots of remakes out there from Snes classics and even japan-only releases

In terms of consoles? PS2>_SNES.

One of the sturdiest at least. Things fucking indestructible.

SNES is indeed the greatest system in existence.

#25 Posted by zerok (180 posts) -

For me personally SNES and PS2 are basically en par here. Both had some of my absolute favorite games of all times :D

#26 Posted by clarke0 (1077 posts) -

Definitely. No other console can compare to its greatness. It had so many amazing games.

#27 Posted by CitizenKane (10513 posts) -

For me it is.

#28 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

It always comes down between the N64, SNES, PS2, NES and Xbox 360 for me (yes, the last one counts). I always say N64, but SNES is probably my #2, and it had a plethora of amazing games.

#29 Edited by Ben_H (3503 posts) -

But I thought the Genesis did what Nintendon't?

For me it's a tie between SNES and the N64.

The memories of playing Mario Kart and Donkey Kong Country for days on end with my cousins definitely makes the SNES a contender.  Though the hundreds of hours of Mario Kart 64 and Super Smash Brothers along with games like Rogue Squadron and Banjo Kazooie really make the 64 stick out more.  That song from Spiral Mountain in Banjo Kazooie will forever be stuck in my head.

I would say that the SNES tops my list of greatest systems of all time.

2. PS1
3. Genesis
4. Dreamcast
5. Atari 2600
#32 Posted by PureRok (4236 posts) -

Is it sad that I like 2D games more often than 3D, especially when it comes to RPGs?

#33 Posted by MrsIronNipples (45 posts) -

The best system is probably the PS1.  It had games for everyone.

However, my favorite is still dreamcast.

#34 Posted by gunswordfist (576 posts) -

I personally think Genesis is the best. I like Sega's exclusives more than Nintendo's. Sonic The Hedgehog 2>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>All Super Mario game (or any platformer for that matter)

#35 Posted by Bucketdeth (8057 posts) -

Yeah, I loved the snes, but I was young and traded it, I'll buy one off ebay sometime again.

That's a pretty good list.PureRok said:

No, it's not sad at all. Well, let me rephrase that. There seems to be more great 2D games (well at least IMO) because it's much harder to make a good 3D game. So many series have failed to be good in 3D (Earthworm Jim, Final Fight, etc.)

No system is the absolute "best". 

#40 Posted by bartok (2605 posts) -

I love the SNES but to be honest I had the most fun with the PS2.

#41 Posted by matthias2437 (985 posts) -

PC=best system ever. Done and done.

#42 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

PS2 - Single player

Xbox - Multiplayer
