Wrong forum, this thread would best belong in Other Games.

The handheld ones, Nintendo DS and Gameboy Advance. Most of my favorite games are from those consoles.

GBA, SNES and PS1 hold most of my favourites. The games for those consoles are timeless for me, unlike most last gen games.

My votes are for:
Nintendo DS. One of my favorites as I can't put it down!

Nintendo 64. Had some of my other favorite games on it.

Ninety? 0.0'. How many letters do you see in the word "WTHIWWU"?

My fave is just the Wii. Because mom never let me play the XBOX line or the PS3, not even the PSP, and the hell not with any of the classics.

But I am finding it confusing that some people even vote for the Nostagic Games. They are not that good in Century 21, people -_-...

Yes they are. And, in fact, much better than most games that come out nowadays.
Good games are games that can be played now and will be played even more in the future. You could pick up Super Mario World back in 1990 and have blast and pick it up right now and have just as much fun. You can't say that for most recent games because in one year or two, a new, better version of it will be released and you'll just forget about the first one.

And by what I understand from your post, you have never played these classics. You really should, before making a rather stupid statement like that.

I have a fat Black PS2, Wii, GBC, GBA SP. Between those four, here's my order.

1st - PS2
2nd - Wii
3rd - GBA SP
4th - GBC

PS2 is a very awesome console since I can do some DRR exercise. : 3

Secondly, I enjoy the old school games, probably because i was brought up with a Atart 2600 in my house, and it provided me with hours of entertainment.

My votes?

Gameboy Color
:] My first console ever! I adored this thing and spent so, so much time playing it. Even though, looking back, I only had a handful of games. XD; Pokémon series ftw!

Nintendo 64
Second console and first TV console. We used to rent one from Blockbuster once a month until my parents realized it would be a lot cheaper to just buy us one. XDD Ever since we... end up getting consoles no problem--very little begging (if any!) involved these days but man did we feel the begging paid off back then. Loved this console to pieces and I still like most of the titles we had for it.

Playstation 2
I didn't have an Xbox last gen and... well, I had a Gamecube and adored Melee and Symphonia, but considering I've probably put waaaaay over 1000 hours total into my PS2, it gets the crown. I love it so much that I've got two. XD One for me, one for my brother. He missed it too much when I insisted on taking it away with me for school. (If our PS3 were one of the BC ones, we wouldn't have needed a second and it'd get a lot more playtime. XD) But yeah, with Kingdom Hearts, Tales of the Abyss, Final Fantasy, etc., it's just gotta be my favourite.

Nintendo DS
While the GBA was fun, it just didn't have the same charm as the DS. I just LOVE the DS. Sure, a lot of games seem really gimmicky with the touch screen and whatnot, but overall I just love the feel of most of the games. It has an impressive library and--best of all--it's portable. I've really preferred portable gaming lately and the DS is most definitely why.

Xbox 360
My newest console (oh wait, that'd be the PSP... oh well) surprisingly is one of my favourites. It's strange, I never EVER thought I'd get an Xbox because I thought it was stupid in last gen and barely even paid attention to it before it got Eternal Sonata but now it trumps all consoles but the DS for how much I play them right now. :B It's just got such a great library and I'm really getting into it.

The great thing about a lot of older games is that, amazing graphics or not, they stand the test of time. They're fun which is what a lot of game developers have neglected in newer games. Sure, a lot of new games are fun for a bit but they don't have the same replay value.

I don't know how old you are, but assuming you're not old enough to have played these retro games, you wouldn't get the nostalgia factor. But I bet one day you'll look back and be thinking "wow, I wish I could play that one Wii game again. I wonder if my Wii would still work if I dug it out?" ;p

This post has offended me in ways I never imagined were possible.

There's a Goddamn reason why they're called "Nostalgic games". >_>

People. I've played the classics before. Geez, you don't have to rep me because of a simple damn opinion. If I say I don't get it, why the waffles am I getting ganged up on? :*|

I would rep you, too, if I could. Most games that came out before 2003 have far higher replay value than many of the games that have come out since around that time. I have plenty of Wii games, but I rarely touch most of them because of how inferior they are.

As for my vote,
NES
The classics. I play the NES occasionally nowadays, and I really prefer most of those games to the likes of SSBB.

Nintendo 64
Pokemon Snap, the Stadiums, SSB, Wave Race 64. All games that were really fun at the time. I don't play any of them anymore though.

GB/GBC
Only got the Pogeyman games for these systems. Had some fun, still play some of those games.

Wii
Most of the games lack good story modes and online modes, but I like the innovations.

DS
Again, innovative. I sort of like DP, but I mainly bought the DS for ACWW. Pictochat was pretty fun the first few times. They should've made it Wi-Fi.

@ AdvancedK9: We aren't ganging up on you at all, but we are just stating our opinions. Though I know it is illegal to download ROMs but why don't you download one (Atari, Commodore64, NES) those type of games, have a go at playing 1 of them, if you don't like it, well then yea you don't like, it will be a different experience for you.

I would go for NDS, PSP, PS2, PS3, XBOX 360, NGC but I only have a GBA SP and a PSP and I enjoy psp too much. The only reason PSP didn't get much votes here is that mostly Pokemon fans come here and there is no Pokemon game in Sony's Consoles.

That statement may be an opinion but you stated it as fact. Maybe next time, to avoid offending some people, you should make sure to write exactly what you mean, so toss in an expression like "I think" or "in my opinion", and explain said opinion, and I bet you won't get quite the backlash. D;

Everyone who voted for EVERY Nintendo console needs to wise up a little. There's no point voting Cube if you voted Wii, Wii plays Cube Games

My votes were in no order

PS3
PS2 (my PS3 isn;t PS2BC)
PSP
GBA
SNES
and Megadrive if it was there.

1. Wii: I think of it as being very innovative aswell as having some of my favorite games.

2.NDS: It's portable so I can bring it with me wherever I go.
It also has alot of cool features make up for some of it's disadvantages.

3.SNES: The SNES is definately my favorite retro consoles. It has some of the best games ever aswell as excellent graphics for it's time.

Those are pretty much my top 3 favorite consoles.

I grew up on Atari and NES.
And they are and will always remain to be my absolute favorites.
Who cares about Graphics anyway?

However, I would like to throw the Sega Genesis and SNES in there too.
They are classic. :]


I do spend a lot of my time on my N64, however, and I did go through the notorious Guitar Hero stage, which has long since passed.

The Original Playstation is pretty kickass too.


Overall.. anything that's old, I probably like it. :]
