So, what has been your favourite home console generation to date? What makes it stand out over the others for you - is it the games, the hardware, or perhaps your memories of playing it? What would you like to see/expect to see for the ninth generation - if indeed you think there will be a ninth generation at all?

    N64 is by far the best console for me. I have alot of games for that console I love so much and this was my childhood.

    For me, it's a battle between 5 and 6.

      It's really not easy for me to decide. I love NES and Megadrive so much for their 'simplicity', the visuals were beautiful in a special way you can't recreate in modern graphics because every pixel mattered, and the way the games worked, and the ways they were designed.
      Even though I am part of the generation that came after that really, I always prefer to play those older games when I have some free time to waste.

      But then, I really love how later generations added a lot more complex possibilities in engines and game dev. I mean when I got my first Playstation 2 and Gamecube as a kid they really blew my mind with how much the games could make me feel like I was really seeing into a whole pretend world.

      Also, I really love more types of user interface and input devices (maybe those are not the correct terms) like Wii remotes. Although I know many people did not like it, the Motion Plus Wii remote is still my all time best controller setup for anything ever, it really is relaxing and fun to me to use it. Like I can spend hours playing Rune Factory with it, or just mess around on an FPS for a minute, or use it to play DOS point and click games from all around my apartment without any problems, it's really great for me. I want to find a way to control my computers like that lol.
      If I'm talking a lot, tell me to stop squandering my free time, and to go and work on my hack!

        The current generation is my favorite, I have so many games that I am having a blast with.

        As for the future, MS is going to basically only release consoles that can run games from x1 forward. I'm hoping Sony releases the ps5 that is bc, but new games more or less I figure will only be on the ps5. Which the ps5 is all but confirmed at this point, but we are just waiting for the official specs.

        Went with 6th gen! It was a toss up between 6/7 for me, but for me 6th generation had a lot more fun memories associated with it, GameCube parties and staying up late playing PS2 with my cousin.

        I know this was home consoles only, but for handhelds the GBA and original DS will always have a soft spot in my heart, I played the crap out of those consoles.
