    Best machine? Dreamcast.
    Unless you count games in. Then it's the SNES. Games were way too awesome for the theoretical power of that machine.

    I think the N64 was really good and had alot of good games, however I think that it had quite a few drawbacks (not that none of the others didn't) in that the Analog sticks hurt your fingers like hell, and you'd sometimes have to choose between what felt to me, as the weirdest hand positions ever. The Graphics were good, but it just seem that the textures wern't all that fantastic and they covered up the pixels with excessive use of fog. To the stuff that you can't cover up with fog? Well, we'll blur it instead! That said, Goldeneye on it's own pretty much made the console, not to mention Perfect Dark, Mario 64 and Mario Cart 64.

    Personally I chose the PS1 as my nostalgia value with it is greater. I remember the 1st time I got Tomb Raider 1, seeing that giant T-Rex coming at me from a distance... I remember the 1st time I found out the truth as to what happened to Nanaki's Father (FFVII) and the the 1st time I went through the corridor of corpses after the gas filled room in Metal Gear Solid.

    Ah memories.

    Invested in a USB controller and some emulating software and fired up the old Super Mario All Stars (SNES)... Can't beat the classics. By todays standards (platforming anyway...) Super Mario was brutal. There is none of this 'checkpoint in the middle of the level' crap, lose all your lives? Start from the beginning of the world douche! It's like playing my childhood. I <3 you SNES!

    Recommend it, I've been happily emulating all week. And I've cured my WoW addiction! Though not my MMOC addiction... yet!

    Tough choice really...I wish I could've picked more, but I went with Snes.

    My favorites:
    NES: Really changed console gaming as a whole. Started the mario franchise and had some of the most memorable games of all time.

    SNES: Basically a better version of the NES. Also, the controller is now what pretty much ever game controller is based off of.

    N64: Definitely some of the best games ever. Goldeneye, Mario Kart, SSB, NFL Blitz, etc. The first (maybe?) to have 4 controller ports, making gaming a bigger group activity. Only downside was the controller. Crappy joystick, the C buttons, inconvenient (and often useless) D Pad...I just straight hated that controller - the Z button was cool though.

    PS/PS2: Personal nostalgia... I didn't have any Nintendo consoles. I liked alot of the games - and memory cards were a plus. The later controllers had built in vibration, and were maybe the first to do so - as well as the first wireless controllers I used. PS2's ability to play PS1 games was something that Nintendo should've done much sooner. Also the first (again...maybe?) to have a built in DVD player. Unfortunately, PS2 didn't offer much more in gameplay features other than much improved graphics.

    XBOX 360: Did wonders for online gaming, and is far better than the PS3 in my opinion. Great controllers (after they fixed those god awful original ones).

    Sega Gamegear (not on list): Best handheld system for its time. Its graphics were much better than the Gameboy's and it had a backlit screen - something that Nintendo didn't add for like 10 more years. Sure it was big and clunky - but worth it.

    Snes because FF6 is far superior.

    Sega Genesis all the way. Mine is still plugged in.
    Sonic was not as good as Mario. But it had Toe Jam and Earl is my all time favorite game. Lost Vikings to my knowledge first console game with more the 2 players, with the multi tap. General choas, always fun. Also upgrade able, Sega cd and 32x. Never had either but always thought it was a neat feature.

    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hatred, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    Sega Megadrive, GameGear and the N64 are all awesome.

    Re: Best gaming console EVER!?

    Tough choice between the classic Nintendo systems...

    Voted N64 just because It is most likely what got me into gaming even though i played the hell out of my Sega and SNES.

    This. Anyone who started their FF days with 7 missed out on some epic games. 7 sucked imo, too much emo-ness. But I did <3 9.

    Voted N64.. OOT = Greatest Game Ever!
