well title says it all vote for your fav console of all time, and if you like stating why and your favourite game for it.

mine is the sega master system (first one i owned and the best possibly due to sentimentality, fav game double dragon)

if ive forgot any significant consoles on the poll please tell me and ill update it.

Playstation because when I upgraded from my SNES I thought OMFG, this is brilliant. I do love the SNES though ( I can't beleive I got rid of it :() and I'm going back to Nintendo now by getting a Wii.

If this had portable consoles like the PSP and DS then the original gameboy would definately get my vote, I plan to keep mine forever :D

My vote goes to the PS2. I had two in about 10 years. The best thing back then was that it had a build in dvd player. And the new one is my favorite. Nice and compact.

im not being biased i just believe in freedom of speech :p so someone speak up for this baby console and tell me why it should wipe out 15/20 years of consoling history :nutkick:

The Super Nintendo is my favourite console of all time :) Who could forget classics like Super mario World, Super Mario Kart & Street Fighter II...I could go on, the list is endless ;) I can remember playing Mortal Kombat on the SNES until I made my thumbs bleed (literally!) :eek:

Those were the good ol' days, when Nintendo WAS the king of consoles:)

But I am impressed with my XBOX360 now ;)
