I don't really "dislike" it so to speak, but the one I became most disappointed with was definitely the Dreamcast. Everyone loves the system but I think it's terribly overrated. Not only I can get most of its games for other systems, but the few original titles are nothing to write home about either. I own about 30 games or so and have found none that's truly compelling. I bought the japanese model and it's nice for collection purposes, but all it does is collect dust alongside the gamecube. My favourite game on it is Zero Gunner 2, but I could have just emulated it on PC. Oh well.

Yes, the DSi.
To be honest, it was a gift, but I was never impressed with the system and what's so good about it.

People say it has a phenomenal library, but I just can't see it. Apart from Pokemon, SRT and 999 there weren't any games I really liked on that system, there's a TON of shovelware, Mario games didn't appeal to me at all, and I felt like most games that were supposed to be good were designed for kids.

Nowadays I literally use it as a weight so my game/movie cases get stable on the shelf.

I've owned: NES/SNES/Genesis/N64/PS2/Gamecube/Xbox/360/Wii/PS3. I don't regret buying those I've bought or regret owning any of those that I got as gifts, but the two I've found the least use for over time are the Wii and the Genesis.

I honestly regret getting the PSP. There were never any games I wanted for it, or REALLY enjoyed playing. The battery was crappy, and the memory sticks, when they first came out, were outrageously expensive. (I remember a 1 GB stick costing 100 dollars.)

Now I just want to sell the thing and all the games I have for it, but no one I know wants them and I'm afraid to trade it all into Gamestop, after hearing so many horror stories of how people get royally ripped off there.

For the past few years it's just been a hunk of plastic, sitting in a drawer with various game console hookups, gathering dust.

No. But then I came perilously close to getting an iPad.

360. I bought it in anticipation for a game or two and thought it would be a perfect compliment. It turned out to have nothing I wanted and to only cause me years of discomfort and money loss. Nothing about it was good. I think the only reason people think they like it is because everyone they know plays it and they think THEY like it. Bandwagoning you know?

Had to be the PSP, but I don't have one anymore. It made me so frustrated with Sony products that I thought I was a loyalist until the Vita came out. The Vita actually drove me to get a PS3. Still hate the XMB but... at least it's not the PSP. The PSP just had horrible controls and ugh the XMB....

Most of the good games payable dsi were out of print by the time it came out.
