POLL: Best system ever?

Easy one for me. Has to be the PS2. The game lineup is just insanely stellar.

Of course the NES and SNES had great lineups back when Nintendo still had strong 3rd party support, but I have to put the PS2 a little ahead.

ps2 had the largest quantity of excellent games. ps1 and snes are pretty high up there for me though as well.

N64 for holding my favorite games such as Oot,MM,Mario Party 1-2,Super Mario 64,Mario Kart 64,Paper Mario,Kirby 64,and The Rare classics that I have yet to play,but look really awesome.


But soon the Wii U will take the no.1 spot with all great games.

Definitely PS2. It did wonders for its time.

One of the first consoles to begin online gaming. (SOCOM II anyone?)
First console to play DVD movies? This was huge during the DVD craze.
Had an insane variety of games in its library. (RPG, Adventure, FPS, Sports, etc.)
Developers loved the console (almost every 3rd party were making games for it exclusively)
Backwards Compatible. (Loved replaying FFVII-FFIX on the PS2)
Many great new IPs were born on it (Jak, Ratchet, Sly, and much more)

Yeah the PS2 was really lightning in a bottle. You rarely see consoles sell that much, or ever? Didnt the PS2 sell like 140 million units? As insanely popular as the Wii was, it didnt even break a 100.

The PS2 has the best developer support Ive ever seen, probably in the history of consoles because it was in so many homes. Every dev wanted to get their games out on that thing.

In fact the PS2 was such a big deal and so dominant, that it actually changed Nintendo forever. After that Nintendo gave up trying to go head to head with Sony with a powerful machine and did a 180 and headed down the casual gaming route.

Yeah...not all of us are blind loyalists. I just like quality games, no matter what platform they come out on.

And to stay on topic, I'd say PS1/SNES are a pretty close second.

There is absolutely no denying that PS2 was third party gaming heaven.
