What are people's least favorite console per generation? We'll start with the Third Gen and run through the Seventh Gen since the PS4 & Xbox One haven't come out yet. You can choose just the big ones from a gen or include the smaller ones if you so choose.


Third Gen (NES, SMS, Atari 7600)
Fourth Gen (SNES, Genesis, TurboGrafx-16, Neo Geo, CD-i)
Fifth Gen (PS1, N64, Saturn, 3DO, Jaguar)
Sixth Gen (PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, Dreamcast)
Seventh Gen (Wii, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm only picking out of the one's I've played which are primarily the major consoles

3rd: Only played NES
4th: Genesis(Really only played Sonic series on it)
5th: Saturn(can't choose between PS1 and N64)
6th: Gamecube(Glorified Melee machine for me)
7th: PS3(1st half)/Xbox360(second half)
I lost the game!

3. Master System. Lack of support
4. CD-I. Total Failure
5. Jaguar. Controller was a joke. No games.
6. Xbox. Halo don't impress me.
7. Wii. Only for lack of HD and third party support. Waggily controls are not nedded. But love my Zelda.

Third Gen (NES, SMS, Atari 7600) I never had a 7600, but I like the 7800 okay. I guess 7600 then?
Fourth Gen (SNES, Genesis, TurboGrafx-16, Neo Geo, CD-i) CD-i
Fifth Gen (PS1, N64, Saturn, 3DO, Jaguar) 3DO
Sixth Gen (PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, Dreamcast) Wouldn't want to choose. I like them all.
Seventh Gen (Wii, PS3, Xbox 360) All good.

Gen3 - Only had NES
Gen4 - Preferred my Genesis over SNES
Gen5 - Preferred my PS1 over my N64
Gen6 - Preferred my XBox over GC and PS2
(don't make me choose between those two)
Gen7 - Preferred my Wii over my PC, over my 360, over my PS3

I can't honestly say I disliked any of my systems though, with the exception of the PS3.

Oh, and I just recently got my Dreamcast. That's why it isn't up there.

TurboGrafx
PS1 (due to failure rate caused by overheating I used to have to fix these a lot)
PS2 (pain in the royal rear end to repair as there were a pile of revisions with diff parts in each)
xbox 360 (no longer repaired systems at this point it just it has nothing at all I ever would want to play on it the PS3 had at least one game I wanted to play or it would be a tie)

My least favorite consoles per participated generation:
Gen 4: Sega Genesis
Gen 5: None. I never owned a 5th gen home console but I do own a Game Boy Color. But I have played both an N64 and PS1 and I liked the N64 more so, PS1.
Gen 6: Tricky... probably PlayStation 2 since I only had 3rd party games for it. The only console I owned without owning any 1st party titles.
Gen 7: PlayStation 3, because I didn't play it much. My older cousin quickly sold it after we got one so I barely got to experience it. If I do get on, then it may switch places with the Wii.
Gen 8: I only owned a Wii U (and 3DS) right now but the Xbox One is going to be my least favorite. Got PS4 pre-ordered but haven't pre-ordered a game yet.

3-Atari 7800
4-Genesis (Although I really like it), or TG16 if it counts.
5-Saturn (Never had one)
6-PS2, least great games, although XBox wasnt exactly loaded with great games either
7-XBox 360, I just cant stand their approach to gaming.
Sega is what EAin't - Crazy_Tank51
Wont buy a non-Nintendo console until people stop pretending Nintendo doesn't count.
