For me, it really depends. Favorite Overall Console? PS2. Favorite Platform Overall? PC.

PC >>>> PS2 >> PS4 > PS3 > SNES > PS1 >> Vita > NES > Commodore 64 > WiiU > Atari 2600 > PSP >> Gameboy

Mostly ordered by how much I like the game libraries of each system and lightly influenced by how much time I actually spend (or spent) with each.

My favorite platforms and reasons.

  1. PS3 ]>
    I was among the smart ones and held out until Sony fixed the overheating issue. Wasn't that impressed with removal of backwards compatibility, but at least the redesigned console wasn't having a major system malfunctions and eating up enough money in service plan fees to buy two more consoles. At this point I also needed a console with a much bigger hard drive for my RPGs and their expansions. Was also needing a cheap replacement for internet use until a better reliable option came along for that. I was done waiting on Microsoft's empty promises to properly fix their console and needed something that would work. The 250 GB slim had it and even gave me upgraded options for proper HD entertainment, in the form of Blu-ray.

  2. Xbox 360 ]>
    It had backwards compatibility and upgraded versions of the games I wanted to play, including sequels to titles I absolutely loved on the Xbox. PS3 Fat also had backwards compatibility, but was otherwise fast becoming a overpriced hot mess. I didn't need that in my online gaming life and I stuck with what worked so well for me the last console generation. Its just unfortunate the system problems on the PS3 Fat would soon come to my console and ruin for me personally everything that made the original Xbox so great.

  3. Xbox ]>
    At this point my library was huge and I needed a console with serious options. I was all for something to give me file storage that did not entail multiple memory cards and a spreadsheet to keep track of them all. I was also a little burnt the Dreamcast crashed and burned. Was not even close to ready for going back to PC. That platform was still a hot mess of endless Windows issues and strictly a rich man's gaming platform. I needed something familiar to the experience I got with my Dreamcast and at least offered online gaming. This machine delivered what so many of us were needing in consoles. To this day it has given me the best gaming experience of any console in my entire collection. Microsoft had something special with this package and did nothing to follow up. They claim the Xbox One X is that answer... we will see.

  4. Dreamcast ]> Hate me for putting this guy fourth, but it did not endure or last. Sega essentially shot themselves in the foot, by failing to get behind this thing properly within the strongest video game market on the planet... The United States. Many great memories were made on this machine and the reality of making a console competitive to the PC was clearly a reality. You even had a mouse and keyboard for the proper internet experience. Way better than WebTV. Sega did have plans to upgrade and go further, but once again failed to deliver. They pretty much gave up. All this aside, I did have absolutely amazing experiences unique to this console. They have not been equaled anywhere else.

No PS2 did not make my top 4. Its singular dominant aspect was an absolutely huge library and backwards compatibility. Features swiftly trumped by my selections. As for the portable systems, none of them had the one thing I needed the most for my on-the-go gaming environment... durability.

For me,

  1. Super Nintendo (I love the aesthetic of that era, and the music that came out of it is absolutely top-tier.)
    2.Playstation 2 (Arguably played this one a lot more in my youth than I did SNES, probably nostalgia fueled but i remember this system having tons of fantastic games that still hold up)
  2. Xbox 360 (Got to this one while i was in high school, played this more than any other console under the sun. The memories with friends and all the late night matches of Halo 3 are the some of my favorite)

For me:

  1. PC - Began playing pc games in the 1980's and never stopped playing. The platform offers a huge library both new and old and there is always something to play. Both birthplace and playing ground for new types of games as well as a great backlog of classics. Evolves with the technology.
  2. PS4 - Didn't bother with PS1 and PS2, PS3 has just an awful interface, especially when dealing with digital games. PS4 is just a good gaming machine with really a lot of good games to be played that can be found nowhere else.
  3. X360 - Still up to this day a good machine that has evolved with time (digitals). Great controller, good game series
  4. Gamecube - the best electronic toy ever, indestrucatble
