RE: Top 10 topic: #16 -- Your favorite consoles!
My bad, I meant to reply weeks ago, but never got back. lol. Here are my favorite consoles of all time.

1. Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)
2. Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
3. Playstation 1
4. Playstation 2
5. Sega Saturn
6. Sega Genesis & Sega CD
7. Nintendo DS
8. Xbox 360
9. Turbografx-16 & CD
10. Playstation 3

Let me explain a little bit about why I chose some consoles in the Top 10. The NES and SNES were dominate (and still are) consoles that took up most of my play time throughout my gaming career. I love them. They're awesome and had the most games that I enjoyed playing.

The Sony Playstation 1 & 2 really, really surprised me. Sony split up from Nintendo and did a terrific job. Those two consoles had so much third-party support that it felt like the NES and SNES all over again.

The Sega consoles (numbers 5 & 6) were my in-between systems. They served as cool systems to play with while waiting for the next generation to come around. In the meantime, both the Saturn and Genesis had some awesome games to boot. I enjoyed them a lot.

The last 4 consoles had some of the best games this past generation. Each console served different genres I wanted to play. For example, the Nintendo DS had some nice adventure titles like Phoenix Wright series, Hotel Dusk, and other mystery/detective-style games. The Xbox 360 had a huge library that covered a lot of ground (similar to the NES), but most of them were subpar with a few great exceptions. Turbografx-16 & CD had some top-notch titles I couldn't play anywhere else. They were nice exclusives (Bonk's Adventure, Castlevania: Rondo of Blood). Finally, the PS3 had some ground-breaking titles that served as games I couldn't play on the Xbox 360 (examples were Heavy Rain, God of War series, Littlebigplanet series).

RE: Top 10 topic: #16 -- Your favorite consoles!
1. SNES
2. PC
3. Gameboy
4./5. Playstation/Playstation 2

I know PC is not really a console, but I'd be say if I couldn't even have a Top 5 :-/

SNES is obvious for me since I got the fondest gaming memories when I played with this console, it was just so awesome with all these great RPGs and Jump'n'runs like Donkey Kong 1-3, although I still think that 1 was the hardest of the trilogy. Diddy and Dixie were both pretty mobile, Kiddy was like Donkey, but still not as "slow" him or to be more precise I felt like the controls in 3 were a little smoother, so maybe it only felt like this.

PC of course with its great (old) games like Dungeon Keeper, MDK or Diablo and newer games like Splinter Cell, H1Z1 and games like Dishonored, Hitman and Deus Ex ... I'm already excited for Dishonored 2, Deus Ex: Mankind Divived and the new Hitman Grin

Gameboy is was my earliest (real) gaming memory with great games like Kwirk, Mario Land 1+2, Paperboy, Choplifter or Boulder Dash.

Playstation mainly for its RPGs and Surival Horror games like Silent Hill or Final Fantasy.

The C64 gets an honorable mention since I remember it very fondly from very early age with my older brother and father, but I didn't have it for a very long time since my brother sold it not too long after I started to play a little bit every now and then.
I still remember shaking the joystick like crazy for summer and winter games, it felt more a like a hardcore training for your hands than playing a game until I figured out that it's more productive to use slow, constant movements instead of ... well, going crazy Grin

Well, a "real" console is just a computer with dedicated gaming components. The modern consoles like Xbox One/360 and PS3/PS4 are more computer-like, since you can watch streaming/disc movies & TV shows, read the news or check the weather, talk to your family/friends over Skype, surf the web, check your e-mail, listen to music, and even use social media. Plug in a keyboard and mouse, you can even use word processors and spreadsheets. lol. These days, game consoles, tablets, and computers are the same thing.
