From Pong to Pacman, from 8 to 32 bits, from Mario to Sonic- Which one is the real king?

Tough. I don't know if I like the SNES or the Playstation more, so I picked Playstation since it'll probably tip the scales a little bit more.

I had a similar problem though it was between the NES and the Playstation. I chose NES though.

Yay for more NES, or in my case Famicom :D

Not sure I can consider PS1 vintage - but I guess everything becomes vintage at some point, just a sign of the times.

No love for Atari? The Atari 2600 has every single game imaginable on it, plus homebrew is easy especially with batari Basic. Odyssey 2 would be the runner up.

EDIT: Oh, and Amiga was Commodore not Atari, right?

I have a bunch of memories playing the Nintendo 64 and PS1 with my older sisters. Voted for the N64 though since we always played Smash Bros.

My favorite console though is the PlayStation 2.

to me, the vest vintage in gaming, as in the best era, would be the 8bit era. this was the most memorable and paved the way for everything i love about gaming today.

16bit would have to be a close second, everything after that hasn't changed all that much for me. faster hardware, better graphics, new experiences, but similar experiences from ps1 onward.

This is an incredibly hard choice. I usually wouldn't pick just one console, I like pretty much all of them. But if I really had to choose, I'd vote for NES. SNES was an incredibly close runner up, bringing us such masterpieces as Earthbound, Final Fantasy 3, Yoshi's Island...I could really go on and on, there's a ton of amazing games for it. But in the end, the console I started with and grew up with, the one I remember most playing with both of my brothers, the one that has some of the best video game music ever (something about those 8 bit tunes). The NES just can't be topped for me. It was my first, and me and my brothers enjoyed the crap out of that thing.

Gh! I've edited the poll before posting it a few times, as I also wanted to include things like Colecovision and Intellivision, so I accidentally pasted Amiga close to Atari instead of pasting it in the Commodore line >___<

As far as I'm concerned, even though it makes me feel old as hell I'd include the 32bit gen consoles in a vintage list right now. I actually almost included Ps2/Dreamcast/GC as well @___@

And yeah, growing up in the mid 80s, 16 bit graphics were by far the best looking to me -and probably still are. Now everything's about how perfect the game looks and not how well it plays.
As a second close-up runner I would have picked the MasterSystem though, as here in Italy it was at least as popular as the NES when I was a little kid and it also was my very first console (and it is still functioning of course, it's the one in the pic)

That's a tough question because my favorite 3 consoles are the NES,SNES, and N64. Choosing one is impossible. They're all equally good in the game department. N64 has FPS's and 3D platformers but I can't live without the side scrollers which both NES/SNES have some of the greatest of all time. The SNES has amazing RPG's as well, but the NES has a lot of good memories. I can't choose end of story.
