    I enjoyed the Chriza Sega Genesis thread, so I thought I'd say what the hell and throw this up. Feel free to write in an answer, I'm obviously not picking wildly successful consoles here.

    EDIT: Also, I didn't put up the Colecovision, Magnavox Odyssey and all of those late 70's/early 80's consoles because hardly anyone remembers them, and most of the same games were on the Atari 2600 anyway.

    Dreamcast without a doubt. They are still making games for it too.

    Just did. For me, it was a tough choice between the Saturn and the Turbografx 16.

    I missed the Sega thread yesterday because I was working. The Sega CD probably in my gut, however that also includes some nostaglia of getting one for xmas in '93 and playing it well beyond it's life. There will always bee a place in my heart for Night Trap, Ground Zero Texas, Snatcher, The Adventures of Willie Beamish and many others. I currently use GENS ( the PC emulator ) and have probably every US release on ROM.

    But, I also, in the closet, have a JVC X'eye that has been plugged in a recently as this year for some Earthworm Jim and maybe a little Prize Fighter. The 32x is sitting next to it, but not used. Now if I only had a copy of SpiderMan - Web of Fire ....

    Turbo graphic 16 and the PC engine were awesome too so many fun games that you can now play for free with an emulator.
