    For me, it IS the best.

    Simply because Secret of Mana spawned on it. For me, that's the greatest game of all time.

    And then the incredibly classic Link to the Past. I believe it to be better than OOT and Twilight Princess.

    Ah, and who can forget Super Mario World.
    I think many people my age either learned their first curse words from either this game (Or Contra... -shudder-). But I've never been a curser.


    And then the control design is simply the best Nintendo has ever churned out.

    I think it's one of the best, but not the best.
    My list for greatest consoles:
    • SNES (It's a Nintendo product that revolutionized the industry with fairly good games)
    • N64 (Superb games)
    • Playstation 2 (Superb game and design)
    • Xbox 1 [Crappy system but it has the funniest warnings ever (do not drop on foot)]

    It's definitely my favourite, mainly because I grew up with, little bit of nostalgia

    I really liked the SNES. I don't know about favorite but a lot of my favorite games were on that console. It's hard for me to look past the Saturn since it has the only older game I still actively play today (Saturn Bomberman), but good games were few and far between on that system (even though those few and far between typically rocked). I never really liked the Playstation. I loved Jet Moto and Twisted Metal 2 but then they made some terrible sequels to those titles so I never even considered getting a Playstation. The NES was fun at the time but most of the games on that system don't replay very well today. In fact, I'd say that almost all of the NES games still worth playing are already on the Virtual Console.

    If I had to pick one, it would be the Saturn so I guess it gets my vote as best console. I hate to do that based on the strength of a couple of games, but I'd rather be without the SNES' entire library than those few Saturn games.

    Thats a bit of a stupid comment
    You wouldnt bring out the games if there wasnt a console
    The games were specifically designed for the console not the other way around

    While personally I'd have been more inclined to say the PS2 was better, the SNES was definitely in the top 2. There's no denying it had one of the most enviable line-ups of video games ever.

    I dont think Portal was made with the 360/PS3 in mind
    Same with Metail gear solid
    Same with Donkey kong
    Same with Mirco machiens
    Same with Pong

    So there kinda not made around the console

    Same can be said for most Wii ports
    I dont think <Insert Disney game> and <Insert movie licence> where made with the Wii in mind
