    15 /25 for me

    I dont see how the 360 would be above the playstation 1 and the wii should be lower on the list

    I call BS on the top 5..
    how many of those would you REALLY want to play more than a 360? I have an NES, SNES, and Atari 2600.. they're boxed up in my mom's garage.

    if they were better across all time than the 360, we'd still be playing them.

    You can fairly easily reminisce with people about the 8/16 bit systems. It happens here all the time still. I'm too young for the Atari, but I think it's fairly spot on, although I would put the PS1 in the PS2's spot given it's huge effect on the industry.

    Having a top 25 list is kind of retarded though. Should have stopped at 10 or 15.

    I would fucking love to play some of those old games again, but I would way rather play them on XBLA than on the original systems

    the 360 and the dreamcast both had a smaller impact than the wii and yet they are higher on the list. The wii has brought a whole new audience to gaming and also has influenced control schemes/ interface of sony and microsoft.

    list = fail

    the wii is nothing. Its a playschool console that kids and grandparents can understand. Video games for dummies.

    Project natal and sony dildo controller both influenced by wii, avatars = miis, new xmb = evolution of wii channels

    the wii has pushed controllers way ahead of where they would be if nintendo never entered the game. Wii has shifted focus of the entire industry, to think of more than just prettier graphics on a next gen system and proven it can be very successful.

    some people cant appreciate fun simplicity, some of the best games ever are ones that have mass appeal, simple controls, yet can take years to master. When the user no longer needs to fight with the interface the game industry will grow even more. The wii has really influenced ease of use all around this gen.


    It also still has the best party games, something that still needs more expanding upon.

    360 should be lower in the list

    Sega Master System should be higher in the list

    Other than that I agree with it
