What is your least favourite video game console?


It can be for any reason really - its shape, colour scheme, cartridge versus disc, controllers, memory system, "bits" and so on. For example, I choose the Atari 5200. It's an oversized mess that is around the size of 2 NES consoles. Plus, the pads refuse to work so you can't play any of the games. You can however use Sega Genesis (or Mega Drive if you're in the EU) controllers on it too. Which is good because it's a console that's generally broken. There was even a pad that came iwth it which was nearly as big as the console itself. So what's your least favourite console, and why?

    I didn't know it crashed and burnt. I heard it replaced the 32X-CD accessories and did really well. However, I barely saw them and the Dreamcast came along fast here in the UK.

    Okay, okay... my least fav... I never found anything too appealing about the original XBox. Not too many titles drew me in and it's controller felt unnecessarily bulky, as did the system itself. Actually, it looked pretty fugly to be honest.

    Nice to know you have a favourite, but I'm asking for the "least" favourite. Which one do you like the least?

    Too right. I also noticed that most of the games I played loaded slower than a PS1, due to it being a disc-based console. The controllers too were very controversial, and smaller ones had to be released long after ^^
