Mine is, cliché given this is a Nintendo site, the Super Nintendo. For me, the SNES represents the pinnacle of 2D-gaming. A lot of the games still hold up today. Super Mario World still is my favourite game if all time! F- Zero, Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart, Mario All Stars, Contra 3, Axelay, Starfox… Too many to name! Sure, these old and weary eyes are looking through rise-tinted-glasses, but that’s part of retro-gaming, which is subjective by definition. And since I’m from Europe, I got the nice Famicom-style model. And borders. And a 17.5 decrease in speed. Ah, the good ol’ days.
I quite like the Sega Saturn too. Some excellent home conversions, the Panzer Dragoon-games, Guardian Heries, 2D-fighters… Bliss. I was quite fond of the Dreamcast too, but a lot of those games got rereleases or relasters on other platforms.
And let’s not forget the old trusty Gamecube, with some excellent and quirky games: Super Mario Sunshine, Chibi-Robo, Killer7, Doshin The Giant, the Rogue Squadron- games, Eternal Darkness (still a Halliween favourite), the Super Monkey Balls, WaveRace, 1080,…
So, what’s yours?
