Having only experienced the 5th Generation and onwards, I cast my vote for the 7th Generation. The detail projected by some of these consoles are simply amazing. Not to mention the fact that some of the best-selling games of all time are for the newest consoles/new generation.

The 3rd definitely was a good time for the industry, but the depth of the 7th generations are simply amazing.

Any that's not the current one.

More especifically, the last gen (128 bits) is one I'm very fond of. The fact that the PS2 dominated it completely isn't at all bad (in fact, it was a safe bet to all gamers, genre notwithstanding). On the other hand we saw the fall of SEGA and the rise of - even with a not so good start - Micro$oft on the consoles scenario. The Gamecube was the repetition of Nintendo's strategy on unsuccessfully trying to predict the gamers wishes (the gamers don't want internet, the gamers do want connectivity with their handhelds). Althought the company seems to have scored with the Wii on this generation, their direction still bugs me a lot - along with a queue of hardcore gamers.

16 bits generation was also sweet. Many of my favortie games date from this era, and the war between SEGA and Nintendo was priceless (Genesis and Super Famicom/Nintendo), which provided the audience with brilliant after shining game.

32 bits was smooth sailing to Sony. Both classics appeared on the PS then (Metal Gear Solid) as well as crappy products (someone cared about Robo Pit?)

64 bit is a very particular gen. Of course, the N64 had the way clear for it to shine. Although it did cost Nintendo some money-maker franchises (Final Fantasy) due to the inexcusable use of cartridges, some of the most popular and good games of all time showed up then (Zelda).

I'm leaving the other generations out of this. Their importance is well-known to me, but, overrally, those aforementioned ruled above them.

5th generation. Some of my favorite games of all time (OoT, Goldeneye to name a few) are for the N64. The games for current generation consoles are pretty boring, they're mostly knock offs of each other or are for PC.

I also think the 5th is the best, I had Playstation and I played the hell out of that thing. I'm not sure how I would rank the rest of the generations, each has good and bad points. The 4th was my first exposure to console gaming with Genesis and I really loved that thing. The 6th I had Xbox and enjoyed it alright, and it was definitely a huge step up in terms of graphics from the 5th generation. The current gen is sort of hard to say. I have the Wii and really like it and have some great games, but there is so much unused potential from the developers I think. And a lot of games for Xbox 360 and PS3 seem to sacrifice gameplay for graphics.

I say 7th. My reaction on playing a PS3 game for the first time on an HD TV, after years with the PS2 on a dinky screen was something comparable to this:

The new consoles seem to have almost unlimited potential. Consider the graphical quality of the first-wave games, like Assassin's Creed (great...but admittedly rushed) against the best games PS2 had to offer towards the end. Make a comparison of TFU on the PS2 against PS3 - you'll see my point.

I don't consider graphics very important, but that is not how most people see things.

I'd go with the 5th gen because it brought us 3D worlds and their gameplay. Comparing 5th gen to its predecessors shows you a huge contrast. Also among 5th's achievements was the first decent racing and shooter games on consoles. You saw gameplay enhancers such as passable physics simulation, analog control, force feedback, really good music in HQ MIDI and CD audio, FMV, etc.

6th and 7th gen are just revisions and enhancements to the 5th generation formula. Not much has changed aside from the online multiplayer aspect. Not that that's not significant, but it's not so much for me because I don't play any online multiplayer stuff.

It's hard to choose between the 5th and 3rd though because the NES took the world by storm. It revived gaming in a big way. I also think the Wii is significant and almost separate from 360/PS3 because it has found a new type of gamer, IMO.

The Wii should have a generation of it's own, since one of Nintendo's goals for the Wii was to not directly compete with Microsoft and Sony, which usually ends up in more repetitive games and consoles. And that's why I love my Wii: it's outside of the box.


But really, the 3rd generation was the greatest. The NES singlehandedly saved the video game industry after the crash of '83, which made video gaming as we know it today possible.

I started out with the original Nintendo (nvmind the fact that I started three or four years ago and that thing's twenty years old ), and once I got sick of Tetris and Mario Brothers I graduated to another old console: The Super Nintendo! Super Mario brothers got reeeeeaaally old reeeeeaaaally fast. Toy Story didn't hold me over for long either. (Boy, I played some stellar games, didn't I? ) Then I broke down, got a PS2 with Battlefront 2 and Revenge of the Sith. A few months ago, I got a PS3 so I could play TFU (then they moved the release date from April to September ), and I've decided that as much as I love my PS2, I have to vote for the current gen!


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.

PC can't really be shoehorned into a particular generation because of how often hardware is updated, allowing for newer and faster games to be made constantly.

And how do you answer critics of the 7th generation who say that graphics are taking precedence over gameplay and story in modern console games? Sure they're pretty, but do they have any substance to them? And is that substance a product of current innovation or something that has been pioneered by a previous console? And if not, are the graphics really enough to make this generation the best one?

Nope, this generation is far from the best. Truly, most of the games we have right now are really all based off of games released in the 5th generation, where 3D graphics were first being implemented. Almost every game in this generation has been touted fro it's graphics, with little focus on innovating the actual core gameplay. Take Crysis for example; the game was specifically developed for it's graphics, and although they are amazing, the actual gameplay is just another repetitive and tedious first person shooter. The same can be said for Gears of War; most of the media coverage of it has all been focused on the Unreal Engine 3, while truly, the gameplay looks almost identical to it's predecessor: a run and gun shooter. Yet another reason why I love my Wii: It's the gameplay, stupid, and that's all I really care about. Of course, the Wii has shown off some pretty graphics (Seriously, play Super Mario Galaxy. Ooh, shiny!), but really, the Wii was developed to innovate gameplay in video games, and I believe they've done so, which is something that I unfortunately can't say about Sony and Microsoft.

Toss up between 3rd and 4th (considering consoles are the question and not PC's ).

While they may not have the best 'graphics' of other generations.. I by far had the most fun playing the games introduced in the era. I went through 2 NES systems because of playing it so much... but I have a fondness for the Sega Genesis too.

I voted for 3rd though since the NES got a more thorough workout in my house back in the day. All-day CONTRA / Metroid benders and Zelda FTW.

There were so many games I loved in the 6th generation that I have to give it my vote, although nostalgia was seriously tempting me into voting for one of the previous three.

Games like Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes (remake of 1), 2 & 3, all the first-party Nintendo titles (Mario Kart, Zelda, Metroid Prime, etc), Resident Evil 4, Shadow of the Colossus, Beyond Good and Evil, and many more serious classics.

There've been some good games this generation, but it's far from having the sheer volume of high-quality titles that we saw last time. With that said, there's plenty of time to go.

No, I just said that the graphics are awesome but a lot of the newer games do have good plots but not as good as the older console

Maybe we should judge based on which generation had the best Star Wars games?

In that case, hmmm, I'd have to go with either 4th or 5th. I like the Super Star Wars games on SNES a good bit. However, Shadows of the Empire on N64 was excellent, along with Pod Racer and Rogue Squadron.

On the other other hand, I think my fav Star Wars games are all on PC anyway. Shadows looks, sounds, and plays best on PC. Dark Forces/JK and the X-Wing games are only (or best) on PC. SW Rebellion is obviously PC only.... So, hmmmm...... Ya I'm afraid my best gaming memories are primarily on the PC.

I think the fact that 7th is getting the most votes tells us that the voters are generally new to gaming. I'm not sure how anyone could go gaga over the current console game libraries and very unsure of how this generation could be someone's favorite!

Agreed, Mega Man 2, Super Mario Bros. and Mike Tyson's Punch Out! were the most replayable game sin the history of mankind, besides WBC2.

This is the first genration that we actually have a choice between consoles w/ noticeable differences.
Wii: Obvious reasons...it's a new way to game
360: Best online service available w/ amazing graphics
PS3: Great graphics and free online (not nearly as good as Live though)

The choices are better than before...and the differences are more than just games now...that's why this is the best generation



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out

Well, I kinda think that the games are all that matters. What is so much better about today's console games? The only new thing going compared to older generations is extensive multiplayer. Is that all that matters now?

Is the newest generation most popular simply because the market keeps growing and is like 10x larger than it was 10 years ago? Think about it: there are fewer people to vote for the older consoles.

I think consoles were WAY more exciting back when they were an arcade counterpart. You had the arcades that were budgetless technology showcases. Then they'd try to port the games to the consoles and you'd see how it went. New and coming consoles were compared to the $10k arcade hardware. Arcades were also way more fun than today's chatroom gaming IMO. They were somewhere to go hang out and chat with fellow crazy gamer folk.

I have only played the 5th onward. I remember when my brother gave me his PlayStation one year and that just started everything. It was pretty awesome.

I did vote for the 7th generation though because...the graphics have just gotten better and better. Awesome consoles.

Helpful! 
If graphics were the only qualification, obviously it'd be the 7th gen, since it's the most recent. If the selection of games was the only qualification, I'd say the 6th gen, since it contains the majority of my favorite games ever (PS2 I love you!). But in terms of which one was best for the industry and pushing things forward, I'd say the 5th gen. It was the first one with real 3D graphics and kind of cemented in the well-known genres that we see today on consoles.

Interesting, no one likes 1st or 2nd gen; can't imagine why....
