N64.

As much as I love the PlayStation systems, N64 has a special place in my heart, Some of my best all time memories are playing games like Goldeneye and Mario Kart 64 with mates.

I'm a huge Sega fan, and up until the last few years I would have easily said the Megadrive or Dreamcast. However, I think my vote has to go to PS3. I have had it longer and played it more than anything I have owned in the last 35 years.

It has the added ability of me playing my favourite PS1 and PS2 titles as well, plus all the goodies that are on PSN. By far my favourite gaming a system ever... followed by the Sega machines.

The real answer is PS3 but avoiding that boring answer mine was the Amiga 500+ for sure.

N64

It excelled in single and multiplayer games, and it was released at a special time when everything Nintendo and Rare created became an instant classic. Also I think the 64 controller is still perhaps the best designed controller ever.

I felt like the Gamecube was severely underrated. It was a quality system, developers just never made the games for it.

Amiga 500 I guess.
Gods
Secret of Monkey Island & Monkey Island 2
Apidya
Walker
Syndicate
The Chaos Engine
Flashback
Sensible World of Soccer
Ultimate Soccer Manager
Moonstone
Speedball 2
Liberation:Captive II
Frontier: Elite 2
Lemmings
Pirates
Pinball Dreams
Eye of the Beholder
Populous II
Alien Breed
Super Cars 2
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Superfrog

That system had a lot of original IP's. I still think a Chaos Engine HD remake with splitscreen and online multiplayer would sell really well.

Amiga 500 and then the 1200.

Some of the happiest days of my life.

Great list of games, some of my favourites in that list I love that you mentioned Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt, nobody ever seems to mention it.

Mine is the SNES too.

Difficult one. I think the Gamecube followed by the N64.

I still fire up my Amiga A1200 from time to time, and luckily I have most of my games for it stored on its massive 540mb hard drive as a lot of my 3.5 inch floppys have got corrupted over time.

My old Amiga 500, then my trusty PS2. So many great games on both machines. Something the current gen could really learn from. Fancy graphics are not the be all and end all.

My head is telling me my 360 as this gen has been the longest and honestly I don't think I have played so many great titles bearing in mind I have been playing games for about 30+ years.

But in my heart it's different. Only the other day, I took out my Dreamcast and gazed at it's beauty. This machine (Esp with Phantasy Star Online) not only introduced me to the wonders of new gaming genres it gave me a glimpse of online gaming.

Everything about that machine was so far ahead of it's time it was destined to fail ... but for me it still holds a very special place in my gaming heart.
