    Xbox 360 GOAT in my opinion. Then I'd probably go Dreamcast, NES, PS2, Sega Genesis, PS4, Xbox One, PS1, Xbox, PS3. I don't rank the SNES because its actually one of the only systems I never owned and had very little time playing…. Sure it probably should rank higher, but seems bullshit to me to rank a system you've rarely used just because everyone else masturbates over it….

    Wii was the first and only console I have ever owned. It introduced to me the world of video games. I'm probably going to go back to the Wii to play Mario Kart Wii as long as its still working. Its stored somewhere though.

    The PSX and the N64 shouldn't be below the Wii. Those two consoles reigned supreme in the second half of the 90s with their wide variety of classics including Metal Gear Solid and TLOZ: Ocarina of Time (two of the best-reviewed games of all time).
    I don't deny the Wii was very innovative, but I don't think it was as groundbreaking as the aforementioned consoles.

    How dare you not put the DS and GameCube on that List, The DS is the best selling Nintendo Console, and the GameCube despite its financial crisis housed the best Library of Nintendo Games. And in what way is the SNES better than the N64, it’s got real 3D graphics.
