From this list, the Dreamcast. It's powerful enough to emulate the SMS and NES perfectly, and make a reasonable job of Mega Drive and SNES emulation. It's also small, can work as an MP3 player in a Hi-Fi stack, hackable and has a few good games, too.

I voted NES... sure the console itself may have been technically inferior to others at the time but most games nowdays are descended from their NES great-grandfathers

The Atari 2600 is the only console I ever owned. It wins.

And where´s the CD32 in that list

Well, for Console I would surely vote for the NeoGeo Home System, it simply rox to play Arcade Games on a big TV at your home

Gotta be the Megadrive.

The CD32, Jaguar and were too unsupported, the neo-geo cost the price of a small bungalow.

The SNES, Saturn and Dreamcast were indeed absolutely awesome systems, but the Megadrive edges past them all.

Atari 2800 check this http://www.freelancer-games.com/MP/A2800.htm

But yes I should have said 2600 always mix it with 7800

I just bought and Philips G7000, wow is that a butt-ugly machine, more supreme than the Atari 2600.... http://www.heydon.org/kevan/collecti...7000-large.jpg
