You could buy a multimega in Toys 'R' Us, that's mainstream enough for me

This poll is missing:
Mattel Intellivision
Texas Instruments TI 99/4a
Tandy Color Computer (CoCo)

All 3 of those systems had lots of games.

In passing I will say that this poll covers far too large a timespan.

Well this is to easy

DREAMCAST

and would have to say PC. I love most of my stuff and love to use them, but PC must be the one mostly used (for playing adventure games on )

And the Dreamcast is the love of my life.....

In two words, definitely not.

I was going to vote for the Emerson Arcadia 2001 and the Interton VC 4000, however I don't see them, can you please add them?

EDIT: actually the Interton might be classed as a '70s machine, is there a reason 70s machines are excluded, seems a bit strange?

What about the Falcon, and that lean, mean RISC machine, the Archimedes?

I read somewhere they cranked the latter up to 18 mips in like 1989...

^ Edit: of course, you can't believe everything you read, but still...

"Panasonic 3DO" should be just "3DO", they were made by various companies, not just Panasonic.

Unless you are going to also include each and every IBM PC clone separately. :-)

If I add these obscure (come on ) machines you've asked for the spread of votes will be way too thin. Don't forget we have limited members here and if everyone votes for a different obscure console nothing will ever win :/

Plus the fact that if I add 70's then the timespan is just WAAAY to big for a vote. I hope you understand

Crikey, I think that was a freudian slip. I didn't even noticed I'd typed it!

Atari ST(E) has to be there
plus the SMegadrive. I didnt own one for long but games-wise it kicked butt.. it had a great library and availability compared to SNES.

So hard to choose...
From the available list, in order of use:

Sony Playstation
BBC model B
( Damn, no room for Amstrad 464 )


You can't win on a poll like this:
RiscOS computers?
( Both my A3000 & RiscPC got a lot of gaming use - still do )
