Your favourite 'non-Amiga' machine of the 80's and 90's : Round 2!

Right!

Here are the top ten through from Round 1. Only one can be the winner

If you owned one or more of these systems :
Pick your favourite gaming machine out of the list above.

If you didn't own any of these systems :
Either pick which one you would LIKE to own/have owned, or don't vote

The winning system must win by TWO CLEAR VOTES, otherwise it will go to a third round.

Happy voting!

I probably should have voted C64, but I went for SNES.
I just love everything about Nintendo's kickass console.

Sorry ... but nothing beats a Dreamcast in playing games ... not even the good old C64 or the beloved AMIGA

PSX and PS2 were more successful and had much more game titles therefore but they can't beat DC ... never ever ...

too bad ... no DC2 will ever see the daylight ...

will go now to play Soul Calibur on DC!
... and/or Shenmue ...

Well... as Skylight says... nothing beats my Dreamcast.... except er... the Wii... love this little machine!! But back on topic... I chose the Spectrum, reasons... pure nostalgia for me... owned a 16k, then a 48 and then a 128 +2 - loved that machine and still have a boatload of stuff I still play about with via emulator.

Looks like it's a head to head between the C64 and PSX.

But you never know, the games poll changed loads over the course of it's life!

Well I don't think I'll have to tell what I voted as long as my name is Dreamcast Dizzy, but I could have voted on pc too, as I play many adventure games on my pc...
But no machine is more beautiful than the DC



and a picture of a naked dreamcast here (not worksafe )

Should've divided it into the two different decades. I feel dirty for choosing the Playstation over the C64 - their age differences is too big to be comparable. The C64 got me into gaming. The Playstation introduced me to consoles. I wasn't a console fan until I bought one of these, out of curiosity.

That's a fair comment about the decades

Had to vote Dreamcast... I would have voted Sega Saturn (or atari Jaguar perhaps) but those options weren't there.
