Top Tuesday: Favorite Consoles

Rachel Mii Double JumpHey, everyone!
It’s Tuesday again. I have another Top Tuesday for you all.
Remember when I talked about updated consoles last week? Well, I thought I would share my favorite ones.
Top Tuesday Favorite Consoles Double Jump
5. Xbox 360
As you’ll be able to tell from this list, I’m a Nintendo chick. However, I do love the Xbox 360. I never had an Xbox and I don’t have the Xbox One (yet). I’m sure when I do, the Xbox One may chump the 360, but I really can’t say.
The Xbox 360 is fun to play and easy to navigate. Even though I love Nintendo, it’s refreshing to play the 360 because it’s different from the Nintendo consoles, as it should be. The controllers are easy and comfortable, reminding me of the controllers when I little, not like the Wii remote and the Wii U gamepad today.
There’s a lot to do on the 360, even if is discontinued.
4. Nintendo Wii
I was amazed when the Wii first came out. The controller was unique and I was impressed by it. I thought the “new technology” was pretty cool. To have motion sensors was all the rage. I sound like a dork, but whatever.
Most of the games for the Wii were pretty good, too. I especially loved the virtual console on the Wii shop and the many different apps they had. My personal favorite was the voting channel. I probably played that more than anything else.
3. Nintendo Gamecube
An oldie, but a goodie. Kris and I must have a thousand Gamecube games. We used to play the Gamecube all the time. There weren’t too many games that we disliked on that console. We mostly played Mario Kart: Double Dash. We always teamed up together and had a grand old time.
Plus, the discs were so small and adorable.
2. Nintendo Wii U
The newest home console from Nintendo (although not for long). Of course it made the list. It’s updated, the games are amazing, it’s more or less the same as the number one console on this list, and the Wii remotes are compatible with it. Aside from the gamepad, we didn’t have to buy new controllers. Which was nice.
I’m still unsure about the gamepad… I do like it, but I think it’s weird at the same time. It was fun to try, but I kind of hope they don’t have a gamepad-like controller for the next home console.
1. Nintendo 3DS
I play my 3DS all the time. I download games from the EShop, I ask for EShop gift cards, I have a ton of 3DS cartridges, I bring my 3DS along with me to Nintendo Zones and GameStops and the like for the StreetPass, I can change the background of the main menu… What is there not to like about the 3DS?
What are some of you all time favorite consoles?

  1. Definitely NES, even if I fell in love when I was a child to a ZX Spectrum too…

  2. Nice picks and reasoning! My top 5 are all Nintendo. It’s not that I dislike other consoles, since I have the Sony PlayStation line as well. But I grew up with the company, so this list certainly reflects that.
    5. Nintendo Wii – The Wii had lots of great games. I’m not even talking about the huge games like Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Super Mario Galaxy. Nintendo was so willing to take risks on old franchises because they had more money. I was pleased to see the returns of Wario Land: Shake It, Punch-Out!!, Kirby’s Epic Yarn and Return to Dreamland, Sin and Punishment: Star Successor, and more! Virtual Console is A+ as well!
    4 & 3. Nintendo 3DS & DS – I love these systems for their portability and amazing games. It’s hard to pick just one, so I’m picking them both. I especially enjoyed the return of point-and-click touch screen games like Ace Attorney, 999, Hotel Dusk, and Professor Layton!
    2. Super Nintendo – This will always be one of my favorite systems. It has my all-time favorite game, Super Mario World, and is filled to the brim with classics that look and play great today! I love Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong Country series, Yoshi’s Island, Final Fantasy games, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound and all of the other great Platformers and RPGs that came out for it!
    1. Nintendo 64 – This was a huge system for my peak gaming years. And it had all of my favorite classics, Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the original Super Smash Bros, Banjo-Kazooie, the list goes on! It was a legendary system, and its games don’t look all that good today, but it certainly holds up as a console filled with fun for both single-player and multiplayer experiences!

    • Thank you!
      I agree with all of your reasoning. Nintendo really is a wonderful company. I play mostly Nintendo as well mainly because that’s what I grew up with. Plus, I like their kind of games better. I’m not one for the first-person shooter or zombie-type games.
