I'd have to say the N64, as it's my favourite console ever. Plus it's the only console I have that has an Everdrive made for it (my other consoles are disc based  >:(), but I love the N64 mainly because (to me) the two best first person shooters of all time are on it (Goldeneye and Perfect Dark), plus it has some of the best 3D platform games ever made, too - Banjo Kazooie, Super Mario 64, Banjo Tooie, and Rocket: Robot on Wheels.

Of course the N64 also has Superman 64, which is a contender for the worst game ever, but let's not dwell on that  ::)

I'd also vote for the Turbo if I could choose multiple systems.

MegaEverdrive... that handles THREE systems in one - the SMS, MegaDrive, and the 32X. It's even more if you count region free bios for the SCD.

Next for me is the ED64 - the N64 is turning into a great system for homebrew.

Next after that is the TurboEverdrive - the best cart so far for the TG16/PCE.

(I kinda put the Everdrive before the system since it made it easier to explain my rankings)

Mega Drive. Love the console and the games it has. Hardware backwards compatability is a great bonus too. Can only wish SD2SNES will have super gameboy player support someday  ::)

This was a tough one between Genesis and TG16, but I have to say I've enjoyed all the import titles on the TG16 so much. That's the one I picked.

I have Everdrives for ALL my cart based consoles. Amazing devices...

I never played on a PC Engine/TG16 (never even saw one  :(), but I've heard that they are fantastic - I'm sure I read somewhere that it has the best ratio of good to bad games of any system?

I can't decide which I prefer in the SNES/Megadrive - I think that, whichever side you chose in that console generation, you were a winner.

One thing I've always meant to look into on the SNES/Megadrive, was the way some games were different on the two machines even though they had the same name - it would be interesting to see how different developers developed the same license. Games like Alien 3, Scooby Doo, Aladin, and Shadowrun, were famous for being different depending on whether you played them on the SNES or Megadrive.

I have the SGX - just wish they'd made more games for it, but I look forward to trying to do homebrew on it.

What's an SGX (is it a non-PAL name for a PC Engine)?

Come to think of it, why was the PC Engine called the 'PC' Engine? I doubt it was anything to do with the IBM Personal Computer.

The N64 was codenamed the Ultra 64, which I always felt they should have stuck with, as (to me) it's better than either N64 or Nintendo 64. And I know the Gamecube was codenamed The Dolphin, which again I preferred.

Well, if KRIKzz updates the MED OS to use the size in the rom header, I won't need to until I get the update done.  :)

But there are other things that I'll be working on that have priority over the SGX, not just Wolf32X.

It was NEC's answer to the Genesis and SNES - they took a regular PCE and stuck in more ram, another VDP (with more vram), and a chip to handle the video from both VDPs. This gave you two layers and twice the sprites. It never caught on, so there weren't too many shipped, and only 6 games made.

The IBM PC has since become what people think of when you say "PC", but all home computers are PCs. I don't know exactly where PCE comes from, but I'd imagine that they probably originally designed the chip set for a line of home computers that became a home console instead... kind of a reverse Amiga.  :D

Nintendo had to change the name for trademark reasons. Often consoles come out under a different name because some other company holds the trademark on the name they want and cannot be persuaded to sell it. For example, Apple has no rights to the name iPad in China, or iPhone in Brazil, and was unable to force either country to sell the rights to the terms, so an iPad in China is not an Apple device, nor an iPhone in Brazil.

That was the reason the MegaDrive became the Genesis in the US - someone else in the US already owned the term MegaDrive and wouldn't sell to SEGA.

Oh, I see. If it's limited in numbers then it must be a collector's item by now! And no doubt it was never released in PAL format (we always get everything last, and if we get it at all, we pay more for it, and often get the inferior version  >:().
