This is clearly propaganda by an anti-TurboGrafx-16 lobby

This is the greatest of all time.  Don't even try to deny it, nerds.

1.  NES
2.  Super NES
3.  All others (mostly crap)

And yes, even today I play NES more than any other console.  It still has the best games.

My Atari VCS still works and is hooked up to my HD TV.  I can play ET on a 65" screen.  I have about 40 cartridges for it and pick up a few rare ones here and there when I find them.

The Amiga CD32 ought to be there. Although it was released as Commodore was going bankrupt, it still managed to be the best selling console during Christmas 1993, in relevant markets, until stock ran out, or rather, the stock they had, was locked up in the Philippines.

So what, it was still good, had an on game collection, and was compatible with the Amiga 1200 (it was an Amiga 1200 with a CD-drive and FMV module).

By adding a keyboard and mouse, you'd have a full computer, with its massive software library.


Who ever wrote this piece probably never heard of it, meaning the rest of their opinions are crap.
