Here is the link to the video if anyone is interested:

Does anyone agree with it?

NOTE: Yes, I know it is 5-years old now.

10 Sega Dreamcast
9 Atari 2600
8 Gameboy
7 Nintendo 64
6 Sega Genesis
5 Gameboy Advance
4 Playstation 2
3 NES
2 SNES
1 Playstation

That's how the video lists them. Kind of hard to deny the top 5. I'm just glad the Dreamcast made it in there.

Weird. I'd rearrange that top 4 and put one of the PS360 consoles in there as well, but not bad. I'd personally drop the Dreamcast off too.

The video is from 2007, PS3/360 and the Wii were a year old (well 2 years old for the 360).

I would have put the SNES number one.

Nah, SNES is overrated and the PS1 had just as many JRPG's, PLUS the majority of SNES RPG's made it to the PS1, well at least most of the Square ones did.

But the SNES JRPG's looked good, unlike many of the PS1 games like FFVII, which looked like butt.

Edit: My new rage starter, saying FFVII looks like butt. I'm putting that as a tagline for all my posts now.

PS1 at number 1? No.

MrFoxhound says:
I'm not going to hold early polygonal graphics against the PS1. Without those games as a stepping stone, we wouldn't have the awesome looking games that we have now. We'd still be playing sprite-based games.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Completely agree. The sprites in SNES RPGs look beautiful, even today. 5th console generation polygons looked like a$$ out of the gate, and get worse each year.

I'd give Super Mario 64 more credit for that than anything that came from the Playstation.

IMO:

1. SNES
2. N64
3. Gamecube/Wii
4. SEGA Genesis
5. PS3

We don't give Nintendo credit for things around here.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 28, 2012 9:56:25 AM PST
I honestly wonder why.

JWK says:
I've considered that. We had two console generations where developers were trying things out. To be honest, I don't think PS2/XBox/Gamecube/Dreamcast/Wii polygons look very good either. But obviously they were necessary. The HD twins (and PC, obviously) have the only good looking 3D games. (Wind Waker is one of the exceptions, mostly due to the cell shading). This is the first generation where the polygons didn't make me want to murder my eyes and send me running back to my SNES. My opinion.

You're going to give 1 game credit for the 3D revolution over an entire system that pushed 3D graphics as its sole mission? They wouldn't even let Capcom do a 2D Mega Man game because they wanted 3D games only.

If anything SM64 worked in concert with the PS1 to lay the foundation for 3D gaming as we know it today. I think that SM64's major contribution was analog control.

Yes. It did it first and it did it better than EVERYTHING the PS1 ever offered.

I don't agree with that at all.

Told ya.

Speaking of 2D Mega Man games on the Playstation, Mega Man X4 - 6 are some of the best looking sprite-based games in history. Just imagine if the Playstation was filled with 2D games that looked like MMx4 and Symphony of the Night. I wish console developers would have stuck with 2D games for one final generation.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 28, 2012 10:05:24 AM PST
Really? N64? There are some great games on it for sure, especially the 1st-party Nintendo games and the stuff made by rare, but there just isn't a very wide library and a good portion of the 3rd party stuff is just plain awful.

He's not arguing which one is better; he's arguing that SM64 did 3D better than anything the PS1 had.

I can agree with some of this but every console has some great looking stuff still. I personally like the way Jet Grind Radio looks a bit more than Wind Waker, but I think the stylized graphics definitely hold up a heckuva lot better than say the "realistic" look of GoldenEye. I still enjoy the look of FF8 too, despite it looking a bit blurry.

I was responding to Silver Star's top five list though. I think we're on two different pages here.
