      Which older console was your favourite?

      I myself used to love playing on the Sega Master System and The Super Nintendo :) used to have hours of fun on them playing Mario and Sonic :) I always remember on the Sega Master System you had a built in game called Alex The Kidd :) does anyone else remember this game?

      The PS1 if that's considered retro now. If not, the megadrive.

      My favorite Retro console is the ZX Spectrum, Well sort of a console. It did play games after all! If not, Then i would go for the PS1, I used to have one. They are fun to use, and Fun to smash up with a sledge hammer. :p

      NES, no doubt about it. I have multiple old systems but with the likes of Super Mario Bros 3. I just can't say anything else.

      ^ Neomysterion likes this comment a lot.

      I LOVE the old-school NES! I like to collect games for that console, including elusive ones. I like to go on a lot of NES fansites and shrines myself so I can be as dedicated to the old-school NES as much as possible!

      Complete with its rubber keys and nice long game loading times :D

      Sega Mega Drive was my favourite.

      It has to be SEGA. I miss that console. I think it was also one of my first gaming consoles.

      I can't decide between the Nintendo 64 or the Nintendo Gamecube. Both very great systems.

      Eh, I've got so many favorites, as I am a collector. I'd say for now, I admire the Super NES. Sure, I have/had others that I deemed favorite at the time, but at the time being, I'm rootin' for the SNES.

      Gotta be the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. <3 I've still got mine, plus the game I used to play, but I've not tried to reconnect it yet. o.o

      Probably SNES for me, it has some of the best RPG's ever made, and started a few franchises, or boosted their popularity

      The Nintendo 64 for me. SNES was a great console but I skipped it so my fond growing memories as a gamer are from the Nintendo 64, I liked almost every game I played.

      I don't know if it is considered retro yet, but the Nintendo 64. I loved it! It had great graphics for the time, loads of great games came out like Super Mario 64, and best of all The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which introduced me into the world of Zelda...Which I am still playing today! :)

      I think I will always enjoy the N64 as the best.
