1. Nintendo 64
-The N64 had the power house and innovation to make it better than all, but it's true shinning aspect was the games. The N64 gave us games that changed the world and the industry. "Super Mario 64" was the break thru for 3-D free roam gaming. "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" has been called one of the greatest games of all time and scores very high on factors. "Goldeneye: 007" was the defining FPS for the consoles. And can keep going with all the great titles available on the system all day.

2. Sony Playstation
-PS1 has over 1,000 titles on it system. Trying to pick a few titles to briefly talk about is way to hard because there a lot of fantastic titles.

3. Sega Saturn
-While it remained a distant 3rd in the console wars, the Saturn provided some great arcade ports, sports titles, and RPG's. The Saturn may not be everyone's top choice but it's a system worth buying.

4. 3DO Interactive Multiplayer
-You had to pay a pretty penny to buy it but you bought a very power console. Sometimes more powerful that the PS1. The 3DO gave us good reasons to play their console like "Gex", "Super Street Fighter II Turbo", "Alone In the Dark", "Crash 'n Burn", "Road Rash", and "Return Fire"

5. Atari Jaguar
-64-bit or not, the Jaguar made some good titles like "Doom", "Tempest 2000", "Iron Soldier", and "Checkered Flag"

N64 is my favorite system and was easier on the eyes than the PSOne plus it had less crap released for it. So.....N64!!!  Wink

if you compare the "crap" games out of the total amount of n64 games released compared to the total amount of games released for the playstation you'll find that the playstation has more because of the amount of support it received from developers and the ease of development compared to the n64. Therefor i would say the n64 has more Quality titles.

i liked Quest and Robotron.  Grin

The 3D0 and Jaguar did not have enough support, with Nintendo and Sega, their was barely anybody seeing anything.


Each system had it's own weaknesses and strengths. That is all I can say.

N64 has quick and fast fun games, that utilized next-gen tech. An N64 was like a pre-PS2.

The PSX was in production during the SNES. The SONY devkit basically made it, so the game can work through the SNES or without it. SONY always had a back up plan.

The Saturn, was madness, but it pulled though.

All three systems suffer from censoring, or adult content, outreach to audience.

They all have great games, the Saturn itself, is probably everybodies favorite due to the Underdog policy, but the N64 can be unforgiving at times.

South Park N64 was great......if you liked FPS multiplexers.
Robotron was great for an arcade 3d remake.
