7) Nintendo 64. I actually never owned this system, but my girlfriend did. She had this a few years after it's prime. I had played it before but this is when I really got a chance to play the hell out of it. Every time I was over and we were going to go somewhere this little guy kept me company during the long as process of her getting ready. What great games this thing had. Probably the jewel being Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. That is still, to this day, one of the greatest video games of all time. All. Fucking. Time.
I still have it and even put it on my tree to this day.
3) Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). If you have no love for this then what the hell is wrong with you? Super Mario Bros 1-3, Duck Hunt, Legend of Zelda, Mega Man, the list goes on and on of great games for this magical little box. This was my first system and still one of the best.
2) Sega Genesis. If you read this blog regularly you know I loves me some Genesis. Reviewing Genesis games has become a whole running segment here, The Bechtloff's Book of Genesis. I actually thought long and hard about the Genesis' placement on this list. It almost had the number 1 slot but was just narrowly beaten out by...
1) Playstation 2. So why did this system beat out Genesis? Well it's the system that got me back into gaming after a long time of not owning any systems. I got this in 2005 and it was the Ultimate Spider-man game that got me to break down and buy it. And that brings me to why this beat out Genesis, PS2 had an amazing library of super hero games. Ghost Rider, Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, Marvel vs Capcom 2, Ultimate Alliance, X-men Legends 1 and 2, Justice League Heroes, the list goes on and on. This was practically the golden age of super hero games, when the technology finally got good enough to make you feel like the various heroes.
So there you have it, my 10 favorite systems? Don't like it? Well, as always, make your own damn list then.
