30 Day Video Game Challenge – Day 11 – Gaming system of choice

I’m not really sure what this challenge is asking here. All time favorite console? Favorite current console? I’ll just choice all time favorite.

All time favorite console (SNES)

My gaming began in the “fourth” generation or the “16-bit” generation. The SNES is my all-time favorite gaming console. Part of the reason for this is that it was my first gaming console, so I’m probably a little nostalgic. Anyway, the SNES was the second console from Nintendo. It would become the best-selling console of the era, with almost 50 million sold. The SNES controller introduced many elements into the gaming industry.

Of course, the MOST important aspect of a gaming console is the games. The SNES had a large library of games that covered a large array of genres. Many of those games are among the most highly regarded games of all time.

With games like, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country (1-3), Super Mario Kart, Street Fighter 2, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Killer Instinct, Star Fox, Mortal Kombat 2, Mega Man X and NBA Jam you see how I spent countless hours playing the SNES. While, gaming consoles have far superior tech. now and many games have surpassed the quality of SNES games the console will always be a trailblazer in gaming.

  1. I owned a Megadrive, which was a great console too, but had the chance to play the SNES every week at my uncles. Have to agree that the games are brill and the controller design has stood the test of time. Sunk many hours into Mario Kart and Street Fighter 2.

    1. I had so much fun playing with the SNES. I don’t know how many hundreds of hours I spent playing.

  2. Definitely the Gamecube for me. That’s still far and aways my favorite console of all time! My favorite non Nintendo console would be the PS4, I love the sleek interface

  3. My favorite Nintendo console is N64 and my favorite new age console is PS4.I find your 30 Day Video Game Challenge posts interesting. Where did this challenge originate from and if I ever want to do it for my blog, can I?

    1. If you want to do it you can. It’s hard to say where the challenge originated from considering the size of the internet. However, all you need is the list and willingness to do it. Check out my blog introducing the challenge to get the list.

      1. Thanks so much. I’m already thinking of how to answer the challenge questions!

  4. I’m still trying to figure out my favorite gaming console. I was pretty young when the SNES was out and about, so I think I need to play some more N64 games before really making my mind up.

    1. N64 had a lot of classic and industry changing games. You should give more of those games a try.

      1. I’m working on it! So many games and so little time 😬
