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.
