The one with the least interesting games. I'd say Gamecube. But that's gonna change when the next Zelda will be released.

The Virtua Boy... heres a small thing I found online about it...

The Nintendo Virtual Boy

This awful device was actually released by Nintendo in the late nineties as a sort of new breed of gaming console. It was a 3D machine that ran on batteries. So it was portable, but had to rest on a stand, so it was less portable then you'd think.
http://www.videogamenews.net/images/GamepageHistory/virtualboy/Mvc-002e.jpg Interestingly enough, the batteries were contained in the controller, rather then the actual unit. Which tells me that Nintendo had originally planned to make the Virtual Boy a head mounted display, but just couldn't get it small enough to work that way. Thus they opted for the mount at the last minute. http://www.videogamenews.net/images/GamepageHistory/virtualboy/Mvc-003e.jpg The overall 3D effect did work, however the unit used only one color, a laser like red which causes headaches. Also, because the graphics were only one color, detail was very limited. The Virtual Boy came out at a $150 price point, but was soon dropped to a $20 clearance at Toys R Us. Only a dozen games were made.

Without Halo and Halo 2, Xbox would suck, but it has the best graphics but that doesnt say anything. PS 2 for rpgs and stratagies, Xbox for FPS and best graphics (PS2 has the worst out of the current three) and Gamecube for the most multiplayer and most addictive, except Halo 2. Mario Kart and Smash Bros. I could be on that shit for hours.

actually in order of graphics its xbox, ps2 and gamecube last

worst console out right now is probably the gamecube, not cause it aint a good console but in comparison to the others it loses

Now are you talking about actual graphic capability? Cause if that's the case then it's Xbox, GameCube, PS2.

Developers are able to get some great looking shit out of the PS2 but truth be told if they did the same game on the GCN it would look better. Most of the comparisons I see for multi console releases almost always rank the PS2 last in graphic quality. Only game I can think of that they said looked better on the PS2 rather than GCN was Splinter Cell 2.

Yeah I had quite a few my faves were Fighting Vipers, Nights, Virtua Cop, Sega Rally, Virtua Fighter, Daytona USA, Panzer Dragoon and a couple of others but I was gutted cos the Playstation lasted much longer and had loads of choice of games.

Gamecube aint that bad but it's concidered to be for children, Xbox and Playstation are in fact consoles for grown ups, Nintendo always kept it more for the children realy.

I don't know what console is the worst realy, I like nintendo and PS alot....I go for xbox, xbox is way to overrated

Aww this brings back memorys. I told my dad to get me this because the SNES wasnt out yet and my cousin had the Gensis. The only games I brought was Bonk and Slaughter House 16 I think it was called with the guy in the hockey mask. Early '90s shit, damn. This shit was even 16bit they said it was two 8bit things running together bit that shit was like 12bit and the games were like credit cards, lol. I know some y'all niggas was still in pampers at that time.

n64 could never be the worst system just on the strength of goldeneye and perfect dark alone!

let alone all the other great classics like mario 64,, zelda, turok.. donkey kong! actually n64 was one of the better systems of the past 10 years !

Well we all know Nintendo dropped the ball with the cartredge instead of the CD's, but Nintendo didnt or hasnt really introduced anything new. All that do is update old games I was playing in the 80's, whats next Zelda Revolution. I think the best system niggas slept on was the Dreamcast, I was kinda skeptical at first beauce that was my first sega system, because I knew of the failed 32X, Sega CD, and the Saturn.

Turbo Graphix 16 actually came out with a CD version.

That system brings back so many fuckin memories, one of my best friends has like the largest TB 16 game collection I ever seen, it has to be over 200 if not like 150. So many good games, Splatter House, Royal Rumble, Pac Man World for sheer comedy (That game never fails to crack me up along with altered beast), parasol stars, some really good shooters. IDK I guess me and him were the only ones who really enjoyed it.

Worst system.... ummm yea I think virtual boy takes the cake lol thats pretty bad.

Commodore 64 was pretty bad too.

People who say Gamecube, N64, Dreamcast, Saturn, Snes, gameboy and Ps1 are dumb. All those systems have GREAT games.... the problem is that people don't know shit about games and only play the most famous games and miss on some great unknown games.

The worst system has to be the Atari Jaguar or the 3DO

did you ever play on those? do you know the games that came out for the DC? those are examples of perfect arcade renditions.
Saturn was made for 2d, and had games like nights, shit, too much to mention. but the systems that mega mentioned, those are classics

DC most versatile adn groundbreaking
