Most Acclaimed Video Game Systems of All Time

Post by letmeintomyzone »

Hello, there, AcclaimedMusic. I am still desiring to finish my Most Acclaimed Comics of All Time project and get started on my 100 Most Acclaimed Episodes of All Time project, but, here's a smaller, less daunting project to hold you over, here is a list, compiled from various sources, to collect what critics consider the best videogame systems of all time. I used some lists, specifically, from ones counting down specific "Best Videogame Handhelds of All Time" lists, for some of these, so keep that in mind.

The ones I've used the most in my life are probably SNES, PS2, PS4 and Switch. And if I had to live with only four systems for the rest of my life those'd probably be it.

I’ve been very fortunate to have owned a few of these at one point or another but I have to say the PS2 in particular gives me the fondest memories
