As you can see from the list below, there was a real struggle for the title, with beloved consoles like the PS2, SNES, Dreamcast, and Wii all vying for the crown. However, there can only be one winner, and in this case, it was the mighty PC.


You can check out the full nominees below:

  • Playstation 2
  • Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)

As you can see from that polling order, Sony shouldn’t be too disappointed, as 3 of their consoles are all in the top 5, while Nintendo’s SNES represented a huge win thanks to the retro vote. However, there is undoubtedly a strong case to be made for the PC, which has always been at the forefront of gaming.
