The Definitive List of the Top 88 Games-capable US Home Videogame and Computer Systems of All Time

In the spirit of the umpteenth tedious and unnecessary "Top whatever" list, which I first railed against here, I present The Definitive List of the Top 88 Games-capable US Home Videogame and Computer Systems of All Time, which is based off of my classic System Ranking Matrix, which factors in Visuals; Audio; Controller Options and Quality; Add-Ons, Peripherals, Expandability, Features; Software Lineup Diversity and Complexity; Software Density and Raw Number of Mainstream Titles; Ease to Set Up Optimal Game Playing System; and Initial (first run) Popularity to come up with an overall score. This is the combination of the two previous, separated lists. It's about as scientific as you can make a decidedly opinion-based concept be. Of course this list focuses only on those games-capable videogame and computer systems that actually had a wide release in the US (really, North America), and omits - for now - certain platforms like the iPhone. Enjoy v.09 of the list (and no, I don't feel like showing my work at this time):

The Definitive List of the Top 36 Games-capable US Computer Systems of All Time

In the spirit of the umpteenth tedious and unnecessary "Top whatever" list, which I railed against here, I present The Definitive List of the Top 36 Games-capable US Computer Systems of All Time, which is based off of my classic System Ranking Matrix, which factors in Visuals; Audio; Controller Options and Quality; Add-Ons, Peripherals, Expandability, Features; Software Lineup Diversity and Complexity; Software Density and Raw Number of Mainstream Titles; Ease to Set Up Optimal Game Playing System; and Initial (first run) Popularity to come up with an overall score. It's about as scientific as you can make a decidedly opinion-based concept be. Of course this list focuses only on those games-capable computer systems that actually had a wide release in the US (really, North America), and omits videogame systems (consoles and handhelds) for the sake of clarity, as well as, for now, platforms like the iPhone. Enjoy v.09 of the list (and no, I don't feel like showing my work at this time):

The Definitive List of the Top 54 US Videogame Systems of All Time

In the spirit of the umpteenth tedious and unnecessary "Top whatever" list, this time from IGN with their Top 25 Game Consoles of All Time, I present The Definitive List of the Top 54 US Videogame Systems of All Time, which is based off of my classic System Ranking Matrix, which factors in Visuals; Audio; Controller Options and Quality; Add-Ons, Peripherals, Expandability, Features; Software Lineup Diversity and Complexity; Software Density and Raw Number of Mainstream Titles; Ease to Set Up Optimal Game Playing System; and Initial (first run) Popularity to come up with an overall score. It's about as scientific as you can make a decidedly opinion-based concept be. Of course this list focuses only on those videogame systems that actually had a wide release in the US (really, North America), and omits computer systems for the sake of clarity, as well as, for now, platforms like the iPhone. Enjoy v.09 of the list (and no, I don't feel like showing my work at this time), and let's pray we get at least a few days break before the next "Best of whatever" comes out!:
