The question might seems a joke but which console would you buy if you had to choose between those 3 great consoles. I am looking to buy a retro console but I don't which one to pick because they are so great. thx for your replies.

Not an easy choice as the Nes, Snes, N64 are great consoles, but I would have to go with the N64 because I really like 3D platformers.

SNES easily for me. Great mix of platformers, JRPG's and Action RPG's And the games still look great today.

To blessed to be stressed.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

NES by a land slide! :*. It's surrounding 80's culture is another big reason why i absolutely adore it and it gave birth to so many amazing franchises. it was host to so much innovation, imagination and so many creative games that basically molded the industry and paved the way for fantastic sequels to come.

SNES was also the total awesome sauce but sorry i've got no love for the N64 outside of experiencing Mario 64 for the first time, and playing Golden eye 007 in multiplayer. it felt like the beginning of the end for the Big N. Luckily, the magic returned with ze' Wii. ;)

I never really used the NES or the SNES, but I loved our N64 a lot.

Hours and hours of pokemon and harvest moon and mario party.

The N64. Easy answer for me. Don't get me wrong, I love the other consoles, I just prefer the N64. I have the best memories with that system.

N64. Majora's Mask, Ocarina of Time, Paper Mario, Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Pokémon Snap, Pokémon Stadium, StarFox 64, 007, Turok, etc. Just awesome.

I miss the Chrono series, and I wish Final Fantasy was back with Nintendo...
Yeah, guitars are cool.

Whatever the question, SNES is the answer. Super Mario World/Allstars, Super Metroid, Super Castlevania, Super Bomberman....there's even some great games that don't start with "Super" like Turtles In Time. I vote NES second place, N64 was fun while it lasted but the analog stick was disappointing. Mine always seemed to get loose really quickly.

I would never take the NES. (Could have been much better if more stuff used the same mapper chip as Castlevania III).

I was around during the NES period the home consoles were what people had but the Arcades were what people wanted.

Best 8 bit is the PC Engine by miles. (Has better version of most of the NES games I would otherwise have been interested in).

16 bit - All of them are great. If computers are included then it would have to be the X68000 though. It has the best arcade perfect versions of everything on it.

I found absolutely nothing wrong with NES games....They may of had the odd flickering here and there, but whocares? mapper chip? what? It wasn't the N64 era that was crippled by 'below' 30fps/frame rates and unappealing barren blocky 'n blurred visuals that had as much personality as a wet piece of toast. :P

The NES gave birth to so many amazing franchises, I'll never understand how it could be at the bottom of anybodies list unless it was before their time.
