Throughout the years that you have been a gamer you have owned many types of gaming devices. Handheld, mobile, console, or computer devices are some that you might have or still own. If you could pick just one of the many that you have owned, which would you pick and why? The games? The console it self? the timing of release? The memories?

PS3, so many great games. Best console I've ever played. The honor might go to the PS4 one day though. It's already moving in the right detection with Second Son.

Currently playing: Rune Factory 4, Batman: Arkham Origins (new game plus), Valkria Chronicles, and Uncharted 2.

The GameCube. Back then I never had to worry about what controller Nintendo would allow me to use for their games. It was a simpler time when their consoles had one controller option which you knew was going to work. Now whenever a Nintendo first-party title comes out I have to hope to high heavens that the game will support the Pro Controller.

Proud supporter of Sony and Nintendo and forever thankful that my girlfriend is every bit the gamer that I am.

Most versatile hardware there is with the largest library of games of any platform. Easy choice.

SNES. Wish I still had it.
My 3DS XL is pretty high on the list, though. I love it more and more everyday.

Probably my N64, as it was the first console I ever bought on release date and I have a ton of great memories from lugging it around to my friend's houses on weekends and playing Goldeneye, Mario Kart and hundreds of hours worth of wrestling games.

Yeah. I wish only 1 controller was supported for each game.

Well, as for hardware I personally own, it'll have to go to the 3DS. Hardware that's shared, the SNES.

Now playing:
Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS) | Fire Emblem Awakening (3DS) | Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)
Dream Address: 4100-3259-5964
I would come up with a clever name for my backloggery, but my name prevents it.

My Xbox 360. It has a great library of games (I currently own 93 retail games and 22 digital games for the system), the controller is wonderful, and I love the fact that the system has had a very long life. I'm a big fan of the 7th-gen consoles in general as I found it to be an exciting time to be a gamer. We saw the huge improvements in online gaming, the rise of indie games and countless great games.

Honourable mentions to the NES and 3DS!

Gamecube. I still love that little black box. My original still works. Best controller ever. It's home of my favourite Zelda title (Wind Waker) and my favourite Mario Kart and Smash Bros. I also agree with @Diddy_Kong. Back when you only had ONE controller type for a Nintendo system.

PS3 is probably a close second. I really love that system too. I think part of it has to do with the PS3 being the first console I ever bought with my own money. I was 15 when I bought it. I remember the first time I played Uncharted, it blew me away! Visually and narratively. I remember playing Uncharted 2 the night before my history exam instead of studying. Then I remember when Uncharted 3 was coming out, I had a calender in my locker and I was counting the days on it because I had put the collector's edition on preorder and everything. I think I have more memorable memories with the PS3 just because I was older when I got it and high school was a happier time in my life as well. I was friends with everyone, i did really well in school and I went to parties and whatnot. Whereas when I was in elementary school with the Gamecube, I didn't have a lot of friends, I got bullied and I did poorly in school. What would you rather remember, really?

"I am a freedom fighter, the name that history wrote
And even through disaster, eye of the tiger for hope
I'm trying to find my way back, there's no day off for heroes
And even when I'm tired, "go" is the only word I know"

Gameboy and the Atari Lynx have a special place in my heart bc it reminds me of good times. the Lynx was pretty awesome for its time.

I think that by the time Mario Kart and Smash Bros. come out, the Wii U will be my favorite tho.

Hard to single out one: Toss up between 3DS, N64, SNES and PS2. If I had to single out one though, SNES would probably get my vote.
