Top 5 Best and Worst Video Game Platforms of All Time


Gaming is one of the most popular hobbies in the world. It’s a fantastic way to make friends and share experiences. Some gamers are experts who can diagnose a system’s pros and cons at first glance, but others simply enjoy playing games without worrying too much about how they’re running in the background. In this post I’m going to look at some of the best platforms for gaming over the last few decades.

Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 was the first console to have a built-in hard disk drive. It was also the first video game console with a built-in wireless adapter, and it was the first video game console that had a HDMI output.


The PlayStation 2 (also known as PS2) is one of the most popular platforms in gaming history and was released by Sony back in 2000.

It was the first console to sell over 100 million units worldwide, so it’s no surprise that many gamers still cherish their PS2s today.

If you’ve ever picked up a controller or turned on your console and found yourself transported into a virtual world, then you know just how addicting video games can be! So what makes them so great? Well for one thing, they’re fun! Another perk is that they allow us to experience things we might never get to do otherwise—like travel around the globe without leaving home or become superheroes who save cities from destruction by evil forces. Beyond all this though lies something deeper: video games teach us not only about ourselves but also about life itself; how we interact with others and how these interactions affect our relationships with those around us (both good & bad).

Atari 2600

Atari 2600 is a classic game console introduced by Atari, Inc. in September 1977. It was the first console to use a microprocessor and also the first to use ROM cartridges instead of using interchangeable magnetic-tape cassettes like its competitors at the time.

It was released with two launch titles: Air-Sea Battle and Basic Math (which would later be renamed Math Gran Prix!), but over 2,000 titles were released for it during its lifetime.

The controller used on this system was called Paddles; it consisted of two paddle-shaped wooden controllers connected by wires. The paddles were designed so that players could play each other if they wanted to play multiplayer games together on one TV set – no extra controllers needed! The best part about Atari 2600’s controllers is that they come with fire buttons!

Nintendo 64

The Nintendo 64 was released in 1996 and is the first console to have four controller ports, a 64-bit processor, and an analog stick. The Nintendo 64 had many great games like Super Mario 64 which was considered by many to be one of the greatest games of all time.

Nintendo 64 games are still being played today by millions of people who have fond memories of playing these classic titles when they were growing up with their friends and family members.


The Playstation 3 is the best video game console of all time. It has a lot of great games, and I love playing them.

The games I like are:

  • Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
  • Call of Duty Black Ops 1/2/3 (these three games are in order, with number 2 being my favorite)
  • FIFA 15 (This game is an awesome soccer simulator)

Sega Genesis

Sega Genesis was a popular game console in the 1990s. It had a lot of great games, and it was the first console to have a CD drive.

Sony Playstation

Sony Playstation

Released in 1994, the Sony Playstation was the first real console to have a CD drive. This meant that it could play games in much higher quality than its predecessors. It also introduced 3D gaming and memory cards which allowed players to save their progress as they played different games. The controller had four buttons and one analog stick, but this was still considered revolutionary at the time because most controllers had only three buttons and no analog joystick at all!

Wii U

The Wii U is a home video game console developed by Nintendo and the successor to the Wii. It was initially released in November 2012 and succeeded by Switch, which was released in March 2017. The console was first officially revealed at E3 2011 on June 7th during a press conference held by Nintendo.The Wii U is the eighth generation home console and the first in the Wii series of consoles.

The system’s primary controller is called the GamePad, which features an embedded touchscreen that can be used to supplement gameplay or provide additional information about whatever you might be playing at any given moment (it also comes with its own set of buttons so that you don’t have to use touch controls at all times).

Xbox One X

The Xbox One X is a video game console by Microsoft. It is the most powerful gaming console ever made, and the first video game console to be able to play games in 4K. The Xbox One X was released in November 2017, with a price tag of $499 USD for just the base model (there are more expensive models with more memory).

The Xbox One X has many features that make it different from previous systems like the PlayStation 4 or Nintendo Switch:

  • It has 8-core CPUs instead of 4-core CPUs like on other consoles
  • It has 12GB GDDR5 RAM instead of 8GB DDR3 RAM like on previous generations

Video games are fun and sharing that experience with others can be awesome.

It’s been said that video games are a social experience. Sharing gaming with others can be amazing and is important for any gamer. The best way to share your experience is by playing together, online or locally.

If you’re looking to play with friends or family, playing on the same console offers a similar experience as playing in person but without any of the hassle of getting everyone together at the same time and place. Video games are fun because they allow us to relax and escape our daily struggles; this is why they’re so popular among kids who have homework assignments due to their inability to focus on anything other than their favorite title at hand!
