    I have a vtech V-smile lol

  2. Jon Christopherson on March 27, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    Time magazine is terrible

  3. attilathehun0 on March 27, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    PS2 best selling system of all time, but clearly inferior to the PS3.

  4. Woodenfan on March 27, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    Did they leave out the Virtual Boy? I don’t recall seeing it on the list.

  5. BlakePlayze on March 27, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    1941 is my favorite game in the whole world

  6. jarreddizzle on March 27, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    Wow, I had a Pico when I was 5 and I loved it! Glad to see it on a list for once!

  7. BlakePlayze on March 27, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    I have a fricken V-flash man

  8. Jungleman savetheforest on March 27, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    Genesis could of ranked a bit higher still making games today!! genesis ranked 11 and the snes number 5 no way!!

  9. Graham Stewart on March 27, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    The Megadrive/Genesis not even being in the top ten is ludicrous. It’s top three. Top five at worst.

  10. attilathehun0 on March 27, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    Even though the xbox one struggle at launch. Despite 40+million in sales. It is way better than the 360. The Xbox One S can actually upscale certain previous xbox generations games. BloodRayne 2 and Panzer Dragoon Orta are breath taking. 2005-2009 360 models=The 3 Rings of Death.

  11. jovon J on March 27, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Surprised Sega Genesis didn’t crack the top ten.

  12. Komagb on March 27, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    This is an amazing video, so much work and time must have gone into it, spot on humor throughout, entertaining and informative, quite the historical sweep, and strong production values. I may disagree with some rankings, but that’s fine. Big thumbs up!

  13. craig gallaghger on March 27, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    where was panasonic 3do..with night trap & gex & video motion enabled need for speed??????

  14. Yes PLZ on March 27, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    Never considered Switch a console, but i guess it is.

  15. attilathehun0 on March 27, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    The PlayStation was a huge seller, but most of it’s library is really hard on the eyes. There is a small amount of real time 2d cartoons from PS1 era played on the PS3 that are decent such as Metal Slug, Rayman, Gex, Castlevania, Breath of Fire 3 & 4 ect..

  16. Z on March 27, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    The Xbox 360 is the second best console ever made, apparently. The amount of completely nonsensical placements on this ranking is staggering.

    I love the 360 and it was an excellent system but it’s the perfect illustration of just how completely you’re missing the forest for the trees.

  17. Disney Cats Roblox on March 27, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    That’s not all

  18. JimmyZ Jam on March 27, 2020 at 4:11 pm

    No matter how many consoles rolled out in the 70’s… Calico and Atari were the most used around that time. Everyone I knew had one or the other… and some had both

  19. AJE23 on March 27, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    Naw the 360 is the GOAT

  20. firstname lastname on March 27, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    Quarantined, so perfect time to watch videos that last an hour and a half

  21. TheFacelessGod on March 27, 2020 at 4:20 pm

    Kuh-lee-co-vision lol not ca-lekko-vision.

  22. iggypopshot on March 27, 2020 at 4:21 pm

    Yeah,…. No.

  23. Dubbz J on March 27, 2020 at 4:22 pm

    no panasonic REAL i use to play that alot as a kid i thought it was first to disk but i guess not

  24. leojpeg on March 27, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    huge undertaking, brilliantly in depth, but confused as to how xbox one can be so low based on factors that didnt seem to effect the placing of some others? still a brilliant video though

  25. TripleJump on March 27, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    What did you make of our rankings? What else would you like to see us rank from worst to best? LET US KNOW!

  26. Brave Diomedes on March 27, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    It should be PS3s instead of PS3. Or maybe the POS3? Everyone who bought one owned at least 3 of them because they were so poorly made they didn’t last more than 3 months without breaking.

  27. Caesar Prime on March 27, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    lol I had a LJN video art when I was in 5th grade. It was so bad.

  28. Arty on March 27, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    wheres the Colecovision??

  29. Stoney_Eagle on March 27, 2020 at 4:28 pm

    My gawd what a work to put this all together… Kudos there man!!

    I had a feeling the PS2 would end up on top, the PS1 was a massacre to all other console brands.
    And then people say you’re a fan boy when you say a Playstation is better than a Xbox.
    The Playstation just leaves a good impression every generation it makes on the user.
    The Xbox in the other hand…. to put it nicely it’s just a pc that only does one thing, utilize the DirectX functionality of windows riddled with issues.

  30. Chuck bytheriver on March 27, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    Is it me or the virtual boy is missing from this list

  31. Christmas Hake on March 27, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    Eh. I’ve seen better movies for free. 😛

    No, but seriously, WONDERFUL work again on this list! I can’t IMAGINE the literal weeks of raw time that went into putting this boondoggle of a project together. Well done! 🙂 (As for worst-to-best suggestions: Mario and Sonic for mega-lists, God Of War and Silent Hill for shorter ones.)

  32. my praystation on March 27, 2020 at 4:31 pm

    51:33 that’s a Huuge disc!

  33. 22RiaKon22 on March 27, 2020 at 4:32 pm

    Amazing job, guys. This was not only fun, but also very educational. Enormous amount of work must have been put into this vid. I’m very impressed, even though the rankings are never perfect.
    Also nice to see that Playstation really is the leader of the new era (being fond of PS myself).

  34. Chuck bytheriver on March 27, 2020 at 4:32 pm

    Possibly the greatest video about consoles history ever made

  35. Digital Avatar Video Productions on March 27, 2020 at 4:33 pm

    Atari 2600 needs to be in the top 10. Show some respect

  36. Temmie Plays on March 27, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    This was made in the 1/1/2020

  37. James Savel on March 27, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    The voice here sounds like one of the guys from outsideXbox

  38. Everton Junges on March 27, 2020 at 4:38 pm

    The best game plataform ever: PC!

  39. Douglas Tallent on March 27, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    Nintendo Wii u higher than Xbox one ??????

  40. br ab on March 27, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    40:47 I love you guys, but this part is aggressively stupid commentary. Of course girls played games, but they didn’t ever BUY them. Marketing towards a young girl demographic was a logical shot in the dark. As for the games content, did you not have sisters or know people with sisters? When they did play games, they OVERWHELMINGLY played dress up, dating, horse, board game, etc related games. Sure, they would branch out, but this was a very slim minority. If you’re going to sell to that demo, you’re going to cast a wide net. The existence of a "girls only" type console in NO way detracts from the availability of other consoles and other games.

  41. craig gallaghger on March 27, 2020 at 4:40 pm

    commodore amiga ran games better than 98% of these crappy consoles

  42. Robin May on March 27, 2020 at 4:42 pm

    Lol he put Little Britain at the end, one of the worst games ever

  43. Gipsy FromSpace on March 27, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    You guys talked about the Gamecube without talking about Melee, that’s a sin.

  44. Joshua Verrier on March 27, 2020 at 4:45 pm

    What, no mention of the Dendi?

  45. Gábor Szűcs on March 27, 2020 at 4:46 pm

    Not counting handhelds…
    Then praising the switch for being a handheld that can play skyrim….ok dude. And how it is a handheld if it not fits in your pocket? Then every other tablet is also a handheld. Or every other laptop.

    I like the video though and I acknowledge the fact that it did the research (mostly)

  46. BlakePlayze on March 27, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    X-BOX one beats ps2

  47. attilathehun0 on March 27, 2020 at 4:52 pm

    The WII U was actually launched in 2012 as 1 year head start to compete with the PS4 and Xbox One. Clearly a bigger failure than the Xbox One. I like hand held consoles. I wish the Switch was the size of a DS making it more portable.

  48. Andre Louis on March 27, 2020 at 4:53 pm

    You know that thing when you open youtube and go down a rabbit hole of epic proportion and you wonder where your day went? No? Just me then.
    Well I’ve spent many a day like that and especially under lockdown it’s a good escape.
    Most times one might close down a video, move on to the next and think ‘yeah, nice, now what?
    In this case however, I’m blown away by:
    1. The length of this video.
    2. The quality of the work put into it.
    3. The narration, which was absolutely and unquestionably top-notch.

    I’m annoyed that youtube doesn’t have a love button, just like. It’s far too tame and understated for what I think of this.

    I just wanted to take the time to come and say fantastic work, and I take my headphones off (because I do not wear hats, ever!) to the creators and producers of this video and offer my thanks for the incredible effort that went into this.

    Thank you.

  49. Peter von Feldt on March 27, 2020 at 4:54 pm

    I think you shouldve added the virtual boy in this list because it definitely wasn’t a handheld or portable system and it definitely flopped.

  50. Real American Negro on March 27, 2020 at 4:56 pm

    In my opinion the PS2 era of gaming was the last real great era of gaming up till now.
