The Commodore 64 is a PC.

The Atari 2600 is what people mean when they talk about "the Atari", so it should be on the list at least beside, if not in lieu of the 5200.

How serious a contender do these have to be? You've got the PS Vita at the bottom there which is just destined to get wrecked, so you might as well add some other poor souls like the Lynx, 3DO, CD-i, N-Gage, Game.com... does the R-Zone even count?

Also you can make the argument that the Game Boy Color is a separate thing from the regular Game Boy. Flip a coin on that one.

Replaced.

I'll take whatever.

Also you can make the argument that the Game Boy Color is a separate thing from the regular Game Boy. Flip a coin on that one.


Yeah, I wasn't sure about this. I feel like combining them into one entry is going to give the Gameboy even more final four power it doesn't need, so I guess I'll put Color in as a separate entry.

Ouya.

The only thing I've owned that's not on the list is the Gamepark GP2X

The 3DO and CD-I are missing.

Edit: And if Sega CD counts separate from Genesis, then the 32X should also be listed.
How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.

I'm gonna argue that the Genesis's addons ought to be considered peripherals since none of them function on their own, and because it makes more sense for the purposes of this poll to think in terms of "Sonic CD is a Genesis game that required an expensive peripheral" than "Sonic 3 is not a Sega CD game".

Surprise, this is actually a trap to find who can list the highest number of obscure consoles no one actually liked.

Winner is sacrificed to the volcano.
