10 rounds of 5, vote 3 forward. I'm giving an auto-pass to the SNES round 1.

That'll leave us with 30+ the SNES going into the next round, and there will probably be a tie or two in this round so maybe a bit more. In any case, close enough to 32 to go down the standard 32-16-8-4-2-1 with a little further manipulation.

As usual, completely unseeded so some of the weaker consoles might make it pretty far if they have no competition.

First up!

44. Turbo-CD
31. Lynx
37. ColecoVision
11. NINTENDO SIXTY-FOUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRR
10. Playstation

Remember, vote for 3 to advance.

IMPORTANT COLECOVISION FACTS

It comes with a pretty sweet port of Zaxxon.

No other console's games dared to make "a small tuft of grass" your deadliest enemy.


THIS CONTROLLER
Image

It displays 32 sprites! All at once!

You could get an expansion unit that let it play Atari 2600 games. So, if you think about it, it's strictly superior to the 2600.

Oh, did you not like that controller? Then try on The Super Action Controller!

Advanced flight simulator technology:


The name stands for Connecticut Leather Company.

Plot twist: Lynx now has two votes! (I was not either of them)
How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.

I'm not the Wii U's biggest fan, but I feel its underperformance here is more due to reputation (and the Switch's nearly complete cannibalizing) than anything else. There were three games on the system that I spent more time with than all of these other consoles combined, and none of those were even Smash, Mario Kart, or Zelda.

Wii U is an incredible console, even more so if you hack it. It's my favorite on this list and I was very surprised to see it trailing.

The Game.com had it all. Still not sure how such an excellent product failed, except perhaps that it was too far ahead of its time.

The DS, though—there's a stinker. Two screens? Just absurd. Fans had it out over Nintendo's epic blunder, and rightly so.

I'm going to assume that the two votes for the Game.com are Brentai and someone who was impressed at how bad the ad was

I love the Odyssey 2 because every screenshot of every Odyssey 2 game looks like something someone would draw by hand if forced to come up with a fake videogame
