    Question The Best Game on Every Console

    Only counting the consoles you've played/owned, what do you consider to be the best game for it? For predominate PC gamers, try to stick within technology eras as best as you can.

    This will be hard to do! There might be games I would find better than whatís on this list, but I either havenít played them or they just arenít games I constantly come back to time and again. Iím basically going with the games I just never grow tired of.

    NES: Mario 3
    Turbografx-16: Aero Blasters I guess?
    SNES: Mario World
    Genesis: Sonic 2
    Saturn: NiGHTS into dreams
    Dreamcast: Grandia II
    Ps1: Metal Gear Solid and Symphony of the Night are tied
    N64: Mario 64
    Ps2: Kingdom Hearts
    Gamecube: Soul Calibur 2
    Xbox: Halo 2
    Wii: Xenoblade Chronicles
    PS3: Journey
    Xbox 360: Skate 3 (I think thatís the one)
    Wii U: Mario Kart 8
    PS4: Persona 5
    Xbox One: Sunset Overdrive, I guess
    Switch: Breath of the Wild and Splatoon 2 are tied at the moment for different reasons
    Game boy: Pokemon Red
    Game boy Color: Pokemon Crystal
    Game Gear: Sonic
    GBA: Kingdom Hearts Re:CoM
    Psp: Peace Walker
    Vita: Persona 4 Golden
    DS: The World Ends With You
    3ds: Theatrhythm curtain call

    Iím blanking on if there are any systems Iím missing that Iíve played. Iím sure some Iíll think of different games for a few of these systems once I post this too.

    NES - Super Mario Bros 3
    Mega Drive - Sonic The Hedgehog 2 or Golden Axe
    GBC - Pokemon Red
    GBA - Pokemon Ruby
    PS1 - Final Fantasy VIII
    PC (90's) - Dungeon Keeper
    PS2 - Final Fantasy X
    PC (00's) - RollerCoaster Tycoon 2
    PS3 - Call of Duty: World at War or Tekken Tag Tournament 2
    PS4 - Rocket League

    This is tough. It's hard not to fit in some favourites like Kingdom Hearts, Warzone 2100, Tekken 7, or Micro Machines for the SNES. Some I couldn't choose between.

    I'd have to give this a lot of thought if I were to pick out what I considered the actual best games, since there are a lot of factors that would have to go into a list like that, so I'll just take the easy way out and put my favorites instead. Or, at least, the ones that come into my head.

    NES - Shatterhand
    SNES - Final Fantasy 6
    N64 - Tetrisphere
    Gamecube - Mario Kart: Double Dash
    Wii - Punch-Out!!

    Gameboy - Donkey Kong '94
    Gameboy Color - Gen the Carpenter
    Gameboy Advance - Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
    Nintendo DS - Pokemon Diamond / Pearl

    Sega Master System - Pit Pot
    Sega Game Gear - Sonic the Hedgehog
    Sega Genesis / Mega Drive - Sonic 2
    Sega CD - Snatcher
    Sega Dreamcast - Tech Romancer (Sorry, LB 2 D': )

    PS1 - Gran Tourismo 2 (Probably, anyway; picking an actual favorite here is damn near impossible.)
    PS2 - Ar Tonelico
    PSP - Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth
    PS3 - Mass Effect 2 (Probably, anyway; I don't have particularly strong feelings for anything on the console)

    Atari 2600 - Warlords
    Neo-Geo - The Last Blade 2
    Neo-Geo Pocket Color: SNK vs Capcom: Card Fighters Clash
    TG-16 - Final Lap Twin/
    TG-16 CD - Castlevania: Rondo of Blood
    OG xBox - Halo: Combat Evolved
    PC - X-COM: UFO Defense (aka UFO: Enemy Unkown)

    Atari 2600 - Frogger
    NES - Mega Man 2
    Sega Genesis - Sonic and Knuckles
    Super Nintendo - Chrono Trigger
    Game Gear - Lemmings
    Game Boy - Tetris
    Sega CD: Lunar: The Silver Star
    PC: Civilization 2
    Sega Saturn - Sonic R (fight me)
    PlayStation - Xenogears
    N64 - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
    Dreamcast - Marvel vs. Capcom or any Arcade port really
    PlayStation 2 - Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence
    Gamecube - The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

    PS4: Persona 5 or Bloodborne

    I'm sure I'm forgetting someone. Also, while I have played on Microsoft's consoles, most of it was getting stuck playing Halo with friends and it's the only series I've played, so I don't really have enough knowledge of the systems to pick a game I like.

    PC: Civilization II, Freelancer, Dwarf Fortress, probably something else after that but idk off the top of my head
    SNES: Final Fantasy V
    PSP: FFVII: Crisis Core
    GB/GBA/DS etc: Pokťmon games
    PS1: Final Fantasy VII
    PS2: It's weird, I loved the PS2 for so long but nothing springs to mind.
    PS3: Uncharted 2
    PS4: World of Final Fantasy
    XB360: Mass Effect 2

    Honestly I could do this again in five minutes and my answers, FFVII excepted, would probably change notably.

    NES - The Legend of Zelda
    SNES - A Link to the Past
    PSone - Final Fantasy VII
    PS2 - I have no idea, like BoB noting comes to mind.
    PC - Diablo 2 or Civilization 2. I pt way too much time into both of these.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Fun idea! I haven't owned that many systems but still a tough go:

    NES: Super Mario 3
    SNES: FFVI (Toughest one of the bunch to only pick one)
    N64: Goldeneye
    Wii: Xenoblade Chronicles
    Sega Genesis: Sonic 2

    PS1: I could cheat and say Final Fantasy Chronicles so I can sneak Chrono Trigger on here... that or Xenogears
    PS2: Dragon Quest VIII
    PS3: Grand Theft Auto IV
    PS4: The Witcher III
    PSP: Final Fantasy Tactics: War Of The Lions

    Take care all.
