    Are you saying Nintendo is the worst out of the big 3? PlayStation you are a big mistake. PlayStation is the worst thing to ever come to mankind.

  2. Sir Tanny 23 on December 9, 2020 at 9:05 pm

    Peter and Ben? Peter is he your uncle?

  3. Will Douglas on December 9, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    Really looking forward to the 168 hour long Every Loading Screen Ranked from Worst to Best.

  4. Soviet General 123 on December 9, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    i acctually bought a vtech vsmile from a local goodwill yesterday only knew what it was from this video so thanks for helping to expand my collection!

  5. James Fleming on December 9, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Only 1:20 into the video and already calling for the PS2 being the best console.

  6. Adam Hayden on December 9, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    Dreamcast should have been in top 10 at least

  7. AJ on December 9, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    This list is fucking retarded the Pico ahead of the Xbox one???? The OG Xbox ahead of the NES?????????? WTF?? Lmao

  8. psycosis12 on December 9, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    23:20…what is that thing doing to the dirt?

  9. Richard Harris on December 9, 2020 at 9:13 pm


    Was expecting more female action tbh

  10. Liam Spellburg on December 9, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    I loved my Playstation 3 I cleaned it monthly I kept it happy I fed delicious games. I had it for almost 10 years then I traded it to upgrade to a Playstation 4 I was sad I didn’t sleep that night I felt like I had to get rid of one of my children I took such care of that PlayStation 3. I hope it brought someone else as much fun as it brought me over the years. The last game I played on the PlayStation 3 was CSI I thought that was a fun game. I put PlayStation 3 PlayStation 2 in Super Nintendo was the best systems ever created.

  11. Adam Hayden on December 9, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    I don’t think Nintendo saved videos games, they would’ve made a comeback regardless of Nintendo, as for everything else that’s speculation and your guess is as good as mine

  12. Fred Rock on December 9, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    That’s a good question and what is popular now I understand is it several hundred dollars too expensive can one still have a lot of fun with one of these three here which one would you recommend has the biggest library collection assortment of action packed fun videos like I saw that there was a video a game made for Scarface the world it looks like a fun game. Now it says that it’ll play on Playstation 2 which I don’t have and PC is that personal computer I would have to get some kind of particular game handle handheld game thing that I would plug into PlayStation to the USB Jack anybody got some suggestions on that particular game and would have to get a plug-in USB handheld multi-f multi-features press for the guns to make them run and stuff like that toggle switch?

  13. Dan D on December 9, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    is this based on sales?

  14. raonely on December 9, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    In curious I straight up skipped to last to see what’s the top and as i expected it was PS2 💙. Liked and Subscribed. PS2 Forever 💯. And then watched the full video 😅 again.

  15. Miles Majeran on December 9, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    What about the Nintendo Playstation? Before Sony released the PS1 they partnered with Nintendo and made a Nintendo Playstation, only 200 of them exist.

  16. TripleJump on December 9, 2020 at 9:17 pm

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

  17. Colby Everett on December 9, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    You really need to learn how to pronounce the game systems you’re referring to. Pisses me off.

  18. Spittertron on December 9, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    What about every Youtube channel worst to best?

  19. Steve on December 9, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    why is the NES, SNES, and wii above the switch? Ik the NES is very important but why are they above the switch

  20. Cole Vanner on December 9, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Nintendo 64
    XBOX 360

  21. Youtuber479 on December 9, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    I would guess the ps2 overall is the best

  22. Grant Garrett on December 9, 2020 at 9:25 pm


  23. MegaAppleshit on December 9, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Pre watch guess for #1
    Either PS2, N64, Nintendo DS, or Xbox 360.

    Edit: No handhelds so scratch the DS

  24. SAN ANDERSON on December 9, 2020 at 9:26 pm

  26. Nikko Doan on December 9, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    The list I didn’t think I needed until I started watching on a Monday morning.

    How could you possibly rank GameCube beneath Xbox Original, when GameCube had better games while Xbox was a shovelware console? Microsoft has always been inferior to Sony in terms of consoles & let’s face it Xbox was only created as a way of avoiding laws against monopolizing. By making a game console Microsoft was able to claim Nintendo & Sony were rival companies in case it was realized that Apple wasn’t really competing against them. Apple chose the mobile device market exclusively while Microsoft avoided that area in favor of larger & more powerful hardware.

    GameCube had hundreds of great games, faster load times thanks to its smaller disc size, & created possibly the greatest controller ever made. Listing Switch & GameCube both as being worse than NES & SNES is just dumb. It’s always going to be a battle between Sony & Nintendo over which is the better game company. As for PS2 it should be noted that it was the weakest of the 4 Gen6 consoles in terms of hardware & only really became the most successful console of all time thus far because Sony was as lucky as they were brutal. The head of SoA (Sega) during most of the Saturn Era was a Sony Agent named Stolar who did everything possible to sabotage Saturn outside Japan while telling people to buy PlayStation instead. Then Sony got lucky with Microsoft attacking the only company that stood a chance of rivaling them during Gen 6. Sony was brutal to developers & could get away with it because they were top dog.

    Had Microsoft & its loyal critics attacked Sony instead of Nintendo the Gen 6 console wars would have been much different. Can you imagine the alternate universe where Kingdom Hearts was actually released on GameCube? Well I would have to list the Top20 of this universe as follows 20)Sega Pico, 19)Atari 2600, 17/18)Xbox & Xbox1, 16)Master System, 15)WiiU, 14)Saturn, 13)N64, 12)Dreamcast, 11)Famicom, 10)Xbox 360, 9)PS3, 8)Genesis, 7)SNES, 6)PS1, 5)PS4, 4)GameCube, 3)Wii, 2)Switch, 1)PS2.

    In terms of console makers Nintendo & Sony are rivals for being the best in the industry, Sega is 3rd Place because they actually tried to make their consoles appealing & had substance to their games. Microsoft is 4th because somehow they are still alive despite how much they tend to suck. Atari is 5th Place because they actually were successful enough to be remembered with the 2600.

  28. Donald rump 2020 on December 9, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    I still by playstation 2 games for backwards compatibility

  29. Austin Reed on December 9, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    I wonder which consoles are missing?

  30. Token W on December 9, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    GameCube over N64? And why is the NES so low?

  31. DragonChaserKev on December 9, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    Col E co vision – not col echo vision

  32. CarnorJast1138 on December 9, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Best Game Console of ALL-TIME: The Mattel Intellivision. Period. Nothing more needs to be said.

  33. skorpiius on December 9, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Awesome video. I’m curious where the Commodore 64 would land in your list based on the criteria?

  34. Jesse The pond hopper on December 9, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    So this is one person’s opinion sweet

  35. Layal Alawi on December 9, 2020 at 9:41 pm


  36. Michigan dude on December 9, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    I have the v smile

  37. tomatodamashi on December 9, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    At 41:00 he sarcastically talks about how the industry "refused" to accept that girls like video games. If you look at the sales figures by demographics, girls were not asking their parents to buy video games at the time. Even now, aside from smart phone games, girls (in general) tend to avoid video games. Yes, some do like it, but many don’t. Things are changing, but if you go to a video game store, it’s mostly boys/men. If you look at the audience for twitch streamers, it’s mostly boys/men. If you look at sales figures for the latest consoles/console games/Steam games, it’s mostly boys/men. You may want to politically wish that it were different, but that’s where the tastes of the population predominately lay. The console in question was a desperate attempt to get girls interested in games. (Seal in Japanese means sticker, which girls WERE interested in at the time). If they wanted to buy famicom (at the time), they could, but they weren’t. The games industry didn’t delusionally refuse to accept the fact, they would’ve been HAPPY to take money no matter where it came from, but girls were nowhere near as interested in games as boys were. I’m not sure what’s so hard to understand.

  38. fukkatsu on December 9, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    Thanks for reminding me of my first console.. the Videopac! I think you missed the Commodore 16 and Plus 4 (I had a Plus 4). PS: I’m getting a Switch tomorrow after much deliberation and I don’t even consider myself a gamer.

  39. meg Griffin on December 9, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    Ps2 is the goat

  40. Romulo Reyes jr on December 9, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    Worst review of consoles ever…

  41. luke the dragon on December 9, 2020 at 9:52 pm

  43. DeanOfGameStudies on December 9, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    PS2 the worlds number one DVD player.

  44. Untitled Show on December 9, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    You should rank every movie ever made from worst to best.

  45. Cole Vanner on December 9, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    “We will rank by their importance to gaming” *Nintendo 64 in 13th* Mario 64 literally saved gaming all together

  46. Bruno Agreda on December 9, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    I’m proud to have a PS2 in 2020

  47. Lamington on December 9, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Sega dreamcast and n64 should’ve been higher

  48. Mattyfresh Universe on December 9, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Some of these system’s are laughable

  49. Ian Webster on December 9, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    OMG you missed out the Crazy Frog series of PS2 games!

  50. Moraleza on December 9, 2020 at 10:01 pm
