The Console Wars: The Ultimate Winner

Well I can’t think of anything fun to make a console war about, so I guess it is finally time to end my Console War series. Today I will be simply adding up all the place numbers for each console throughout every one of my posts in the series. Then I will rank them from highest number to lowest number, the lowest number meaning the best ranked sum. So like golf basically.

This is no game, this will really see what is the greatest console of all time, as far as being ranked by abstract things are concerned anyway.  I will be writing a number after each console name. This number reflects its total score from all the other wars I’ve done.Well here they are, the 22 biggest consoles ever made, in ranking order from worst to best.

#22 Atari 5200-94

Top 10 Appearances-0

Best Rank-12th

Worst Rank-21st

This is the worst console ever, but only out of the best 22, so that’s at least one good thing to say about it. It’s name was ranked 19th, controller 21st, appearance 21st, game 21st, and price 12th.

Rough time for Atari, though it’s age and the market of video games during that age make these consoles really not stand a chance compared to today. It’s name ranked 21st, controller 20th, appearance 18th, game 20th and price 1st. Let’s hear it for the lowest priced console! That is something this one should be proud of!

Just barely scraping the 13th spot after the PS2 is Nintendo’s first major console and first on this list. The NES’ name ranked 4th, controller 16th, appearance 17th, game 16th and price 7th. It’s 2 top 10 ranks over the PS2’s 1 give it the better spot.

Worst Rank-18th

Sega’s second console is the third to appear on the list so far. It only beat the next ranked console in two wars out of the five, which is why it is the worst ranked out of the three. It’s name ranked 5th, controller 18th, appearance 12th, game 17th, and price 2nd.

Nintendo’s second console is the second to appear on this list. It’s name is ranked 10th, controller 9th, appearance 19th, game 10th and price 6th. The fact that it appeared in the top 10 four out of the five wars gets it the highest rank out of the three tied consoles.

Nintendo’s third console is the fourth of seven to appear. It’s name ranked 14th, controller 14th, appearance 13th, game 2nd, and price 5th.

The next three consoles are again tied. I ranked them by top 10 appearances, but numbers 5 and 4 tied with those, so I ranked them by which console placed better in each of the 5 wars.

#6 Nintendo Switch-47

Top 10 Appearances-2

Best Rank-3rd

Worst Rank-13th

Pretty darn good for a console that isn’t even out yet. This tied with the next two consoles, but had the least amount of top 10 appearances, thus the lowest rank. It’s name ranked 11th, controller 3rd, appearance 9th, game 11th, and price 13th.

This console had more top 10 appearances than the Switch, but tied with the next console on the list. The 360 received a worse ranking because the next console ranked higher in 3 out of 5 of the wars.

Worst Rank-22nd

Sega’s final console was considered ahead of its time. It’s very impressive rank on this list might prove it. It’s name ranked 3rd, controller 4th, appearance 14th, game 22nd, and price 4th. It tied with Switch and 360, but had more top 10 appearances than Switch, and beat 360 in 3 out of the 5 wars.
