Yeah that's a great post. Have to agree that the PS2 slim is a really cracking system. They fixed all those disc read errors and what have you and somehow made the console almost two dimensional. Absolute wizardry!

I gave mine away to a friend some time ago but I hear it's still going strong.

Man alive, GJones, there's a cracking level of effort put in there! Thumbs Up! Also please don't @ me with your talk of skin cells in the N64's controller hollow thanks.

Cheers Cappa! I always thought Dreamcast or N64 were my favourite growing up, but when I looked at them more objectively in retrospect, I think they are in correct positions. Not that it matters, it's just a bit of fun! I do miss that "15 years ago" PS2/DS era though. Console gaming was flourishing and handheld, perhaps moreso! It's still weird that there's no 3DS, and I still hold out hope Nintendo pops up in a Direct with "a new range of 3DS titles" and they stick all their GameCube stuff on there a la Luigi's Mansion. It would be simultaneously great and crap, but we'd buy them anyway.

That was such a fertile time for computer game creativity that I loved. It felt like we'd moved past graphics over graphics over graphics and saw some truly inspired and visionary stuff during that era. It felt like steps forward like the EyeToy, touchscreen controls and guitar-shaped controllers were happening every week. Fair enough, these days there's Virtual Reality, cloud gaming and on-demand gaming, but fuck that, "15 years ago" had the better games. 

I'll probably get round to doing another top ten in your style, gjones, with a focus on the system, controller and library.  Thumbs Up!

Personally games have come a long way and you can now have things like The Last of Us Part II which is of a different calibre and why I put the PS4 high due the library.

And I think we still get the creativity but it's no longer a THQ but an indie team that makes a game about a goose.

I would agree with this at least. What this era feels like it really lacks is mid-budget games, or smaller/portable titles from bigger studios (like TWEWY): games that combine invention and the willingness to experiment with just a bit more clout.
