You can only have EIGHT (8) retro consoles in your setup.

You can have more, but then you'd have to switch out the cables and it's a hassle and you don't want to deal with it.

What do you choose? I'm still undecided but for me:
>ps2
>n64
>gamecube
>Snes
>Genesis
>Saturn
>Dreamcast
>Neo Geo AES
On the fence about the neo geo, and I'd like to slot in a pc engine, but I'm on the fence about that one too.

    I'm taking backwards compatibility into account, so here's how my collection would end up being:

    NES
    SNES
    GBA (GB & GBC)
    Master System
    Genesis
    SEGA CD
    Game Gear
    PS2 (PS1)

    If backwards compatibility wasn't allowed, I'd go and swap the SEGA CD for the PS1, but that's it.

      Master system is redundant if you get a power base. Also I’d consider cd addons like the sega cd, pc engine cd, and N64 dd to be addons and not a separate console

        >GBA (GB & GBC)
        What about a Gamecube with a gameboy player accessory?

        I preferred to not count those as it sort of felt like cheating, but now that I think of it, OP had nothing saying that this wasn't allowed, so with that in mind my list would look like this for now:

        NES/Famicom + FDS
        SNES (GB/GBC/GBA w/ Super Game Boy)
        N64 + DD
        Game Cube (GB/GBC/GBA w/ Game Boy Player)
        Genesis (Master System w/ Power Base) + CD/32x
        Game Gear (Master System w/ Master Gear)
        PC Engine + CD-ROM
        PS2 (PS1)

        Well... I'd say that this is all I really need, with all of this I'd be able to play pretty much any retro video game I'm interested in, surely a few had to be left out, but that's part of these challenges.

    Alternatively, take out the GC and leave an empty spot with a few different types of wires so that I can quickly swap it out for N64 or PCE or whatever else.

    You now have room for only SEVEN (7) consoles. Which one do you cut?

    You pretty much cover everything with these. Rest is just addition.
    Genesis would obviously be the first additional console.
    Xbox for best graphics
    GameCube or N64 or Saturn not sure which one to leave out maybe Saturn

    8 is too much you can cover every system with backwards compatibility.

      Tastes vary, I would take the Genesis over a SNES any day. I had both, but in the end I had far more Genesis games than SNES ones, there were just more that appealed to me.

        Of course, I prefer SNES, but SNES vs Genesis was the only gen with no definitive winner.
        It's PS2 and GBA destroys the argument because of backwards compatibility. Backwards compatibility needs to be disabled for this question to make sense.

      That's my question to you. Why did you only quote the first seven words of his post? Is that only how far you got?

      I disagree with the whole notion of winners in some sort of console war in general but particularly "definitive winner" especially over 5th gen. If you say either PS1 or N64 was the "definitive winner" of that gen it's bound to trigger half the board into having a fit. GBA do even fir what OP was asking about.

        I get what you're saying overall, but well PS1 really oversold competition. Yes There are a lot of shovelware on PlayStation, still.
        While it might not be as good as Mario 64, Crash trilogy and Spyro trilogies do exist. It's got way more games overall.

        4th generation is a really unique case. It doesn't have that much ports, and on the cases of ports, they don't even work out great. Vast majority aren't of them aren't enjoyable to me on SNES. Where as on Genesis they are actually fun.
        Even from third parties you basically have different games specifically built for that system.
