#3 Super Nintendo (1990 - 2003)
For the bulk of Gen Y and Gen X gamers, this is where the love affair started. The Super Nintendo (affectionally known as 'the SNES') was the best selling console of the 16-bit generation for a very good reason: it had better games. Sega Megadrive owners may have got more blood 'n' gore in their version of Mortal Kombat, but the SNES trumped it in every other category. Its Mode 7 graphics engine brought believable 3D environments to games such as Star Fox, Pilot Wings and Super Mario Kart, while its numerous arcade ports were pixel perfect. Today, people remember their SNES with the fondness of a dearly departed relative: gaming wasn't a hobby any more. It had become a thing of love.
