New Poll - Last Gen Consoles
This exact poll was done over 5 years ago. With all the next-gen consoles released now, I felt it was time to bring this one back. Previously, PS3 won by a mere 4 votes (over the Wii). How will things fare this time? In the comments, feel free to list why you like each console and your favorite games for them. Me, I'm a PC gamer... My family's only owned Nintendo products, as I have many siblings (multiplayer components were huge factors in buying console games for the family). But man, I do want those other consoles for those juicy exclusives...

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results:
Question: How many series do you estimate that you have finished? (Oneshots are fine, doujinshi don't count, and series must be completed)
0-100 - votes: 4463 (33.5%)
100-300 - votes: 4355 (32.6%)
300-500 - votes: 1914 (14.3%)
500-700 - votes: 903 (6.8%)
700-1000 - votes: 525 (3.9%)
1000+ - votes: 1181 (8.9%)
There were 13341 total votes.
The poll ended: November 23rd 2013

Excluding the 1000+ option, it's a pretty nice curve! I'm somewhere in the 100-300 range probably.

I didn't own any consoles.

My only experience with console game was when I visited my cousin (PS1) and it was really really long time ago. For most part, I play PC games or use emulator.


» LilyNanami on November 23rd, 2013, 4:33am

Where's the I've no idea what those are option?


» butako chan on November 23rd, 2013, 11:45pm

Those are video game consoles...Derp.


» nakie08 on November 23rd, 2013, 4:35am

No handhelds? I DID have a Famicom when I was just a child but mostly I only had handheld consoles. GB, GBC, GBA, DS, 3DS, PSP. I played everything else on my desktop/laptop. And I also think there should be a "Didn't have any/didn't have interest" option


» connerity on November 23rd, 2013, 4:43am

[ x ] 3DS

Yeah, I get it's meant to re-do the old vote.
But I really can't choose between Wii and PS3. I can only safely say the Xbox 360 has less than 5 platform exclusive games that would interest me.


» RoxFlowz on November 23rd, 2013, 4:44am

PS3. Better multiplayer, better exclusives (in my opinion).

Favourite game: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen; Dark Souls and Demon's Souls were good as well.

I mainly use my PS3 nowadays to stream full hd mkv anime from my pc to my tv.


» Lanz16 on November 23rd, 2013, 4:59am

I would love to have and play Wii than PS3 ^_^


» Ame_Sama on November 23rd, 2013, 5:37am

Kinda hard to choice since I Have both PS3 and 360 (also 3DS and DSL which is not there), but I will chose PS3 since I have Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and Sengoku Basara games there smile


» forgottenone666 on November 23rd, 2013, 6:03am

I have all 3 but I chose Xbox 360. I always chose the Xbox 360 version of whatever game released on multiple consoles. I guess I like the controller the most for the Xbox 360 because I have large hands and it just feels more comfortable to use. My favorite games would probably have to be the Fallout and Elder Scrolls series.


» Damnedman on November 23rd, 2013, 6:50am

This is one of those polls where indifference doesn't really add any worthwhile statistics (since it's seeing which console is more popular out of the 3). Just don't vote if you don't have an opinion.

I don't own a console personally, but have played on friends'. From what I see, PS3 has better console exclusive games, but 360 has better multiplayer... I prefer PC for multiplayer, so PS3 for me.


» babel on November 23rd, 2013, 7:23am

PC-only (and a hell of a lot of hours on 2 PSPs I've owned since 2005- jailbroken of course..). I've played on other peoples PS3s and Xbawks 360s, but wasn't hugely impressed (although I DO like the Xbox controller - I use one on my PC for the few action & shooter games I play).


» cris0327 on November 23rd, 2013, 8:20am

Back in the days i have atari,nes,genesis,snes,ps1 to ps2. when PC became famous in my country new generation Game Consoles became almost extinct because of high price of games and the console itself and no support in my country,but i go with PS3 from the games i seen in the net and maybe someday i can get to play it(emulator?).


» Sari90 on November 23rd, 2013, 8:24am

I own all three consoles, but I mainly play the 360 because I like the controller better and I have Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, Dark Souls, and Fallout 3 on it.


» Di27 on November 23rd, 2013, 8:41am

LoL talk about old school...

PS4 all the way!! biggrin


» TaoPaiPai on November 23rd, 2013, 8:53am

i never did buy one of those

lack of interesting games
nr1 reason


» mleonard1995 on November 23rd, 2013, 9:06am

Cannot choose any one of the three. My family have Wii and PS3, and we are intending and taking time to get Wii U and PS4... Zelda, Final Fantasy and Call of Duty are the major series we're playing.


» Cthylla on November 23rd, 2013, 9:39am

Only Nintendo forever.


» xgemina on November 23rd, 2013, 9:41am

Need a PC only and None option for this survey. Personally, I'm a PC only type.


» annebel on November 23rd, 2013, 10:27am

Where's the 'none' option?


» NightSwan on November 23rd, 2013, 10:41am

I only play PC games, so unfortunately I can't vote.


» takeva on November 23rd, 2013, 11:13am

Sony all the way. Micro$oft needs to get a clue.


» Draconic on November 23rd, 2013, 11:52am

I demand a "None of them" option! wink smile


» deadphoenix on November 23rd, 2013, 11:56am

What about desktop?


» alexj2936 on November 23rd, 2013, 11:56am

Can we get an "all" option?


» SinsI on November 23rd, 2013, 12:45pm

Android smartphone.


» Recaro on November 23rd, 2013, 2:06pm

Gameboy Color.

I actually just got an Xbox 360 a little under a year ago. Before that I had a PS2 maybe 3 years ago? I'm now purely a PC gamer. I probably won't get a next-gen for a whiiiiiiiiiiiile.

So my vote is Xbox 360 merely because it's the only one I own.

I never got the whole 360 thing. The fuck does 360 have to do with it? The fuck Microsoft.


» kitty1826x on November 23rd, 2013, 2:37pm

I don't like this poll. I think something should change. Either
A) Change the question to 'Your choice of last generation game console'. (and keep the same options)
B) Keep the console but change the choices to Nintendo, Playstation, Xbox, Sega, Atari.(Maybe add handheld).

For A) those options are just last generation console now with the WiiU, PS4, and Xbox one. Plus it opens up a whole list of other consoles to be added in preference. Like I would pick N64 if that was an option. (Can't go specific if unless you count all of them, or only during a certain time.) Now with B) the options are broad enough where one can say Oh I'm a Playstation fan all the way.

Well that's my input on the new poll.

EDIT: Yay lambchopsil (I think) changed it to A).
I picked PS3 I have all three of those consoles and the one I like best is the PS3. I felt the 360 kept giving messing up like the red ring of death, and the Wii just wasn't appealing much. To me the PS3 was in the middle, because the 360 did have better games, and the Wii the graphics weren't great, but it's Nintendo it had Mario! Again even though the PS3 was in the middle I still used it the most.


» tactics on November 23rd, 2013, 3:18pm

I went for the Wii 'cos it's the only one I have.
My flatmate has a PS3, and I have played on that a few times. I enjoyed it too, but I decided to go with the console I have.


» Kina92 on November 23rd, 2013, 3:51pm

Making me choose was so not cool! XP However, I had to go with Xbox 360. I don't own a Wii, although I did enjoy playing it at friend's houses, and I only just got a PS3 a couple months ago! As much as I adore my PS3, I just couldn't choose it over my Xbox 360. I've spent countless hours playing on it, and I love it. X3


» ayashe on November 23rd, 2013, 3:58pm

Grew up poor, and still poor, so I've never had a gaming console before.


» KaoriNite on November 23rd, 2013, 10:06pm

Quote from ayashe

Kind of similar. Growing up we weren't poor, but these expensive consoles were definitely out of my family's price range. We only got the PS2 and Nintendo Cube because a family friend had two of them. Before that, the only one that my dad bought was the Sega Genesis.

Now that I make my own money, I wouldn't spend it on these ridiculously priced consoles. (Although if someone wants to give me a free one, I'd be all for that.) The only game that I'm into is the Sims.


» toshirodragon on November 23rd, 2013, 4:24pm

Can we have a none option for those of us who don't game? roll eyes


» Harimau on November 23rd, 2013, 7:24pm

^ PC Gaming Master Race

Poll should have two more options:

- Wii
- PS3
- Xbox 360
- None. PC gaming.
- None. Don't play games.


» SilverStorm on November 24th, 2013, 3:10am

+1 [ x ] PC Gaming Master Race


» Badkarma on November 23rd, 2013, 9:42pm

PS3, I guess, but... if it's multi-platform, I default to PC.


» mysstris on November 23rd, 2013, 11:10pm

I betting on a change in poll options sometime soon, within 24 hours at least.

How much do you want to bet? Because you're gonna lose that one. None of the options for this poll will change no matter what any of you say.

The intent and purpose is specifically for the last generation consoles, so that means no options for PC or handhelds. And there will not be a "All" or "None" option either. If you don't like it, don't vote.


» Harukko on November 23rd, 2013, 11:35pm

I only own a Wii console, sadly I haven't played a lot with it due to lack of time and the fact that I don't have games, since my sister's games got stolen and I don't have money because of college... -___-


» gwkimmy on November 24th, 2013, 11:15am

wii! i'm a nintendo whore forever. i haven't had any time to play any games lately though since i don't have the time ;(

my sister owns a ps3 and that comes at a close second, but i wouldn't trade it for my wii ever.


» mizaki2100 on November 24th, 2013, 11:59am

Wii because that's the only console I have. I only played harvest moon and zelda though.


» lynira on November 24th, 2013, 9:22pm

My vote goes to the Wii. I grew up on Nintendo games almost exclusively, and as a result I'm a pretty loyal Nintendo fan. (I did play games on the PC pretty heavily when I was very young--but that completely changed when I received an N64.)

To be honest though, I haven't played the Wii or Wii games that much (probably only 200-300 hours the whole time I've owned it), since recently there are a lot of other things competing for my time (didn't buy a Wii until maybe 2008 or '09, and by that time I was in college and had also discovered manga). I also don't care much for the Wii's main gimmick, motion controls--I'm fine with buttons, and also the name "Wii" is pretty dumb. But I do really like the virtual console: I enjoy using it to play old games, and I also think it was a very smart idea business-wise. I also don't mind that the Wii's technological capabilities were inferior to the other 7th gen consoles--it's already advanced enough that I don't really mind (in essence, "Blu-ray is better, but DVD is already good enough for me").

But what it really comes down to is the amount of fun I have when I play the games on it. Because of the thousands of hours I've spent since elementary school playing Nintendo games, when I play Wii games like Super Paper Mario, Animal Crossing CF, Zelda TP, etc., it's like visiting a good, old friend. To those who don't play games much, that may seem pathetic, and to those who do play, it may seem stupid to value nostalgia that highly when judging consoles and games. But hey, I think what matters most for games is enjoyability, and I'm an extremely nostalgic person, so it makes a huge difference to me. And it's not like I'm saying they're fundamentally better, I just personally like them and enjoy them more.


» himexcherry on November 25th, 2013, 6:47am

Xbox 360 for one reason and one reason only...Halo

» MinatoAce on November 25th, 2013, 10:58am

I'm certainly a PC-Gamer...
PC is the best choice from my point of view...
But, as you can see there is no PC option...
I'm going for Xbox...!!!


» GuttedGnome on November 25th, 2013, 11:00am

The only one in the poll i have is a PS3. Approximately an hour playtime on it after 3 years. roll eyes
PC all the way though. eyes


» meridianna on November 25th, 2013, 5:13pm

i guess 'no consoles' should be added
because me and many other people still don't have one of them or even never touch ._.

» scarletrhodelia on November 25th, 2013, 10:13pm

PC gaming only, never had a console unless you count Atari 2600.

It's not a fun poll if not everyone can vote. dead


» takeva on November 26th, 2013, 5:50am

LOL got to love all this " NO PC option!?!? cry "

Poll clearly says console. I'm going to be smart about this and say PCs aren't consoles. roll eyes

I play everything. I have a PS3, XBOX 360, and a Wii but I'm mostly on my desktop. This poll is just to get an idea of who liked which BIG 3 console, not every gaming device out there. No one is forcing anyone to vote. And I'm sorry if you feel left out but poll changes every week, don't see why this is such a big deal. There have been plenty of times where I didn't have an option to vote. If there was an option for everyone everywhere, life would be fair and we'd have no wars~!

» Nirhtuc on November 27th, 2013, 1:17am

I guess the results would be interesting for those who game (or however you say it), but yeah, the rest of us don't know. Not really an inclusive poll, but at least it's not religious... or gross.


» psycho-shocker on December 2nd, 2013, 4:34am

Next poll please....


» butako chan on December 2nd, 2013, 5:44pm

» pyonk on December 2nd, 2013, 11:54pm

me too. I hope the poll wont be biweekly..
