    GAME Customers Say 1996 Was Gaming Golden Year, Names Wii As Best Ever Console

    Two thousand GAME customers were surveyed to find out what year they thought was the golden year of gaming and which video game console was the best of all-time. The customers named 1996 as the best year for video games. There were a staggering

    amount of quality titles released including Resident Evil, Super Mario 64, Tekken 2, Crash Bandicoot, and Tomb Raider. The Wii was voted the best console of all-time by the customers, beating the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Here’s the results:
    Top Five Years for Gaming

    1. 1996 (14%): Tomb Raider and Crash Bandicoot on the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 launched. We were singing along to Baddiel and Skinner’s Three Lions and Brit Pop was at its height

    2. 2002 (13%): Halo and Elder Scrolls III on the Xbox and Grand Theft Auto Vice City. BBC 6 Music arrived on our airwaves and Arsenal won the FA Cup

    3. 1991 (12%): Street Fighter II and Super Mario World on SNES and Lemmings was out on the PC. It was the start of the Iraq war and the year Bryan Adams made history when (Everything I Do) I Do It For You entered its 15th successive week at number one

    4. 1985 (11%): Super Mario Bros, Duck Hunt and Donkey Kong Jr on the NES and Ultima IV and Oregon Trail on the PC. It was the year Eastenders went on air and the mullet was considered the most desirable hairstyle for men and women alike

    5. 1980 (10%): Pac-Man and Centipede in the arcade, Space Invaders on the Atari 2600 and Zork on the PC. It was the year John Lennon was shot dead and David Bowie was at number one with Ashes to Ashes
    The Top Consoles of All Time

    1. Wii (15%)

    2. Xbox 360 (10%)

    3. PlayStation 3 (9%)

    4. PlayStation 2 (8%)

    5. Sega Mega Drive (7%)

    6. PlayStation 1 (6.5%)

    7. Super Nintendo (6%)

    8. Game Boy (5%)

    9. N64 (4.5%)

    I wont put the Wii as number 1. Maybe a few Number two's, but certainly not the top spot. That should be reserved for classic consoles of the time

    That is so weird, because I actually have the Wii listed as the worst console ever made.

    I wouldn't put the Wii as best ever console. I think if they sent the survey out via email they would get different results.
    I can read your thoughts.

    1996 was a good year for gaming
    So was 1998/1999/2001/2002/2004/2008/2011 and 2013 by the looks of it

    Perfect Dark is the best looking N64 game by far also the amount of customisations was insane. From controls up to character manipulation, alien head on Joanna's body but the best was $#@! slapping each other then shooting the crap out your mate with the gun they just dropped.
