Here are the top ten video game consoles of all time. It is based on the quality of games, impact, and graphics.
10. Sega Saturn: Although it didn’t last very long due to the impending Sony Playstation in late ’95, this in my opinion sparked the revolutionary transition from cartridges to disks.

1. Nintendo Wii: I ranked the Wii number one because honestly it’s the most revolutionary and productive video game console ever made. You can play a host of games. Bowling, tennis, golf simulating games. You can even workout. Kids love it; parents love it. It’s fairly affordable. Nintendo Wii best console currently.
