As it came up with conversation with a friend, and as I debate if I want to more seriously collect games, and as something I could talk about on a future YouTube video, and as something I was always wondering anyway, I was wondering if we could name our five favourite games on each major home console. (Or you could mention some minor consoles, too, if you really want, that'd be interesting, especially in the '90s.) Handhelds and computers, too.
But let's add a rule, to make things interesting. This will either make this more difficult or more easy, depending on how you look at it.
The rule is, the games mentioned have to be absolutely EXCLUSIVE for that platform during its "active years".
For example, I would say Final Fantasy VII for the PlayStation wouldn't count, as a port for the PC came out only eight months later. But Super Mario Bros. 3 wouldn't be disqualified on the NES just because of the remastered version of it included in Super Mario All-Stars on the Super NES. Other collections even with minimal or no upgrading might be okay too, like the six Mega Man games on the NES shouldn't be disqualified because of Mega Man: Anniversary Collection and Mega Man: Legacy Collection which came out years later. Battletoads on the Genesis doesn't negate Battletoads on the NES, so that's fair game, because for the purposes of this, I would only compete the Genesis against other consoles its generation, i.e. the Super NES., even if the Genesis did compete with the NES for a couple years.
Basically, I'm trying to get at, what are the five games that you think are the best on each console, and when mentioned, every gamer understands what console you mean, without it having to be said?
