Most used retro gaming console by US StateJuly 2, 2019
Console games, time with buddies, so many awesome memories. But did you ever asked yourself? Top 10 retro consoles in the USA : If you’re a Sega fan, then the range of options simply aren’t as extensive as the Nintendo ones. Still, this Genesis (Mega Drive if you’re in the UK) console is a lovely piece of kit, so not all is lost. There are 80 games built into the console as standard, including the best Sonic titles, Mortal Kombats 1-3 and Altered Beast, and you can plug in an SD card to expand your collection even more. Just, um, make sure you do that via legal means. What’s best about this console, though, is that you can actually put your old Genesis carts in it and play the games on them. So, potentially, it’ll play ANY classic Sega game you can get your hands on.
Released in 2001, the Game Boy Advance (GBA) was touted as the natural successor to the Game Boy and the Game Boy Colour. It’s hard to believe that it was released after the Playstation 2, which we’ll take a closer look at in a minute. Selling over 80 million units in its lifetime, the Game Boy Advance was eventually succeeded by the Nintendo DS. The DS is backwards compatible with GBA titles and that may be another reason for the device’s enduring popularity. It’s also the only handheld video games console on the list.

The PlayStation 2 (PS2) is the best-selling console of all time, with a total of roughly 155 million units sold to date. When Sony first introduced itself with its CD-reading original PlayStation, it changed the video game industry forever, and it’s fair to say the PS2 would later define it: The PS2’s backward- compatibility with original PlayStation games, DVD playback and developer-friendly kits made it the most successful console in existence. Sony decided that its PS2 console was going to be an entertainment system, but not just for video games. DVDs were huge in the early 2000s, and PlayStation 2 brought to the foray a multimedia system that doubled as a DVD player. The data format allowed for bigger games, too, making humungous series that looked like cinematic masterpieces, including Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, God of War, Shadow of the Colossus and Grand Theft Auto III.
As good as Nintendo’s own SNES Classic is, it does limit you to the included 21 games. If you’re looking to breathe some life into your cartridge collection, the Analogue Super Nt will play them just as well as an original SNES and also make them look great on modern HDTVs. As you might expect, that does come at a bit of a premium price, but it is at least considerably more affordable than Analogue’s previous high-end take on the standard NES, and, as CNET notes in its review, clunky menus aside, there’s not much more you can ask for in an updated SNES.
Analogue’s Super NT and Mega SG hardware revives the Super NES and SEGA Genesis, respectively. Each one comes with fantastic, freshly-designed cases that are smaller and more appealing than the originals, while still being fully compatible with original game cartridges and controllers. And yeah, you can use those 30-year-old, dusty controllers all you want.but these clones also come with brand new wireless replicas from 8BitDo, which has already cemented its reputation as an excellent retro hardware supplier. And of course, each one will output your original games in glorious 1080p over an HDMI cable.
