Video game consoles have come a long, long way from where they were before. What began as essentially a home arcade has transformed into a full-on entertainment unit. Anything you can think of, you could do on your Xbox One or PS4. Play games in 4K? Check. Watch Netflix? Check. Stream your gaming session on Twitch? Check. The possibilities are endless.

There’s no doubt the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have changed the meaning of what a gaming console can do. But before there were consoles that could stream TV, record gameplay and respond to voice commands, there were machines like the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis that changed the gaming world with their amazing libraries of games. These consoles were the pioneers of the modern gaming consoles you see today.

The thing is, while these consoles are a thing of the past, you could still purchase them and play games on them right now! Sure, it might cost you a pretty penny, but the nostalgia and fun are totally worth it. If you were born after the NES Era, you could buy one today or use an emulator to play the games, but that’s your choice. Either way, you can play any game from any console today if you have the patience, time and money required to do so. Whether you want to relive your favorite games or finally play on that console you always wanted as a kid, here are 10 retro gaming consoles you need in your collection.

  2. Nico' Town on September 12, 2019 at 7:48 pm

    I own the GameCube, N64, GBA, and snes classic



  3. Matthew Streets on September 12, 2019 at 7:48 pm

    This video is very interesting and thank you for sharing this footage. I collect Nintendo items. So far I got a Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Colour, 2 x Game Boy Advance SP’s, Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL: Majora’s Mask Edition. I also got the SNES, N64 and Wii (All PAL versions).

    O man how can u leave out psp from that list



  5. EO AtTheInternet on September 12, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    Problems I have with this video:
    1. Mario bros. 3 was made for the nes (unless you count super mario)
    2. ps1 was 32 bit, not 64 bit.
    3. What kind of person says you should get the GBA and doesn’t even mention the GBA sp?



  6. Cringe Lord on September 12, 2019 at 7:50 pm

    I was waiting for Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga when they mentioned the GBA



  7. Emergamer17 The Gaming Channel on September 12, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    How could you forget about the SNES console?????



  8. sparkrich playz on September 12, 2019 at 7:52 pm

    I have arcade game in my PS 2



  9. Sam Dixkson on September 12, 2019 at 7:53 pm

    1:36 SMB3 was released in the nes, ARE THESE GUYS RETARDED?



  10. Dìñ Ø on September 12, 2019 at 7:57 pm

    Yay I can play froger n stuff



  11. Basement Brothers on September 12, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    Really? Odyssey 2 is a must-have?



  12. Robin Dobson on September 12, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    I have never heard of the Atari 7800.



  13. Julio m on September 12, 2019 at 8:03 pm

    why is the snes so low on the list?



  14. Matt Grubb on September 12, 2019 at 8:03 pm

    You included the the game gear but not the PS1. The PS1 should be a staple for any retro game collection. I understand that it’s a great portable system, but the amount of great games in the PS1 library is enough I feel for it to be in at least the top 3 game consoles ever. I honestly don’t know what you were thinking. SMH

    *TRIGGERED*
    Warning rant ahead
    Also, where the fek is the NES? It’s like the only game console that deserves a guaranteed spot on any retro game console list. FEK YOUR GAME GEAR. FFS *face palm* Another thing, who gives a fek about an Odyssey 2 on a list where you didn’t even include a PS1 or NES? Just stating the obvious.



  15. Y2K Savior on September 12, 2019 at 8:04 pm

    Animal Crossing was on the N64 though



  16. Grant McGill on September 12, 2019 at 8:04 pm

    Magnavox odyssey is not good….



  17. kuit on September 12, 2019 at 8:05 pm

    Anyone else notice that at 1:58 while talking about the Atari 7800, they show a Sega Master System? Definitely not the same thing…



  18. Retro Collector on September 12, 2019 at 8:07 pm

    I have the NES SNES the Gameboy the Wii U 2 3ds XLS the Nintendo switch and the Atari 2600. I’m 13 and I’m a really big retro gaming fan I’ve been into it since I was in 4th grade and now I’m going into seventh.



  19. Wrecking Games on September 12, 2019 at 8:09 pm

    I technically have no consoles at all



  20. Potato HDZ on September 12, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    Wow I have all in different parts of fammily

    Jk just the Saturn nes and snes



  21. Ryan Jackson on September 12, 2019 at 8:14 pm

    Once again the Original Xbox the most powerful system in the 6th Generation gets slept on again. This happens when people don’t properly do their research. The Xbox had a ton of great games and exclusives on the system. Also any third party games that released on multiple Consoles looked and played better on the Xbox. Example: Burnout:Revenge is one for starters I could go all day. But too each their own.



  22. Joshua Humes on September 12, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    Dreamcast was amazing I love it and wish it had done better



  23. Anxious Neck Games on September 12, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    0:37 see, channels like yours are the reason we can’t have good things anymore. CGR got ripped off by so many channels and it took the fun out of it for Mark Bussler. . 🙁



  24. Jack 06 on September 12, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    The GameCube was more powerful than the ps4…



  25. RAP64 on September 12, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    WHERE THE FRIK IS THE NES AND N64 daammmmn somethings have been missed

    Smb3 was for the nes as well



  26. Khuz on September 12, 2019 at 8:21 pm

    im getting a nintendo gamecube so now ill have a switch ps3 gamecube



  27. Nuclear-Skull87 on September 12, 2019 at 8:21 pm

    I have been wanting to get a retrogaming-console for a while myself. I specifically am wanting to get an SNES, a Sega-Genesis and an original PSX. I would also like to get Sega Saturn or Neo-Geo.

    Good-Thing I did not get a Retron-Console, because while it is amazingly-convenient to have three oldschool 90s-consoles in-one I think there’s one-too-many fatal-flaws associated with it to make it a worthwhile-purchase.



  28. Rickandmorty Rulez1 on September 12, 2019 at 8:23 pm

    How about nes



  29. Vengador 69 on September 12, 2019 at 8:23 pm

    Where the heck is the Sega Genesis, Master System, and N64 for example?.



  30. creeps the thing on September 12, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    I NEVER KNEW THE SNES CONTROLLER HAD TEXT SAYING SUPER NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM! WOW!



  31. Luca From Wii Sports on September 12, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    mario 3 was on nes



  32. Burn4Freedom420 on September 12, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    You can emulate these games no problem save yourself some space !



  33. Snorlax Games on September 12, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    The gameboy advance sp is better



  34. T Bone on September 12, 2019 at 8:28 pm

    Plenty of errors in this vids



  35. GameBreaker64 on September 12, 2019 at 8:28 pm

    Why is the Odyssey 2 on this list? You don’t need to have it in you collection. It’s actually rather obscure if you really think about it



  36. hypnosion on September 12, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    super mario bros 3 in the snes *clap *clap



  37. Ben Dordoy on September 12, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    I have a super Nintendo and a PS2 in my collection I still pay games on both and occasionally I buy PS2 games even tho I have a Xbox 360 and Xbox one sometimes I just feel like playing a retro game



  38. Dìñ Ø on September 12, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    I’m godly at Cinnaped



  39. Gaming U Tv on September 12, 2019 at 8:34 pm

    03:19 the original playstation was 32 bits too



  40. Edwin X Sanchez on September 12, 2019 at 8:34 pm

    And the n64 and its famus clasic games includin golden eye and mario64 the n64 is a good clasic



  41. Benjamin Palmer on September 12, 2019 at 8:35 pm

    Saying the Dreamcast failed BECAUSE it was so tech advanced is hugely misleading.



  42. Robin Dobson on September 12, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    die hard n64 fan/collector



  43. Thechillgamer 88 on September 12, 2019 at 8:37 pm

    Retro fc is a gameboy clone that’s pretty good👍👌👌



  44. gramm on September 12, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    Him : n64 is not in the list
    Me: 👹

    He died



  45. Amos River Entertainment on September 12, 2019 at 8:41 pm

    come on, ya gotta sneak in a Fairchild Channel F into that list. I demand that you delete this, add that, and repost !!



  46. IlokanoWarrior on September 12, 2019 at 8:41 pm

    Playstation 1 was 64 Bit??? Not sure about that.



  47. r0b0m1r0 on September 12, 2019 at 8:41 pm

    This list NEEDS systems, the average consumer can actually find and WANT to play. Neo Geo…fun, but c’mon.



  48. mooboymoo on September 12, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    Super Nintendo didn’t have Mario 3, it had Super Mario World.



  49. TheTechOasis on September 12, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    ps1 or psx is 32bit not 64bit and the gamecube was way way way more powerful than a ps2



  50. Cory's Twin on September 12, 2019 at 8:45 pm

    PS2 isn’t a retro console. PS1 is.
