Lists are fun, so here's what I've decided to do: I've decided to list every console I've ever owned and then write my three favourite games for every single one of them. This list is super personal, it's about as far from definitive as you could possibly go. It's not about what games have aged well, it's purely about the games I enjoyed most in that moment, according to my fragile memory.
Please enjoy! And if you want to create your own list, drop them in the comments below.
Note: I left the Wii U, Xbox One and PS4 out because it's just too early to make any real judgements.
