1. SNES
2. GBA
3. NES

Maybe NES is just there because of nostalgia, but for me, some of the best soundtracks ever came from this era. They did so much with just five tracks to work with! And I pretty much stopped qualifying as a gamer after Super Nintendo. Games became too expensive and I found other forms of enjoyment.

I didn't see anyone ask about consoles. PC is a system.

Very close toss up between SNES and PS1 for me.

I was very very very close to voting SNES because, holy shit, the back catalog of games for that system probably has the highest ratio of amazing to shitty games, it also contains several of my top games, if I were ever to make a list, these would all be on it:

Super Mario World (probably the greatest game of all time, absolute perfection)
Super Metroid.
Castlevania 4.
Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Super Street Fighter II Turbo.
Super Bomberman.
F-Zero.
Super Mario Kart.
I'm probably forgetting a few, in fact, I know I am, but my point is made.

However, the PS1 won out for me in the end, there are just too many games on there that I hold fantastic memories of, and genuinely are great games, not just nostalgia. No particular order, but the order they come back to my memory, but these are my favourite PS1 games.

Metal Gear Solid
Final Fantasy VII + VIII
Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain
Suikoden I + II (especially II, holy fuck)
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
Breath of Fire III
Fighting Force
Tekken (1, 2, and especially 3)
Worms
Broken Sword I and II (Not sure if these count, as they were likely PC ports?)
Twisted Metal
Syphon Filter
Crash (mother fucking) Bandicoot. Especially Warped.
Rayman
Fantastic era of gaming the early to late 90's.

PC is not a console.Who said it had to be a console? A PC can be a game system as well.

2. Gameboy Advance
3. Super Nintendo

Runner ups include the Playstation, Dreamcast, N64 and the Gamecube.

I don't play video games, but I'm surprised about the amount of people not saying Xbox.

Also, I don't know why but my message looks purple to me. I must have done something wrong :)

My favourite games are Need for speed and call of duty 4 because these are different from other games.
You're saying that a game where your have a third-person view of a car while you drive it really fast is different from other games?

And a game in a first-person view of a soldier that shoots at things is also different from other games?

Truth ^

Though I feel Killzone gets a definite pass from the other modern FPS games, because for one it has a half decent story, a good campaign mode (not a tagged on campaign mode for essentially a completely multiplayer focused game) and it doesn't have a new iteration every 10 minutes.
I mean don't get me wrong, it's not Half Life, but it's fucking head and shoulders above CoD or MoH or Battlefield.

You're right. Fuck Cylons.

Double truth ^

But I'm not exactly complaining. I'll play the fuck out of an FPS. I don't really care what it is. To say that one is "different" from another in its genre, though, is a stretch.
