My favourite is GameCube for its playfulness. Other greats are Dreamast and PlayStation 1. Xbox is cheesy in a strange way, but I still enjoy it. The best boot up screens are just plain starting the game, though - NES, SNES, N64, Master System, Mega Drive - these are the secret winners.
PlayStation and GameCube are currently taking the lead, as expected.
Thanks to @Shifty. and @sublimit for the kind words, I can guarantee that your support towards me is gonna be worth it
Thanks also to all the members who participated to this poll, and I got to say I’ve been surprised by the positive reception, it was my first attempt at making a thread and I didn’t expect that much replies.
Original Playstation brings on a rush of feels. Original Xbox 360 start up screen is a close second, that was a top tier generation as far as gaming for me personally, and that startup screen fired me up.
I cant vote for anything but the classic Neo Geo.
I never played the home console version, but I know if I did back in the day, my mind would've been screaming "ARCADE PERFECT!". That was a big deal back then.
Ok guys, it was a fun thread but there's only one correct answer whether you own one or not:
post 2nd gen CD-I boot up best boot screen period, nice thread OP I'll treat you to lunch.
EDit: In fact first/second gen CD-i is also good so I put it a close second. I'd put PSX second instead, but the PSX only works if you put the system and game bootscreens together, otherwise it's average at best, so it's third.
PSX is an odd one because the actual main bootup for the actual game system is the second one. The first boot is basically just an on switch boot, and when you play PSX games on anything not the original playstation it never appears.
That's why the PSX is weaker than people here say IMO, you need both boot screens for the full experience which most people will likely never see unless they decided to go buy a PSX off Ebay. Even most emulators skip boot 1 when a game is loaded.
