    When I was a kid,I remember the main rivalry video-games was between Nintendo and Sega.These two companies and their gaming parallel gaming consoles dominated the market and children around my age often sided with one or the other fanatically supporting Mario or Sonic and the consoles and games available to each company.This rivalry went on for years until the more advanced consoles like Sony Playstation initially caused a decline to Nintendo and led Sega to its slow collapse and change to a game developing company only.

    Back then when I was a kid I remember having an immitation of the NES(although I could play normal NES with it)and my friend Michael had a Sega Master System I.And a lot of games.I remember going to his house almost every day during summer playing Alex Kidd,Rampage,Shinobi,Double Dragon and many many other games.

    Then Gameboy came out and everyone loved it.I had a Gameboy,my friends had Gameboys I only saw one Game Gear(meaning saw just one guy having one)in my life.

    Then me and my friend Michael moved on to SNES.Those were the days.Literally those were the days.I was round 14...going to high school playing Donkey Kong,then I saw in a local gaming TV program(Sevi wouldn't know it anyway,it was a show from Thessaloniki :p)a presenation of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.And I bought it.And I loved it.And I spent hours playing it.

    But I don't want to get off-topic so the question remains:

    Nintendo or Sega?For all of you who grew up in the late 80s early 90s this is a good question I think.

    Nintendo because of Smash Bros. and Picmin.

    Without those games, nintendo is nothing.

    Nintendo! Although major "respect points" are demanded for Sega, as they did make Skies of Arcadia, which was amazing.

    I was a SEGA guy, but I think in the beginning they really had it equal up to the megadrive vs. the supernes, but after the megadrive it went downwards for SEGA, with the add-ons and the dreamcast.
    So Nintendo won in the end, but I still voted for SEGA, they still make very good games, but now I have a Wii and changed into a nintendo guy lol. (though I love my PS3 more!)

    i've never a game system, which might explain why i don't have any childhood bond with a system.

    From mooching of friends though, i'll vote for option 3- microsoft.

    Sega Genesis = greatest system of the pre-play station era.

    Agreed on that. And why I vote Nintendo is only b/c of the success it's having now. Too bad Sega fell apart in PS era and beyond. :(

    Nintendo. I grew up with SNES and GameBoy - couldn't ever imagine a life without Nintendo. I wouldn't be a gamer without Nintendo! :O

    Only time I preferred nintendo was in primal rage since you could actually do all of every character's moves with the nintendo version, whereas the sega version they all had one you couldn't use
