Podcast 12: Best Ever Console Round 1

It begins. The already legendary 101 Video Games Best Ever Console Contest! Or Competition! Or Thing! To be honest we’ve not properly agreed on a title.

Anyway, listen as Lewis and Ian discuss, debate, argue, call each other names and play rock paper scissors stone through 12 rounds of red-hot console on console action. And if you think that sounds dirty and disgusting you should have been at the recording.


Lewis and Ian's debate over whether the Amstrad 6128k is better than the PS2 becomes heated.

WARNING – We do swear a bit in this podcast. The debates we had became very passionate and strident and we sadly couldn’t stop our language occasionally reflecting that. Plus we drunk quite a bit of beer and got a bit silly. Sorry.

We want to hear your thoughts (please let us know you listen and you like us, pleeeeease). Do you violently disagree with any of our judgements? If so, really? Violently? Just calm down, it’s only video games. But do tell us, we’d love to hear from you! As always the best comment wins a 101 Video Games pencil.*

* N.B. Still no pencils available.

Podcast 11: Best Ever Console Prologue

Ah childhood. Scrumping for apples. Jumpers for goalposts. Pooh sticks. Quarter pound of penny sweets. Scraped knees and muddy faces. And of course, a time call your friend a d*ckhead because they happen to have a different console to you, to draw a picture of Sonic stabbing Mario through the heart and send it to Mean Machines and spend hours arguing that the Mega drive is definitely better than the SNES as in the Mega Drive Aladdin you get to use the sword but on SNES you can only throw apples I mean how rubbish is that?


Sonic and Mario exchange words. We spent ages looking for a proper old school picture of Sonic beheading Mario, but couldn't find one.


It’s the 101 Video Games That Made My Life Slightly Better Podcast! Lewis and Ian relive their school days by remembering all those pointless arguments about which is the better console. And what better way to do that than in an extremely pointless podcast?

Podcast 11 Best Ever Console Prologue

This Podcast also serves a prelude or prologue to a mini ‘season’ of podcast where we decide once and for all which is the Best Ever Console. Despite what we said earlier about those discussions being pointless. Yes.

So join us next week for Round 1 of the Best Ever Console Contest!

While you’re waiting, why not send us a picture you have drawn of the mascot of your favourite console weeing of the dead and bloodied body of a mascot from a rival video game system? The best will be printed on the website and receive a ‘101 Video Games’ Pencil!*

*Pencil not available.
