  1. The people at triple jump tried to rate every console made everywhere in the world, of all time I know I like 92 rankings. the title for the worst console went to the dedicated system which only played one game which describes everything except the Odyssey 1 at the time of the Odyssey 1. I personally think I have good judgment on video games because no video game in that list was current generation when I first got it until we got to number 38 I believe, the Sega 32x. Before we got to number 38, there were four consoles did I happen to pick up at thrift stores before Macklemore hit the charts (my candidate for the BC and AD of video game thrift shopping eras). These four systems ranked below the 32x and Triple Jump admits that they used mostly system sales figures, game library quantity, game sales, metacritic charts (which was weird because they didn't have metacritic until like either of Dreamcast or PlayStation 2 so how would older games qualify for a metacritic high score?), and historic milestones. Those 4 systems were, in alphabetical order, by the name of the company, Atari Jaguar, Bally Astrocade, Emerson Arcadia 2001, and the Xavix. Let's just say, the Bally got the worst of the 4. 4. But that pull didn't factor in something that many Bally players known. (Has this guy never seen a Bally Fitness commercial? I'd say yes, because he wants to pronounce it "Bolly", like the Indian movie making capital.). There was fans and enthusiasts and programmers who were (and even still now) writing and buying new programs with Bally Basic, (and even better versions of Bally programming software) by selling them as almost a cottage industry of new games, passing tapes to each other. Plus I think this is the lowest ranked system that has a fan URL dedicated to system, as the name BallyAlley.com was bought by this group. If you did not voluntarily purchased any of these previous games that were listed before Bally back when they were considered new, then you have good taste in video games. I dare you to find a system with a worse ranking on that triple jump list than astrocade that has a fan URL. even some of the ones that are better ranking don't have a specific fan URL. they did not figure in the afterlife of these systems and probably Baliy has one of the best afterlives of a system. Obviously if they did factor in cottage industry games then the Bally would have ranked higher. It takes a special kind of person to be a Bally owner at the time when I was out. I think it got released before I was born and I got a ColecoVision when I was 7, pretty close when it first came out, so I admit I was not a Bally person back in the day. But I was aware that Cap'n Video was renting Astrocade as well as 2600 intellivision, and Odyssey 2 games as well as VHS, Beta, LaserDisc and Selectavision movies. We went there for Beta movies. But I didn't rent anything there gamewise because I was a Coleco guy. That was when Atari was starting to sue people for renting games. By the way, BallyAlley.com referred to this atariage sub-form as one of two official Bally Alley continuations of their old forum. The other one seems to be on groups.io email list. I currently receive the emails but can't find how to post.
