Huh, I really liked the name Saturn. I probably would have put it on the list in place of Playstation 4.
Also can't say I agree with putting the Virtual Boy on there. I think that name fit perfectly at the time given the amount of hype there was around virtual reality and of course the Gameboy. I probably would have put the XBOX 360 in its place. I still don't understand where that name came from or what it is supposed to mean.
But they're interesting lists nonetheless.
I'd bump Dreamcast off the worst list in place of Xbox. The Gamecube had a cute, Nintendo-like name. Xbox sounds like what a team of '90s executives spouting off buzzwords would come up with. It's the Poochy of video game console names. They've only gotten worse with each iteration.
Also, I never realized how creepy the name Virtual Boy sounded until you mentioned it. I used to like the name, now I feel dirty...
Xbox One is a rather pitiful smear on Xbox First's image, despite the turnaround I still think Xbox One is a stained moniker.
Dreamcast felt like home, because such untapped potential was considered harmony.
Putting Genesis at number 1 is something I 100% agree with. The 2600 on the other hand, yuck. I wouldn't put that on the best list at all. If you like 2600, why not toss 5200 and 7800 in there too since they are all a series of four numbers? Perhaps it's hard to separate the nostalgia from the name, 2600.
Not sure about the Vectrex being on that list either; that name is just too odd. Neo Geo Pocket, on the other hand, should have probably been on there. You know instantly it's a portable system with the term "pocket." Also, the Jaguar is a pretty badass name.
As far as the worst list, I 100% disagree with Dreamcast being a bad name. I always thought it sounded awesome. I never thought Virtual Boy was a bad name, either. I agree with WiiU and Xbox One being among the worst. Nintendo DS is another one worth mentioning.
My personal favorites...? Sega Genesis is great, but here in Europe we call it Sega Mega Drive... I like Atari Jaguar, Neo Geo and the assonancing "Coleco ColecoVision". I agree with Turbografx-16 en Fairchild Channel F being terrible names too. (Tiger Game.com is pretty bad too).
