It'd be near the bottom but above Switch and original Wii so I guess like this guy's list but with PS4 and PS2 closer to the top.

Hmm, this is tough because the virtual console is a huge advantage the Wii U and 3DS have over some of the older consoles...being able to play new and old games is a huge plus for me. I’m just gonna name my top 5 I guess:

1) N64: purely for nostalgia, this had some of my favorite games of all time. The console I grew up with.
2) Wii U: great first party games and the ability to play NES, SNES, N64, GBA, DS and Wii games.
3) 3DS: same reasons basically as the Wii U. Great VC service in which you can play NES, SNES, GB, GBC games, and is backwards compatible with DS games.
4) Xbox One: not a stellar first party lineup, but the ability to play most of the big Xbox and Xbox 360 games as a bonus pushes it over the previous Xbox consoles in my eyes.
5) PS4: I sold my PS4, but in the year that I owned it I played the crap out of the exclusives it has. And it definitely has some great ones. Unfortunately it has no backwards compatibility and I play multiplats on Xbox as I just like it more than PS4. So once I was done with the exclusives I sold it. Still a great console though.

I also own or have owned a NES (and NES mini), SNES mini, Sega Genesis, GCN, GBA SP, Wii, DS Lite, PSOne, PS2, Xbox and X360...but the newer consoles being able to play those old games plus new ones just puts them over the top for me. The exception is the N64 though simply because of all the fond memories I have for it. Now if we’re going purely off of what games are available for a specific console, my top five would probably look pretty different.
Upcoming: Gears 5, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Luigi's Mansion 3, Doom Eternal, Animal Crossing: New Horizons

It's pretty high on the list for me. It's my only HD system so far, and I have had tonnes of fun playing it.
Now playing: Scurge: Hive (DS), Prince of Persia Warrior Within (GameCube), Final Fantasy V (GBA)

Really hard to make a fair ranking as all systems have their own strengths and weaknesses, but it's easily one of my favorite gaming systems along with Dreamcast, N64, Amiga 500, Game Boy and GBA
was Dreamcast a PlayStation?
