'Blockbusta' My Ass: Which Systems Hold The Most Ground in Plamotaku's Top 100?

Today all we hear about are AAA games or "blockbusters". It's like Hollywood wants to invade video games.



Anyways, I thought it would be interesting to see which systems/consoles own the most games within my top 100 list. The list changes constantly- currently I have 14 systems on this list eying to have the most "top 100 blockbusters" in video game history. Here's the list:

#1- PC (15 titles, top earning The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)
#2- Playstation (14 titles, top earning Castlevania; Symphony of the Night)
#3- Nintendo Entertainment System (12 titles, top earning Super Mario Bros 3)
#4- Playstation 2 (10 titles, top earning Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3)
#4- Super Nintendo (10 titles, top earning Zelda A Link to the Past)
#5- Nintendo 64 (9 titles, top earning Zelda Ocarina of Time)
#6- Sega Genesis (8 titles, top earning  Sonic the Hedgehog 2)
#6- Playstation 3 (8 totles, top earning Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots)
#7- Gamecube (4 titles, top earning Zelda Wind Waker)
#7- Wii (4 titles, top earning Super Mario Galaxy)
#8 Atari 2600 (2 titles, top earning Space Invaders)
#8 Gameboy (2 titles, top earning Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow)
#9 Gameboy Advance (1 title, top earning Sonic Advance)
#9 Turbografix 16 (1 title, top earning Blazing Lasers)

At first glance it seems like the Turbo16 may lose its trophy. Very unlikely: Blazing Lasers is in my top 10. It'll be interesting to see how this list changes as I add more games.If we look at games 90-100 in the list, there's a good chance those games may get pushed out of the list. The PS1 risks losing 3 spots, the Genesis 1, The PS2 1, The SNES 1, PC 1, Atari 2600 1, and the Nintendo 64 1. Again, it will be interesting to see where the list goes.
