Obviously, the hardware category is easy – none of these great consoles can compete with a platform that has been around for most of gaming history. Between PC accessibility, modding, and sheer diversity , it must get your vote. Don’t let me pressure you, but I’ll think less of you for choosing something else.

As for the category of games, it’s a bit trickier. There are so many amazing games out there, so a list of 20 is naturally going to miss out on a lot of classics. As a strategy nerd, my heart breaks over the lack of Civilization, Master of Orion, Crusader Kings, and Warcraft. In the absence of these captions, does anything tickle you?

Voting has started now, and you will have up to 3 p.m. PST / 6 p.m. EST / 11 p.m. GMT on Friday, November 12 to make your choices. The winners will be announced on November 23.
