I hated 'Vita' when the name was confirmed but I don't know, I kinda grew on it after a while.

Doesn't sound as bad if you exclude 'PlayStation' from it.

I hated every single thing that came out of the Wii (Wii would like to play, Wiimotes, Wii-ner) back in 2006.

I hated it, but now I laugh.

I do think TurboGrafx-16 is a completely dumb name however.

The only thing i could say i hated was the Wii, even though i own one.

I hate that you HAD to use the motion controls. Never did finish skyward sword because of this


Also going against everyone here:
I love my vita. Never had a PSP so i can play the games i missed (as long as they are the store), ps1 games, free games each month via Plus, catch up on popular JRPG on ps2 (Persona 4 golden).

Other then that i love video games so i play everything and have everything from the last two gens

No one said anything about hating Vita itself. I love my Vita.

But I hate the name.

Best:
Master System - The master of systems? The system for masters? Hell yeah.
PC Engine - Aw man, this ain't just a console. This thing's an ENGINE. A PC ENGINE.
Mega Drive - Similarly to PC Engine, anything that sounds like the name of a car feature is awesome.
PlayStation Vita - You can't make up this kind of irony.

Worst:
Xbox - BRUH LET'S POP SOME DEW AND WATCH SOME X-TREME MOTOCROSS WHILE WE PLAY ON MY XBOX
TurboGrafx-16 - wow um sure those 16 bit grafx sure are turbo... yeah...
GameCube - Nothing says fun like cubes amirite
Virtual Boy - Sounds like the name of a Tamagotchi ripoff.
