12. Sony PlayStation 2 2000

By supporting games, CDs, and those new-fangled “DVDs” kids were talking about, the PlayStation 2 cemented its position as a multimedia hub for any home. The console became a platform for any developer striving to prove itself as Sony had, and the PS2 catalogue of games remains one of the strongest ever produced.
