Games That You Bought A Console For

I bought the PS2 for 4 franchises: Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, and the WWF Smackdown series.
MGS got less good in my opinion. RE4 (while being a great game) was a horrible Resi game. FF10 was atrocious in everything but the graphics department. I basically bought the thing for the Smackdown games at the time.
When the next generation came around, I heard the Smackdown series went multiplat, so I switched console and went for the 360,
I never looked back.
THEN, MGS4 was released. I buckled and bought the PS3. Biggest mistake I've ever made (shadow moses and the ending redeemed it somewhat). I spend 560 euros to play 1 disappointing game.
PS4 is just not gonna happen for me, not again. Despite the rpg's lacking on the X1. The pain is still too deep.

I didn't know it at the time, but I bought a Sega Saturn for Panzer Dragoon Saga.

I buy any Nintendo console for their first party of course, no other company gives me those pure joy games like Nintendo.
I got all the PS consoles for RPGs. Lunar Silver Star Story Complete is what made me get a PS1. I saw the ad for the game in an EGM when I was on summer vacation in Germany and Italy, I was up in the Alps id look out imagining the game world in front of me. I really wanted the game and wasn't disappointed when I got it, sadly it was stolen awhile back but still got the hardcover instruction booklet and cloth map.

Here are the ones I can remember. When I was a young kid I didn't really get to choose what consoles I was bought, although I remember pushing really hard for a SEGA Saturn.
SEGA Saturn (I traded in my Playstation for this... it was probably a mistake. My brother thankfully got one for his birthday later.): Sonic Jam / Sonic R.
Dreamcast: Sonic Adventure
Gamecube: Super Smash Bros Melee
Wii: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
DS: Super Mario 64 DS
3DS : Super Mario 3D Land
PS3: Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction
Wii U: New Super Mario Bros. U & Nintendo Land (but Wonderful 101 & Rayman Legends had been announced)
PS4: Infamous: Second Son, Infamous: First Light & Knack (but Uncharted 4 had been announced)
You can probably tell from this list that I like platformers a lot.

Let's see, I always bought Nintendo systems for their exclusives, Mario, Zelda, Kirby etc. The 1st one I bought myself was the Gamecube, day 1 and continued that trend with the Wii and Wii U (probably not NX though, unless a launch title really screams at me but i used to be a Nintendo fanboy) , GB, GBA, DS, SNES and N64 were presents.
In order of purchase:
The Xbox I bought for Halo and KotoR
PS2 for God of War
The Xbox 360 I got for Saints Row
in 2011 I got the PS3 for Hyperdimension Neptunia and knowing that it will get more JRPGs in the future.
Last year I bought the PS4 for Omega Quintet, and knowing etc. The console also came with a free copy of The Order, meh.
A few months later I bought an XB1 but only because of a Gamerscore promotion from Xbox Germany that gave me a 100€ discount, but knowing Halo 5 was close I took the chance, my 1st game was Sunset Overdrive though, good but not worth to buy a console for.
Non Nintendo Handheld wise, I bought a PSP for Crisis Core and the Vita for Tales of Hearts R and Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus.

I usually don't buy consoles due to any one specific game. Now I just buy them all. But I remember very vividly trying the Demo1 disc that came with the PlayStation at launch at a friends and it had a playable demo of Destruction Derby and a trailer for the original Tekken. The very next day I took all my savings and went to the store and bought a PlayStation, Tekken, Destruction Derby, extra controller and memory card. WORTH IT!
Also I eventually bought the PS2 specifically to play Gran Turismo 4.

Before I got a PC to handle gaming (and before most games were ported to the PC), I used to just always get consoles. But now, I am going to get my first current gen console (minus my Wii U) specifically for 4 upcoming games (which come out in the following chronological order): Final Fantasy XV, The Last Guardian, Persona 5, and Kingdom Hearts 3 (whenever the heck that comes out). Even if those are the only 4 games I play on that console.... I will have no regrets.
