Honorable Mention: Vectrex. 


Always wanted to own, or at least see, one of these things.

Honorable Mention: Vectrex. The arcade systems at the time relied mostly on vector graphics hardware, but the early game systems plugged in to traditional televisions. This presented the biggest visual difference between the arcade and the home console. Smooth angles and curves were so much nicer than even today's anti-aliased content. Granted, the technology is cumbersome and not really compatible with modern ideas of graphics, but still the system turned a LOT of heads and was a powerful influence on the industry at the time. The Vectrex gave arcade-quality graphics to the home user, and many people took notice.
