Sales - SNES.

Longevity - SNES, obviously.

Impact - Dreamcast. The SNES was less an innovator than it was just a polishing of previous good ideas.

Games - It's close, but the SNES. Just the sheer volume and variety clinch it here. Plus, Chrono Trigger.

That's right, I just voted against my favourite system of all time.

Like some people have said, the games are the major factor here. Graphically, the Super Nintendo took everything the NES did right and improved upon it. And they hold up very well. Right now I could pop in Super Mario World or A Link to the Past, and be both challenged and impressed.
