Graphics, User Interfaces It's been one of my major pet peeves on both Android and iOS: the total and utter lack of consistency. Applications - whether first party or third party - all seem to live on islands, doing their own thing, making their own design choices regarding basic UI interactions, developing their own non-standard buttons and controls. Consistency died five years ago, and nobody seems to care but me.

Thom, the MegaCD had a non-game BIOS you could boot to if there were no disc in the drive. You could use it to set the clock and play audio CDs.

I can't think of a non-CD games console with a 'BIOS' though, that seems to be the start of it all.
