Really? You're gonna say Goldeneye was the most influential game of all time?
I think thought said it best: Doom was a cultural icon on the PC platform. Quake and even Half-Life have had greater influences.
As for system, I'll say N64.
Why? They have a collection of amazing games (Mario 64, MarioKart 64, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, NHL 99, Donkey Kong 64, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina or Time).
The other big thing, they made multi-player gaming easy. 4 players in one room with 4 controllers. It was the perfect party system.
PS2 is a close second, just simply because it had an amazing game library that I still play to this day.
