ok, i am sooooo sick of all these console wars. Honestly, everyone has their own opinion so it doesnt matter what anyone else thinks. get the console you like and you think is the best. do not bash other consoles just because you dont have it. now, on to the main reason of the post:
i think every console rocks. seriously. they each also have their downside.
first off, XBOX. ah, the big M$. this console is very good and has very nice graphics. you also get a very good deal in that microsoft loses (i think) over $100 dollars for each xbox sold. in addition, i think microsoft has lost a LOT of money on the xbox. nothing they cant swallow, but its a lot. naturally, they wouldnt want to keep losing money on the next iterations of it. which would lead to the conclusion that xbox2 will be expensive or wont be as awesome as some might believe. also, i dont like the idea of xbox2 being able to do other things. just let me play my games hehe. but i love xbox and its games. it has the best shooters (i love shooting things) and action games. and I LOVE HALO LIKE NO OTHER!!! it is a blast to play, not because it breaks any new ground, but because it is SOOOO balanced (i love the sniper pistol).
next, gamecube. ah, the big N. i like this console because it is simple and plain. it does what i want it to which is play games. its also great for budgets. HOWEVER, it is severely lacking in the third party games. their first and second party games are GREAT but they really could use some help. also, the whole color scheme just really puts me off. but i think gamecube has the best party games. it is awesome for playing w/ 4 players. and i think nintendo has the most innovative games (NOT NECESSARILY THE BEST). and i loved metroid prime although all the backtracking got tedious. and i like super smash cause its so simple yet complex.
lastly, ps2. i honestly dont have much experience with this one. i think its awesome tho because they have such a wide variety of games. i dont care that they have 50 million games, im only gonna but a couple. but they have games for everyone. unfortunately, its not so great for parties (need multitap + 4player game). and its main games (GTA3 and MGS2) dont really appeal to me. however, there are plenty of other games for ps2 that really do appeal to me. overall, i think ps2 has the best marketing strategy as well. they came up with the greatest hits (or platinum for xbox and whatever for gc). they are on the right track.
now i have a gamecube and i dont regret getting it. i also plan to get an xbox or ps2 later if the price drops (not sure which to get tho). the reason i got the gamecube was it was the cheapest, and i was on a budget. also, i got turned off by xbox cause a lot of the games seemed like pc games, but now i dont think so.
so whats the point? get whichever console you want. just make sure to do research on it to make sure it really is the one for you. research research research. dont worry about the hardware. worry about what games you want and are coming out.
btw, i had no problems with the xbox controller (the large one). also, the gamecube controller is actually larger than the ps2 controller so dont complain about its small size.
i think nintendo has the most innovative games(NOT NECCESARILY THE BEST)
what are you on crack nintendo makes the BEST games. LIKe what i always say about games, if it aint nintendo its not good quality
and what you said about the gc not having good 3 party support ...........WHO gives a sh*t, when nintendo has the BEST ist pary games who want to buy 3 party (oh yay you f*got xboxers who dont have any good gamee)
i know im been harsh on you but its the truth, you shoud not feel offended youre a cueb owner now go buy zelda!!!!!
OK, IM GOING TO BUY IT RIGHT NOW:lol: yes a good nintendo patriot u are, back. thats good, i am too;) yes we dont need third party,we dont need all the crap gameon every system. WE GOT THE BEST GAMES ALLREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:rock:
I'm with back, but ZELDA SUCKS!
DUDE YOUR CRAZY, zelda ROCKS.
Ok, so Ocarina of Time was fun and Majora's Mask was ok, but WIND WAKER SUCKS! (Yes, I have played it.)
how far did ya get?
i don't know about this place...how can you trust the opinion of someone who can't even get the 4 shoulder buttons right (see other post with similar title). i'd rather have an L2 and R2 shoulder button that i can use with my free fingers than some mal-placed white and black button.
the GC and PS2 rock. Anything on the Xbox is either going to be on those 2 or, it seems, is just not worth getting; there's another game out there in the same genre that's way better. example:
tao feng XBOX: virtua fighter 4 ps2 OR mk:da for all three splinter cell xbox: mgs2 ps2, syphon filter: omega strain ps2 fuzion frenzy xbox: mario party 4 gc
well, except for Halo (i'll take ZOE: The 2nd Runner as a good substitute), theres no game or any real REASON to pick up a 'box. i don't give a crap if it can store mp3's or whatever, i'll just turn down the music on the game and hit my cd changer. PS2 has RPG's that NONE of the others have (xenosaga, dark cloud 2, final fantasy anything), GC has the most rockin original games in genres outside of the norm (Animal Crossing), plus it kicks major ass for getting drunk and playing with friends.
the xbox has, what, 3d shooters? because those aren't a dime a dozen? medal of honor series is on ps2, good enough for me. Contra: Shattered Solider isn't on Xbox. Neither is Amplitude, Animal Crossing, Final Fantasy, Metroid, ZOE, Def Jam, the new Gradius V, the new TMNT 3D fighter, Dynasty Warriors, GTA, Gran Turismo, the new Castlevania, anything Mario, Guilty Gear X2, Primal, Resident Evil, etc.
And what does the Xbox have? Halo?
Give me a damn break.
ok, ok, ps has some great games, my bro has one and it aint that bad, my opinion still stands that zelda games are awesome! here my rating gamecube 9/10 ps2 8/10 xbox -3/10 i apologize to cloud guy for not respecting him, your opinoin is important too.
so much love flowing now.
