So heres the question.

Whats your favorite video game system?

My personal favorite would be the Gamecube!

I have been a die-hard nintendo fan ever since the Original NES came out and I am yet to find someone who makes a gaming system better then them.

By the way, I choose the Xbox. As the matter of fact.....Max is a Xbox live beta tester...so expect news from him later.

First off let me start by saying that I have never played any of them.


With that said, I would not choose the XBox, because I fail to see what I gain by buying that over a computer system with top video and sound cards.

The Playstation 2 is right up there, I finally got a Playstation a year/ year and a half ago and its pretty cool...

Dreamcast is no longer produced as Sega has gotten out of the console business and that is too bad.....


For a while the Genesis was the premier gaming system, and was one of my favorites.

I did purchase one along with three sports games for like 70 bucks. Good deal, but now I know they dont produce the games anymore....


But I would probably choose the GameCube mainly for history.


Nintendo has long been known as the leader in the gaming business both with consoles and games....

It doesnt hurt when Nintendo is the most kid friendly system and has been for a long time.....


I would choose Nintendo with Playstation a close second.

Everyone says that computer thing but honestly, just because it contains computer components doesn't mean it will run the same games. Also, an xbox costs $200, a computer with a top video card and sound card will cost you $1,000 and you know that within a few months there will be a better computer out.

So far i'm very happy with the xbox, the games are great and I can't wait to play online (hopefully I can save up some money to buy the kit).

If I actually get it i'll let everyone know how it is, otherwise i'll just have to wait until November to buy it when it really comes out.

a top quality sound and video card you can get for close to$500 if not less...


the sound cards do not 'necessarily' need to be updated all that often.....


my sound card is still a very good quality one and is over two years old...


i still contend that with my PC i can do everything that I can do on XBox...



maybe not play the same games right away.....but so be it.....



i guess for me I am biased....


Since the games I like are sports games and strategy/simulation games.....



Those action games are not my favorite.....

For strategy and simulation a PC is the way to go, for sports, any system nowadays will do considering that the sports games come out on all 3.

For me, I love playing online games, especially first person shooters and sports games, so the xbox was the first choice on my list.

i agree.....



its more difficult to use a pc for action games and shooting games for various reasons.....



but the thing with a gaming system is that unless you can afford them all, it will come down to personal preference.....

Exactly, I love playing action games on PC but there is just no way I can keep up with the technology, all I can play now are games that came out when my computer was top of the line, everything else won't work.

I agree with you though, it all depends on what types of games you like most.

I know it's old, trust me, I had 64 MB of Ram before I found a stick of 128 at a special at Office Depot. I just can't afford anything new for now.

memory is dirt cheap these days....



I got 512 mb of memory for I think 60 bucks or something very close to that....



i doubt memory has gone up.....



the rest is still sky high for top gear....but memory is a good buy...

Well, I think this computers motherboard can only handle up to 256, so that's out of the question :)

PS2 is the best, XBOX is a close, and GC is close to that....
