This started because I was talking about the strengths and faults of each system, you apparantly didn't like that I said that the GC is primarily a single player system and claimed I was biased for it.
Seeing as you seemed to take offense to ONLY my negative statement against the GC rather then against the PS2 or the Xbox and attacked me for it, which is a signature of a fanboy,I could only assume you were one.
christ... everyone needs to cool down here.everyone seems to take opinions like they're facts and then stating their opinions like they are facts. calm the hell down! i say if you dont use that console much, then sell it. so if you're using the xbox and gc, sell the ps2. simple as.
theres clearly a nintendo versus everyone else thing going on too. i dont really think you can compare them though. the ps2 and xbox, yes. they have many games out for both formats. but the gc is a different kettle of fish. the appealing thing for me about the gamecube is the mario titles, but i lost interest in these when they went 3d, although the mario kart double dash game was fun. i think banjoe kazooie was too similar to mario64, but thats just the perspective i get from seeing people play it, along with the donkey kong games. zelda games, i have been led to beleive, are always entertaining and enthralling. not only does my 10yr old nephew love it, so does my mate, his girlfriend, many of my other mates, and several older generations i know including a 60 yr old.
alpha, i completely agree with you about realism. i dont play games that are realistic, unless i'm looking at a simulation game. gran turismo was'nt realistic. theres no damage for a start. i think sometimes realism is good because for myself, i like to put myself into the game, immerse myself if you might. i mean, gta would have been terrible if bowser had suddenly appeared the size of a sky scraper and you had to to beat him to save the princess.(although thinking about it... imagine iif it was godzilla or king kong? that actually mite be good as another game...) excuse the tangent.
when i play games i like to escape from real life. no game is truly realistic, realistic games like, driving and sports, are only really realistic if you're a professional sportsperson in that sport. i play nba live because i'd like to beleive that i can win the championship, not because its "realistic".
Why are people whoring themselves to the 360? Did you even look at the games that are coming out? If i started naming all of them that i was just a little interested in, then i'd name about 20 or more games.
And what does the Ps3 have? They have some of the games the 360, but not much. They have MGS, but i don't like that game. The only games i would get for the Ps3 is God of War 2 because the first one was great as hell, but thats not even confirmed yet. And the other game is the next GTA. So tell me what reason exactly should i get a Ps3? And i used to like the Ps2 the best, actully, i do like the Ps2 over the Xbox, but the next gen is totally different.
And as for the revolution, i dont like the controller, there is no games i want to play on it, Mario is great and stuff, but i dont mind if i dont get to play it, because i dont play video games a whole lot anyway. The conroller might be pretty cool, but i don't like the way it is, and im not gonna buy a revolution for the controller.
Nope. I played the second one. It was okay, but nothing to drool over.
That's exactly what I said earlier.
Yeah, I agree with you, except the Revolution.
I think its games are going to be so totally different, the Revolution will be worth getting as a secondary system to the 360. (I'll be jamming out playing Halo 3, then want to take a break, so I pop in an FPS into the Revolution and voila! I've got my character in one hand and a gun in the other. )
