A polite, civilized, console likes/dislikes thread.

Post  gaiages on Thu Oct 30, 2008 1:32 pm

So... talk about consoles/portables/others here. Which do you like the most? The least? Pros and Cons? Who's winning the console war? Whatever. Just...

  • Be polite.
  • Be civilized.
  • Don't flame.
  • Don't be a dumbass.


Well, have fun.

This is a fairly nintendo biased board, so i guess i can get away with supporting Wii/DS 08!!

I'll try to get over my GO NINTENDO DESTROY ALL OF THEM bais. Monetarily, Nintendo is "winning," but they're starting to alienate their traditional fanbase. The Wii is also suffering from a hell of a lot of crappy shovelware right now. The 360 is doing very well, but there's not much variation in the types of games it hosts. And the PS3....Is not doing so hot. Very Happy And I'm so happy.

I actually caved recently and bought a 360, mostly because of nintendos abandoning the dedicated fanbase, also for kingdom hearts/final fantasy, since i really like my ps2 but did not want a ps3.

I'm seriously considering getting a 360, if only for the Gears games.

I like the PS3. It's got everything it needs to be great... except games.

Now I know what you're saying. But Pure, you amazing stud of a man, that's the whole point of a console!
And to you I say: Yes. Yes, it is.

I'm over arguing which console is better. i just play whatever is fun. However, i will always be a Nintendo fan at heart, unless they go all kiddie.

pure_awesome: Your post put a grin rom ear to ear on my face.

smashbro: Agreed. I've been pretty confident with the Big N, but E3 2008 kinda worried me. Wii owners have a pretty killer lineup going into 2009 though.

I'm not biased, but due to my limited funds, I had to choose console current gen console over the other, and I had to pick the 360. The PS3's WAY too expensive for someone like me, and with only TWO exclusive games I'm missing out on that I'd like, it was a horrible choice. As for the Wii... I like a good amount of the games on it, but... being the huge RPG fan I am, it didn't really have to many games to keep my interest. Also, my soon-to-be roomate owns one, so it'll be a while before I buy one. xp

But, I'm proud to say I own a PS2 and Gamecube. x3

Oh, and I LOVE my DS. So many good games out, and so many more coming... There's some games I want for the PSP, but not nearly as many as the DS, in my opinion.

The DS, overall, probably is the strongest of ny game system right now. Huge variety of quality games in all genres.

No need, we can probably just talk about it here.

The DSi looks like the video game iphone.

I think it applies, but your the moderator smashbro, its up to you. That is kind of a narrow subject for a thread though, especially considering how little is known about it right now.

I loves 'em all. Well, I like my 360 the most. Then the Wii, then the PS3. That's how it breaks down.

I hate this gen and I hate all 3 consoles. There's so much wrong with each in terms of my tastes and preferences in gaming that I feel that current trends have left me completely in the dust.

The Wii has a couple a good titles but not enough and with all the terrible shovelware, one's left digging through piles of crap to find the gold. I've hardly touched my Wii since I got it.

I have no reason to get a 360 unless I'm big on RPGs or FPS/Shooting games. I don't care much for this online trend with gaming and there's just not enough variation of games to warrant me bothering with the 360. There are a few games that catch my interest such as Castle Crasher (a x-box live game!) but just not enough games with a good concentration on a fun single player experience. Not enough good platformers or adventure games worth my trouble or money. I have yet to spend money on a Microsoft system and perhaps I'll never have the chance to give them any of my money considering their aim.

PS3 is probably the worst of the three. A great system with great power but just not enough titles to warrant bothering to get it. The only reason to get a ps3 is for bluray. System suffers from not enough exclusives either. Sure there's Metal Gear Solid 4 and Little Big Planet... but it's still not enough for people to pay the amount of money they'd need to get the system. Plenty other big titles like the Next Final Fantasy or Mirrors Edge are also availible on 360. So why would a player pay more to get these games when they can just get a 360?! It's terrible for them!

I have to say that this gen goes to the handhelds. DS is doing great. Sure there are plenty of cheezy shovelware games on the DS too but plenty of titles to warrant a purchase. It's not too expansive either. PSP isn't too shabby either.

I say the winners are handhelds for me anyway.

That is a very valid argument, I'd say. You're set to win with a handheld, however I find that you're a little hard on the consoles. Then again, it's your personal opinion.

Okay, let's do this again:

Reasons to get a Wii: Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition, Okami
Reasons to get a 360/PS3: Grand Theft Auto IV, BioShock, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3, Rock Band
Reasons to get an Xbox 360: The Orange Box, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Halo 3, Guitar Hero II, Braid, Rock Band 2, Mass Effect, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2
Reasons to get a PS3: Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

360 wins for sheer volume of exclusive, excellent games, but ultimately it's up to you to pick your favorite library.

Honestly, Metroid Prime is one of my favorite games. 2, too. 3? Not so much.
