Which is your favorite, least favorite, etc?

Of the current Generation:
In order of favorite to least favorite, with 1 being the favorite.
1) Gamecube
2) XBox
3) Playstation 2

The PS2's graphic capabilities are just too poor in comparison with the other two consoles and the game selection doesn't interest me. Also, the PS2 is the most expensive. It doesn't make much sense. Why would you pay the most out of the three for the oldest technology out of the three? Everything I would want on the PS2 is available on the GCN, and usually, it's better on the GCN.

Overall:

1) Dreamcast
2) Super Nintendo
3) Nintendo Entertainment System

The Dreamcast rocks and you know it.

Your a filthy Fan Boy! That is all you are! A Sony Suckup! Anyone saying PS2 is the best is definately on some illegal substance of some sort. I will go with Super Nintendo! Now thats kickass. Then there would be N64 since I played it so much and then for the newer consoles....X Box because I dont own a GameCube and really dislike my ps2.

Amen to that. Console wars suck, but while it's still here....

1. Gamecube - The system that brought Nintendo & Sega together

2. Game Boy Advance SP - Portable SNES, need I say more? Leading to...

3. Super NES - RPG Heaven, and Turtles in Time, plus Sailor Moon games that I didnt know existed. The king of epics, and amazing sound chip.

4. Nintendo 64 - Super Mario 64, and Ocarina of Time. Nuff said.

5. Dreamcast - Sonic Adventure series, Crazy Taxi, Rush 2049, Hydro Thunder, Street Fighter III Third Strike, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and all that Sega coolness. A legend that will never die.

6. Sega CDX - Little known, but awesomely cool. A Sega Genesis and Sega CD in a portable unit. Add a 32x and you have one heck of an awesome console with every Sonic game you ever need. Add Streets of Rage, Hyperstone Hiest, and Zoop, and you have heaven.

7. Sega Saturn - Daytona, NiGHTS, Daytona CCE, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Sonic R. A system that never got the credit it deserves.

8. NES - The reason the video game market was saved from the Atari crash. The basis of everything we know today came from here.

9. Virtual Boy - Majority of games suck, but with Mario Clash and VB Wario Land, you've got some of the best platforming ever made on the world's most unique system.

10. The Nintendo DS/Nitro - Not out yet, but looks to be the best handheld ever. Wireless LAN gaming over 100 feet, 2 screens, and Nintendo's engineering. Add on it's ability to run all Game Boy games and you've got the ultimate handheld.


How's that list.

It is breaking the frames and stretching it making it harder to read posts. And that is part of the rules that you change it. I seen so many people asked to change the sizes of their avatar and they do it right away or get help. But we got a feisty one here.

1. Game Boy Advance SP, I just love this thing. But I'm scared The new Nintendo Nitro or whatever will kill my SP, as my SP killed my GBA.
2.Gamecube, I just love my nintendo games is all, and I'm a sucker for retro like most.
3. X-Box, I admit the only reason mostlikely is a unhealthy Halo adicction...
4.SNES, It was my all time favorite, Donkey Kong Country ate my childhood.
5. PS1, Loved it until I got a Gamecube.

Jak I&II, Ratchet & Clank I&II, Dark Chronicle, Final Fantasy X, etc.
What I'd like to know is if there's any game on X-Box (as in exclusive games) that could fit my taste of games. I'm really not one of that "X-Box is crap, I won't buy it EVER" people but there's not even one game I know that I would like to buy (except Splinter Cell 2 and that's just exclusive for some time).

Peanut
04-20-2004, 08:02 AM
Both GTA and Metal Gear are on other systems and GTA is utter sh*t after III anyways. The last PS2 game I bought was Kingdom Hearts. And Barkworm that's because there really isn't anything for Xbox. Halo, I suppose, but that game makes me sick to my stomach. Of course they have Fable coming up. As far as exclusives go both PS2 and Xbox basically get the same crap with each having a few good ones here and there, but at least Xbox isn't tainted with the dreaded FF franchise.

raphael_is_cool
04-20-2004, 08:31 AM
GTA went to other systems because it was so popular. I also love the Burnout games (which did the same) and NFS ones. I also like the Baldur's Gate ones and the FF ones are good. Dynasty Warriors also

I can think of one Xbox game (franchise) I like, Project Gotham Racing, and not a single Gamecube game I'd play

1. SNES - simply put, the best system of all time.
2. NES - has many classic games, but graphics and depth of game are just a notch below SNES.
3. Playstation - the saviour of FF games after SNES disappeared.
4. PS2 - Lament of Innocence is a pretty damn good game. And Soul Calibur II has got to be one of the most addictive fighting games I ever played.

If you love Final Fantasy the PS2 is the right choice. It's just that that console is so ... soulless. Plus the hardware sucks. I like the GC the most but there are more games on PS2 that I like than on the GC (I own about 16 PS2 games and only half as much GC games).

I think most of you know I do hobby game development for Dreamcast, so this list should not be too surprising:

1. Sega Dreamcast - awesome system in its own right, plus it emulates alla those old 8-bit classics perfectly. And the homebrew scene is amazing!!!

2. Nintendo Gamecube - best of the current consoles, with the best first party development. Sure the 3rd party is a little thin but Mario, Zelda, F-Zero, etc make up for it in spades. And it plays GBA games dood!

3. NES - the classic, nuff said.

4. Neo Geo Pocket Color - the great little handheld that could.


Right now I'm waiting for my JVC X-Eye to come in the mail! :D (for anyone who doesn't know, it's a combination Sega Genesis (cart) and CD console)

The soundtrack for Diddy's Kong Quest is even better.

You are most certianally right. It has to be the best VG soundtrack of all time. Awesome beyond all belief. Mineing Melenchonly is so original, Stickerbush Symphony is so emotional, and Forest Interlude is so enviromental. David Wise is such a genius composer.

I'm curious to know what games people constantly talk about when they say the PS2 is good...cause I sure as hell can't find any.

Ditto. I think people just say that because it's what they are expected to say to be "cool". The coolness factor is a load of crap.

Jak I&II, Ratchet & Clank I&II, Dark Chronicle, Final Fantasy X, etc.
What I'd like to know is if there's any game on X-Box (as in exclusive games) that could fit my taste of games. I'm really not one of that "X-Box is crap, I won't buy it EVER" people but there's not even one game I know that I would like to buy (except Splinter Cell 2 and that's just exclusive for some time).

Not any that I can think of.

but at least Xbox isn't tainted with the dreaded FF franchise.

Amen to that. Square and Sony ruined it. Maybe these GBA ports will bring back the magic.

And Soul Calibur II has got to be one of the most addictive fighting games I ever played.

You have to realise that PS2's version of Soul Caliber 2 has to be the most wretched version of the three, and I don't mean because of the exclusive character stuff *fanboy alert* LINK 0WNZ* The hardware is just pathetic. It even has slowdown.

Ahem, now that I've ruined my credability.... :lol:

Final Fantasy stopped being good at VI. After they they relied on flashy graphics and presentation too much to make the game "good".

I have two PS2s, one PSone, three GameBoy Colours, one Nintendo 64, one PC, one GameBoy Advance, Two Sega Master Systems, and a Sega Mega Drive. I've played X-Box over at my friends place, I simply find the controller laborious. Let's face it; PlayStation has the superior controller.

I don't even like Final Fantasy anymore...but I'll still buy the games, because I'm a consumer whore.

The only FF I like is IX.

I picked up a game called Whiplash in the discount bin at Wal-Mart yesterday, and while it's no technical marvel, it's pretty fun. You're a weasel who's chained to a rabbit, and you have to whip him around as your weapon. The goal of the game is to cost an evil company (who was experimenting on animals, and you escape from their grasp) alot of money and free animals. Some of the humour in the game is really funny. Well worth the $18 it cost me :D

Well, FF6 was the best FF game ever. Granted, FF7 was pretty good too though, and FF9 was ok.

I would have to say seven, in my opinion, was the best, followed by ten, and the original.

X. Good story, bad skill/magic system, horrible characters.

I liked the battle system, and the Sphere Grid wasn't THAT bad once you got used to it. It was the getting used to it that sucks.

04-21-2004, 11:08 AM
I did like the battle system in it, though. It was fully turn-based, so you could actually take a minute to go grab a soda or something.

Auron was indeed one of the most badass characters in Final Fantasy history, though.

04-21-2004, 11:18 AM
That's because he graphically looked nice. I still think Kefka from FFIII(VI) was the most badass. I mean, he poisoned a river. Who the hell does that?! That's right, badasses.

Dr. Doom
04-21-2004, 11:19 AM
Yeah, he was cool. I actually really liked Wakka, but maybe that's just because I love his voice actor (and Kimahri's) John DiMaggio. He does Bender and MANY additional voices on Futurama, and is probably one of my favorote VAs. I also really liked the idea of using a ball as a weapon like that.

Ninjinister

Indeed. I have found Mr. DiMaggio's work to be among my favorite voice acting. I hear he's voicing General Grevious in Star Wars Episode 3 as well.

And am I the only one who does not understand why everybody likes Kefka? o_O

Let them talk about Kefka, please! I'm sick and tired of hearing how great Sephiroth is. I'd rather hear about Kefka than anything FF7 related.

FFVI is my favorite FF game, so I really have nothing against Kefka.

Sigh...because he's got that sweet laugh, he poisons a river wiping out an entire castle, and he's hard as HELL when you fight him at the end. He's also a psycho clown guy, which is sweet in itself.

Plus Kefka was the first Squaresoft villain to actually have somewhat of more detail personality. Their previous end bosses were all "I'm all powerful and here to destroy the world! HA HA HA!". With Kefka you actually get to see him develop into a fully fledged psycho more and more and you can see how he builds his career from ground up essentially. Then again, it's just a small part of that game's greatness. Nothing wrong with Sephiroth either, but FF7 has WAY too many fanboys.

You got to be kidding, he was one of the easiest FF-bosses I could think of. The fight itself was very cool though.

04-21-2004, 02:29 PM
Well, sorry I'm not good enough...

Don't get me wrong, I'm a crappy gamer (every time a boss in MGS or Metroid Prime got too hard my brother had to beat him :goofygri: ). But Kefka was not very hard. On a second thought it might be connected to my Level-Up-obsession...

Ninjinister
04-21-2004, 03:16 PM
To be truthful, Chaos in FF1 was harder for me than Kefka. And his laugh reminds me too much of Naga from Slayers...

But each to his own opinion, I guess...

Just a reminder, and not that anyone's ruined anything yet, but watch out fer spoilers here. I'm only about half way through VI. This goes for all games, too. You never know what someone's playin'.

Well, Kurt was 'murdered' in real life, so it could happen.
