Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I'd say that the X-Box 360 is my favorite! I go over to my friend's house some times and I get to play Halo 2 for four hours; which is I hard game to play, but I do anyway, I get a shot at him every once in a while. But, yeah, the X-Box 360 is a really fun console to play on. Oh, and I got to play Fable in it one time; that game is AWESOME!!!

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I'm a Nintendo girl through and through! I love the Wii, it's so much fun to play. Even after having the system for almost a year now, I still play Wii sports on a regular basis.
I just got a PS2 and the sheer number of games on this system is awesome. I'm playing my way through the Resident Evil series on the PS2. (I know the games were released for Gamecube, but they're easier to find on PS2.) I'm probably going to get some Silent Hill games too.
I have an Xbox, I like it for Knights of the Old Republic, but just about other every game can be found on the PS2. (I don't like Halo)
I may get a 360 for Christmas, as I'm not too excited about the PS3.

The Sega Dreamcast was the ultimate gamers system. Seriously, ask anybody who owned the Dreamcast about the system and they are bound to get a little misty-eyed.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I love the Nintendo Wii (the control system beats the rest), but i tend to play on my Xbox 360 more because Xbox Live is the bees knees. Though that'll probably change once Super Mario Galaxy is released (i've been waiting for that game since the launch of the Wii).
I'm waiting for the PS3 to drop down in price, before i even consider buying one.

I still have a weakspot for the Super Nintendo, that makes me misty eyed

NES. It's the first and only console I own. I love it so much that I refuse to buy any new one since over 12 years.

I lost a cable and now it's not working anymore though.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

SNES! SNES! SNES!

I voted for all of the Playstations as well They are the consoles that got a whole generation of teenage girls into computer games

Oh, and the 360, of course. I actually enjoy playing games on that far more than the PS3, I just prefer the PS3's control pad.

That's a great thing about the Wii. I'm still in love with the older Nintendo games and with the Wii, you can buy some of the older games when you hook your Wii up to an internet connection.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I voted for the ones I used to own, plus an 'other', which was the Neo-Geo. My Uncle had one and I used to play on it every time I saw him. That console was great.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I'm a nintendo girl so I only own Nintendo consoles, I had a PS2 once but I only used it as a DVD player so I got rid of it. I can't really chose a favorite of all the consoles I own but I think I've spent most time playing on my GameCube ♥♥♥

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I have a Nintendo Ds (I know -- not a console, but it's still a gaming system) myself, and a friend of mine had the Sega Genesis, so I voted for other , along with the NES, Playstation 2 and the Nintendo Wii.

Re: The Best Games Console of all time (or till the next lot are out)

I'm definitely a PlayStation girl. I've owned a PlayStation, I have a PS2 now and still haven't given a PS3 a go but it looks awesome. I refuse to go anywhere near an XBox. The original NES also got a vote from me as well. That thing was one of my best friends growing up.

Oddly enough, I've owned all but the PSŁ and Wii.

I feel that way about the Master System. I loved my NES, but the Master System was just a better system. Better color, more reliable, and supported the best RPG of its time. Phantasy Star.
I love Sega.

I love Sega.
I loved my Master System as well, in fact it was the first system that I bought for myself.
