Which do you own? And if you don't own any, which do you like best when you play at your friend's houses? And if you have more than one, which do you like the best?

And why?

We use our Playstation 2s as DVD players, too.

I've got the box and the PS2 - have been playing the PS2 more lately because I'm catching up on titles I missed the past couple of years. However, the box is by far the superior console. Better hardware, and best of all an 8GB hard drive so that you don't have to fuck around with those stupid memory cards.

I have to say I like the XBox karaoke facility - in the crowd I hang with, that'd be mondo useful. But I refuse to have one in the house, because I'd become a useless game drone and never get any work done.

It's bad enough having Civilization III on the PC...

The last game system I owned was a Colecovision back in the early '80s. And that was big shit back then, let me tell ya. The graphics (not to mention the damn prices) of today's games still boggles my mind.

Surprised

Hell, the next gen consoles are going to have such high-res graphics that older TV's won't even be able to display them properly

Xbox is already 1080I HDTV Compliant. Look at the back of some of the Xbox games, they are ready for HDTV now.

The gamecube is a fucking peice of shit. It is worthless to own, unless for some strange reason you like being around shit, which then would explain why you own a gamecube. The Xbox is cool, way better than the playstation. You can't beat plugging the xbox into the lan in your dorm and playing 8 vs. 8 halo, unless, of course, you are having sexual intercourse with a member of the opposite gender. (Or maybe the same gender, all you gamecube owners.)

Easy there!

The gamecube owns. The Playstation is an outdated piece of useless crap, that's only good for playing Vice City (and even that is better on the PC) or watching DVD's for ten minutes before they fuck up. The XBox is too big to get through my front door, which is a disadvantage. The controller was designed by an idiot with hands bigger than beachballs. And STILL ONLY HAS ONE GOOD GAME. That's better on the PC as well.

Have you seen the small xbox controllers? There is nothing wrong with those, but yes, the old ones suck copious amounts of ass. But I really don't think the gamecube controllers are any good either. I feel like I'm going to break the damn things everytime I pick them up. They just have a cheap feel to them. The best advantage of the xbox is internal memory and the ability to play people over the internet, neither of which you can do with the gamecube. I think the size is worth it, but yes, it is pretty damn big, especially compared to a gamecube. That said, the gamecube is without a doubt the most inferior console out there, and there isn't really an argument to the contrary that makes any sense.

Well, except for the fact that you CAN use the GC online. Granted not as widely as the XBox, but you still can.

Well, except that the only reason for owning an XBox is Halo, and you can get that on PC anyway. Try finding Mario, Zelda, 1080 of F Zero on the PC, or the XBox. Oh wait, you can't. How is it inferior (and please do not quote technical specs at me, as I can name a bunch of games on the Game Boy that own the XBox and have far less specs).

I have PS2, but XBOX is way better. PC games will destroy all the consoles, but I don't like em on my PC, they create too many problems. The XBOX controllers are way better also...try playing Medal of Honor on PS2 as compared to Xbox, it's a huge pain in the ass. Xbox has tons of exclusive games too, the best ones really. Wanna play Riddick? Sorry, XBOX only. Halo. Xbox only....most of the cross platform games look better on the XBox as well.

Wii or the 360, depends on my mood.

The gamecube is a good system, stop ragging on the man.

Ninja Gaiden is a great game, I'll grant you that.
Riddick was a 6 hour game priced at $60, no thanks.
I'm ambivalent when it comes to stealth games.
Crimson Skies was good, but short.
FSW was pretty cool.
How many people bought this last game? Ion Storm made great games, but nobody bought them, that's why they're gone.

I realize I'm seriously behind here, but I'm still rocking my original 'Box. Haven't had the money to upgrade and I'm still getting enjoyment out of it. Plus, all those games that I couldn't buy in college because I was poor? They're $20 now.

I will say that I've almost bought a gamecube a number of times, if only so I could play Super Smash Brothers and Mario Cart, and also have one of the party games hanging around for when friends drop by.
