Cube or PS2, the Xbox is eh ok. Most good games are ether a GCN exclusive or are ether on the XBox or Ps2, and PS2 has been out longer and has some better game series than the Xbox. I'll probebly get flamed for this, but In my opinion if It wasn't for the Halo series Xbox would be nothing or atleast alot less successful than it is now.

The real question here is, "Which do you like better? PS2, GC, or Xbox?"

But anyway, I prefer Xbox. The graphics are amazing, and the games are really entertaining...

That's like the only good games that are X-Box exclusives, those two and Fable. Almost all other X-Box games can be gotten (with more features/better control schemes) on the other two consoles.

This kind of poll comes up once every two months, and due to the amount of Nintendo fanboys here (this is a forum for a Nintendo-only game after all XD), Gamecube always wins.

Well, basically the best from three Titan is GameCube of course, after that is PS2 and the WORST AND I MEAN IT is Xbox
Anyway Americans prefers Xbox European PS2 and Asians GameCube but the the best is sure GameCube because it has the best games (see Pokemon, Mario, Zelda, DK etc) PS2 don't have its own games but Sony and Microsoft have more money that Ninty (look Microsoft makes programms for Computer and is the richest company ever, sony makes other systems like TVs and Computers and has many money) that's why Ninty don't take games like Pro Evolution Soccer (it has ISS anyway).

I prefer the x-box becuase i find the graphics more tolreable nad the Ps2 has such long loading times unlike the x-box or gamecube. I hate loading times. I don't buy consoles any more becuase they always come out with news ones and the games are cross coamptaible so I have to buy the new to be uptodate. It is just a waste of time so I am sticking to my PC, N64, GBA, and Sega Genesis.

I'd agree with you Kairi, if I had the $ to buy all three XD

I wish I had a PS2 for the RPG's though. GCN has a glaring weakspot.

Kairi

Yeeah…I’m a spoiled little child.

I bought my PS2 almost exclusively for RPGs, so I can understand. They just do them better than the others.

December 31st, 2004, 05:21 PM
Have you bought Baten Kaitos yet? To me, it beats a lot of the ones that are available for the PS2. At least we don't get a bunch of lack-luster ones.

The Gamecube is the best of them all.Though some of there exclusives get re-made on a different system (Yeah you all know what i'm talking about Viewtiful Joe,Tales Of Symphonia,Resident Evil 4 all being put on to the PS2).What's up with that I mean Resident Evil 4 hasn't even came out yet and it was supposed to be a Gamecube exclusive.But Gamecube is never going to die!

The next gen Nintendo console needs to jump into online play, though. You can’t keep denying it’s here to stay with all the countless people playing online on the PS2 and Xbox. And it seems the PS2 is starting to get its online play up to speed, though still letting dial up play is bleh. XP

PS2 is ok but i like x-box better.

XBox has the greatest graphical capabilities and the best online abilities.
PS2 has the greatest 3rd party development and largest choice of games.
Gamecube has the best controller and greatest ratio of good games.

XBox has few great games
PS2 has the poorest hardware and a load of crap games.
GameCube doesn't have many, if any, great 3rd party exclusive games.

Overall, I'd say the PS2 is better because it has the wider genre range of good games but I prefer the GC because it has more great games. XBox is nothing without Halo (which is available on PC) and Fable.

X-box isn't bad. Its good.I bet you didn't play x-box.

I've played and Xbox before at my friend's house, and I got frustrated with the awkward controller layout within five minutes. i'm sure if I owned an Xbox, I'd be able to push the buttons instinctively, but apparently, it doesn't. My friend who owned the Xbox still had to look down every three seconds to see what button he was pushing.

The Gamecube and PS2 have better controller layouts and are smoother to operate. The Xbox's controller layout is its biggest flaw.

kthxbai. ^_^

Kairi
January 9th, 2005, 11:33 AM
All controller layouts should become instinctric after playing them religiously. Your friend just sucks, apparently. I think all three controller designs are fine. The Wavebird is a beautiful thing, as are Logitech’s wireless controllers for the Xbox and PS2. Sure you could say something bad about all three controllers, but really it doesn’t say a thing about the consoles themselves.

I'd have to say PS2, I have about 30 PS2 games that I never get tired of.The controler is nice and easy to use, and they have so many differant types of games that there's something for eveyone. I like gamecube too, the games are fun and the controler has an awsome feel to it, but there just isn't enough games, or enough varity. I really dont like the X-box. Halo is awsome and I'm sure there are a few other good games, but most of the games just stink and the controler isn't nice at all.

Stevo-kun
January 9th, 2005, 05:26 PM
Im not trying to start anything here but the reason why there isn't as many games for the GC is because the PS2 has been out like 2 or more years than the GC.

That's true, but Sony still has more 3rd party support than Nintendo.

Whether it's good or bad is up to you though. Some say that although Nintendo only has a few games, they are a few quality games. Although I disagree, I still see the point they make.

I don't like PS2 much but I do like FF abit because I love RPG's. Plus it is true that the Gamecube's games are really good. But being as I am a Nintendo fanboy I only have Ninteando cosoles. But I am not going to go any further XD.

I don't believe what you sayihng about RE4 because It is an Exclusive for Nintendo. Plus this is the last RE game they are gonna be making for the Cube then they are returning to sony, I know that. So they probably would end up bringing it out at that time XD.

Oh please Viewtiful Joe is one helluva boring game. It's like Devil May Cry move attaing and same beating up bad guys all over again.

Plus It depends on what people like to play I have all three systems hehehe!! Im rich!!

PS2 is good for RPG stuff and Dance Dance Revolution!!

XBOX is good for 1st person shooters like Halo and Fighting games like Dead Or Alive types.

Gamecube is good for multiplayer party games with your friends if you have any. Super Mario Party 6 is wat I play at sleep overs and stuff. Im almost 18 and I have sleep overs and playdates hehehe.

It's just that Gamecube sux more than the other 2 bc It cant play DVD's!!
and It cant play music CD's! RE4 is pretty good tho. I was just surprised that Nintendo got off of its cartridges tho when gc first came out.

Well the reason the GCN can't play DVDs and CDs is because it uses a mini-disc system XD. Plus it is the first thing I have seen that uses mini-discs. But I think that all discs will be like that in a few years

Please don't flame me here.

I was reading the whole thread,and I was thinking which was best. I would have to say the GameCube.

1. It has the best layout of bottons.

2. The reason the games for GameCube are lacking is because the size of the disc. It's mini. Meaning it smaller and it takes lower memory. I think they should offer two discs instead of one. (ASk me if you want to know what I mean)

3. Nintendo is always making new designs now,and they really showed the Cube in GameCube.

4. Connecting and being able to use your GameBoy for thing is really great.

5. Fair Graphics. Even with the carts,the graphics were always fantasic. The cds are doing good too,better than I ever thought it would be.

6. We got trust. Nintendo has always want we wanted. And that was the games. Not DVD player,or CD player. Always games!

That's what I think about the GameCube. ^^;

IMO all the consoles are the same thing, with a few changes and underutilized features. No one has done the GBA link right (Pokmon Collosseum is shallow compared to stadium) so the GCN = Xbox = PS2. The only difference is the games available on them. At least to the average consumer, who isn’t concerned with modding and such. That said, the PS2 and the Xbox do have a lot of big titles, but Nintendo seems to have a backing too.

I say PS2 is the best, GCN being a close runnerup, Xbox I really think it only has 3 good games. It would be nowhere where it is now if it werent for the Halo games and Fable. PS2 has San Andreas, MGS 3, the good FF games, a much better controller, and much more. GCN has what we know and love - the Nintendo games! Whoever said said Americans prefer Xbox, that is not true first of all, second you uare being racist. As for the people who say GCN has the best controller, what are you thinking? the PS2's contoller has always been the best, and you know it.

pokejungle
January 16th, 2005, 05:04 PM
I'd be inclined to place XBox in second, but, as you said DL, it has a lack of good games besides the obvious ones.

I like RPG's anyway, so PS2 is in second for me.
