PS2, XBox, or GC ?

I'm curious to get your views and opinions on which gaming system you feel is best and/or best in what aspets. I'll start, here's mine:

Graphics (or graphical capabilities)
CG, XBox, PS2

Versatility (other usages such as: online gaming, CD, DVD, etc...)
Xbox, PS2, GC

Immediate Multiplayer (needs no extra hook-ups)
GC, XBox, PS2 (GC simply has more fun four player games than XBox)

Variety (games for all people and/or all ages)
GC, PS2, Xbox

Quantity (amount of games)
PS2, Xbox, GC

Quality (your moneys worth for games)
GC, Xbox, PS2

Controllers
PS2, GC, Xbox (XBoxs too big & bulky IMO)

P.S. IMO sound does not apply being that it basically depends on what you have the console hooked up to.

My Verdict: Being that I already have a PC for online gaming, Ill have to go with the GC as being the best console overall.

it really depends on what you need. but i will say that i agree with your description/chart.

i would like to add:

Innovation:
GC, PS2, XBOX

Durability of the physical machine:
GC, XBOX, PS2


i have a gamecube and i love it.

I agree with that too

So thus far: 3 for the Cube - 0 for the others

IMO GC has the best quality games (# for #). Plus GC has the best variety of great games for all types of people. For instance, if you're into blood and sinister gaming, there's the Resident Evil series. If you're into adventure games, there's the Mario and Donkey Kong series. If you're into action RPG's, there's the Zelda series. If you're into action adventure there's the Metroid series. If you're into party games there's the Mario Party's and many others.

IMO PS2 does have the best and largest amount of sports games. And I also believe that XBox has the best shooters, but I also feel that XBox's label for "great" games is a tad overrated. Being that when you really think about it, there's Halo, Halo2, and maybe a few others.

GC

i have a cube and xbox

i prefer the xbox cos it gets all the great pc ports. if you are in to first peron shooters and violent games there isno better. plus its power far surpasses the other systems

second fave is the cube. the resident evil series is great but metroid prime OWNZ = best.game.ever. too bad it has too few titles and doesnt cater well to older gamers like me . graphically its nearly as good as xbox and ps2 sucks in terms of power

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

thats only if older gamers are only want games where you beat up hookers for cash. in my exprience, grown ups have more varied tastes

The GC wins hands down for me...its just so sad that in the world as a whole it trials in third...

Some stores in Britian have selling a brand new Gamecube, with a copy or Donkey Konga, with bongos, an extra gamepad and a memory card for 50-60...

Unbelieveable value, but it struggles to sell...

My fave Gamcube titles...Resident Evil 4 is truly amazing and glorious, Ive completed it, but unusually for such a game, Im playing though it again as its such a joy to play...

Animal Crossing is glorious...so much to it, never neding greatness!

Super Monkey Ball...classic

The Mario Party games...great fun

Mario Kart in mulitplayer is a great laugh...

Harvest Moon is very involving...

Donkey Konga good fun...

Gladius is a hidden gem...

I love my Gamecube! Im delighted the Revolution will be backwardly compatible, and hopefully will be machine of choice in the next-gen...

Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!
