I'm neutral between Xbox and Gamecube. I don't like PS2 because everything on it is shitty, and if it's not, it's ported. All with the exception of the Final Fantasy series. But that's all about to change. i'm a serial-killer :)

PC will always be supreme, for the simple fact that it has 5000x more capability.

If I was getting a console, it would be X-Box.

All three systems have their strong-points and low-points.

The PS2 has the most games, many of which are good. But it's got the worst graphics of the three. It's oddly fragile too.

GC has Metroid Prime. 'nuff said.

Xbox has the coolest controlers (love the big ones). They have Halo. The system seems pretty big, but it's really not that bad. If company comes over, I just cover it with the mainsail of our sailboat.

I haven't played much of either, but the Gamecube is pretty damn cool. My vote goes to the Gamecube.

I haven't used a Gamecube extensibly, so I can't fairly judge on that. But I prefer the PS2 over the Xbox.

well I have a Ps2...other than Dark Cloud I'd have to say it was a wasted 200 dollars, I don't like Gamecube much for anything but the new zelda game, and Xbox only has HALO going for it. The new systems are sucking. I'd take Chrono Trigger and FF3 over any of the new games myself.

PS2. Games like GTA:Vice City, and it's DVD playing capabilities, racks of games such as the aforementioned, enormous game producing rights, and the ability to still play PS1 games puts it well ahead of the competition.

It does appear to be oddly fragile though.

That's exactly why I own a PC instead of a PS2.

And if you want to play PS1 games that much, just buy one for under 50 bucks. Or, again, get an emulator on your PC. i'm a serial-killer :)

I play my PS2 the most. I used to have an X-box, but after a few weeks of some hardcore halo action, I realized that that was the only thing the system has going for it, so I sold it and got a Gamecube.

I like the Gamecube the most, it just needs some more games. All I really play on it now is Smash Bros, Zelda, and Metroid Prime (which should have had multiplayer, but thats another thread entirely).

Some of the games that are coming out for GC really get me excited, such as Final Fantasty Crystal Chronicles. Gamecube gets my vote.
The true meaning of Alvistime is drinkin'. Drinkin' and revenge. Now drink with me deeply of the burbon scotch and rye until which time as we are fighting drunk. Then we shall find and beat the asses of the non-believers.

Why can't we not be sober? Just want to start this over. Why can't we drink forever? I just want to start this over.

Xbox. The GC has bad games in my opinion. You'll probably hate me for this, but I don't like the supposed great games.

I like both the PS2 and the GC, but my vote goes to PS2. It has a greater selection of good games (Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, etc.).

I would have to say PS2, even though I don't have one yet, but I hope to be getting one soon. I like Tekken Tag, Gauntlet, and some others. We have the Gamecube becaue my brother got it for Christmas, and I have only played Mario Party on it, so I can't really say if I like it that much.
