    Best "Current" Gaming Console(s)?

    Here is part 2 of my video game questions.

    What is everyones answer to the Best "Current" Gaming Console(s)?

    My current favorite gaming console is XBOX, but I have more games for PS2 since I got it the day it came out.

    However, Playstation 2 still has games that are coming out that will be only for it, such as the Tomb Raider series, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, which looks extremely cool.

    More video game questions to come in the future!

    I love my GameCube, Xbox and PS2 are awesome too, maybe even a little better, but I am really disgusted at some of the games they have, like Grand Theft Auto, Ninentendo continues to resist carrying crap like that, and I applaud that, they refuse to sell their souls for a "mess of pottage". Also, I like Mario, and you can't get those on anybody but Nintendo.

    Yeah. I agree with you Delta. Manhunt looks pretty cool.

    ILUVSOCAL, I don't think that GTA games are crap. I personally love GTA 3 and GTA: VC, but that is my own opinion, and necessarily doesn't reflect everyone elses.

    I also like Mario games. They are pretty entertaining.

    I should rephrase myself, I don't think that game is crap (the graphics are awesome) , I think the values it teaches (murder, intimidation, theft, drugs, cheating, extortion, gangs, etc.) are crap [​IMG]

    I will have to agree with you there.

    I went to my local Best Buy and saw a 8 or 10 year old kid telling his parents to buy the Double Pack for XBOX, which includes both games, and I couldn't believe it.

    When I was his age, they didn't have all these violent games out.

    Since I can handle these types of games, and don't go on killing sprees, I enjoy these types of games, since I know that I will never go out into the "real world" and try to perform these actions and "copy" them on unsuspecting people.

    This is just my two cents.

    I don't think you would, nor would most people, and you and I know the difference between reality and a game like you said, but kids don't, and I worry they will grow up with a very skewed view of right and wrong, or at least a hard time choosing between the two. Those years are very formative, and I think many parents aren't watching their kids enough, or getting involved in their lives like they should. That said, I think the Xbox has the best graphics, but I still love my Game Cube. Okay, I've given my 1.5 cents (inflation brought my 2 cents down in value lol).

    I am all for a good splatter game. Give me a machine gun and some targets and I am good to go. Nothing bothers me.

    THAT BEING SAID:

    It is a proven fact that such things DO desensitize people (impressionable youngsters, at least) to shooting people. History Lesson:

    Enemy casualties in Vietnam started out low. 10% of american sopldiers were doing 90% of the killing. That was a problem. The solution?? "Sil-o-ette" (I can't spell that word!) targets. I got people used to shooting at the human form. Now take the games out today that I like so much. I may be mature enought to handle them without going out and killing people like Gamer said, but the imagery is much more intense that a black "Sill-o-ette". So the opposition DOES have a point.

    I just don't think that this country or any other can ever be "recreated" as a family-value-oriented society. It all comes down to personal ethics at this point.



    That was the deepest thing I ever posted on this site............Quick! Click this link!!

    The XBOX is "THE" video game console. period.
    Why? well because you can add a mod chip to it and make it play ANY game from ANY console right on the same unit, plus you can add a bigger hard drive and do nice cool things with it like connect live to other XBOX's and Trojan Virus your opponents console rather than shoot his character in a silly shoot-em-up game, hack the planet dude/


    but uhmm the best video game console is the Sanyo VM4500 phone.

    I am an Xbox gamer. I chose it becuase when it came out I was really into Counterstrike and Microsoft said it would have a built in NIC, oh and you can pug in 4 controllers without buying something else. I have been realy pleased with it.
    When ever my friends and I get together we have all three systems but we end up playing Halo all night. As far as the Best game console it is in the eye of the beholder. Spec wise they are all similar, it is just personal preference.

    Currently playing:
    Counterstrike on XBOX LIVE
    NBA Street 2

    P.S. Cop is right though, I like having the option to mod it so I can put a bigger hard drive and just store all my games on the hard drive.

    Yeah, I heard that it is kranium.

    I will get it for PS2 if it comes down to 19.99 on the greatest hits list for PS2.
