Favorite Console?

Discussion in 'Gaming Discussion' started by cpvr, Feb 5, 2011.

  1. So, what's everyones favorite console? Is yours the PSP? What about ps3, or the xbox? What about the other gaming systems? I know my favorite console would have to be the xBox 360.


    How about you?

  2. I own the Wii, the PS3, and the Xbox 360. I haven't touched anything but the 360 more than once or twice in nearly a year. It trumps all of them if you ask me.
     
  3. personally i would say xbox 360 because it is the peoples console meaning: it has games of every genre for any person it has awesome graphics, internet play and it is affordable.
     
  4. Well, we literally have them all. We use all of them for different things. So I don't really think I can pick a favorite because they really aren't all created equally. They all have specific things they are good for.

    Wii: Is fun for family things and is very promising with it's new donkey kong game and OMG we are excited for Zelda to be coming out.

    PS3: We enjoy our first person shooters on the ps3. You can play those on xbox too but we like the ps3 controller for it better. We also exclusively play ridiculous amounts of rockband 1,2,3 with it. Does the xbox even offer song download for the rockbands? We have about 250 extra songs and download more weekly so it keeps it fun for us.

    xBox360 - We really enjoy the kinect. The ps3 we have the move for but the kinect is really superior to it IMO. Agagain while we play all three we really enjoy them all for different reasons.

    We also have a lot of hand held systems.

    PSP - Has lots of great games and a lot of capacity to watch movies, listen to music, and internet for long flights and stuff.

    Nintendo DSi - We are pretty obsessed with these right now. We love the games available for them. Not really sure why though. The graphics seem pathetic compared to PSP but for some reason they are so much fun!!
     
  5. NES = awesome
    PS2 = awesome

    Probably my two favorite consoles. The dualshock 2 controller is heaven, too. It's BRILLIANT. <3 And you can't beat some of the classics, like Megaman, The Guardian Legend, and of course Super Mario.

    @LoveLove it sounds like you are really into your games. XD I'd love to have so many different consoles.

  8. I prefer classic consoles myself

    around the SNES, NES, PS1, Maga-Drive era you cannot beat all these classic console so many quality games on them beats the new games anyday.
     
  9. You know a console I REALLY miss that a lot of people have never heard of is the "Turbo Graphix" I used to have one and there was so many really cool games for it. I can't remember the name of my favorite game but man I want to invest in that system again because it was great.
     
  10. SNES because I'm old, but the Wii takes the cake because of homebrew and Netflix. My baby can do anything. Special mention to the PS2 for Final Fantasy Tactics. <3
     
  11. My favorite consoles are probably the DSi and the GameCube. I loved
    Star Fox Adventures SO much. <3
     
  12. The Guardian Legend is one of my favorite classic games. It's a shame more people don't know of it. I'm also a huge fan of Faxanadu, which they just added to Wii's virtual console. I'm hoping they'll follow suit with The Guardian Legend. I'm also a huge fan of the original NES Castlevanias.

    I'm a firm believer that graphics aren't everything. My favorite consoles are the 16 bit era ones, SNES and Sega Genesis, Shining Force I and II (Genesis) being my all time favorite games.
     
  13. You sound just like me. O_O XD Haha.

    The Guardian Legend was incredible, to me. Not only were the graphics amazing for an NES game, the premise behind it and all the thought that went into it... plus the insane music, unique enemies... Guh, I could go on. One of my favorites. Faxanadu is one of my faves too! I love how gothic the theme was throughout the whole game, and the theme of the World of Mist was always so creepily peaceful... Castlevania was also really good, I think I probably like the 3rd one the most, not sure.

    So am I. Glad to know I'm not alone. Even when you only have limited colors to work with, you can create some amazing stuff if you combine all of the different aspects together.
     
  14. I would have to agree wholeheartedly. Castlevania 3 is my favorite of the NES games, if only for the awesome addition of partners and the choose-your-path aspect of the game. That said, I think I've beaten the game maybe 2 times because it's amazingly difficult once you get up to the Death and the level prior to him. I believe the original Castlevanias were the most difficult platformers I've ever played.

    Unfortunately, Faxanadu is not as difficult a platformer. Some parts are hard, but the end is quite the let down. Still an awesome game though.

    The Guardian Legend did something I've never seen a game do since, and combines several shoot-em-up style games into one. I'll have to pull out the NES one day and see if it's still playable. The console is so old it tends to freeze constantly, and emulators just aren't the same.

    I also have to admit that I am one of the rare gamers who greatly preferred Zelda 2 - The Adventure of Link over The Legend of Zelda.

    I don't think I've beaten the first and third ones more than once each. The second one I can't remember; and yeah, the first one was infuriatingly difficult at times (you should see Egoraptor's video on the Castlevania games.) Those dang medusa heads always got me.

    With Faxanadu, picking up that glitched item in the World Of Mist made the game more difficult for me because it would actually make you weaker (when it was supposed to make you stronger) so that wasn't too bad, just frustrating. By the time you had a lot of armor, though, it was pretty easy.

    The Guardian Legend was just so unique and amazing to me, for the reasons you've mentioned combined with everything else, and the fact that the protagonist was a female... that was something that at the time didn't happen very much (still doesnt. </3) And I liked the second Zelda game too, not sure if I liked it more than the first, but I probably liked the music better.

    A lot of games freeze up if you haven't fixed up your NES. Besides pushing the pins in the connector down a little, and also if you still have the lockout chip in. If you ever feel like spending half an hour to have a game literally work 99% of the time, look it up, that's what my brother and I did and now I can play all of my old games no problem.

  16. I'll have to watch them at some point.

    I think what got me most for The Guardian Legend was the combination of so many game types. If you think about it, it had a great deal of RPG elements in there also. The same could be said about Faxanadu, and at that time RPG/platformer combos were a rarity. Hell, I don't remember any RPG platformers besides that and Zelda 2 until Symphony of the Night came along, if there were I never caught wind of them.

    I've never messed with my NES at all, honestly, aside from fussing with the pins on the carts a bit and getting lightheaded numerous times from blowing into them. I'll have to look up what you suggested, I'd like to play The Guardian Legend again and since its not on Wii, emulators would be the only alternative. I'd also like to play Ultima 3, haven't touched that one is some time.

    Sorry, I just realized that half of that didn't make any sense. I was probably distracted while writing that.

    Yeah I think the combination of game types really helps make the game appeal to a large audience. There really weren't many RPG platformers, probably because it was a bit of an atypical genre... although there were many rpgs that had platforming elements, such as Crystalis (or maybe I'm just imagining the platforming elements... XD)

    Anyway, when it comes to repairing your NES, it really doesn't take very much time or effort, just the right set of instructions. If you every get around to it I'd love to hear how it goes.

  18. Definitely an XBox 360 fan thanks to my significant other. He hooked me on Halo & Resident Evil 5 & Modern Warfare. I also really like some random others like Assassin's Creed && Fuzion Frenzy. I also like Marvel V. Capcom 3 on Xbox 360.

    The only consoles I own are PC, Gameboy SP && PSP PHAT. lol

    Thanks for the info, I looked it up a little while ago and the method seems pretty simple. Right now my NES is tucked away but I'm going to mess with it tomorrow and let you know how things go.

    How I didn't stumble upon this myself over the years is beyond me. I actually have 2 consoles, one of which stopped working ages ago. I'm going to see if I can do this to both and get them working.
