    ...now what?
    I bought the kids an X-Box for Christmas - got all the fixin's, too - DVD remote and 3 more joysticks. So far the games I have gotten are NFL 2K2, ESPN MLS Extra Time & RalliSport Challenge. Do you think they'll like it? How do you guys stack it up to the PlayStation 2?
    My problem is the games - so many of the games I look at look like combat - either fisticuffs or shooting each other - neither of which I consider appropriate for them to be playing (oh, they'll probably wind up with Spider-Man, at the least). And then there seem to be a lot of "bad driving" games, too, stuff like Crazy Taxi or Grand Theft Auto - I'm not crazy about that stuff either (for those of you unfamiliar with me, I'm a bit of a fogey). So what games are left for me to get them? There's a Star Wars game with the ships - I don't mind shooting games where it's not face to face - like two starships firing at each other or jets or tanks or whatever - just don't like when they have to shoot or otherwise kill and/or injure people. But whatever happened to Pac-Man or Centipede?

    The new Sega GT 2002 looks good. Rallisport is supposed to be good. There are supposed to be 90 games released between now and Christmas. I have both the Ps2 and xbox, mywife has the Gamecube. I like the xbox the best. www.gamespot.com has a list of games as does www.teamxbox.com. Rumor has it Sega will be aligning themselves more towards the xbox. That should give games like Sonic to xbox.

    I bought my boys an XBOX as well. Check out Blinx for the XBOX. It looks like it will be good for kids. My 3 year old loves "Ape Escape" for the playstation 1 and I think i am gonna get him Blinx. My oldest son 6, likes the shoot em up games. Unreal championship looks good. I got them Rallisport Challenge and HALO so far.

    I know what you're saying billy - even as an adult, I don't care to get interested in most of those games. Last game system I owned was a super NES console, and I stopped buying games because I just couldn't find many of the original games that I wanted. I miss all the old arcade games myself. I have the Atari CD with Centipede, Asteroids, etc. on it that I still play on my pc sometimes.

    I downloaded MAME, thinking I could get into playing all the old stuff that way, but I could never figure out how to use the damn thing. [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    Matter of fact, any MAME users that could tell me in English how to make use of my download, please do.

    Sonic Team loves the Gamecube. Sonic's target audience is more in line with the demographic owners of a Gamecube. He ain't going anywhere.

    Sega's more mature games, however, are a different story.
