    Well, it's getting towards that time of year again where all of the systems (XBox, PS2, and Nintendo) battle it out for Champion of the home consoles!
    I've got a GameCube myself and attended Nintendo's "Cube Club" this weekend, which lets you play a bunch of the upcoming new titles before they hit the stores.
    (If anybody wants to post their picks for games to look out for on the other systems, please feel free to!)
    The Hits:
    James Bond 007:Nightfire (A hell of alot better than the last one!)
    Time Splitters 2 (already own this one!Best multi-player action out there! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] )
    Mario Party 4
    Tony Hawk 4
    Medal of Honor: Front Line
    Mortal Kombateadly Alliance (It's back! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] )
    SuperMario Sunshine

    The Toss Ups:
    Die Hard: Vendetta (It shows some promise)
    Legend of Zelda (It was hard to tell on this one. It was a demo of different levels [that kept freezing up] and seemed too cartoony!)
    Metroid: Prime (It just didn't do anything for me as opposed to the side-scroller version of the past)
    Star Wars: Jedi Knight II (LucasArts needs to stick to the piloting games)
    Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee (I know, but it was a pretty fun fighting game! Cool moves!)

    The Misses
    Star Wars : The Clone Wars (Just plain terrible! Horrible graphics and gameplay-and this one is mostly a piloting game!)
    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets ('nuff said)
    Starfox (Highly over-rated)
    Resident Evil 0 (I like the Resident Evil series, but it's time to make a change. Too repetitive of what's been seen before. This time, it's on a train!)

    I'm not really big on the sports games, but everyone I saw looked terrific, graphically speaking. I did play Tiger Woods 2003 and wasn't too happy with the controls and depth-perception after you make a shot. It looked great, but the game-play wasn't there.

    Did you guys hear that Squaresoft has announced that the next Final Fantasy game is going to be FFX 2 a sequel to Final Fatasy X? [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] The game is supposed to be set 2 years after the ending of FFX.

    As if! Okay, no one denies the game is a MASSIVE clone of Zelda and the flight portions of the game seem a bit tacked on, but the game is every bit worth the hype around it. Easily the best adventure game out for the system right now. It'll be interesting to see if the new Zelda can one-up it.

    Another must-have game for the Cube is Animal Crossing. Who would have ever thought that normal life in a video game could be so much fun? The only hitch is you need to make sure you have time to play this game every day until you're ready to put it down, otherwise your new Animal neighbors will get pretty pissed at you.

    [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img] C'mon, Stuff!! Animal Crossing? I actually bought that game and traded it in for Starfox! Animal Crossing seemed to be a good concept, but I couldn't stomach all the cutesy crap and being called "nutlet" by a squirrel!
    I got Starfox and it was way too easy. I traded it in for TimeSplitters 2 and wound up with the best game on the Cube!

    I'm the same way. I have a certain loyalty to Nintendo but I'm not discounting the pull that XBox and PS2 have. They both have great games that I'd like to have for the Cube and I'm sure it's "vice-versa" with those owners. My only problem with Nintendo: Too many kiddy-type games.

    Well, man, I don't know what to say. I guess you either love the game or you hate it.

    How many of us here are "gamers" that have been with the video game fad since the 8-bit NES or earlier and how many people jumped on board with the PSX? Just curious, because I've noticed among people I know that the "old skool" folks have drastically different tastes than the newer ones.

    I love the PS2 - and you cant get GTAIII or GTA Vice City on any other console.

    I'd get an Xbox or a PS2

    I picked up Godzilla this weekend for the Cube. I love it so far. I also played some of Star Fox and thought it was pretty impressive. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Godzilla's on my wish-list. I think I'll try to buy it used or when it gets cheaper. I'm just wondering if it's got lasting appeal or not. (When I tried it out, I was wishing that Mecha-Godzilla and Ghidrah were unlocked!)

    GOD DAMN SQUARESOFT!!!!

    Argh, they've fucked up every final fantasy since 7, and even then, they haven't had a great one since Final Fantasy 2... argh...

    Now they are breaking FF tradition and making a SEQUEL!? God damn those bastards!!!!!!

    Anyway, from a CS student (and gamer) point of view, you can't beat the XBOX. I mean, look at Halo.

    And if anyone disses Halo, I'm pistolwhipping you.
