    Well I have a gamecube and a ps2 and love them both. The only problem with the gamecube is the lack of good games. It has it's share but it is less than 15. PS2 is all around good in my opinion. Tons of games, wide variety. Great graphics, many planned improvements and so forth. As far as the x box I haven't really tried mainly because the controls are huge. I could play one for 10 minutes and get carpal tunnel. I guess Bill has really big hands (: But that's about as far as my opinion goes on the 3. Personally i love my computer, but there is just so many games that are meant for platforms, and platforms only, i think first person shooters should stay on computer and that's about it in my opinion.
    Oi Oi Oi!!!!

    the best games can still be found on the 48k spectrum....I mean it..original and fun they were. My mum queued for an hour to get me one! had to be 48k mind you. oh the fun.....................wait now, your question, has to be PC games...all the others are much of a muchness (if you know what I mean).

    consoles get very tedious, well i think so.
    Such is life.

    I'm with you all the way man.
    Who could forget such classics as:
    Jet Set Willy,
    Horace goes skiing.

    The spectrum was certainly a better idea than the sinclair c5 anyway.
    All spelling mistakes, syntatical errors and stupid comments are intentional.

    I'm currently enjoying the Playstation 2 for its DVD player (screw games).

    i just dont get why console makers make so much of a hype about their game system being capable of 64-bit, 128-bit, 256-bit, etc., when computer games are just 32-bit and still beat them out in graphics in every way.

    i mean, have you SEEN the screen shots for Doom 3? dang....

    Well, the PC does have quite a nasty bandwidth problem at 32 bit. Nvidia aren't going to be able to double the RAM on their cards forever.

    I like the playstation 2 mainly because it's the first system where I didn't have to rebuild my entire game collection. I love the fact that you can run the playstation 1 games on it. Nintendo used to kill me in that department.
