This thursday, Since my job has gotten a major rise in hours as of the summer, I am getting a PS2 and GTA3 and I CANNOT WAIT. I love my Xbox and will always cherrish it, will always consider it equal to the PS2 and will never sell it, but I couldn't Resist the Lure or games like GTA3, VF4, Devil May Cry, MOH: Frontline, and Brittneys Dance Beat (J/K about BDB) any longer. And with great games like GT3, TM:B, and Red Faction only being 25$, and the recent price drop, I couldn't resist, and I don't feel bad about giving in yet, and although I don't have it yet, I'm sure I'll be a very happy man this thursday. So, in closing, I just want to say, happy gaming, no matter what system(s) your playing on, Because, whether you want to admit it or not, you can't really go wrong with the big 3, no matter which one(s) you choose. Hell, I may even get a GCN soon also...

Cool... but I dont see why GTA3 is so great. I know its fun to kill people but isnt that all you do. The missions are always the same (kill people) but diffrent people to kill. Isnt that a bad idea for a game, I could agree that its fun but it has no point to it. All you do is kill, have sex and kill more!!

What do you think you do in halo? you shoot covenant and Flood. It doesn't vary much but it's still hella fun. It's not always about what you do, but how you do it. Oh, chilli, I really dont care that you don't care, because your just a spamming tard. I hate 1 sentence responses that give nothing to a conversation.

In Halo you have to strategize (Only if your playing on Heroic and Legendary) you have to out smart the very smart AI (lol). You think that becuase you only play it on Easy and Normal. But if you play it on legendary you will see what I mean.

Well, PS2 is a fine choice. I have one myself...but I don't consider it equal to my Xbox. If the DVD player in the PS2 was better...it might come close...but the DVD player is incompatible with a lot of DVD's. There are a lot of good games out there...so I hope you enjoyed your choice. I'm happy you didn't sell your Xbox though (which seems to be the growing trend). Also...all the reviews I have read say Halo is much better than GTA 3.

MOH: Frontline - Aim sucks ****!

To all the people who say I'm wasting my money, your all just a bunch of fanboys, because you'd know that the PS2 has alot of great games, as does the Xbox and gamecube. I decided to get the PS2 over the GC because it has more games that I'd enjoy. AND, i'm not saying I like the PS2 more than the Xbox, so stop making **** up. I like them all, because, unlike some fanboys *Cough*Mike, doom, etc.*Cough*, I like games, not systems. and know, I'm not just getting the PS2 for those games. I just didn't feel like writing all the games I want. So, again, I'm not going to be a PS2 fanboy, unlike some of you, I like ALL systems and don't feel a need to defend my purchases unless provoked. Let me buy what I want, and, like mom used to say, if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all :)

Doom, if you had actually read my post, or you need glasses, I'll make it bigger for you, I'M NOT SELLING MY XBOX, I just have a bunch of games that I love on the PS2 that I want to play. So, if I want to play online, I'll just use Xbox Live. and if all that matter to you is graphics, then your pretty sad my friend. And to everyone who's opinion is "XBox ROX, PS2 and GC SUXXX!!!!!" you have a right to your opinion, but that doesn't make it right, it just makes you look like a blind fanboy jackass. Why can't you admit that all the systems are good. There isn't THAT much differerce between the PS2, GC, and Xbox. Sure, it's very noticable, but just because the PS2 isn't as powerful as the Xbox, doesn't mean that the PS2 can't have good games, unless your idea of a good game is something with good graphics. I, on the other hand, like Substance. again, good gaming to every1, no matter what system(s) it's on. PEACE!!!

I think the only unreleased PS2 exclusives games that I would consider are Devil May Cry2, and FFXI. Enix actually has a couple coming out that look good though.

Anyway, I was thinking of buying a second system but I just don't have the money. Have fun

if i wanted to buy a 2nd system, id get the gamecube. the ps2 doesnt really have any games that interest me (gta3 is the only one, but i can just get that for the pc). the gamecube has alot of nintendo games like star fox, mario, metroid, and some others. the ps2 gets mostly crap games, like casper the friendly ghost, the winnie the pooh games, britneys dance beat, etc. lol

GOOD MOVE BRO. Welcome to gamer land. You are no longer limiting yourself to one part of the experiance but rather opening yourself up to the whole thing. I myself own every system under the sun (released in the USA) except for the NeoGeo CD system. I even still have Intelevision games. I'm sure you'll have a great deal of fun as I've had with your expanded horizens. My most recent purchase was a Nintendo Gamecube. It's quite cute, and unfortunately there really isn't much worth owning for it, I'd bought it for a few classic franchise's I've always loved. Mario and what not. Enjoy!!!!!

Do they not believe in periods in the UK? Or grammar.

After reading your passage, the fact that you have beaten GTA3 eleven times and you still like it makes complete sense to me.

I love all systems for the games. oh, and snoopy, I hope u know your saying the same damn thing over, and over, and over, and over... I DONT WANT A GAMECUBE RIGHT NOW OKAY!!!!!! I WANT A PS2 BECAUSE IT HAS MUCH MORE GAMES THAT I WANT! What you like is fine, Nintendo makes great games, but I don't feel like playing Nintendo games much anymore, ok. So please, stop w/ vthe gamecube stuff. I'll probably have 1 by summers end anyway, have all 3 systems and be done with it.

And although Jerred B is kind of cọcky and arrogant, I think he means well. He's simply trying to say that people should put aside their differences and dislikes of another system, not be such a fanboy, and buy all the current systems, to get the most out of life.

Or you could have just one system, and dedicate free time and money to it, instead of spreading it out over 3 or 4 systems, waisting even more time and especially money. When you are not sitting in a room playing all 4 consoles that you own, you can be outside and be active and get some sun. Having one system, Xbox, may mean you get more sunburn, but at least you remain somewhat lean and fit.

What the hell I'm talking about, I have no idea.

Listen, if you own just an Xbox, and love it, fine, great, fantastic, have fun. But I just want to broaden my horizons a little. I'm sure you all are great guys and thats why I want to drop this subject so that we all don't go stark raving mad over me buying a PS2. sound good?

07-17-2002, 05:13 PM
I did stick up for you at first, if you recall.

Regardless, I've owned all the brands, just not at the same time. I had two Nintendos (NES, SNES) and a Playstation, the original. I've loved them all, and now I own an Xbox. I just don't see how conventional it is to own all 3 or 4 systems, because then you have to buy supplies and games for just that many more. That was my only reason. I dislike fanboys myself, but I was only stating that most people aren't going to want to own every system, that's all. I see your point though.

Dyslexic Chaos
07-17-2002, 05:39 PM
actually, after the initial cost of the systems, contollers, etc. is gone, it's not neccesarily more expensive. For example, say you usually buy 2 games a month for Xbox, the 2 games you want most, then u buy a ps2, well, then you just buy the 2 games a month you want on either the PS2 or Xbox, not neccesarily 2 for eacxh, see what I mean.

That is just for all the call outs that you have made. Woohoo...your getting an PoS2, sorry you had to waste the money 2 years after the system came out. Save this crap for the Console Debate, cuz obviously, no one cares about it here. :rolleyes:

And btw, get off of Doom's back, if you really want to find out if he owns the store, why don't you go down to Brooklyn and find out.

anyone who says gta3 isn't one of the best games eva made deserves to have their xbox shoved up their fanboy ash

I wish him well and hope he becomes very happy and has great buisness, because as a fellow gamer, i respect him, but I was just defending myself, and I admit I went to far, and I apologize for that. I want a PS2 and thats final, as off 10am tommorow I'll have one. Like I said, u like Xbox only, great, have fun, It's still incredible to have 1.

P.S. whats wrong with my games? I think all of my games are great (except maybe sonic shuffle and Space channel 5, but they were cheap). I only buy about 2-3 new games a month. the only reason I have so many PSX and DC games is they are cheap, so I can buy about 4 or 5 for every Xbox game.

Hey Jarred I am not knocking you but instead of spending $200+ have you ever considered a mod chip.

It will save you some money! I understand what you are saying and all, but why spend 200+ for a handful of games, that aren't really as good as you might think! Just trying to help you out...

That would be really cool. Rare couldn't make any Donkey Kong or anything since the characters are licensed, but Conker would be pretty sweet to have!
